Origins / ancestries Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana Type: Gorilla Glue #4 is a cross among Chem’s Sister with Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. It was created by GG Strains and went on to win two Cannabis Cups, starting in 2014 and one High Times Jamaican Cup. The name has been shortened to GG so as to avoid copyright rows with the actual Gorilla Clue company that literally makes glue. Gorilla Glue weed is so called due to the fact that it can give you couchlock and make you feel glued to the couch, and because its abundance of trichomes make it a very sticky weed. Fragrance and Tastes The Gorilla Glue #4 strain has the following flavors and aromas: spicy, coffee-like, diesel, sour, berry, earthiness, fruitiness, sweet, pine, chocolate, chemical, and pungent. May improve these conditions: Gorilla Glue #4 has balanced relaxation and stimulating properties. It is strong against pains of all kinds, including musculoskeletal chronic pain such as back pain, neck pain, muscle cramps, and spasms. It also helps with relaxation, making a fine antidote for insomnia. It fights nausea and lack of appetite. Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana has sky high THC levels, up to 30 percent, and low CBD levels. It is also 50 percent Indica, and 50 percent Sativa. This gives it the ability to be a potent weapon against pain, making the whole body numb. This is helpful in conditions of musculoskeletal pain such as sciatica and other forms of back pain, fibromyalgia, polymyositis, and other myalgias. It can also help in neuropathic pain such as the pain caused by multiple sclerosis and peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathic pain can be difficult to tackle because sometimes the pain is far out of proportion to the signs of visible damage to the body. Peripheral neuropathy, often caused by diabetes, cannot be seen at all with the naked eye, yet it can cause unrelenting pain such as burning pain in the feet where there are no visible signs of damage to the area. Sometimes, doctors are skeptical of patients’ claims to pain and think they are doctor shopping to get pain relievers like opiates. Marijuana varieties, such as Gorilla Glue #4, though very much enjoyable, are not nearly as addictive as opioids. Therefore, doctors are less likely to be skeptical of a request for medical marijuana than a request for opiates. Gorilla Glue #4 bud’s strong THC levels and balanced genetics also make it good for conditions of anxiety and inattention such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, Major Depression, ADD, and ADHD. The stimulating effect can help users maintain focus, while the relaxation can help quell psychomotor agitation and anxiety. In ADHD, the patient experiences hyperactivity along with an inability to sustain attention, this can be a problem in many areas of life. Gorilla Glue #4 has a Sativa component with high THC levels that acts just like a stimulant to sustain attention. People sometimes use a Sativa while playing video games to help with focus. At the same time, the psychomotor agitation or inability to sit still can be controlled with Gorilla Glue #4’s Indica component which will relax the body and completely lower the tendency to experience hyperactive movement.
