Hybrid – Gorilla Glue #4
Hybrid – Gorilla Glue #4 created by GG strains is a Sativa-dominant hybrid, a multiple award-winning strain, famous for its high THC content. It is one of the post popular strains on dispensary shelves this year. Don’t let the small buds fool you 🙂
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 trichromes 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 trichromes.
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.
It isn’t the best sleep aid but the racing effect some experience will ease into a general stoniness after an initial rush. The effect is typical of most OG varietals with an early onset of a euphoric rush and a gentle relaxation easing in there after for up to several hours.
Bred specifically for maximum THC, the flavor of Gorilla Glue can be a bit muted and indistinguishable from other strains. This isn’t to say that it tastes bad, but it certainly doesn’t have the diversified pallet many other strains have.
