In its intact state, these buds gave off lots of fruit and sweetness with a distinct aroma of orange sherbet. Once ground, the GSC’s OG Kush lemon was mixed with light orange-candy. When smoked, this gelato tasted of orange sherbet, berry and mild candy notes with pine and earth as the backdrop.
Effects: The journey starts in the mind but is soon joined by the body in tandem euphoria. While the high does favor the cerebral, the body is not ignored. Gelato is at once refreshing and relaxing. The ride can get a little spacey at high doses, though the less experienced should be fine as long as they take it slow.
Duration of Effects: 2+ hours
May Help With: Helped with stress and mild cervical nerve pain. May also help with depression, PTSD, some forms of muscle spasms, some forms of body pain, appetite, headaches (and more)
If you want to experience cannabis flower that nails every single medical-grade marker, this is it.
