Being indica-dominant, this strain only grows to a short or medium height, and therefore is suitable for those who are planning to grow in an indoor setup and do not have too much head space.
Gelato is a well-balanced hybrid, with 55% indica and 45% sativa. Despite being indica-dominant, Gelato offers energizing and uplifting effects. Due to its enormous 27% THC content, this strain is perfect for those who enjoy a long-lasting high. It requires very little bud to experience its strong effects.
Gelato by Crop King Seeds was made by combining two strains; Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. The result was a very powerful hybrid, with THC levels of up to 27.00%! With a flowering time of 8 to 10 weeks, Gelato produces a huge 500g outside and an even bigger 700g inside. This particular strain is best suited for experienced growers.
It should be noted that this strain is difficult to grow. While it can thrive both indoors and outdoors, growers must use the right techniques. Monitoring the process is essential. In an indoor setup, using a grow tent is the ideal method as it is easier to monitor, and adjusting the temperature and condition of the setup is possible. For this strain to flourish, the environment should be kept humid and warm.
While this strain is tough to grow, its loaded THC content and above average yields make Gelato a must-try for those who want a challenge with huge rewards.
The hybrid strain contains both indica and sativa genetics, with effects targeting body and mind in equal measure. The head high is characterised by a rush of euphoria and a philosophical perspective. It’s almost psychedelic. The body high is less pronounced, but adds a relaxing touch.
It’s not hard to tell that these flowers pack a punch. A brief glance at the buds reveals a forest of trichomes and an ocean of resin. This sticky substance smells spectacular and holds an outrageous THC level of 28%. Such a high level of the psychoactive cannabinoid results in an immediate high. A single hit is enough to induce a high that’s capable of overwhelming novices.
It could be argued that Cookies Gelato is one of the most aromatic strains available. Her shimmering, bulbous buds emit an attractive scent of sugary sweetness—similar tones race across the tongue upon inhalation.
EFFECTS, FLAVOUR, AND AROMA
The more cannabis you smoke, the higher your tolerance becomes. It doesn’t take much for beginners to get stoned. A couple of puffs from a weak strain will do the trick. However, after several years, frequent smokers require stronger bud to experience the same effects. Cookies Gelato is one of these strains. She provides a monstrous THC level that thrusts the mind into an altered state of consciousness and suspends it there for hours.
Cookies Gelato inherited her mighty effects from potent parent strains Girl Scout Cookies and Gelato. However, this dynamic duo is known for more than their sheer power. As you can tell from their names, they both boast sweet and sugary terpene profiles. Cookies Gelato is a manifestation of the best traits from both of these legendary varieties.
Not only does Cookies Gelato produce savagely potent flowers, but she does so in significant quantities. After flowering for 8–10 weeks, she produces approximately 600g/m² when cultivated indoors. Growers can enhance yields through training techniques such as LST.
