San Bacio Gelato was bred with significant input from renowned US cannabis breeder Sherbinski. It is a 75% indica hybrid strain bred by crossing Bacio Gelato with 3 Kings Blueberry Headband and it shows definite indica-dominant traits. San Bacio Gelato produces very high levels of THC, large yields indoors and enormous harvests when cultivated outdoors.
This is a really vigorous strain and it has a great hunger for nutrients. Possessing high adaptability to a range of climates, both arid and humid, it also shows good resistance to plant diseases. Branching is heavy along with the amount of foliage. The primary layers will benefit greatly from thinning in weeks 1, 3 and 6 of florescence to allow better light penetration to the interior bud sites thereby increasing yields. 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 extremely sticky.
A complex terpene profile is reminiscent of berries, cinnamon and black pepper with earthy notes of citrus peel pine wood. Very high THC production is up to 25% with just 0.1% CBD. Its effect is very potent and hard-hitting, and it may well be altogether too much for some people.

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.
