Gelato was developed by Cookie Farm Genetics and was named for its fruity and sweet aroma, not unlike the creamy Italian dessert.
The flowers showcase deep green and purple hues and are covered with a coating of fine crystalline trichomes.
Gelato is a Hybrid strain created by crossing Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies with Sunset Sherbet, two super-sweet strains that combine to create the ultimate treat.
Gelato Hemp Flower Review
The CA-native strain is not quite as sweet and succulent as its namesake and carries an undercurrent of skunk, which is common among Cookie Farm hybrids, but it’s definitely an enjoyable and tantalizing strain.
The skunky notes are much more prominent when the buds are smoked, but you can take the edge off by vaping them instead.
The pleasant aroma also makes them a good choice for making a little hemp tea, although you’ll notice more prominent effects when you smoke them.
Benefits of Gelato
We can’t help but picture Cookie Farm Genetics as the Willy Wonkas of the hemp world. They have created some enticingly-named strains over the years and Gelato is one of the best.
But don’t let that sweet and innocent name fool you, as these hemp flowers pack and punch.
The effects are somewhere in the middle of uplifting and relaxing and it’s often labeled as a daytime strain.
Of course, everyone responds differently, and just because someone else is able to use it to help them study and work doesn’t mean you won’t feel groggy and sedate after a bong or two.
