Gorilla Glue #5 — also known under the name GG5 — is an indica-dominant cannabis hybrid with an indica/sativa ratio of 70%/30%. Created through crossing the famous Gorilla Glue #1 with Gorilla Glue #4 marijuana strains, the #5 type of this bud comes with more power than both of its ancestors. Staying true to its name, the Gorilla Glue #5 marijuana strain will have you glued to your couch for the next few hours in a state of total relaxation.
The hybrid comes with a very impressive level of THC reaching up to 28% in some batches. Because of its high concentrations of this psychoactive cannabinoid, Gorilla Glue #5 will leave you completely body-melted in no time after taking the first few puffs. With its heavy diesel aroma accentuated with some spicy undertones, the Gorilla Glue #5 strain is also recognized not only for its pungent odor, but also flavor, which stays in the mouth long after you’re done smoking the bud.
Gorilla Glue #5 grows minty green buds that are generously coated with brightly colored orange and amber pistils. A heavy layer of bright and crystal trichomes makes the strain’s bag appeal even more alluring.
With such intriguing characteristics, you’re probably wondering what effects to expect. After smoking Gorilla Glue #5, you will definitely feel strongly couch-locked with a heavy feeling of being hungry and weighed down. If this is what you’re looking for, this insane hybrid will leave you satisfied to the fullest. Beware, though, as the effects are far more trippy and powerful than you probably think.
At first, the Gorilla Glue #5 marijuana strain gives you an initial rush of giggles, fun, and excitement. Additionally, you will feel utterly relaxed and these body effects will make their way throughout your body in no time. As the high continues, you will feel heavier, more relaxed and a bit sleepy. Thus, if there is anything you’re planning for the day, make sure to deal with it before the smoking session, as it will definitely make you less motivated when it comes to more energy-consuming tasks.
Gorilla Glue #5 comes with a range of medical benefits, too. Due to its sedating and relaxing properties, the hybrid may be a great choice for those dealing with insomnia. Moreover, this indica-dominant strain comes with strong pain-relieving properties, helping patients deal with chronic pain, headaches, and migraines. Additionally, the Gorilla Glue #5 strain may be perfect for alleviating symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress, and fatigue. With its appetite increasing properties, the flower is invaluable for eating disorders, lack of appetite, and more. If you’re a novice user, make sure to keep the dosage in moderation, as the strain may be overwhelming and make you feel dizzy or even anxious.
