While the most famous member of the Gorilla Glue family is undoubtedly #4, marijuana enthusiasts shouldn’t overlook GG strains’ Gorilla Glue #1 otherwise known as GG1. An Indica-dominant Hybrid, this blissful and euphoric bud is heavy hitting, with THC levels testing as high as 28%.
Packing all the heavy-handed effects marijuana enthusiasts would expect from an Indica, with a pleasant cerebral buzz. These euphoric Sativa-indebted traits make conversations flow freely, even if the experience tends to be very relaxed.
That said, larger amounts of this flower might make socializing, or anything other than staying glued to the couch a little challenging. Its safest to stick to the evenings with this strain, just in case. Use it as a nightcap after a long and stressful day, or before sitting down to a great meal.
For those seasoned marijuana consumers who found Gorilla Glue #4 not sedative enough, this strain ramps up the narcotic-like tranquility. For everyone else, take caution when consuming this herb in larger amounts.
Cannabis consumers familiar with GG1’s more widely known sibling will recognize many of those same aromas emanating off of this bud. Pungent pine and earthy scents are mixed with more sourness than #4, and a pleasant coffee odor. Don’t expect this flower to wake you up though!
Sweetness and a chocolate finish join these aromas on the inhale, making for a delicious smoke. While these will again be familiar to fans of #4, GG1 holds on to some of that sourness, making for a unique bud.
#1’s nugs are quite small, with a round look and dense, compact leaf structure. Occasionally there is a slight purple coloration to the olive foliage, but more striking is the thick layer of white crystal trichomes. These resinous crystals make this weed pretty sticky—keep a grinder nearby.
Medical marijuana patients looking for a potent way to kick their symptoms could do far worse than to pick up GG1.
