Many growers and cannabis enthusiasts hold a special place in their hearts for Gorilla Glue Auto-Flower. This variety has become famous over the last few years thanks to its power and high production standards. The large quantities of resin, and the resulting high THC content, attract both experts and amateurs in the field.

Gorilla Glue Auto is one of our best-selling seeds, and this doesn’t surprise us in the least. After all, Gorilla Glue #4, the parent plant, is renowned for its knockout strength, so a version with auto-flower genetics was always going to be something out of the ordinary.

Its origins are undeniably impressive. Gorilla Glue #4 was developed by the legendary Mardogg and Joesy Whales who went on to win the Michigan HighTimes Best Hybrid among other awards. Since then, connoisseurs of cannabis have considered it to be one of the finest hybrids.

Developers at FastBuds had the opportunity of trying the Gorilla Glue #4, and they were blown away by that strain; so, after receiving the original clone of the impressive strain at a Californian event, they couldn’t wait to start the research to add it to their auto-flower catalogue.

How to grow the Gorilla Glue Auto
Gorilla Glue Auto is an easy plant to grow. It just asks to be well fertilized and it will reward you with impressive yields. Gorilla Glue Auto adapts well to both indoor and outdoor cultivation or grown in a greenhouse. Its growing cycle is pleasingly quick, taking about two and a half months to go from germination to harvest. Most specimens develop dense, resinous flowers, loaded with large, sticky trichomes.

Even novice growers can reap good results. Gorilla Glue Auto seeds grow into medium-sized plants that are forgiving of occasional mistakes. If you are a complete novice to smoking the beloved weed, though, you should exercise some caution when smoking it for the first time as it is exceptionally strong!

Gorilla Glue Auto is a marijuana seed perfect for indoor and outdoor growth because it has a branched structure with many side branches at the same height, which also respond well to occasional pruning. Its buds are solid and covered with copious amounts of resin, the result of the high percentage of THC it contains.

If you treat it well, it will thank you with its incredible productivity. It makes so much sticky resin that you won’t know where to start cutting! It is called Gorilla Glue because this resin sticks like glue to pruning clippers.

The main thing you have to take into consideration is to avoid stressing the Gorilla Glue so that it can develop to its full potential. This means not forgetting to water it and planting it straight into a big container, rather than potting it on. Waiting for a vegetative phase of three weeks is recommended. Still, as it is an autoflower, you won’t need to worry about altering the number of hours of light it receives during the various phases of its lifecycle. We recommend using large containers of up to 50 litres outdoors to optimise your growing. If growing indoors, we recommend using light bulbs from 600 to 1000 watts per square metre.

When cultivating Gorilla Glue Auto seeds, you can expect full flowering within about two and a half months. Indoor and outdoor cultivation should yield about five ounces of good weed per plant.

This may sound a bit disappointing, but it is important to note that auto-flowering seeds have a reputation for producing smaller quantities than regular seeds. This is because they reach the flowering phase in much less time. However, although the yields may not be as generous, the quality of the weed is as good as any regular seeds.

Taste and effect
The effects of Gorilla Glue Auto have to be experienced to be believed and is one of our strongest strains of weed. With equal genetics from Chem’s Sister and Chocolate Diesel, Gorilla Glue is a notoriously heavy-hitting weed. These strains help give Gorilla Glue a sedative effect so that it can be used as a natural tranquiliser thanks to its powerful analgesic properties. It uplifts your mood while keeping you relaxed. The hit starts with a potent euphoric sensation which turns into an existential state of relaxation that inevitably leads to couch-lock.

Gorilla Glue Auto’s taste is enjoyably earthy with slight hints of pine, citrus and chocolate. Those of you who seek relaxation with euphoric sensations and feelings of physical heaviness will be more than satisfied by this heady Sativa/Indica blend. In the manner of the best type of weed, its effects gradually increase, leading to a kind of brainstorm – it’s not for the faint-hearted!

During the flowering phase, you will start to notice the pleasant aroma of bitter lemon, pine and diesel that Gorilla Glue Auto gives off. It will make you impatient to get to harvest, but the drying and curing phases shouldn’t be rushed!

Side effects
With up to 28% THC, Gorilla Glue delivers a very powerful high. It’s a 50-50 Indica/Sativa hybrid. This means that you are likely to experience couch-lock as well as feelings of euphoria and relaxation. The munchies are also a common side effect.

Most people enjoy Gorilla Glue Auto without any harmful side effects, but you may experience dry eyes, feelings of paranoia and ‘cotton mouth’. If you experience paranoia, it’s a good idea to stop smoking weed, at least for a while. It’s not for everyone.

The medical benefits of Gorilla Glue Auto
Gorilla Glue Auto is increasingly used by many people to treat a range of medical conditions. If taken moderately in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, Gorilla Glue Auto can help alleviate symptoms of many chronic diseases.

Gorilla Glue Auto also causes significant spikes in your appetite, which benefits people who are underweight because of small appetite, or after receiving chemotherapy or radiotherapy to treat cancer.

Some medical uses for Gorilla Glue Auto include nausea, chronic pain, cramps, gum disease, joint pain, headaches, stress, depression, nervousness, and anxiety.
