Tasting as mouth watering as it sounds, Gelato is a dessert lover’s dream. It’s almost as if an ice cream shop and the ripest fruits came together to create this strain; being a hybrid, the best of both worlds is achievable here. It isn’t going to make you so tired to the point of unproductivity and it also isn’t going to give you energy to complete a whole list of things, Gelato is somewhere in that halfway point. This median point is going to create the most stable environment for you to achieve whatever your day entails. Meant to tackle any kind of day, Gelato is the strain you want by your side.
Gelato is a cross between Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, named in homage to its sweet aroma. Also known as Larry Bird, Gelato (#33) was first cultivated in Northern California’s Bay Area and is derived from a deep bank of genetics created by the Cookie Family, the Sherbinskis family, and cultivator Mario Guzman.
The cultivators parted ways following its creation, and the cultivator who possesses the most “stable version” of Gelato genetics is up for debate. Cookies cultivates a few phenotypes and descendants of the strain named Gelato #42, Dolce Gelato, and a sun-grown Gelato. Sherbinskis grows four stabilized Gelato phenotypes in its rotation as well: Gelato #41 (Bacio Gelato), Gelato #43 (Gello Gelato), Gelato #47 (Mochi Gelato), and Gelato #49 (Acai Berry Gelato). Per Sherbinskis, the #33 phenotype is no longer in cultivation.
