A Cannabis Grower’s Guide to Gorilla Zkittlez

Gorilla Zkittlez is a potent Indica-dominant 60/40 hybrid strain that perfectly matches its ancestors. It is a cross between the renowned Original Glue, popularly known as Gorilla Glue #4, and another award-winning strain, Zkittlez.

It is the creation of Barney’s Farm, a worldwide breeder. Additionally, this marijuana strain ranks tenth in terms of THC content.

As might be anticipated of a strain named after Gorilla Glue #4, this strain has a quite high THC content of about 20% – 23%. This is a rather robust strain with a correspondingly robust impact; as such, it is not advised for inexperienced smokers.

However, for those with a strong tolerance, this cannabis will be a wonderful discovery.

About Gorilla Zkittlez

Gorilla Zkittlez is a somewhat Indica-dominant strain that is filled with euphoria and pleasant relaxation for individuals looking to replace the stress of the workweek with a case of giggles. The aroma is wonderful, reminiscent of a combination of spicy artisan chocolate, herbs, and fresh flowers.

Both of the strain’s parents, Original Glue and Zkittlez, are well-known in their own right for being very sedating and deliciously creative. Gorilla Zkittlez has those effects, as well as a couple of its own.

Barney’s Farm introduced us to Gorilla Zkittlez in order to provide people with a flavor of the Netherlands regardless of their location. With proper care, you may harvest the strain in around 60 days. When trained and trimmed correctly, the strain grows tall and colorful, with massive core colas.

The appearance of the plant is stunning – blue-purple under the surface, dark olive-green above, abundant transparent hairs, and tiny, glittering trichomes.

Advice for Growers

Pruning the Gorilla Zkittlez plant to keep it lower to the ground encourages the formation of numerous main bud sites, enhancing your output. Due to the vulnerability of Gorilla Zkittlez to predatory insect pests, surround it with suitable companions, such as Chamomile and Sweet Basil, to ward off hungry bugs.

Aroma and Flavor

The flavor is seductive, beginning with sweet, fruity notes and progressing to creamy chocolate, earth, herbs, and flowers. For consumers who are unfamiliar with or dislike skunky hash tastes, Gorilla Zkittlez may introduce them to the finer points of cannabis palettes.

It contains enough THC (on average, 22 percent) to provide even seasoned users with long-lasting soothing effects that may morph into drowsiness if allowed. The scent is the same, with a spicy undertone offset by velvety dark chocolate and earthy florals.


This strain produces a very powerful, but not overpowering, high that induces a very happy, positive frame of mind. Though it takes time to take effect, this cannabis strain is well-known for its calming and uplifting effects.

It mostly promotes relaxation, enjoyment, and, sometimes, creativity while also keeping clear thinking. On the other side, it often induces sleepiness and hunger in users.

The seeds are commercially accessible online, including from the original breeders. When grown indoors, the blooming cycle takes 56-63 days, and the typical output is between 500 and 600 grams per square meter. The harvest month is mid-October when grown outdoors, and the typical yield is between 1000 and 2000 grams per plant.
