Gelato is an indica-dominant hybrid cannabis strain that emits a scent reminiscent of its name being sweet and fruity with hints of lavender, berries, and citrus. Buds of Gelato are various shades of both light and dark greens, having very slight purple and blue hues with vivid burnt orange pistils.
THC levels of Gelato average at 20%. Consumers have reported its effects to cause an increase in both energy and focus as mood vastly improves and the stresses of the day melt away. Their bodies fully relaxed, allowing a sense of well-being to overtake them. This strain has also been claimed by reviewers to help provide a good night's sleep once the high wears down. Users say adverse effects besides your typical cottonmouth and dry eyes are rare with Gelato, however, they note many strains can cause paranoia or anxiety when consuming above tolerance levels.
