Royal Gorilla is a powerful hybrid that, until recently, was only available in the US. Royal Gorilla has a good medicinal potential and makes a good choice to help with chronic pains and other ailments. 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 favorite in the States. Its 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. No one knows exactly what made Lonie keep some of the seeds when Joesy tossed the strain out, but what is known is that he later germinated them maybe just out of curiosity and what shot out from the soil was nothing less than the spectacular Gorilla Glue aka Royal Gorilla. The two passionate breeders immediately knew they had created something truly special, and were blown away by the results of their first measurements of cannabinoid levels.
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 strong relaxing effect, Gorilla Glue can also be a perfectly fitting name to describe its deeply relaxing body stone that will “glue” you to your couch, although the overall effect is balanced.
The focus with Royal Gorilla is on the quality of the bud, rather than the quantity. You can grow Royal Gorilla indoors or outdoors, where it will grow massive buds that will have wonderful lime-green leaves. Thanks to the strong resin production, the leaves will become covered with an abundance of trichomes that will beautifully sparkle in the sun.
Royal Gorilla induces a very potent effect that is balanced and very relaxing, suitable for stress relief. It is a good strain for medicinal users who want a strong herb to help with the management of their symptoms, such as chronic pain.
Royal Gorilla, which is a balanced 50% indica/sativa hybrid, has delightfully superb earthy and sweet tones, complemented nicely with additional notes of lemon and pine. It makes for a great-tasting smoke that won’t disappoint even the pickiest of cannabis connoisseurs. The strain has already won multiple awards, such as the 2014 Cannabis Cup and the 2015 World Cannabis Cup, where it won the first place in the Best Hybrid category, proving it is truly an outstanding hybrid.
