Gelato feminized strain Overview
Prepare yourself for a thriller with the magical Gelato cannabis strain. The irresistible aroma and sweet flavor have largely contributed to the increased demand for the strain’s seeds. This multiple award-winning strain is easy to cultivate and produces above-average yields.
Gelato is also famous for its balanced effects, which can be attributed to almost equal Indica-Sativa genetics. Are you looking for a cannabis strain that gets you high without knocking you over? This is the right strain for you.
What IS the origin and genetic composition of Gelato feminized seeds?
Cookie Fam Genetics developed Gelato feminized marijuana in California by crossing the legendary Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbet.
The resulting strain contains almost-balanced Indica-Sativa properties. Some strains might test 50-50% for the two properties, while others might slightly lean towards the Indica (56%). The THC for this strain ranges between 20% and 25%, which is relatively high for beginners. On the other hand, the highest CBD level recorded in this strain is 0.6%.
Gelato features also strike a balance between Indica and Sativa. When grown indoors, they can reach 100cm indoors and up to 200cm outdoors in height at maturity. The strain’s buds have catchy dark purple hues and are covered in orange pistils, which makes them a sight to behold.
What are the effects of the Gelato strain?
Gelato is so unique in how its “high” kicks in. After a few puffs, an energizing Sativa-induced high starts to rush through your body. At this point, you might talk more, laugh more, and engage in physical activities in high spirits.
However, these effects only last a few minutes before the Indica-induced effects creep in, slowly but gradually. The Indica high is characterized by calmness and focus, which lasts longer than most strains. In high doses, the effects become overwhelming, sending the consumer straight to the couch.
What does the Gelato strain smell and taste like?
When you break the buds open, they produce a strong sweet and fruity aroma, with nuances of orange and blueberries. During combustion, the aroma gets pungent, making the strain ideal for people without a strong scent.
Gelato has a balanced taste with a smooth white smoke. The flavor can be described as citrusy, with prominent hints of berries also coming out.
How to grow Gelato feminized seeds?
The stature of the Gelato marijuana plant makes it ideal for growers with limited cultivation space. Although Gelato can grow indoors and outdoors, it requires extra care since it is delicate. Keeping the temperature at 23 degrees Celcius and adding dried seaweed to the Gelato cannabis increases its total yield output. When growing the Gelato weed indoors, it is advisable to use a grow tent where it is easy to adjust the temperature and humidity levels.
Indoor-grown Gelato takes around 8-10 weeks to flower and yields about 500 g/m2. On the other hand, when the plant is grown outdoors, it completes flowering in mid-October and yields about 500-600 g/plant, which is huge compared to other strains.
Can the Gelato strain be used medically?
Yes. Gelato is an effective medical strain that is used to combat chronic pain, inflammation, stress, and anxiety disorders.
