Gorilla Cookies is of the most exciting strains to hit the scene in the last decade, and while we see strains come and go, quality rises to the top of the heap. Gorilla Cookies has that perfect balance of genetic lineage that screams quality. It's pretty rare for a strain to be still at the very top of the game 8 years in, but Gorilla Cookies is still firmly planted in the top 5% of strains that sell out as soon as more seeds are released.
This hybrid cross offers huge advantages to both commercial and hobby growers, with outstanding potency, aroma, flavor, and yield - and that's not even mentioning the bag appeal and speed of growth for a Sativa-dominant hybrid.
With predominately Sativa-heavy genetics, this cross of Gorilla Glue #4 and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies truly does offer the best of both worlds. Both Gorilla Glue #4 and Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies were originally bred with potency in mind, and we all know exactly how heavy-hitting Gorilla Glue #4 can be. But the introduction of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies offers a slightly altered terpene profile that really allows Gorilla Cookies to stand out from the Gorilla pack!
And while the terpene profile is definitely something to point out, this strain has a bunch of advantages that keep cultivators and consumers coming back for more. Through extensive back breeding, we have reduced the phenotype variation to the point where each and every seed can be relied upon to produce consistent results.
While Gorilla Cookies may not reach the lofty heights of Gorilla Glue in terms of actual lab readouts - with an average THC percentage sitting at around 22 to 24% (when grown in perfect environmental conditions), she's anything but a slouch. With a Sativa to Indica split of about 70/30, this strain offers what many hybrids strive for - that is, a warmingly uplifting start that slowly mellows into a more relaxing and stress-relieving high.
If you are on the hunt for a strain that will invigorate while also helping to reduce inflammation and general body aches and pains, then the Gorilla Cookies strain is a perfect option. It's also great at reducing symptoms of nausea, increasing appetite and general food satisfaction. People suffering from general anxiety disorders and depression have found Gorilla Cookies to work wonders in improving their overall mood.
One question we hear all the time is "Can beginners grow Gorilla Cookies seeds?"
The answer? For sure, but since she is a large Sativa, there are a couple of things to keep in mind.
This strain can work really well in both indoor and outdoor settings - but the climatic conditions do make a huge difference to the final yield. Gorilla Cookies will flourish in slightly warmer conditions, with temperatures ideally sitting around the 24 to 27 degrees Celsius mark in order to reach peak performance.
She does really well in both organic soil mixes and hydroponic setups. We have tested her with a bunch of substrate options and have found that she really thrives in a soil/coco/perlite mix. As with all strains, Gorilla Cookies produces the biggest yields when grown indoors with a hydroponic routine, but if you want to boost those terpenes to their absolute max then we suggest going the organic route. Growing organically also reduces the amount of work you have to put in and makes the cultivation experience just that little bit easier - especially for novice growers. You can always hit her with some organic (or synthetic) boosters later in the run. Top her twice or three times with outdoor grows to boost the number of budding sites.
When grown indoors, look to keep the humidity levels in check. Gorilla Cookies Fem produces super dense bud formation, which is a huge plus, but it can lead to the dreaded bud rot if the grow room humidity rises above acceptable levels. Look at keeping it around 65% for seedlings, but as soon as veg growth begins you are going to want to drop that down closer to 55%. If you can keep the RH below 50% when flowering formation really kicks in, you'll reduce any chances of mold issues plaguing the grow.
Being Sativa-dominant, expect Gorilla Cookies to grow longer, thinner fan leaves with fingers that rarely touch. This isn't always the case, with some phenos laying a little more on the Indica side of the scale, but this is pretty rare. She's a tall girl, so if you're growing in a tight space we do recommend tying her down or setting up a scrog net to keep her under control.
The buds are usually small to medium-sized, but geez they're dense little SOBs - especially when grown indoors. Sativas usually produce slightly looser buds, but Gorilla Cookies Fem develop thick, heavy nuggets that are as frosty as anything. The buds have a lighter green finish, with the pistils usually ripening into a deep orange.
Aroma-wise, Gorilla Cookies Fem is backed up by some pretty fantastic genetics. She's loud as hell and leans more to the Thin Mints side of the spectrum - with a wonderful earthiness mixed backed up with a fruity touch of berries and citrus.
Gorilla Glue #4 is one of the most awarded strains of the past decade, so it comes as no surprise that Gorilla Cookies is up there with the best top-shelf options currently available. Any strain that can stay at the very top of the game for more than half a decade is a strain worthy of any grower’s arsenal, commercial and home cultivator alike.
With a flowering period of 9 to 10 weeks, she is much speedier than many Sativa-heavy options and makes for a great option for those looking to pump out a few runs per year.
