Frosty Gelato is a sativa dominant hybrid (65% sativa/35% indica) created through crossing the infamous Sherbinski Gelato X Brain Damage strains. The result is a gorgeous cannabis plant with oversized spade-shaped nuggets that are dark olive green with purple undertones and fiery reddish orange hairs. The buds are surrounded by a frosty thick coating of dark purple-tinted white crystal trichomes that give this strain its name.
Upon consumption, this strain offers an intoxicating high that is a perfect blend of sativa and indica effects. Users experience a rush of euphoria and uplifted mood that is balanced by a deep sense of relaxation that spreads across the body. This energizing and productive high can help elevate creativity, focus, and sociability. In addition, this strain can provide stress and pain relief, and it has been known to stimulate appetite.
Gelato’s genetics lend this cannabis strain a fruity and dessert-like flavor that is often described as a rich fruit punch. The aromas of this strain are reminiscent of its parent, Brain Damage, which has bakesale-esque flavors and a pungent skunky scent that is produced as the offspring of a variety of landrace strains. Frosty Gelato also has a refreshing herbaceous flavor that can have citrus notes on the exhale and a cakey finish.
For growers, this strain is a good choice for a SCROG setup. This cultivation technique helps the plants to stretch and flower evenly. It can also improve air flow in the growing area and increase the number of bud sites. This cannabis strain is a good choice for medicinal users looking to alleviate stress, depression, and mild anxiety. It can also stimulate the appetite and alleviate symptoms of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.
