It doesn’t always happen that new strains from the US come across the pond and then make cannabis enthusiasts here in Europe as excited as we’ve seen with Gorilla Glue. This hybrid made already waves in the States where it reached outright legendary status shortly after her discovery which by the way was entirely coincidental and somewhat curious.
Royal Gorilla may not necessarily win prizes when it comes to yield numbers but this is easily forgotten since she makes well up for it with the outstanding quality of her buds. As the saying goes: “Quality before Quantity”! And to get this first-class extremely potent bud it doesn’t even require any special skills. You can grow Royal Gorilla everywhere, indoors or outdoors and if you do you can look forward to some massively-sized buds on a gorgeous plant with wonderful lime-green leaves. The plant will sparkle in the sun because of the sheer amount of sticky trichomes all over. This 50% Indica/Sativa can yield up to 550/m² when you grow her indoors with yields of up to 600g per plant if you grow her outdoors.

Her potency, along with her good resin production and the great taste are among the reasons that Gorilla Glue won already numerous awards, including at the 2014 Cannabis Cup and the 2015 World Cannabis Cup where she won first place as the best hybrid.
As the story goes, Gorilla Glue owes her discovery to two breeders, Joesy Whales and Lone Watie from the US. What happened is that Joesy’s Chem Sis accidently hermied and pollinated his Sour Dubb, something which is otherwise a disaster should it happen to cannabis breeders. For reasons that we’ll likely never know (call it Karma, divine intervention or simply incredible luck), Lonie kept some of the “spoiled” seeds when Joesy tossed out the plant. Possibly out of sheer curiosity and not expecting anything, Lonie later germinated some of the seeds and what was sprouting to the light was – who would have thought? – one of the most spectacular strains of the recent years: Gorilla Glue, or in our case, Royal Queen Seeds’ version of it, Royal Gorilla, was born!
Calling the Royal Gorilla by Royal Queen Seeds a powerful hybrid may not do her justice when you know that her THC levels can reach an insanely high 27%. This ultra-potent strain that until now was only available in the US will deliver an outright spectacular high that despite her crazy potency is still balanced. Get ready for incredible relaxation together with a nice uplifting euphoria!
Without a doubt, Royal Gorilla is one of the most talked about cannabis strains to come out of the US in a long time, quickly making a name for itself as a connoisseur favourite in the states. Her discovery, however, was entirely coincidental. Two breeders from the US, Joesy Whales and Lone Watie, discovered the strain after Joesy’s Chem Sis plants accidently hermied and pollinated his Sour Dubb. We don’t know exactly what made Lonie keep some of the seeds when Joesy tossed the strain out, but what we know is that he later germinated them maybe just out of curiosity and what shot out from the soil was nothing less than the spectacular Royal Gorilla!
Royal Gorilla isn’t necessarily a strain that you would choose for her yields, which are in fact quite moderate – the focus here is on the quality of the bud, rather than the quantity. You can grow Royal Gorilla indoors or outdoors, where she will grow massive buds that will have wonderful lime-green leaves. Thanks to her strong resin production, her leaves will become covered with an abundance of trichomes, that will beautifully sparkle in the sun!
Royal Gorilla: RQS Works Its Magic With Legendary Strain Gorilla Glue
The strain has already won multiple awards, such as the 2014 Cannabis Cup and the 2015 World Cannabis Cup, where she won first place in the best hybrid category.
The two passionate breeders immediately knew they had created something truly special, and were blown away by the results of their first THC measurements. As if a staggering 24-26% of THC wouldn’t be crazily high enough, some of her phenos are said to have weighed in at an incredible 30% – THC levels which up to this date had never been measured in any strain before.
As for Gorilla Glue’s name, the official story here is that they choose the name because of the strain’s insane resin production that made the two breeders stick to everything after handling their new creation. But given the strain’s super-relaxing effect, Royal Gorilla can also be a perfectly fitting name to describe her deeply relaxing body stone that will “glue” you to your couch, although her high also comes with an uplifting euphoria – making her effect awesomely balanced.
