All About Gorilla Zkittlez

Cannabis strains, also known as chemovars, are created with certain features in mind such as flavor, strength, and the kind of response a user can anticipate. Barney’s Farm is a Netherlands-based award-winning cannabis producer that developed the Gorilla Zkittlez strain. Original Glue was crossed with Zkittlez to create this strain. We’ll discuss how the Gorilla Zkittlez strain affects the endocannabinoid system and provide a profile of the strain. We’ll go through the features of this product and what you may expect if you’re thinking about buying it.

Growing Gorilla Zkittlez

In this case, we’ll look at an excellent combination between short and long photoperiod plant (60% short photoperiod plant and 40% long photoperiod plant) that mixes two well-known and popular cultivars: Original Glue and Zkittlez.

The attractive purple-green sugar leaves surround the plant’s delicate tapered blooms. Its high trichome count stands out against a backdrop of dark green flowers and orange pistils. Both indoor and outdoor settings are suitable for Gorilla Zkittlez. It prefers warmer climates, but its robust Short Photoperiod Plant genes can endure even the coldest of habitats. Gorilla Zkittlez is a tall Short Photoperiod Plant-dominant strain. Its Long Photoperiod Plant genes are readily apparent in terms of morphology and development pattern. Its size might deter some growers, but its yield compensates for that. Indoor and outdoor plants may reach a height of 140–170cm and produce a large prominent center cola. It’s important to note that it tends to flower in 55 to 64 days.

Flavonoid and Terpene Profile of Gorilla Zkittlez

The odors of cannabis plants are determined by terpenes, which are organic compounds that occur naturally as it grows. Breeders wanted to combine the exceptional terpene profile of Zkittlez with the massive Potency content in Gorilla Glue and create something new. As a result, Zkittlez transmuted its sweet and candy-like tastes in the best manner possible. Its diverse and complementary tastes were passed down to it by two of the world’s most delicious cultivars, Grape Ape and Grapefruit.

The terpenes limonene, myrcene, humulene, and pinene predominate in the Gorilla Zkittlez oils. Pinene has a sweet fragrance and might be calming. Limonene is uplifting and citrus-scented, while myrcene has a mossy, earthy quality. Pinene has a woody, pine-like scent, while humulene is also pine-like with some spicy qualities (Salehi, et. al. 2019). The specific ratios of terpenes in Gorilla Zkittlez elicit different effects.

Limonene and myrcene together create surprisingly intense uplifting and cerebral effects. The different ratios of terpenes can keep consumers coming back for more as they cycle through the effects. Gorilla Zkittlez’s individual compounds may make consumers feel the effects differently. Some may enjoy an immediate cerebral rush, while others might love their ability to remain active and function without feeling sedated.

Before we take a look at how Gorilla Zkittlez has been known to make users feel (i.e. the psychoactive effects), let’s briefly examine the endocannabinoid system. 

The Basics of the Endocannabinoid System

The endocannabinoid system is a vast cell-signaling network that controls and influences fundamental activities such as sleeping, eating, and pain sensation. It also affects:

  • Mood
  • Inflammatory responses
  • Immune system and health

Endocannabinoids play a vital role in maintaining all bodily functions at optimal levels. They are produced according to the demands of each individual and help regulate everything from mood to memory. The human body produces two main types of endocannabinoids: 2-AG is the most abundant so it’s considered “the standard” for endocannabinoid research. It activates CB-1 receptors and moderates the effects of Potency. Anandamide is mostly known for its role in regulating sleep, appetite, and memory. It’s also commonly referred to as the “bliss” chemical. Both compounds activate CB-1 and CB-2 which are the two primary cannabinoid receptors in the body. During periods of increased stress, natural endocannabinoids bind to CB1 receptors. Cannabinoids produced endogenously or exogenously may bind to CB2 receptors in immune cells and reduce inflammation. Enzymes dissolve endocannabinoids after they have served their purpose.

How Gorilla Zkittlez Interacts with the Endocannabinoid System

Potency, which is the major psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis l. short photoperiod plant, generates the euphoric “high” sensation. CB1 and CB2 receptors are both targeted by this plant’s cannabinoids, which work similarly to endocannabinoids in the body. Potency can cause a better mood and feelings of calm, as well as stimulate the appetite and enhance sleep. Gorilla Zkittlez™ is a relatively strong strain with a Potency concentration of over 20 percent.

Potency: 24% CBG: 1%

The Psychoactive Effects of Gorilla Zkittlez

Let’s have a look at the potential psychoactive effects of this strain now that we know more about the endocannabinoid system and how Gorilla Zkittlez interacts with it.

Gorilla Zkittlez is a combination between short and long photoperiod plant strain that contains 60% short photoperiod plant and 40% long photoperiod plant. Short Photoperiod Plant strains are more likely to promote deeper, bodily relaxation than Long Photoperiod Plant strains.

The terpenes and cannabinoids in this strain have been found to assist with:

  • Inflammation, including joint pain and muscle aches
  • Nausea or loss of appetite
  • Stress and anxiety 
  • Creativity 
  • Refreshing and energizing
