Gelato Twist… Sunset Paradise is an indica dominant hybrid that has its own distinct personality. A very quick finisher, this portrait of beauty delivers the ultimate color show and fat flavorful buds that ooze a sense of the exotic.
Sunset Paradise is a luxury scoop of the popular strain Gelato (Thin Mint GSC x Sunset Sherbert), whose fruity tones and powerful relaxation qualities has put this delicious cannabis dessert at the top of many aficionados’ menu. This version arrives in the form of a refined Paradise blend to create the ultimate antidote to the stresses and strains of modern life.
Thin Mint GSC (formerly known as Girl Scout Cookies) is well known for its potency thanks to an explosive combination of stand out sativa and indica qualities, all wrapped up in one delicious hybrid. Sunset Sherbert is another hybrid which shares similar roots (with Durban Poison and OG Kush in the mix).
As with all Paradise twists on an original strain, this one benefits from some development in the in-house breeding program to produce a plant with enhanced taste and extra kick to the potency which cannabis growers will appreciate.
Flowering is accompanied by an exquisite aroma of great complexity underpinned by tones of citrus, berry and lavender.
Once dried, the buds exude an exquisite distinctive aroma that comes with the lavender element pushed to the foreground, deliciously blended with fruity notes of orange and raspberry, plus a bit of skunky piquancy.
The taste is a delightfully mixed palate too, delivering a hint of lavender that ushers in a fruity sweetness tinged with a hint of spiced skunk.
Difficulty Level: Easy – Medium
Indoors: Sunset Paradise will thrive in an indoor environment and is a superb fit for a smaller grow space thanks to its compact form, and should not exceed a meter in height. While most indicas display a bushy density, this plant shows its distinctive personality with more open growth with stalks and leaves flushing with the colors red and purple.
Outdoors: Outdoors, the more open growth pattern makes this strain a good choice for indica fans growing in more northern regions, while in warmer and sunnier zones it will naturally flourish. Cannabis growers will delight in the presentation of this plant and the all round robustness of its growth pattern.
The multiple calyxes of this plant produce thick flower clusters that quickly fill with rock hard big buds that are insanely rich in resin.
Oil production intensifies in the second period of flowering ensuring a rich shower of trichomes cover the buds with their intense orange pistils and shades of purple.
Indoor Yield: 450 g per m² Outdoor Yield: 1000 g per plant
Recreational: The Sunset Paradise effect is not one for the inexperienced user. It begins with an initial powerful wave of euphoria which is followed by an intense hit of bodily relaxation. The Sunset effect is also notoriously long lasting in nature.
Medical: Sunset Paradise cannabis seeds are popular with medical users because the strength of its relaxation qualities is matched by a clarity which enables them to stay productive and focused.
Sunset Paradise cannabis seeds are suitable for growing outside between 50º n.L. and 50º s.L.. Plants will finish in early October outdoors (n.L.) and after 8 weeks indoors. Estimated yield is 400 g per m² indoors / 650 g per plant outdoors.
A Truly Paradisal Experience: Sunset Paradise
Sunset Paradise is Paradise Seeds’s version of the super popular Gelato. The result is a luxury scoop of Gelato with Thin Mint GSC and Sunset Sherbet in the genetic mix. It’s a refined blend of terpenes and meditative flow that will hit a note with medical users and those indica fans.
Germination and Vegetative State
Two Sunset Paradise feminized seeds were germinated in soil, with the seedlings breaking the surface in just 2.5 days. They exhibited robust growth in the veg stage displaying, unusually for an indica, quite a distinctive open growth pattern. Reaching the end of the veg stage, both plants stood at just 37 and 40 cm in height, with stalks and flowers showing shades of reds and blues.
Both plants continued to show great uniformity and significant stem elongation (again unusual for an indica) and after four weeks in flowering both plants had doubled in size – each to 80cm.
The color show, first noted in the veg stage, continued with dark shade leaves flushing green to purple-blue to violet. Adding to this color spectrum was an early build up of resin manifesting in a generous glistening of silvery white trichomes.
Flower formation was impressive with plenty of calyxes developing (with a high calyx to leaf ratio) in thick round clusters. Rock hard, fat buds displayed a massive injection of resin in the second half of the flowering period and spread out to the surrounding shade leaves.
Accompanying this spectacular resin festival was a bewitching sweetish floral scent that filled the grow room; its complexity boasted notes of citrus fruits, berrylicious sweetness, skunky spiciness and a dash of lavender. Final heights for the two Sunset Paradise plants at harvest (after exactly 8 weeks) were 84 and 89 cm.
The final yield of these plants (dried harvest) was a combined 225 g’s.
Smell and Smoke Report
Once dried, the buds exuded an exquisite distinctive aroma that came with the lavender element pushed to the foreground, deliciously blended with fruity notes of orange and raspberry, plus a bit of skunky piquancy.
To test the effect, half a gram of Sunset Paradise was rolled with a little tobacco. An initial slight lavender taste melted into a fruity sweetness (with a spicy hint of skunk) that tantalized the palate and lingered on the tongue.
Just one toke delivered a tingling sensation on the temples, the second started something brewing in the forehead and the third brought a rushing wave of euphoria. This was followed b a very physical body effect that relaxed tired limbs and a long lasting effect (over 2 hours).
Sunset Paradise is an indica dominant plant that brings calm and relaxation without taking you out of the game. Its unique color show and insane resin count is impressive, as is the dizzying combination of elements that makes up its scent. A stimulator for the taste buds and the appetite, the soothing happiness delivered by Sunset Paradise will win fans amongst medical and recreational users alike.
