Gorilla is an indica-dominant hybrid; 60% indica and 40% sativa. Its breeders created it by crossing the classic Sour Dubb and Chem’s Sister, and Chocolate Diesel strains. If you’re looking for a super well-balanced high that hits the body and mind, this is the strain for you. Gorilla is one of the most popular cannabis strains in America. But its discovery was completely coincidental. Two Breeders from the United States, Lone Watie and Joesy Whales, discovered the strain after Whale’s Chem Sis plants hermied accidentally and pollinated his Sour Dubb – something which is typically a disaster if it happens to cannabis breeders.
We don’t know exactly why, but Watie decided to keep some of the “spoiled” seeds when Whales tossed out the plant. Later, perhaps out of curiosity, Watie germinated some of the seeds, and what emerged from the soil was one of the most spectacular strains in recent times.
Immediately, the two passionate breeders knew they had created something very special and were pleasantly shocked by the results of the first THC measurements. On average, the Gorilla strain has THC levels of about 25%. Gorilla induces a potent effect that is very relaxing, perfect for stress relief and chilling out. However, what makes the high extra special is that the chilled effect is balanced with a happy and uplifting high.
