Gorilla Zkittlez Auto has a pretty interesting heritage. It’s a cross between the uber-legendary Gorilla Glue (which was itself a crossing of Chem’s Sister, Chocolate Diesel, and Sour Dubb) and the autoflowering strain Zkittlez, a combination of Grape Ape and Grapefruit. As such, it has all the funk and flavor of classic GG with a slightly modified and sweetened palette, and a touch of autoflowering flair thanks to the Zkittlez genetics.
This one sits on the Indica side of the dominance scale, with a genetic split somewhere in the region of 70/30. First released to the public cultivation market just 2 years ago, this autoflowering has all the blessings of new school genetic advantages that are making autos in general hard to ignore.
No longer banished to the shadows, autoflowering strains honestly can stack up the very best photoperiod options now. And they do so in a much shorter period.
Whenever you are looking at a plus 25% THC strain, it should be pretty obvious that it's a big hitter, and Gorilla Zkittlez Auto jumps a few percentage points further. As with almost every newer strain, you're looking at hybrid genetics.
Most consumers are looking for a balanced high, with a little dash of both Sativa and Indica thrown in. This is 100 percent the case here, with the high beginning with a slowly building euphoria, and depending on the amount you've smoked, that feeling can reach some pretty ridiculous levels.
Sativa-dominant hybrids often come with an energy boost, but as Gorilla Zkittlez has a leaning towards the Indica side, this is replaced with a slight couchlock. This will be more noticeable if you're a lightweight smoker but can also be felt in heavier smokers, albeit in a much more mellow fashion. In either case, after the initial rush, you can expect an intense feeling of relaxation and a high chance of some heavy eyelids.
CBD levels are at a minimum, but that doesn't make this strain totally useless for medicinal users. It may not have the medicinal potential of a really high-CBD strain, but Gorilla Zkittlez Auto can still be used to help lower stress and anxiety levels, and the body relaxation provided can ease a wide range of aches and pains.
Gorilla Zkittlez Auto is a pretty special little strain. Maybe little isn't the right adjective, since she's known to push skyward of 1.5 meters (5 feet) on rare occasions, but most phenos will stick at the 1.2 meter (4 feet) mark or lower. This strain has a huge push in the first 2 weeks of flower, so make sure you've got plenty of headspace for her to move into.
Alternatively, you can look at some LST techniques. Stick well clear of options that will induce too much stress (like topping, fimming, or super cropping), as autos don't have the time to bounce back from really heavy work. We tend to stick to either tying down the main stalk and branches or setting up a scrog net to keep the canopy at one even level. This helps distribute the main growth hormones among all of the budding sites and increases overall yield.
Gorilla Zkittlez Auto is a perfect choice for both indoor and outdoor growing. She actually prefers slightly cooler temperate climates when compared to most autoflowering strains, but she will do great in almost any climatic range (within reason, of course).
This strain can be a plant-and-forget affair. Start her out in a 3.5-gallon pot full of top-class organic soil and you should be good to go for the first month at least!
The Indica dominance of Gorilla Zkittlez Auto's genetics can be seen in her structure and bud formation. She has a wide and characteristically broad leaf, with an intense solid bud formation. The color palette can range from light green all the way to magenta hues, but if you are looking for that purple punch then you'll most likely need to keep the nighttime (or lights off) temps at least 8 degrees F cooler than daytime temps during the last 2 weeks of flower.
Gorilla Zkittlez Auto doesn't skimp on resin either, and you'll find yourself scraping the walls of your curing jar to get that sticky-icky goodness. The aroma is sweet and fruity, with some earthy notes sneaking in between the tang of purple berries. It's an absolutely delicious smell that is both funky and fresh in all the right ways.
There's a consensus around the office that Gorilla Zkittlez Auto is up there with the top 5 autoflowering options we have ever grown, especially indoors. Under a good LED panel, and with the right climatic conditions, this strain just produces such ridiculous amounts of the dankest nuggets of pure joy.
I've personally seen plants hit the 550gr/m² mark which is often quoted but rarely reached. The smoke, once properly cured, is so goddamn tasty - and the high is like a warm hug from mom mixed with a creative kick that really gets you going.
We've talked a fair bit about the aroma, but what about the actual flavor and mouth feel?
A true celebration of new and old-school genetics in one gorgeous bundle, Gorilla Zkittlez Auto has a flavor profile that is hard to beat. The beginning sweet and sour citrus notes perfectly balance each other, and the soft hints of berry and earth add an extra depth of flavor and help round out the overall mouth satisfaction.
The smoke is thick but easy on the throat, making it a great way for newer smokers or those sensitive souls among us who are a little touchy when it comes to harsher smoke. Remember, the longer you let the buds cure, the smoother that flavor will be.
