The Gorilla Glue #4 strain (or GG4) from our Marijuana Dispensary is a sticky and delightful favorite among medical marijuana patients. Its high levels of THC, which have been measured towards 26%, and its high resistant to diseases makes Gorilla Glue #4 a favorite among growers and tokers alike.
Origin of Gorilla Glue
Gorilla Glue #1 has a parentage from two strains: Chem’s Sister and Chocolate Diesel. Gorilla Glue #4 goes one step further, however, as it has a third set up genes in the mix from the Sour Dubb strain.
To be convinced of its popularity, simply take a look at the awards it has won. Gorilla Glue #4 has come first in the 2014 Los Angeles Cannabis Cup as well as the Michigan Cannabis Cup in the same year. It even won the Jamaican World Cup by High Times.
Effects of Gorilla Glue #4
The number one attribute you will experience from this strain is total relaxation. After that, you can expect to feel a sense of happiness and euphoria, as well as a general sense of upliftedness. Users of Gorilla Glue #4 can expect to get the munchies after that (making it a great appetite stimulant).
Because Gorilla Glue is sedative in nature, it is a strain that is best enjoyed in the evening, when you won’t be driving a car or trying to check things off your to-do list for the rest of the day.
The possible adverse reactions to Gorilla Glue are merely annoying if they do occur, but it is still important to know what could happen. Dry mouth is the main effect, so keep a glass of water on hand when you begin to smoke. The same goes for your eyes: they could dry up, although this is less likely to occur than having dry mouth. Sometimes anxiety and paranoia can occur, although rarely. You may also occasionally experience dizziness. Users are especially susceptible to these negative reactions if they are not accustomed to consuming marijuana and/or if they have a large amount all at once.
Medical Uses of Gorilla Glue #4 Feminized Seed
Gorilla Glue marijuana, being a strong sedative, works wonders for easing pain or stress just before bed, allowing the user to get a good, health-inducing night of rest. It is strong enough to be highly effective against many types of pain, including chronic pain (such as chronic back pain), muscle spasms, migraines, cramps, joint aches and pains, and even gum disease.
Gorilla Glue has a similar effect on stress. In fact, its ability to relax the user makes it one of the most effective stress relievers out there. Depression, anxiety, and insomnia are common reasons for patients to use Gorilla Glue.
Gorilla Glue #4 has the added benefit of being helpful in cases of loss of appetite. Whether it is due to some kind of intense treatment (such as chemotherapy) that leads to nausea and lack of appetite, an eating disorder, or another reason you are having trouble eating.
Taste and Aroma of Gorilla Glue #4 Feminized Seed
Gorilla Glue #4 has a natural, piney scent to it. People also note the scent of a strong, black coffee, or a dark, sweet moss.
Most people find the taste of Gorilla Glue quite delicious, making it work quite well for edibles. Gorilla Glue #1 is the best choice for making edibles since Gorilla Glue #4 occasionally has an unpleasant undertone or aftertaste to it. Nonetheless, both are delicious with coffee, chocolate, and spice, adding in an earthy pine taste to round it off.
Growing Gorilla Glue
Gorilla Glue will flourish indoors, although it will also do fairly well outdoors, assuming the climate is right. It is an easy-to-grow plant, but for outdoor growing, you’ll need a warm temperature and a temperate climate.
If growing indoors, you can expect between 8 and 9 weeks for flowering, and a yield of 18 ounces of bud per square meter of plant. Gorilla Glue #4 should be allowed to flower for a couple weeks longer. On average it will yield around 21 ounces per plant.
