Get to Know Your Favorite Strain | Lemon Cherry Gelato

Discover the aromatic compounds that give Lemon Cherry Gelato such a deliciously decadent aroma and blissful effects. 

High Times named it one of their Best Strains of 2022, they included it in their list of Popular Strains to Experience in 2023, and it’s won its fair share of awards. Need another hint? This cultivar is generally considered top-shelf and heir to a dank dessert-fueled lineage. We’re talking about Lemon Cherry Gelato.

While some believe it was first bred as a phenotype of Gelato #33, others think Gelato #41 is in there somewhere. Many accept it as a cross between Sunset Sherbert, Girl Scout Cookies, and another unknown cultivar. Whatever the case may be, there’s a very good reason why people tend to get obsessed with Lemon Cherry Gelato — it’s delicious.

Its drool-worthy aroma is decadent with swirling notes of bright citrus, sweet berries, and a dank finish that’s just the right amount of gassy. Plus, if you’re into relaxing effects with a delightful hit of euphoria, this cultivar is right up your alley. 

Read on and discover the aromatic compounds that create the uniquely fruity aroma and blissful effects of the Lemon Cherry Gelato profile.

Our scientists isolate specific terpenes and aromatic compounds of popular cultivars so both cannabis and non-cannabis consumers can enjoy and benefit from botanically-derived, hemp-derived, and cannabis-derived terpenes.

Lemon Cherry Gelato Strain Terpenes | Abstrax Tech

Lemon Cherry Gelato | Terpene Profile

If you haven’t figured it out by now, Lemon Cherry Gelato has notes of lemons, cherries, and… well, gelato. The fruity elements are sweet, yes, but they add a bright, sour quality that transforms the decadence of this cultivar into something seriously dank. By gelato, we mean an indulgent swirl of sweet berries inherited from those Sherbinski Sunset Sherbert genetics. 

This is, of course, thanks to various compounds, including the dominant terpene isolates d-Limonene, beta-Myrcene, and Cadinene. 

The sour and citrus notes of Lemon Cherry Gelato are obviously very prominent. While d-Limonene isn’t necessarily the king of citrus (*cough* tropicannasulfurs *cough*), this terpene isolate still plays an important role and is often found in fruits like lemons, limes, grapefruits, oranges, etc. 

That perfect addition of sweet herbaceousness comes from beta-Myrcene. This terpene isolate can be sourced from many botanicals, from mangoes and lemongrass to hops and basil. On its own, it smells earthy and woody with distinct notes of cardamom, fruit, and musk.

The last dominant terpene, Cadinene, isn’t often found in such high quantities, so we know much less about it than we do about other isolates. Its aroma is fresh and has a woody, herbal quality (think patchouli) with slight elements of vetiver and mint. It’s also dominant in other exotic cannabis profiles like Candyland, Zen, and Blueberry Muffin

Lemon Cherry Gelato | Terplytics

Our proprietary Terplytics system allows us to deliver the most advanced botanical testing for exploratory research, sensory quantification, strain validation, product development, and consumer insights. It’s also how we developed the Loud Factor and the Gas Factor.

The Loud Factor quantifies the pungency or “loudness” of a strain. Unlike Total Aromatics by Weight, the Loud Factor assigns scores to individual compounds based on their pungency. This is important for aromatic compounds that are incredibly pungent, even at parts per billion. Basically, the higher the Loud Factor, the more likely for the aroma to be in-your-face and impossible to ignore. 


You might have guessed that the Gas Factor measures the intensity of a profile’s gassy aroma. Gassy aromas often contain high amounts of beta-Myrcene, d-Limonene, and beta-Caryophyllene, as well as flavorants typically found in gassy exotics. Considering the gassy genetics of its parentage, a Gas Factor of 91% is very respectable. 

Lemon Cherry Gelato | Terpene Profile Effects

Yes, cannabinoids like THC impart psychoactive effects (aka, they’re what get you high). However, aromatic compounds don’t just give cannabis its unique aroma and flavor. They’re also what dictate specific effects. That’s why two cultivars with the exact same cannabinoid levels may promote different experiences.

One may make you want to pick cherries all day with your friends, while the other promotes lounging, chilling, or even napping. So, if you enjoy the way Lemon Cherry Gelato makes you feel, then you can thank the unique combo of cannabinoids and various aromatic compounds.

While the terms Indica and Sativa don’t technically have anything to do with effects, the Lemon Cherry Gelato cultivar is considered a hybrid (some consider it an Indica-leaning hybrid). It’s known for its tingly body relaxation and euphoric mental state. 

Some find it a delicious addition to a creative afternoon when inspiration is needed. Others prefer to indulge in this cultivar during off-hours when no mental heavy lifting is required. Us? We have yet to discover a scenario where Lemon Cherry Gelato isn’t enjoyable.
