Top 7 Best American Marijuana of 2020
American genetics are particularly sought after by breeders around the world due to their potency, flavor and ability to generate resin. Therefore, it is not surprising that many seed banks market these varieties, as they are usually the best sellers each year.
We begin with one of the best-known families within this type of strain, the LA Gelato. Gelato marijuana is brought to us by one of the most well-established seed banks in the American sector. We are talking nothing less than Humboldt Seeds.
To obtain this wonderful LA Gelato, the seed bank, together with the collaboration of the legendary breeder Sherbinsky, combined a sweet Acai Berry Gelato with a 3 Kings BHB. The result is a marijuana strain with exclusively powerful genetics and with a markedly delicious, complex aroma.
The shape of LA Gelato is compact but presents vigorous growth, such that when grown outdoors, if its height is not controlled, it can reach up to 4 meters. Whether indoors or outdoors, it is recommended to apply a good SCROG to control the height of this strain.
LA Gelato has a flowering period of 60 to 67 days when grown indoors. In the case of outdoor crops, the strain can be harvested around three weeks after summer. Also noteworthy is that LA Gelato is a pest-resistant and easily grown strain.
Within this very short flowering time, LA Gelato can produce up to 550 grams per square meter indoors, while outdoors it can produce up to 4 kilos per plant in the case of larger specimens. This reflects its good production capacity. So be prepared for excellent yields.
Thanks to a THC concentration ranging between 20% and 25%, its effect is typically powerful. You will feel a cloud of creativity and lasting psychoactivity wash over yoy. Finally, its taste is very rich thanks to a complex mixture of aromas including cookie, ginger, clove, citrus and berries.
