gorilla strain #4 has got a hold on us would be an understatement. But, hey, we’re not complaining! Also known as GG4, it took complex genetic engineering to create this legendary strain. This indica-dominant hybrid is a cross between Sour Diesel, Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister and Chocolate Diesel. Four parent strains? How progressive! Not only that but Gorilla Glue #4 is a multi-award-winner, taking home titles at the 2014 Cannabis Cup in both Los Angeles and Michigan and the High Times Jamaican World Cup.
This strain is notoriously sticky. It received its name from the fact that growers have a hard time trimming its highly resinous buds. It’s so sticky that it caused their scissors to stick together! Thus, a star was born.
A fan-favourite for its potent effects, alluring fragrance and out-of-this-world flavour, it’s no wonder why Gorilla Glue #4 is stuck in our hearts!
