Origins, Genetics, History
Gorilla Glue #4 is the offspring of Chem Sister, crossed with Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. It was created by GG Strains, and is also known as GG #4, to avoid confusion with the actual glue. This potent weed is said to be named for its sticky trichomes, so bountiful that it makes the weed extra sticky. It is also said to be named Gorilla Glue for the fact that the couchlock will make you feel as if glued to the couch. In 2014, GG #4 garnered two Cannabis Cups and a Jamaican Cup for its potent, yet balanced effects.
GG strains’ popularity rose largely as a result of it’s Gorilla Glue series. However, there was an issue with the name Gorilla Glue, used to describe the bounty of sticky trichomes and resins produced by the plant. The name of course, was already taken by the makers of a super tough glue, called Gorilla Glue. Therefore, the official name of the Gorilla Glue series had to be changed to GG, including GG#4 and GG#1.
Appearance and Smell

Lastly, Chocolate Diesel adds the tastes of chocolate, and of gasoline. The smell is sure to fill a room quickly.

Medicinal Marijuana Review
Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana has sky high THC levels, up to 30 percent, and low CBD levels. It is also 50 percent Indica, and 50 percent Sativa. This gives it the ability to be a potent weapon against pain, making the whole body numb. This is helpful in conditions of musculoskeletal pain such as sciatica and other forms of back pain, fibromyalgia, polymyositis, and other myalgias. It can also help in neuropathic pain such as the pain caused by multiple sclerosis and peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathic pain can be difficult to tackle because sometimes the pain is far out of proportion to the signs of visible damage to the body. Peripheral neuropathy, often caused by diabetes, cannot be seen at all with the naked eye, yet it can cause unrelenting pain such as burning pain in the feet where there are no visible signs of damage to the area. Sometimes, doctors are skeptical of patients’ claims to pain and think they are doctor shopping to get pain relievers like opiates. Marijuana varieties, such as Gorilla Glue #4, though very much enjoyable, are not nearly as addictive as opioids. Therefore, doctors are less likely to be skeptical of a request for medical marijuana than a request for opiates.
Gorilla Glue #4 bud’s strong THC levels and balanced genetics also make it good for conditions of anxiety and inattention such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Phobia, Major Depression, ADD, and ADHD. The stimulating effect can help users maintain focus, while the relaxation can help quell psychomotor agitation and anxiety. In ADHD, the patient experiences hyperactivity along with an inability to sustain attention, this can be a problem in many areas of life. Gorilla Glue #4 has a Sativa component with high THC levels that acts just like a stimulant to sustain attention. People sometimes use a Sativa while playing video games to help with focus. At the same time, the psychomotor agitation or inability to sit still can be controlled with Gorilla Glue #4’s Indica component which will relax the body and completely lower the tendency to experience hyperactive movement.
Gorilla Glue #4 cannabis helps with nausea that can present in conditions including as a side effect to chemotherapy for cancers or autoimmune conditions. Smoking can be a helpful means of delivery for an anti-nausea medication, side-stepping the risk of the medicine being vomited back up. It also displaces the need for anti-nausea shots. Nausea can also be a factor in diseases of dysautonomia. Dysautonomia includes conditions like POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) and can include symptoms like cyclical vomiting where the patient is unable to hold down anti-nausea medications. This is where a smokable solution comes in handy.
Gorilla Glue #4 pot can improve appetite along with it’s ability to relax the body. It will give you a state of the munchies which can be helpful in conditions of poor appetite. It can sometimes be used in Anorexia. It is able to give the patient an appetite while at the same times lowering inhibitions against the intaking of food. It helps to quell the bad thoughts that play into the condition such as the self-consciousness about how the body looks and feels. Instead, the recovering patient is able to quench their thirst and hunger without feeling guilty and depressed.
Gorilla Glue #4 weed is also an effective treatment for insomnia or sleeplessness. The strong relaxation, when taken during bed time, will make it easy to drift off into a restful slumber. Insomnia is often a factor in depression and anxiety disorders. In Bipolar Disorder, during a Bipolar Mania, persons may sometimes be unable to sleep for days. Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana can help solve this problem by making the days’ worries dissolve away, and the stress and muscular pain that keep you up are extinguished.
