About Platinum Gelato
In House Genetics bred Platinum Gelato from a mix of some serious favorites – Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. With GSC in the mix, you’d be right to expect dank deliciousness from Platinum Gelato, with a hit of sweet dessert flavors and other spices. The relaxing well-being that you’ll feel on this strain is why it’s become a new favorite, even if it will never totally overshadow its ultra-famous parents. But with 28% THC on the high end, it’s giving them a run for their money!
This strain is slightly Indica-dominant (55/45), but users note that the effects are more typical of Sativa strains. These include a head-heavy onset to its high that provides buzzing clarity and euphoria, without making you feel sedated or locked to your couch. The happiness brought on by this strain is great for focusing on creative tasks and getting motivated, such as working on art or other hobbies like knitting, reading a great book, watching a film, or otherwise relaxing at home. Yoga nuts love this strain because of how its balanced, clarity-inducing effects lead to focused energy, while some other strains can knock you out cold.
As you enjoy the slow-building buzz of Platinum Gelato, you may notice how the strain loosens muscle spasms and wakes you up from feelings of fatigue. Migraines and headaches seem less strong on the strain too. This is why all kinds of brain fog, including the kind brought on by stress, seem to dissipate on Platinum Gelato. It’s sort of like breathable meditation. The buds may be dense and lumpy like dark green grapes, but they have the rejuvenating effects of dainty flowers. They also have a deep purple center, a coat of sticky resin, and bright orange wisps of pistils.
The strain’s flavor is a clever middle-ground between its Sherbet and GSC heritage. This means you can expect a lot of sweetness on the inhale, with flavors of sweet orange and blueberry. But as you smoke, especially on the exhales, the sweetness yields just a bit to a flavor of lavender and a taste of woody herbs. The aroma is super sweet, like a cloud of citrus candy. You’ll have sherbet breath, like breathing out gaseous cake.
Few side effects are reported by users of Platinum Gelato and the yields are reported as being very high. However, the not-so-good news for novice cultivators is that Platinum Gelato is a picky strain that requires a lot of attention and care to get those high yields. Unless you have an indoor growing area and a lot of cultivation experience, you might want to try an easier strain. But if you’re a user ready for focused energy and powerfully sweet flavors, Platinum Gelato makes a compelling argument.
