Gorilla Glue #4 Cannabis Strain
A notoriously sticky strain, Gorilla Glue #4 got its name from the fact that growers has a hard time trimming its buds, with the high resin content leading their scissors to stick together. Thus, this heavy-hitter of a strain was born. Gorilla Glue #4 is said to be sativa-dominant, although it is in fact more accurately an exact hybrid of both sativa and indica properties.
With its THC levels borderline through the roof, having clocked in at times at a record 30% in some dispensaries, Gorilla Glue #4 is nothing for the faint hearted. Bold in its cerebral effects, it induces a heavy head high with a potent push to relaxation. Also to be noted, are how long its effects can last – often leaving you in a hazy cerebral high for up to 4 hours.
Gorilla Glue #4 instills a happy, giggly high with a sense of skin-tingling euphoria. It is uplifting while maintaining focus, and is a perfect strain for those days when you want to just chill out on the couch with your buddies and unwind.
Indulgent in its unique fragrance, you can smell that Gorilla Glue #4 means business like no other. It has a woody, pine-like aroma to it that borders on a hint of fresh sandalwood. What breaks up its pungent, mossy scent is that of a certain dark sweetness, much like berries and fresh wild cherries.
Gorilla Glue #4 tastes much the way it smells. Its flavors are all about a dark woody aftertaste, mixed with a hint of earthy pine. It also has a hint of coffee and chocolate in it, breaking up the dark spicy accents with a hint of the fragrant sweetness. Sometimes, it can leave a slightly chemical aftertaste in your mouth due to its potency and high THC levels.
Another reason why it is a favorite of many, is because of Gorilla Glue #4’s ability to soothe so many ailments. Its potency guarantees for a solid pain relief that could be caused by many potentially complicated diseases such as muscle spasms, gum disease, chronic back pains and many others.
Gorilla Glue #4 is also a powerful stress-reliever and is therefore widely used in the treatment of depression and anxiety. It is helpful for those who seek a little help to initiate a restful night of sleep, and has therefore been successfully prescribed to combat disruptive bouts of insomnia.
For patients who suffer from a lack of appetite due to medication or chemotherapy and radiation treatments in the battle against cancer, can be prescribed Gorilla Glue #4. It can help them restore their appetite by eliminating the feeling of nausea.
Gorilla Glue #4 makes you chill, medical and recreational users, both. It gives a full body melt, despite the Sativa-dominance. The body effect may be a result of the THC/CBD ratio, the terpene profile, and/or the synergistic effects of the cannabinoids. Along with the body buzz, expect uplifting, cerebral effects. Not exactly a strain to use in the morning, Gorilla Glue #4 is more suited to a day off from work or to end the day.
Recreational users will find that the buzz goes straight to the head. The effect is heavy-handed as this is a couch-locking strain. You will feel the effect immediately and it will “glue” you to the couch and deliver relaxation and euphoria.
With low CBD, Gorilla Glue #4 is not for serious medical conditions such as seizures, cancer, and central nervous disorders. It is good for mild and moderate conditions such as headache and insomnia. The indica provides sedating effects for painful disorders like arthritis and slipped discs.
This strain has a reputation for being able to treat disorders that are more mental in origin such as stress, anxiety, and depression. In particular, people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) have made Gorilla Glue #4 their go-to girl.
