About this Hybrid Strain
Sour Gorilla is an indica-dominant hybrid, coming out to around 35% sativa and 65% indica. This bud was made by crossing Sour Diesel and Gorilla Glue #4 -- two tasty, hard-hitting strains that give their offspring its exceptional flavor and effects. Though the CBD level in Sour Gorilla is relatively low at 1%, the high concentration of THC found in its trichomes and sticky resin gives it a frosty appearance and an average of 15% THC.
As you can imagine, the flavor of its parent strain Sour Diesel carried over into this bud and when smoked, it gives a biting hint of fuel, though, its strong lemon flavor keeps it from being overpowering. Along with its flavor, the smell of Sour Gorilla is quite potent. It offers bold notes of diesel accented by undertones of citrus fruits. Linalool -- a terpene also found in lavender -- has also been found in Sour Gorilla and has been reported to potentially offer anxiety relief. Some research suggests that this terpene aids in stress reduction and also may function as an effective and natural muscle relaxant.
Reportedly great for alleviating stress, Sour Gorilla cannabis provides a nice balance of sativa and indica effects that might make you feel creatively inspired. However, there’s a good chance that you’ll feel rather sleepy after smoking due to its strong body high, according to its fans. That said, it may be ideal to consume during the evening or before bedtime. Just like the name its parent Gorilla Glue #4 suggests, with Sour Gorilla you could easily experience couch lock setting in as you relax - hence, you’ll feel “glued” to the couch.
