Acai Berry Gelato

A cross between Pink Panties and Sunset Sherbet strains (cultivars), Acai Berry Gelato is a sativa-dominant hybrid of 70% sativa and 30% indica. Its tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) level is a moderate 15%-19%, with cannabidiol (CBD) content of less than 1%. Acai Berry has been reported as having uplifting, talkative effects and a lemony, piney, flowery, berry flavor. Acai Berry may be useful for managing stress, anxiety, depression, headaches, ADHD, and lack of appetite.

The Acai Berry Gelato strain is a sativa-dominant strain bred by Sherbinskis, the founders of several gelato family strains. It offers a full-flavored smoke with sweet and fruity notes, hints of earth reminiscent of other gelato strains, and a slightly sour tropical exhale. The Acai Berry Gelato high is reportedly carefree, uplifting, and non-sedating, making it a perfect daytime option.

Growing

growing strains

The Acai Berry Gelato plant is tall and has slender leaves that reflect its sativa genes with tight bunches of dense buds. The deep green buds show purple hints and thin, orange hairs with tiny, deep amber crystal trichomes.

This strain is considered challenging to grow partly because the strain is mainly sold online as clones. However, if you can get your hands on the original strain and have the chance to grow it yourself, it’s usually a little hardier and more forgiving than indicas.

Acai Berry Gelato can be grown outdoors and indoors; however, its sativa-heavy genetics means that the plants can grow up to 6 feet tall, making growing them indoors tricky. The outdoor yield size is about 15-20 ounces per plant (approximately 550 g/plant), while the indoor yield size is 1-2 ounces per square foot (about 400 g/m²). If you are growing the plants inside, keep the grow room warm and dry, and ensure that the cannabis plants receive adequate exposure to light. The Acai Berry Gelato strain is a photoperiod flower, which means it needs over 12 hours of darkness to initiate the flowering phase properly.

Height

This strain grows tall and can reach a height of 60-80 inches (152-203 cm) when grown indoors or outdoors.

Humidity and Temperature

In general, all Gelato cannabis strains thrive in warm and humid environments. If you are not cultivating in a region with a warm and humid climate, it is recommended that you try to replicate the conditions indoors.

Flowering

The Acai Berry Gelato strain has an average flowering time of 58-61 days.
