Elmer’s Glue

The Elmer’s Glue marijuana strain may have gotten its name due to the sticky trichome coating found on its buds, or perhaps it’s credited to its ability to get you stuck in whatever seat you got high in.

It is an evenly balanced hybrid strain that can deliver the best of both worlds with a strongly focused buzz and relaxing, body-calming high.

Is Elmer’s Glue strain indica or sativa?

Originally developed by the creative geniuses at Relentless Genetics, there is no question about the potency of Elmer’s Glue strain. Although, the evenly balanced effects of this strain have left many people wondering about Elmer’s Glue’s sativa-indica ratios. For the most part, Elmer’s glue weed strain is a 50/50 hybrid, displaying the best of both, although it may present a slight indica dominance from time to time. 


Using two highly powerful and well-known strains, The breeders at Relentless Genetics sought to create a strain that combines sheer power with delectable flavor. Using the mighty Gorilla Glue #4 (also known as GG4) for its powerful THC levels, They combined it with the ever-tasty and mysterious strain known as The White. The result is the flavorful genetic combination now fondly known as Elmer’s Glue strain.

  • 50% indica 50% sativa
  • Extreme THC levels of up to 26%
  • Easy to grow in and outdoors
  • Great relaxing, late-night high

Elmer’s Glue strain genetics come from the cream of the crop. Gorilla Glue #4 is a 50/50 hybrid that is known not only for its potent highs but as well as its earthy, pine flavor laced with strong elements of diesel. It’s the result of combining Chems Sister, Dour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel, making it one of the most well-known strains worldwide. 

The White on the other hand may be popular, but its origins are a mystery. Many suspects that this indica dominant strain is the offspring of a Purple Kush x Master Kush x OG Kush cross. This THC high strain is loaded with sweet, woody flavors and is well known for being a high yielder.

I could bet that most cannabis enthusiasts would be thrilled to grow their own private stock of this fine herb. Fortunately for them, Elmers’ Glue grows wonderfully and with ease in both indoor and outdoor environments. If you prefer starting from clones, that route is an option as this strain responds well to cloning; although Elmer’s Glue seeds are available, but can be tough to find. 

This strain embodies its name by producing incredibly sticky and tightly packed buds that are coated in an almost-white frosting of trichomes. The Elmers glue’s buds are rather small but densely packed and clustered together to form larger nuggets. These are nurtured by pale green sugar leaves entwined with faded amber pistils, all frosted in trichrome dusting. Being a short to medium size plant, you can expect it to grow around 2.5-5 feet indoors.    

Growing Elmer’s Glue outdoors

Fortunately, with parents as renowned as GG4 and The White, Elmer’s Glue strain information is widely accessible online, making cultivating all that much easier. And with a warm, sunny climate, Elmers’ Glue will successfully grow outdoors, reaching an average height of 5-6 feet. Remember to maintain regular pruning to increase ventilation and light exposure to lower buds. If you’re unsure about growing outdoors, Robert’s free Grow bible will be of great help!

Flowering time 

They say good things are worth waiting for and Elmer’s Glue strain is a testament to that with its slightly longer flowering time than many other Premo strains. Indoor growers can expect a flowering period of around 63-70 days, and outdoor growers can get excited about harvest in mid-October

How much does Elmer’s Glue yield?

One look at Elmer’s Glue strain info and two things are clear: one, Elmer’s Glue may not have the largest yields. And two, for its small stature, it’s got some impressive yields. These little bushes work themselves day and night to show that they’ve got what it takes, and the result is a reasonable 1-2 oz/ft2 indoors and 15-20 oz/plant for outdoor operations. Not bad for a stocky bush. 


Alright, first things first, we have to establish that Elmer’s Glue strain effects are far stronger than your granddaddies weed. This is like the ghost pepper of cannabis, and if you are sensitive to THC, you may want to consider something milder. Its slow high come-on has dubbed it as a “creeper,” fully setting in after a 10-15 min delay. Though when it starts,  it kicks in with an energizing cerebral buzz, spurring on focus, happiness, arousal, and the good ol’ giggles. 

The comedown can be mildly lethargic and sedating, depending on your tolerance and consumption. You may possibly find yourself glued to your seat, with little will or desire to move, so bear this in mind if you opt for using Elmers Glue in social settings. Getting high is great, but falling asleep at a BBQ is not so cool, so start slow and establish your dosage.  

Many people stand by Elmer’s Glue strain medical uses and have found relief for a number of ailments such as stomach pain, headaches, stress, fatigue, arthritis, and nausea. As well as using it to help regulate blood pressure, appetite, and moods. As strong as Elmer’s Glue strain is, it may have adverse effects on people with heightened anxiety, possibly exasperating it. Consume with caution, especially if you’re new to cannabis, and be prepared to have dry mouth, eyes, and mad munchies.

Elmer’s Glue strain exudes a pungent scent with a thick, dank skunky aroma that’s sure to cling to the walls. The flavor is similar but only more layered with strong accents of pine, diesel, and sweet earthy tones that start out bold and only become more refined as you adjust to the taste. It smokes thick yet smooth with flavorful exhales where Campene and Caryophyllene terps are most prominent. Myrcene and Limonene are also among the dominant terpenes lending to the sweet, flavorful notes of Elmer’s Glue strain. 

How strong is Elmer’s Glue strain?

The buzz that Elmer’s Glue strain serves us is as strong as the bonding power of actual Elmer’s Glue. THC content averages 18%-24%, although it has been known to get as high as 28%.
