Editorials and critiques of the best businesses and strains in the industry.
If you’ve ever wandered aimlessly through a dispensary, unsure of what savvy new delicacy to sample, it pays big to think outside the box. Gorilla Glue #4 Rosin from Altitude Organic Medicine (AOM) is one of those prime examples. With the potent genetics of Chemsis, Chocolate Diesel and Sour Dubb, this award-winning favorite just got a verdant makeover by AOM’s solventless experts.
Our sample came to us with the appearance of a luxurious boutique-made soap, pungently peppery, and sticky as the actual adhesive. With a pleasantly surprising simplicity, the viscosity made for a nice dab; very little was left on the wax paper to waste. The artisan quality was on showcase as the specimen easily pulled apart into small tacky balls, leaving little residue on the fingers, save the pleasurable fragrance.
The first hit immediately put us in the backs of our seats but the full impact was delayed. It came on slow at first, then pulled forth in a powerful undertow. A wave of euphoria drowned out the worries of the day while the calming effects of the mighty Gorilla sat on our bodies like a heavy cloud. Then it crept to the extremities. A hounding thirst came out of nowhere, but at least without any debilitating cottonmouth.
One critic claimed that this Rosin high was one of the “longest-lasting I’ve ever tried”, while the others could only muster lackadaisical head nods in agreement. Her effects lasted 3-5 hours or even longer during daytime. Insomniacs may take heart: an extra dab before bed and you’ll be out for the night. We were also overcome with midnight munchies of a beastly appetite: barbecue chicken, chocolate peanut butter porters and salt water taffy all made great snacks for a laid-back movie.
