Gelato Strain Origin
The Gelato strain was originally created in California’s Bay Area by combining genes from Sunset Sherbert and Thin Mint GSC. These parent strains are the reason why people love the taste so much!
Interesting Fact: Gelato is often referred to as ‘Larry Bird’. The reason for this is the famous basketball player’s number was 33 and the nickname references its use of the 33rd phenotype (we’re nerds, we’ll admit it).
Growing Gelato Seeds
Growing Gelato can be finicky in the wrong hands but, when cared for, you will have a delicious crop.
We advise also reading our germination instructions for guaranteed results.
These are feminized seeds. Female plants, contrary to male plants, are the ones that actually produce weed. They start flowering when they receive less light per day, i.e. in the Fall, or when you manipulate the light cycle indoors.
The Gelato cannabis plant is an almost equal Indica/Sativa hybrid. It doesn’t grow all too large so it’s perfect for a smaller grow room.
If you are an indoor grower looking for a more hands-on grow – this is for you! If you are looking for a challenge, it can be grown outdoors – but only in humid climates.

Flowering & Yield
Indoors you can get truly amazing bud in about 8 to 9 weeks of flowering.
Outdoors you can expect to harvest your crop in October at the latest.
Your yields are a little above average with 16 to 18 ounce per 3x3ft area – although not much will be needed to get the results you want!
If you are a smoking veteran looking for a summit – worthy high you won’t soon forget – this is for you. Newbies need not apply. Gelato has incredible THC content and produces immediate and uplifting happiness – at an extreme level. It’s balanced on the back end by a piercing physical relaxation to provide a little balance to the overall experience. A unique feature of this strain is that although it has incredibly high THC levels it is a great daytime smoke. The reason for this is it keeps your mind fresh and your thoughts clear.
Because the effects are immediate. Right away you’ll feel the ‘high’ creep in only to be hammered with an incredible euphoric lift followed by settling into every nerve and cell of your body.
As with any extreme high THC strain, we caution newbies to be careful. This strain is powerful, and if you aren’t prepared can maroon you on the couch. With that said you’ll also experience traditional cases of dry mouth and dry eyes-just keep a bottle of water nearby.
As with any overuse, you might experience dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety. Don’t smoke too much and this shouldn’t be an issue.
Gelato Taste & Smell
If you’ve had any of our Girl Scout Cookies – you know what to expect. This strain is pure organic flavor packed from floor to ceiling. The smell is sudden and immediate and calls to mind GSC, Thin Mint, and more. Once lit you’ll pick up notes of sugar, sweetness, and an undernote heavily filled with cream and pine.
The flavor is a pure crowd pleaser. You start off sweet, pick up a few mint notes, and end with a long-lasting clean high note deep in your cheeks that’ll make you realize why people keep coming back smoke after smoke!
Uses for Gelato
If you are looking for relief from stress, physical or emotional, chronic pain, or depression-you’ll love Gelato. It’s high THC and instant euphoria combats even the roughest of symptoms.
If you are plagued with insomnia or struggle with nausea, this will tackle it w/o issue leaving you sleeping well and filled with food from massive munchies!
