Strain Review: Gorilla Glue #4

Gorilla Glue #4, or GG4, was created by GG Strains. It was created from three different strains: Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister, and Chocolate Diesel. GG4 is a hybrid strain but gives off heavy indica effects. This strain is quite popular in the cannabis community and even goes by a different name in some parts. The other name for this strain is typically Original Glue.


The effects of GG4 can vary. It is a hybrid strain, however, it is Indica-dominant. That means this strain can leave you feeling happy, euphoric, and even uplifted. But there are still some sativa traits in this strain. You can also feel relaxed and/or sleepy from smoking some GG4. And that feeling of sleepiness can hit hard. Gorilla Glue #4 got part of its name because of this. You can get so high from it that you almost feel “glued” to your couch.

There are some downsides to this strain, however (just like there are to all others). For instance, you will likely get cottonmouth or a really dry mouth. Another possibility is dry eyes. Also, those who get easily paranoid may have an increased sense of paranoia after smoking some GG4.

Flavors And Scents

GG4 is known to have a very strong, pungent smell. This is one of those strains that when you smoke it, everyone around you will know you are smoking it. It’s almost like wifi, the smell is so strong that it reaches another house (get it?).

Expect an earthy, pine smell and taste from this strain. If you have ever smoked any of GG4’s parent strains (Sour Dubb, Chem’s Sister, or Chocolate Diesel), then you can relate the flavors of GG4 to any of those strains. This strain is also known to be slightly sour (probably from that Sour Dubb).

Medical Properties

GG4 does great at getting its users high, but it also holds various medical properties. Here are some of the health conditions that medical marijuana patients (or even just someone suffering from one) could treat by using GG4:

  • pain
  • stress
  • depression
  • insomnia
  • lack of appetite

If you suffer from any of these conditions, try out some GG4, it may help out. And yes, since it helps with lack of appetite, it does have the potential to bring about the munchies.
