This sample is a cross of Gorilla Glue #4 and Clementine. The label reads it’s 20.4% THC and 0.36% CBD. It was harvested on July 30th and tested on September 2nd. That’s the longest cure time we have seen in Arkansas. It’s a 60% Indica dominate hybrid.
The look rates 9 out of 10. Gorilla’d Cheese is a sight for sore eyes. The kief is literally falling off the 7 gram sample. Purple patches are backed up by a field of yellow green with sandy colored pistils reaching towards the sky. I’m pleased to say it’s shedding more kief than I have gotten out of my grinder in some time. ~
The smell rates 8 out of 10. The nose on this strain is a little stinkier than most. It made my editor turn up her nose. The cultivator lists the easily detected Limonene, the mildly present Beta-Myrcene, spicy notes of Beta-Caryophyllene and the well known Alpha-Pinenene. We now introduce a new terp called Elemene. This terp is known from the ginger plant and has a spicy floral aroma. It is thought to have anti-cancerous properties. The smell put simply is citrus, pine, skunk and spice. When smelling the empty jar, it has the pungent stinky foot smell that that cheese lovers chase.
The cure rates 8 out 10. The biggest difference I see in both samples from Delta that I’ve reviewed compared to other cultivators is the the gap between the harvest date and the testing date. Gorilla’d Cheese has a 33 day cure! The tricomb heads are mostly clouded with about 10% amber colored. The nugs pass the squeeze test and all the tricomb heads seem to be present. I would like to see a bigger percentage of amber colored tricomb heads.
The taste rates 9 out of 10. I rolled a half gram joint in an OCB Virgin paper with a tip. With the dry hit, I found the dominate flavors of lemon and skunk. After lighting the floral taste of Elemene and the classic skunk flavors are most prominent, making the taste much less complex compared to the smell. It’s very pleasant and makes me reminiscent of the 1990’s skunk, only a little more peppery than I remember.
The effect rates 8 out of 10. This strain is known to treat mood disorders and lack of appetite. Its a stress buster that might make you sleepy. I found after half the joint had gone up in smoke that the Pinenene had cleared the congestion in my face and chest. This has a nice body effect but beware: there is a strong Sativa self observance effect as well. I would be interested to know how if anxiety patients have any issues with the “Sativa wings” that I think this strain packs. My muscles are relaxed and my hands feel heavy, but I’m not getting any sedation from the half gram. I’m pleased with this for a morning medication for my pain and stress relief.
~ Over all Gorilla’d Cheese rates 8.4. I can say I’m impressed with Delta’s efforts.
