Relaxation will hit your IMMEDIATELY followed by a happy, sometimes giggly head-high. Positivity and Energy are two strong characteristics you can expect from the lemon sativa side of things.

Gelatos had been overtaken in popularity by Runtz but are back in the driver seat, particularly with Gelatos variants like this one that incorporate the delicious flavors of lemons and cherry, along with the best Sativa aspects that those flavors tend to impart. The high from Gelatos are just so fun and smooth, taking them up a notch with a touch more energy is well-received.
