Every week we present a new cannabis strain review, which you can watch via the ISMOKE youtube channel.

To accompany the videos, I write a written strain review/smoke report for those who want a bit more detail on the strains I’m consuming and reviewing for this video series.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a completely new strain this week  – one which I hadn’t heard of, let alone tried. Dolato is a cross of Dosidos and Gelato, and with both parent strains from the cookies’ family, I was eager to try this cross.

Appearance

This is one of the most beautiful strains I’ve come across this year. I saw three phenotypes of this when I picked this one up, and this was the “purple pheno”.

Just look at those rich purple colours in the close-up…

The bud is frosty with tints of green, white and purple throughout. This Dolato cannabis sample is made up of small, dense nuggets.

Smell

I am disappointed with the smell of the Dolato, considering it’s appearance. While it smells clean, the smell is almost entirely lost.. I get hints of a subtle and delicate sweetness, but not much more.

Grinding up the dolato doesn’t create much more of a scent either. At a push, I’d say a slight pungency, but different to the traditional skunky smell.

Taste

Hitting the Dolato through my Weed Star Wasabi-line bong I immediately get a sense of how smooth this goes down – it’s very clean weed.

However, following in the footsteps of the smell, this strain’s taste is also lost on the hit – I struggled to define a distinct taste. Despite the lack of intensity on the hit, I can’t give this great marks for taste.

I also tested the Dolato cannabis strain through my Yoda water pipe, which I was hoping would give me more flavour. It didn’t, but the hit was pleasant.

Effects

The effects of the Dolato cannabis strain are on the indica-dominant side, I’d say. I got a slight relaxation but coupled with a slight cerebral nudge that reminded me I wasn’t sober.

This isn’t a particularly strong strain, and so one I’d think would be nice to consume during the daytime.

Overall

While I enjoyed the look of the Dolato more than most strains, I was disappointed with it overall, perhaps more so because I had such high expectations going in! I look forward to trying out other phenotypes to see whether I can get a better idea of the Dolato flavour.
