Some strains live up their name, others fail miserably. Gorilla Glue #4 does more than live up to its name, it completely owns it.
Gorilla Glue #4, or GG4, is a heavyweight amongst the contenders for most potent strain. A Sativa-dominant hybrid created by GG Strains, GG4 has gained popularity for its name and matching effects.
Gorilla Glue #4 has an interesting lineage, beginning with the interbreeding of Sour Diesel, Sour Dubb, Choco Diesel and Chem’s Sister. From there, growers opted to buy clones as the process of creating a pure GG4 is tricky.
But hey, why reinvent the wheel, right?
From the first glance at Gorilla Glue #4, it gives off the appearance of a premium cannabis strain. It features dense buds with a light green hue, almost like an unripened lime. Tiny orange hairs and trichomes cover the plant, looking as if it could use a hair cut. Not that you’d want to, because soon as you get your hands on it, the lovely resin from the trichomes stick to your fingers.
GG4 is not recommended for day time use, although the fragrance may state otherwise. Upon inspection, the buds give off a refreshing smell of coffee and chocolate. A pungent perfume ties them together in a way only cannabis could pull off.
Gorilla Glue #4 Effects + Benefits
Normally, you wouldn’t expect a Sativa flower to completely knock you off your feet. But, GG4 will not have you cleaning the house. This strain boasts a high-level THC content, measured in the 30’s percentage-wise! Now that’s a strain to call home about.
Soon as the 3rd puff of smoke hits the lungs, the high begins to grow, attacking from all angles. Your body begins to feel heavy and muscles loosen up like a massage. A mysterious force then pulls you down to Earth and staples you to the couch, hence one of the reasons for its name.
Once the body has transformed into a sack of potatoes, a rejuvenating phase of euphoria begins. Your mind transforms into a beacon of positivity, bringing out the best of every situation. The strain provides a unique introspection, showing you things that you’d like to change, but far too stoned to do anything about it at the moment. It’s best to have a piece of paper and a pen close by.
For the medical cannabis community, GG4 is a saviour. Heavy sedation numbs pain eases arthritis, chronic pain and other inflammatory conditions.
The strain improves sleeping conditions such as insomnia. Sedation, relaxation and euphoric sensations combined to create the perfect ambiance for falling asleep. Restless nights are a thing of the past.
