Gorilla Zkittlez Strain Genetics
The Gorilla Zkittlez lineage combines the epic, high THC Gorilla Glue #4 (Chem’s Sister x Sour Dubb x Chocolate Diesel – also known as GG4) and the sweet and fruity dream that is Zkittlez (Grape Ape x Grapefruit). These two seed bank favourites have gifted many of their best traits onto Gorilla Zkittlez marijuana seeds.
This proud herbal offspring of two Cannabis Cup winning, West Coast Cali cannabis strains has inherited trichome covered buds, deep and potent effects, and a delightful explosion of flavours and aromas that will capture your tastebuds and heart simultaneously!
Gorilla Zkittlez Strain Terpene Profile
With the Gorilla Zkittlez aroma and flavours, one word comes before all others, and that word is fruity! The Diesel strains from the GG4 side ensure a touch of the Chem, petrol scents, but the Glue traits mainly come in the effects (we’ll get to that).
Those fuel-tinged tones come via one of the Gorilla Zkittlez abundant terpenes, caryophyllene, which also works alongside limonene, another abundant terp, to create that sweet and fruity, candy-like tickly on the tongue on inhale. On the exhale, these tones will be joined by forest fresh flavours of linalool and the hoppy wonders of humulene. These flavours blend to create the unique, citrus-heavy taste of Gorilla Zkittlez.
Gorilla Zkittlez Strain Effects
There’s only one correct form of advice when it comes to Gorilla Zkittlez; sit down, kick back, relax, and wait for the mammoth high that is to come. Gorilla Glue is so named due to the near-immediate couch-lock that one receives, glueing the smoker to the nearest comfortable surface. This is something that Gorilla Zkittlez has very much inherited, but there’s more to the buzz here too.
After the initial total body relaxation effects, a more cerebral, thought-provoking high will start to play with your brain, forming into a blissful mix of ideas and conversational topics that will keep you in philosophical talk until the early hours of the morning. When the night is over, the Gorilla Zkittlez THC level (around 25%) will ensure that a deep, dream-filled, immensely calming sleep will await you as soon as your head hits the pillow!
Gorilla Zkittlez Strain Medical Benefits
The high terpene and cannabinoid content, especially caryophyllene (the only terpene that binds to cannabinoid receptors in the body), gives Gorilla Zkittlez medical benefit potential for the treatment of chronic pain conditions including migraines and fibromyalgia. The terps and cannabinoids may work with the body to aid pain-resistance.
Another potential benefit of Gorilla Zkittlez medical seeds is reducing symptoms of depression, both in frequency and longevity. The rich terpene profile of this strain, again in combination with the potent THC level, may help alleviate the symptoms of depression and depressive disorders.
How to Grow Gorilla Zkittlez Strain Seeds
Gorilla Zkittlez does require a little work but it is certainly worth the effort! Indoor growers may have to spend 8-10 weeks from germination to flowering, pruning, trimming, and changing lights, but these plants respond by being tough, mould resistant, and the Gorilla Zkittlez yield is very generous!
Outdoor and greenhouse growers should see the Gorilla Zkittlez flowering time lead to an early October harvest with a hefty yield of bud smelling of fertile fruits. When they are ready, those nugs will be covered in so many trichomes it’ll be difficult to see the stunning orange pistils that lie beneath!
