The famous Gorilla Glue Strain is one of the most talked-about cannabis strains currently in circulation. Known for its extreme potency and recognizable flavor, it’s an in-demand strain in the United States.
Gorilla Glue gets its name from the couch-locking effect it has on you. Even the smallest hits or a smoker with an unusually high tolerance can experience a powerful, sedating high.
Gorilla Glue 4 is a version of Gorilla Glue, birthed from three equally impressive strains: Chem Sister, Sour Dubb and Chocolate Diesel. The strain exploded in popularity in the cannabis industry in 2013 and have not disappeared since, being a favorite among both recreational and medical users across the country. Gorilla Glue 4 even took two Cannabis Cup titles, among other accolades.
This is an easy-to-moderate strain to grow, perfect for growers with average experience to attempt. Gorilla Glue is best suited in warm, outdoor environments, but will also produce a slightly smaller yield indoors.
The flavor of Gorilla Glue #4 is most commonly defined as earthy, piney and sour. Because the THC content is so high in the strain, some describe the flavor as mellow and even indistinguishable from other strains. However, others swear there is bold, coffee-like or chocolate flavor to it, and others love the almost bitter, but not unpleasantly so, taste that wakes up the senses.
Side effects of Gorilla Glue #4 are, not surprisingly, extreme dry mouth and dry eyes. More so than with any other strain, monitor your water intake and keep eye drops on hand to combat these uncomfortable effects.
Flowering typically occurs at around eight to nine weeks of growth.
If you are a new smoker, take this one slowly, as its side effects can be overwhelming if you’re not familiar with the high — or even if you are!
The strain ran into some legal trouble, having the same name as a brand of, unsurprisingly, glue. Known for its extremely strong bonding properties, the sticky trichomes and resins produced by the cannabis are actually reflective of the glue itself. Unfortunately, the glue brand wasn’t so thrilled with the shared name situation, and now the official name of any version of Gorilla Glue is GG.
