Gorilla Glue is an Indica-dominant 60/40 hybrid blend. It was created by combining Chocolate Diesel and Sour Diesel. This strain was originally given the name 420 Glue because of its capacity to create a strong couch-lock.
Appearance, Taste, and Aroma
Gorilla Glue has a medium-density of leaves that appear light green in color. The texture of the Gorilla Glue strain makes it a good choice for growers who prefer a SCROG training. Like most Indica varieties, this strain tends to produce a dense and bushy plant with significant girth.
Because of its high THC content (about 25%), the taste of Gorilla Glue can be a little indistinct. It tends to come across as a mix of sweet and sour notes blended with a healthy dose of skunk.
The smell of Gorilla Glue is that of a traditional skunk, and it can be very strong. Due to this reason, Gorilla Glue is not regarded as a discreet strain and is most often enjoyed in privacy or outdoor locations.

In large doses, it can deliver a mild headache and dizziness. Many users remark that Gorilla Glue is helpful for insomnia, delivering a nice night of restful sleep.
