RIFF Hell Cat 33 (Gelato) Review

Hell Cat 33 from Riff is their version of the Gelato cannabis strain which features a distinct with berry and diesel aroma.

RIFF named their Gelato strain Hell Cat 33 and they describe the plant as having dense buds that feature dark purple hues and vibrant orange hairs frosted in white trichome crystals. The dominant terpenes for RIFF Hell Cat 33 are caryophyllene, nerolidol, linalool and humulene.

But how does this cultivar measure up to similar products like Apothecary Botanicals Gelato?

The product arrived in a standard black plastic container with security lid. Opening the top released an immediate wave of spicy sweet citrus with mild undertones of musky diesel. The aroma made us think this strain would be very flavourful but let’s see what we get.


These buds are very compact and dense to say the least. They are literally as dense as pebbles or rocks and even made a thud noise when dumped out the container. With lots of red hairs working its way through these buds the visual appearance is quite pleasing.


The spicy aroma that met out noses disappeared while smoking the product. Hell Cat 33’s flavour was closer to a sweet lemon with earthy undertones. Even though the taste was not what we expected it was quite strong and lasted right until the end.


Overall we really liked the experience of RIFF’s Hell Cat 33. Listed as having 20.3% THC content, we found it delivered a strong buzz that made our eyes feel a bit glassy, while leaving you in a calm and clear-minded state. Given the decent price and strong buzz we’d recommend trying this strain out. With that being said, we still liked RIFF’s Raider Kush just a tick more.

Since high school my friends and I have been recreational cannabis users so we decided to start Merry Jade after legalization in 2019. We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience. Each category gets a score out of 10.

Have your say!
