This cannabis strain has a flowering time of 60 to 65 days. It can be grown outdoors or indoors, although it needs plenty of sunlight to flourish. The plant has large leaves that are dark green in color and covered in resin glands that produce fragrant odors when touched or smoked. Its flower buds are dense, with abundant resin glands that produce a pungent citrus smell when broken apart.
Gelato‘s aroma is very potent during harvest time; it can be smelly if not properly cured or stored away from light sources (such as windows). Once cured, however, it has a clean earthy scent that reminds us of freshly milled flour – which makes sense since this strain does have some sativa influence in its lineage.
Some users say Gelato tastes like sweet baked goods such as cake frosting or cupcakes – not too sugary or overly fruity but still sweet enough so that you won’t feel like you’re eating something.
When you inhale Gelato, you’re greeted by a sweet and creamy flavor at the front of your mouth. It’s a little bit like chocolate, but with a hint of mint, which is actually quite fitting, given that it’s named after gelato ice cream. The smoke itself is thick and long-lasting, and leaves behind a soft, soothing sensation on the throat and lungs.
On the exhale, there’s an earthy gumminess that lingers in the back of your throat -just like when you’ve been chewing on dry leaves or sticking cloves into your mouth. The name Gelato has nothing at all to do with it being made from cannabis, but rather its taste profile: It’s rich, malty and smooth.
The Gelato strain is one of the most popular strains worldwide right now. This is because it has both sativa and indica effects, which makes it great for daytime use but also ideal for relaxing at night after work.
This strain has been known to produce a euphoric high with rapid onset and short duration, resulting in a happy feeling that can be hard to shake off. Gelato‘s high sets in quickly and is most noticeable in the head. The feeling of being on top of a roller coaster is one that many users report, but some say it’s more like being on top of a cloud.
The body buzz is present but subdued, which makes it ideal for daytime or early evening use. Some users call it a "relaxed high," and others claim it’s similar to eating gelato. It has been described as having amplified psychedelic effects like time dilation and sound sensitivity.
This strain can make your mind feel very clear and sharp, but it doesn’t feel like it’s clouding over with anxiety or paranoia. You might even feel like you’re floating above yourself—like the world around you is still there, but it might just be moving slower than usual.
