About Lemon Cherry Gelato

History & Genetics

Lemon Cherry Gelato, another showstopper from Backpackboyz, shares a lot of the blissfully sour, amazing fruity flavors of its parents and its phenotype relatives. From its mom and dad, Sunset Sherbet and Girl Scout Cookies, the strain acquires an amazing overtone of fresh aromas.

We also think there’s an undisclosed lemon phenotype in there somewhere, based on lab reports. Backpackboyz has been working with 5pointsLA for a while now coming up with these cherry variants, which are in pretty high demand due to their ambitious THC levels.

Typical Effects


Common Usage


Appearance, Aroma & Flavor

This exotic-looking strain is temptingly delicious. Its dark, moss-green color is hidden beneath a thicket of sweet trichomes colored like caramel, as well as rusty-looking hairs. The buds grow dense, rugged, and tiny, with solid nuggets of trichomes. Uniquely, Lemon Cherry Gelato has practically no leaves.

THC Content











The strain has a diverse and pleasant aroma, which is overwhelmingly citrusy but with undertones of earthy, gassy, and fruity scents, including cherry. It also has a cookie smell. The terpene profile adds in a big dose of pine and sour berries. These all translate to an amazing taste as it leads into the classic stony high.

You’ll feel relaxed all over, immediately. A negative mood is no match for a snack of Lemon Cherry, as racing thoughts calm to reveal a sense of peace. With THC nearly 30% on the high end, Lemon Cherry Gelato also has properties of an analgesic (pain reliever), stress reliever, and antidepressant. Those who suffer from mood swings can also find soothing relief on Gelato strains.

A long workday can easily give way to the giggles on Lemon Cherry Gelato. It’s not uncommon to feel happy and cerebral, couch-locked and in a relaxing trance for hours on end. The strain is a breath of creamy cookies, a blast of high gassy goodness, and a deep citrus fruit profile, all cherry tropical and woody earth.


Lemon Cherry Gelato is a fairly easy strain to grow and is a great choice for beginners to start with. You can grow it both outdoors and indoors, but they prefer warmer, humid climates if you prefer real sunlight for your plants. Prepare for tall growing cannabis, up to 5-6.5 feet tall. Some growers claim that Lemon Cherry Gelato is more pest-resistant than other strains, but it is more susceptible to mold because of their dense bud structure.

If you want a relaxing night at home, you need a strain that promotes full-body relaxation with a deep but unchallenging flavor. The dessert palette and rich textures make this South Cali favorite a great import or local attraction, so long as you’re looking for delicious pain relief at the end of a long week.

πŸ‹πŸ’ Connoisseurs Delight πŸ’πŸ‹Finally, a strain worth the price Backpack πŸŽ’ BoyzπŸ‘¦ is asking! The buds in my eighth were darker green with purple highlights & golden pistils/trichomes containing 32.80% THC! The taste πŸ‘… is a fruity citrus 🍊. The cherries soften the lemon smell πŸ‘ƒ & taste πŸ‘… making for a much smoother experience then sour lemon πŸ‹. The Indica Leaning Hybrid made for a happy chill ride. 🚬 Enjoy The Pleasure Of The Smoke 🚬

Lemon cherry gelato is hands down one of my favorite strains. It always makes my happy when I'm feeling down and tends to calm me. I love how pretty and dark the buds usually are. It's usually slow-burning if it's in it's flower form. I recommend it to everyone and anyone.
