If you’ve ever had the pleasure of handling well-grown Gorilla Glue #4 Feminized, you’ll know exactly where this cultivar got its name. GG#4 is as sticky as they come, clogging up scissors and peeling skin from gloveless fingers ever since its accidental creation by Joesy Whales and Mardogg.
The story goes that Joesy had a crop of Sour Dubbs that were accidentally pollinated by some Chem Sis males. He got rid of the seeded plants but his friend Mardogg kept the seeds and eventually grew them out. The resultant plants had four main phenotypes, the fourth of which was slightly sativa-dominant and very, very sticky. Gorilla Glue #4 had arrived.

Getting High With a Gorilla
With all that sticky goodness, simply touching Gorilla Glue is enough to make you smile; take a toot and you’ll be happy for hours. The high begins with a fast-acting cerebral blow (it can be dizzying having every negative thought chased from your mind) but the aftermath is a serene euphoria, a calm, glassy high with clear eyes. This mental tranquility is reflected in a placid physical buzz… a deep, sensual massage better than hours of hot stone therapy.
The presence of Limonene, Caryophyllene, Pinene, Myrcene and Linalool in Gorilla Glue #4 offers numerous medicinal possibilities and could explain its anti-depressant properties. Gorilla Glue fans are often happy to point out the positive effects… the teasing out of smiles, the green shoots of joy, how difficult it is to feel down while giggling like a kid. The anxiolytic effects are felt first with that quick-hitting, one-toke euphoria. A lovely, warm uplifted feeling that can offer relief from stress, depression, PTSD and other mental ailments.
Those with physical afflictions such as chronic pain, insomnia, and muscular problems could do far worse than turn to the Gorilla. The high THC content offers rapid pain-relief and deep, unbroken sleep, as well as amazing anti-inflammatory effects. The THC level, however, should serve as a warning to those who are unfamiliar with or do not want excessive psychotropic effects. Gorilla Glue #4 Feminized is a heavy, powerful beast, a silver-backed monster of a high that can be daunting for inexperienced tokers. Moderation is key to getting the most out of this cultivar.
Sniffing the Glue
Those growing and curing Gorilla Glue #4 have often mistaken the smell for cat piss or a gas leak because of the strong nose of ammonia, but there’s more to GG#4 than initially meets the nostrils. Swelling below the fecal surface is a deep, dank earthiness, notes of bitter coffee and dark chocolate that reveal the true depth of the terpene profile. Fire it up and the full range of flavors fill the lungs. Kerosene, cocoa, slight hints of citrus and sharp, fresh-cut pine. These smells are as hard-hitting as the effects and the memories really linger. In years to come, you’ll be walking through a forest, sitting in a cafe or preparing a cocktail and some slight sniff will remind you of Gorilla Glue #4. It’s like having a friend for life.
Tasting the Ape
While the aroma of Gorilla Glue #4 Feminized should please the petrol-heads, the variety and interplay of flavors will beguile every gourmet and gastronome this side of Gordon Ramsay’s wrinkles. We have lemon and pine, herbs and spices, chocolate and cream, myriad flavors swirling and competing, separating and congealing. You change with each taste and each taste changes, too. This is due in no small part to the combination of terpenes found in high-quality Gorilla Glue #4. The peppered spice from the Caryophyllene, citrus from the Limonene and pungent herbs from the Myrcene. Tossed together and infinitely recombined, dancing crazily along excited taste buds and giving your tongue an experience it will never forget. In short, the flavors rock.
Raising a Gorilla
GG #4 is fantastic news for novice growers looking for an aggressive high and equally robust cannabis plant. Pop a few Gorilla Glue #4 feminized cannabis seeds and come harvest you’re looking at stacks of powerful, potent weed with little to overly challenge the beginner. The main tips? Don’t go overboard with the training, especially if you’re a newbie…Gorillas yield well even without a SCROG or SOG (Sea of Green). Be wary of vegging her too long as she can stretch to double her height and will need lots of space in flower, horizontally AND vertically. One thing you do need to keep on top of is your pruning, thinning out the lower canopy to allow more light penetration and maximum bud development. It’s an easy way to increase yield and especially effective with the fast-growing Gorilla Glue #4.
