How to Grow Gelato Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings

Growing weed from Gelato cannabis seeds or from cuttings is said to be difficult.  The makers, Cookie Fam Genetics still has a monopoly on production of this gourmet brand.  Seeds are not commonly sold, but it may be possible to clone this strain.  Indoors, some suggest using a grow tent.  Outdoors, a humid, warm climate is hypothesized to be the best for this strain.  You can expect high yields, extrapolating from the high yielding nature of the parent plants.

Medicinal Marijuana Review

Gelato tends to have high THC levels.  Its strong point is in the treatment of chronic stress.  Gelato was created as a bit of a gourmet mix of especially delicious varieties of weed.  It also has balanced stimulation and relaxation.  That makes it a perfect mix to wind down after a long day, with a heavy dose of THC, but without being put out of commission.  If you need to relax yet keep your wits about you, this is the weed for your issues.

Gelato bud’s ability to bring on light cerebral effects with stimulation at the same time as bodily relaxation make it a good choice for mood disorders such as anxiety and depression.  Gelato will give you a punch of cerebral energy that will help loosen the grips of depression.  This stimulation will also help with disorders of attention such as ADHD and ADD.  The Indica component will relax the body to quell hyperactivity, while the Sativa will provide the stimulation needed to maintain focus.

Gelato cannabis works well for nausea due to its alluring flavor.  Even the smell itself is inviting and makes the throat feel open and relaxed.  Then the inhale will quickly fill the mind with a cerebral rush and all nausea will be forgotten.  The relief will last for many hours.

Gelato pot can also increase appetite.  In conditions that produce nausea, such as chemotherapy for cancer or autoimmune disease, there is also a decrease in appetite.  This can cause the body to waste away.  Conditions like HIV can also cause wasting.  Gelato weed can treat wasting by stimulating the appetite allowing the patient to eat more and keep down what they have eaten.

Gelato weed, with it’s balanced stimulation and relaxation, is also a good choice for insomnia.

Gelato weed is a strong relaxant.  Used recreationally, it is best to use to wind down after a long day.  Be ready to fall asleep, so set up a lazy environment, post up on the couch in front of movies with loved ones whom you trust, because you may be out for a while.

Gelato weed has a slight psychedelic effect.  You may get some closed-eye visuals.  You may experience some distortion of perception including sights and sounds.  Be ready to slip into a dreamland where pleasurable sensations and euphoria greet you.

You will want to have a snack ready as you may have an improvement in appetite called the munchies.  You may feel all touchy-feely so this is a good strain to use with a romantic partners.  You may get the giggles but of a lazy kind, so this is one of the strains that can be good to use with intimate and close company, but not out with strangers.  Enjoy with friends and relatives and be ready to slip off into dreamland.

My first experience with Gelato was not disappointing. My head felt light, my body felt relaxed, and I was really enjoying that incredible taste of a hazelnut with pine. I’ve smoked a lot of weed due to my medical condition but this one is definitely the perfect hybrid for me. It even prompted me to write the first gelato review, which is also my very first online review. Wish I had more of this strain in my area.

by Matthew on Gelato Marijuana Strain

Gelato made me think about my life a lot (but maybe it’s just me). Frankly speaking, my goal was to get rid of that lower back pain I had after cutting grass in my backyard, and this strain did that. Also, it helped me to relax and enjoy the evening. Generally, I drink a glass of wine and watch a great movie to relax, but now Gelato weed is definitely a good alternative that allows me to fall asleep peacefully.

by Jason on Gelato Marijuana Strain

I liked that this weed is relaxing but won’t lock you on your couch. I prefer to be able to move when I smoke pot, so this one is great for me. As for the medical effects, I can say that the assistant at the dispensary was right: it does a great job at battling symptoms of mental health conditions, such as anxiety. Moreover, it tastes fruity and sweet, which I also enjoy.

by Kevin on Gelato Marijuana Strain

To be completely honest, I chose to try Gelato strain because the buds looked very cool. Thankfully, it didn’t disappoint me at all because I had a perfect high after just two hits (and I have a high tolerance). The high was great and long-lasting, so don’t plan anything important to do after smoking. Even though this pot won’t increase your productivity level like a sativa (but I should probably say that it comes pretty close), but it’s very calming and euphoric.

by Anthony on Gelato Marijuana Strain

Can I give it ten stars?? Absolutely fantastic high that improved my focus and helped me with depression. I tend to be a little bit anxious all the time, so I was looking for a pot with great relaxation and mood improvement effects. My friend who is kind of an expert on marijuana said: “if you want a delicious hybrid, buy Gelato strain.” He was right, it’s the tastiest marijuana you can possibly find out there, and you can grow it in just 8 weeks.

by Ronald on Gelato Marijuana Strain

When I first tried this stuff, I was amazed. It reminded me a bit of OG Kush a little bit because it packed a sudden and a strong punch within a minute. Also, I liked that the relaxing effects did not dramatically limit my energy because I’m a big fan of painting, or otherwise creating while stoned. I can confidently say Gelato cannabis is a good all-rounder that will relax you, take your mind off bad things, and inspire to do something fun.
