Gorilla Glue 4’s pungent aroma and out-of-this-world THC potency have earned it numerous industry awards including first place in the 2014 Michigan and Los Angeles Cannabis Cups and the High Times Jamaican World Cup.
GG Strains crossed Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister, and Chocolate Diesel strains to produce this legendary indica hybrid. GG Strains’ breeders Joesy Whales and Lone Watie named the bud “Gorilla Glue #4” due to the plant’s heavy stickiness and high resin production. During the trimming process, Gorilla Glue would get a trimmer’s fingers and scissors stuck, just like the powerful adhesive brand.
Chem’s Sister, also known as Chem Sis or Chemdog A, is a sativa-dominant phenotype of the legendary Chemdawg strain. Developed in the mid-90s, Chem’s Sister features a skunky and diesel aroma, as well as cerebral effects also found in GG strains.
If you’re an avid cannabis user, you’ve probably heard of a few different Gorilla Glue strain names. One reason for this excess of names is a settled trademark infringement case between a cannabis business and an adhesive firm. The Gorilla Glue Co. and GG Strains LLC settled for GG Strains to transition from the original Gorilla Glue #4 name and anything that may resemble the Gorilla Glue Co. brand.
One whiff is all you need to appreciate Original Glue’s peppery, citrus, and herbal aromas. Gorilla Glue’s earthy and sour notes vary by batch, but are typically pungent and alluring. Chocolate Diesel passes along its coffee and chocolatey notes onto GG4, which are undercut by a distinctive diesel sharpness.
According to Leafly, Gorilla Glue is the most popular in the following cities: Portland, OR, Seattle, WA, Oklahoma City, OK, Denver, CO, Eugene, OR, Chandler, AZ, Los Angeles, CA, Shoreline, WA, Kelso, WA, Phoenix, AZ.

Today, you can find many different strains made with the original Gorilla Glue genetics. One of the descendants of the GG strain is Super Glu, a hybrid strain developed by John Dieser of Verano brands. Super Glu is backcrossed with Original Glue to reap more of the diesel aroma and floral flavor of its parent.
Gorilla Glue Strains have no shortage of highly potent marijuana strains. THC levels vary by strain and even by batch. Trichome production depends on growing conditions, clone quality, storage conditions, and other factors. While Gorilla Glue #4 is one of the strongest strains on the planet, its relative strains can offer THC levels that surpass Original Glue’s.

That sticky-icky-ness is no surprise given the plant’s lineage. Gorilla Glue is a cross between Sour Dubb and Chem Sister. Anything coming from the Chem Dawg branch of the cannabis family tree is going to create some impressive looking buds.
As the Vikings defense allowed an average running back to look like a superstar, I ground up some weed and braced for an afternoon of face-palming. The flavor of the smoke is very much in line with what you’d expect from Gorilla Glue’s aroma. It has a distinctly piney, earthy smell that makes me think it would make a good cup of tea. But, since you guys would hate this review if I based my impressions on how this weed tasted in hot water, I should probably just smoke my weed like an adult.
If you’re looking to savor a little Gorilla Glue for yourself, then make your way to the best source in town: The Station, a medical and recreational dispensary in Boulder, Colorado. If you’ve been looking for a professional yet laid-back joint to purchasing your cannabis, look no further. The Station isn’t like most gimmicky dispensaries around the state and has only one mission, to bring you what you desire – top shelf medical and recreational cannabis without all the showmanship and coupon cutting. You can pick up an eighth of Gorilla Glue for only $50; it’s worth every penny.
Gorilla Glue’s reputation as a heavy-hitting hybrid, to me, remains very true after trying it on more than a few occasions. I would recommend this as a strain for having a good time. Take it to a concert and you won’t be too tired or too racy to enjoy the show. It’s a party weed, and a good one. It’s not an ideal daytime weed, even though that’s what my particular situation called for.
The Vikings started out the second half hot and I was starting to feel a second wind as I toked down the rest of the bowl. I noticed that I really wasn’t coughing all that much. Nothing about the flavor itself is remarkable, but Gorilla Glue really turned out to be a smooth smoke. I’ve found most strains of that strength can be a bit harsh, but I had no problem with passively hitting the Gorilla Glue.
The psychoactive effects come on strong, but not so strong that I felt dull or totally unfocused. Although, after watching the Vikings’ offensive line fall apart faster than a Kardashian marriage, I was hoping the weed would distract me a little more. But that’s not the weed’s fault.
Sundays are made for getting too intoxicated too early in the day, and getting mad at things that you have absolutely no control over. In my case, as a dude from the North, that means watching the Minnesota Vikings be almost watchable for a few hours at the end of my weekend. Since I started smoking in college, marijuana has been a great way to relax as I watch Adrian Peterson fumble away a victory and my faith in humanity, or witness whatever use-to-be-good kicker they wheel out on the field to blow it when things matter most. Needless to say, I’ve needed progressively stronger cannabis to sooth my urge to launch my brunch at the television while the Vikings are embarrassing themselves.
I found Gorilla Glue to be a comforting presence in my life as the Minnesota Vikings found a way to make a ten-point lead feel like dragging an Impala up a muddy hill by chaining it to your waist. If you don’t have much of a tolerance for THC, Gorilla Glue is not a great strain to start with. It can be an intense high for those unfamiliar with these often euphoric, stoney sensations.
And in that next hour, you will start to feel the indica side of Gorilla Glue. You may be feeling that burst of energy at first, in my case I was caught rambling about how good Andrew Sendejo isn’t for several minutes. It wasn’t until we were into the second half that I started to feel the indica side of Gorilla Glue kicking in.
The batch I picked up was around 28% THC. If you smoke enough of just about anything that potent and you’re going to start feeling tired. But what I found nice about the Gorilla Glue was that I felt genuinely relaxed. There’s next to no CBD in this strain, so that relaxation definitely turned into lots of grogginess later in the day.
Before kickoff started, I soaked my go-to bowl. The blue one with the big cool lump in the middle that serves as a small smoke chamber. Once I’d blasted some res out of the glass piece, I sat down on my couch and examined the Gorilla Glue nugs I picked up. They’re a deep forest green with a solid coat of sticky white trichomes covering every bud. As the story goes, that’s how Gorilla Glue got its name. People trimming these plants found that their scissors would turn into a gunky, unusable mess thanks to their blanket of trichomes.
Gorilla Glue: a marijuana strain for having a good time. Take it to a concert; you won't be too tired or too racy to enjoy the show. It's a party strain!
