About Lemon Cherry Gelato Strain

The Lemon Cherry Gelato strain is a hybrid created by crossing two iconic strains — Sunset Sherbet and Girl Scout Cookies with another unknown strain.

Sunset Sherbet is an indica-dominant hybrid strain that is relatively mild in terms of strength but offers an amazing flavor profile and an array of potential therapeutic benefits.

Girl Scout Cookies is also an indica-dominant hybrid strain made by crossing two absolute classics — Durban Poison and OG Kush. It offers a sweet and fruity flavor profile and a variety of therapeutic benefits.

Who Made Lemon Cherry Gelato Strain?

Sources differ on who the originator of the Lemon Cherry Gelato strain was. Many claim that it was Backpack Boyz out of California, and others claim it was Midwest Best out of Michigan.

Is Lemon Cherry Gelato Strain Indica or Sativa?

Lemon Cherry Gelato is an indica-dominant hybrid, which means you’ll get more of a relaxing and sedative effect than an uplifting and energetic one. However, the balance between indica and sativa is estimated to be about 60% to 40%, so there are plenty of sativa traits in this strain as well.

Is Lemon Cherry Gelato Potent?

Lemon Cherry Gelato is considered to be a strong strain, and at its strongest, it can be highly potent. The range of THC content is somewhere between 20% and 25%. CBD content is low with this strain, averaging about 1%.

Appearance, Aroma, and Taste Profile

Here are some useful details regarding the more distinguishing features of the Lemon Cherry Gelato strain.

The buds of the Lemon Cherry Gelato strain are absolutely beautiful, alternating between vibrant greens and deep purples and interwoven with auburn pistils. They’re coated in a healthy frosting of trichome crystals that let you know just how much of a kick they have to offer.

Lemon Cherry Gelato’s Aroma and Taste Profile

Take a whiff of one of these beautiful buds, and you’ll get hit with an array of fruity aromas like berry, lemon, and lime. Pack some up and take a hit to enjoy some smooth and sweet smoke that’s got a fruity, citrusy dessert flavor to it. 

The prominent terpene in this strain is caryophyllene, which can be found in black pepper, oregano, hops, rosemary, lavender, cloves, and more. Other notable terpenes include limonene and humulene.
