Gorilla Glue strain review: Canada’s favorite hybrid strain

The Gorilla Glue strain review is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, ever since I first tried this sticky strain a few years ago, and now I’ll tell you exactly why this strain won several awards across the United States.

Some strains are popular because of the experts that crossed them, others are popular because of the name they carry, and the best strains are popular because of their quality.

Gorilla Glue is all of the above. The fact that Canadians are thrilled with Gorilla Glue speaks volumes for itself because you know Canadians won’t smoke just anything.

In fact, Gorilla Glue isn’t just one strain, as you may have guessed. Gorilla Glue is actually a company that creates new strains in laboratories, and they named their first strain just like the company, Gorilla Glue #4.

Now, the number 4 is a weird thing as well, why is it there, and what does it represent? We aren’t quite sure since there are several other Gorilla Glue strains with different numbers.

Luckily, we don’t have to care about it, since they changed it. Even though it might be coloquially known as Gorilla Glue #4, that’s not what it’s called any longer.

At one point, the company had a legal issue with the producer of the “Gorilla Glue” glue, whose rights the company infringed upon by calling their strain Gorilla Glue #4.

After a few months of legal disputes, the company manufacturing the actual glue agreed to the terms which GG set in regards to naming their products.

Seeing how GG had several strains with the same name but different numerical, they decided to give them a little update:

  • Gorilla Glue #4 is now Original Glue (GG4)
  • Gorilla Glue #5 is now New Glue (GG5)
  • Gorilla Glue #1 is now Sister Glue (GG1)

All of the Gorilla Glue strains are indica heavy, GG5 being the most indica dominant with about 79% presence in the strain.

Find My Strain

Visual aesthetics

Gorilla Glue strains are quite sticky. They are covered with trichomes and the nugs tend to be very bright green with some orange hairs, without too many variations to it.

The nugs seem to be very thick and not fluffy, which means that they are packed with the goodies that you’ll most certainly like.

When grown outside the plant tends to grow a lot of trichomes which are a natural water repellent, so the crystals strain always appear while flowering and the plant look very much like a sour strip.

Aroma

Gorilla Glue strains have various smells, although the users commonly say that they all share an earthy and pungent smell.

GG4 and GG1 have the same genetics since they both share the same parents, Sour Dubb, Chem Sis and Chocolate Diesel, so they also smell very much like a pine.

GG5, on the other hand, often has a strong diesel smell to it, similarly to Sour Diesel but less sour.

Taste

Just like the smells, the tastes are very much connected to the terpenes and are a direct link to the good genetics of these strains.

GG strains tend to have a strong earthy and piney taste on the inhale, and a bit diesel when exhaled. GG5 especially has that diesel aftertaste when exhaled.

The terpene profile is really high, so you don’t have to smoke too many extracts of this strain to get the real taste.

Availability

Even though Gorilla Glue is based in Las Vegas, Nevada, their strains are popular across North America.

Gorilla Glue strains won several Cannabis Cup awards and other notable competitions, which gave the Gorilla Glue #4 huge popularity in the last few years.

Where to find Gorilla Glue strains in Canada

After the strain became popular in California and Washington, Canada picked up on it and Gorilla Glue #4 is now one of the most researched strains on Google.

Several Canadian producers have this strain in their stock, although some of them don’t keep it under that name.

Seeing how the recreational legalization is just around the corner for Canada, I wouldn’t be surprised if GG was all over the online stores and dispensaries come October 17th.

Effect

According to one user that left a review, Gorilla Glue will make your body feel like it is being massaged by a vibrating chair, but nobody is touching you.

You will get a strong rush that leaves you feeling happy yet totally hazy, and for the next couple of hours you will be completely relaxed.

It is a great strain from those looking for pain relief and it will definitely leave you in blissful tranquility and joy after smoking.

Medical users say it is perfect for just about anything from depression, pain, and insomnia, to the occasional lack of appetite.

How to grow Gorilla Glue strain

Gorilla Glue is a relatively strong strain when it comes to the how healthy the genetics are, and how much the plant can yield.

They flower for about 8-9 weeks, and they are known to be relatively fast growers in the vegetative stage.

This strain has fairly bushy leaves and thick nugs, so some sort of assistance is needed in order to help it battle mold.

Experienced growers say that it can be grown both indoor and outdoors, preferably in a hydroponic system with the screen of green growing technique.
