So they kept the strain around, growing larger and larger batches of #4 clones. Subsequently, Gorilla Glue, named for the strain’s tendency to gunk up scissors during harvest, was born.
What’s more, Gorilla Glue #4 lived up to the hype. Medical patients were won over by the strain’s ability to treat pain without necessitating a nap. Connoisseurs flocked to the huge diesel aroma and potent-but-balanced hybrid high.
Compared to GG4, GG5 lacks the happy mental stimulation and sativa head space of its famed parent—opting for a more cohesive high that’s very good at doing one thing: chilling a person out.
One morning, Whales entered his flower room to discover male pollen sacks growing from a female Chem’s Sister plant. He noticed that a nearby Sour Dubb plant had been dusted with pollen, and when the crop came down, he kept the seeds.
From a medical perspective, GG5 is most appropriate as a sedative and sleep aid—goodbye, insomnia!—but it doesn’t seem to do much for pain like other heavy indicas of its class.
A year later, he tested out the happenstance genetics, but like their hermaphroditic father, the female offspring also produced male pollen sacks and an entire stadium grow grew to seed.
The upside here is that emotional distance can be exactly what a person needs to rationally approach whatever it is that life throws their way.
But the hype outpaced availability, and soon GG4 knockoffs and opportunistic crosses diluted the name in a hasty cash grab.
The high is strong and long, centering and sleepy, stoning and blissful. Though this example of GG5 tests at a moderate 21.2% THC, the loud, terpinolene-dominant terpene profile ups the psychoactivity by cloudy leaps.
