Gelato Cake is the savory child of well-known Gelato #33 and Wedding Cake. This Indica-dominant hybrid with a ratio of 60/40. The crowd loves this cannabis for adorable aromatic lineage and wonderful relaxing effects.

Gelato Cake Strain Smell and Aroma

The parenting genetics made the fragrance of Gelato Cake unique and delicious. Reviewers who tried this cannabis mention the fantastic combination of creamy vanilla, sour berries and gas. Due to limonene and caryophyllene terpenes, the smoke is spicy and reminds of sour citrus on the exhale. Some also noted the notes on pine in the aftertaste because of pinene terpene present in the strain’s content.

Most users might use Gelato Cake weed because the potency it offers is moderate. The THC levels range from 14% - 18% THC, so it is a great choice for seasoned users, and some brave beginners could take it as an adventure. Due to strain balance, this marijuana produces sedative effects, making it perfect for night time use.

Gelato Cake Weed Strain Main Effects

The high delivered by Gelato Cake strain kicks in with a boost in focus and mental energy, keeping the body relaxed. Users described the ability to be productive and even creative, but that didn’t last long. The happy euphoria takes consumers to full and creepy relaxation. The tensed body gets its relief along with pain control. According to the users’ reviews, Gelato Cake marijuana is useful in treating depression, stress, anxiety and paranoia. The other reason to apply this weed for medical purposes is insomnia. The strain provides couch-locking sedation that offers users a night of fulfilling relaxing sleep without pain or worries.

Finding Gelato Cake seeds at the online or offline stores takes quite an effort. Those breeders who managed to get the growing material need to wait for about 8-9 weeks before the plants get ready to thrive.
