Here in the nursery we try our best to meet market demands but in the last few months one specimen in particular has kept us on our toes. We are talking about our lovely new crystalline queen: Gorilla Glue#4 and it’s literally got everyone stuck on her. During the recent Emerald Cup, everyone wanted to know about “the glue” and the few cuts we had flew off the shelves.
So what’s the deal and spiel with this Gorilla Glue#4 lady? She recently won 1st place in the 2014 LA High Times Cannabis cup and her uniquely satisfying flavor profile and sensational traveling high make her a stand out for quality. The smoke is so nice it’s hard to believe that she was an accident! According to legend, the whole seedy situation started one day when breeder Joesy Whales entered his garden and found that some of his Chem Sis had hermied and pollinated some neighboring Sour Dub plants. Frustrated, Joesy Whales threw the strain away completely. Luckily, a fellow grow friend of Whales named Mardogg held onto some of the seeds; seizing the opportunity to turn lemons into lemonae. Mardogg later planted these seeds and the result was Gorilla Glue pheno’s #1,2 and 4 (#3 was stunted and dumped). In the end it was only #4 that became the chosen Gorilla and she went on to win the cup.
Don’t think for a minute that the GG4 (as we call it) is all hype. The strain is incredibly resinous. A bane to all trimmers, GG4 gets its name from its tendency to clog scissors until they are stuck; permanently perhaps! This shiny star is a stunner; she looks bedazzled in crystally buds. A winner for bag appeal. The initial flavor is front loaded with diesel and pine but there is also a smooth sweet undertone. This hybrid roller coaster high is euphoric, focused and happy. And wait, what’s this? Do I feel a tingle? Oh yeah buddy, it’s a pleasant head tingle that eventually blankets the body. Believe me it’s nice, real nice. As a matter of fact, it is so nice that now you want more and this where the story gets tense.
Here’s where we harsh the mellow. Because as Peter Parker says “with great strains come great internet feuds.” (Thanks Uncle Ben). So the forums are on fire with rumor, gossip, slander. Does so and so have #4, maybe it’s #3. Which cuts are Gorilla Glue at all? Who could tell? It’s a sad side effect of our underground past that it’s impossible to ever know for sure.
We would be lying if we ever told you that we could guarantee that one of our strains is identical to someone else’s version. And, frankly, so is anyone else that tells you that. But one of the assurances we can provide is that of uniformity. If you like a DHN strain you tried out, it will always be the same whenever you get it from us. So, please give Gorilla Glue #4 a shot and let us know what you think!
“Easier said than done,” you say. Fair enough. We’re not keeping up with the GG4 demand. But the Dark Heart propagation team wants you to sleep at night. We assure you we are working our hardest to increase production of this lady just for you. Just give us little time to beef up the inventory! Or should I say “glue” up the inventory!
