Tribal Gelato Mint Review

As its name suggests, Gelato Mint smells like a fresh mint dessert with strong pepper notes and earthy pine undertones.

Yesterday we tried UP’s Gelato 29 so today let’s continue that theme with Tribal Gelato Mint, an indica-dominant flower created by crossing Cookies & Cream with the company IT’s strain named It.

As you might expect by the name, Gelato Mint’s aroma is comparable to a fresh mint dessert with undertones of pepper and earthy pine. In terms of appearance, Tribal describes the buds as dark green with purple sugar leaves, thick trichome layer and amber-coloured pistils.

So how does this product compare to the original Gelato or Gelatti strain?

The product arrived in a black plastic container that reminded us of a tuna can. We opened the lid and peeled back the nitrogen seal which immediately released a very strong musky floral aroma with undertones of citrusy lemonade. However we did not detect any mint which we expected given the name.


We dumped out the contents and noted Tribal did not include a humidity shield, but perhaps the nitrogen seal is sufficient. With the contents on full display it’s clear these buds had a serious trichome layer that was glistening in the light. The beautifully well trimmed buds were mostly small in size, bright green with strong orange hair accents, sticky, dense and even some dark green patches. It just would have been nice to see bigger buds.


In terms of flavour profile, the best description we could think of was a strong musky floral with a mild herbal undertone on exhale. The bud was fairly fresh so the smoke itself was quite smooth. The floral flavour leads the way so be prepared, but overall the aroma is still bolder.


Listed with 23.4% THC content and a price tag of $34.97 for 3.5 grams, we found Tribal’s Gelato Mint delivered a strong high. It felt like a strong body buzz focused around the eyes (heavy feeling) combined with a mild mental fog which caused a short attention span with regards to focus. This product would be a good one for the end of the day but probably not an ideal way to start.

Gelato Mint from Tribal is an indica-dominant strain with a sweet floral aroma and flavour. With frosty green buds and 23.4% THC content, we found this product delivered a strong indica high. You should expect a strong body buzz focused around the eyes (heavy feeling) combined with a mild mental fog which creates short attention span with regards to focus. A good flower for the end of the day but probably not the best way to start.

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!
