The Gorilla Glue weed # 4, also called GG4, is one of the favourite varieties of cannabis admirers and most popular worldwide, even in the view of CBD cannabis.

As for appreciation, we can compare the GG with pizza: everyone may love it. And they don’t… There is something wrong with them!

Born from GG Strains (based in Nevada) in 2014, Gorilla Glue has quickly made its way around the world, taking hold in all the Recreational shops of Ontario up to Europe, in Amsterdam’s coffee shops.

From 2014 onwards, he has received a wide variety of awards, including:

  • 1st place 2014 Jamaica World Cup
  • 1st place 2014 Michigan Medical / Cannabis Cup
  • 1st place 2014 LA Top 10 Hybrid
  • 1st place 2014 LA Medical / Cannabis Cup
  • 1st place 2015 Patient’s Choice Award
  • The Best Hybrid 2015 Hempcon Cup
  • 1st place 2015 World Cannabis Cup
  • 1st place 2018 Spannabis Cannabis Championship Cup

We can say that it is the best known and most appreciated strain worldwide, both for its very high cannabinoid content (THC for illegal weed and hashish in the UK and CBD for legal weed UK) and its origins.

Gorilla Glue # 4 overview, the world's most potent herb

The prestigious origins of Gorilla Glue # 4

Joesy Whales and Lone Watty, GG Strain’s founders, speak for themselves: Gorilla Glue # 4 was born from a miraculous mistake!

It happened that Joesy and Watty were growing some Chem Sister and Sour Dubb plants, but a visit from the police forced them to organize a quick move. The stress caused by the movements led to a Chem Sister hermaphroditism, which pollinated itself and other plants.

The anger, motivated by the months of hard work lost, led Joesy and Watty to eliminate all the plants, including seeds.

Their friend Mardogg, who had contributed to eliminating the plants, had the farsighted idea of keeping some seeds. From these, some stable female plants were born. The two friends considered them exceptional, but the fourth (# 4) stood out remarkably.

With dark green flowers and bright orange pistils, incredibly resinous, its name Gorilla Glue 4 derives from the remarkable stickiness of the flowers given, precisely, by the enormous quantity of resin produced by the trichomes. Gorilla Glue is the weed beyond comparison in the USA (on a par with a US Attack), to which the flowers of GG4 have been compared.

Just think that, during the tanning, the buds remained glued to the growers’ scissors!

Its percentages of THC for the illegal strain in the UK range from about 27 to 30%. Simultaneously, the amounts of CBD for the legal Gorilla Glue strain are around 22%. It is no coincidence that GG4 is considered to be the most potent herb in the world.

Characteristics of Gorilla Glue # 4 buds

Gorilla Glue, an Indica-dominant strain, features bright-green flowers studded with orange pistils and covered with a thick layer of resin, similar to a sweet icing.

The aromas of CBD flower GG4 are predominantly of pine and earth, with an aftertaste of chocolate and diesel, given by the high levels of myrcene and pinene terpenes and the noble origins of this cannabis variety.

Intoxicating, fresh but sweet at the same time, with that diesel undertone that feels very old school, Gorilla Glue’s flavour is among the most popular in the field of marijuana.

The effects are also highly sought after. 

Relaxing, pain-relieving, and long-lasting: we talk about the CBD cannabis and euphoria, followed by a deep and heavy relaxation when we talk about the high THC weed.
