Couch-locking Highs Meets Extreme Flavor
A commanding presence even before you light up, Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez Regular is a powerful hybrid strain that combines the very best properties of her parents to create a flavorful delight that packs a punch.
Breeding together the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup winner Zkittlez with Gorilla Glue #4 (which won the same award in 2014) was always going to be a stroke of genius. The resultant pot progeny is a heavy-hitting hero of 20% to 24% THC, and not one for a newbie.
Pungent and pleasant in odor, the scent that greets you with this hybrid is both earthy and fruity, hinting at grapes as she draws you in to light up. When you do, this flavor becomes amplified, filling your mouth with sweet honey and berry tastes that roll around the mouth like a fine wine.
While you’re savoring the flavor, this hybrid's cerebral head-high will quickly take over, lifting your mood to deliver an intense euphoric wave before relaxing you from head to toe.
With regular seeds, you’ll have to weed out the pesky males with this strain - but other than that, these plants look after themselves fairly well. Growing Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez isn’t too much of a chore, and though she needs some trimming to encourage air circulation, she’s resilient in most manners and will flower quickly to produce whopping yields of 600 grams per plant.

In smaller doses, Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez Reg will have an intense, generally cerebral effect that begins with a buzz of energy to the brain before washing away your worries and pulling you right down into the warm, comfy couch with a dose of sedation.
If you choose to toke a little more, you can enjoy the euphoric head high of the GG4 ancestry at play, your spirit instantly uplifted and your senses heightened to enhance the fizzy, buzzing feeling of Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez… The physical effects will soon follow, melting away tightness and tension in the limbs, relaxing you into a heavy, happy state of sedation and elation at once.
As Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez is fairly heavy on the THC, it’s better to err on the side of moderation with a joint of this stuff, since higher dosages are likely to induce complications such as increased anxiousness and paranoid - and that’s alongside the usual side effects of cottonmouth and dry, red eyes.
Medical Uses of Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittles Regular
You won’t need a spoonful of sugar to help this medicine go down, as Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez is a particularly tasty strain for patients looking to marijuana for therapeutic reasons.
A toke of this strain will bring on a head-high that swiftly sends you soaring into euphoria due to the Sativa leanings, which unsurprisingly lifts a mental load off and improves the mental state of anyone consuming these buds for recreational or medicinal purposes. As such, Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez is an effective way of dealing with everyday stresses and worries, and given that she also boasts anxiolytic benefits, she’s also an effective herb for the treatment of anxiety. This, plus her antidepressant properties make this hybrid a sure hit with anyone struggling with low mood and depression, too.
For more physical ailments, Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez contains analgesic elements that are an effective natural alternative to traditionally prescribed pain relief medications. By soothing and easing away aches and pains, this cannabis can provide welcome relief from the symptoms of arthritis and migraines.
Due to the sedating Indica influence, these buds have also been found to provide aid to insomniacs who struggle to sleep, as they'll bring on a sleepy drowsiness that leads you into a deep and restorative sleep.
Growing Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittles Regular
Sturdy and resilient, Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez Regular is fairly easy to cultivate even in colder temperatures or windy climates due to her strong central cola, and won’t easily break under the weight of her own gorgeously dense, crystal-coated nugs.
That being said, since she’s a bushy specimen and she’s fairly tall at up to 170cm, so will require some pruning and trimming around the lower branches. This is because she requires good airflow and light to thrive, and these restrictive lower branches can reduce the circulation of air, allowing moisture and even mold to build up if left alone.
Although growers may find hydroponics will give you the most explosive growth with Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez, we would recommend using organic soil instead. Organic soil is full of a variety of nutrients that will massively benefit the final terpene profile of the plant, providing a far fuller flavor and contributing to the therapeutic benefits of the strain by synergizing with the cannabinoids. Whether you choose to go soilless or organic really depends on what you want from your final yield.
Growers should allow plenty of space for the heavy foliage of Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez Regular, and keep these plants in an environment with temperatures between 21° and 27°C. If you’re wanting to increase the bag appeal of the buds by bringing out those lovely lavender hues, then exposing your plants to colder nighttime temperatures (no more than 10 degrees lower) will do the trick.
Since these are regular seeds, the natural genetics of Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez will be preserved for future use - but do remember that if your intent is a harvest for consumption, you’ll need to remove the males in order to avoid pollination.
Expect around 8 to 9 weeks flowering time overall, and consider that these plants will fare better under a 600 watt HPS/LED growing lamp to ensure they gets the light they need. Treat her nicely and take care of her trimming, and you can expect a nice healthy harvest of 600 grams per plant. Dare to test her resilience outdoors (a warm, Meditteranean climate is best) and you might even push that yield up to 1000 grams of buds per plant.
Combining Cannabis Cup winners was a stroke of genius, and breeders have outdone themselves with the hybrid strain that is Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez Regular. A gorgeous green specimen of flavor and power, she’s a strain to be reckoned with.
Filling the mouth with the flavors of berries and honey, this fruity beauty is sure to draw in even the most skeptical of smokers with her divine earthy grape scents and tongue-coating smoke. But her delights don’t end with your palate, as Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez’s high is a cerebral, psychoactive journey into euphoria that ends in a buzzing body-stone that melts you into a dreamy, relaxed state of sheer bliss.
This immense ability to relax even the most knotted, tense muscles is what makes this strain so effective at pain relief - that and her potent analgesic properties. With physical pain gone from the body, those struggling with anxiety and depression can enjoy the relief brought on by a toke or two of Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez, clearing the mind of intrusive, negative thoughts to provide uninhibited mental freedom in moments.
Weeding out the males with regular seeds is the most complex part of Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez’s growing process, and for an experienced grower, that’s no issue at all.
