If you share a really hot strain with one person, the whole world will know about it tomorrow. Which makes Gorilla Glue #4 the Kim Kardashian sex tape of marijuana strains. Like adolescent boys and the Kim Kardashian video, nearly all cannabis growers claim they have Gorilla Glue #4 (GG#4) in their arsenals. In the Glue’s mere four years of existence, many have grown this strain, even more have profited from this strain, and almost everyone has smoked this strain.
Yet few cannabis consumers know the truth about “the glue, and fewer consumers know its origin story: GG #4 was born from an inadvertent sexual encounter among cannabis plants. And even fewer know that strain recently became the first known type of cannabis to receive statewide trademarks.
