Balanced Marijuana Hybrid Gorilla Glue

Gorilla Glue

I bet you’re wondering what we are go(rilla)-ing to talk about this week! Sorry that was probably the biggest stretch and worst joke I’ve made in this blog so far. Gorilla Glue was the first legal cannabis purchase I made in the United States in Washington back in 2016. We bought a quarter and spent a lot of the week smoking and checking out the Seattle area seeing if I felt like moving that way. This hybrid strain is quite the relaxer and can have you yawning after smoking enough of it, but won’t immediately glue you to anything like the name suggests. Gorilla Glue #4 is derived from Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel and was created by GG Strains completely accidentally when pollination occurred between plants that weren’t supposed to interact. This happy accident resulted in one of my favorite strains! I’ve tried several GG4 harvests over the years and love that this strain gets me as high as a hot-air-baboon!

You may find several different numbers when it comes to the different gorilla glue strains, and it all comes down to Gorilla Glue, the glue manufacturer, suing GG Strains for use of the Gorilla Glue name in 2017. Ultimately the adhesive company won which is where the names GG1, GG4, and GG5 come from though these strains are also known as New Glue, Original Glue, and Sister Glue. I was lucky enough to buy some before the name issues arose, but even with a new moniker this strain remains in my Top Ten. When GG Strains first developed GG4 they were just calling it “4” until one of the trimmers mentioned his fingers were stuck together like Gorilla Glue, and the name stuck. After the lawsuit we are left with the current GG4 name, although most still refer to the strain as Gorilla Glue. Due to all of the issues over who owns the phrase “Gorilla Glue” you can walk into a dispensary and see GG4 and Original Glue on the shelf at the same time depending on who the grower is.

GG4 tends to produce thick, chunky buds that are covered in trichomes and range from light to dark green. If you’re breaking it up with your fingers expect them to get all kinds of sticky icky! Expect a pungent aroma of earth, pine, and even hints of chocolate and diesel with the flavor leaning more on the earthy side with a tinge of diesel. I can smoke it all day without needing to take a nap, but will squeeze a nap in if I can find an excuse to take one. GG4 hits me a lot like Citral Glue in that I feel extremely relaxed but can still focus. The difference is GG4 does eventually make me sleepy while Citral Glue never does. I love GG4 on rainy days or long weekends when I can spend the day relaxing and enjoying some down time.

We’ve talked a little bit about the dominant terpenes in GG4 in older posts which are caryophyllene, myrcene, and limonene. While the dominant terpenes determine a lot of the aroma, taste,  and effects of a strain, the terpenes that only appear in trace amounts still help to produce the overall entourage effect of the strain. GG4 can also contain humulene, pinene, terpinolene, and linalool! Linalool is a flowery terpene that can be found in many strains of cannabis as well as lavender and over 200 other plants. Non-cannabis users are estimated to consume about 2 grams of linalool a year due to it being so common which makes me wonder how much someone like me takes in! Linalool has antimicrobial properties and is great for relieve anxiety and stress. No doubt this terpene will leave you feeling lina-cool as it melts away the stress of the day.

Joking and Toking:

I have several unfinished stories in notebooks around my house. I once actually finished writing a novel but accidentally glued myself to it before it could be published. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
