Gorilla Cookies strain

When mentioning Gorilla Cookies strain, it’s easy to get confused with the famous 80’s hardcore band, The Gorilla Biscuits, because, frankly, they are both brutally hardcore. 

The similarities end there, though. Gorilla Cookies strain is what happens when you combine two legendary heavy-hitters, namely Thin Mint GSC and the infamous Gorilla Glue #4

Elev8 Seeds were the masterminds behind that union, and we can’t thank them enough.

The fruit of this tree is a sight to behold, and, gauging by its appearance, it’s pretty evident that this pot’s about to rock your socks. 

Gorilla Cookies weed produces uber-dense, small-sized buds with a thick powdered layer of trichomes, giving it a pale green complexion (and a hardness compared to its fluffy cannabis counterparts). 

Gorilla Cookies genetics

People have often referred to Gorilla Cookies strain as Gorilla Glue cookies, which is an easy mistake to make, considering it’s the offspring of Gorilla Glue #4 and Thin Mint GSC (girl scout cookies). 

Gorilla Glue #4 has developed such a popular following; it’s easy to see why people like this new strain developed by Elev8 Seeds.

They clearly know what they’re doing because they are doing it so right.

Aroma & Flavor

The best word to describe the scent of Gorilla Cookies would have to be “pungent.” 

We may throw that word around from time to time, but this bud has some serious stank to it, in a good way, though. 

It’s not all just lingering skunk and dank, but instead a layered aroma. It honors its genetics with a refreshing mintiness mixed with sweet pine and a sprinkle of nuts.

The Gorilla Cookies inherits its flavor from Thin Mints GSC, with the taste of mint taking the forefront. 

The flavor amalgamates with layers of sweet pine, earthy nut, and just a touch of spice
