Cookie Fam Genetics created this best-selling phenotype of Gelato 45, also known as Larry Bird, as a hybrid between Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mints. It leans towards the earthier notes for sure — imagine the taste of pine cookies and flowers. The strain is delicious and powerful, with a solid THC level and a sweet cocktail of vibrant tastes. The potent pain-relieving effects are not only a bonus, but they also pack a ton of benefits for people with unique health conditions who are searching for relief.
Gelato, in any phenotype, is a dankly delicious strain. It’s sweet to an almost sickly degree, mood-boosting, and incredibly earthy. Those who use it are known for succumbing to energy, euphoria, and bouts of uncontrollable giggles. This gives the strain its uniquely specific effects for people suffering from a myriad of pain conditions.
As with many strains, Gelato 45 helps with depression and stress. Due to its relaxing effect, it can treat insomnia and fatigue. It gives you the munchies, which can help dispel a chronically low appetite or feelings of nausea. It’s so happy-inducing and focused that it can even help chase away a brain fog and cure a headache.
However, for people suffering with real chronic conditions, Gelato 45 can be a soothing presence. Fibromyalgia, marked by widespread bodily pain in specific points on the body, can be near-impossible to effectively treat without constant management. Any relief is welcome, which is why Gelato 45 is a superstar among buds for being able to offer those people some relief. This is because the strain can reduce inflammation and muscle spasms, both of which are causes and symptoms of fibro. It’s basically a closed system of cause and effect – inflammation causes fibro, which causes stress, which causes inflammation, which causes fibro. Gelato 45 can help break the cycle.
Additionally, the strain can help treat chronic stress and traumatic stress related to PTSD. Bipolar disorder (or manic depression) can also be calmed down under the influence of Gelato 45.
The strain itself is dark green and blue, almost a deep purple shade among its lumpy nugs, with orange hairs and a dusting of incredibly sticky, resin-cloaked trichomes. Its high is a sense of euphoria and focus mixed together, balanced and powerful and long-lasting. You will feel relaxed and peaceful on the strain, relieved, and potentially pain-free.
For those that can’t focus because of pain, or can’t function in their daily lives, they’re looking for anything to break the cycle. Gelato 45 could be the answer.
