This strain is a cross between the Brain Damage landrace strain and the world-famous Gelato strain. It’s named after its exceptionally frosted appearance, though it still packs a powerful punch of potency, mouth-watering flavors, and an excellent mix of effects that make it a perfect strain for just about any time of day. Here’s everything you need to know about the Frosty Gelato strain.
Frosty Gelato is a 65/35 sativa-dominant hybrid. It was originally bred by Growers Choice seeds when they took the famous Sherbinski Gelato and crossed it with their cut of Brain Damage. Brain Damage is a mix of skunky landrace strains and unknown genetics that offer a good mix of effects, while Gelato is a 50/50 hybrid heir to the Girl Scout Cookies throne. Frosty Gelato first made its appearance at the Highlife Cup in 2018 where it took home 1st place in the skunk-strain category.
As a sativa-dominant hybrid, Frosty Gelato offers a great mix of mental effects and physical effects. You can expect to experience a notably focusing and energizing mental effect that promotes an uplifted and blissful euphoria that lasts for hours. On the other hand, it offers a few benefits to the physical body in the form of muscle relaxation, appetite stimulation, and a soothing effect on the mind. These mild indica effects help keep the sativa energy bright and uplifting without turning into anxiety or paranoia. All in all, the strain is a great daytime high that can keep you motivated and moving, or be used in the afternoon for stress relief and relaxation. Like almost all cannabis strains, Frosty Gelato does have a few side effects including cottonmouth and dry eyes. Novice users and people with a lower tolerance for THC may also experience anxiety when using this strain.
