Regular Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez Seeds
Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez can be described in one word - powerful. Before even the actual consumption, it already announces its presence with a pungent odor that quickly fills the room. Meanwhile, it does not disappoint in its effects as it delivers an intense wave of cerebral euphoria before leaving one in complete relaxation.
In the garden, the plants resilience and monster bud production make this highly coveted regardless of skill level. Regular seeds are available at Homegrown Cannabis Co.
The aftermath of the collision between two remarkable strains - Gorilla Glue #4 (GG4) and Zkittlez - is a heavy-handed sedating hybrid. Boasting of some 20-24% THC, it is not one for the faint of heart.
More than the profound body stone, this hybrid also delivers a fantastic cerebral experience. GG4, for instance, is well-known for taking people on a soaring high before a couch-locking bliss. Such traits have won it the first prize at the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup held in Jamaica.
Zkittlez, itself, is no slouch. This Indica-leaning strain is also a winner of the Indica category of the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup.
This award-winning combination took 1st place at the 2016 Emerald Cup and 1st Place Indica at the 2015 Cannabis Cups held in San Francisco. Moreover, it also won first place at the 2016 Emerald Cup.
Although there were other considerations in producing regular seeds made available at Homegrown Cannabis Co., the cross served to take preserve the most of the GG4 genotype with the addition of the sweet, berry flavors of Zkittlez.
Starting from regular seeds do have one disadvantage if the purpose is to harvest the buds - a 50/50 male to female turnout. Not for breeders and hardcore connoisseurs, though. For it is only through this type of seeds that the plants could grow to be as close to being a duplicate of the original mother plant.
Growing Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez Regular
Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez is generally easy to cultivate. It is resilient in the face of adversities like strong winds, cold temperatures, and will not break off easily at the weight of dense buds - and it sure can produce monster yields of sparkling crystal-coated nugs.
Even so, this plant entails work in ensuring that lower branches are well-maintained to allow for sufficient air flow. As is the case with most standard indoor grow rooms, plants placed side-by-side restricts the circulation of air and thus could cause moisture to build up. Consequently, not only does it hinder the transpiration process but also encourage the growth of molds.
For Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez, using organic soil works best for one reason - terpenes. An immediate benefit is that it would have a far richer flavor than using hydroponics. A more compelling reason, though, is that a much-enhanced terpene profile contributes to the synergy effects between the cannabinoids apart from bringing along its set of therapeutic benefits.
Alternatively, going soilless is a viable option if the goal is to maximize the growth and coax as much as possible out of the plants to produce the highest yield.
In either choice of growing medium, the habitat itself is usually kept at 21 to 27 degrees Celsius. Its appearance could also take on a more beautiful coloration. Exposing it to colder temperature (not more than 10 degrees lower than its daytime temp) brings out gorgeous purple hues.
One of the advantages of starting Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez from regular seeds offered by Homegrown Cannabis Co. is that it is the only way to preserve the genetics of this hybrid. For personal consumption, a feminized or auto-flowering strain might make more sense - on the surface, that is.
While it is true that for the purpose of harvesting buds, males turning up is a risk to the females, as well as a waste, it is also the best option to identifying the healthies and more ideal female for cloning. It is only through plants started from regular seeds that could be as nearly identical as the mother plant as nature allows. Consequently, the female clones could be placed under the Sea of Green set up. More than limitless virtually limitless harvests, the buds are also more consistent with regards to high quality and impressive yields. The flowering period takes 8 to 9 weeks. Under 600 watts HID (HPS or LED), it could produce as much as 600 grams per square meter.
Outdoors, Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez flexes its muscles under a warm climate by producing a whopping 1000 grams per plant.
Fragrance and Flavor
Exuding flavors of earth, grape, and honey, Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez is a delicious blend meant to impress the palate of aficionados. The cured flowers also constitute sweet and sour flavors with a candy-like quality.
The psychoactive traits of this hybrid come in two ways - one after the other. Much like the original GG4, it pounds the head with a euphoric high that instantly uplifts the spirit. It could also come as an intense buzzing that further enhance the senses and heightens sensitivity to surroundings.
Once the physical effects swarm into the body, the profound sedating sensation melts away tensions. In turn, the relaxing high further enhances the mood to usher in the sense of happiness.
In small to moderate dose, the Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez experience is incredibly cerebral before the initial surge of energizing buzz settles down into a potentially couch-locking sedated feel.
A higher dose, on the other hand, could bring in some complications. Instead of merely having dry, red eyes and cottonmouth, overwhelming exposure to THC could incite anxiousness or paranoia.
Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez is a tasty remedy for medical patients. It contains more than enough therapeutic compounds to help manage different psychological and physiological conditions.
One of the psychoactive effects of this strain is to induce a euphoric head high that uplifts the overall mental state of an individual. It is for this reason that many use this herb as a means to de-stress from a hectic lifestyle. More than that, its anxiolytic properties are a great source of relief for those struggling to manage the debilitating symptoms of anxiety. It also has anti-depressant properties to help cope with that condition.
On a physical level, both its analgesic and painkilling features make GG4 x Zkittlez an ideal, natural alternative to opioids and other prescription drugs. From soothing sensations to melting away pains, this hybrid can offer a reprieve and thus improve the quality of life of chronically-ill patients.
Feeling highly relaxed is an understatement. Once the Indica side takes over the body, it delivers a sedating high that also induces drowsiness - of which it is beneficial to people suffering from sleep disorders.
