It was created by GG Strains and went on to win two Cannabis Cups, starting in 2014 and one High Times Jamaican Cup. The name has been shortened to GG so as to avoid copyright rows with the actual Gorilla Clue company that literally makes glue. Gorilla Glue weed is so-called due to the fact that it can give you couchlock and make you feel glued to the couch, and because its abundance of trichomes makes it a very sticky weed.

Many autoflowers will be ready to harvest in less than 10 weeks from seed. Dwarf varieties can have short stature while still giving decent yield. Conversely “super autos” can take over 100 days to mature and can reach over 6 feet tall.

Adverse effects Gorilla Glue #4, like many strong strains, can produce the anticholinergic side effects of dry mouth and dry eye. Rarely, there are side effects of anxiety and paranoia.

Although some studies of acupuncture for anxiety have had positive outcomes, in general, many of the studies on acupuncture for anxiety have been of poor methodological quality or not of statistical significance. In addition, because the research is extremely variable (e.g., number and variety of acupuncture points, frequency of sessions, and duration of treatment), it is difficult to draw firm conclusions about potential benefits.

Growing difficulty Growing Gorilla Glue #4 plants are of easy to moderate growing difficulty.  It may take some basic gardening skills and the right environment to bring up good GG #4 plants.

Origins, Genetics, History

Gorilla Glue #4 is the offspring of Chem Sister, crossed with Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. It was created by GG Strains and is also known as GG #4, to avoid confusion with the actual glue. This potent weed is said to be named for its sticky trichomes, so bountiful that it makes the weed extra sticky. It is also said to be named Gorilla Glue for the fact that the couchlock will make you feel as if glued to the couch. In 2014, GG #4 garnered two Cannabis Cups and a Jamaican Cup for its potent, yet balanced effects.

GG strains’ popularity rose largely as a result of its Gorilla Glue series. However, there was an issue with the name Gorilla Glue, used to describe the bounty of sticky trichomes and resins produced by the plant. The name of course, was already taken by the makers of a super tough glue, called Gorilla Glue. Therefore, the official name of the Gorilla Glue series had to be changed to GG, including GG#4 and GG#1.

Appearance and Smell

The Gorilla Glue #4 plant grows to be a tall plant, as much as 80 inches tall. It is drowning in frosty, sticky trichomes and resins. It looks to be a light green plant, covered in the white sticky frost, with little orange hairs. It has all of the flavors and fragrances of its parent plants, including, chemical, sour, sweet, earthiness, pine, berry, and chocolate.

The sheer mixture of tastes from the parent plants produces the formidable, pungent variety of flavors you will experience with Gorilla Glue #4. The sticky trichomes and resins also add a strong pungency to the plant. It’s the first parent, Chem’s Sister adds a chemical-like, manufactured taste. This makes it a veritable Frankenstein of a hybrid. Next, Sour Dubb adds a sour taste like a green-apple Jolly Rancher. The sour tastes make it smooth on the inhale and helps fight nausea. Lastly, Chocolate Diesel adds the tastes of chocolate, and of gasoline. The smell is sure to fill a room quickly. Gorilla Glue #4 should be stored in tightly closed containers like Mason jars, or using Cannadoor systems with CVaults, especially if it needs to be kept secretly.

How to Grow Gorilla Glue #4 Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings

Growing weed from Gorilla Glue #4 cannabis seeds and cuttings is of easy to medium difficulty. When processing these plants, you will be dealing with a lot of sticky glue from the plentiful resins and trichomes. Gorilla Glue #4 can be grown indoors but truly shines grown outdoors. Flower Power fertilizer can be employed to add an extra kick of nutrients to your soil. These plants will require some care and gardening skills, but like most weeds, they are hearty plants. Since these are tall plants, it is important to position light sources so as to coax the plants to grow in ways that expose the leaves to as much sunlight as possible.

Growing indoors, Gorilla Glue #4 cannabis will be ready for a plentiful harvest in eight to nine weeks. The Gorilla Glue #4 strain grown indoors can be expected to yield about 18 ounces per meter squared. It is a tall, sticky plant, overflowing with trichomes. Growing the plant, indoors, it is possible to precisely control the humidity, temperature and light exposure. The airflow needs to be maintained and the air needs to be kept dry. Lights should be set to maintain a sunny environment.

If you want to grow Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana outdoors, Gorilla Glue #4 grows well with plenty of suns and in a dry area. It will yield 21 ounces of sticky icky pot per plant. Gorilla Glue #4 really shines when grown outdoors. The yield of 21 ounces per plant is compounded exponentially by the sheer volume of sticky trichomes and high levels of THC. This makes it a very profitable plant for both recreational and medicinal use.

Medicinal Marijuana Review

Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana has sky-high THC levels, up to 30 percent, and low CBD levels. It is also 50 percent Indica and 50 percent Sativa. This gives it the ability to be a potent weapon against pain, making the whole body numb. This is helpful in conditions of musculoskeletal pain such as sciatica and other forms of back pain, fibromyalgia, polymyositis, and other myalgias. It can also help in neuropathic pain such as the pain caused by multiple sclerosis and peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathic pain can be difficult to tackle because sometimes the pain is far out of proportion to the signs of visible damage to the body. Peripheral neuropathy, often caused by diabetes, cannot be seen at all with the naked eye, yet it can cause unrelenting pain such as burning pain in the feet where there are no visible signs of damage to the area. Sometimes, doctors are skeptical of patients’ claims to pain and think they are doctor shopping to get pain relievers like opiates. Marijuana varieties, such as Gorilla Glue #4, though very much enjoyable, are not nearly as addictive as opioids. Therefore, doctors are less likely to be skeptical of a request for medical marijuana than a request for opiates.

Gorilla Glue #4 bud’s strong THC levels and balanced genetics also make it good for conditions of anxiety and inattention such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, Major Depression, ADD, and ADHD. The stimulating effect can help users maintain focus, while the relaxation can help quell psychomotor agitation and anxiety. In ADHD, the patient experiences hyperactivity along with an inability to sustain attention, this can be a problem in many areas of life. Gorilla Glue #4 has a Sativa component with high THC levels that acts just like a stimulant to sustain attention. People sometimes use Sativa while playing video games to help with focus. At the same time, the psychomotor agitation or inability to sit still can be controlled with Gorilla Glue #4’s Indica component which will relax the body and completely lower the tendency to experience hyperactive movement.

Gorilla Glue #4 cannabis helps with nausea that can present in conditions including as a side effect to chemotherapy for cancers or autoimmune conditions. Smoking can be a helpful means of delivery for anti-nausea medication, side-stepping the risk of the medicine being vomited back up. It also displaces the need for anti-nausea shots. Nausea can also be a factor in diseases of dysautonomia. Dysautonomia includes conditions like POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) and can include symptoms like cyclical vomiting where the patient is unable to hold down anti-nausea medications. This is where a smokable solution comes in handy.

Gorilla Glue #4 pot can improve appetite along with it’s ability to relax the body. It will give you a state of the munchies which can be helpful in conditions of poor appetite. It can sometimes be used in Anorexia. It is able to give the patient an appetite while at the same times lowering inhibitions against   the intaking of food. It helps to quell the bad thoughts that play into the condition such as the self-consciousness about how the body looks and feels. Instead, the recovering patient is able to quench their thirst and hunger without feeling guilty and depressed.

Gorilla Glue #4 weed is also an effective treatment for insomnia or sleeplessness. The strong relaxation, when taken during bedtime, will make it easy to drift off into a restful slumber. Insomnia is often a factor in depression and anxiety disorders. In Bipolar Disorder, during a Bipolar Mania, persons may sometimes be unable to sleep for days.   Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana can help solve this problem by making the days’ worries dissolve away, and the stress and muscular pain that keeps you up are extinguished. This makes it possible to drift into forgetfulness and wake up refreshed.

There is not better strain then Gorilla Glue #4. The first 3 are good but #4 is great and breeders don't need to make a #5. #4 is just perfect.

Probably the best sativa on the market today. If you ever get a chance to get a hold of GG4 do it. You will not find a better strain to add to your collection.

I'm 35 years old male having mainly Portuguese roots with some Indian (Native) American and maybe a mix of others. I haven't eaten for more than 16 hours I guess and now I'm high on this strain. I've been smoking it day and night for a few weeks, just can't stop! So I smoked some (again) and ten minutes later started cooking breakfast because I was just starving. In the middle of the process I realized I was cooking more and more. I ate a french toast, two eggs, andouille sausage link, 1 cup of blueberries, and wanted even more! Usually my stomach does not consume so much food at a time, but it was so fucking good, and the munchies I had were so severe I just couldn't stop. But what about my mental state... I feel fine now. Not bad, not too good, just perfect. The happy medium. That's why I think I should go and take another hit. And then finish the meal (or everything I can find in the fridge).

So ten minutes later I'm back after taking a little more than I expected. I can definitely feel my brain's right side being activated more than usual, and it's been only 20 minutes after smoking. By the way, people who read my other reviews might have noticed that I'm more uplifted than usual, but not euphoric though. And now the second high kicks into my brain, that is being declined now, the eyes are heavy, can feel the slight chair lock along with relaxed muscles. It becomes harder to concentrate now. But nothing bad so far.

So you can see the difference of smoking small and large amount of Gorilla Glue. People describe its effects more like after smoking bigger amount. But I would use it carefully in the morning to lift my spirit and then in the evening (but a couple of hits more) to get relaxed and sleepy. It's really nice to experiment with!

I've been growing and using cannabis for 40+ years, got a masters degree in agri/horticulture from MSU and this experience allows me to break any review down. I can surely tell you this one's gonna be soon on the list of top 10 strains of all time!!! So what about growing, it's extremely easy, especially if you find an actual cut. Both indoors and out. It has mold resistance, great yield and not too long of a lowering time. Remember that it was created by self-pollination so there'll be seeds in it. But not many and far between, so that's not a problem considering the quality of the end product. Hands down everything in it is perfect. The combination of Sativa, Indica, THC content, smell, taste, look. It's just peerless! I think it can be used all day long and for ANYTHING, you want. There's also no need in describing the smell, effects or potency because it is truly good for everything. The taste is amazing and unique, it can't be described in a few words, it's like try to answer the question "what flowers do you smell" walking into the flower store. You smell them all!

The situation was like this: I asked my bud-tender to show me something new, something unusual from the connoisseur's shelf. He offered me newer strain Mother's milk (who the hell could even think up such a name??). And the other one was Gorilla Glue #4, obviously. My first impression about those was really good and here I'll try to grade fairly Gg4 with my special scale of 10 points given for the Aroma, Taste and Potency (maximum score for each is 10).

Aroma: 10/10 +1. To be honest I've never awarded any strain that high before. Such a unique, pungent and incredibly strong earthy aroma with notes of industrial ammonia deserves it. You just imagine growing indoor a huge uncleaned litter box, having a strong odor of cat piss. You could do that only with the help of serious filters or... just leave the apartment.

Taste: 9.5 is just as strong as the aroma but thanks god quite different, not overwhelming and def not so skunky. Initially it's more earthy and piney and it appeared to be surprisingly good. For me it's one of the best things I've tasted in a while, besides Jenny Kush. So intense and so mellow at the same time, amazing.

Potency: 9.0 I appreciate strains giving me the most intense head and body high and the euphoria I experienced with Gg is beyond any comparison. It hits you quickly with psychedelic intensity and makes you lethargically focused. It was like I needed a seatbelt for reality while I was fully concentrated on the movie I had on.

Assessment: an earned 5 stars strain, an example of perfection and my love behind the grave... Not the right choice for novices but worth trying it by any means.

I crossed Gorilla Glue number 4 with a seed that was created by Crossing pre 98 Bubba Kush X DJ Short Blueberry the only reason I did not give a five star is because it hasn't been grown out yet but plants less than knee high with blue leaves and smell hopefully like it's going to taste heaven Hashi blueberry with a knock-down kick I have seeds lots of them and they are regular seed

Currently using Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana to recover from a surgery. This potent indica does a superb job at reducing pain and helping me to relax. Great taste, smooth inhalation. A dry mouth was a bit of a problem but it’s totally worth it… So calm, peaceful, and happy every time I smoke it!

 by Ryan

Gorilla Glue #4 strain did not help me with pain issues at all. After reading lots of positive reviews about it, I had high hopes but now I’m disappointed… Seems to me White Widow and Girl Scout Cookies are much better in helping with the pain… All I got from this pot was a debilitating high… dunno maybe it’s just me…

 by Arthur

Such a strong, sedative experience! In my experience, it was a bit mind-numbing and helped me forget about chronic pain… Well, to be perfectly honest, I even forgot where my kitchen was!!! Awesome experience. I used to prefer Girl Scout Cookies for helping me to cope with the pain issues, but now I think I’m gonna switch to GG#4!

 by Carl

OMG, this is the best marijuana ever, period! Gorilla Glue #4 is potent strain with the THC level of around 20 will put you on your ass and make you forget about the things you need to forget. The taste is smooth and earthy, which I especially liked… And it hits you pretty quickly, so find a good place and get ready to relax like you’ve never done before in your life!

 by Henry

Gorilla Glue #4 strain was recommended by a friend. This pot helped him with some pain, so I thought it could be useful for my insomnia. Well, the effects lasted for about an hour but it’s okay because I finally had a good sleep. I guess my friend was right: you can never go wrong with Gorilla Glue cannabis.

 by Douglas

WOW! The guy at the dispensary sure knew what he was talking about! Now it’s my favorite strain! I worked magically for my chronic low back pain! It just fixed everything in a matter of minutes! Definitely, a big-time strain because it puts me in a state when I feel like the happiest person in the world!!! Plus it didn’t take a lot to get me high.
