Royal Gorilla: The Descendant of Sour Dubb, Chem Sis, and Chocolate Diesel
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!

The minute we laid eyes on Royal Gorilla, we were star-struck. Her dense flowers glistened with a frosty coat of resin and filled the room with her recognisable earthy sweet aroma. After testing her THC levels, we were blown away to see that buds packed an average of 24–26% THC, with some phenos testing as high as 30%.
Like the original GG4, Royal Gorilla produces massively sticky flowers and relaxing effects that'll melt away your worries and leave you glued to the couch in a deep, relaxing trance. And we're not the only people impressed—Royal Gorilla won 1st place in the New Strains category at the Highlife Cannabis Cup, as well as 3rd place in the Indica category.
