When it comes to how you like your cannabis, it’s all about preference. Some like it dry and dense; not only do you get more bang for your buck, but it’s also ready to crumble into a joint. Some people like it fluffy and sticky; do you know those buds that never quite come off of your fingers after you’ve broken them up into a bowl? They’re marvelous! One thing we can all agree on is that we want our cannabis to be tasty. If you like tasty cannabis and your penchant leans more to the super sticky and dank end of the spectrum, then boy do I have a strain for you. Chances are if you’ve most likely heard of Gorilla Glue during your marijuana adventures, but in the off chance that you haven’t, I’m here to remedy that. Gorilla Glue is a sativa-dominant strain named after the infamous glue that puts super glue to shame. To be more precise, its name was coined when the first people trimming this strain realized that it was so sticky it adhered their scissors together. Like all other strains, you know there is more than just one variety. I most recently had the pleasure of partaking in Gorilla Glue #4, which is one of the more common versions of Gorilla Glue to encounter at any dispensary. Gorilla Glue #4 is commonly known to be the combination of the sativa-dominant Sour Dubb and the indica-dominant Chem Sister. With their power combined, you get Gorilla Glue #4; it’s one of the stickiest, dankest, and tastiest sativa-dominants I’ve ever had the joy of smoking.
I picked up my Gorilla Glue #4 from Chronic Therapy’s brand new small-batch grow. The new limited availability grows at Chronic Therapy in Wheat Ridge, Colorado include some of the best and most notoriously difficult to grow strains, including Girl Scout Cookies, Bubba Kush, HarleSin, Daywrecker OG, Sour Diesel, and Cheisel. This brand new shelf has a higher price tag attached to it, with grams for $20, eighths for $65, and quarters for $120 plus tax, but it’s well worth it for the quality and care that was put into cultivation. If you want to recapture the flavors, smells, and of course the crystally trichomes that are sometimes lost in mass cultivation, you need to get yourself down to Chronic Therapy and try out a strain from their limited reserve. Don’t forget, if you’re a Colorado resident you always receive 10% off your bud purchase.
Gorilla Glue #4 :: Appearance | Smell:
Just take one look at Gorilla Glue #4 and you can see why it would clog up your scissors when you’re trying to trim some buds – it’s loaded with trichomes. The buds are a pale sage color and compensate for their moderate number of hairs by having absurd concentrations of trichomes. If you’ve never had a really sticky weed before, Gorilla Glue is the paragon of sticky. This is the kind of weed that literally gums up your fingers in big clumps when you’re trying to break it up. If you think it looks and feels good, just wait for that smell. On initial sniff enough. I would equate a smell of Gorilla Glue to standing inside a warehouse full of marijuana plants. I really buried my nose even deeper into the jar looking to find some more delicate scents. I would be lying if I said I picked up notes of coriander and skunk because Gorilla Glue is all fresh sweet pine, all the way. If you want the full fresh alpine experience, look no further.
Gorilla Glue #4 :: Smoke | Effect:
Tarrying not a minute more, I loaded a massive nugget of Gorilla Glue into my Broncos themed pipe, Omaha (after all it was football Sunday). It’s not often I come across a weed that really truly tastes as good as it smells. In the case of Gorilla Glue #4, I was shocked that when I put fresh pine-scented weed in, I got fresh pine-flavored weed out. Really an extremely delightful smoking experience. I would definitely place Gorilla Glue as one of the best tasting strains I’ve ever had. Beyond the smoke tasting remarkably fresh and clean, it also was exceptionally smooth, and didn’t have me coughing at all. I sat back, let the Gorilla Glue kick in, and watched the TV expecting to see the Broncos luck run out against the Packers. No sooner had we scored our first touchdown than the effects of the Gorilla Glue had started to hit me. Clear and lucent sativa high was all that hit me. Although I’ve had sativas that have given me more energy in the past, I was surprised at how remarkably cognizant I still was after smoking a fair share. I was undeniably high, but I could still function. While I may not have been aware enough to remember to take the cupcakes out of the oven before turning it on (they melted), I was able to eat the warm melted cupcakes after I smelled them roasting. By the end of the evening, after a Broncos win, I was full of warm cupcakes and feeling more than a little contented.
If you’re in the market for one of the dankest, stickiest, tastiest, freshest, and smoothest sativas out there, then look no further than Gorilla Glue #4. While it can be fun from time to time to experience a random high with strange flavors, sometimes you want to feel a sativa high, and smoke some pine-fresh sticky buds to get there. Gorilla Glue doesn’t lie about what it is, and plays no coy games, trying to trick you with cheesy and skunky smells. Gorilla Glue is what it is, and that’s one of the freshest and most delectable sativas that anyone has ever had the fortune of smoking.
