Gorilla Glue #4 (GG #4), was certainly a happy accident. Produced by Californian farmers Josey Whales and Mardogg, this sativa-heavy hybrid has rapidly grown in popularity. GG#4 won the 2014 Cannabis Cup and was named "best hybrid" in the 2015 World Cannabis Cup.
Not only is it one of the most popular strains of all time, it's also one of the few, truly balanced hybrids. It easily recovers from rookie growing mistakes and is ideal for beginners.

Overview of Gorilla Glue #4
Legend has it the GG #4 plant is the product of an accidental cross between Chem Sis and Sour Dub, which was later crossed again with Chocolate Diesel. After a heavy bud-trimming session, Josey found his hands were sticking to things "like gorilla glue" and with that, the new strain was named.
The seriously sticky bud leaves smokers feeling focused, productive, and seriously relaxed, with maybe a punctuating fit of giggles or two. Overall, GG #4 is an incredibly potent strain, with THC levels between 25 - 28%.
The intense cerebral effects of this strain mean novice smokers should proceed with caution.
Potential Positive Effects
Characterized by an initial cerebral rush, the words "focus" and "productivity" come to mind when describing the first hour of a GG #4 high.
A little later, though, its hybrid nature starts to show, with the indica effects taking hold. You'll experience a slow body high, leaving you relaxed but not couch-locked.
The result is a combo body relaxation/mind-stimulation that seems ideal for both the hyper-productive and the super-unmotivated.
Potential Positive Effects
With its high THC content, new smokers may find Gorilla Glue #4 too strong. While it's a hybrid, the indica effects will eventually come through. Don't smoke too much GG#4 if you've made plans to go out.
Lineage of Gorilla Glue #4
The legendary strain came about as a mix between Chem Sis, Sour Dub, and Chocolate Diesel. While both Josey and Mardogg have cuts of the strain, they only released a limited number of cuts to private buyers. With each purchase, they gave strict instructions that the resulting clones could not be resold.
The strain's immense popularity means that this instruction wasn't followed and many unlicensed strains emerged, resulting in a decent number of imitations.
To avoid falling into this trap, you should ask your budtender about the strain's origins before purchasing GG#4, or try growing your own with seeds from the Homegrown Cannabis Co.
Growing Gorilla Glue #4
The GG #4 plant is mostly grown inside or in a greenhouse, thanks to its extremely potent, neighbor-alarming smell. With high THC levels, somewhere around 20 - 28%, the intense aroma is no surprise - don't let the dainty, light green color of the leaves throw you off.
By the time GG #4 is ready to be harvested, the leaves will appear sprinkled with a dusting of snow or frost thanks to a generous trichrome coating.
