Origin and Genetics

Gelati (also known as Gelatti) is the result of the combination of Gelato and Biscotti, presenting a predominantly indica phenotype (70% indica / 30% sativa). On the other hand, Gelato, a hybrid of Sunset Sherbet and GSC Thin Mint Cookies, offers a more balanced mix of sativa and indica. Behind all these strains is the Cookie Fam, and the central genetic pillar that supports them all is undoubtedly the Girl Scout Cookies variety.

Cultivation and Harvest

In terms of cultivation, Gelati and Gelato show significant differences. Gelati is harvested in early October in the Northern Hemisphere and early April in the Southern Hemisphere, while Gelato is harvested a bit later, in mid to late October in the Northern Hemisphere and from April 15th in the Southern Hemisphere. Gelato, known for its greater height, can reach between 200 and 300 cm outdoors, compared to Gelati, which is usually somewhat shorter. When talking about growing these plants, it’s important to consider various factors, such as how long they take to grow, how much they produce, and how easy or difficult they may be to care for.

Gelati: This variety, being a cross between Gelato and Biscotti, has a flowering period (the time it takes to be ready for harvest since it starts flowering) of 8 to 9 weeks. This is relatively fast in the world of cannabis, especially considering its sativa load. Its production is not the highest, with around 450 grams per square meter indoors and about 500 grams per plant outdoors.

Gelato: On the other hand, Gelato, being a cross between Sunset Sherbet and Girl Scout Cookies, needs a little more time to flower, about 10 to 11 weeks. However, it produces more, with up to 500 grams per square meter indoors and 900 grams per plant outdoors. Additionally, it tends to grow taller, especially outdoors.

Which is Better for Novices?

If you’re new to cannabis cultivation, you might think that Gelati is a better option due to its shorter flowering cycle. This means you’ll be able to see the results of your work more quickly, which is rewarding and less daunting for a beginner. Additionally, being a plant that doesn’t grow as tall, it’s more manageable in smaller spaces, which is ideal if you plan to grow indoors or have limited space. On the other hand, Gelato, although it offers a higher yield, requires a bit more patience and space, which could be a challenge if you’re just starting out. Its height and longer flowering time may require more attention and care.

Effects and Medicinal Use

Both varieties are known for their potent psychoactive effects. Gelati stands out for offering a sense of euphoria and a potent effect, ideal for relieving pain and inflammation. Gelato, with 25% THC, is known for its ability to alleviate symptoms of anxiety, stress, and pain, offering a balance between physical relaxation and mental agility.


Flavor and Aroma

The flavor and aroma profile of both strains is complex and rich, and it is very difficult to consider which one might be better, as it is a very subjective matter. Gelati offers notes of cookies and vanilla sweetness, while Gelato is characterized by an aroma that combines cookies, mint, and gas. It could be said that in general, Gelato’s flavor is better valued, but of course, it is much more famous, and there are many people who have not yet tried Gelati. On the other hand, the flavor of Gelati is heavily influenced by that of Gelato, since one descends directly from the other.




Both Gelati and Gelato offer unique and satisfying experiences for cannabis enthusiasts. The choice between them will depend on individual preferences in terms of effects, flavor, and cultivation considerations. While Gelati is ideal for those looking for a balanced effect and a shorter cultivation cycle, Gelato is perfect for those who prefer a higher yield and a deeply relaxing effect. Both strains, with their distinctive characteristics, are a clear demonstration of the diversity and richness that the world of cannabis has to offer.
