Gorilla Glue #4 from Oasis

Gorilla Glue #4 from Oasis

May 21, 2019

Gorilla Glue #4 is a potent hybrid worth the trip to Oasis, especially if you’re into crystals. Heralding from a Chemsis, Chocolate Diesel and Sour Dubb background, there’s a reason it got named after the popular adhesive: stickiness from mega trichome-cover had this morsel nearly dripping. We couldn’t help but note how scrumptious the bud appeared; the huge bulbous bracts and dark fiery hairs were sugar-coated as if dusted at a bakery and hand-trimmed to perfection.

Thankfully, sweetness paired strangely well with the stench of glue, which permeated the bud, but not in a bad way. The aroma filled the room with undertones of roasted caramel and even a slight peppery pungence of Exodus Cheese. The smoke was clean and flavorful, an ode to Oasis’ chemical/pesticide-free crops, grown in 100% organic living soil.

Oh, how she made introductions. Not debilitating but pleasurable, the initial spark struck lightning, square between the eyes. She was a mover, a stretcher, a thinker. We reeled back, muscles dragged toward the floor. One critic nearly drooled. The gradual, gasping return from momentary vertigo was accompanied by a cloudy cognition and jolted limbs, but we were entirely unable to properly describe what was happening.

Muscle tension released rest of the body, and sitting was necessary, no matter how awake we felt. It was not a social strain, but reflective; a notebook came in handy to record epiphanies and startling inspirations. We didn’t lose control or mental ability; nor was the psychedelic riptide inebriating--in fact, there were no giggles or embarrassing impairment. Great for creative endeavors and lucid production, we had both gumption to finish work, plus the levity to face the mundane.

As the high grew, time vanished, and not in the casual sense. The clock could have struck midnight without our knowledge. Twenty minutes suddenly turned into two hours, and it wasn’t long before we began an eternal descent that was like waking from a dream. Critics agreed: Be prepared, and keep the Gorilla around for those days when you need something stronger than everything else.
