Gelato Strain Cannabinoids

THC 18.83 - 21.17% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.36 - 3.88% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.2 - 0.73% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.05 - 0.55% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.18 - 0.21% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.24 - 0.9% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

This is a very very good strain, got some other dispensary in Michigan and my first experience with it was absolutely stunning I absolutely my jaw dropped I could not believe how complex the high actually was. Super good for insomnia, way better than antidepressants I'm not big on taste although it does help it did taste good I'm just I'm more on the effects and on the taste. I have about 10 grows under my belt I've got it pretty well down so I don't expect to have any problems I have ordered five seeds from Growers choice and hope that they deliver like they usually do with good genetics. I enjoy growing in myself for medicinal purposes as well as recreational I like the fact that I know what I'm putting on my plants and I've gotten stuff off the street it's just horrible it's has dark black hard ass and you know it's not good for you so I pretty much grow my own medicine now this is definitely on the top of my list for a long time.!

Gelato is one of the best strains they found

Write your reply

I got some, not properly cured, it was quit wet, but still sticky. It got a good citrus predominent smell, with hint of something I don't get, but it does smell like a piece of cake almost. Nice strong high, which is balanced, like I could clearly feel the head high and the body high. I wasn't too sedated, I was still able to do basic stuff, but with laziness, it got me quit creative, this was the best part of it. It could help for insomnia, depression, and pain I guess, at least this is how it worked on me, I didn't get hungry though

Yes, the Gelato strain makes you feel hungry and builds an impressive appetite. But some users report that they are not as hungry after gelato as they might be after using other strains.
