Gorilla Glue #4, is an evenly balanced hybrid (50% indica/50% sativa) strain created through crossing the classic Chocolate Diesel X Sour Diesel strains.
This bud packs a crazy powerful high that leaves you feeling like your mind is filled with glue, all fueled by an insanely potent 20-24% average THC level. The high starts with a cerebral rush that leaves you feeling happy yet totally hazy, with no hope of focusing on anything any time soon. As your head high build and builds, your body will be washed over with a deep body buzz, leaving you feeling completely stoned and immovable. These effects last for hours on end and often end in a deep sleep for the lesser experienced.

Gorilla Glue a special strain
From its taste and aroma to its exceptional ability to get you glued to your couch, this strain has done it all. It was named Gorilla Glue mainly because it grew monstrously sticky resinous buds.
Gorilla Glue is not only is it dank and sticky, but it also delivers a powerful high that makes you go back for more. Potent cannabis strains are a plus, but it’s even better if you have a high-yielding potent strain. A complete win-win!
The history of Gorilla Glue #4
Gorilla Glue #4 (GG4) has no doubt gained a solid reputation. The history of this plant isn’t all that mysterious, but it has managed to steal its place in the hearts of many growers.
It all started a few years ago when Saint Joesy Whales planted a few cannabis plants together. His chosen strains were Chem Sis and Sour Dub. Both strains are super powerful, but things were probably not working as Saint Joesy had planned.
As the Illustrious One tended to the plants, he noticed that his Chem Sis plant had turned into a hermaphrodite. This is the last thing any grower or breeder wants. After all the research and hard work, it’s disconcerting to see plants go to waste. Most growers prefer seedless cannabis because marijuana reduces its potency drastically once it begins producing seeds.
Saint Joesy’s Chem Sis had not only hermied, but it had pollinated the Sour Dub as well. Bummer! Nobody wants to smoke cannabis that’s filled with seeds because it’s pretty much useless. You can only imagine the frustration because breeders put in a lot of time and effort to create jaw-dropping strains.
Joesy was so disappointed that he threw everything in the discount section of the Booty Shack. Fortunately, his friend, Mad Dogg, stached some of the seeds from this bargain. The following spring, he planted the seeds in the corner of his corn field and the result produced four phenotypes of Gorilla Glue. The plants were named #1, #2, #3, and #4, but #3 didn’t quite make it (probably a rabbit was using it for daily wake and bake).
After testing the phenotypes, the chosen one was…any guesses?! Yep, it was Gorilla Glue #4. She wasn’t just some regular cannabis plant, but she was actually a strain with mind-blowing genetics. GG4 went on to win too many cups, and thus become very popular.
The history of Gorilla Glue
After GG4 won several awards including the Best Hybrid at Michigan HighTimes and SoCal in 2014, we were fortunate to try the original strain.
Combined with its genetics and ability to grow large, GG is one of the best strains in our seed library. It’s a joy to watch this plant grow as she begins loading trichomes at the final stages of flowering. And the best part is that you only need to wait about two and a half months to harvest her.
The effects of Gorilla Glue
A combination of Sativa and Indica, GG is perfect for night time. Sure, you’re going to be glued to the couch but you’ll also feel the effects of the Sativa. It starts with a mild buzz at first, but it later develops into euphoric sensations. As the THC interacts with the chemicals in your brain, you will feel the effects enveloping you like a warm blanket on a cold winter night.
The taste is brilliant with a delicate combination of citrus and pine notes. You can recognize this girl from afar mainly because of her beautiful aroma. The aftertaste is a strong diesel since the strain contains terpenes that add more to the flavor.
How to grow Gorilla Glue
Most growers love cultivating this plant because it’s so simple and easy to grow. The only thing you need to remember is to provide proper containers that can accommodate its huge size.
When growing outdoors, the containers should be at least 11-13 gallons or 50 liters in size. If growing indoors, use slightly smaller containers. Make sure that the pot drains well or you’ll end up with root rot. And, this rule applies to every other plant you grow.
Since GG grows into a huge plant, you need to fertilize well from the very beginning. Organic soil will also do. No matter what medium you use to grow, she will pack a lot of flowers. This strain is also hungry for light, so make sure that you have powerful lights to achieve bigger yields. You can also employ training techniques like LST, Topping, and FIMming to encourage the plant to produce bigger buds.
As the plant grows a bit and proceeds to the flowering stage, within a few weeks, the leaves and trichomes burst into several colors that range from blue to silver. The plant is literally covered with so much resin that it looks like it’s covered with a generous amount of snow.
GG achieves a percentage of THC that’s higher than most strains. Its potency is perfect for patients looking to receive help with several illnesses including Asthma, Epilepsy, Herpes, Arthritis, Rheumatism, and a lot more.
