2014 Cannabis Cup Winner – Gorilla Glue #4
Gorilla Glue #4 is one of the most potent strains I’ve tried in the past few months. This cannabis cup winner is definitely a strain worth looking into.
Gorilla Glue #4’s origins are quite a hazy area. The strain is said to come from Chemsis, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. After looking a little deeper I came across a review on thecannabist in which Ry Prichard breaks down the strain a bit more.
“Chocolate Diesel x Sisdub sounds simple. Consider, then, that Chocolate Diesel is Chocolate Trip (which is ((Chocolate Thai x Indigo Diamond) x (Indigo Diamond x Chocolate Thai)) crossed with Sour Diesel. That’s only one half of the genetic equation, which seems more like a quadratic equation.”
The effects of Gorilla Glue #4 started off unlike most other hybrids strains. Instead of giving me an initial head high, I first felt the effects in my legs, which felt strange at first but then became rather enjoyable. A few more hits in and I began to notice my head becoming heavier, then sedated throughout my entire body. The effects last quite a while slowly dying down over 2-3 hours.
Neither the taste nor the smell have any real pungency too it. Instead, Gorilla Glue #4 gives of subtle hints of taste and smell which point to it’s complex genetics. Once broken up however, the strong diesel/pine scent erupts from the nug, leaving you taken aback. The taste is subtle, and goes down smooth when smoked in a joint or a bong, however, its fruity/pine tastes are brought out even more when using a vaporizer.
In the vape
I knew Gorilla Glue #4 was going to be a potent strain, so I decided to crank up the vape to a nice high temperature of 210°C. The first initial hit was a huge lovely white cloud of vapour which I didn’t really seem to notice inhaling. On the exhale however the amount of vapour proved to be too much for me and I ended up spluttering my lungs out.
The strain has a nice dark hue to its leafs, however the colour of the strain is more silver/light green coloured due to its thick covering of crystals. Gorilla Glue is also complemented well by a scattering of orange hairs which contrast against it’s silver body.
I hope all that justifies to you why this extremely potent strain was a 2014 cannabis cup winner. If not, I suggest you go out, pick up the strain for yourself and experience Gorilla Glue #4.
