Royal Gorilla is an insanely powerful hybrid that, until recently, was only available in the US. With THC levels that at times well exceed 25%, she gives a spectacular high of incredible relaxation together with a balancing uplifting euphoria. Because of her potency, Royal Gorilla also has good medicinal potential, which makes her a good choice to help with chronic pains and other ailments.
Royal Gorilla: RQS Works Its Magic With Legendary Strain Gorilla Glue
Without a doubt, Royal Gorilla is one of the most talked about cannabis strains to come out of the US in a long time, quickly making a name for itself as a connoisseur favourite in the states. Her discovery, however, was entirely coincidental. Two breeders from the US, Joesy Whales and Lone Watie, discovered the strain after Joesy’s Chem Sis plants accidently hermied and pollinated his Sour Dubb. We don’t know exactly what made Lonie keep some of the seeds when Joesy tossed the strain out, but what we know is that he later germinated them maybe just out of curiosity and what shot out from the soil was nothing less than the spectacular Royal Gorilla!
Genetics and Potency
The two passionate breeders immediately knew they had created something truly special, and were blown away by the results of their first THC measurements. As if a staggering 24-26% of THC wouldn’t be crazily high enough, some of her phenos are said to have weighed in at an incredible 30% - THC levels which up to this date had never been measured in any strain before.
As for Gorilla Glue’s name, the official story here is that they choose the name because of the strain’s insane resin production that made the two breeders stick to everything after handling their new creation. But given the strain’s super-relaxing effect, Royal Gorilla can also be a perfectly fitting name to describe her deeply relaxing body stone that will “glue” you to your couch, although her high also comes with an uplifting euphoria - making her effect awesomely balanced.
