Strain History of Lemon Cherry Gelato

Lemon Cherry Gelato is one of the many candy hybrid strains popularized by Backpackboyz—a Bay Area cannabis brand run by ex-MMA fighter Juan Quesada. After being in and out of jail multiple times, Juan Quesada decided to carve out a career in MMA in 2008, achieving a 4–2 (win-loss) record in Bellator MMA and West Coast Fighting Championship. Around 2016, Juan Quesada founded a Prop 215 cannabis delivery service out of Pittsburgh, California.

Shortly after starting his operation, Juan Quesada partnered with entrepreneur, rapper, and cannabis mogul Bully Whiz. Together, they created and popularized the Backpackboyz brand and its flagship strains, including Backpackboyz 33, Apple Mintz, and Lemon Cherry Gelato. Like Runtz, Cookies, and other contemporary US cannabis brands, Backpackboyz strains boast incredibly high potency and exotic candy and dessert flavors.

In late 2019, Backpackboyz' Lemon Cherry Gelato became an almost instant hit across the US after being sold at a Cookies dispensary in Los Angeles. Ever since, Lemon Cherry Gelato has become a household name across the US and Canada, as well as gaining popularity among smokers in other parts of the world. In 2021, the strain won 2nd Place in the Medical Category at the High Times Medical Cup in Michigan.

Genetic Lineage of Lemon Cherry Gelato

Lemon Cherry Gelato is a high-potency cannabis variety brought about by a cross of two world-renowned strains; Sunset Sherbet and Girl Scout Cookies.

Sunset Sherbet, also known as Sherbet OG, is an indica-dominant hybrid treasured for its vibrant candy aroma. Well-cured Sherbet buds boast a pungent smell that combines sweet citrus, ripe berries, and dank notes of Skunk. As you'd expect from such a smelly strain, Sunset Sherbet is also super potent, producing a full-body effect that'll relax and induce a carefree mental state.

Lemon Cherry Gelato's second parent is GSC (Girl Scout Cookies), a beloved strain with a global reputation and a long list of awards. As the name suggests, GSC offers dessert-like flavours alongside the unmistakable aroma of sweet cherry, mint and lemon. It’s also a fan-favourite among medicinal users thanks to its strong THC levels and body-centric high.
