If you’re still not convinced why Gorilla Glue is one of the most talked-about strains these days, consider this: it has a THC content of 24-26%, with some of the phenos reaching as high as 30%. To say that the Gorilla is “powerful” would be an understatement of the century!
Gorilla Glue, also known as Original Glue and GG #4, is a popular hybrid strain recognized for its balanced indica and Sativa qualities. Gorilla Glue, a first-place winner at the 2014 Los Angeles Cannabis Cup and the High Times Jamaica World Cup, launched the GG “family” of certified sister strains like GG #1 or also known as Sister Glue and crosses such as GlueChee (GG #4 X Cheese). Let’s learn more about the strain in detail.
About Gorilla Glue Weed
Gorilla Glue, commonly known as Original Glue or GG4, is a powerful and well-known strain. It’s also the progenitor of several popular strains, including Zookies and Grease Monkey. Nonetheless, one thing is clear: this strain lives up to the hype, as seen by its numerous awards.
The output of a “throuple” is Gorilla Glue. Yes, the Sativa Chem’s Sister, the Sativa Chocolate Diesel and the hybrid Sour Dubb are the parents of GG #4. These three strains each provide their distinct aromas to Gorilla Glue, and their effects combine to create the ideal hybrid strain high.
People who want value for their money with high effects would love this strain as its high THC levels provide a very potent, instant and long-lasting high. New smokers should take it carefully with this strain, which can induce unpleasant side effects if consumed too much at once. At times, you would notice around 28% of THC in it which isn’t recommended in high amounts to beginners.
Flavour and Appearance
The name of this hybrid cannabis strain comes from the sticky, resin-coated buds it produces. Unsurprisingly, the moniker Gorilla Glue #4 has resulted in a protracted legal battle with the creators of Gorilla Glue (the adhesive), and Gorilla Glue #4 is now referred to as Original Glue.
The trichomes on this cannabis strain are crystalline, with amber hairs protruding conspicuously. It has puffy buds with a striking olive-green color. In addition, the Gorilla Glue weed has a powerful, pungent scent with a distinct, diesel-like flavor due to its resinous leaves. There are also hints of coffee, cocoa, and a spicy, earthy tone. It has a unique flavor described as sour and heavy on diesel.
Most of the cuts of Gorilla Glue have a potent, skunky fragrance with earthy tones — imagine Sour Diesel and some damp dirt. However, this can vary by genotype. The Sativa-dominant type (#4) may smell like pine forests while the indica-dominant strain (#1) may smell like bubblegum.
Effects of Gorilla Glue
Gorilla Glue is a Sativa-dominant hybrid created by GG strains. It has a high THC level (averaging 18-25%) and a very low CBD content (ranging between 0.05 to 0.1 percent). It’s available with THC levels as high as 32 percent in some dispensaries, which explains why the GG4 cannabis strain is so popular! Despite its high Sativa concentration, this cannabis strain does not make you feel energized or active.
On the other hand, Gorilla Glue is known for its couch-locking properties, which may keep you attached to a location for several hours while giving you a satisfied, mellow feeling. Some users report, Gorilla Glue’s effects are immediate, beginning with a high, euphoric surge. A buzz that permeates your senses is followed almost immediately by a deep sense of relaxation as the initial buzz fades.
