Black Cherry Gelato
Black Cherry Gelato is the cross of the strains Black Cherry Funk and Acai Berry Gelato 49. Black Cherry Funk is the cross of DJ Short’s Blueberry with Black Cherry Soda. While Acai Berry Gelato 49 is the cross of Pink Panties and Sunset Sherbert. The leaves of Black Cherry Gelato colas are a mix of purple and green hues. However, I found it hard to see the leaves underneath the layers of resinous trichome crystals and tiny white hairs. There was also a fair amount of orange hairs balancing out the purple and green tones.
Black Cherry Gelato Strain
While digging into the scent, I really got lost in the nose of the flowers. I found that the aroma has a very forward sweet-tart cherry nose complemented by delicate earthy and herbal notes. Above all, I love the flavor profile of the inhale. It begins with a smooth sweet-tart cherry flavor profile soon after followed by floral earthy notes hitting the back of your throat. I found the initial taste to be very similar to biting into a black cherry.
Subsequently, one thing I always look for in a top-shelf strain is a very smooth smoking flower that burns to clean white ash. I found the smoothness I seek to be very present in the Cherry Gelato Strain. That same smoothness I saw in the inhale continued through the exhale with the addition of some very pleasant tropical, herbal, and earthy notes.
The high was an extremely enjoyable experience for me. I found it to be very relaxing while not too heavy, a very clean high. These are the kind of flowers I can smoke all day long. So I would say the happy uplifting high is perfect for a lazy Saturday during a pandemic.
