When we hear gelato we think of delicious ice cream, and this new strain of gelato weed is no different when it comes to delicious taste. Gelato strain has a solid impact on the palate that delivers a sweet, pleasurable sensation.
The gelato strain is taking the cannabis industry in South Africa by storm and there have been many different types released so far, it has become renowned for its powerful yet unique feel when ingested, vaped or smoked.
It gives a well-balanced experience and doesn’t give the user a crashing feeling at the end of the high, it has a citrusy look, smell and taste.
A bit about gelato strain
Gelato strain was created by mixing Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet, after much trial and error they finally came up with the hallowed Gelato strain. Created to become a very well balanced hybrid of Indica and Sativa, at 56%-44% respectively.
This one isn’t too cerebral for beginners, offering an energizing high and an uplifting mood that is good for social settings or to mellow out with over a movie. This is quite rare for a hybrid that is mostly dominated by the Indica strain
One thing that will interest a lot of cannabis enthusiasts it the fact of how much THC it has! The lower end is still around 18% in THC content, so there is a lot of bang for your buck, the THC is normally around 20-26% though in most cases.
This is another thing that makes Gelato so popular, its reliable and the effects last for a long time even in small doses, giving strong effects in a relatively short time.
Rich in history and still feels like a new player, sometimes you might want to skip pudding and go straight to the deeply relaxing, flavoursome vibes of berry, sweet citrus and all of your favourite desserts with ice cream rolled into one.
Gelato strain clearly gets its name from the Italian ice cream that we all love, with dark purple blooming buds, illuminated with vibrant orange hairs that look like they are lighting up the buds with the essence of fire!
Gelato strain may not be a household name just yet but we believe it will become one in the next couple of years.
Gelato flavour, texture, aroma
The pungent aroma of gelato is easily recognisable and it will be an obvious smell too, it is hard to carry these buds with you discreetly, so keep that in mind as it may be a deal breaker for some of you.
If you are somebody who can deal with the sweet stench then you will be happy with your choice, sometimes the smell is the most delicious part for cannabis users. The aroma of the buds is reminiscent of orange and blueberry flavours with distinct gelato salutes.
Tasting impactfully sweet with wood flavours and an aftertaste that is a bit like lavender. It will go well with most people’s likes and wants because the flavour is so welcoming across the board.
Medical benefits of Gelato strain
Gelato strain is beneficial mentally and physically, offering a lot of medical benefits for a lot of different needs. Offering extreme physical relaxation and body relaxing effects that could help with muscle spasm, migraines, headaches, inflammation and people who suffer from chronic pains.
It could also help with sleep issues or act as an aid for people who suffer from insomnia, it has a very strong THC content. At present, it is not easy to find edibles of the gelato strain, which may seem ironic given the name of this cannabis variety.
We also expect that to change as the plant becomes more popular.
People could benefit mentally from ingesting gelato if they suffer from anxiety, depression, or stress. This list is not exhaustive but these are the main conditions that gelato has the biggest impact on.
