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.

Developed by GG Strains, Gorilla Glue #4 has become a sensation in its own right. It was created by mixing three potent parent strains, namely Chem’s Sister, Soud Dubb and Chocolate Diesel.

Gorilla Glue #4 has been awarded in a number of Cannabis Cups in 2014 but also in the High Times Jamaican World Cup and is widely touted as a supreme strain that every veteran smoker needs to have tried at least once in their lives.

Effects

Another way Gorilla Glue #4 has earned its name, is for the intense couch-lock it can cause someone to succumb to. What else do we expect from a strain so sticky and heavy, it can easily clump your fingers together when you manually try to break it up?

With its THC levels borderline through the roof, having clocked in at times at a record 30% in some dispensaries, Gorilla Glue #4 is nothing for the faint hearted. Bold in its cerebral effects, it induces a heavy head high with a potent push to relaxation. Also to be noted, are how long its effects can last – often leaving you in a hazy cerebral high for up to 4 hours.

Gorilla Glue instills a happy, giggly high with a sense of skin-tingling euphoria. It is uplifting while maintaining focus, and is a perfect strain for those days when you want to just chill out on the couch with your buddies and unwind.

Fragrance

Indulgent in its unique fragrance, you can smell that Gorilla Glue #4 means business like no other. It has a woody, pine-like aroma to it that borders on a hint of fresh sandalwood. What breaks up its pungent, mossy scent is that of a certain dark sweetness, much like berries and fresh wild cherries.

Flavors

Gorilla Glue #4 tastes much the way it smells. Its flavors are all about a dark woody aftertaste, mixed with a hint of earthy pine. It also has a hint of coffee and chocolate in it, breaking up the dark spicy accents with a hint of the fragrant sweetness. Sometimes, it can leave a slightly chemical aftertaste in your mouth due to its potency and high THC levels.

Adverse reactions

Quoted as causing a case of “head fry” in inexperienced smokers, Gorilla Glue can give you something to be paranoid about if you come unprepared. The body stone can be intense, which can cause mild cases of anxiety and nervousness in some. A prevalent headache might be present as an effect of the intense head high.

As is usual with many potent strains, one of the most strongly observed side effects caused by this Gorilla Glue #4 is a case of dry mouth and also dry eyes. This is because it can leave you feeling severely dehydrated, which can quickly be remedied by consuming a copious amount of liquids.

Medical

Another reason why it is a favorite of many, is because of Gorilla Glue #4’s ability to soothe so many ailments. Its potency guarantees for a solid pain relief that could be caused by many potentially complicated diseases such as muscle spasms, gum disease, chronic back pains and many others.

Gorilla Glue #4 is also a powerful stress-reliever and is therefore widely used in the treatment of depression and anxiety. It is helpful for those who seek a little help to initiate a restful night of sleep, and has therefore been successfully prescribed to combat disruptive bouts of insomnia.

For patients who suffer from a lack of appetite due to medication or chemotherapy and radiation treatments in the battle against cancer, can be prescribed Gorilla Glue #4. It can help them restore their appetite by eliminating the feeling of nausea.

Growing

Gorilla Glue is quite easily grown indoors but has proven to also flourish in sunny, warm outdoor settings. The plants produce much resin, so make sure you are prepared to unclog and sharpen your scissors during harvest! Gorilla Glue #4 yields quite generously, which makes it a win-win strain to grow, because it is also known for its absolute ease.

      GA, You won’t be able to finish a crop outdoors in Michigan planting now. You would not be able to finish before December at the earliest. GG probably takes 4-5 months from seed to harvest, Sorry 🙂
