The strain formerly known as Gorilla Glue #4, otherwise known by its abbreviation, GG4, and now recognized as Original Glue is an extremely potent top-shelf hybrid strain that was originally discovered by the world renowned team at GG Strains. GG4 is a multiple award-winning strain, dominating competitions within local circuits and even taking home the prestigious High Times World Cannabis Cup for ‘Best Hybrid’ in 2014. GG4 is praised for its notable potency and high THC content. As its name may suggest, Gorilla Glue #4 is extraordinarily sticky – each individual THC trichome is fresh and extremely adhesive.
Gorilla Glue #4 is a heavily intoxicating hybrid strain that is lauded amongst both medicinal and recreational users. The lineage of GG4 is unique and well-respected within the cannabis community. It consists of a trifecta of Chem Sis, Chocolate Diesel and Sour Dubb. Gorilla Glue #4 is 67% indica and 33% sativa, leaning more towards being an indica-dominant hybrid strain. On average, GG4 boasts mighty THC contents ranging between 27 to 30%, which is surprisingly high for a hybrid strain. The high of Gorilla Glue #4 initially begins as a heady high, uplifting users into a cerebral and euphoric buzz. It eventually transitions into a relaxed and sedated high, gluing users to their couches. The benefits of GG4 are most effective when used for the treatment of anxiety, PTSD, insomnia and moderate aches and pains.
Appearance & Aroma
Exceptionally resinous, Gorilla Glue #4 is famous for its visually captivating snow-white appearance. GG4’s buds are medium-sized and forest-green in colour, only being contrasted by its astonishing deep-purple calyxes and leaves. Quite frankly, the previously mentioned characteristics of GG4 are unremarkable compared to what it is globally known for – the staggering amount of THC covering the plant. These sticky buds are truly frosty and blanketed by a bright, resinous layer of trichome heads that cover the entirety of the plant. This strain takes its namesake from Gorilla Glue™, who are known for their extremely adhesive super glue products. The scent and flavour profile of Gorilla Glue #4 is strikingly earthy, gassy and pungent, containing notes of a chem-like diesel fuel, sweet milk chocolate and a hint of tart lemons.
