Quick Run Down on Gorilla Glue #4
Gorilla Glue #4, also known as Original Glue was developed by GG Strains. A potent indica leaning hybrid strain that delivers heavy-handed euphoria and relaxation, leaving you feeling “glued” to the couch. The genetic makeup is a mix of Chocolate Diesel with Sour Dub and Chem Sister. The smell of diesel is strong but the taste is similar to coffee that has gone stale. Taking first place in both the Michigan and Los Angeles 2014 Cannabis Cups as well as the High Times Jamaican World Cup, this multiple award-winning strain is no longer a secret.

Although it is often classified as a balanced hybrid, you can get cuts that are either slightly indica- or sativa-dominant. The Gorilla Glue #4 strain is densely packed with trichomes and crystalline particles, with some leaves and hairs sticking out. This combination makes the buds appear as if they have received a light dusting of winter snow. Once you smoke some Gorilla Glue #4 your body is enveloped in relaxation. You will find it incredibly hard to move. On the plus side, you will likely feel happiness and euphoria creeping in. It isn’t a ‘laugh out loud’ sensation; simply inner contentment that allows you to unwind. It can help with reducing chronic pain such as arthritis and chronic back pain. It is also used for the treatment of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
Gorilla Glue #4’s aroma is pungent and skunky, transporting you to the scents of an indoor cannabis farm. Its chunky, resin-covered buds fill the room with earthy and sour aromas inherited from its parent strains. Its aroma also exudes hints of pine and other woodsy notes, making you feel like you’ve been caught in the middle of an Oregon forest. Additionally, you can expect top notes of chocolate and coffee, ensuring this cannabis strain is a delicious combination.
There are many twisted theories about where GG4 came from but who really cares? You can grow and utilize the powerful strain without necessarily going into the historical details. The unique background only adds to its glamour. Your Gorilla Glue #4 seeds can thrive indoors or outdoors. No matter where you cultivate your GG#4 crop, you’ll need more than a single pair of scissors during harvest time because the enormous amount of resin will clog up your cutting tools. Its rapid growth rate makes it an ideal candidate for the Screen of Green (SCROG) growing method. When grown indoors, Gorilla Glue #4 can yield an average of 18 ounces per square meter. This strain can typically take about 8-9 weeks to flower and be ready for a successful harvest.
