Garlotti is a hybrid strain that despite only having a slight edge towards Indica in terms of composition (60/40) takes on a lot of Indica-like traits that lovers of Gelato strains should adore. Garlotti comes from Chem and Gelato lineage and absorbed a lot of their most attractive traits, like a magnificent earthy taste with a note of chem-breath and a high THC level. The hybrid was then crossed with Grape MAC by Cannarado Genetics to form Garlotti. If you can nab some Garlotti with THC in the mid-20s, you might gain the power to dissolve your unpleasant mood, assuming you can take the smell. Here’s what you need to know about this aggressively herby palette-cleanser.
Garlotti lives up to its name with a flavor that’s like dumping an Italian spice cabinet into your mouth, with hints of herbal wood tones, flares of peppery spice, mellow tastes like sage and other herbs, a hint of sweet fruit, and of course the overwhelming pungent nose-curling twang of garlic. Just a whiff of the strain and you’ll know that it hides potent effects under its profile of Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Limonene. This isn’t a strain for the faint of tongue or the secretive smoker who wants to hide their habit from a roommate or landlord. This is a strain that announces itself to the world, hangs around on your breath for hours, and has powerful mind-altering effects to back it up.
Before we get into that though, let’s talk about the Garlotti plant a bit. Behind that garlic-spicy, herbal sweetness is a plant with a hashy smell coming off its olive-green buds, inlaid with purple colors beneath a solid trichome layer. Its pistils are bright amber. The strain takes up to 70 days to finish flowering but produces high yields when properly cared for (we recommend frequent pruning and monitoring the plants for pests).
Once you wrap your head (and nose) around Garlotti’s palette, the high starts to sink in. It’s mellow-relaxing but not sedating. You’ll feel your mental stresses wash out of you, leaving a clear and buzzing brain in their place without any pain or anxiety. We recommend this calm and tingly strain for a day of doing crafts and hobbies, going to the spa, watching your favorite shows, fishing, reading, or just doing nothing at all.
Despite the evidence of a harsh flavor profile, the strain’s tastes are actually relaxing, inducing feelings of calm without forcing you to feel sedated. You can still enjoy your hobbies on Garlotti as you puff on its grape and garlic woodland flavors. We recommend getting a hot bath ready for the pleasant afternoon ahead.
