Monkey Budz, Guava Gelato  is an interesting evenly-balanced hybrid strain of cannabis. A cross between Thin Mint GSC and Sunset Sherbert. This particular phenotype is known for a distinct and unique smell/flavor combo that sets it apart from the rest. Although much of the Internet attributes this strain to a mysterious “Fruiti Labs,” the most likely origin of this strain is the famous cannabis grow run by Sherbinkski. Sherbinkski is a cannabis company that specializes in all forms of cannabis consumption as well as lifestyle products and branding.

The smell of these flowers is the primary reason Guava Gelato has earned itself a distinction from the rest of the pack. The terpene profile in this bud is exclusively unique to this phenotype of Gelato, as it contains aromas of creamy tropical fruits mixed with piña colada and what most can only describe as a sharp hoppy scent. The flavor is quite similar and tastes like, as one reviewer put it, “a piña colada with hops.”

The effects of this strain are no different than those provided by Gelato itself. It provides an uplifting effect at the onset of the high that is sure to bring feelings of elation and euphoria into your mind. This strain is often used by patients who need to improve their focus in order to complete a to-do list while also relieving any physical aches and pains that come with chronic pain. Those who smoke Guava Gelato do so with the intention of alleviating symptoms of chronic pain, inflammation, insomnia, and gastrointestinal issues.
