Because it’s packed with high THC content, the strain is enjoyed by those who want to feel the relaxation from head to toe and finish the day with a deep night’s sleep.


Gorilla Glue Origin

The strain began when a breeder, Josey (Don) Whales, threw out his seeds because they “hermied” or developed male and female parts. A partner, Lone Watty, retained and planted some of the seeds. He selected the best plants from the new crop and went on to win the duo awards for the final product.


The original seeds planted by Whales in 2014 were a hybrid of a triple back-crossed Diesel crossed with Chocolate Thai and a few other unidentified strains. The resulting crop was sticky, potent, and quickly popular.

There are multiple strains of Gorilla Glue available today, including arguably the most popular, Gorilla Glue #4 and Gorilla Glue Auto – an auto-flowering version of #4.

There are debates about how the original Gorilla Glue strain gained its name. Some say it is from its sticky trichomes and others believe it is because it makes people feel like their head is filled with glue.

The most accepted version is that the original grower nicknamed it Gorilla Glue. After tending the crop, Whales answered the phone only to have the receiver stick to his palm because of the residue from the plants.

Growing Gorilla Glue Seeds

You need to meet all the growing requirements if you want to get the best results from this strain. Let’s look at some important facts that you should keep in mind if you are planning to grow Gorilla Glue seeds.

What climate does this strain grow best in?

Gorilla Glue strain grows best in outdoor gardens in warm environments between  68 and 85° Fahrenheit. The plants grow easily and are simple for average growers to cultivate if they have room. You need to keep humidity down when it’s flowering to help against mold. Towards the end of flowering, colder temperatures can increase trichome production

Feeding this particular strain

The plants may not like excessive rain, but they still need daily watering to keep them from becoming too dry. Rich organic soil is all the plants need to thrive if the nitrogen level remains high during the vegetative stage.

Drop the nitrogen level once the plants begin to bloom and add potassium, sulfur, magnesium, and phosphorus during the first couple of weeks of bud development for larger buds.

Flowering & Yield

Gorilla Glue plants begin flowering in about 8-9 weeks. Most growers will reap approximately 21 ounces per plant when grown outside. Indoor plants are slightly less productive at about 18 ounces per square meter. Expect to harvest outdoor crops sometime in mid-October.

Experiencing Gorilla Glue Strain

Gorilla Glue is an Indica dominant hybrid with a THC content that ranges from 25% to 26% and a CBD of 1%. The strain packs a powerful high that will leave you feeling like someone filled your mind with glue.

Gorilla Glue Taste & Smell

Gorilla Glue strain has an earthy, pine, and sour flavor. Because it packs high THC content, some people describe the flavor as mellow. Others say that it has a chocolate or coffee-like flavor. A significant number of people like the almost bitter taste that can wake up their senses.

Gorilla Glue smells a bit sour and sweet at the same time, with its burnt and pleasant scent before you consume it. It inherited this from the Chocolate Diesel. As such, it gives off a nice chocolaty, rich-mocha aroma. Side effects of this strain include dry mouth,  dizziness, and dry eyes. So you need to stay hydrated.
