How many Gorilla Glue phenotypes have you tried? Gorilla Glue #1 is a delicious, indica-dominant hybrid popular along the West Coast. Unlike it’s more popular sibling, this strain produces a deeply sleepy and relaxing high. In true Gorilla family form, this bud produces a happy and blissful euphoria and piney scent. A true heavy-hitter, this narcotic-like phenotype is popular among patients who struggle with chronic pain, insomnia, and appetite loss.

Strain details

The Gorilla Glue family line is beloved by growers and consumers alike. The most famous of the bunch is Gorilla Glue #4, which is considered one of the strongest strains in the world. Coming in a close second is Gorilla Glue #1, which is an earlier rendition of the top-shelf strain.

Bred by GG Strains, Gorilla Glue #1 is considered an indica-dominant hybrid. While all Gorilla Glue strains are heavy-hitting, #1 produces more sedative effects than its more popular sibling. Though, the THC levels of the two varieties are comparable. In one test, Gorilla Glue #1 reached over 28% THC.

Piney with some aromas of smokey, herbal earth and a hint of sweetness, Gorilla Glue #1 is delicious, intoxicating, and strong. This strain grows vigorously, though it tends to be sensitive to molds and mildews. Growers in dryer climates will love planting Gorilla Glue #1 outside.

Gorilla Glue #1 provides a strong, sedative experience. While Gorilla Glue #4 produces a heavy body sensation itself, these characteristics are amplified in Gorilla Glue #1.

Though the general growth patterns, aroma, and powerful qualities of this strain are similar to its close relative, this bud will likely produce a little less happy, clear-headed euphoria and a little more drowsy, narcotic-like tranquility.

This strain should be saved for the evening or nighttime, preferably before a big meal or as a perfect nightcap after a long day. Unlike many pure indica strains, this strain does have some euphoric, cerebral qualities.

Holding an interesting conversation will be perfectly doable after some Gorilla Glue #1. Though, high doses of this bud are more likely to put you to sleep than make you more sociable.
