A Sativa of Sticky-Sour Sensation and Sedation
If her bright green buds and abundant sticky resin weren’t warning enough, let us tell you - this is one punch-packing, potent, psychoactive plant.
Gorilla Glue Lemon Feminized is the hybrid lovechild of two infamous, award-winning strains - Cannabis Cup winners, Gorilla Glue and Lemon Haze. By combining the sleepy high of the former with the lively Sativa kick of the latter, this strain boasts crazy levels of THC (around 27%) with mouthwatering citrus flavors to produce a cannabis strain that’s beyond comparison.
Think freshly squeezed lemons and smooth earthy smoke, and you’ll have a good idea of the taste and scent of this potent beauty. As refreshing in flavor as she is invigorating - you’ll struggle to resist coming back for more.
Absolutely oozing with sticky resin, it’s not hard to see why Gorilla G Lemon’s high is so prized amongst the cannabis community, known for the rollercoaster of euphoria she takes you on, pulling you up and up until you crash down into a calm relaxation that eases the mind and the muscles into inevitable couchlock, then slumber.
Medicinal marijuana consumers will find that the intense head high and soothing euphoria of this specimen are particularly effective for dealing with mental disorders that focus on overthinking, anxiety and hyperactivity, and as such she’s a super strain for easing symptoms of OCD, ADHD and PTSD.
Growing this ganja is not for beginners, though. Gorilla Glue Lemon Fem boasts the high-yielding characteristics of her Lemon Haze Sativa parentage - and is surely worthy of the energy and expenditure of creating an optimal environment - but she’s a tad too fussy for newbies or first-time growers.
Flavor and Fragrance of Gorilla Glue Lemon
As you’d expect from any strain with a Lemon Haze parent, Gorilla G Lemon Fem is particularly notable for her citrus scent and lemon flavor.
Pungent in aroma, the Haze scent comes through strongly with a toke of this stuff, mixing pine and earthy notes to artfully underpin her fresh, lemon tang. Her flavor, however, differs slightly - still fruity but with a spicy, earthen kick that serves to boost the freshly squeezed lemon taste that’s both bitter and sour whilst smooth to inhale.
When you see that THC levels can reach 29% with Gorilla Glue Lemon Fem, you know you’re in for the high of a lifetime. Not for the faint of heart or the workaholic types, this hybrid is a beast of a ride.
As with most Sativa strains, taking a toke will kickstart the mind into an uplifting, energy surge of a cerebral high in just a minute or two, quickly developing into the euphoric giggle fits you’d expect from a strain with strong Haze parentage.
This happy high will grow and grow until it peaks into a sedating, couch-locking numbness that will arrive with no warning and creep up on you. Drawing on her Indica Gorilla Glue roots, this strain will swiftly envelop you in a calmness that serves to soothe the senses and ease you down into a peaceful sleep of no comparison. Not for a workday or even a weekday, this is a weekend strain only - one for long after the days’ chores have been completed.
Since the THC in this strain is so high, Gorilla Glue Lemon Fem can be easily overconsumed to produce side effects of a most unpleasant nature. Bouts of anxiety, paranoia or even greening out (sometimes known as a whitey) could occur when dosing beyond the recommended amount. To avoid such occurrences, try to stick to low dosages and build up gradually as you acclimate to her effects.
Even so, newbies: this is not for you. The effects can be far too overwhelming, so approach with caution.
Other milder side effects worth considering are cottonmouth, dry eyes and dizziness - we recommend staying hydrated throughout to avoid this.
Medical Uses of Gorilla Glue Lemon Feminized
Crazy high THC levels and a fast-hitting, long-lasting high make GG Lemon a potent therapeutic cannabis strain that acts as an excellent alternative for ailments of both the body and mind.

Growing Gorilla Glue Lemon Feminized
If you’re reading this page and thinking of cultivating this is as first grow - think again.

Though she’s a mostly Indica strain, Gorilla Glue Lemon’s growth characteristics are more Sativa in nature, and as such she’s a tall one, stretching up to 200cm if given the space - so she might do better in an outdoor environment: maybe a warm, sunny climate with pleasant temperatures.
If you’re determined to grow her indoors, do make sure that she has the vertical space to reach for the stars, as her towering foliage will grow far better with room to maneuver and plenty of light. If you think this could be an issue, you can always try the Screen of Green technique (ScroG) to encourage her branches to grow outward rather than upward - and this will expose your plants to better light, which is sure to drastically improve the final yield of between 400 to 500 grams per plant in 8 to 9 weeks.

Growing Gorilla Glue Lemon Fem isn’t easy, but if a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well.
