Mother Gorilla combines the world-renowned strength of Gorilla Glue #4 with the terpene-rich charm of Reina Madre. Mother Gorilla is a new and improved version of Royal Madre. The original strain is a cross between Jack the Ripper and Reina Madre (Queen Mother). She’s a hard-hitting sativa variety that provides a cerebral effect, but we saw room for improvement.
We wanted to elevate her potency to new heights. It only made sense to invite Gorilla genetics to the party. Our expert breeders undertook the ambitious challenge of harnessing Reina Madre and crossing her with Gorilla Glue (GG #4).
Reina Madre served as an excellent genetic base for the cross. Her impressive THC level and exhilarating sativa high gave us a lot to work with. Plus, she contains a complex terpene profile featuring sweet, sour, and spicy tones. Mother Gorilla inherited many of these traits.
Effect, Flavour, and Aroma of Mother Gorilla
Mother Gorilla provides a stimulating effect typical to sativa-dominant varieties. However, her high doesn’t cause unwanted jitters or paranoia. Instead, it’s the perfect level of energy and excitation. She swiftly wakes up the mind and gets the neurons firing, without being overwhelming. Users will enjoy a motivating and creative mindset that, in small doses, can be good for artistic and athletic ventures. Smoke enough of her flowers, though, and the effect becomes completely euphoric.
Growing Mother Gorilla
Mother Gorilla is an easy photoperiod strain to grow. She maintains a medium height of 140–180cm and will be ready to harvest after a very reasonable flowering period for a sativa-dominant strain. Those cultivating the strain indoors can expect a yield of up to 500g/m² after only 9–10 weeks. Plants grown outdoors offer a maximum return of 650g/plant and will be ready to harvest at the beginning of October.
