ORIGINS & INFO

Platinum Gorilla provides a blissful, calming, body-soothing and hungry, Indica-Dominant, couch-locking and sleepy, earthy, fruity, perfect for the end-of-a-difficult-day hybrid cross between Platinum Kush and Gorilla Glue #4. Gorilla Glue #4 is a very potent strain of cannabis, mainly grown in Colorado. Gorilla Glue #4 is the Original Glue strain. The genetic makeup is a mix of Chocolate Diesel with Sour Diesel. The smell of diesel is strong but the taste is similar to coffee that has gone stale. The smell is extremely strong, one of the strongest strains in the world. Platinum Kush is an indica-dominant strain that takes on a platinum-silver shade due to its thick coat of crystal resin. With purple hues and bright orange hairs, its buds grow dense with a sweet fruity and hashy aroma. Its THC content can measure up to 18% with trace levels of CBD, and its buzz has been described as strongly cerebral and body-numbing. With iconic titan parents like Platinum Kush and Gorilla Glue #4, the Platinum Gorilla Glue strain was bred and destined for success.
