Gelato Strain by Verano

Gelato is widely recognized as one of Verano’s best strains, and this powerful cultivar is aptly named for its fruity, delectable dessert counterpart. This sweet and citrusy strain features a glow of orange hairs as well as a shimmering frost of crystalline trichomes and can leave users feeling both relaxed and euphoric.

More About the Gelato Strain

The Gelato strain is also sometimes called "Larry Bird" or "Gelato #42". It is a hybrid strain with a nice balance of indica and sativa, though due to its relaxing effects, some may consider it more indica leaning. Balance isn't all that this strain boasts, though - medical marijuana patients report that Gelato works great for pain, fatigue and insomnia.

Gelato is a stunner of a strain, providing sweet and fruity aromas with creamy flavors, exuded from dark purple bud with flashes of orange hairs and frosty white trichomes. Whether from looks, effects, or a combination of both, the strain is so beloved that many phenotypes of Gelato have been cultivated, including numbers 3, 33, 41 and 45.
