We spent a couple days with Mario Guzman, the man and mastermind behind Gelato.
“I call it tapping in,” Mr. Sherbinski declared as he lit a joint. “It’s the recognition of the universal energy that connects each and every living thing. The realization you’ve arrived at the place where cannabis takes us all.”
Mario Guzman, AKA Mr. Sherbinski, AKA the master cultivator behind some of the most revered cannabis genetics on the planet—that’s the person I wanted to know more about. Which is why I drove up from Los Angeles to San Francisco to spend a couple days with the legend himself. Sherbinski is known for his impeccable ability to pheno-hunt, that is, identify and isolate the most desirable traits of cannabis strains to make something altogether unique. That much is evidenced by his Bacio Gelato pre-rolls, which earned a perfect score from the Proper Cannabis Committee. This ability to craft truly memorable highs is also why he’s gained a sort of luminary status among growers. Put simply, Sherbinski has major pull within the cannabis community, and with his latest brand launch, he’s about to have major pull in the community at large.
