Perfect for: Mind-blowing Indica lovers looking for unconventional and complex US flavours.
Gorilla is a highly acclaimed feminised cannabis seed in the USA. Descendant of the Chem family, she definitely lives up to her origins with an off-the-charts potency and aroma. This Indica-dominant hybrid has the potential to keep the purest Indica genetics off the podium, as she doubly demonstrated at the Los Angeles Cup and at the High Times Jamaican World Cup in 2014 when she won both of them. Her bag appeal is simply astounding and her light-green flowers seem almost sugar-frosted due to the breathtaking trichomes covering them. Don't be fooled by her hybrid-looking structure, though, for her Indica effect is as strong as a blow delivered by a huge silverback gorilla.
Gorilla is an Indica-dominant hybrid (60%) derived from the cross of Chocolate Diesel, Chem Sister, and Sour Dubb. The cross is said to have happened quite fortuitously when a Sour Dubb female was accidentally pollinated by a male Chem Sister. With regard to her aspect, she looks exactly like a hybrid would: medium/large structure with mid-sized internodes and light-green leaves. But don’t let her appearance deceive you. Even though our eyes can’t perceive it, her Indica essence comes out as soon as we consume her.
Gorilla is a heavy yielder. Her greatest asset is her resin count: she produces lots of enormous sticky trichomes, hence the name Gorilla Glue. We cannot fail to mention the ball-shaped, super-dense, heavy, smelly and resin-packed buds she's capable of producing, which end up in fact covered in a striking whitey colouring when they fully ripe.
Apart from a clear example of extreme quality, the resulting crop has amazing bag appeal, with loads of beautiful, tight and light-green nuggets dusted with shiny trichomes. In short, one of those genetics that instantly grab our attention when a transparent bag full of weed is placed right before our eyes.
Aromas and flavours
Gorilla showcases very complex but greatly intense flavours and aromas. Coming from a Diesel and a Chem, a strong fuelly aroma with pungent earthy notes is obviously found in her. Similar to a Sour Diesel, but with more intense sour nuances. This strain is also famous for the high number of terpenes she produces, mostly caryophyllene and humulene terpenes.
Gorilla delivers a super-potent high due to her THC levels of up to 20%. With almost no cannabidiol (CBD) in her, she’s suitable for those who are used to coping with strong cannabis. The feeling provoked by her largely Indica effect tends to be compared with the smack given by a huge gorilla. That is to say: devastating.
Gorilla is not a demanding plant. Growing her is rather easy, but some basic knowledge is certainly required. Particularly with regard to the use of fertilisers: this strain cannot be overfed. That’s why a standard diet is much preferred. Her not being especially resistant to moisture, or to the lack of water, means that the best thing we can do is irrigate moderately on a regular basis. And, of course, we do recommend pruning her, concentrating mostly on the lower leaves and branches so that the upper part can have enough strength and energy to thrive.
Total amount of cannabinoids*: 18.55%
*Cannabis contains at least 113 cannabinoids, which can be either acidic or neutral. When heated – e.g. through smoking, vaping or cooking – acidic cannabinoids decarboxylate and become neutral. This report refers only to the main cannabinoids – acidic and neutral – in this strain.
Total amount of terpenes*: 1.685%
*Cannabis contains over 100 terpenes. These compounds create the aroma unique to each strain and can interact with cannabinoids. This report refers only to the 15 most abundant terpenes in this strain.
These results have been obtained by liquid chromatography coupled to a UV-visible HPLC Detector (HPLC-UV/VIS) for identifying the cannabinoids and by gas chromatography coupled to a flame ionization detector (GC-FID) for the collection of terpenes. The equipment has been previously calibrated and quality control samples were run to assure the accuracy of the results. The data shown here is the average of samples coming from several plants grown from seeds by different growers.
The data contained within this report was collected in accordance with the requirements defined by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in their Recommended Methods for the Identification and Analysis of Cannabis and Cannabis Products. We hereby attest that the information contained within the report has been reviewed for accuracy and checked against the quality control requirements for each method.
