Bacio is Italian for the word, kiss. Gelato strains of cannabis are known for their sweet and fruity flavors. So, according to its name, this hybrid strain provides those lucky enough to find it, with a kiss of sweetness.
Besides its pleasant taste, Bacio Gelato is also known for its rich smoke and potent effects. In fact, it is one of the most potent Gelato strains. Medical marijuana patients love it for its therapeutic potential – and recreational consumers love it for its unique effects.
A strain that can be beneficial to so many – and in so many different ways, definitely deserves the spotlight. That’s why we’re taking a moment to examine what makes Bacio Gelato such a crowd favorite.
First let’s start with its genetics. Bacio Gelato is a cross of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies and Sunset Sherbert. Thin Mint Cookies is a famous subtype of Girl Scout Cookies, which we’ll get to in a bit.
Sunset Sherbert, aka Sherbet or Sherbert OG, is an indica leaning hybrid strain of Pink Panties and Girl Scout Cookies. Pink Panties is a mix of Burmese Kush and Florida Kush – and is known for its smooth smoke and functional high.
With a who’s who list of cannabis strains as ancestors, it’s easy to understand why Bacio Gelato is so sought after.
Descended from Weed Royalty?
Girl Scout Cookies is a descendant of two classic, old-school strains that have influenced the development of many hybrid strains we enjoy today. When we say old school, we mean it. We’re talking about – OG Kush and Durban Poison.
OG Kush is believed to be a hybrid of Lemon Thai, Chemdawg, and a Pakistani Hindu Kush. Although OG Kush’s story goes back to the early 1990s, Durban Poison’s history goes back much further. Durban Poison is a landrace strain that’s native to the area near the port city of Durban, in South Africa. Durban Poison is a sativa strain that’s thrived for hundreds, if not, thousands of years in the mountainous terrain around Durban.
The way its genetics adapted to the unique climate and terrain in South Africa gave Durban Poison its unique flavor profile and effects. It’s often referred to as the “coffee” of cannabis because of the boost in energy and creativity it can provide.
Durban Poison’s unique sativa genetics have served an important role in the development of many of today’s popular hybrids. In addition to Girl Scout Cookies, its genetics have helped create famous offspring that include Cherry Pie, Durban Nights, Poison Kush, and many others.

Bacio Gelato Strain Effects
With its award-winning ancestors and unique effects, Bacio Gelato has become a favorite cannabis strain of medical patients and recreational customers alike. Before we get to the effects, let’s talk about its rich flavor.
The first thing you notice when you vape or smoke some Bacio Gelato flower is its smooth and slightly sweet flavor – similar to a blend of berries and vanilla. Upon exhaling, you’ll notice its thick and creamy smoke with sweet overtones.
As its effects start to set in, you may experience an overall sense of full-body relaxation. But, thanks to its Durban Poison genetics in its background, you may also notice an uplifting mental effect.
Although the effects of cannabis will be different for all – it’s safe to say that Bacio Gelato is best for the more experienced cannabis consumer. Not only is it known to have high THC percentages, that can exceed 20%, but it’s also rich in terpenes.
As far as potential health benefits of Bacio Gelato, medical marijuana (MMJ) patients have noted that it could be helpful in alleviating chronic pain, mood swings, loss of appetite, anxiety, depression, and nausea.
Bacio Gelato is also a hit with recreational consumers due to its potential to promote:
- Full body relaxation
- Mental stimulation
- Feelings of euphoria
- Arousal (serve as an herbal aphrodisiac)
As we mentioned, it’s Bacio Gelato’s mix of high THC percentage and its terpene profile that contribute to its robust effects. So, let’s take a look at the terpenes you can expect to find in Bacio Gelato.
Bacio Gelato Terpenes
A recent batch of Bacio Gelato Flower that was cultivated by our parent company, Wondergrove Cannabis, was sent out for analysis. The Certificate of Analysis identified 13 different terpenes in this sample of Bacio Gelato. The predominant terpenes found in the Bacio Gelato included Limonene, Caryophyllene, and Nerolidol. The analysis also found the terpenes Humulene, Myrcene, and Pinene.
Limonene has a strong and uplifting aroma, resembling the scent of citrus fruits like lemons and oranges. It’s also one of the terpenes responsible for the citrus notes found in some cannabis strains, like Super Lemon Haze.
Limonene is believed to have mood-enhancing and stress-reducing properties. The invigorating and uplifting scent of limonene is often associated with increased feelings of positivity and relaxation.
Limonene may also have potential antimicrobial properties – and could be effective against certain bacteria and fungi. Limonene has demonstrated anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and may have the potential to support digestive function.
Like other terpenes, limonene can interact with other compounds in cannabis to produce an entourage effect. In addition to cannabis, limonene occurs in the peels of citrus fruits. It’s also present in various herbs and spices, like rosemary and peppermint.
Limonene is considered safe for consumption and is commonly used as a flavoring agent in food and beverages. It’s also commonly used as a fragrance in cosmetics.
Caryophyllene, also known as beta-caryophyllene, is another terpene that’s abundant in nature – occurring in things like black pepper, hops, spinach, rosemary, cloves, oregano, cinnamon, and black pepper. Caryophyllene tends to have a spicy peppery scent.
Potential therapeutic benefits of Caryophyllene may include being anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antidepressant, sleep-supportive, and appetite suppressing qualities. Not only that, but enjoying foods rich in beta-caryophyllene before consuming marijuanas could actually enhance THC’s anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.
It’s believed caryophyllene is the only terpene to interact with our endocannabinoid system through CB2 receptors found in our immune system. Because of this, it can help reduce pain and inflammation – without promoting a high sensation.1
And its ability to bind with CB2 receptors gives beta-caryophyllene its strong anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. Research also indicates that beta-caryophyllene could be helpful in treating certain cancers and neurodegenerative diseases.2
Finally, if you find yourself feeling a bit too high, eating a couple of black pepper balls could help. That’s because the terpenes in black pepper (pinene, myrcene, and beta-caryophyllene) could help reduce feelings of anxiety and help calm you down.
Foods That Can Impact Your High
Nerolidol is known for its woody, floral, and slightly citrusy aroma. It often carries notes of fresh bark, flowers, and hints of fruity sweetness. Nerolidol can be found in a variety of plants, including neroli, ginger, jasmine, tea tree, and lemongrass.
Nerolidol is believed to have sedative properties that may contribute to relaxation and stress relief. Nerolidol may also have anti-inflammatory benefits. Nerolidol has demonstrated antimicrobial and antifungal properties, which could make it useful for combating certain infections.
Nerolidol also seems to enhance the penetration of other compounds through the skin. This could make it useful in topical applications for pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
Terpenes and the Entourage Effect
One thing most terpenes have in common is that they can play a key role in unlocking the potential benefits of the Entourage Effect. This is a special synergy that’s made possible by the interaction of multiple cannabinoids and terpenes.
