Cannabis Strain of the Week: Gelonade

Gelonade is an award-winning Sativa-dominant hybrid known for its explosive flavor.

Strain: Gelonade
Type: Sativa Dominant
Notes: Fruity, Spice, Citrus
Mood: Energetic, Uplifting, Happy
Main Terpenes: Terpinolene, Caryophyllene, Myrcene

Gelonade is a sativa-dominant cross between Lemon Tree and Gelato #41. This strain has won many awards, including First Place for Best Sativa at the 2018 High Times Cannabis Cup. It is a popular but rather exclusive California strain, cultivated by a select few growers. Up North is one popular Gelonade brand.

The name Gelonade is a fun portmanteau of Gelato and Lemonade. The THC percentages range between 22% and 28%, but fans report a headier hit more akin to THC levels in the high 30s. As far as appearance goes, the Gelonade flower is one of the most beautiful. Dense buds reveal a saturated salad of purples, greens, and oranges covered in a thin dusting of trichomes.

A testament to the complexity—and subjectivity—of each smoking experience, Gelonade evokes a range of flavors and aromas. While Leafly reports that the strain features mostly sweet flavors like fruity citrus and vanilla, WeedMaps describes the top aromas as maple syrup, lemon, and pepper, and the dominant flavors as blueberries, cookies, and citrus. In other words, Gelonade, with its mix of herbal, fruity, lemony, earthy, spicy scents and flavors, is capable of satisfying a variety of different palettes.

Considered a potent but balanced smoke that uplifts and energizes, reports vary on the strain’s terpene profile, but dominant terpenes seem to be Terpinolene (a fruity, herbal, floral terpene that is also found in apples, lilacs, and nutmeg), Caryophyllene (providing notes of
cloves, pepper, hops), and Myrcene (thought to be an important precursor to other terpenes, delivering an earthy, vegetal quality).
