Co-founder of Nevada-based GG StrainsGlues, Jon Peabody (also known as Joesy Whales), made history when he developed the first Glue strain in 2013. The strain won the Los Angeles Cannabis Cup thanks to its parent strains of sativa-rich Chem’s Sister, hybrid Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. The original Glue strain (classic Gorilla Glue) includes a rich and pungent mix of flavors and aromas that lead to an intense body high.
Thanks to its popularity, it made sense that growers would work on other Glue strains, which is where the ever-popular 805 Glue strain found its footing.
The Californian Glue strain (cultivar) is an indica-dominant hybrid (85% indica, 15% sativa) of two unknown hybrid indica strains. While no one can be sure, 805 Glue has always been thought to be a hybrid of at least the Gorilla Glue strain. The 805 Glue strain is THC-dominant at 21%.
The 805 Glue strain is a sought-after hybrid with an interesting etymology. It first appeared in Southern California with the telephone area code “805.” This strain is a cultivar by California’s greenhouse brand Pacific Stone and was created by crossing an unknown strain simply referred to as “805” with what experts believe is most likely Gorilla Glue #4 (GG4). Users say the strain gives off the perfect blend of citrus and earthy aromas with a taste that resembles skunk and soil.
GG4 is one of the strongest glue strains in the world, and the 805 Glue strain is a mellower version of its pungent cousin. 805 Glue buds are small and popcorn-shaped, with minty green nugs and thin orange hairs. They include a coating of frosty, tiny, white crystal trichomes, and thanks to the high indica genetics, it provides a heady and full body high. As the top running glue strain for sale in the United States, it is said to give you that famous “Santa Barbara daily chill.”
