A notoriously sticky strain, Gorilla Glue #4 got its name from the fact that growers has a hard time trimming its buds, with the high resin content leading their scissors to stick together. Thus, this heavy-hitter of a strain was born. It is said to be sativa-dominant, although it is in fact more accurately an exact hybrid of both sativa and indica properties.
