Gorilla Glue #4 Indica Dominant Hybrid
This Gorilla Glue #4, also known as GG4 or Original Glue, is an indica dominant cannabis hybrid. It is an absolutely masterful blend of three premium and extremely potent cannabis strains. GG4 blends Chocolate Diesel with Sour Dub and Chem’s Sister. Heavy sedation and a sense of being “glued” to the couch await anyone looking to try this phenomenal hybrid. Not only did Gorilla Glue take top honours at BOTH Los Angeles and Michigan Cannabis Cup in 2014, but it also won the High Times Jamaican World Cup.
Gorilla Glue #4 has small, chunky, round buds. They glow bright green with fuzzy dark orange to light amber hairs. GG4’s buds are covered in a coating of tiny crystal trichomes. As a result, these little buds are covered in resin. Break one open, and the aroma will fill the room with pungent earthy, peppery and sour notes. These aromas are attributed to their parent strains. In addition, Gorilla Glue #4 has a sweet and spicy flavour of chocolate and diesel and becomes sweeter the longer it’s burning.
Effects of Gorilla Glue #4
Cannabinoid Range: up to 22% THC
Gorilla Glue #4 delivers a potent euphoria and eventual “glued” to the couch sensation. Similar to that of MKV Train, the effects come on slowly, building in the back of your mind and bringing on light creative energy. As the experience builds, GG4 locks you in a state of blissful relaxation. After that, you will be “glued” in whatever place you find yourself.
As a result of these powerful effects, and an intense THC potency, GG4 is recommended for treating hyperactivity disorders. Similarly, symptoms of Bipolar Disorder are said to be lessened. It is fantastic for relieving pain, and is often used to treat insomnia and chronic fatigue.

What is a Hybrid Strain?
A Hybrid strain refers to any combination of Sativa or Indica Strains. These strains offer more balanced Cannabis effects. Additionally, they make it much easier for Cannabis users to customize their experience. As a result, they appeal to a much wider spectrum of Cannabis users. By combining the invigorating and energizing effects of a Sativa with the pain-relieving and muscle-relaxing effects of an Indica, these strains offer the best of both worlds.
The Science of it all
Although mother nature has done most of the work for us, modern-day strains are mostly a design project. The cross-breeding of any plant species involves the same basic processes, and Cannabis is no exception. For instance, to crossbreed plant strains, female plants must receive pollen from their male counterparts. Out in the wild, this happens naturally. However, usually only between the same strains of Cannabis.
In creating new and exciting Hybrids, growers carefully select their cross strains and breed them in a controlled environment. As a result, they can dictate which traits from each strain will combine in the final product. The seeds from these plants will then become First Generation Hybrids.
Choosing a Hybrid Strain
Indica dominant like Gorilla Glue #4, Sativa dominant, or true Hybrid, there are unlimited possibilities and combinations to chose from. Therefore, it is important to consider what you’re using Cannabis for.
If you need pain relief but aren’t looking for heavy sedation, Sativa dominant Hybrids might be right for you. However, if you’re looking to relax without the added psychoactive effects, try using an Indica dominant strain. It is important to remember that not all strains affect all users the same way.
When choosing a Hybrid strain, look for the balance that is right for your individual Cannabis needs. Above all, we always recommend that you start low and go slow. In other words, start with a small dosage and increase slowly as needed until you find the balance that is right for your needs.
