Gelato Strain Origin
Like many high-powered but tasty strains, Gelato has some Girl Scout Cookies heritage. In fact, this delicious blend comes from a combo of Thin Mint GSC and Sunset Sherbert strains.
You may hear about the Gelato strain under another name – “Larry Bird.” That’s because of a bit of nerdy basketball trivia. The famous basketball player’s number was 33, and Gelato was the 33rd phenotype tested.
What Are Gelato Autoflower Seeds
Before autoflowering plants, the weed-growing world looked a lot different. The only available species were indica and sativa. Although the two are very different, they shared one important trait: they would start growing in spring and wouldn’t flower until the days turned shorter in fall. When these plants were grown inside, they would only flower when the lights were left off for about twelve hours a day, so growers had to adapt.
However, in the ‘80s, a new species from Siberia appeared. This distant weed relative was known as Ruderalis. No matter what, these plants were starting to flower in about eight weeks. The amount of light didn’t matter. When ruderalis plants were bred to indica or sativa plants, the resulting strains would flower automatically. From there, autoflowering plants were born.
Nowadays, many popular strains are available as autoflowers. The plants are generally smaller, but they’re ready to harvest quickly and simple to grow. Autoflower plants are great for getting multiple harvests a year, growing in a small space, or as a first strain for new growers.
Growing Gelato Seeds
Gelato autoflower plants are relatively easy to grow, like most autoflower strains. Gelato autoflowering plants produce small, well-balanced indica/sativa hybrids that stay compact and bushy. It’s the perfect choice for a shorter growing space.
Gelato autoflowering plants can be grown indoors or out with relative ease. The strain does appreciate some humidity, so steamy outdoor climates are best.

Flowering & Yield
Like all autoflower plants, Gelato autoflowering strains are ready to harvest in just eight weeks. Yields for this strain range from 4-6 ounces per square yard indoors. You can also plant outdoors and get similar results.
Experiencing the Gelato Autoflower Strain
The Gelato experience is truly unforgettable, even for expert smokers. This sweet strain is known for an intense high even for those with high tolerance levels. In fact, new users are recommended to tread carefully! Gelato’s THC levels can reach 26% regularly, and the effects kick in just about immediately. The result is an incredibly uplifting sense of euphoria that kicks you into activity.
Shortly after the head high, the body buzz follows, leaving you deeply relaxed on a physical level. The combination of the two leads to an impressively clear-headed high that’s great for daytime users. The effects of Gelato are nearly immediate. By the time you exhale the first toke, you’ll feel the high start to come on. You’ll be lifted up by the euphoric glee before settling into a relaxed sensation.
Since this strain has an intense THC concentration, new smokers are advised to proceed with caution. One toke too far can leave new users couch-locked for the evening. It’s also smart to keep water nearby, just to make sure you avoid uncomfortable cases of dry mouth. Too much of this strain can lead to dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety. Moderate dosages are recommended for the best results.
Gelato Taste & Smell
Just like its parent strain, our famous Girl Scout Cookies, Gelato is a flavor-packed experience. There’s a serious note of sugar, florals, and general sweetness in the scent, with just a hint of pine and cream underneath.
From there, the flavor is a natural development. The first impression is a sweet, minty note that leads into a truly delicious experience. There are hints of fruity, floral flavors that develop into a buzzy, enticing aftertaste that will keep you coming back.
Uses for Gelato
Gelato is a perfect strain for stress relief, chronic pain, and even depression. The uplifting, euphoric buzz can combat all sorts of unpleasant symptoms, while the intense THC content is perfect for battling stubborn problems.
Insomnia and nausea are no match for Gelato. Even the worst insomniacs will find themselves dozing off after dealing with their intense munchies.
