Watermelon Gushers Strain Appearance
The appearance of the Watermelon Gushers strain might give insight into why it carries the name.
The voluminous and tightly-packed buds carry that green color that we all associate with weed, but with a twist.
With brightly-colored trichomes, purplish pink and orange shades stick out at first sight. Different hues of green contrast these colors, leading to an interesting mix of colors that look as delectable as it tastes and as the effects this strain provides.
Watermelon Gushers Strain Genetics
Just like you might have drawn up your family tree in school or even just for fun (hey, we all have different hobbies), you can do the same with weed.
When we look at Watermelon Gushers’ parents, they are none other than Cocomero Gelatti and Gushers (hence the back end of the name). These are both indica-dominant hybrids, with Cocomero Gelatti being another creation from Cannarado Genetics bred from Gelato and Biscotti.
However, there’s much more behind this strain that holds a bunch of rare kush genetics in its parentage.
If we keep going back, we find that a lot of Watermelon Gushers’ grandparents, great-grandparents, and grandpasaurus’s are Gelato. With so much Gelato genetics in the mix, it’s no surprise that some of the effects are similar to that strain, which we will get into later.
There are also a few crossovers of Sunset Sherbet and Thin Mint GSC, so it makes sense that there’s a tropical punch to Watermelon Gushers.
Watermelon Gushers can trace its heritage all over the country and the world: California, Florida, Pakistan, and South Africa.
Let’s get to the good stuff: the cannabinoid content of Watermelon Gushers.
Depending on the cultivation technique, Watermelon Gushers can contain anywhere from the high teens to the mid twenties in THC percentage, with some harvests having up to 30% THC.
Watermelon Gushers Strain Terpenes
The most dominant terpenes in Watermelon Gushers are limonene, caryophyllene, and humulene. All of these terpenes are also found in our own Mango Crush strain.
Limonene is abundant in nature as it is in the cannabis plant, especially in citrus fruit. While it acts as a natural protector against predators due to its strong citrusy scent, humans have not been deterred. This terpene has been shown to possibly help with inflammation and stress and serve as an antioxidant.
Caryophyllene is the essence of most spicy strains. This terpene is found in many aromatic and strong herbs, including black pepper, oregano, and basil. Additionally, it’s a major component in Watermelon Gushers. Caryophyllene has been found to potentially be pain-relieving.
Humulene is the third of the powerful three main terpenes in Watermelon Gushers. This terpene gives off a distinct woodsy and earthy scent with a hint of spice, found in many plants, but most famously also the main terpene in hops (a.k.a. beer!). It may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Watermelon Gushers Reported Flavors
