Gelato is one of the strongest cannabis strains, but is likely best-known for its delicious flavour.
Similar to its dessert-like name, Gelato is “said to be much like sweet sherbet, with fruit blueberry and orange flavours,” notes All Bud. A cross between Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, Gelato is a hybrid strain developed by Cookie Fam Genetics, a group of cannabis breeders from California.
Why is Gelato among pot users’ favourites?
In 2018, the word Gelato was a top search term on Leafly, a cannabis information resource that allows users to find products and buy them from licensed and regulated dispensaries. “In November alone, online users spent nearly 435,000 hours looking at the strain details and availability of Gelato at dispensaries near them, more than any other strain,” notes a Dec. 2018 article, Leafly’s Strain of the Year.
Gelato is known and sought-after for its potent effects that have been described as a “forceful experience of blissful euphoria and physical relaxation that can be quite the ride.”
