Gorilla Cookies

This extremely potent blend of Thin Mint Cookies and Gorilla Glue #4 is the ideal sativa-dominant hybrid.


About Gorilla Cookies

Gorilla Cookies was created when Elev8 Seeds combined the fabulous Gorilla Glue #4 with Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies, an extra special phenotype of the original GSC. These parent strains provide Gorilla cookies with high resin and trichome production and thick terpene count, respectively. The strain is about 70 percent sativa by some accounts. Others place it closer to 60 percent sativa and 40 percent indica.

This strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid that has been shown to have THC levels of over 24 percent THC in some tests, making it an extremely potent cannabis strain. Even so, this maximum potency is less than its lineage would make. This contrasts with the very low CBD concentration.


Patients who have had the opportunity to sample Gorilla Cookies say that the strain induces a high-intensity body buzz that energizes you physically and mentally while making your head soar with euphoria. As a hybrid, you will experience an excellent "high" before you are brought back down. Overall, you will likely feel euphoric, happy, and relaxed.

The cerebral effects of Gorilla Cookies will deliver a long-lasting feeling of euphoria. Many people also experience a boost to their creativity during the "high." The strain is perfect for socializing or just general relaxation.

As the effect of Gorilla Cookies lasts, you will notice that your mind and your body are both awake. This makes it the ideal time for taking care of those physical activities you need to complete, like chores. When the effect wanes, you will not crash. Instead, you will find yourself in a relaxed state along with some mild sedative effects.

It is common to use Gorilla Cookies to control pain, depression, and stress. Its popularity as medical marijuana for those with depression, stress, and anxiety comes from the strain's ability to lift your spirits. When you smoke Gorilla Cookies, however, you should watch your dosage. If you overindulge, you may notice some of your issues getting worse instead of better.

If you want to take Gorilla Cookies to relieve your pain and aches or nausea, the strain will target your problems very quickly, providing you with nearly immediate relief.


This strain's chunky pale green buds are frosted with potent trichomes and filled with an excess of sticky sweet resin, giving this strain its pungent and minty aroma. The trichomes truly coat the buds, providing the potency smokers want. The buds of Gorilla Cookies are usually dense and small with extensive resin to make up for the size.

Aroma and Flavor

In terms of aromas and flavors, you will find a combination of classic flavors like pine, lemon, and earth, which showcase the parent strains of Gorilla Cookies. You may notice flavors and aromas like earthiness, mint, sweetness, and cookies.

Other Information to Know

The ideal time of the day to smoke Gorilla Cookies is in the afternoon. The strain does great for those who want an amazing boost of energy and do not need to worry about how it affects you afterward. As such, it is common to smoke Gorilla Cookies on the weekend, when you want to get stuff done but plans on relaxing after.

If you want to grow Gorilla Cookies, you should not have any problem finding seeds from the breeder. However, you should make sure you have experienced growing other cannabis plants first. Compared to different marijuana strains, Gorilla Cookies grows relatively large at times, sometimes reaching six feet tall. As such, make sure you have enough room.

You should find yourself with a rich, sticky harvest in between eight and nine weeks. You should get about 500 grams for every square meter when it comes time to harvest your buds.
