Had a long day and need to unwind? When you’re looking for a strain that will relax you and take away your worries, Locktite is a great choice. RedEyed Genetics did a fantastic job developing this strain, crossing Gorilla Glue #4 and Mt. Rainier for a 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid. While the name might make you think that it will glue you to the couch, it’s more likely that the strain is termed after its sticky appearance.
Locktite doesn’t mess around, with THC levels showing up quite consistently in the 22% to 23% range. Many users rave about the characteristics of the buds themselves, as nugs of Locktite are long and dense with an insane amount of crystal-like trichomes. The aroma isn’t so bad either, with a lemon-lime scent containing hints of earthy diesel. Smoking it garners roughly the same experience, with a sweet taste coming to your mouth before the sharp diesel hits you on exhale.
When it comes to the effects of this strain, relaxation is the name of the game. Locktite’s high will start with a nice head buzz that seems to wipe your mind clean and leave you feeling happy and comfortable. As you progress through the experience, sedation will slowly enter the rest of your body in a way that’s soothing yet still leaves you functional. Some users will experience couch-lock but it’s not a common trait associated with this strain.
Since it does such a great job of erasing stress and worry, Locktite is a perfect choice for medical patients who need a little break from their day to day struggles. Chronic pain, depression, headaches, and even insomnia can all be effectively treated by this particular choice. It’s normal to feel some food cravings during your Locktite high, so if you struggle with your appetite, this strain will be a welcome addition to your stash.
A pretty standard crop to grow, this strain can do well inside or outdoors and produces a medium to heavy sized haul. Flowering time can vary based on the conditions, but anywhere from 7 to 9 weeks is recommended. You’ll likely be amazed once you see this strain in its full glory, as it’s so laden with resin that it’s flat-out sticky.
Give Locktite a try the next time you want to relax to the fullest level possible. Friday night after a long week of work or even vacation time are great places to experience this strain, as well as any time you need to relieve pain. If you can handle the slight diesel taste, it’ll become a yummy strain that you’ll want to have on-hand.
I grabbed some of this off someone then decided to get my medical card. This strain is one of the heaviest couch locking strains I've ever experienced. With the original Gorilla Glue (phenotype #1 is the original) as a parent it's no surprise why this is such a potent strain. The other parent is Mt. Rainier. I hope Pennsylvanians get to soon experience the strain that started my medical marijuana journey! Tastes are heavy in citrus and diesel.
