Pungent and Powerful
Strong in flavor and strong in scent, it’s easy to be drawn in by Gorilla Glue, also known as Gorilla Glue #1. Recognizable by her pungent diesel, coffee and chocolate smoke, you’ll find yourself coming back for more with this knock-out champion, which arrived on the scene in 2016 and has been a favorite for consumers ever since.
Winner of first place at the 2014 Cannabis Cup Awards and the High Times Jamaican World Cup, Gorilla Glue is a 50/50 Sativa-Indica beast with a 26% to 28% THC level that can couch-lock even the most seasoned consumers - if you’re after an easy ride of euphoria and relaxation, this is the ganja for you - you’ll soon be “glued” to your seat.
Easy to grow and even easier to smoke, it doesn’t take much to get a high yield of insanely stick buds from this plant, potency evident from the get go with just one look at the syrupy, adhesive-coated nugs - the result of a three way cross between Chocolate Diesel, Sour Dubb and Chem’s Sister.
Popular for her medicinal uses as much as the recreational, Gorilla Glue Regular will provide relief for a number of physical and psychological ailments - particularly notable for her analgesic effects.
Flavor and Fragrance of Gorilla Glue
If you’re looking for a full-bodied, earthy flavor then Gorilla Glue is just that. Tasty and woody as you inhale, you’ll soon find yourself with subtle hints of coffee, chocolate and mocha playing on your tongue as you exhale, and that’s not forgetting the sour punch of chemical diesel essence that lingers in your mouth long after you’re finished, much like her sister strains.
This chemical essence is partly what gives Gorilla Glue her pungent aroma, strong with diesel notes and a touch of sweet earthy undertones that provide a nice stability to the powerful sweet-sour scent.
Gorilla Glue: best described as strong and sticky, as you’d expect. With THC levels of up to 28%, there are few weeds that can rival this strain for strength alone. As such, she's not a strain for beginners - newbies should look elsewhere, as the effects of one toke are almost instantaneous and will last for around four hours. Not one for messing with.
Once you start with this, though, you can expect a cerebral buzz to soar through your mind with the smallest of inhalations. Surging waves of euphoria will make themselves known, charging down your innermost worries and stresses and wiping them off the board almost like a tranquilizer: a complete mind and body numbing high.
Give it a few minutes, and you’ll find yourself calming, relaxing from the top of your head to the tips of your toes, don’t expect to be getting up any time soon with Gorilla Glue - even the most energized of consumers will find themselves couch-locked and immovable, awash in blissful thoughts as your body unwinds and your mind roams free and wild.
Definitely not the weed for you if productivity is what you’re after, even the most experienced of consumers will struggle to do much after smoking this, so it’s better to keep it to evenings and weekends only. But if you favor bang for your buck, Gorilla Glue Regular is the perfect choice - and instant, deep and long-lasting high right from the first toke.
Medical Uses of Gorilla Glue Regular
Due to the extreme chill-out properties of Gorilla Glue, she's a favorite strain amongst medical users of marijuana, particularly for those after pain relief. Migraines, chronic back and neck pain and muscle spasms will be a thing of the past, as this strain offers a substantial level of pain relief.
If psychological concerns are of greater issue, Gorilla Glue can help there too - this strain is popular with those suffering from depression, stress or anxiety, as a toke or too will wash away those negative thoughts, inducing a positive, chilled mental state in moments.
Given the strong sedative effects, this strain is understandably popular with insomniacs too, lulling you off into a deep slumber with ease. If eating disorders are an issue, Gorilla Glue Regular can again help - this is a strain with a strong munchies effect, and you’ll find yourself eating again in no time.
As is often the case, there’s a small downside, of course. Gorilla Glue can induce paranoia and anxiety in inexperienced users, due to a high THC level, and should not be played with by newbies. Cottonmouth and dry, itchy eyes are fairly common side effects too, leaving consumers feeling irritated - not ideal. Drinking plenty of water and using over-the-counter eye drops can help you to avoid or remedy this, though. If you’re particularly sensitive, you may find that you experience some anxiety with this strain, leading to paranoia, dizziness and headaches, so be sure to consider this before taking a toke.
Growing Gorilla Glue Regular
Though the THC content is not to be tangled with if you’re a newbie, growing Gorilla Glue Regular couldn’t be easier for even the most inexperienced of novices. Requiring no more than the usual tools, she's a true Indica - fairly small, doesn’t require too much space, and great for indoor growers.
This is a strain that will thrive in almost any environment that isn’t too cold, though it will prosper more fully in a Mediterranean climate: warm and humid is ideal, with plenty of light.
As the flora begins to flower, you might find that the cola will become too heavy and will require some support installing to prevent disaster - but you won’t be disappointed in the huge, resin-filled nugs these beans produce, coated in glorious crystal trichomes.
As you might have gathered from the name, Gorilla Glue is as sticky as it gets, which is great for your cannabis but a tad tricky when it comes to harvesting. The plant will flower after 9 or 10 weeks, and can reward you with anything from 400 to 600 grams per square meter of beautiful sticky buds, sure to clog up your trimming scissors.
As a regular cannabis seed, don’t forget to weed out those pesky males though - once you do, bask in the glory of her olive green nugs, with undertones of purple and that all important super frosty coating of tiny crystalline trichomes, which you’ll find start appearing very early.
Gorilla Glue Regular is a tranquilizer of a strain, perfect if you’re looking for an ultra-relaxing high that wipes you out and knocks you flat, clearing your mind of stress, pain, anxiety and pretty much everything else. Definitely not a daytime hybrid, expect a night of deep, calm euphoria brought on by a more-ish, earthy smoke, overladen with notes of coffee and chocolate.
Medically, Gorilla Glue is just as appealing as you’d think, easily relaxing those tense, painful muscles and smoothing away those aches. Expect those low moods and anxious feelings to be a thing of the past, as this ganja will uplift and clear out any nasty lingering worries.
Simple even for a novice to grow, the only worry you have here is that Gorilla Glue could be too heavily laden with sweet, sticky buds - if that’s even possible. This is one strain that’s sure to become - and stay - a firm favorite.
