Watermelon Gelato

from SunMed Growers

A couch-locking smooth, mind-fogging heavy hitter.

SunMed Growers have found a new gem for their treasure trove of Cannabis genetics that goes by the name of Watermelon Gelato – rapidly becoming one of their tastiest varieties and representing the best of its illustrious parentage in ways that Marylanders love. A cross between the eminent Watermelon Zkittlez and renowned Gelato 45, it combines to form one of those rare genetics that are as aromatic as they are potent.

The SunMed team delivered on their cultivation by producing a wonderfully delicious and potent profile that absolutely smacks. It boasts traditional indica effects and is pretty evenly proportioned between myrcene, limonene and caryophyllene, with a dollop of linalool to bring it all together. Truly a couch-locking smooth, mind-fogging heavy hitter, the Watermelon Gelato is an excellent candidate to slow down your mind and melt away your pain – bringing that quintessential, stoney smackdown that so many of us love, and so many patients rely upon.

But the profile aside, these are some of the best quality colas SunMed has produced. They have a beautiful, healthy coloration, an aroma that can fill the room, and a dense coating of very sticky, oily trichomes that indicate a heavy resin production. The nugs would stick to each other and my fingers, and everytime a trichome was exposed, wafts of melon-fruity gas and a smooth dankness would not only reach my nose, but the noses of everyone in the room. 

I look forward to smoking a lot more of this delicious cultivar, as it’s sure to be one of SunMed’s bestsellers for quite awhile. Beautiful nugs, potent effects and delicious aromas are what we should expect from our quality Cannabis – and SunMed treats us to all three in the funked up fruit of Watermelon Gelato.
