Dominant Origins & Notables
What happens when a heavy-handed sedating strain meets a cheerful, candy-flavored one? You get Gorilla Glue #4 x Zkittlez. This hybrid is 60% Indica and 40% Sativa to give you a balanced mix of cerebral and body buzzes. Initially, it wakes you up and elevates your mood. And while your head is in the clouds, it works on relaxing your muscles and releasing tension. Its aroma evokes childhood memories but is also surprisingly sophisticated. Although dominated by grape and chocolate, it is accented by wine and berries. So if you want to merge mental stimulation and physical tranquility, and combine sugary and tangy, this strain is for you.
The synthesis of GG4 x Zkittles Feminized produces a high-yielding, medium-sized plant that is a feast for the eyes. In the early vegetative stage, its broad leaves are vividly green. But as it matures, the edges of the leaves take on a purplish hue. The fat blossoms are violet-tinged as well, dripping with crystalline trichomes. In fact, the sticky resin covers almost the entire plant, giving it a snow-dusted look. The smell it gives off is exhilarating and can instantly transport you to a happier place.
This hybrid can get bushy and needs some intermediate knowledge to grow successfully. Because it tends to have thick foliage, regular pruning is required. This ensures that the lower branches are getting enough light and airflow. The latter is particularly important since it helps to control the relative humidity. If too much moisture builds up, it could cause mold and mildew to proliferate. It could also inhibit the plant’s transpiration process. This means that it will not be able to “breathe” properly and the growth might get stunted.
Apart from that, it is pretty resilient even in conditions that are less than ideal. The branches are tough and can withstand strong winds. They will not break under the weight of the heavy buds. This plant can also survive brief dips in temperature, unlike other varietals. Some growers actually drop the temp on purpose to encourage it to produce more coloration. This is something that is best left to the experts as it could shock the plant too much and diminish the yield.
As an Indica-dominant strain, it matures relatively quickly. Furthermore, it does not get too towering, allowing easy access to your crop. When grown indoors, the flowering period takes about 8 to 9 weeks. Outdoors, it blooms in late September so that you can start collecting the buds in early October.
To get the most out GG #4 x Zkittles, you should feed it plenty of nutrients. Due to its dense vegetation, it requires a high-nitrogen mix in the early stages of its life cycle. However, remember to ease up on the nitrogen and give it more phosphorus once it starts flowering. The final height of the plant averages 1.4 meters (55 inches). It is your choice whether to use soil or hydroponics, but going soilless could bump up your yield to 700 grams (25 ounces) per square meter. In addition, it lets you control the absorption of micronutrients more easily.
If you live in an area with a balmy climate, you can grow this strain outdoors. With plenty of sunlight, it can extend up to 1.7 meters (5.5 feet). That is still short and manageable. It will take on a hedge-like appearance and can produce a whopping 1 kilogram (35 ounces) of bud. The naturally colder temperature at night will switch on the anthocyanins and trigger the brilliant colors.
Just like its formidable parents, this strain has loads of medical benefits. GG4 is famous for being exceptionally sticky, a testament to its astronomic cannabinoid content. The High Times Cannabis Cup winner Zkittlez is no lightweight, either, even though its THC level is lower. Both sets of genes are melded together to produce mighty physical and mental effects that can relieve a variety of ailments.
One of the most popular uses of this strain is pain management. Notwithstanding its low CBD concentration (CBD is more prevalent for pain and inflammation), its 24% THC makes it very effective. Actually, many people are not aware that there is evidence that high THC has been can significantly reduce a broader spectrum of pain, not CBD.
On the mental side, GG #4 x Zkittlez can alleviate stress and depression due to its mood-lifting properties. It can calm the mind and erase negativity. Eventually, that sense of tranquility leads to drowsiness. These effects are highly beneficial for individuals suffering from anxiety and sleep disorders.
This strain is particularly fast-acting and intoxicating due to its high THC. Novices should take care not to smoke too much or too quickly until they can gauge the psychoactive effects. Some people experience dizziness, but that can go away with a few minutes of staying still and calm. More serious is paranoia and increased anxiety. If that happens to you, you could be THC-sensitive, and so you should take the necessary precautions.
The other negative side effects are more easily remedied. Cotton mouth’s cure, for instance, is a tall glass of water. For red and dry eyes, some moisturizing eye drops are the best antidote – hello, Visine! If that fails, just put on your sunglasses.
The psychoactive effects of this hybrid cascade in a predictable manner. At first, the 40% Sativa element kicks in. It creates alertness and enhanced sensitivity to colors and smells. It is euphoric and uplifting, but unlike pure Sativas, it does not really allow you to focus your attention. You will think deep thoughts, but they will be all over the place.
While this is happening, your muscles will lose their tension and your bones will seem rubbery. This is due to the Indica influence. The profound relaxation builds until you feel exceedingly lazy and lethargic. Eventually, you will become couch-locked. Nevertheless, you will have a smile on your face as you drift off to sleep.
As mentioned earlier, GG #4 x Zkittlez is very potent. Inexperienced users should watch out for mental overstimulation or conversely, a sudden onset of drowsiness. This is not the strain to use if you are balancing your checkbook or driving your car.
The aroma of this strain is unique and complex. As expected, it smells strongly of tropical fruit confectionary – sweet and sour. However, it also has the earthiness of chocolate and a little honey. Furthermore, its alpha- and beta-pinene compounds give it some woody spice that is reminiscent of an old-growth pine forest.
Gorilla Zkittlez tastes as intense and distinctive as it smells. The candy flavor is at the forefront and will awaken your taste buds. The sweetness is mostly from grape, while the acid suggests lemon and blueberries. But it has an astringent quality, too – similar to the tannins found in wine. This bouquet is a delight for the sophisticated connoisseur.
These seeds are feminized, but you have the option of buying GG4 x Zkittlez Regular if you wish. While it is true that an all-female grow is less work, regular seeds are better if you are planning to clone. Clones grown from unfeminized seeds are as close to the mother plants as nature allows. The buds are also more consistent in terms of quality and quantity.
But if you want to stick with feminized seeds, a great addition to your collection would be Sweet Tooth x GG4 Feminized. Although its yield is not as heavy, it has a slightly higher resistance to humidity problems. It exhibits the same vibrant colors, but the aroma has a more diesel characteristic.
If you can’t get enough of rainbow candy flavor, though, why not go for pure Zkittlez Fem seeds? This strain is the result of interbreeding Grape Ape and Grapefruit. It is a very easy grow even for novices and the effects are more chatty and sociable.
Gorilla Zkittlez has some chocolate notes in it, but if you are a chocoholic, then try Chocolope. It is a 95% Sativa and produces a short-lived but powerful head high. This is a wake ‘n bake strain that is great for tackling mundane or creative tasks. And of course, it tastes absolutely delicious.

It is a little confusing, but Original Glue, also known as "Gorilla Glue”
and Gorilla Glue #4 are one and the same strain. It is often simply referred to as Gorilla, GG, or GG #4. Zkittlez, on the other hand, is sometimes spelled as Skittlz – another way to avoid violating the trademark of the famous candies. The most common contraction of this marriage between the two cultivars is “Gorilla Zkittlez”.
