Gorilla Glue strain, also called Gorilla Glue #4 or GG4, was created by mistake of the breeder. Joesy Whales threw out a batch of seeds at first because it wasn't quite the result he wanted. However, this hybrid is a cross between many buds, including Sour Diesel, Sour Dubb, Chem's Sister, and Chocolate Diesel. This marijuana also won different Cannabis Cup awards in Los Angeles, Michigan, Colorado and even World Cannabis Cup in 2015. The ratio of Indica to Sativa is 60/40.

Terpenes and Taste

This weed is dominated by Sabinene, Limonene, and Phellandrene. Tokers also noted the following tastes:

  • Chemical
  • Chocolate
  • Coffee
  • Sour
  • Sweet

Its aroma is quite similar to its taste. The flavor is a blend of strong diesel with hints of coffee and chocolate.

Medical Benefits, Potency and Effects of GG4

THC is quite powerful and, on average, accounts for 22 to 26% of the content. The high starts quickly and has immediate relaxing effects. Moreover, it acts on thought processes, simplifying complex tasks. Improving mood and creativity are also included in the list of main effects. However, smokers also report side effects such as anxiety, headaches, dry mouth. Medicine uses Gorilla Glue strain to relieve symptoms:

  • Chronic Pain
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Nausea

Due to its popularity, GG is present in almost all dispensaries.

even though it is a hybrid, I smoke it only before bedtime, it helps me fall asleep, I don't feel any energy effect from GG at all

this is an excellent hybrid that compares to Girl Scout Cookies in terms of effects. It is a moderate strain that is most suitable for mid to late afternoon uses. It has a great taste and unique smell. It is by far my favorite strain.

It’s a good high besides the headache. But it relaxed me when I got off work

perfectly balanced hybrid - good high without over-stimulation, probably because its indica-prevaling

Nice hybrid, highly noticeable its indica dominant. Good choice for the night smoke cause it provides SUPREME relaxation and goddamn it makes me almost immovable. I dont mind since it works like an insomnia pill for me.

I love this strain! It’s so relaxing and allows you to just chill on the couch while binge watching Netflix.

wonderful, top-shelf, deep, and pleasant high. It has a strong mental delay but you can still focus though in a trance kind of way. This stuff is extremely potent, so I advise that you take it when you have completed all the days task.

I absolutely love GG. It has a unique way of channeling my energy and helps me get very creative. Particularly like its taste and the creativity bit, but the high can be a bit overwhelming. If you can handle it then it is the real deal, but smoke with caution.

GG is an excellent classic strain. I don’t understand why Allbud describes the taste as being incredibly harsh. I find it to be flavorful. However, it is not for beginners and those with low tolerance. I find it useful for PTSD and muscle pain.

epic! Gorilla Glue lives up to the hype. It gets you higher than Girl Scout Cookies. Although a Sativa dominant hybrid, its effects feel more like an Indica especially when taken in large doses. You will feel happy and euphoric at first before getting Stoney and sedated.

did taste and smell a bit like glue. I love bongs usually, but I tried this as a joint. Definitely one of my new favorites. I use it at night to relax and go to sleep, goes great with insomnia.

Very pleasant high right off. My current fav is Gelato, and it is not as good, but still recommend this weed. Flavor is not particularly pungent, but vaping is best if you just want to get relaxed. Its a good choice to let some steam off.

I saw a review on leafly mentioning that its good both flower and vape, but I must say that the bowl I had was by far superior. Uplifting & relaxing, washed my back pain right off. This kinda reminds me of Zookies, to be honest. Its great for all day use
