Gelato is a strain designed for smokers who like to blast off into the ether each and every session. A THC level of 26% makes for long-lasting highs that take hold instantly.

Gelato has secured its name in the cannabis world as a delicious variety offering a balanced high that is both physically stoning and mentally electrifying. These genetics originated in the Bay Area of California, and resulted from the crossbreeding of parent strains Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC. Since then, Zamnesia has put its own spin on this strain by breeding Gelato, Gelato 33, and Wedding Cake; and in doing so, has given Europe access to stellar Gelato genetics. This mix of parent strains created a slightly indica-dominant variety that features 60% indica genetics and 40% sativa genetics. The primary objective of this breeding project was to infuse sky-high THC levels with a diverse array of tastes and aromas.

This genetic profile of Gelato creates a high that targets the body and mind in unison. The indica effects plunge the body into a calm state of relaxation and ease physical manifestations of stress. The resulting euphoria brings about a meditative state that guides you into the present moment and away from worries about the past and future. Alongside these effects is a cerebral and stimulating head high that triggers a motivating state of mind, making the smoker eager to pursue creative projects and socialise.

These stimulating effects work in synergy with the indica side of the high, helping to prevent any couchlock and excess sedation. The high comes on immediately after smoking or vaping thanks to a THC level that hovers around 26%. Novice smokers should approach this strain with caution and take things slow. Such enormous levels of the psychotropic cannabinoid make this strain a great candidate when it comes to crafting extra-strength extracts and oils.

This high is paired with a pleasant flavour thanks to the carefully crafted terpene profile within the flowers of Gelato. You’ll experience a wave of sweetness and earthiness when stepping into a grow room of Gelato in full bloom. When smoking a joint or blunt loaded with these flowers, strong notes of lemon, mint, and vanilla caress the taste buds.


Gelato produces medium yields both indoors and outdoors, yet the harvest lasts just as long as heavy-yielding strains due to the sheer potency of the flowers. Indoor plants are ideal for growers looking to keep their operation discreet as they maintain heights of between 50–110cm and are thus easy to conceal. Plants grown indoors produce up to 500g/m² of potent buds after a flowering time of 8–9 weeks. Plants cultivated outdoors in the elements will reach taller heights of 150–200cm, produce yields of 300–400g/plant, and will be ready to harvest during October.
