Sherbinskis: The Origins Of Gelato Strains

You can thank Mr. Sherbinski for the industry's beloved gelato genetics.

There’s always a fascinating story behind legendary strains. When speaking about the renowned Gelato strain and its genetics, legendary is an understatement.

You’ve likely heard your favorite rappers spit bars about Gelato, and other cannabis connoisseurs rave about their experience with this sweet and creamy strain.

But where did it all begin? Who was the master grower behind such an iconic strain that’s used in different cross breeds today?

Before settling into his nickname as Mr. Sherbinski in the cannabis industry, Mario Guzman was a real estate broker.

Fast forward to today, Los Angeles-based Sherbinskis is practically running the North American cannabis space.

Launched in 2014, Sherbinskis is the brand of Mario Guzman. Interestingly, Guzman started his successful company in a similar way to other corporate giants like Apple and Amazon; in a garage.

He started cultivating cannabis after a friend thought it was a better time than ever, considering legalization was beginning to sweep different U.S. states.

Guzman’s garage grows didn’t start taking off until he met the master grower behind the Thin Mint Cookies strain, Jigga. Together, they co-created two of our industry’s most cherished strains, Gelato and Sunset Sherbert.

Now, Guzman’s Sherbinskis cannabis brand is not only the founder of world-famous Gelato strains, but is leaving a remarkable impact on the industry and consumers.
