The flavor of Gorilla Glue #4 is most commonly defined as earthy, piney and sour. Because the THC content is so high in the strain, some describe the flavor as mellow and even indistinguishable from other strains. However, others swear there is bold, coffee-like or chocolate flavor to it, and others love the almost bitter, but not unpleasantly so, taste that wakes up the senses.
Earthy, Coffee, Pine, Pungent and Chocolate.
Buds of Gorilla Glue #4 tend to be light green in color and covered with sticky trichomes and resins. You’ll find sticky frost and orange hair throughout.
Gorilla Glue gets its name from the couch-locking effect it has on you. Even the smallest hits or a smoker with an unusually high tolerance can experience a powerful, sedating high.
If you are a new smoker, take this one slowly, as its side effects can be overwhelming if you’re not familiar with the high — or even if you are!
The most common effects that users feel are a surge of euphoria, erupting fits of laughter and joy, followed by a heavy, almost tranquilizing high. The impact of the strain washes over you entirely and engulfs your senses, numbing you from head-to-toe over time. As the initial high wears off, it is an extremely calming and relaxing experience.
Users note increased mental clarity, stimulation, energy and uber-relaxing effects associated with Gorilla Glue.
Because of the strength of this strain, some users also note darting effects and intense paranoia. Experienced users or users that don’t get ahead of themselves shouldn’t have to worry about that.
Medical Benefits and Side Effects
Side effects of Gorilla Glue #4 are, not surprisingly, extreme dry mouth and dry eyes. More so than with any other strain, monitor your water intake and keep eye drops on hand to combat these uncomfortable effects.
Due to the numbing intensity of this high, it is a great strain to reduce chronic, widespread pain or to deal with insomnia and depression. The effect will wash over you almost instantaneously and help manage pain.
While the hard-hitting impact of Gorilla Glue #4 can be a good thing for some anxiety, others will actually experience increased feelings of unease and paranoia. Therefore, as with any strain, it’s different for everyone, so you need to experiment and see how the strain effects you.
Gorilla Glue is also a great strain for stomach ailments, such as nausea and lack of appetite. Try it to soothe a variety of stomach issues next time you want to reach for a prescription or over-the-counter drug that may only upset your stomach further.
Growing This Strain.
This is an easy-to-moderate strain to grow, perfect for growers with average experience to attempt. Gorilla Glue is best suited in warm, outdoor environments, but will also produce a slightly smaller yield indoors.
Be prepared to trim regularly as plants tend to grow very tall and very fast; trimming will often ensure a satisfactory yield. Make plenty of room for these plants to grow tall and healthy, up to 80 inches at times.
Gorilla Glue #4 is particularly sensitive to rain and frost, so keep plants clear of both. However, the plant is typically resilient to pests, mold, mildew, bacteria, viruses and insects. If you tried growing before and had little luck due to insect infestations or mold and mildew, this strain may be a good solution for you.
Flowering typically occurs at around eight to nine weeks of growth.
