What Is GG #4?
Gorilla Glue #4 weed was first bred by GG Strains and is a cross of Chocolate Diesel, Sour Dubble, and Chem’s Sister. It has won multiple awards including a couple of Cannabis Cups. It’s no surprise that growers want to grow their own supply of GG#4.
Although we classify it as a near-balanced hybrid, you can get phenos that are either slightly Sativa or Indica dominant. According to stories buzzing around the 420 community, the GG #4 strain’s existence is a happy accident. According to legend it was created when a Sour Dubble plant was pollinated by a hermaphrodite Chem’s Sister plant, producing the genetics that led to the beloved strain we know today.
This unwanted pollination led to the crop being quickly destroyed, but crossbreeding some of the leftover seeds with Chocolate Diesel, resulted in the now-famous Gorilla Glue #4 strain.
GG #4’s aroma is skunky and very pungent, reminiscent of an indoor cannabis farm. It produces very sticky flowers, which helps explain its skunky odour. Additionally, you can detect notes of coffee and chocolate ensuring this strain is delicious to smoke.
Its Sour Dubble parentage provides a sour apple taste, while Chocolate Diesel adds hints of chocolate and gasoline.
The GG #4 seeds produce a plant that has buds that are densely packed with trichomes, with some small leaves and hairs sticking out. The buds appear as if they have received a light dusting of winter snow with their abundant trichomes.
You will get tons of finger hash when harvesting this strain as it is coated in resin. This is indicative of its extreme potency.
