Strain of the Week: Gelato 41




In the world of frozen treats, few come close to the creamy delicious texture and flavor of Italian ice cream, also known as gelato. Forget frozen yogurt, sorbet or store-bought Häagen-Dazs. Gelato is an elevated form of frozen delight, and the pleasure you get from eating it is near unmatchable. Although we’re talking about ice cream, Gelato #41 is actually more closely related to cookies; Girl Scout Cookies strains, that is. But despite the many representations of desserts that are invoked by this strain, one thing is for sure—you’re going to love it.

Gelato #41 doesn’t have the most well-documented genetic trail. In fact, the one thing that CULTURE reviewers were certain of is the strain’s relation to a variety of different Cookies variants. But it is most likely that the original Girl Scout Cookies strain contributed to the existence of Gelato #41.

Gelato #41 is a heavy and dense, and is also described as “hyper-resinous” with all of the many trichomes it has covering its exterior. If you look closely enough, you’ll also find faintly colored purple and orange pistils jutting out from within. Unsurprisingly, when this strain is ground up, some report smelling the scent of berry sherbet dessert, along with a traditional fuel aroma.

Gelato #41 is known for its potency. So when you’re smoking this little purple beauty, you’re in it for the long haul. This indica-dominant sample brought on strong feelings of euphoria and relaxation, but not enough to knock them out instantly. Instead, there is a small amount of energy created from this strain, which allows consumers to still conduct their daily business over the weekend, followed by a well-deserved nap. Those who might suffer from nausea, stress or chronic pain find that this strain is extremely helpful because it begins to work almost instantly. It isn’t recommended for new patients, but those who have built up a tolerance will be able to experience many benefits with this unique strain.
