Gelato / Gelato 33 / Larry Bird Cannabis Strain Info

If you have spent any real time reading into Cannabis strains then you will have come across Gelato – also known as Larry Bird. The strain is one of the heavy weights from Northern Calafornia and is named after the famous basket-ball player Larry Bird (his number was 33 which is why this strain is also referred to as Gelato 33)

The strain comes from the indica Sunset Sherbert and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. Much like Sunset Sherbert, Gelato has the classic fruitiness of the Californian Bay Area and is well known of the ‘Cookie Family’. To give reference the herbal, fruity pepperyness has been associated with an IPA beer. The strain is known as a Dessert strain which is sweet and perfect for after dinner or in the early evening. The smoke is soft, creamy and smooth. 

Much like the flavour, the Gelato Cannabis strain is easily identified for its vibrant colours. The dark green buds are lightly frosted with a layer of THC crystals which reveals the purple hues and orange hairs. 

Although there are strains with higher THC contents, Gelato should be taken with caution as the THC gets to work quickly and is particularly strong. It has a very strong heady feeling which may feel uncomfortable to some users. 

Side Effects

The strains have high levels of THC (between 18% – 25%) and very low levels of CBD which means that this strain is particularly potent. You should be aware that there are potential negitive side effects which come with high THC strains- the list of noted effects are as below: 

  • Dry eyes
  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Paranoid
  • Anxiety
