Gorilla Glue #4
About Gorilla Glue #4
History & Genetics
Gorilla Glue #4 (also known as GG4) created by GG strains is a Sativa-dominant hybrid, a multiple award-winning strain, famous for its high THC content. This strain gets its gluey name thanks to the resin that collects on the scissors when trimming. Gorilla Glue #4 has several parents due to extensive backcrossing – Sour Diesel, Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister, and Chocolate Diesel.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
The hybrid strain has won awards at the 2014 Cannabis Cup in both Los Angeles and Michigan. It has been described as a bunch of trichomes with a few buds, leaves, and stalks sticking out.
The aroma is very strong and is mostly diesel with notes of chocolate and coffee, although sweet and earthy is also used to describe it. You’ll be going back for seconds due to the full-bodied and flavorful smoke. The buds are green with orange hairs. It is very dense, spongy, resinous, and covered in trichomes.
GG4 averages 18 to 25% THC, but you may find it as high as 32% at some dispensaries. The CBD is very low, ranging between 0.05 and 0.1 percent.
Gorilla Glue #4 makes you chill, medical and recreational users, both. It gives a full body melt, despite the sativa-dominance. The body effect may be a result of the THC/CBD ratio, the terpene profile, and/or the synergistic effects of the cannabinoids. Along with the body buzz, expect uplifting, cerebral effects. Not exactly a strain to use in the morning, Gorilla Glue #4 is more suited to a day off from work or to end the day.
Recreational users will find that the buzz goes straight to the head. The effect is heavy-handed as this is a couch-locking strain. You will feel the effect immediately and it will “glue” you to the couch and deliver relaxation and euphoria.
With low CBD, Gorilla Glue #4 is not for serious medical conditions such as seizures, cancer, and central nervous disorders. It is good for mild and moderate conditions such as headache and insomnia. The indica provides sedating effects for painful disorders like arthritis and slipped discs.
This strain has a reputation for being able to treat disorders that are more mental in origin such as stress, anxiety, and depression. In particular, people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) have made Gorilla Glue #4 their go-to girl.
Gorilla Glue #4 came into being due to the accidental pollination of a hermaphrodite and therefore, growers advise that even if you get feminized seeds, you should check each plant for pollen sacs in the flowering stage. That said, it's a relatively easy strain to grow.
This strain flowers in 8-9 weeks and the yield is pretty hefty, whether you're growing indoors or outdoors. It's a pretty thirsty plant so make sure to stay on top of your watering schedule, without overdoing it.
When you get a good cut of GG it is godly. So so resinous, one of those that's almost impossible to completely break down with your fingers. Glues have easily been one of my consistent favorites over the years. Interesting that it has so much sativa heritage yet it knocks me on my ass every time. Perfect for after work or a day off.
For me PERSONALLY I was disappointed w/this strain & it wasn't that I had a poorly grown batch cuz I've tried 3 different batches from 3 different growers all top shelf quality, lowest THC of the 3 was 23.87% & the highest was 27.73%,so it's clearly The strain I don't dig & I'm pretty sure this is for a few different reasons. Number 1 was I saw it's lineage & parents & I'm a HUUUGE sativa lover (only the ones that are uplifting, energetic,get rid of depression,& give u the happy giggles)& LITERALLY EVERY parent strain in this strains lineage is 1 of those types of sativa's so I was expecting a sativa type effect more energetic & more uploading than Green Crack x Maui Wowie, sadly I got a boring couch lock high & it made me cry like WTF?
I was so excited for my little gg auto baby. But I must have missed a banana because she went and got knocked up… also knocking her sisters up along the way. On week 13 and it’s piddly small but ready, with teeny weeny little immature seeds. It’s just happened because my photos had been harvested a couple of weeks ago. And have 0 seeds. I’m not going to tell you the weight because even wet it was embarrassing. I didn’t know that Hermies could happen late in flower. I know now! Haha naughty bananas , I’ll try again next year maybe
Very helpful to PTSD and anxiety. I got a little paranoid though,but havent felt so good in years. Cleared my mind. The high started slowly. Really helps you deal with life. Didnt get munchies, didnt sleep that night but in the morning, after slept like 4 hours felt relaxed. Its very high THC so I think its not the best first strain, Ive been smoking since the 90's.
I'm a 71 year old hippie from the 60's and we were all potheads back then, all stoned most of the day. GG4 is a new strain for me. All that I can say is DAMN, MAN ... dis shit be blowing my mind in a very amazing and wonderful way...after only two tokes. LOVE IT!!!
