Gorilla Bomb Strain Review

With a diesel tang and an overtone of chocolate, Gorilla Glue is an enjoyable smoke that’s sure to only grow in popularity.

Although it may not have reached the heights of its famous parents, experienced users should definitely consider this strain for evening usage. 

The Gorilla Bomb high can hit differently every time, so prepare yourself for some variety. Inexperienced users should probably give it a miss – Gorilla Bomb is potent.


With a THC level of 28% on average, Gorilla Bomb hits hard for even experienced users. This is one of the most potent strains developed in recent years, and you really do feel every bit of that strength.

With parents GG#4 and THC Bomb, the effect isn’t unexpected, but it still might surprise. Pace yourself when first using, and wait for the high to come if it doesn’t go off right away. It’s worth the extra time.

What Is Gorilla Bomb Strain?

A sudden explosive high followed by waves of body relaxation, Gorilla Bomb is a powerful choice for an evening or afternoon strain. Expect to find yourself stuck to a chair for several hours.

How Was Gorilla Bomb Developed?

Created by Bomb Seeds, Gorilla Bomb is a cross between Gorilla Glue #4 and THC Bomb. Both wildly popular strains, they were mixed with the aim of creating something absolutely loaded with resin.

The result is the incredible Gorilla Bomb, carefully developed to bring you an immediate euphoria. This is a Sativa heavy hybrid: 60% Sativa, 40% Indica. 


Gorilla Bomb has notes of sweet, but the experience is more savory than anything else. Earth flavors run deep, with notes of resin and pine. Then there’s that heavy tang of diesel fuel, lending a sour edge to the experience.

Finally, a note of sweet, slightly bitter, chocolate rounds off the flavoring. The taste is subtle at first, but it gains intensity in the mouth. The final exhale can be pretty potent.

Odor And Flavor

Everything about Gorilla Bomb is potent, and that includes the aroma. Deep and earthy like a rich pine, the odor hits you straight from the jar. These heavy notes are lifted by the slight overtones of chocolate and diesel.

As it burns, the chocolate and diesel become stronger, and the potent smell turns up a notch. All in all, a good experience. The odor and flavor are enjoyable if not exciting, and the strain hits quick enough that even a connoisseur won’t care too much about tasting.

Physical Appearance

Gorilla Bomb has small and fluffy buds that are forest green in color and interspersed with orange hairs. It’s covered with a thick and sticky coating of trichomes, just like its Gorilla Glue parent. Gorilla Bomb is dense rather than wide.

Grow Info

Growers will be happy to hear that Gorilla Bomb is actually pretty easy to cultivate. It does well both indoors and outdoors, and grows to be a medium-sized plant. Indoors, flowering time is roughly 65 days. Outdoors, expect to harvest after 9 or 10 weeks.

One thing about Gorilla Bomb is that it demands lots of nutrients. Feed it well, and you’ll be rewarded with a resin coating that practically drips.

Be prepared to use some extra strength scissors, and provide lots of headroom. Gorilla Bomb does have a high yield, and the seeds aren’t too expensive.


The “bomb” in Gorilla Bomb is an incredibly accurate description of the kind of effect you can expect. The high is explosive, immediately uplifting the head and then rolling through the body in euphoric waves.

You may find your mind going in and out of focus, as the effect infuses through you. This burst of energy slowly fades, leaving behind an uplifted calm, and gluing you in a happy trance.

Some users will find themselves drifting off, while others will simply stick to the couch. You may not be moving for hours, but you’ll be smiling the whole time. The deep, tingly state can last for a while.

Side Effects

Dry mouth and dry eyes are common side effects. Users have also reported headaches as a possibility to watch out for. Gorilla Bomb is high in THC, so those who are sensitive may want to avoid.

Otherwise, it can cause paranoia and anxiety. Even experienced users should be careful when experimenting with Gorilla Bomb.

The high doesn’t always hit as fast as it can, but pacing your usage is still necessary. Inexperienced users may find themselves stuck to the couch with the very first exhale.

Medical Appointments

The full body relaxation effect of Gorilla Bomb has made it a popular choice for those looking to alleviate pain. It can potentially help with cramps, muscle pain, and even chronic pain.

Other uses have found the strain’s uplifting boost to help with depression and mood swings. The couch-lock effect can also potentially help those with insomnia.

Gorilla Bomb is strong, so it’s not really suitable for daytime treatments. It’s best to save this for the evenings, when you won’t have to worry if you fall asleep.

Similar Strains

There are a couple of strains that are similar to Gorilla Bomb. Lemon Diesel, Sour Banana Sherbet, Stinky Pete, Golden Cobra, and 8 Ball Kush all have some similar qualities.

Of course, it’s worth mentioning the parent strains as well. Gorilla Glue in particular is a good choice for those who like Gorilla Bomb, but want something even stronger.

Strain Cannabinoids

Gorilla Bomb has a THC level of, on average, 28%. Some strains have reportedly been as high as 31%, making it a particularly potent option. As a new strain, there isn’t much information on the other cannabinoids just yet.

Expect these to come when people have had a bit more experience growing and using Gorilla Bomb.
