Seedshop Strain Review

A high-THC content; indica-dominant; award-winning parent strains; unbelievably sweet and hoppy terpenes… What more could you ask for?

To many indica lovers, Gorilla Zkittlez might seem like the stuff of dreams. But we can assure you, expert breeders made it a reality. However, our words can only capture so much. You simply can’t know just how tasty these flowers are until you try them.

Characteristics Of Gorilla Zkittlez

Gorilla Zkittlez descends from a match made in high-THC heaven: Zkittlez and Gorilla Glue. These two West Coast cultivars passed down outrageous levels of THC and immense quantities of tasty terpenes.

Genetics 40% Sativa, 60% Indica
Parents Gorilla Glue x Zkittlez
THC 24%
CBD Low
Flavours Sweet, Candy, Floral, Hoppy
Effects Well-Balanced, Stoning Body High, Clear-Headed

Gorilla Zkittlez emerged from an ambitious breeding project that attempted to combine two of the strongest and tastiest new-school classics. Breeders wanted to harness the unparalleled terpene profile of Zkittlez and merge it with the enormous THC content found in Gorilla Glue. Zkittlez passed down its sugary tastes, and then some. This indica-dominant parent strain inherited its diverse and complementary flavours from two of the tastiest cultivars on the planet: Grape Ape and Grapefruit.

Breeders added Gorilla Glue to the equation to deliver a knock-out indica blow. The strain gained notoriety within the cannabis community for its outlandish THC level and its stoning and euphoric high. A combination of Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel gave rise to this specimen. No stranger to success, Gorilla Glue received two 1st place Cannabis Cup wins and won the High Times Jamaican World Cup.

The plant blooms gorgeous tapered flowers flanked by purple-green sugar leaves. Its enormous trichome count pops against a canvas of dark green flowers and orange pistils.

Gorilla Zkittlez thrives in both indoor and outdoor settings. It has a penchant for warmer climates, but its hardy indica genes can handle even the cooler climates of northern regions. For an indica-dominant strain, Gorilla Zkittlez grows fairly tall. Its sativa genetics certainly shine through when it comes to morphology and growing pattern. Its size might not appeal to clandestine growers, but its yield provides a rewarding payoff.

Indoor plants climb to a height of 140–170cm and develop a large central cola. Growers can utilise training and pruning techniques to keep it low to the ground and force it to produce multiple primary bud sites. Indoors, Gorilla Zkittlez produces a rewarding yield of 500–700g/m². Expect to harvest these buds after a flowering time of 56–63 days.
