The Gorilla Glue (GG #4) Strain Took The World By Storm With Its Sedative High And Earthy-Sweet Flavors


There was a point in time where you couldn’t stop hearing about the Gorilla Glue #4 strain aka Original Glue, or GG#4. Whether it was from every shop up and down the West Coast carrying it, or rappers talking about smoking it in popular tracks, it was everywhere. It’s only arguable fall from the limelight could have come when lawsuits forced the name to change to Original Glue instead of Gorilla Glue. There were also many other strains becoming super popular around this time such as GSC and Wedding Cake. Whatever the reason was for its slight decrease in overall popularity, GG#4 is still a super spicy and sweet treat worth trying.

This potent hybrid is a combination of Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. So many sour and gassy strains went into concocting this masterpiece of potential euphoric sedation. It won several High Times Cannabis Cups and even the High Times Jamaican World Cup, and worldwide still is a sought after hitter. Looking at some Gorilla Glue or GG#4, you’ll notice bushy nugs with grassy green and earthy yellow hues. There’s an incredibly thick blanket of trichomes across its surface that hint at its potent THC levels. Electric orange pistils jut out from within to create an aesthetically pleasing sight.

Breaking a nug open, you’ll find yourself in a swirl of sour chemical gas, with hints of sweetness poking out to strike a balance. The dominant terpenes in Gorilla Glue aka GG#4 are beta-caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene. This would explain the blast of pure gas this strain gives off before revealing its zesty and sweet qualities.

Beta-caryophyllene is a great terpene for potentially finding relief from chronic pain, and it adds a spicy, earthy, and peppery flavor to the mix. Limonene is a classically citrus and lemony terp that may help with anxiety and stress and gives the Gorilla Glue strain some sweetness. Myrcene is a common terpene that may help relax and uplift your spirits and lends to some of the earthy floral qualities of its scent.

Smoking on some of the Gorilla Glue strain may, as the name implies, glue you to your seat. The pleasant sour and sweet notes enhance the heavy high that may consume you. The Gorilla Glue aka Original Glue strain hits hard and shoots you up into space with potentially soaring euphoric feelings. Many companies will produce this strain still in their initial stages, if not longer, because it still holds such a strong place in many tokers’ hearts for its pleasing effects.
