Gorilla Glue #4 - Hybrid 

Strain Overview

Gorilla Glue #4 is a hybrid strain that is derived from Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel.  This earthy and sour-smelling bud often leaves patients feeling “glued” to the couch, hence its’ name. The average THC % for Gorilla Glue #4 is 17-22%, but the THC only tells a small portion of this strain’s story.

Terpene Profile and Effects

Marijuana has a notably strong unique aroma, and each strain has a different smell as well. The part of the marijuana plant that causes these different smells are the terpenes, aromatic molecules secreted inside the resin glands of the cannabis flowers. Terpenes not only provide a wide range of smells but can also accentuate the cannabinoid profile resulting in stronger and more focused physical and mental effects than the THC % would lead you to believe.

 

The primary terpenes found in Gorilla Glue #4 include caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene.

 

Caryophyllene, also found in black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and other spices like oregano, is best known for its spicy and peppery notes. Beta-caryophyllene binds to CB2 receptors hence its use in anti-inflammatory topicals and creams. Caryophyllene is the only terpene that binds to cannabinoid receptors.

 

Limonene is the second most abundant terpene in all cannabis strains. This is the terpene that gives cannabis a citrusy smell resembling that of lemons, which is no surprise as all citrus fruits contain large amounts of this compound. Limonene is known to improve mood and reduce stress. It also has antifungal and antibacterial properties.

 

Myrcene is the most abundant terpene in cannabis. The aroma is often described as earthy, musky notes, resembling cloves and sometimes also has a fruity, red grape-like smell. It has also been reported that it is useful in reducing inflammation and chronic pain.
