Gorilla Glue #4
Gorilla Glue #4 (also known as GG4) created by GG Strains is a sativa-dominant, award-winning hybrid known for its high THC content. It averages between 18 and 25 percent THC, although you can also find GG4 containing 32 percent in cannabis stores in the US. CBD levels are very low, ranging from 0.05 to 0.1 percent.
This strain got its name because of the resin that accumulates on the scissors during pruning. Gorilla Glue #4 has several parents due to extensive backcrossing - Sour Diesel, Sour Dubb, Chem's Sister and Chocolate Diesel.
This hybrid strain won awards at the 2014 Cannabis Cup in Los Angeles and Michigan, where it was described as very rich in trichomes.
GG4's aroma is very strong with a distinct diesel scent and notes of chocolate and coffee, although a sweet and earthy smell is also used to describe it. The tops are green with orange hairs. They are very dense, spongy, resinous and covered with trichomes.
Gorilla Glue # 4 makes you laid back, and consumers use it for both medicinal and recreational purposes. After consumption, you feel a full body melt, despite the sativa dominance. The effect may be due to the THC / CBD ratio, the terpene profile and/or the synergistic action of the cannabinoids. Along with a heavy body, you can expect euphoria and overall cerebral effects. Gorilla Glue 4 is not particularly recommended for use in the morning, it is more suited for a day off or at the end of the day.
Recreational users will find that the effect of GG4 is heavy, as it is a strain known for sticking the body to the couch. You will feel the effect that "sticks" you to the couch almost immediately and it provides relaxation and euphoria.
With a low concentration of CBD, Gorilla Glue #4 is not intended to treat serious conditions such as seizures, cancer and central nervous system disorders. It is good for mild to moderate conditions such as headache and insomnia. A small number of Indica genes provide a calming effect for painful conditions such as arthritis and back pain.
GG4 has a reputation for its ability to treat disorders of a more mental origin, such as stress, anxiety and depression. In particular, people with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have made GG4 their favorite.
Gorilla Glue #4 was created due to accidental hermaphrodite pollination, so breeders advise that even if you buy feminized seeds, you should check each plant for pollen bags during the flowering stage. This strain blooms in 8 weeks, and the yield is high.
