Indica Dominant Hybrid – 60% Indica / 40% Sativa
Gorilla Glue #4, also known as “Original Glue,” “Gorilla Glue” or “GG#4,” is a slightly indica dominant hybrid strain (60% indica/40% sativa) created through crossing the infamous Chem’s Sister X Sour Dubb X Chocolate Diesel strains. This celebrity strain is a favorite of patients and breeders around the world for its super heavy effects and long-lasting high that will totally knock you flat out. The high comes on with a building effect, slowly filling your mind with a lifted euphoria and light creative energy. As your mind lifts higher and higher into happiness, an almost glue-like sense will kick in, leaving you mentally stuck in this blissful state and without a care in the world. This effect will soon spread throughout the rest of your body, leaving you hopelessly couch-locked and immovable for hours on end. With these hard-hitting effects and its super high 18-32% average THC level, Gorilla Glue #4 is often said to be perfect for treating ADD or ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, chronic pain, depression, chronic fatigue, insomnia, appetite loss or nausea and migraines or headaches. This bud has a spicy chemical chocolate flavor with a heavily diesel exhale that turns slightly sweet the more that you toke. The aroma follows the same profile, although with a heavy peppery pungency to it, too. Gorilla Glue #4 buds have small rounded forest green nugs with furry amber hairs and a coating of tiny amber-tinted white crystal trichomes that are dripping with sweet sticky resin.
This strain gets its name because of the resin that collects on the scissors when trimming. Gorilla Glue #4 has several parents due to extensive backcrossing – Sour Diesel, Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister, and Chocolate Diesel.
The hybrid strain has won awards at the 2014 Cannabis Cup in both Los Angeles and Michigan. It has been described as a bunch of trichromes with a few buds, leaves, and stalks sticking out.
The aroma is very strong and is mostly diesel with notes of chocolate and coffee, although sweet and earthy is also used to describe it. You’ll be going back for seconds due to the full-bodied and flavorful smoke. The buds are green with orange hairs. It is very dense, spongy, resinous, and covered in trichromes.
Gorilla Glue #4 makes you chill, medical and recreational users, both. It gives a full body melt, despite the Sativa-dominance. The body effect may be a result of the THC/CBD ratio, the terpene profile, and/or the synergistic effects of the cannabinoids. Along with the body buzz, expect uplifting, cerebral effects. Not exactly a strain to use in the morning, Gorilla Glue #4 is more suited to a day off from work or to end the day.
Recreational users will find that the buzz goes straight to the head. The effect is heavy-handed as this is a couch-locking strain. You will feel the effect immediately and it will “glue” you to the couch and deliver relaxation and euphoria.
With low CBD, Gorilla Glue #4 is not for serious medical conditions such as seizures, cancer, and central nervous disorders. It is good for mild and moderate conditions such as headache and insomnia. The indica provides sedating effects for painful disorders like arthritis and slipped discs.
This strain has a reputation for being able to treat disorders that are more mental in origin such as stress, anxiety, and depression. In particular, people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) have made Gorilla Glue #4 their go-to girl.
Gorilla Glue #4 came into being due to the accidental pollination of a hermaphrodite and therefore, growers advise that even if you get feminized seeds, you should check each plant for pollen sacs in the flowering stage. This strain flowers in 8 weeks and the yield is heavy.
Gorilla Glue flower is sweet with hints of sharp sourness that tends to vary from batch to batch. Burnt flowers produce a very strong skunk perfume that is thick in the air and sure to entice others nearby to ask what you are smoking on.
Bred specifically for maximum THC, the flavor of Gorilla Glue can be a bit muted and indistinguishable from other strains. This isn’t to say that it tastes bad, but it certainly doesn’t have the diversified pallet many other strains have.
Gorilla Glue was specifically bred for its THC content. Therefore, it isn’t the best sleep aid but the racing effect some experience will ease into a general stoniness after an initial rush.
The effect is typical of most OG varietals with an early onset of a euphoric rush and a gentle relaxation easing in thereafter for up to several hours. Gorilla Glue is sure to touch on several symptoms including pain management and is sure to trigger appetite stimulation.

Gorilla Glue #4 Strain Grow Info
Your Gorilla Glue #4 seeds can thrive indoors or outdoors. No matter where you cultivate your GG#4 crop, you’ll need more than a single pair of scissors during harvest time because the enormous amount of resin will clog up your cutting tools. Its rapid growth rate makes it an ideal candidate for the Screen of Green (SCROG) growing method.
Gorilla Glue #4 needs Magnesium, Calcium, and Sulfur, along with the usual combination of Phosphorus, Potassium, and Nitrogen. The ideal daytime temperature for this strain is around 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the vegetative stage. You can drop it by five degrees as the weed enters the blooming phase. Keep the relative humidity (RH) level at 60% from the beginning, and lower it to 45% during the flowering stage.
If you grow GG#4 outdoors, it should be ready for harvest by the middle of October, and it produces up to 21 ounces per plant. It is highly resistant to pests and diseases, and if you want to improve yield, consider adding CO2 to your grow room. Increase CO2 levels to 1000 parts per million (ppm), and your Gorilla Glue #4 plants could reward you with even more bud.
When grown inside, GG#4 has a flowering time of 8-9 weeks and yields around 18 ounces per square meter planted. Aside from the traditional method of growing weed in soil, you can also choose a hydroponic growing setup which involves an inert medium such as Rockwool. The main issue with hydroponics and Gorilla Glue #4 is that the strain grows so fast, you need to prune your plants regularly.
If you are interested in producing concentrates, live resin, bubble hash, and more from the cannabis you grow, Gorilla Glue #4 is a reliable option. It’s challenging to find a part of the GG #4 strain that doesn’t have some resin on it.
