  1. Out of 5 seeds I had one GG#1 plant and I wish I would’ve cloned it. It’s clearheaded and tranquil effects have me and my friend ripped. Definitely an end of the day toke. I will grow this strain again for sure!

  2. Gg1 is a very dependable smoke. Does the job even I short breaks in between. It’s strong and I’m a heavy user. It’s a fast grower. Good for concentrates. I’d give it an 7–8. That’s high on my chart. Well worth it.
