Welcome to another UK cannabis strain review by ISMOKE.
This week I’ve got a strain which I covered before as part of a double feature, but which today I’ll be covering it by itself… It’s Gorilla Glue #4.
This sample of Gorilla Glue #4 has been grown organically. That means that the plant was only water-fed. It was grown by Kush Family Collective, who also grew the Blue Cheese strain that I reviewed previously for the ISMOKE channel.

The organic Gorilla Glue #4 has a rich colouration and nice-looking depth; all the buds I received each have their own distinct and natural-looking shape.
The trichomes are caked onto the sample and glisten in the light. The pistils are a deep, golden colour.
Due to a lack of nutrients during the growth and flowering cycle, it’s perhaps not as well-developed looking as many of strains you will have seen on the channel, with some of the buds being spindly/smaller than average. However, that doesn’t have any bearing on the smell, taste or effects of this bud, as you’ll see from the rest of the review below.
This sample has a complex poignancy which is immediately apparent as I crack open the pop jar.
I get slight hints of chocolate and pine, with strong earthy notes. It gets about 10 times as strong as I break open the bud and hold it up to my nose.
This organic Gorilla Glue #4 smells super pungent!
I’m getting clear pungent, earthy notes, with hints of pine on the exhale through my Weedstar Wasabi-line bong.
It gives off a smooth and slightly sweet smoke, which surprisingly leaves me clear-chested, which is great considering I have a chesty cough at the moment.
As a hybrid strain, I’m expecting effects on both ends of the spectrum, and this does not disappoint. I get an enjoyable head-high feeling mixed with body relaxation.
The potency is there, as demonstrated by the trichomes. It isn’t too intense and feels like a good anytime smoke, I wouldn’t just have this one in the evening but could smoke it before bed.
When I heard I was going to try this organic version of one of my favourite strains I was excited, to say the least.
Having smoked various Gorilla Glue phenotypes over the past few years I was pleasantly surprised by the organic version, despite the bud development appearance.
It looks and feels more natural, and tastes completely clean, making consuming this one a real treat.
Overall, this review has cemented the Gorilla Glue #4 in my top 15 cannabis strains of all time.
