Main Effects of Gorilla Kush Strain

With its balanced effects of energy and relaxation, this weed is a good daytime option. People who use it report feeling a wave of euphoria take over their minds and bodies, relaxing them and washing away their worries. This relaxation does not make them sedated, however. There is also a rise in creativity that can help do some important work. Be careful when smoking these buds before going to your work though as they can cause you to giggle a lot.

While it does not have a very low THC content, beginners who are more adventurous may try this cannabis. There are some side effects that can be experienced though, including paranoia, increased heart rate, and even hallucinations.

People who use marijuana for medicinal purposes report that Gorilla Kush weed strain can help alleviate symptoms related to anxiety, fatigue, inflammation, and Parkinson's Disease.

Terpene Profile and Flavors

This weed contains the following terpenes:

  • Myrcene
  • Limonene
  • Caryophyllene
  • Linalool

The resulting aroma and flavor of this strain are very pleasant. There are notes of citrus that are brought mainly by Limonene and Linalool. Limonene also brings some notes of sweet peaches that complement the citrus tones very well. Myrcene and Linalool introduce some undertones of sweet pears while Caryophyllene rounds off the sweetness with some bitterness of coffee.

The overall flavor profile is very enjoyable, even if you don't like to smoke the flower directly and rather want to use the strain's oil in some baked recipes.

Growing Review

Growing this plant yourself is not too difficult and can be done with moderate ease. The buds that are produced have purple hues that contrast with the forest green base. Some buds can prove to be a little too resinous, making them hard to break apart. The plant can get quite tall too, achieving a height of around 60-80inches. The flowering period for this strain is between 52 and 61 days after which you can expect a moderate yield.
