This beast of a strain is making a name for itself as one of the most potent hybrids on the market. With an average THC level of 25%, Gorilla Glue frequently hit the 30% mark when grown under the right conditions.
Heritage & Genetics: The notorious Gorilla Glue is an award-winning hybrid that has its roots in three different strains; Chem’s Sis, Chocolate Diesel, and Sour Dubble. Combining two heavy hitting sativas with an incredibly potent hybrid of a Sour Diesel sativa and a Sour Bubble indica – it’s not surprising that Gorilla Glue is such a notoriously strong strain.
Flavor & Aroma: Gorilla Glue leaves a complex mix of rich, dark flavors on the palate. Fragrant coffee and chocolate notes are laced with the heavier, chemical aroma of diesel fuel, while the earthy, pinewood undertones typical of a sativa linger in the background.
Effect: This hybrid strain packs an unmistakable head-spinning sativa punch. The effect is so heavy that the normally mind-activating and mentally energizing feeling is transformed into a sensation of cerebral-overload, more akin to that of a heavy-hitting indica couch-lock effect.
Medical: Gorilla Glue is an excellent and famed medicinal strain for pain management, due to its high THC level. Besides alleviating pain, this strain has been reported as an effective aid for alleviating stress and the symptoms of depression. Besides that, the high THC of this strain has also been suggested to work wonders as an anti-inflammatory.
Grow characteristics: Gorilla Glue is a fast-growing strain that performs well both indoors and outdoors, although the best results are obtained with a well-lit, indoor SCROG setup. During the flowering stage, there is a chance you will encounter pollen sacks because it appears Gorilla Glue has a hermaphrodite genome in its heritage. You’ll need to keep a watchful eye during this period and removes these sacks as you see them form. Topping and training during the early growing stages is also advised.
