Cannabis Strain Review: Dance With Dolato


Sometimes a strain’s history is a complete mystery, and that’s how it is with the Dolato strain. While everyone agrees that she’s a cross of Gelato #41 and Dosidos, no one knows who created her. However she came to be, it’s a closely guarded secret in the cannabis community.

It’s likely that the reason for all this hush-hush is that the Dolato strain came from the underground scene where farmers keep their mouths shut and let their weed do the talking. Imagine that in today’s media-thirsty cannabis culture where every new strain is splashed on The Gram like it’s the Holy Grail.

How times have changed.

So, where does that leave us with Dolato? Maybe the best way to get to know her is to go way back,  sit down with her parents, and ask them.

Dolato’s Lineage

Gelato #41 and Dosidos are both fire strains, so it’s no surprise their baby girl also brings the heat. 

Gelato #41

Gelato #41, crafted by the renowned Cookie Fam in California, is an indica-dominant hybrid marijuana strain born from the union of Sunset Sherbert and Thin Mint Cookies. This strain is celebrated for its high THC content, averaging around 23%, and a touch of CBG at 1%, offering a heavy, relaxing body high that doesn't compromise mental clarity. Its buds present a kaleidoscope of colors, from light green to purple, adorned with trichomes that exude a sweet and earthy aroma with hints of lavender and pine. The flavor profile is equally alluring, with notes of lavender, pepper, and berry.

Gelato #41 is known for inducing feelings of relaxation, euphoria, and creativity, making it a heavyweight contender for those in search of a new favorite. While it's particularly effective for managing anxiousness, stress, and depression, its potent effects are best suited for experienced consumers. This strain's heritage is a testament to its quality, combining the best traits of its parent strains to create a unique and powerful experience.




Do-Si-Dos, an indica-dominant hybrid marijuana strain, is a stunning combination of the cherished GSC (Girl Scout Cookies) phenotype and the robust Face Off OG. This strain is a feast for the senses with a THC content that typically reaches around 20% and a CBG level of 1%, ensuring a potent and deeply relaxing experience. Its aromatic profile is complex, with a bouquet of sweet, floral, and pungent scents, complemented by a taste palette that includes notes of flowers, pungency, and a hint of pepper.

The effects of Do-Si-Dos are largely calming, embodying the sedative qualities inherited from its Face Off OG lineage, while the GSC genetics contribute to the euphoric and soothing high. This makes Do-Si-Dos a popular choice for those seeking relief from anxiety and pain, as well as a serene escape and feeling stress freee for recreational users. The presence of limonene as the dominant terpene adds to its distinctive aroma and therapeutic potential, rounding out the rich genetic tapestry passed down from its illustrious parent strains.

The Dolato Strain Experience

While we may never know Dolato’s breeder, we still learned enough from her parents to get a very good idea of who she is. Her Gelato #41 lineage has Thin Mint Cookies genetics, and her Dosido parent has GSC Genetics. So, Delato is most closely related to the notorious Cookies genetic lineage. Thank you, Cookie Fam. 

Fletcher Watson of Archive Seed Bank also gets props for creating Dosidos. Gracias, amigo.

Bag Appeal

Dolato gets her good looks from her Cookie parents and she’s a real stunner. Her perfectly conical flowers are tight, dense, and a brilliant olive and fern green that fades to lush purples when she’s finished properly.  The strain has rich violet undertones almost like purple velvet with sun bright orange pistils or hairs throughout the hybrid strain bud.

Orange hairs snake through her flowers, adding depth and contrast. Covering it all are heavy, crystalline trichomes that give Dolato her signature frosty shine, and make her colors that much more vibrant. 

Nose and Flavor

Pop the top off a fresh jar of Dolato and you’ll smell notes of pine, citrus, earth, and spice with sweet undertones. Dolato always hits smooth and her smoke leans floral, evoking lavender. 

Overall, Dolato is more subtle than overpowering. She’s for the true connoisseur looking for an experience that hits every key in just the right tone.

The High

There’s a very fine line between chill and couch lock, but Dolato walks it perfectly with a relaxing high. Her head high is happy and you will feel euphoric, and her body high is relaxing without the heavy sedation so many Indica’s are known for. 

If you’re looking to feel good and unwind after a long day without getting stuck to the couch, Dolato is the perfect strain.

Side Effects

While Dolato is a powerful indica dominant hybrid strain, she doesn’t have many side effects, and the ones she does have are mild. Some users report:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dry Eyes
  • Dizziness
  • Increased Appetite
  • Panic Attacks

    It’s worth noting that panic attacks associated with cannabis use are typically the result of ingesting too much THC. Dolato is gentle, but she’s still a high THC cultivar. So, be patient and careful with her.

    Medical Use

    Dolato cannabis strain is loved by medical patients because she provides the relief Indicas are known for without the couch lock. She’s often used by medical patients to treat the following conditions:

    • Chronic pain

    • Inflammation

    • Stress

    • Anxiety

    • Loss of Appetite

    Dominant Cannabinoids

    Dolato’s effects are, in part, caused by her cannabinoid profile:

    • THC: May be responsible for the /psychoactive effects of cannabis 

    • CBD: May treat inflammation and anxiety

    • CBC: May help with neurogenesis

    • CBG: May relieve nausea

    • CBN: May relieve insomnia

    • THCV :May Improve focus

    Dominant Terpenes

    We know terpenes affect the taste and smell of cannabis. But beyond that, research is beginning to establish that terpenes also play a role in the effects of cannabis. Dolato’s dominant terpenes include:

    - Bisabolol: Known for its potential anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties, bisabolol also imparts a delicately sweet and floral aroma reminiscent of chamomile, with subtle hints of spice and citrus. It's a common component in fragrances and cosmetics due to its gentle, soothing scent and skin-healing properties.

    - Limonene: This terpene may help relieve stress and improve mood, and is notable for its vibrant citrus aroma. Found in fruit rinds, limonene offers zesty flavors of lemon and orange, making it a refreshing presence in many cannabis strains that can also aid digestion and boast anti-fungal benefits.

    - Caryophyllene: With potential therapeutic uses in preventing osteoporosis and treating seizures, caryophyllene is distinctive for its spicy, peppery notes. It's a terpene that contributes to the warm, woody, and spicy elements of a strain's flavor profile and is also found in black pepper, cloves, and cinnamon.

    - Terpineol: This terpene may reduce pain and brings with it a nuanced palette of flavors and scents, often associated with lilacs and flower blossoms, combined with hints of apple and earth. Its calming, sedative effects are complemented by its pleasant, often piney aroma.

    - Pinene: Known to potentially treat asthma, pinene is the terpene responsible for the fresh pine scent in many cannabis strains. It offers flavors of pine and fir, and its aroma can be reminiscent of a forest, which can also aid in alertness and memory retention.

    - Myrcene: This terpene may act as a sedative and anti-inflammatory. It is the most prevalent terpene in most cannabis strains and contributes earthy, musky notes that are similar to cloves. Its scent is also found in mangoes, lemongrass, and thyme, and it's known for enhancing the 'entourage effect' in cannabis, potentially increasing the overall effects of other terpenes and cannabinoids.

    Growing Information

    Dolato grows like a classic Indica marijuana strain— short, bushy, and dense. Experienced cultivators prune her a bit to open her up.  Further, a little defoliation at week 4 and week 6  may be needed to increase the exposure to air and light in the middle and lower secretions of the plant that tend to get congested and shaded as she fills out.

    Dolato buds can be grown indoors or outdoors. Her yields are average to slightly below average, but she’s more resistant to disease and pests which may make her attractive for outdoor cultivators. She prefers a warm environment between 76-78 degrees, but dropping temps to the low 60s in the last two weeks will bring out her colors and improve her flower density. 

    Dolato takes about 8-9 weeks to flower.
