When Cookie Fam Genetics decided to cross Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies with Sunset Sherbet, what they ended up with was somewhat unexpected. Through much trial and error, they finally produced a phenotype that they were happy with, and this strain has become known as “Gelato.” A well-balanced hybrid that leans slightly more indica, this gorgeous and delectable weed type includes roughly 56% indica and 44% sativa genetics, yet seems to offer overall energizing and uplifting effects – not always the case with strains that contain more of the sedative indica genes.
One of Gelato’s features that really sticks out, however, is its immense THC content – usually around 18% even in the lowest recorded test results. The THC content of most specimens ranges between 20-26%, which is of course plenty of punch for those who desire herb that not only lasts a while, but also requires very little flower to actually be consumed before the strong effects are experienced.
Gelato presents the cannabis community with an original origin and intriguing genetic history, all tied together by the fact that this cannabis type is as delectable as your post-dinner treat — and promotes deep physical relaxation with flavors of citrus, berry, and sweet treats. Following in the footsteps of its parent strains (Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC), Gelato is in essence named after the popular Italian dessert. It is a tantalizing hybrid cannabis strain with buds that tend to bloom in dark purple hues, and illuminated by fiery orange hairs that are gorgeous to glance upon.
