Gelato plants are the result of a very successful cross between Thin Mint Cookies and Sunset Sherbert, which originated in sunny California on the West Coast bay area of the United States. With a scent and flavor as tasty as it sounds combined with the experience of blissful euphoria as well as physical relaxation, the famous Cookie family yet again adds another stellar hybrid strain that quickly achieved worldwide fame.
Growing Gelato seeds
Gelato feminized is one of those high-quality strains that can be grown indoors as well as outdoors. One or more filters are advised when growing indoors to keep the smell under control and unwanted bystanders at bay.
The growing difficulty for these cannabis seeds is categorized as moderate. This is equal to similar strains like Girl Scout Cookies and Sour Cookies.
Indoors take into account that the Gelato strain needs about 8 to 9 weeks of flowering. Outdoors the recommended harvest time is around early October.
With an average height ranging between 90 – 110cm / 35 – 43 Inch indoors and up to 180 – 200 cm / 70 – 79 Inch outdoors, the Gelato cannabis plant is of medium height. This makes Gelato feminized ideal for a smaller grow room and even small spaces such as a cupboard closet.
Considering she’s a relatively shorter plant, in terms of yield these feminized seeds surprised us all: 450 Gr. / 16 Oz. per m² and up to 700 Gr. / 25 Oz. per m² outdoors.
The appearance of Gelato feminized
In appearance, the Gelato plant is characterized by its compact dense buds that bloom in magnificent hues of purple, complemented by fiery orange pistols and a thick glistening coating of icy white crystal resin.
This abundant coating of trichomes bears witness to the potency of the strain.
Gelato takes allure to a whole new level. The bud’s flowers take on a deep dark color that gently fades as the plant matures, which makes the end product a magical plethora of hues and crystals that are a sight for sore eyes to behold.
(Colors and shades may vary depending on phenotype and cultivation methods of the cannabis seeds).
The scent and flavor of the Gelato cannabis strain
The sweet fruity smell is one of the favorite features of fans of this cannabis strain. This fragrant strain will treat you to an intense aroma with hints of grapes and a spiciness that intensifies when you grind the buds.
Gelato, like its deliciously sweet-sounding name, is nothing if not a treat. Get ready for some indica-dominant characteristics, such as sweet, fruity, and woody aromas, with a hint of tangy citrus and vanilla. Some very vigilant users even reported tasting a hint of thin mint flavor when they exhaled.
Effects of Gelato feminized
Gelato has an impressive THC level of around 22% which provides an instant feeling of well-being from the first hit. The immediate and uplifting cerebral high and sense of overall bliss combined with a deep physical relaxation to balance the overall experience is a delightful treat to every cannabis smoker looking for just a little extra.
Gelato can fill your mind with creative thoughts. Combined with your newfound energy, this can result in amplified productivity for a short time. And when you wait a while, the initial cerebral buzz eventually runs its course through the body where it works wonders relieving tension in the muscles.
Because she allows you to remain a clear head and thoughts despite the high THC level, Gelato is a very suitable smoke for daytime.
A word of caution to the newbies with a less high tolerance; easy does it with this potent variety. In larger amounts and when not used to it, you could be prone to couch lock, dry mouth, and dry eyes.
