Gorilla Glue strain has to change name after conflict with actual Gorilla Glue
Gorilla Glue is one of the best indica strains out there -- it will couchlock you into a pleasant haze like nobody's business. You'll have to use a different name next time you hit up your dealer or dispensary, though, because the company behind the strain (now known as GG Strains) has had to change the name. Gorilla Glue, the company that makes the actual glue itself (the other stick, if you will), took issue with the strain using their name, and they've taken it back.
From now on, Gorilla Glue 4 will be known as GG4, or "Original Glue." Gorilla Glue 5 will be known as GG5, or "New Glue." And Gorilla Glue 1 will be known as GG1, or "Sister Glue." The goal here is to "eliminate any customer confusion between our brands." Sure, as if it was somehow hard to tell the difference between a strain of cannabis and, you know, a liquid adhesive, but it's true that the glue had the name first, so there you go.
We'd have to assume that as marijuana gets more popular and more legal across the country, there will be some other conflicts here -- Girl Scout Cookies and Death Star, we're looking at you. At any rate, we'll have to cross those bridges when we get there. Gorilla Glue -- sorry, the GG strains -- have already been renamed on database sites like Leafly, so it seems like the matter has come to a stable conclusion. Next time you're looking for some very dank indica, just remember to go GG instead of the old name.
