Gorilla Glue, because it is today Gorilla Glue, because it will be discussed today is one of the most popular varieties of marijuana of the last decade. It gained extraordinary fame in the United States and thanks to globalization it quickly appeared in European coffeshops. It owes its popularity to the huge amount of resin produced with a high THC content, and to the powerful action that can "stick" the consumer to the couch for a long time, which is nicely associated with its name.
From failure to success.
The original version is called Gorilla Glue # 4 and it can be said that it was created by chance. It all took place on the plantation of the American breeder Joesy Whales. The Chem Sister variety growing in his field turned out to be a hermit and pollinated the Sour Dubb plants, turning the entire crop into worthless. Frustrated by this fact, Joesy hadn't even thought of blowing up, in his opinion, nothing worth a grain. It wasn't until a few years later that a friend of Whales decided to plant the resulting seeds, which turned out to be a good idea. From the seeds planted, healthy plants grew, of which the phenotype number 4 was distinguished, turned out to have phenomenal resin properties and holy quality. This is how Gorilla Glue # 4 also known as GG # 4 or Original Glue was created.
Legal turmoil with the name.
The breeders at GG Strain LLC have associated a large amount of sticky resin that sticks fingers and scissors together when clipping with the popular US brand of European droplet glue - Gorilla Glue. So they decided to give their variety this name. However, this move did not appeal to the owners of Gorilla Glue Co. They did not want their brand name to be associated with marijuana, so they filed a lawsuit against GG Strain LLC that forced them to rename the variety. From then on, they used the name GG (1-5) as there are currently 5 different varieties of Gorilla Glue.
Gorilla Glue # 4 or Original Glue is a hybrid of Sativa and Indica with a slight Indica dominance (63% Indica, 37% Sativa). This is an award-winning variety. She won first place at both the Cannabis Cup in Los Angeles and Michigan in 2014. She is also voted Best Variety at the High Times Jamaican World Cup that same year. GG # 4 is a cross between Chem Sister, Sour Dubb and Chocolate Diesel. The result of such a treatment is a short plant with a fairly slim structure and long, thin branches that require support during flowering so that they do not break due to the weight of the densely packed buds and densely covered with sticky resin. It is such a resinous variety that the normal view is melting or even fan blades, covered with large amounts of trichomes. The original Glue, due to its properties, is very efficient and eagerly used for extraction. It is said that the resin content in this plant can be as much as 1/3 of the weight of the whole herb. Growing Gorilla Glue # 4 does not cause any major problems, you should remember to support the twigs and have a decent filter, because the smell emitted by this plant can be very intense.
Taste qualities and effects.
In addition to the huge resin production, another feature that made Gorilla Glue so popular is undoubtedly the aroma and strong body sensation guaranteed by the high THC content. GG # 4 has a strong diesel-like scent combined with sour and piney aromas. Due to the high THC content, which can fluctuate between a stunning 27-30% THC, it guarantees strong effects. A small amount of this variety has a relaxing effect, bringing the whole body into a state of relaxation. More can make you feel very stoned and overwhelmingly drowsy. This plant is also highly appreciated by medical users. Due to its properties, it is great for relieving pain and as an aid in the fight against insomnia.
