What is Gorilla Cookies Strain?
When two modern-day legends meet each other and have babies, what more can we expect than an epic new strain. In this article, we will talk about one of the most potent Gorilla Cookies strain.
She is a massive producer and very easy to grow. The THC level of this super-potent strain can reach up to 27% while being low in CBD under 1%. Gorilla Cookies is a Sativa dominant hybrid. As you can guess by the name, she is a descendant of Girl Scout Cookies on the one side and Gorilla Glue #4 on the other side.
Background and Lineage
Breeders at Elev8 Seeds crossed two potent strains, Gorilla Glue #4 and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, to create one of the world’s finest cannabis strain Gorilla Cookies. Both the parents are world-famous for their potency and terpene profile. Girl Scout Cookies is also known for its sweetness, and Gorilla Glue is known for its extreme stickiness. Of course, their baby inherited all their best features, and that’s how Gorilla Cookies became such a huge producer.
Types of High
The good thing about this strain is there’s no anxiety or paranoid feelings. Like any other good hybrid, Gorilla Cookies lifts you way up before bringing you down.
Gorilla Cookies strain induces moderate cerebral euphoria that energizes body and mind, and you’ll probably notice your creative juices starting to flow. Both body and mind tend to wake up during your high, so if you have some physical activities that need to get done, now’s the time before curling up into a relaxing ball of joy.
After the high, it will bring you to a relaxed state of mind with slightly sedative effects. You will feel complete body-mind relaxation and laziness, but the Sativa lineage of Gorilla Cookies will keep you focused while under its sedative effects.
Gorilla Cookies is a quality strain and is highly helpful in managing chronic pain, nausea and minimizing cancer treatment side effects, like loss of appetite.
Due to the strain’s uplifting effects and anti-anxiety properties, Gorilla Cookies is a top choice for medical patients who struggle with daily depression, stress, and anxiety.
The most common side effects of the Gorilla Cookies strain are dry mouth and dry eyes. The best way to avoid this is by consuming plenty of fluid to keep yourself hydrated and use eye-drops.
Gorilla Cookies is a very potent marijuana strain. It may cause mild hallucinations, poor motor skills, or altered perceptions of reality. For these reasons, it is unsafe to operate heavy machinery after using marijuana. It is also illegal in every state to drive after using marijuana, even where marijuana use is legal.
It is essential to know that the side effects of marijuana can vary between people. If you are taking any cannabis strain for the first time, take it in a smaller dose and only increase the dosage if it seems appropriate. You should always know your limit and stick to it at all times.
Growing Gorilla Cookies Strain
Gorilla Cookies Strain seeds are available to buy online. You should always buy them from reputable sellers and do some research before you purchase them. You can also obtain clipping from a healthy and mature plant to grow Gorilla Cookies strain’s genetically identical clones.
The strain is very easy to grow, and the plants have high resistance to disease, temperature, and chemical damage. They also respond well to various growing methods, which make this strain a perfect choice for beginner growers.
The Gorilla Cookies strain thrives both indoor and outdoor.
Growing marijuana strains indoors allows you to have a more controlled environment. But the plants of Gorilla Cookies strain grow pretty tall and busy, so you will need to make sure that you have enough space inside.
Gorilla Cookies is a huge producer. It takes about 9-10 weeks to flower when you grow this strain indoors, and you can expect a yield of 450- 550g per square meter. To increase the yield, you will need to add support to this strain or even tie her side branches down to help her grow better during the flowering stage. A bit of LST (Low-Stress Training) and defoliation can bring her to her full potential.
If you are growing this strain outside, choose a Mediterranean environment or the OG environment in California. Growing marijuana strains outdoor have some benefits. You get to use natural sunlight, the real ground, outside air, and ample room. Gorilla Cookies strain tends to get rather large in some cases, so you keep enough space between the plants to grow. The plant should be ready for harvest by early to mid-September to October. You can expect a yield of up to 700g per plant.
Make sure pH levels stay around 6.5.
