Gelato Cannabis Seeds
The name Gelato conjures up a tantalizing image of creamy Italian-style ice cream. But compared to other iconic marijuana strains, these are relatively new cannabis genetics. It comes from the hybridization between two super tasty varieties that are all the rage in the United States: Sunset Sherbet and the Thin Mint phenotype of the famous Girl Scout Cookies - a cross developed by Cookie Fam Genetics. They are a group of breeders from San Francisco Bay. Among them was Mario Guzmán, also known as Sherbinski and at the time the creator of Sunset Sherbet. Since then, these breeders (and the respective companies that they have subsequently created separately) have developed a wide variety of Gelato phenotypes, which are normally represented by numbers that designate their distinctness from the original hybrid and help determine inherent qualities.
¿what are the different types of Gelato cannabis seed?
Phenotype number 33, for example, is the one most often associated with the original strain, and is popularly known as Larry Bird – named after the Boston Celtics basketball legend who wore that number on his jersey. This phenotype # 33 also turns out to be the magic number for what is known as Green Gelato, another name by which this hybrid is known that stands out for its potency in the current cannabis imagination. There are also Gelato phenotypes that simply carry delicious nicknames. For example, Gelato # 41. With a higher THC potency, it is considered one of the best genetic lines currently available due to its strong citrus, skunk and earthy aroma. It is sometimes referred to as ‘Bacio Gelato.’ Sherbinski himself gave it this nick name. Another example is 'Mochi Gelato' (# 47), which has a fruity, minty aroma and remarkable energizing effects. Or the ‘Gello Gelato’ (# 43) - a cross between Mochi Gelato and Bacio Gelato that results in a very intense pine and fruit aroma, with more balanced effects than Bacio and softer than Mochi. Not all of these variants in Gelato are directly descended from their first cross: some are also hybrids of other Gelato varieties and others have been crossed with completely different genetics. For example, the Runtz variety is currently one of the most popular in North America, combining the spectacularly strong genetics of Gelato # 33 with the arch-award-winning Zkittlez. It is also necessary to highlight the crossing of Gelato # 41 with Blueberry in the hybrid known as Blue Gelato, whose phenotypes can show bluish and violet tones in the leaves and flowers, in the style of purple genetics, which give a really appetizing appearance to the buds. Regardless of its cross, the name Gelato is synonymous with a deliciously sweet marijuana that produces a very creamy smoke.

Gelato is a well balanced hybrid that is approximately 55% indica and 45% sativa genetics; it offers energizing effects in general, something that is not always the case with indica-dominant varieties. The THC content of most phenotypes ranges from 20-26%, which of course is very potent for those who want a weed that not only lasts a while, but also requires very little flower to consume. Not to mention its subsequently strong effects. The CBD level is approximately 0.1%, with some phenotypes reaching as high as 1.50%
¿What is the visual appeal of Gelato varieties?
Compared to other genetics, Gelato buds tend to be small but with the dense and compact bud structure characteristic of many indica strains. And they typically bloom with shades of purple and purplish coming through, illuminated by intensely orange pistils and a shimmering layer of crystalline resin that looks as if they have been coated in sugar. All of this together makes them very beautiful to look at. These purple tones appear when high concentrations of pigments called anthocyanins are stimulated by a decrease in night temperatures during the flowering stage.
¿Why are Gelato Varieties so delicious?
This cannabis strain offers a unique and unforgettable aroma thanks to its distinctive terpene profile. Gelato has combined all the smooth, fruity appeal of Sunset Sherbert with the earthy and herbaceous goodness of Thin Mints Cookies. Traces of Sunset Sherbet can be detected with the scent of spicy orange, but it takes its sweet and fruity aroma from its other parent – Cookies. The cookies imparts unmistakable notes of berries and a slight woody touch. As a result, Gelato has one of the most pleasant aromas among the newly minted cannabis strains. One of the most common terpenes found in Gelato is beta-myrcene, which can also be found in bay leaves or thyme. It also features beta caryophyllene terpene with its spicy and earthy aroma. Alpha pinene is also responsible for the pine touch in Gelato strains and limonene adds its citrus aroma to the mix. Lastly, linalool adds a lavender-like aroma to the complex terpene profile of Gelato marijuana strains. It should be noted that the terpenes of Gelato, and of any other cannabis plants, act in synergy with cannabinoids, modulating their effect and providing a mentally stimulating and physically pleasant sensation.
