And the Top Cannabis Strain of 2018 is...
Gelato. It’s an Italian-style ice cream known for its creamy texture and growing popularity among foodies and millennials in the United States. But it’s also the name of 2018’s cannabis strain of the year per Leafly.
Leafly sifted through its internal data to determine last year’s top marijuana variety. The site’s visitors spent nearly 435,000 hours looking at Gelato’s specs in November alone and it received more 5-star reviews than any other strain on the website.
“Gelato is a hybrid with an empire of its own, but it was built from the foundation of its parent strains: A cross between Sherbinski’s Sunset Sherbert and Cookie Fam’s Thin Mint GSC, it continues to ride the wave of its potent, compelling, and hyped lineage,” Leafly notes.
“Like both of its parent strains, Gelato is appreciated for its potent suite of effects. It’s a forceful experience of blissful euphoria and physical relaxation that can be quite the ride. I enjoy the Gelato experience because it puts me in a good mood and doesn’t distract me from staying productive. It gives me just enough focus, but allows me a slightly different perspective if I’m working on something creative or challenging.”
