Gorillas Getting Chill


Where Does Gorilla Glue #4 Come From?

This is one of those strains where we know pretty much exactly where it comes from. It is made by GG Strains out in Colorado, USA. It is an insanely potent mix that comes from an unknown combination of three different strains; Chocolate Diesel, Sour Dubb, and Chem Sister. What that creates is an ultra powerful strain that is a 70/30 sativa indica split.

The story goes that it was actually an accident that birthed the strain that would eventually take home the Michigan and Los Angeles 2014 Cannabis Cups as well as the High Times Jamaican World Cup. Allegedly, a Chem Sis accidentally pollinated a Sour Dubb plant. The company destroyed the plants because it wasn’t meant to happen, but they kept the seeds. Upon seeing the behemoth that it birth, the company crossed it again.

With a 25-28% THC strain that has been recorded as high as 30%, you will feel this in your bones and your skin. The bottom line is that this is absolutely one of the most potent and powerful strains on the market that has been bred for the sole purpose of getting you ridiculously high.

What Does Gorilla Glue #4 Look Like?

This is another fun experiment. Gorilla Glue #4 is not one of the more colorful strains, but is still very distinct. You will notice the heavy trichomes spotting the plant. They are literally impossible to miss. It is so coated in these dank particles that it sometimes looks pale and ghostly.

The other thing about it is that it is incredibly dense and heavy. These are nugs that are packed to the point of insanity. They are just stuffed with powerful chemicals that make it potent and delicious. You will know the real thing when you see it.

What Does Gorilla Glue #4 Taste Like?

Now, we are getting to the real fun stuff and we know you’ve been waiting for it. This is a powerful aroma that isn’t as pleasant as some milder strains, but you’ll come to appreciate it. Many people describe the smell of Gorilla Glue as like stale coffee, so we understand if you don’t love that part. It is a thick and heavy smell that permeates some of the thickest stash boxes.

But that is the fun. There is a taste of pine and earth when you smoke these dank nugs. They are flowing with power and you will notice when you smoke. Its hard not to. They are just so dank and delicious.

Here’s how we like to describe it. Imagine the full feeling of running through the woods. The deep woods where the air is heavy and thick. We’re not talking the park. You smell moss and peat and trees. The feeling is powerful and everywhere. You smell it more and more as you enter deeper into the forest. But you don’t mind. This is a journey that you want and need to take. This is a feeling of freeness even in the deepest and darkest woods.

That is what smoking Gorilla Glue #4 is like and its awesome. Try it out and see for yourself.

What Are the Effects of Gorilla Glue #4?

Finally, this is the part you have been waiting for, and you will not be disappointed. This is one of the most insane strains we’ve covered and we think you’ll be as excited about it as we are. The name Gorilla “Glue” comes from the idea that you will get “glued” to the couch when you smoke it, but there is some question as to whether that actually happens.

It is actually slightly more sativa dominant, which usually leads to more energy. But because it is so powerful, sometimes that might not matter at all. The truth is that there is definitely a feeling of excitement and euphoria when you first smoke some Gorilla Glue. You will get smacked hard with a true positive feeling before it levels out into just an intense high.

You will feel like you’re in another world when you smoke a lot of this. Its that powerful. Many stoners claim that this is their favorite strain of weed period. Its incredible and like nothing else out there.

And, of course, like all weed strains, it also has a number of medicinal benefits in addition to the recreational ones.

  • OCD
  • ADHD
  • Chronic Pain
  • Chronic Depression
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Insomnia

Point being, it doesn’t get a whole lot better than this.

Where Can I Get It?

Because this is such a powerful and important strain, many imposters exist. Be careful when purchasing that you know and trust your distributor. For the best quality and guaranteed freshness, we recommend you purchase directly from the vault. But just make sure you trust wherever you choose to get it from.


So, there you have it. This is a strain for everyone and everything. Be careful not to smoke too much or too early. You don’t want to lose the full days lost in the haze of the forest. This is a strain for someone looking to get baked wholly and totally. You will appreciate it, but remember the Spiderman Quote “with great power comes great responsibility.” Anyway, good luck and we wish you the best on this journey into the darkness of woods. Remember to bring a light and maybe a snack as well. Until next time, good luck and stay glued!
