GG4 f.k.a. Gorilla Glue No. 4
Perhaps the champion of sofa-anchor strains, the aromatic GG4 cranks user relaxation to 11. On its fourth iteration, GG4 gets its name from extreme stickiness (that's the THC sticking to pistils, making crystals called trichomes. High concentrations of trichomes will make bud look frosty) and tranquil weight (you get "glued" to wherever you smoked it). When rolled up or sparked in a bowl, GG4 emits plumes of earthy smoke. Its use promotes cerebral sedation. This potent, indica-dominant hybrid almost never happened; Gorilla Glue, the mother strain kicking off the celebrated family tree, was a surprise baby. A hermaphrodite Chem Sis (the sativa-dominant Chemdawg variation) pollinated a chatty Sour Dubb. Growers crossed the seeds born of that with heady Chocolate Diesel, thus bringing this powerful, dreamy strain into orbit. GG4 took home second place in Best Hybrid Flower at the 2016 Colorado Cannabis Cup, its win spilling into a welcomed 2017 pervasiveness. GG4, like GSC, suffered a copyright infringement lawsuit spearheaded by glue brand Gorilla Glue, forcing its name change. (GG Strains and the adhesive company settled in October.) Just a shame its alternative moniker, Trump's Hair Glue No. 4, has yet to catch on.
