May Spotlight – Gorilla Glue #4: Genetics and Background


Gorilla Glue #4, affectionately known as GG4, is a hybrid strain that has captured the hearts of cannabis enthusiasts due to its powerful effects and complex flavors. This strain emerged from a serendipitous accident when Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel were crossed, resulting in a sticky, potent hybrid that boasts an impressive THC content that often exceeds 28%.

Renowned for its robustness and awarded multiple times, GG4 has become a staple in the cannabis community, particularly appreciated for its ability to deliver both a soaring euphoric high and profound body relaxation.


Effects and Experience


GG4 is celebrated for its potent effects that strike a delightful balance between mental stimulation and physical relaxation. The experience begins with a rapid onset of euphoria that enhances mood and focuses the mind, often followed by a powerful wave of relaxation that washes over the body without leading to sedation.
