Introduction of the Strain
Have you heard about the NBA legend Larry Bird?
Well, this Gelato Cannabis Strain is named after him, and sometimes it is even called Larry Bird Strain. There is a reason why they chose him and named this marijuana after him.
This weed strain is a hybrid and was bred in San Francisco by Cookie Fam Genetics. The reason why this strain is named after the NBA player is that when the breeders were releasing the phenotypes, one of the strains they made was numbered 33.
If you remember, the jersey number of Larry Bird was 33. So that’s the reason between the player and the marijuana strains name.
Gelato Cannabis Strain is very famous for its taste and smell. The breeders mixed two different strains which have a very remarkable taste and smell to make a strain which had both of them in equal parts.
The two strains from which this weed was created are Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies.
