When the new strain came out Nevada breeders preferred to call it “GG#4” or “Gorilla Glue #4.” However, it has been quite a while since they lost the naming battle as the strain came to be referred to as “Original Glue” – claiming its position as the first and best of the Glue phenomenon.
The discovery of the strain was almost purely by accident. A Nevada breeder noticed that some of the crops he was tending to had a lot of resin and stuck to his hands as he was trimming. Cannabis aficionados have since taken to the Original Glue that has taken the markets by storm as it inspired knockoffs, unlicensed crosses, and exclusive licensing deals from “GG Strains” the parent company. What makes it such a popular strain is that it takes Sour Diesel one of the most loved strains and triple backcrosses, before mixing it up with Chocolate Thai.
The end product is one of the most unique cannabis strains that hits strong with its indica hybrid scent a combination of chocolate, pine, and fuel. This just goes on to explain the scramble to have the little Glue in almost any garden you find out there. What makes the product so widespread is that the Original Glue seeds and their 2019 crosses can be found almost anywhere online. The following are some of the best places to get your seeds and their clones:
Buying Seeds across the Globe
GG Strains based in Nevada is the company that provides the Original Glue that also went by GG4 OR Gorilla Glue #4. All growers get their strains from the company, which has the original genetics of the strain that it licenses out to authorized cultivators. One such company that has the license to provide such seeds is Pure Sativa that brands its product with “Original Glue S1.”
Some online seed banks claim to have and sell the Original Glue genetics, but this is highly unlikely.
Since the legal status of selling cannabis online varies by country and state it is important to know the law before using any online seed banks. One can get seeds from seed banks outside the US but US Customs will not allow anyone to bring cannabis seeds into the country since it is still illegal to do so.
As it stands, the easiest places where one can find Glue in the US are Colorado, Oregon, and California.
Buying the Seeds in California
It is impossible to buy the official Glue clones in California, given that GG Strains does not sell the product in the state.
Nonetheless, non-official clones and their Original Glue seeds counterparts can be found in more than 500 delivery services and recreational stores across the state. Buyers need to be over 21 years of age before they are allowed to make cash purchases.
One of the biggest sellers is Dark Heart Nursery that sells the Original Glue Clones in outlets such as:
- Airfield Supply in San Jose
- BARC Collective in LA
