Black Cherry Gelato

Black Cherry Gelato is a hybrid strain (cultivar) created by crossing Acai and Black Cherry Funk genetics. Backpack Boyz also makes a version of Black Cherry Gelato that crosses Sherbet and Blackberry. Regardless, Black Cherry Gelato’s THC content reportedly ranges between 22% and 25%, with almost nonexistent CBD levels, typically below 1%.

Black Cherry Gelato is a slightly indica-dominant hybrid with 60% indica and 40% sativa. Still, most users describe it as a typical indica with calming and sedative properties.

Fans of this hybrid strain report a mix of robust flavors like sweet berry with mild wood notes, marked by the dominant terpenes delta-3carene, pinene, terpinolene, and beta-caryophyllene. Black Cherry Gelato’s complete chemical profile makes it a sweet bud with relaxing and euphoric effects.
