GG4

Gorilla Glue #4, often shortened to GG4, is a sativa-dominant cannabis hybrid created by GG strains. A potent hybrid cultivar, GG4 is 63% sativa and 37% indica.

Gorilla Glue #4 has a distinctive look. Densely packed and glazed with crystalline particles and trichomes, the plant also tends to feature leaves and hairs that stick out, giving buds the appearance of having a light dusting of snow.

Winning multiple awards, it remains famous for its THC content, which is among the highest in the world at 25%. As a result, this strain is only recommended for more experienced users.

Because of extensive backcrossing, the Gorilla Glue strain has many parents, including Sour Diesel, Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister, and Chocolate Diesel. This strain is far from a caffeine boost for coffee and chocolate tasting, producing a “couch-lock” effect.
