Gorilla Cookies Strain
- Dry Eyes
- Dry Mouth
In the world of cannabis, much is made of the potency and effects of specific strains. But when it comes to Gorilla Cookies, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more perfect example of this than in the Bay Area heavyweight. Combining Gorilla Glue #4 and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies genetics, Elev8 Seeds has created a heavy-hitter that won’t leave you disappointed despite its low THC levels at 19%.
This strain originated in the Sierra Nevada foothills of California, where Brian and Becky Goggin began their family business. The dynamic duo had an eye for detail, creativity and enthusiasm when breeding marijuana genetics in the mid-1990s. They first crossed Gorilla Glue #4 with Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies just one year ago. The hybrid strain has already become a mainstay for Elev8 Seeds and a new favorite of medical cannabis patients all over California.
The cerebral effects of Gorilla Cookies include an indica-like sense of deep body relaxation and an increase in focus. There is also the added benefit of a euphoric and uplifting sensation.
The physical effects tend to be quite strong thanks to its potency, but there is also strong muscle relaxation. Therefore, it can also be used to treat instances when you want to relax or look for relief from both physical pains from chronic illnesses such as arthritis and treating nausea.
The adverse effects of Gorilla Cookies are quite mild and include dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth. The high is quite powerful at a deficient level of potency. Growing this strain is quite easy, and it is recommended that Gorilla Cookies be planted indoors. It is just like its parent plants in that it grows wide and has smallish, light green buds with lots of bright orange hairs covering them.
This strain has very dense buds, which are rather loose even though they are hard buds. The leaves on the plant are incredibly thick and have a reddish appearance, making it easier to keep bugs away from the plant. It flowers in about 60 days. The smell is distinctively piney, making the smoking experience that much more enjoyable.
