[80% Sativa][Sour Dubb x Chem Sister]
Once in awhile a strain comes around that absolutely blows my mind, and trust me after 5 years working in the medical cannabis industry this is truly rare. Joesy Whales accidentally created this strain when a Sour Dubb plant got a little to handsy with Chem Sister in his grow room, so I guess that we can thank the universe for this happy accident. Although it is a Sativa and Chem based, I don’t get headaches or anxiety from this heavy hitter. If you’re sensitive to Sativa strains I would take a long, relaxed look at Gorilla Glue.
Not since I lived in San Francisco have I been so pleasantly surprised by the well roundedness and sheer audacity of strain as I have been with the Gorilla Glue that I’m slowly parcelling out right now. We put a small nug on the top of the jar it was in and it actually stayed stuck there even when the jar was turned upside down. Sticky, stanky and transcendental; everything I look for in a cannabis strain.
How Does It Hit The Senses?
The Gorilla Glue bud structure can only be described as turd like, you know those strains, don’t make that face at me. The buds are longer and reaching but still have that thick bulbous body with a dense compaction of calyxes. Rolling dark green and white green combine to make the buds almost seem to hold a green white sheen. That sheen is also probably due to the epic trichome seas that are washed over the entire bud. In fact the strain gets it’s name from how the trichs “glue” up the trimmer’s scissors after curing. Their aroma is absolutely breathtaking. The aroma overwhelms the senses with a strong lemon citrus that finishes with the tiniest hint of mint, much like Durban Poison but with more lemon than pine. As you inhale the vapor or smoke from Gorilla Glue the taste buds are enlivened with a rich chocolate flavor that finishes with the unmatchable diesel aftermath just lingering around as the effects come into play. If you are attempting to grow Gorilla Glue be patient you’ll get a moderate yield after 9-10 weeks.
What are the Effects?
Immediately after inhalation you’ll feel the ocular and brain systems dissipate any pressure that you may been holding onto. Unlike a lot of strains that I feel drizzle down my spine to deliver their pain relief, this one slides into the heart space to release shoulder tension and lighten the hearts connection to the mind. Feel relief from depression and anxiety as worries seem to just melt away within minutes of medicating. As the effects kick in you will certainly maintain your mental faculties, although I tend to get lost within them so I don’t recommend driving or handling any heavy machinery before medicating with Gorilla Glue. This is where the introspection comes into play, Oh Man. I’ve had writers block, I’ve been feeling hopeless about many of my career plays recently and I’ve been downright lazy; Gorilla Glue changed all of that. Medicate with this strain and write an epic poem or enjoy an enlightened conversation with a loved one; and if you’re feeling so inclined it will facilitate some epic TV watching. Also, don’t worry too much about munchies with this one. I’m immensely impressed because Sativa strains don’t generally get me this hard but I’m converted now after some serious time with Gorilla Glue.
