“…thanks to Marrdog and lady luck”, says the accidental grower of the Gorilla Glue strain, Josey Whales. Here’s the whole story behind the Gorilla Glue strain, as Whales recollects:
A few years ago i was growing sour dubb and chem sister and some others, the chem sis threw a couple nanners and hit the sour dubb, i held those seeds for a year or so and finally popped 5 of them, they were ok, really had one nice pheno but i lost it in a security scare, the other 4 pheno’s all hermed on me and totally seeded my whole stadium run, i was pissed, i got rid of all of it to a friend, marrdog. he kept a lot of the seeds and about a year later we had a joint grow going and he popped i believe it was 6 of those seeds, i was really concerned that they would herm and didn’t have much hope for them, they were all female, we ended up with pheno’s 1 2 4 and one we called the runt, all were outstanding, the clear winner though was the gg 4. so thanks to marrdog and lady luck.
Very interesting, right?

Effects of the Gorilla Glue #4 strain is immediately visible, after exhaling. A blogger writing about his experiences with the same on Cannabis Chronicles blog says:
The effects of GG #4 are noticeable immediately after exhaling, at first, I felt it mostly in my head and face. This strain might be called Gorilla Glue, but I felt more like Droopy (which was my fake “chola” name in jr. high, which is weird because I never smoked then and I wasn’t a chola). The more I smoked, the more chill I felt, and soon I had a full on body high that lasted over an hour. My eyes don’t really get red or give off that “I LOOK HIGH” look much anymore, but I felt like my eyes were SO low. (Source)
