I’m not what you call a stupendous cook, but this week, I learned that I’m far worse after I’ve smoked a bowl of Gelato Cake. Specifically, I get distracted and burn things.
Now, it’s long been documented that The Green House tends to put us on our asses with the bud they sell. If you’re planning to smoke bud from this Durango shop, you best clear your schedule because you won’t be useful for a good few hours. That goes for Gelato Cake as well.
For those of you who are Gelato Cake beginners, let me fill you in. This strain is a mix of Gelato #33 and Wedding Cake. An indica-dominant strain, Gelato Cake is the popular girl at the party and for a reason. This is one hella potent strain. Not for triflers.
People attribute side effects such as sleepiness, the munchies, and being long-lasting. Highly citrusy, Gelato Cake also has peppery and piney aromatic notes.
After grinding up some bud and packing into a bowl, I took myself outside with my new strain. The first thing I noticed about Gelato Cake is that it’s super smooth. It’s also almost instantaneously relaxing. True to its indica roots, Gelato Cake is the Empire State building of body highs.
Another major side effect of Gelato Cake was the monster-sized case of the munchies you end up with. Consequently, I decided it would be cool to bake some chocolate chip cookies. Didn’t even make the dough. Just pulled some pre-made crap out of the fridge and tossed it into the oven. Maybe even quite literally.
Turns out with a body high as killer as Gelato Cake’s, it’s very easy to get distracted and become one with the couch. Again, quite literally. I had turned on some new true-crime documentary I had pettily put off seeing because EVERYONE had seen it and not long into it I figured out why. It was eerily creepy and I was completely immersed. So much so that it wasn’t long until I could smell burning.
Dear readers. I had completely forgotten about the cookies, though they weren’t much of cookies anymore. They’d been burned to a total crisp. Totally black on the bottom. Might as well have been baking chips. Inedible, much to my munchies’ dismay. I would have to satisfy my stoned-self with some other highly processed food and that, friends, ended up being ramen, as usual. My sweet tooth would have to be quenched some other day.
Thankfully, Gelato Cake is also heavy-handed when it comes to getting some shut-eye. If you’re someone like me who struggles with sleeping, this strain will knock you into the next morning. A total sleep miracle worker.
It’s hard to pinpoint any downsides to this indica-hybrid and we’re pretty sure that’s because there aren’t any. Gelato Cake is a great sleep-aid and it launches you into a zone that’s about as relaxed as it gets. How can you pass up a strain like that?
