Brief History: Gelato originated from Bay Area, California and was created by Cookie Fam Genetics. This scrumptious strain is made by crossing Sunset Sherbet with Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. Its parent strains are both famous for their full-body effects.
Don’t be deceived by its sweet name though. Gelato is a very potent one. After all, this mouthwatering strain has all the best qualities of its parent strains.
Gelato hits hard and fast. Its high THC level is known to induce powerful psychoactive and psychedelic effects. This isn’t a strain for novice users and those who can’t tolerate THC very well. But if you still want to try it out, do so with caution.

The terpene profile of Gelato includes myrcene, caryophyllene, and pinene.
Flavors/Aroma: Gelato lives up to its sweet name. It has a sweet, earthy aroma with delicious hints of blueberries and oranges. It smells sweet and woody as well, with robust hints of fruits like berries, cherries, and citrusy lemon and lime. You’ll also get some undertones of lavender.
