White Gorilla produces eye-catching buds. It has thick trichomes that cover the strain in an albino coat. It also sports colorful hues that enhance its overall appearance. But, more than its looks, the slightly Indica leaning strain draws attention for its impressive high.

It has potent THC levels of 24% to 25% that deliver a heavy-hitting buzz that settles into the limbs and lulls users to sleep. But, before anything else, it first improves the mood with a mild euphoric rush that leaves users giggling for the smallest reasons.

Greenlife, like in many of their strains, used White Fire Alien OG as a genetic base. It has impressive therapeutic quality that provides patients with a myriad of benefits. From it, White Gorilla gained its tranquilizing body buzz. For its heavy trichome production, the breeders turned to Gorilla Glue #4. Its name alone suggests it sticks to the palm of one’s hand and leave a residue when examined. The award-winning bud also delivers a soothing euphoria that contribute to its offspring’s sedating qualities.

Adverse reactions

Apart from the usual dryness in the eyes and the mouth, users may also experience a subtle feeling of paranoia and a disorienting dizziness that heightens levels of anxiety. Often, it is the result of using too much of the strain but one’s disposition before the high is a major factor as well. Starting with low dosages will keep the experience pleasant.

Outdoors, it will need protection against extreme weather such as snow or heavy rains. Both will not only stunt its growth, but it may also kill the plant overnight. A temporary enclosing is enough to protect it against harsh weather conditions, but one may also opt to plant it indoors.

Controllable environments allow aspiring growers to adjust factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity. For instance, during the flowering period, switching the lights out for higher-intensity models will encourage bud production. On the other hand, installing a proficient ventilation system will enhance air flow.

Growers can apply both the Sea and Screen of Green methods. The former requires cultivating at least four plants in a single square meter. It hastens the flowering period and maximizes space. Pruning is essential since the dense foliage can inhibit light and air around the growing room. For the latter, growers need to install a screen a few inches above of the current canopy then weave the branches into the net. This will even out the top so light reaches the lower nodes. Regardless of which method one uses, both will enhance yields.
