Whether it tickles your nose as you drive through McDonald’s drive-through for a vanilla cone or the aroma smothers as you walk into Molly Moon’s for ice cream stuffed with Pop-Tarts, there’s something beautifully lifting about the sugary aroma of ice cream. The Sugar Cone strain packs this feeling into a new strain vying to compete with Gelato’s and Runtz strain’s of the world.
Connected Cannabis created the Sugar Cone strain by Breeding Gelato 45 with the always wonderful Cookies n’ Cream strain. While you don’t see this Starfighter-cross often, it was all the rage around 2017. Its creamy vanilla aromas and spicy flavors made it a go-to. Gelato and its numerous phenotypes have shown terrific resilience in a cannabis market where new strains pop up in your local dispensary every single week.
Slowly but surely, Gelato crosses like the Sugar Cone strain are leaking into the market. Growing Gelato can be a pain, but consumers can’t get enough of its creamy berry terps and purple ambiance. Crossing Gelato with a strain that has already proved itself as commercially viable makes a lot of sense.
Sugar Cone produces wild colored flowers that have almost equal parts green, purple, orange, and white. The hairs and defined trichomes give this bud an exquisite texture that’s readily apparent. Dispensaries selling it report not only does it decrease stress but lifts the mood with a euphoric head rush.
