Description

Gelato has become a flagship for quality flavor since its creation in California, and our Gelato Auto is no different. A well-structured stable plant with distinct ice cream flavors, making it a great choice for extractions. And with lab reports boasting up to 26% THC, Gelato is without a doubt one of the most powerful strains we’ve ever created.

Bud Appearance

Frosty, orange pistil covered buds. Boasting a vibrant green color, with orangey golden frosty hairs, these buds will stick to your fingers with even just the lightest touch.

Smoke Report

An uplifting high, giggly and energetic. Great for creative minds looking to overcome writer’s block. If you’re new to smoking you may want to be careful, having a crazy 26% THC this strain will be very potent and can leave some couch-locked: smoke lightly, enjoy the creamy tastes and let the creativity flow within you.

Plant Appearance

A rich green plant, that’s crystal-covered leaves will sparkle under the sun or grow lights. A more Indica-like structure, quite stocky and with lots of compact buds. As it approaches the end of its cycle you’ll see it cover itself in orange pistils.

Grow Tips

As a more Indica structured plant, some light defoliation could be recommended to help growth in the lower sections of the plant. A carbon filter is highly recommended, as she’s one of our smellier strains. Growers should also look to harvest around week 9 once they start to see the pistils turn slightly amber/orange. Her abundance in resin makes her a great choice for making oils or extractions. The flushing process should start approximately 10 days before the end of the cycle.

Flavor

A blend of earthy overtones subdued by sweet cookie flavorings and zesty citrus touches makes the smoke sweet and smooth, hinting at undertones of Ice cream.

Trippy as actual lsd
This one tho,,, hoooly cream, this stuff will NOT let you sleep, smoked it sometimes by accident before sleeping and well, no sleeping was done those times, this B will legit keep you up, you cannot sleep on this, don't try it cuz u can't, its an energy powerhouse not only in your body as it leaves you too active and makes you HAVE TO MOVE cuz you just start felling your whole body numb and only way to stop it is by moving, you smoke too much and damn paranoia will make you think the plant took the last step needed to finally be damaging to humans, it will make you think you smoked laced bud, you know it ain't laced, but not after smoking you won't, cuz after you smoke this one u get proper fckd up, you try to controll it but you can't, till you finally go past the peak and feel like ur back in controll, at wich point ur just gonna smoke another one cuz the effect is addictive as FRIK, its like ur drinking 10 thc infused coffees and then some1 drops a bit of mdma on those coffees, ITS JUST TOO POWERFULL, for me. Defenitly not growing this again in the upcoming time as i can't handle this type of high for now, too strong for me, and i thought i could handle strong, but well, fk that, i'm not messing with this one, everyone i know who tried it either claimed they never been so high before in their life or that i laced it with something, nope, no thank you, you wanted to show me i can't handle a proper high intensity high, well... good job fastbuds, now i got a challange waiting for me in the future, cuz i'm coming back for this one, hell yeah i'm facing this exact gelato someday in the future, just not for now cuz dayum, it basically turns u into a crackhead within a couple spliffs, you will be trying to make sense of shit but not making any, you will be wanting more whilst still trying to handle the high from the first spliff. Good luck hardcore smokers, cuz from this strain on, i no longer consider myself a hardcore smoker. p.s. i'm talking bud yeah, not the rosin from the bud, just plain bud, if you go down for 2 days without smoking its enough for this strain to hook you up with the ride u didn't even ask for. highly recomend to "High Chasers", if ur chasing the highest high, u found it, now just take 2 days off and properly experience this b*tch as she fks you up for good, ur not gonna want anything else, extremely trippy high. EXTREMELY!!!!! So controll urself after smoking. DO NOT SMOKE THIS AT LOW TOLERANCE, smoke some weak bud first cuz if you smoke this one at baseline then get ready to trip, and i mean lsd near overdose type of trip, its just TOO POWERFULL BEWARE, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Stay lit.

Nailed it!
Fastbuds definitely stepped up their game when this delight became available, by far the fastest and best producing strain I've tried from any seedbank. I have included Gelato in every grow I've done since the first, it's just too good in terms of ease of grow, scent, flavour and the superman punch it hits with!

just shy of 4 zips in under 9 weeks
she was the first to finish in this run and with almost 4 zips I’m not complaining. the smell in flower was LOUD, she really stank up the whole place. she smells like candy with tropical flavor and gas. haven’t given a proper cure yet, so can’t comment on taste, but the high is STRONG, I whited out for the first time in years after a medium-sized joint

Question:
Q:
My Gelato is very bushy. Should I do some defoliation?
Answer:
A:
If you feel that there are bud sites that are not getting light, some light defoliation should be fine, as long as your plant is healthy to start with. Removing anything from a plant can be stressful to it, therefore it's important that all other aspects of the plant are ok before potentially stressing it with defoliation. Removing some fan leaves little by little should be fine.

Question:
Q:
Is the Gelato Auto resistant to mold?
Answer:
A:
This strain is considered to be resistant to mold, yes. Most likely it's due to it's terpene profile, which includes Pinenes and Caryophyllene, which is specifically known for its mold resisting abilities.

Question:
Q:
My gelatos got some bugs. What do you recommend to spray them with? i prefer somethin organic
Answer:
A:
If you would like to use an organic spray, you can use a solution of water and Neem oil. This should only be used during the vegetative stage as it can be damaging to flowers and alter bud flavor. During seedling stage, you can mix 8ml of Neem oil to 1 liter of water. Once in the Vegetative Stage increase to 16ml of Neem oil to 1 liter of water. If you have issues with pests during flowering stage, you can mix 5ml of baking soda per 1 liter of water or 500ml of 70% alcohol with 500ml of water. Alternatively, you can add predatory insects which are not harmful to your plants, such as ladybugs.

Question:
Q:
Do you have a feeding schedule for the Gelato?
Answer:
A:
To start, the schedule will depend on your medium. If you are in Soil, you can start feeding around 2 weeks into growth. In coco, around day 10. And in hydro, you can start feeding on day one. We suggest starting out with around 1/4 of the recommended dose of your preferred nutrients, and gradually increase the dose as you observe the plant's reaction to the feeding. Some growers prefer to feed for each watering, using less nutrients or feeding every other watering using more nutrients.

Question:
Q:
What lights should I use to grow this strain?
Answer:
A:
As a company we can't really recommend any specific type or brand of lights, however we suggest doing your research in finding the best quality of lights possible for your set up. Quality light is very important in Cannabis cultivation. It's also about preference and what works in your space best. If you have heat issues, maybe LEDs are a good choice, if it's too cold, go for HPS, etc. You should also make sure to find out the 'true wattage' of your lights before making a purchase.

Question:
Q:
Will Gelato make me feel paranoid?
Answer:
A:
This is one of our most potent strains (up to 26%THC!) , so it's not the most recommended for beginning consumers or anyone sensitive to the effects of THC. It's a balanced hybrid, so it has both Indica and Sativa effects, we recommend harvesting once you have around 80% milky trichomes to 20% amber trichomes, with no clear trichomes in order to avoid any unpleasant, racy head effects.

Question:
Q:
My Gelato Auto is on day 52 and I want to get big fat buds, do you have any advice on how to make them bigger?
Answer:
A:
Make sure you keep your plant fed and allow the light to reach all of the bud sites, this will help the buds get denser and improve yields.

Question:
Q:
How long should I dry and cure it?? Never tried one so potent before!
Answer:
A:
Generally speaking, the drying process takes about 5-6 days but it might extend longer. Allow the buds to cure for at least 4 weeks, but they become even more flavorful if cured for 6-8 weeks.

Question:
Q:
Hello. is my first time growing an auto. What pot size do u recommend? I dont have lot of space
Answer:
A:
We generally recommend using at least 3 gallon pots (11-12 liters) to allow plants to grow to their full potential. Another tip, be sure to plant your pre germinated seed into its final pot. That is to say, don't transplant your seedling from one pot to another.

Question:
Q:
What pH should my water have when flushing? Thanx
Answer:
A:
This depends on your medium, just like when you feed or water during growth. If you are in soil, flush with water pH'd 5.8-6.8. In coco, 5.5-6.5. And in hydro, around 5.5-5.8.

Question:
Q:
How does Gelato Auto take topping?
Answer:
A:
While topping is not usually recommended for autos, especially for beginning (autoflower) growers, we have seen some great results from experienced growers with this strain. That being said, topping can potentially stunt the growth or stress the plant. So it should be done with caution. LST is definitely recommended for this strain though.

Q:
I am currently growing Gelato Auto and I'm on day 47. The pistils are turning orange but the trichomes are still mostly clear. Should I wait to harvest it?

Q:
I have put neem oil on my plants with the first leaves up, and did not turn my lights of,,, now they have came up yellow, but my second set of leaves have came up and they are looking nice and green
Answer:
A:
Hello, that usually happens when foliar spraying when the lights remain on for a lot of time because the water droplets act as a magnifying glass. You should foliar spray just a couple of hours before the light fixture turns off to avoid this.

Question:
Q:
Is your Gelato Auto from 33 or 41??
Answer:
A:
Gelato 33 and 41 were created and selected by other breeders, so we feel that it wouldn’t be appropriate to claim those phenotypes as our own. During the breeding process, we made our own selection from various Gelato clones, and crossed them with our special autoflowering strains, and this is how our Gelato Auto was created.
