Gelato cannabis strain effects are quick acting and they can pack a punch! Some claim that even before the first exhale is done, a strong head buzz already touches the users.

This paves the way for a euphoric high that users will cherish as it brings out the ultimate joy. Their moods are all uplifted as they will start to manifest an aura of positivity that comes from deep within. As soon as the euphoria starts to settle in, the energy in the user’s minds sends signals of varying ideas and images ushering a delirious high where images and sounds will seem distorted and reverberating! The calming effect of the warm wave of relaxation will bring tranquility to the user’s mind and stabilize it so they won’t feel paranoid due to the hallucinations they are experiencing. This tranquility only slows down the energy-induced cerebral stimulation but the user is alert and still mobile at this point. Generally, this is a great weed to use in the late afternoon when nothing else is planned as the long-lasting effects of this weed will have you enjoying that distorted high while feeling calm.
Sweet as it may seem, the pungency of this weed will spread around a room as fast as it could once a bag is opened. The aroma can be overpowering that it is recommended to have the proper ventilating equipment working as soon as the plant starts flowering, otherwise, it can be nauseating at times to be inside a grow room full of flowering Gelato 48 plants! Cultivating them outdoors is not recommended as its scent can be carried for miles and may invite some of the authorities. This weed smells of damp earth with a strong presence of fruity goodness. As the bud is lit, the taste of citrus and sweet notes will be more evident that blends beautifully with the pungent earthy flavor. As the smoke is exhaled, a hint of blueberry flavor will come as an aftertaste.

Though this strain may have very intense effects there have been no documented reports on serious adverse effects from this weed. But it would be wise to take it slow as some users may not fare well with the trippy mind-bending effects. Dehydration is a common problem for all cannabis users and this usually leads to experiencing cottonmouth. This can be alleviated by drinking lots of hydrating liquids to lessen the effects of dehydration.

This weed is quite rare and it would be very difficult to find seeds in any dispensaries. One can try ordering the seeds at any grow shop or head shop as they usually have direct contact with reputable seed banks and could order them for you. If you are in a hurry to grow this, the fastest way is to obtain clippings from a healthy growing Gelato 48 plant so clones can be made.

They can be grown indoors or outdoors, but it is highly recommended to have them growing indoors where climate conditions can be monitored and adjusted accordingly. These plants need to be exposed to much cooler nighttime temperatures to induce the purple hues of the plant and increase its potency and flavor. These plants will be ready to flower and harvestable in 8 to 9 weeks and yield a generous above-average harvest!
