Bigger, Badder, Beastly Buds
Coming to us from the illustrious and generous genetics of award-winning THC powerhouse Gorilla Glue #4 and the swift Sativa/Indica hybrid Critical Diesel Auto - herself a calculated cross between industry legends Critical and Auto Diesel - Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Autoflower is a marijuana marvel for a million reasons.
This incredible hybrid strain combines the best of her storied genetic lineage, delivering a crave-inducing flavor profile, the kind of aroma you want to live in, insane resin production, unusually enormous yields (for an auto) and biblical levels of THC.
Alongside being a high THC strain, this ganja gem has a respectable level of CBD cannabinoids in the mix, helping to provide Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Auto with notably excellent recreational and therapeutic properties.
Aside from truly iconic genetics (which also include the likes of Skunk, Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, NYC Diesel and Chocolate Diesel when you dig further back), this swift-flowering Sativa is a true marijuana master at banishing foul moods and tantalizing the tastebuds with decadent and delicious tangs while those rich cannabinoids get to work doing what they do best.
It’s a rare thing indeed to find a strain with such an exquisite and complementary blend of beloved genetics, but Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Auto is that diamond in the rough.
For the cannabis connoisseurs, it doesn’t get much better than this. And for those with low THC tolerance and a hankering for unforgettable flavors and developing their experience with hard-hitting high THC strain, approach this wild bud beast with a healthy caution or you’ll be glued to the couch for hours on end (which could well happen even among you seasoned smokers, too!).
Of course, being autoflowering cannabis seeds, this extremely potent Sativa specimen is within reach of growers without vast experience behind them, proving to be an easily grown, hardy and high-yielding strain well worth your attention - which also makes her a fan favorite among commercial cultivators.
Flavor and Fragrance of Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Auto
Get ready for a cannabis cornucopia of flavorful and fragrant delights with this hybrid, which embodies all the best traits of her famed parentage.
From the Gorilla Glue side of the family, ample doses of caryophyllene, limonene and myrcene terpenes help to deliver the quintessential fuel-like notes GG #4 is famed for, alongside those subtler hints of chocolate and coffee.
As with most strains coming from the Skunk family, that pungent hit on the nose and tongue is often the most prominently detected note, however, it is not without accompaniment.
The likes of those limonene terps add a delightful hint of fresh fruits into this mix which, while possibly more challenging to identify than the dominating diesely tones, add decadent and unmissable nuances to this champion cannabis strain.
This is certainly one for the connoisseurs with a sensitive palate, though that’s not to say this fantastic flavor and aroma profile isn’t for everyone - though perhaps steer clear if those skunky diesely strains aren’t to your liking.
As you should expect from such a widely varied genetic lineage, Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 brings to bear an artful blend of Indica and Sativa influence on the user, and thanks to an average THC of 22% or more, it’s an effect which wastes no time getting to work.
After a mere few tokes, it’s possible to feel that quintessential Sativa buzz creeping on, charging the mind with a euphoric buzz famed for instant feelings of mood elevation and a sense of serenity and happiness.
Take advantage of that socially stimulating buzz while it lasts though, because soon the powerfully sedative influence starts to kick in, stretching through the entire body and compelling even the most seasoned of smokers to the couch.
Together, these attributes make Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Auto a fairly perfect pot companion for a Netflix and chong session, especially with a bunch of fellow toker friends by your side!
While the sedation may be powerful, don’t think for a second that the initial euphoria is going to fade - oh no, most certainly not. Prep yourself with a zone of pure comfort, equipped with entertainment, company and snacks, and you’ll be in sheer marijuana-inspired bliss mind, body and soul until the inevitable drowsiness calls you off to the land of nod (for one hell of a rejuvenating rest, at that!).
Medical Uses of Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Autoflower

From Critical x Gorilla Glue #4’s ability to instantly uplift even the foulest moods to her prolonged sedative influence and tendency to incite one seriously chronic case of the munchies, it’s not a wonder why those with adequate THC tolerance can see huge psychological and physical benefits from this particular hybrid strain.
Between potent analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anxiolytic properties, this genetic superstar is a highly effective treatment for everything from mild to severe pain, stress, depression or other mental conditions, insomnia and even the potentially devastating after-effects of chemotherapy.
Whether your malady is physical or of the mind, Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Auto could well hold the keys to a healthier and happier you, banishing woes and dread, muting the pain of body and mind that holds us back.
Of course, with such a high THC content, it’s essential to pay close attention to dosage control if you want to avoid any of marijuana’s less desirable side-effects.
Growing Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Autoflower Seeds
The autoflowering nature of these beans means that growing Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Auto comes with inherently easier steps than photoperiod strains, which require careful attention towards light cycles for optimal results.
This hybrid will flower regardless of how much light she receives, and as an added bonus, proves remarkably resilient to common plant-related problems such as mold or diseases, which can spell the end of crops if growers aren’t careful.
Given these worries aren’t ever a concern with Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Auto, these plants should be relatively simple for even the more novice cultivators to see great results with (and boy, are they great!), however, there are some key points you need to know before diving in head-first with this beautiful beast.
First, keep in mind the GG #4 genetics at play here, which have passed onto their pot progeny the habit of producing enormous and exceptionally resinous buds. While it seems to be that this hardy hybrid is more than capable of holding her own weight, you’ll want to keep an eye out and make sure your plants aren’t struggling as those hefty buds start swelling.
The absurd quantities of resinous trichomes Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Auto develops can also make managing these plants a bit challenging. This will likely be most relevant when harvesting your buds and finding your fingers glued together by the stickiness, however, it can also pose certain difficulties during the cultivation period.
While it’s not advisable to employ High Stress Training (HST) techniques with these ladies (such as cropping or topping), opting for Low Stress Training (LST) measures can help maximize your plants’ potential - provided you can handle that stickiness, of course, so brush up on your cannabis plant training techniques!
Generally speaking, Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 plants tend to remain under 1.5 meters tall and perform best in indoor setups where you have more control over environmental factors like temperature and relative humidity (RH).
Many growers report that using the Sea of Green technique is an incredibly effective way to see the best possible results with these ladies, helping your crop make the most of all available space and develop maximum budding sites.
Experts also suggest adding roughly 30% coco coir to your plants’ soil and watering the plants frequently but not overly generously so as to maintain a damp 1 to 2 inches of topsoil.
Overall, you’re looking at 9 to 10 weeks from seed to harvest, at which point indoor growers can expect between 450 and 500 grams per meter squared. Outdoor growers who’ve treated their crop to a warm climate with adequate sun exposure, meanwhile, can reap between 100 and 200 grams per plant for their efforts.
This monstrously beautiful marijuana is the culmination of too many epic and perennially popular strains to reel off, and does justice to each and every one of those famed parents every time, without fail.
The cultivation process is far from complicated, but will require some preparation and knowledge on your side to see best results come harvest time.
More than a mere recreational delight of fuel-like tones with citric nuances and potent psychoactive properties, the therapeutic applications of Critical x Gorilla Glue #4 Autoflower are practically limitless (for those who can handle such high THC content, that is!).
