Similar to Chem Sis, Sour Dubb’s high THC levels and uplifting, euphoric effects contribute to this strain’s strong and long-lasting cerebral sensation. If all those genetics weren’t enough, Chocolate Diesel tends to have high THC levels, so its inclusion in the genetics contributes to the overall potency of Gorilla Glue #4.

And just when you think you’ve got the flavor profile figured out, there’s a sneaky sour kick that adds a zesty twist, plus a hint of fruity sweetness to keep things interesting.

When you’re sparking up Gorilla Glue #4, you’ll be able to savor every hit with a complex aroma. 

Growing Gorilla Glue Strain

When growing the Gorilla Glue #4 strain, a grower can expect medium to high yields in 8-9 weeks, dense buds, and a pungent, earthy aroma. These plants are moderately difficult to grow indoors and outdoors, so it’s best for growers in the cannabis community with some knowledge and experience to take on the challenge of growing this tricky strain.

Flowering Time

The flowering stage of Gorilla Glue (GG4) has a few steps. In the kickoff weeks, the plants are transitioning to flowering, craving 12 hours of darkness and temps between 68-77°F. As they hit the early flowering time, they boost their phosphorus and potassium intake while sticking to the same light and temperature. Midway through, growers should keep the darkness coming and keep an eye on the trichomes. Maintain the humidity at 40-50% and temps from 68-75°F. In terms of late flowering, growers should reduce that nitrogen, watch the trichomes closely, and keep the humidity between 30 and 40%. Finally, when those trichomes are giving off “harvest me” vibes, growers need to flush them with water, let them have 12 hours of darkness, and keep the temperature cool at 68-75°F.

Yields to Expect

You’re in for decent yields at harvest time with Gorilla Glue #4. Growers can generally expect moderate to high yields. Indoor cultivation tends to yield around 400 to 600 grams per square meter (14 to 21 ounces per square meter). However, it’s important to provide adequate light, nutrients, and temperature control to maximize yields during the flowering phase, which typically spans 8 to 9 weeks.

Outdoor cultivation offers the potential for even larger yields. In the great outdoors, you might be looking at 600 to 800 grams (21 to 28 ounces) per plant or even more. Gorilla Glue thrives in warm climates and is usually ready for harvest in the fall. Implementing training techniques such as Low-Stress Training (LST) or Screen of Green (Scrog) can enhance light penetration and promote lateral growth, potentially increasing yields.

Growing Difficulty Level for Gorilla Glue #4

Growing Gorilla Glue seeds is moderately challenging, so they are best suited to experienced growers. These seeds tend to grow into tall plants, so you should get ready to do some trimming to manage the height and encourage lateral growth. If you’re growing outdoors, you need to make sure they’re in a warm, dry spot, away from too much rain and frosty weather. The warm outdoor environment will mimic the strain’s natural habitat.

If you’re an indoor grower, give them a comfy setup where you can play around with the light and temperature settings. If you want to amp up your yield and quality, you should consider some care tricks. You could implement low-stress training to tame the height and boost bud sites and keep an eye on nutrient levels, emphasizing phosphorus and potassium during flowering.

Gorilla Glue marijuana plants love to soak up light. In the vegetative stage, they crave a lot of daylight, so give them 18 to 24 hours of light every day. In the flowering stage, you should switch things up, supplying a solid 12 hours or half the day of uninterrupted darkness. Even a little light interruption can throw off their growth. And, of course, don’t forget that while Gorilla Glue #4 thrives in sunlight, it’s essential to avoid extremes. Whether indoors or outdoors, finding the right balance in environmental conditions is crucial. You need to be consistent with your light routine—these plants aren’t fans of sudden changes.
