This tasty Gelato Crumble is made in-house at MPC! Using high-quality Gelato Flower as starting material!
Gelato Crumble is a slightly indica dominant hybrid (55% indica/45% sativa) strain created through a cross of the infamous Sunset Sherbet X Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies strains. This dank bud is infamous for its insanely delicious flavour and hugely powerful effects that are fueled by a THC level that hits its low point at 20% on average. Gelato has a flavour that’s said to be much like a sweet sherbet, with fruity blueberry and orange flavours. The aroma is just as sickly sweet, with a lavender citrus berry bouquet that has a woody effect as the nugs are broken apart and smoked. Gelato buds have large and lumpy super dense grape-shaped dark forest green nugs with rich purple and orange hairs and a super sticky coating of visible resin droplets.
Effects & Benefits of Gelato Crumble
Although it has a tasty flavour, Gelato is definitely best loved for its effects. Even with its slight indica dominance, the high is head heavy in nature and won’t leave you sedated or couch-locked. It starts with a cerebral head rush that hits you in the forehead with an uplifted euphoria and a sense of slightly focused energy. As this head high blissfully builds, a creeping body buzz will slowly wash over you, leaving you completely relaxed and calm with a sense of peace and well-being. These powerful and surprisingly well-balanced effects make Gelato the perfect choice for patients suffering from muscle spasms, chronic pain, inflammation, chronic fatigue, and headaches or migraines.
What is Live Resin?
Live resin is a form of marijuana concentrate that gets its name because it lets smokers experience the pure essence of cannabis — Notably, its flower buds. The “live” part of “live resin” comes from the fact that this marijuana concentrate is processed. So the “resin” part is simply the description of the concentrate’s trichomes, all of which contain flavonoids, cannabinoids and terpenes.
Meanwhile, live resin comes in different forms, two of which are live resin sauce and cured live resin. Live resin sauce is also known as “terp sauce” or simply “sauce.” It’s a form of live resin marijuana concentrate that was recently made but is already rising in popularity because of its intense flavours and the aroma that it gives out. Live resin sauce has a high amount of terpene in it, which is its scent and flavour. It is said that the amount of terpene found inside a mason jar of live resin sauce is more substantial than the regular amount of live resin. Liquidized live resin is also called “sauce” and is similar to amber or dark yellow.
Plus, there are cured live resin — Curing is known as the technique that marijuana smokers use to preserve the cannabis buds inside the herb to get it prepared for extracting the good stuff inside. The difference here is that resin is known as marijuana concentrate. This means you can’t have live resin if you don’t let it go through the proper curing process. Sometimes “cured” live resin could refer to just about anything, so any form of concentrated cannabis that goes through an effective curing process is known as “cured live resin.”
Live resin is pretty new for marijuana strains or derivatives from widely used extraction techniques. The reason why it’s so popular among both marijuana enthusiasts and professional growers today is the process of making live resin is so unique, which sets it apart from other preservation and extraction techniques. That’s because instead of the standard way of draining the moisture from the cannabis plant, live resin stores it instead.
Another part of curing live resin is harvesting fresh cannabis plants and freezing them to below zero degrees. The marijuana herb is frozen to make the entire extraction process for live resin easier.
After they’re frozen, the plants are drained of their chlorophyll and moisture. The trichomes that come with the plant, an essential ingredient in live resin, will then be exposed to strong amounts of light, heat, physical pressure and oxygen. Since the cannabis plants used for making live resin will freeze the plant, the cannabinoids inside the plant and the trichomes are well-preserved. Another advantage of freezing cannabis leaves for the live resin is that it retains its aroma and original flavour, even after it ends up becoming live resin or live resin sauce.
Live resin comes in a deep yellow or amber colour. It also has a sticky consistency, somewhat resembling sauce or candle wax in texture — Not too hard, or not too watery. The runniness of the finished product will all depend on whoever makes the live resin.
