Understanding The Gellati Strain Phenomena 

Gellati Strain

If the Gellati strain is on your search list, then you need to stop and read this article. I have included all the details that you might need to make an informed choice. Therefore, take your time and go through this article to maximize your high.  

Overview Of The Gellati Strain

Cookies Farm has gradually established itself as one of the most sought-after cannabis growhouses. The grow house has given some iconic strains like Cherry Pie, Girl Scout Cookies, F1 Durban Poison, Gary Payton, etc. And today, I will be ‘reviewing’ the newest batch of cannabis from the grow house, the Gellati strain. 

I had no idea what to expect. So, I was practically flying blind. However, the experience was nothing that I could have prepared myself for. In fact, the effects of the strain really opened my eyes to the wizardry that the boys and girls at Cookies Farm are doing.  

As per my initial research, the Gelatti strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid strain. The general THC value of this strain oscillates between 20% THC and 23% THC. However, some third-party cultivars even managed to push the envelope with 30% THC. Therefore, it is not a strain for light-headed cannabis users.  

Genetic Mapping Of The Gellati Strain

Genetic Mapping Of The Gellati Strain

I believe that the first step towards understanding a strain is all about understanding its genetic makeup. This might seem redundant, but I like my reviews to be thorough and informative. Secondly, understanding the genetic makeup will also help you to make sense of the strain’s lineage and the characteristics it demonstrates.  

The Gellati strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid strain with some unique characteristics. The strain is a cross between the iconic Gellato and the Biscotti strains. Hence, this creates a unique strain with its new identity. As a result, it is natural to look at the parent strains individually.  

Here is a detailed rundown of the parent strains of the Gellati strain.  


The first piece of the puzzle is called the Gelato strain. The gelato strain has been a parent strain to several established strains like Ice Cream Gelato, Black Cherry Gelato, etc. As a result, the Gelato strain is a highly revered strain.  

The Gelato Strain is a product of crossing Sunset Sherbet with the Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies. The strain is known to produce a beautiful high that is more akin to an indica high. Users claim that they feel more relaxed and stress-free after consuming this strain.  

The Gelato strain boasts around 21% THC. Therefore, it is a very potent strain that must be approached with caution.  


The next piece of the puzzle is the iconic Biscootti strain. Biscotti is known for its Indica-dominant nature and its unique flavor profile. I have consumed this strain, and let me tell you that pot connoisseurs with a sweet tooth would love this strain.  

The Biscotti strain is an Indica-dominant strain that shares its lineage with Gelato 25 and Sour Florida OG. The Biscotti strain is known to produce a strong cerebral high with a sense of sedation. This makes it a perfect strain to consume before bed.  

The Biscotti strain also boasts around 21% THC. Like Gelato, this strain should also be approached cautiously.  

Characteristics Of The Gellati Strain

Characteristics of The Gellati Strain

Every strain has some innate characteristics that set these strains apart from each other. Non-users might not understand these nuances, but I can sense that you are not a non-user. Therefore, it is my mortal duty to look at the characteristics of the Gellati strain, so you have an idea what to expect.  

I have taken my time and divided the characteristics of the strain into three umbrella categories to make things easy for you. These categories include Terpenes, Aroma/Flavor, and Appearance.   

Let us dive right in without further ado.  


The very first thing that you need to understand about the strain’s characteristics is the terpenes. Terpenes of a cannabis strain are very important. These are not cannabinoids, but they contribute to several factors like flavoring, aroma, effects, etc. Hence, this section will educate you on all the major terpenes that can be found in the Gelatti strain.  

  • Caryophyllene: This is the most common form of terpene found in this strain. This terpene has a spicy and pungent aroma and is known to work as a mood enhancer.  
  • Linalool: Linalool is a floral terpene that can be found in most flowers and flowery-smelling cannabis strains. It can help people feel relaxed and sedated.  
  • Ocimene: Ocimene is a very rare terpene. Only a handful of strains contain ocimene terpene. It has a very pungent odor. However, research shows that this strain can boost energy levels.   
  • Terpinolene: Terpinolene is another rarely found terpene. It does not have any specific aroma. However, it is a potent mood enhancer.  
  • Limonene: Limonene is primarily found in citrusy strains and fruits. This adds a lemony essence to the cannabis. Subsequently, it also works as a mood enhancer.  

Aroma & Flavor 

Gelatti is an exotic strain. The aroma and the flavor profile of the strain add to the strain’s exotic identity. I prefer strains that are skunky and have the old-school skunk. Therefore, I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor and aroma profile of the strain.  

In my experience, this strain was one of the skunkiest strains I have come across. The Gellati strain produces a strong, gassy aroma profile. The aroma profile reminded me of my favorite Sour Diesel strain.  

The aroma and the flavor profile of the strain go hand in hand. However, I personally picked up some hints of sweetness. The initial smoke tastes skunky, but the essence changes into something sweet. This makes this strain a flavorful experience. However, overheating can drastically change the flavor profile into something sour and charred.  So, you will experience different flavor profiles in different formats of consumption.  


Most pot connoisseurs care very little about a strain’s appearance. I mean, I understand the feeling. However, I enjoy it when my pot looks good. It might not add something to my experience, but it certainly soothes my soul.  

The Gellati Strain effectively satiates this craving of mine. While the strain might not rival the likes of Acapulco Gold, Purple Kush, Member Berry, Crescendo, etc.  But it certainly has the looks. The general aesthetics of the strain can make it seem more exclusive than it originally is.  

The buds of the Gellati strain are densely packed and boast hues like greens, purple, and fiery orange. In fact, The whole strain is one big fiesta of colors. So, it will fulfill your urge to experiment with a pretty strain of cannabis.  

Effects & Usage Of The Gellati Strain 

Effects & Usage Of The Gellati Strain

Just as understanding the characteristics of a strain is important, it is also important to understand its effects and usages. Hence, this section will just focus on that aspect of the strain.  

But first, let me share what I felt while ‘reviewing’ the said strain. This will prepare you for the strain and what it might bring to the table. I prefer reviewing newer strains on the weekends. This allows me to keep a level head and experience the strain completely.  

The high of the Gellati strain comes in stages. The first stage is all about the cerebral high. You will feel a sense of relaxation washing over your faculties. You will feel your anxieties and stress melting away. It made my mind clearer and free of inhibitions.  

The second stage of the high is all about the body. Thirty minutes into the experience, I felt an intense urge to lie down. My head became heavier, and I felt an intense sense of body relaxation. From there, I mostly spent my time lazing around and playing my favorite game. At one point, I got really hungry and ate some food. 

The experience lasted for around 1.5 hours. During this period, I never felt that the strain went out of hand. The high was mostly controlled. However, the 21% THC can often become a little too much to handle for some people.

I think it would be criminal for me to ignore the recreational usage of the strain.  This is a perfect weekend strain. I mean, I can enjoy the strain while doing house chores on a Sunday.  

My partner and I decided to ‘review’ this strain together. It helped us relax and be in the moment. Both of us lead very busy lives, and I think that this strain can be on our itinerary as a means to de-stress.

Just as there are good aspects of the strain, there are certain negative aspects as well. My personal experience with the strain was mostly good. Howevevr, 20% THC is not a matter of joke. It is enough to make anybody go through severe bad trips. Here are some of the most common side effects of the Gellati strain: 

  • Paranoia 
  • Breathing issues 
  • Loss of identity

  • Loss of motor function

Growing Tips For The Gellati Strain 

Growing Tips For The Gellati Strain

Growing your own cannabis is one of those phases that every cannabis connoisseur has gone through. I personally loved the idea of growing my own cannabis plants from scratch. However, this is easier said than done.  

In this section, I will specifically talk about growing your own Gellati strain from the comfort of your home. According to veteran growers, this strain is known to produce beautiful results. In other words, veterans and novice growers will find this strain easy to work with.  

Still, you need to take special care of certain factors in order to produce optimal results. Here are three broad categories you need to deal with.  


The first step of growing your own cannabis strain is getting your own seeds. This stage of the growing process will be the most taxing part for you. The guys at the Cookies Fam believe in secrecy. As a result, you will not be able to get the original Gellatii Seed. However, there are plenty of clones available on the market. Then again, you need to take special care and not grow something that is sub-par in nature.  


The next thing that you need to understand is the general yield of the Gellati strain. You can expect a medium yield, If you do manage to get yourself some authentic seeds from the grow house. Researchers claim that the strain grows better in cold and dry conditions. Therefore, keep your growstation cool and free of humidity.  


The final aspect of growing this strain is about knowing the right flowering period. As per sources, the Gellati strain flowers around the 7th or the 9th week. During this period, you need to understand that the strain is vulnerable to pests and other elements. Hence, as a grower, you need to take special care of your plant in order to get a good yield.  

Closing Note

With that, you have reached the very end of my article reviewing the iconic and new Gellati strain from the Cookies Fam. While I personally enjoyed the strain as a recreational cannabis, many people claim that it is moderately difficult to grow due to the low availability of seeds. So, choose your purposes carefully.
