UP Gelato 29 UP20 Review & Cannabis Photos

UP's Gelato 29 is a sativa-leaning cultivar with a sweet fruity aroma, fluffy buds and at least 20% THC content.

Gelato 29 from UP is a sativa-dominant strain with Gelato genetics.

The buds are fluffy light green with touches of purple, orange pistils, shiny white trichomes and a sweet terpene profile. In terms of flavour, many users describe the taste as a bold fruity and berry with hints of vanilla and sweet cream. Based off what we could research this strain’s dominant terpenes include Limonene and trans-Caryophyllene. Like UP’s other flower, this cultivar is grown indoors at a facility in New Brunswick and guarantees to deliver at least 20% THC content.

So how does this product stack up UP’s Ghost Train Haze or even the Gelatti hybrid from MSIKU?

Smell

It’s been a few months since we’ve reviewed a product from UP, however like previous strains this one arrived in a medium sized red bag with resealable zipper opening. We tore open the package and quickly noticed a strong aroma. While the exact smell was hard to pinpoint, we’d compare it to something like a sweet herbal with hints of mint icing.

Appearance

We emptied the contents of the bag (which did not include a humidity shield) and were a bit disappointed with the appearance. As you’ll see in the photos below there was a pile of tiny shake-sized budlets with one medium sized nug. Overall the colour was a drab brownish-green olive which didn’t help either. One of its saving graces is the contrasting orange hairs over a thick frosty trichome layer.

Flavour

In terms of flavour, it’s definitely not the same level as the strong aroma. However the taste is still somewhat pleasant and reminded us of a sweet herbal mint but mild to moderate in strength as it faded pretty quickly after exhaling.

Experience

Listed with 21.2% THC content and a price tag of $26.95 for 3.5 grams, we found UP’s Gelato 29 offered decent value even though the product was a bit dry and flaky. In terms of overall experience, this flower delivered a strong high which included a sense of mental calm and clarity combined with a mild glassy or sleepy eyes feeling. If you’re looking for a reasonable priced sativa with a nice high and strong aroma then this flower might be worth checking out.

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.
