Gelato CBD: Strain Review

Genetic lineage of Gelato CBD

The Gelato CBD strain is a particularly aromatic and flavorful strain that imparts noticeable effects almost immediately after smoking it.

It is a hybrid strain of hemp flower with about 75:25 indica to sativa effects with myrcene and caryophyllene dominating the terpene profile.

The Gelato strain is a cross between Sunset Sherbert and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies hemp strains, from West coast breeders, Cookie Fam and Sherbinski, which has been crossed again with an unknown CBD chemovar.

Gelato CBD Flower Strain Review

As always, before you buy Gelato CBD flower, you should verify that your chosen CBD flower vendor can produce a third-party lab report that verifies the Delta-9 THC percentage is below or equal to .3%. Anything above that amount is considered a cannabis strain and not a hemp strain..

Please note that the Delta-9 THC is different from the total THC content. Total may be slightly higher than 0.3% since it also includes Delta-8 THC and Delta-10 THC.


As mentioned above, Gelato is a hybrid strain with indica dominant traits, meaning it’s great for relaxing and calming your mind and body, but it also has a nice uplifting effect that has a tendency to put a smile on my face, just like eating a bowl of ice cream would.

The CBD content is usually around 15%, but don’t let that fool you as this strain is commonly associated with couch-lock in the cannabis world due to its unusual ability to immobilize your limbs. And these sedative effects can certainly be observed in the CBD Gelato strain too.

This makes this strain ideal for those looking for pain-relief and I love smoking it after a long day at work as it really helps you wind down and de-stress from the day’s events.

Also, if you combine Gelato CBD flower with your favorite nighttime strain of high-THC flower, you’ll have one of the best night’s sleep you could ever dream of.

Flavor Profile

Gelato has a potent terpene profile with an excellent taste, making it an absolute joy for the senses when you smoke it. Perfect for the CBD flower connoisseurs among you. As you can probably guess, it has a deliciously sweet, creamy, ice-cream flavor. If it’s been cured properly, then it smokes really smoothly and on the backend you can sometimes pick up a faint flowery and fruity essence.

Dominant terpenes:

  • Myrcene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Terpinolene
  • Humulene

In order to experience the best flavors from your CBD flower, I recommend that you vaporize it through a dry herb vaporizer. A dry herb vape will heat the CBD flower up to the perfect temperature to release the terpenes and the flavor is also not tainted from the taste of the paper, like it would be in a joint or pre roll.

When you stick your nose into a bag of Gelato, the complexities of the strains’ terpene profile really shines. You’ll smell the sweetness of berries and citrus, reminiscent of sherbet, but you may also detect an earthy, grassy, almost woody aroma.

Gelato is one of those strains that will turn heads when the jar or bag is opened for the first time. Everyone’s going to want to stick their nose right in there.


Gelato’s average bud size isn’t anything to write home about. In fact, if anything, they’re slightly on the smaller side, but they’re dense, frosty as hell, and stunning.

The buds have a vibrancy about them with varying shades of green, purple, and bright orange pistons poking through to the surface.

The flavor profile of this strain is so popular that you’ll also find a lot of CBD vapes and carts that are flavored with Gelato terpenes. If you want a disposable vape pen, ready to go, then I love the CBDfx Gelato CBD terpenes vape pen. Or if you have a battery and are looking for a disposable cart, then try Secret Nature’s Gelato vape carts.

Best vendors of Gelato

Arete Hemp have run out of their Gelato flower, which is a crying shame, but you can still pick up their Gelato keif and live resin concentrate. The keif is super potent (high THCA also) that you can infuse your joints and bowls with, make your own CBD oil or cook with. Or their live resin concentrate makes for super tasty dabbing.

If you are after the Gelato Hemp Flower, then you might get lucky over at, if they haven’t sold out already. Their Gelato CBD flower is infused with terpenes and CBG oil to increase its overall CBG content.

Gelato CBD + CBG from offers really nice and flavorsome smoking experience and excellent effects. The CBG infusion gives it a slightly more uplifting effect than the classic Gelato strain and the full-spectrum entourage effect is wonderful.
