Equinox Gorilla Glue #4 -AKA GG4 Strain

Strain Type: Indica-Dominant Hybrid

With 63% indica and 37% sativa genetics, GG4 is a classic indica-dominant hybrid with enough genetic diversity to keep you on your toes. The combination of physical relaxation with a slight mental uplift means GG4 is an excellent companion for lazy afternoon daydreaming.

The GG4 consumption experience is a blissful ride of physical relaxation paired with a dreamy, transporting mental state. Whatever worries or cares are bogging you down will melt away as the high seeps through your body, leaving you chilled out and at peace.


Descended from Chocolate Diesel and Sour Dubb, GG4 was created after several failed attempts to crossbreed the strains. At last, lightning struck, producing the perfect hybrid of these two legendary parents.

GG4 gets its delicate flavor and delicious head high from Chocolate Diesel, whose sativa genetics lend this strain a soaring euphoria. Sour Dubb chimes in with those lovely blended head and body effects and potent relaxation-inducing power.

How does GG4 make you feel?

GG4 is widely known for its body-melting, mind-liquifying effects, washing away even the most pernicious stressors and leaving you in a state of bliss. Excellent for anxiety, stress, and strain, it’s a potent dose of self-care in flower form.

From the first toke, you’ll notice an immediate sense of euphoria that sends you soaring skyward. Negative thoughts fade into the background as your body and mind sink into a state of profound relaxation and ease.

As the high settles in, that sense of calm grows deeper and deeper until you find yourself immersed in the most profound sense of relaxation possible. Give in and let yourself melt into a sleepy puddle as you drift into a dreamy unconscious state.

THC Potency

GG4’s hard-hitting effects are due to its ultra potent 32% average THC level, which is one of the reasons this strain is so popular for medical use. Patients swear by its ability to make insomnia, stress, and bodily discomfort disappear like magic, leaving them soothed and relaxed.

These high THC levels mean that GG4 is best reserved for experienced users who are seeking a truly transporting experience. If you’re new to the world of cannabis, starting low and going slow is the best policy when it comes to this powerful strain.

Strain Aromas

GG4 is known for its fluffy nugs that smell like dank diesel with notes of dark chocolate, espresso, and warm spices. Undertones of rye flour and sour citrus complete the experience, creating a complex and tasty scent.

Strain Flavor

When you first inhale, you’ll be struck by GG4’s sour diesel flavor and bright, zesty front notes. As you breathe out, a hidden earthy sweetness comes to the fore. Chocolate and cinnamon flavors blend with the diesel notes for a taste sensation that’ll leave you coming back for more.
