Gorilla is a feminised, Indica-dominant cannabis strain with roots in the USA, where she stands in very high-esteem. These hybrid genetics can stand toe-to-toe with some of the best Indica grown on the planet and come out victorious, as was evident in the 2014 Los Angeles Cup and High Times Jamaican World Cup. And she definitely stays true to her legendary Chem heritage, due to her enticing aromatic profile and an effect worthy of delivering a knock-out blow to a Silverback Gorilla itself.
An accidental cross-pollination is believed to be behind this marvellous mix of Chocolate Diesel x Chem Sister X Sour Dubb. Gorilla looks distinctly hybrid-like – medium-large in size, average spacing between nodes and leaves that are light-green in colour.
She yields plentiful, round nuggets that are weighty, super-compact and gorgeously aromatic. Ever heard of "Gorilla Glue"? That name was given to reflect the colossal amount of gooey trichomes produced by Gorilla strains. Her flowers are extremely eye-catching – light-green and covered in sticky trichomes to give the impression she’s just been dusted with sugar.
Owing to her Diesel and Chem roots, expect powerful fuel qualities and intense earthiness, along with more tanginess than Sour Diesel. Add to this her famed terpene profile, especially caryophyllene and humulene, and the end result is a sure winner.
With THC reaching up to 20% and minimal CBD, Gorilla delivers an absolute hammer-blow. Perfect for experienced consumers, who appreciate Indica effects.
Gorilla is quite forgiving and easy-growing to those with at least basic cannabis cultivation knowledge. Most important is that she’s not overfed and, due to low moisture-resistance, not over- or under-watered. So, water a little less but a bit more often. Her upper reaches will thrive and grow vigorously, if lower leaves and branches are trimmed.
