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.
While Frosty Gelato offers a ton of sweet and bakesale-esque flavors, it gets its scent profile from its Brain Damage parent. As the offspring of a bunch of landrace strains, she takes on an extremely pungent skunky aroma. During the grow cycle, she has the power to overpower a room with a deep, dank earthy sourness. The skunk aroma is delicious. However, when the flowers are dried and broken open, some of those herbal and citrusy fruit notes make an appearance. Frosty Gelato has been compared to a deep, dank, fruit punch.
As a Gelato offspring, Frosty Gelato takes on a sweet and cakey flavor. While dank earth and skunk are the most prevalent scents, the taste is more like the Gelato parent. It has a refreshing herbaceous flavor that takes on a bright fruity zest on the aftertaste. On the inhale, you’re hit with a mouth-watering fruit blast that can be reminiscent of a sweet fruit punch. It’s overall quite sweet and refreshing with notes of smokey pepper and herbs in the smoke. The aftertaste is very fruity and dessert-like, leaving a pleasant mix between rich dankness and citrus fruits on the tongue after the exhale.
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.
