A timeless classic, the Gelato weed strain is one of the most famous names in the cannabis community right now. A rare, perfectly balanced hybrid was created by crossing two insanely delicious strains, namely the Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and the Sunset Sherbert together. No wonder the strain is so delicious and enjoyable.
Gelato is also an incredibly potent strain and possesses an enjoyable high. In fact, it has been backcrossed numerous times, and today has a large number of children as well. In particular, one phenotype of the original Gelato weed strain is the Larry Bird, which has been named after the famous NBA player.
Gelato THC Content
Gelato is a slightly Indica dominant hybrid (55% Indica /45% sativa)
While there are many evenly balanced strains present in the market, few are as potent or famous as Gelato. The strain’s THC content is extremely high and rarely ever goes below the 20% to 25% range. No wonder the strain was used to breed so many potent and powerful strains.
At the same time, Gelato is another one of those strains which do not work well with beginners. The effects are just too heavy and strong, and can often be a bit too much for inexperienced users to handle.
Even though Gelato contains equal amounts of both Indica and Sativa content, the effects lean slightly towards the Indica side. The high begins quickly and hits the user with all that it’s got, sometimes even before they’ve had a chance to exhale. A head rush can be expected at the very beginning, distorting perceptions and throwing the user off guard. In fact, if you are not prepared for something like this, it may well cause paranoia and anxiety.
In addition to the psychedelic effects, Gelato also causes heavy, body-based effects, which are extremely relaxing and discourage activity. And even though the effects are not sedative, they can still cause a couch lock situation, forcing you to stay in one place and explore your newfound dimension in detail.
Medically, Gelato is a useful strain for treating conditions such as spasms, chronic pain, inflammation, fatigue, headaches or migraines, and even depression and PTSD.
Like most Indica based buds, Gelato’s buds are also quite dense but small-sized. However, what they lack in size they more than makeup for in glamour. A large number of bright, orange-colored pistils stand out against the deep, forest green-colored nugs. Sometimes, the leaves may even feature just a little bit of purple, which is a result of exposing the strain to below-freezing temperatures.
Though the buds are sticky, don’t be surprised if you don’t see a lot of trichomes on the surface. The trichomes are still there and can be found by breaking the nugs apart, which is not an easy task to perform.
Speaking of breaking the nugs apart, it is now time to talk about Gelato’s aroma. As the product of two extremely flavourful and delicious strains, Gelato inherits quite the terpene profile.
When cured properly, Gelato’s buds give off a strong, sour citrus-based scent, a compliment of the Sunset Sherbert strain. However, burning the nugs releases a doughy, yeasty note as well, which quickly turns delicious on the exhale, reminding the user of a certain brand of mint-based chocolate chip cookies.
Where to buy Gelato in Canada?
While Gelato is famous all over the world for a number of reasons, the strain is also one of the most difficult ones to grow and take care of. At the same time, Gelato’s seeds were never sold commercially to the public, and only a few dispensaries have the right to grow and distribute the strain.
As one of the oldest and largest dispensaries in business, Buy My Weed Online is well known to have the best quality standards in the market. All of our products are carefully curated and handled with the care they deserve. Simply go through some of our Gelato’s reviews and see why so many Canadians love BMWO.

From Canada Post
The investigation involves contacting the addressee to confirm delivery, or to better understand how they receive their mail and, as applicable, if they checked:
with the front desk, security or mail room at the receiving address to see if someone else accepted the item on their behalf;their Community Mail Box for the item or parcel compartment key; around their property to see if the item was left in a safe location or in a mailbox attached to their home.
In rare cases, a delivery scan is entered into our system before the item is delivered. If you become aware that the addressee has received the item before we contact you, simply reply to this e-mail indicating the item has been received.”
My package is going to the wrong destination
If you’re tracking your package on the Canada Post website and it looks like it’s headed to the wrong city, it’s most likely due to human error at Canada Post. Human errors happen on occasion as the postal employee has to manually enter each postal code in the system and if they are off by a digit/letter, it can cause a routing error and subsequent delay of 1-2 days.

We will email you your tracking number before its been scanned in at the post office. Until it has been scanned in, your tracking number will not be trackable on the Canada Post website.
