Gelato 48 offers a complex scent and flavor profile. A fragrant mix of blueberry and citrus aroma with an earthy hint exudes from a properly cured Gelato 48 bud.

The high from smoking this strain kicks in fast and strongly. Users must go easy on this potent strain as it can come off as overwhelming especially when consumed in large amounts. Users’ sensory perceptions get amplified, making the surroundings seem more vibrant and interesting. The cerebral effects of the high induce focus and creativity.

Negative Effects You Can Expect from Gelato 48

How to Grow Gelato 48
Growing Gelato 48 seeds is recommended if one wants to secure his own dose of the strain since this weed is not commonly sold. With its indica physical attributes at an advantage, this strain is suitable for indoor cultivation, although it also thrives in sunny outdoor environments. Expert growers suggest that the Gelato 48 seedling must be planted in a large container to avoid the hassles of transplanting it later. This will prevent the adverse effects of “transplant shock” since the Gelato 48 strain is quite sensitive.
Growers must also maintain the conditions in the grow room since this strain’s dense buds are sensitive to high humidity. For most of its flowering period, an RH level of 40% to 50% must be maintained. This is only allowed to drop to 30% to 40% a week or two before the cycle ends. The temperature, on the other hand, must be maintained between 20°C to 26°C. With optimal conditions, growers can expect to harvest yields of 500 to 700 grams per plant.
