Gorilla Glue #4 is a Cup Winning Hybrid strain well known for it’s heavy and physical effects. MBA’s version combines Cup Winning Rockstar Kush genetics to allow a lightly reworked version to be available for discerning cannabis growers looking for seeds in regular form, versus clone only or feminized seed offerings offerings.
The strain is originally touted as a multiple hybrid cross with a cousin or sister of ChemDawg with injections of Chocolope and Sour Diesel genetics. Plant selection leaning towards the Indica end of the spectrum in both growth and effects. The trademark knock down physical potency while that still allows for good mental clarity. These are characteristics that are abundant in the seeded offspring, and much of the original flavor and aroma are easily detected both in the growing plants and in the dried bud, very pungent! Buds are compact, and pine cone shaped with deep green hues and purple tinges. Lots of resin can be seen on all parts of the buds, including the small leaves makes this plant especially sticky and pungent when cultivated. A few fiery hairs are visible against the thick white carpeting of resin.
The bud structure can get to be tower like if left to mature fully, further increasing both harvest weights and potent resin content. When given sufficient time to develop stature in vegetative growth or when higher planting densities are used, Gorilla Glue #4 is capable of excellent yields. With the genetic building blocks used to create this strain it’s simply hard to go wrong. THC levels of 25% have been attained when grown in carefully controlled environments. Overall, the growth patterns are well suited to growing indoors under lights, with fairly tight spacing between nodes and budding sites. Because of the Sativa heritage also present, plants offer some gains in size once flowering is initiated versus strains that are more Indica dominated in growth pattern.
Usually buds will finish in 8 to 9 weeks indoors after budding is initiated; a slightly shorter flowering period with the injection of RockStar Kush genetics. The strain may also be grown outdoors in warmer conditions, maturing some time starting in late October, depending on local conditions.
