We invite you to discover the Seeds66 version of Gorilla Glue # 4, which are now available in our catalog as feminized seeds.
General information about Gorilla Glue
Gorilla Glue # 4 is currently one of the most sought after clones and this is hardly surprising since it is really a strain that stands out from the rest in terms of both cultivation and smoking.
Gorilla Glue, also known as Original Glue, is a cannabis strain highly praised for its psychoactive ability. It has an average THC content of 24 to 30%. However, some samples were measured with an incredible 32% THC. Gorilla Glue # 4 took first place in the Best Hybrid category at the 2014 Los Angeles Cannabis Cup and the Michigan Medical Cannabis Cup 2014, thereby consolidating its reputation among the cannabis community.
Originally from the cross between Chem Sister, Sour Dubb and Chocolate Diesel, the version published by Seeds66 was created from two hand-picked strains of Gorilla Glue # 4 that we got from America. In California, our gardener Harry Pale made it a wonderful feminized strain.
However, the outstanding feature of GG # 4 is its rich resin production, which cannot be compared to other varieties. A white trichome layer develops during flowering, making it ideal for resin extraction. Insanely high resin production, therefore suitable for concentrate extraction.
The growth of Gorilla Glue
The good news is that the Gorilla Glue # 4 is very sturdy and forgives many beginner mistakes that are common in plant care. When casting, follow the basic rules to avoid fatal mistakes.
Gorilla Glue # 4, which shows a slight indica dominance, is vigorous in growth, so that a vegetation period of 3-4 weeks is usually sufficient for indoor growth. The plants will produce many secondary branches, a characteristic that makes them very good for growth in the SCROG technique to maximize yields. It tolerates fertilization well.
Flowering is quick and takes between 8 and 9 weeks to achieve a very heavy harvest, which can reach 600 g per m2 indoors. Despite its dense buds, the Gorilla Glue has no mold problems and is quite resistant to fungal attack.
Also pay attention to a balanced ratio of heat and humidity. During the flowering period, the temperature should be between 20 and 26 ° C, while the relative humidity must be between 40% and 50%. Equip the growth area with a powerful activated carbon filter, as this variety has an overwhelming fragrance.
Alternatively, Gorilla Glue # 4 can also be grown outdoors. In Europe, this variety is ready for harvest by mid-October at the latest.
Smell and taste of the Gorilla Glue
If you smoke or vape Gorilla Glue, you can enjoy the delicious, earthy taste with tones of chocolate. It also has light metallic notes and a hint of kerosene.
The effect of Gorilla Glue
A single hit of Gorilla Glue # 4 delivers a euphoric "head high" that eliminates negative thoughts and other stress factors. Almost instantly, every dark thought is replaced by intense happiness, so that the mind hovers in a happy state. Immediately afterwards there is a soothing physical high. After a while the relaxing feeling becomes stronger, but never paralyzing. Therefore, effortless activities are feasible, albeit a little slower.
Gorilla Glue offers a powerful mental high along with an equally strong "stoned feeling" that lasts for a few hours. It is best to consume this variety in the early evening or when you have enough time. Providing a couple of snacks isn't the worst idea either.
The medicinal properties of the Gorilla Glue
With its THC content reaching up to 28% and sometimes exceeding the 30% limit, Gorilla Glue # 4 is a high quality medical strain. It also contains large amounts of therapeutic terpenes such as limonene, pinene, myrcene and linalool, all of which have a medical function similar to THC.
The high THC content naturally also has an anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. These two features help alleviate pain caused by conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines, atherosclerosis and multiple sclerosis. It also helps with eating disorders, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting caused by various diseases.
