Gorilla Glue 4 has a rich terpene profile that gives it a unique taste and flavor. This is an easy to germinate and cultivate strain that produces impressive yields. Below is everything you need to know about Gorilla Glue 4 feminized seeds.
What is the origin and genetic composition of Gorilla Glue feminized seeds?
Gorilla Glue, commonly known as Original Glue, or Gorilla Glue #4, was developed through an accidental crossing of three strains; Chocolate Diesel, Chem’s Sister, and Sour Dubb. This multiple award-winning strain packs a massive 28% of THC and 0.1% CBD and is a hybrid of 63% Indica and 37% Sativa.
The strain grows up to 2 meters at maturity, which is a good balance for a hybrid. You can easily tell the strain from the small-round buds, which are olive green in color with purple hues. These buds are covered in a heavy coating of snow-white crystal trichomes, which make the strain highly resinous. The buds are sticky, so you may need the help of a grinder or a pair of scissors to break them apart.
What does consuming Gorilla Glue flowers feel like?
Immediately you take a few puffs of Gorilla Glue an instant hit of Sativa-induced effects sets in. Despite this being an Indica dominant strain, the effects appear balanced, making it an excellent therapeutic choice.
The effects are characterized by euphoria and good moods. The uplifting high ushers in an energetic high, which makes hard tasks seem easy to perform. These effects last for about an hour.
Once the Sativa effects wear out, a gradual calmness and relaxation build up. The Indica effects first affect the brain, but they get to the rest of the body with time. At this point, you get hazy, and the limbs start feeling numb and heavy for close to three hours.
Prepare some snacks beforehand since GG4 will cause deep hunger. This is an excellent evening or nighttime strain as it can help foster sleep as the effects wear off.
Can Gorilla Glue be used medically?
Yes. The balanced Indica-Sativa properties in the strain make the strain effective in managing anxiety disorders, including panic attacks. Gorilla Glue 4 also helps with mood disorders, depression, and PTSD. The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties make strain effective in relieving pain resulting from arthritis, neuropathy, back pain, menstrual cramps, fibromyalgia, and headaches.
What does the Gorilla Glue strain feel and smell like?
The aroma and flavor in Gorilla Glue are distinct and almost similar. The aroma of fresh buds can be described as a mix of piney and woody. When you combust the buds, they produce a heavy mossy aroma with sweet notes.
During inhalation, a strong aroma of coffee and chocolate, with dark spicy notes, hits your tongue as the smooth smoke flows down your throat. On exhalation, an aftertaste of earthy pine with dark woody remains on the tongue for hours.
How to cultivate Gorilla Glue feminized seeds
Gorilla Glue cannabis is relatively easy to cultivate, making it an ideal strain for novice cultivators. The strain is hardy and can yield optimally in indoor and outdoor setups. You should prune the side branches from time to time and apply nutrients appropriately at every growth stage to increase the yield and potency levels.
