About this Hybrid Strain
Gelato is a hybrid cannabis strain that’s indica-dominant, emitting a scent reminiscent of its name being sweet and fruity with hints of lavender, berries, and citrus. Its buds are various shades of green, having very slight purple and blue hues.
THC levels average at 20%. Its effects have been reputed to cause an increase in both energy and focus as mood vastly improves and stresses of the day melt away. The body may fully relax, allowing a sense of well-being to drift over all sensation as some have described. Reviewers note this strain’s ability to help alleviate depression, fatigue, and even insomnia because of the sleepiness that heavies the eyes once the high wears down.
Adverse side-effects besides your typical cottonmouth and dry eyes are rare with Gelato, however, note that many strains can cause paranoia or anxiety when consuming above tolerance levels.
Gelato is a cross between Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC, so it’s no wonder where it gets its delicious scent and taste from. You’ll often find it as a top shelf strain because of this, so expect to pay just a tad more when purchasing this strain.
