Lineage: Peanut Butter Breath x Gorilla Butter
Breeder: Fresh Coast Seed Co. (Michigan)
Gorilla Nut is a strain created by Fresh Coast Seed Company, a group of cannabis breeders from Michigan. They are perhaps better known for one of their other creations, Gorilla Butter, which has won several awards.They created Gorilla Butter by crossing the ever so popular Gorilla Glue with another famed Michigan strain: Peanut Butter Breath.
Since 2019, Gorilla Butter has made waves in Michigan and around the U.S, and has become somewhat of a flagship strain for the group.
So perhaps they though “if GG4 x Peanut Butter Breath was a hit, why not Gorilla Butter x Peanut Butter Breath?” That must have been their thinking. But they weren’t wrong.
About the Strain: Gorilla Nut
Gorilla Nut is the child of Gorilla Butter and Peanut Butter Breath, and is a connoisseur’s delight. At first sight, the nugs are dark in appearance. A closer look reveals frosty green nugs that are layered with purple and dark green texture and contrasted with bright, orange pistols.
The Aroma and flavor of Gorilla Nut strain
Dominated by the terpenes Caryophyllene, Humulene and Limonene, this pheno has plenty of aroma.
The nose is earthy and nutty, but the flavor is sweet and spicy. Sometimes I open the bag and get straight peanut butter. Other batches have been a bit more complex; perhaps nuts, dark chocolate, and sea salt.
The experience of smoking Gorilla Nut
Potent and flavorful, this strain hits like an 800 lb. gorilla. The high is a heavy one, and very sedative. This strain is great for night time use, when you are winding down and looking to relax. This train can help with getting to bed on time, as you will find yourself not wanting to continue doing whatever you were doing.
If you want some dank herb with great aroma, flavor, and potency, this cultivar is a great choice.
