Both parent strains have a tasty profile, which was passed down to this weed; expect a delectable flavor when smoking this strain. Aside from its terpene profile, the Gelato 48 Feminized plant also got its outstanding appearance from its parents.
Since it is slightly leaning on the indica side, with a ratio of 55% indica to 45% sativa, tokers can expect an almost balanced physical and cerebral buzz.

As a result, the cerebral buzz will feel trippy, while the physical high will let its tokers feel relaxed simultaneously. The body buzz will discourage its smokers from moving, but it will not lock them on the couch, while the mental effect will alter their perception by making the time feel slow and heightening their sense of hearing.
Because of the sweet fruity taste of this strain, it was immediately linked to the sweet Italian dessert, gelato. A mix of fruity and earthy flavor can be noted, thanks to the terpene profile of its parents.
Aside from its recreational effects, the feminized Gelato 48 also offers some medical benefits. As the cerebral buzz rushes in, negative thoughts will be washed away and replaced with pleasing ideas. This mood-boosting result is effective in battling anxiety, depression, and stress. Additionally, as the body feels light when the soothing effects kick in, it can also relieve fatigue and pain. When these results are combined, it can effortlessly ease its tokers in a drowsy state, making it an excellent weed for those who have insomnia.
The Gelato 48 Feminized weed does not have any reported severe side effects. However, the usual dry eyes and dry mouth are almost a given. Although minor, they can really cause discomfort, but worry not because they can be easily assuaged by keeping yourself hydrated; drink a lot of water and apply eye drops.
Despite not having known serious drawbacks, it is essential to note that this ganja is a heavy hitter; before you know it, you can already feel its effects. Novice smokers can be overwhelmed by this and will have to adjust to this for a while. Even though it is not really a major side effect, some can find it uncomfortable. It is recommended to smoke this carefully and to mind your dosage.
The Gelato 48 Feminized plant is not very easy to grow since it is not available in seeds. So, in order to grow this plant, you will have to acquire a plant trimming. Aside from not being commercially available, caring for this herb can be pretty demanding; this is not exactly recommended for novice cultivators. However, to make things a little bit easier, this plant is an all-female version, which ensures that you will not waste time, effort, and resources in cultivating some male plants that will only end up being thrown away. Additionally, it can be grown indoors and outdoors, but the growing conditions should be monitored.
When grown outdoors, the climate should be warm and humid, with a consistent temperature of about 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Then you can harvest it as early as late September up to mid-October. So unless you have a dependable climate, it is advised to grow it indoors in order to control the environment better.
When it is indoors, you will need to have enough space as it can grow quite tall. The purple tones found on this plant can be triggered by exposing it to colder night temperatures. The flowering time will be completed after 8 to 10 weeks. When all these conditions are met, whether you plant it indoors or outdoors, an above-average yield can be collected.
