Indica dominant hybrid (55% Indica /45% sativa)
A timeless classic, the Gelato weed strain is one of the most famous names in the cannabis community right now. A rare, perfectly balanced hybrid was created by crossing two insanely delicious strains, namely the Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and the Sunset Sherbert together. No wonder the strain is so delicious and enjoyable.
Gelato is also an incredibly potent strain and possesses an enjoyable high. In fact, it has been backcrossed numerous times, and today has a large number of children as well. In particular, one phenotype of the original Gelato weed strain is the Larry Bird, which has been named after the famous NBA player.
Gelato THC Content
Gelato is a slightly Indica dominant hybrid (55% Indica /45% sativa)
While there are many evenly balanced strains present in the market, few are as potent or famous as Gelato. The strain’s THC content is extremely high and rarely ever goes below the 20% to 25% range. No wonder the strain was used to breed so many potent and powerful strains.
At the same time, Gelato is another one of those strains which do not work well with beginners. The effects are just too heavy and strong, and can often be a bit too much for inexperienced users to handle.
Even though Gelato contains equal amounts of both Indica and Sativa content, the effects lean slightly towards the Indica side. The high begins quickly and hits the user with all that it’s got, sometimes even before they’ve had a chance to exhale. A head rush can be expected at the very beginning, distorting perceptions and throwing the user off guard. In fact, if you are not prepared for something like this, it may well cause paranoia and anxiety.
In addition to the psychedelic effects, Gelato also causes heavy, body-based effects, which are extremely relaxing and discourage activity. And even though the effects are not sedative, they can still cause a couch lock situation, forcing you to stay in one place and explore your newfound dimension in detail.
Medically, Gelato is a useful strain for treating conditions such as spasms, chronic pain, inflammation, fatigue, headaches or migraines, and even depression and PTSD.
