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.

Yield and Growth Habit

Royal Gorilla isn’t necessarily a strain that you would choose for her yields, which are in fact quite moderate - the focus here is on the quality of the bud, rather than the quantity. You can grow Royal Gorilla indoors or outdoors, where she will grow massive buds that will have wonderful lime-green leaves. Thanks to her strong resin production, her leaves will become covered with an abundance of trichomes, that will beautifully sparkle in the sun!


Some of Royal Gorilla averages a THC content of 24%-26%, but certain phenotypes have the ability to surpass this when grown expertly. She induces a very potent effect that is incredibly relaxing - superb for chilling and stress relief. However, what makes Royal Gorilla’s high so special is that this chilled effect is balanced with an uplifting and happy high. Her potency also makes Royal Gorilla a good strain for medicinal users who want a strong herb to help with the management of their symptoms.

Royal Gorilla, which is a balanced 50% Indica/Sativa hybrid, has delightfully superb earthy and sweet tones, complemented nicely with additional notes of lemon and pine. It makes for a great-tasting smoke that won’t disappoint even the pickiest of cannabis connoisseurs.

The strain has already won multiple awards, such as the 2014 Cannabis Cup and the 2015 World Cannabis Cup, where she won first place in the best hybrid category.

In case it isn’t already clear by now, Royal Gorilla is truly an outstanding hybrid with fans across the globe. She is well worth every growers time!

    Title : Sehr stark
    Comment : Die Royal Gorilla ist ein wahnsinnig potente Sorte. Ich hatte mir eine Pflanze gegönnt, da ich etwas stutzig in der RQS Beschreibung geworden bin, was den THC gehalt anbelangen soll. Nunja, sie hält definitiv, was versprochen wird. Der Effekt gleicht schon fast einem Amboss, den man vor den Kopf bekommt. Die Wirkung ist ausgenommen stark und reißt einen nach dem Rauchen direkt aufs höchste lvl und wirkt sich in der Intensität mindestens eine Stunde aus, ehe man langsam wieder auf die Erde zurück schwebt. Es ist eine hochwachsende Pflanze, der Ertrag auf Erde mit biologischen Düngemitteln und einer 250W NDL lag bei ca 45 g trocken. Die Pflanze ist nix für Anfänger und Stress hält sie auch nicht besonders gut aus, dass musste ich leider bemerken, da die Pflanze kurzzeitig gezwittert und alle übrigen Sorten bestäubt hat. Mittlerweile bin ich sehr froh darüber, dass Sie es gemacht hat, da ich nun Samen von 6 verschiedenen Genetiken mit Royal Gorilla Anteil habe, die auch zu 90% weibliche Pflanzen hervorbringen und bisher 8/9 sehr stabile Nachfahren ergaben. :D Trotz des Zwitterns, das ich mir definitiv auf die eigene Kappe zuschreiben kann, bin ich sehr zufrieden mit der Sorte und kann wärmstens weiterempfehlen.. diese Potenz sollte jeder mal probiert haben!

bonjour est ce une variété à autofloraison, et si non, quand et comment déclencher la floraison? merci

Royal Queen Seeds Team

This is a Feminized Strain, we should have the autoflowering version soon. You can make her grown for few weeks (depending on how big you want it to be) and then change the light schedule to lead her to flowering stage.
