L.A. Gelato was created with help from renowned US cannabis breeder Sherbinski. It is 75% indica bred by crossing Acai Berry Gelato with 3 Kings Blueberry Headband and it displays pronounced indica-dominant traits. L.A. Gelato boasts very high levels of THC production, good yields indoors but truly extravagant harvests when cultivated outdoors.
This is a highly vigorous strain and one which also has a very healthy appetite for nutrients. With high adaptability to a range of climates and good resistance to plant diseases. In common with many indica and indica-dominant strains its stretch is limited to approximately 30% once flowering is initiated.
Branching is profuse as is the amount of foliage which will benefit from thinning out to allow better light penetration to the interior bud sites. Staking or trellising is recommended to help support its heavy bud development in order to prevent branches from snapping. Indoors flowering takes between 60 - 67 days with yields in the range 450 - 550 gr/m2 and planted to a recommended density of between 6 - 9 plants/m2.
Outdoors these plants can grow to an enormous 300 - 400 cm. tall and yielding between 3000 - 4000 gr. each with northern hemisphere harvests being ready in mid-October. Buds are large, dense and display some very attractive purple colouration, especially with increasing day/night temperature variations.
A complex terpene profile is reminiscent of ginger cookies, cinnamon, clove and pepper spices accompanied by notes of sweet berries, citrus peel and cedar wood. Very high THC production is up to 25% with just 0.1% CBD. Its effect is very potent, stimulating the mind while providing profoundly soothing relaxation.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
