Gelato is both a popular strain and a popular flavor to put into THC vape carts. We see it come up all the time in the vaping scene. The alternative name for this strain is “Larry Bird,” a sports joke.

Gelato is a “dessert” hybrid

One of the most widely sought cannabis strains, Gelato was one of the first to start the trend of sweet-tasting dessert cannabis. Its flavor is described as sherbet, with a mix of fruity notes. It is flavored by a terpene profile high in caryophyllene and limonene. A true hybrid, its sensation is relaxing, soothing, and euphoric. Since it is quite potent, newbie users are advised to go easy, because Gelato packs a wallop.

Gelato descends from San Francisco Bay area Cookies breeds

Originally Gelato was produced from crossing the strains Thin Mint GSC and Sherbet, at the cultivation facility operating under Sherbinski founder Mario Guzman at Cookie Fam Genetics. The bud is small, but as colorful as it tastes, with a purple texture and distinctive orange trichomes.



Gelato today is hardly distinguishable as a strain stand-alone, because it’s been cross-bred into strains such as “Lemon Gelato,” “Pineapple Gelato,” and “Green Gelato.” It’s become a family of strains, related to several Girl Scout Cookies blends and other dessert-themed strains.
