The Strain: Gelato

Gelato is a luring West Coast craft hybrid cannabis strain grown from parents Thin Mint GSC and Sunset Sherbert with a widely enticing flavor. Native to the California Bay Area from creators Cookie Fam Genetics, this is a top-shelf strain. With plenty of THC, little to no CBD and high CBG, a rare cannabinoid known as the precursor to CBD, CBC, and THC; it’s no wonder this strain is so admired.

The Chemistry: Gelato

Dominant terpenes in Gelato include Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, Limonene, and Humulene. Creating the perfect sweet, spicy, citrusy and earthy-like aroma. Gelato has standout visuals and taste, creating a pure dessert-like satisfaction and sweetness, perhaps explaining its name.
