New Zamnesia Strain: Gorilla Glue Auto

3 min

Get that Gorilla Glue experience with Zamnesia. Gorilla Glue Auto is a fast-flowering version of the stellar weed that represents the best of the art of cannabis breeding. 8–10 weeks from seed is all it takes to get the stickiest and ickiest of all time.


In the early development years prior to 2014, the original growers of the Gorilla Glue strain kept having things stick to their fingers like glue whenever they handled this prototype weed. So the name Gorilla Glue also stuck. Like a number of famous strains of cannabis, Gorilla Glue was an accident. For example, the much adored Cheese line started as a spontaneous Skunk #1 mutation. Gorilla Glue began as seeds produced by a hermaphrodite Chem Sister were fertilised by a Sour Dubb. These may be legendary strains in themselves, but no breeder wants hermie genes polluting their genepool.

The seeds were almost discarded, but instead were planted on a whim. The growers knew the resulting plants would be something special. They were then crossed with a Chocolate Diesel for added stability. Now we have one of the most powerful strains of indica-dominant weed on the planet. The Zamnesia breeders have further modified this cutting-edge example of top-shelf contemporary marijuana by adding autoflowering genes to the heady Gorilla mix. This has created an autoflowering cannabis strain that retains every mouth-watering feature of the photoperiod original, with greater ease of cultivation and a quicker life cycle.

Gorilla Glue Automatic: Say hello

Gorilla Glue contains within its genes a complex history that represents the finest in cannabis breeding—from the powerful original landraces to the early classics like the Northern Lights, Skunk #1, and the Bubble line. Iterations of these produced further classics like the Sour line and Chemdawg. Further combinations of these precious cultivars and some fortuitous whimsy have produced another contemporary classic; Gorilla Glue Auto has unquestionable pedigree, which is represented at every stage of its heredity.

In the final stages of flowering, when resin production is at its highest, a familiar sour and lemony scent mingles with the deeply Kushy, strawberry schnapps aroma. Then, like all good cannabis, there is something umami lingering in the background that is a next-level punch to the nose, but in a good way! Such arresting aromatics hint at the psychedelic powers within the buds and demand deep, savouring inhales. Volatiles vaporise and sinuses tingle. It can even be tasted in the air.

When dried, the bud colours tend towards purple, and the knotted trichomes form a shiny carapace of aromatic goodness. After curing, the sterile, tangy sharpness of the fresh plant backs off. The fragrances mature and become more complex. Pine, strawberries, and citrus peels dance well with floral bouquets and a hint of - for lack of a better comparison - sweaty socks.

The effects are equally complex. A high-pressure cerebral rinse and an intense euphoria that may spook a novice come on strong. They sit perfectly inside a solid body stone that may have beneficial attributes for the some medical patients facing chronic pain. Get on top of it early, and you will be floating on mental and physical clouds with extreme time dilation. Be careful, this stuff is couch bait. Let it get on top of you, and you’ll be in a comfy chair in the bottom of a gravity well, but really happy.

Gorilla Glue Automatic: Growing Traits

Gorilla Glue Auto is a very robust hybrid that thrives well inside under lights, and outside in either a greenhouse or in the raw. It comes from a long line of very hardy strains of cannabis that are classics in and of themselves. Gorilla Glue Auto has taken things to the next level with minimum THC levels for the beginner of 20%. Expert growers with years of cannabis experience weave magic to produce phenos with up to 30% THC. That is five times stronger than the strongest weed on record prior to the sinsemilla era.

Indoors, plants under 600W lights will reach 70–120cm in height, with the extra 50cm accounting for bud stretch when flowering really gets going. Expect up to 400g/m² in these conditions. Outdoors, plants can grow to 150cm. Gorilla Glue Auto flowers regardless of photoperiod, allowing for multiple crops from spring to autumn. Grown in 20l tubs, Gorilla Glue Auto needs little fuss and will be ready in 8–10 weeks post-germination.

Bud development is shy initially, with many white hairs hinting at potential flowers while the plant goes through its brief vegetation phase. Then flowering begins in earnest. The indica heritage is obvious when felty knuckles of densely packed calyxes form stinky flower clusters. Long, blunt end colas are kaleidoscopic with trichomes and will certainly need support for their heavy heads.


Gorilla Glue Automatic: Auto versus Photo

The decision of whether to grow the auto or photo version of Gorilla Glue is the same that needs to be made for autos and photos in general. Autoflowering strains have the advantage of buds in the jar sooner. There is less chance of diseases and other problems during their minimal vegetation time. They also have a reduced height, which is great for indoors and the Gorilla guerrilla who is trying to be discreet.

It is difficult to fault autoflowering cannabis. The yields are lower per plant, but comparable to larger photo plants over the complete grow season. Multiple crops of autos are possible between spring and autumn while only one crop of photo is possible. This can balance out the aggregate yields.

Gorilla Glue has something for the medical user and the recreational enthusiast. The classic indica body stone provides unparalleled pain relief, while the cerebral effects quell the anxious mind. This is one of the strongest weed strains of all time. It goes without saying that all recreational users like good, strong weed.

Gorilla Glue Auto displays the hardiness of many indica-dominant hybrids. It is undemanding of nutrients and its heavy, early resin production provides superb resistance to pathogens. The beginner will get satisfactorily sticky results, while the pro will be able to push the THC envelope. Growing Gorilla Glue Auto is a smart move this grow season.
