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?

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.
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.
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.
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.
