Gelato 33 X Birthday Cake
If you don’t know Gelato by now, let us do you a favor and introduce you. It’s the literal definition of a dankenstein strain. In fact, it’s a dank dankenstein strain. Named after the Italian word for ice cream, Gelato brings together two dankenstein strains to make one of the strongest and best-tasting strains in today’s modern world. Gelato was created in California, just like most of these dankenstein monsters. You should smoke Gelato with caution, as it may blow your mind if you’re a relatively new smoker.
This strain, alongside things like Thin Mint, is considered to be some of the best strains of all time. A partial list of some of the best strains of all time is as follows:
- Thin Mint strain
- Gelato 25, 33, 41, 45
- Orange Kush strain
- Sour Mango strain
- Birthday Cake strain
- Pink Berry strain
- And much more

Some people call the Gelato strain Gelato Kush, Gelato Cookies, Gelato hybrid, Bacio Gelato strain, flower Gelato, etc.
GELATO: HYBRID, INDICA OR SATIVA?
Gelato is a hybrid. Most of the strains created these days are hybrids, many of which are 50/50 hybrids. The reason for this is more and more people are beginning to favor balanced hybrids for their ability to make you feel like you’re receiving a warm hug from someone you love, while also experiencing those head massagers that feel so damn good. You know, the spiky ones that no-one is really sure why they feel so good, but damn do they. Gelato, and a growing list of dankenstein strains, are 50/50 hybrids for this exact reason.
San Francisco breeders, Cookie Fam Genetics, decided that Sunset Sherbert and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies weren’t good enough on their own. Nope. They decided to take these two dank strains and mix them together. The final product was Gelato. They picked the thirty-third (33rd) phenotype and this because known as Gelato, or Larry Bird. Larry Bird being number 33 for one of the teams out on the West Coast:
- Sunset Sherbert
- Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies
Not only did Cookies Fam Genetics decide to use Girl Scout Cookies, they decided to use the prized phenotype of GSC, Thin Mint GSC.
GELATO THC PERCENTAGE
What is considered high THC? Remember that the average hybrid strain contains around 13% THC, so anything that’s higher than this is considered a strain that has high THC value. Gelato weighs in at around 25%, which is a strong THC percentage. Though this isn’t the strongest strain compared to others out there, it’s also not one that you’re going to want to take away endlessly on.
Gelato 33 X Birthday Cake
is a boutique dankenstein strain. It’s incredibly expensive. In North America it’s about $20 a gram, give or take depending on the dispensary you visit. However, in Amsterdam the price is much higher. That is because supply is incredibly low (only about 1/10 coffeeshops will have this strain), which drives the price up. You’re looking at spending about $40 a gram. It’s unfortunate, but it’s worth the price if you use something like a flower vaporizer.
As mentioned before, Gelato is worth paying $40 a gram for if you’re smoking through a flower vaporizer. That is because it’s far more efficient to use these to get high. It’s actually better, flavor-wise, to vape because there’s no combustion of plant material. However, Gelato is one of those strains that tastes so damn good that it doesn’t really matter how you smoke it. Just make sure you grind it up first. The full taste profile of Gelato is:
GELATO OIL, WAX, SHATTER, EDIBLES, ETC.
This strain is a very popular choice for concentrate creators thanks to the combination of its high potency and fantastic taste. Many companies pick Gelato to be one of their cartridges as well; they know a Gelato cartridge will sell well since it’s such a well-known dankenstein strain.
Edibles don’t generally require any special strains to make. Flavour and potency are the same regardless of what strain you use because you’re mixing it with so many other things. However, some edible companies do like to use danker strains with a recognized taste (like OG Kush chocolate bars), because they can make them taste like OG Kush, which is a very desirable flavor. Basically, it’s kind of pointless using Gelato to make edibles, because it’s so damn expensive. However, you could use your leftover Already Vaped Bud (AVB) mixed with a fat or oil, to easily make edibles using Gelato strain.
Originally from the famous Cookie Fam of the Bay Area, Gelato is a cross between Sunset Sherbetand Thin Mint GSC. Since its birth, a number of phenotypes have been released, all with their own unique attributes. One of them is Gelato #33, a balanced hybrid with compact buds, staying true to its Cookie genetics. Like other Gelato phenotypes, Gelato #33 is covered with fiery orange hairs while its buds can be dark green to purple. With sweet citrus and fruity flavors, Gelato #33 offers an uplifting and energetic high that is perfect for any post-work activity after a long day. 50/50 Hybrid.
