Gorilla Glue is a new fan-favourite. The Sativa-dominant hybrid, and multiple award-winning strain, has famously high THC content. Amazingly, this strain averages 18 to 25 percent THC, you can even find it as high as 32 percent in some places. Another great part of this strain is its incredibly low CBD content which is between 0.05 and 0.1 percent. Gorilla Glue is one of the most potent strains in the world.
The strain gets its name from the resin that builds up on the scissors when growers trim it. Although a Sativa hybrid, this plant has a crazy lineage which includes Sour Diesel, Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister, and Chocolate Diesel (quite a family tree).
Colourful and strong, this strain has a powerful aroma that can fill a room with sweet notes of chocolate and coffee. If you’re shopping around searching for this strain, all you need to do is look for its glistening green buds with its additional sparkling orange hairs.
Gorilla Glue is a chill Sativa strain, which provides a strong full-body high for both medicinal and recreational users. Recreational users will find that the buzz goes straight to their head, while medicinal users will likely enjoy a full-body high, which is rare for a Sativa-dominant cannabis strain. Together with its body buzz, with this strain you can also expect an uplifting, cerebral feeling.
Be wary of using this strain in the morning as its powerful effects aren’t conducive to going to work, being productive, or really anything other than relaxing. You will feel the effects immediately and it will “glue” you to the couch and deliver relaxation and euphoria.
The Gorilla Glue strain is known to treat disorders that are mental in origin, these include stress, anxiety, and depression. Also, this strain of cannabis is advantageous for those with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
It isn’t particularly great for serious medical conditions such as seizures, cancer, and central nervous disorders. It can work as a moderately powerful pain killer for headache and insomnia.
Why do people use Gorilla Glue?
Pain management is the main reason people use Gorilla Glue. Its high THC levels provide it with major pain-fighting potential. While this bud can have some mind-altering effects, Gorilla Glue’s Indica heritage amps up the physical effects it provides. This strain hits you like a ton of bricks and often produces a fun, albeit weird pressure in the eyes and around the sinuses.
Recreational users will love Gorilla Glue because it is hard-hitting and carries substantial cannabis THC levels. Beware that some novice consumers may find themselves paranoid, anxious, or overly sedated with this strain.
