In-Depth Details: Gorilla Glue #4 Strain Profile
Gorilla Glue #4, Also known as Original Glue or simply Gorilla Glue is a 60/40 Indica-dominant hybrid made from a triple cross between Chem's Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. It was first propagated by the heads at GG Strains who have inspired many different Glue-related strains from breeders all over the world. This heavy hitter is a perfect choice for deep-seated physical relief, an uplifted state of mind, and a plethora of medical uses that make the strain ideal for just about anyone.
Gorilla Glue is best known for its extremely frosty appearance, allowing the strain to tip the scales in the potency category with THC levels ranging from 18% to as high as 32%. Each chunky rounded nug comes in a range of shades from forest to sage green with golden hues throughout. She throws amber to dark orange pistils and a ton of super resinous trichomes that make the strain one of the most popular choices available for making into concentrates.
Her appearance isn't the only place she shines, though. Gorilla Glue has an incredible mix of flavors and aromas thanks to the variety of strains that make up her lineage and thanks to the large percentages of b-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Limonene terpenes. On the nose, she takes on a Chemdawg-esque aroma of sharp chem and fuel notes. When the buds are agitated in a grinder, they take on a very pungent earthy aroma. Refined noses will also be able to detect hints of chocolate and a peppery spice. The flavor is largely similar, offering a pungent, earthy inhale, rich peppery smoke, and an aftertaste of chocolate and fuel.
Gorilla Glue's popularity has exploded for its effects too. This bud is truly a well-rounded smoke, offering excellent flavors, aromas, and effects. The first impression is that the strain is powerfully uplifting, though the high is more of a creeper. It starts out very lifted and euphoric and leaves you feeling completely relaxed and happy. The strain also has some light focusing properties which are great for getting your creative hustle on or for battling attention deficit disorders. After the mental effects leave you feeling happy and relaxed, the physical effects take hold of your limbs leaving you feeling a deep sense of full-body relaxation that is likely to cause couch-lock and a good night's sleep.
The effects are both heavy and long-lasting, making it a great choice for the management of a variety of medical ills and ailments such as ADD/ADHD, bipolar disorder, chronic pain, depression, insomnia, lack of appetite or nausea, headaches and migraines, and chronic stress. The only thing to look out for is that the strain is likely to cause dry eyes and cottonmouth or severe couch-lock in higher doses.
All in all, Gorilla Glue is an extremely popular choice for late afternoon and evening relief from a variety of symptoms. The strain has an extremely unique scent and flavor as well as some seriously unmatched potency levels that make this strain a powerful cannabis medicine.
The Epic Remedy's Gorilla Glue #4 Strain Review
Gorilla Glue is a classic. It's become a superstar strain, gracing medical and recreational shelves all over Colorado. My first impression of it was awe of after I grabbed a 1/8th from the dispensary and took it home to photograph it for reviewing purposes. When I had the chance to really look at the flowers, I noticed that these puppies were incredibly frosty. The trichome blanket on these flowers was so dense that every time I handled them they left a sticky layer of trichomes on my fingers and at the bottom of the bag.
Once pictures were taken, I headed to the garage to sample the buds. I sniffed the bag deeply and discovered a spicy, fuel-like aroma that was ultimately very unique and inviting. I always run my buds through the grinder to get the best impression of the terps and when I opened mine up I was hit with a unique herbal funk with dank sour citrus notes that left my mouth watering. The flavor was very similar, though it was a lot more earthy and refreshing on the inhale. The smoke itself contained a lot of that peppery flavor and spicy diesel-like kick, though it was also creamy and refreshingly chocolatey. The aftertaste was also fuel-tinged, though chocolatey and citrusy, with woody notes and a unique spice.
The effects of Gorilla Glue took hold in me practically immediately, replacing all of my thoughts with a deep sense of relaxed euphoria that left me feeling happy and giggly but also quite physically relaxed and hungry. Smoking it literally made my brain do a ">Windows Task Manager> End All Tasks" . All of the various things I did today were marked complete by the administrator, and I had myself a SIT and a CHILL.
My biggest impression of the strain is that it's definitely one of the top choices for medical marijuana since it comfortably soothes and relaxes the body while also leaving the mind feeling quietly joyful, happy, and relaxed. It's also extremely potent and soothing in the body, and it can be felt in all of your limbs and appendages and muscles. The strain is excellent for managing pain and for finding a happy, focused headspace to go about your afternoon stress and pain-free.
I reckon, TLDR; Gorilla Glue offers extremely high levels of THC, a great mix of effects perfect for medical patients, and some of the most unique scents and flavors you can find in cannabis. This indica-dominant hybrid is best for afternoon/nighttime use and offers a peaceful, happy, and relaxed state of mind along with a deeply relieving body buzz that reduces even the most troublesome aches and pains. If you haven't had the chance to try Gorilla Glue yet, you can find it at any of our three dispensaries in Colorado Springs.
