Gorilla Zkittlez Grow Report

When the ‘super ape’ GG4 indulges in a Zkittlez candy, the result is nothing short of spectacular! The breeders at Barney’s Farm have masterfully combined two of the most sought-after genetics of recent years, resulting in the exciting Gorilla Zkittlez strain.

GG4, the mighty Kong of cannabis varieties, prowled and devoured the ‘super candy’ Zkittlez, creating a highly compatible breeding pair.

This all-Californian breeding constellation swiftly bore fruit, resulting in a mega hybrid with a slight indica dominance (60%) and a high THC count of 24%. This guarantees potent psychoactivity and medicinal effects, offering total relaxation.

Gorilla Zkittlez boasts the same impressive resin coat as GG4, with an ocean of trichomes engulfing the plants. However, it’s not just the resin that impresses growers; the above-average yields of 500-700g make them potential heavyweights.

This impressive yield is achieved within a mere 8-9 weeks of flowering. The outdoor specifications of this strain are equally sensational. Despite a height of only 1.7 meters, outdoor Gorilla Zkittlez plants can yield up to 2.5 kilos in optimal conditions.

The resulting monster buds are well-equipped with good mold resistance, rated at 4 out of 5 by Barney’s. Under natural light, maturity sets in between the first and second week of October.

The Doc’s Debut with Barney’s Farm Genetics

The Doc had been eyeing Barney’s Farm strains for quite some time, and their newly released Gorilla Zkittlez provided the perfect incentive to finally test them out. Within 72 hours, the two feminized seeds sown emerged from the surface.

They exhibited lush, bushy growth with unusually shiny, oily-looking dark green shade leaves. After three weeks in the vegetative stage, The Doc triggered flowering by switching to a 12/12 light cycle.

The plants displayed a growth pattern more reminiscent of a classic indica than expected, considering their mere 60% indica composition: dense, stout, with short internodal spaces, and standing 25 and 27 cm tall.

Resin Production Begins Early

Upon entering the flowering stage, the plants revealed a strong stretching instinct, indicating the activation of the Gorilla Zkittlez’s sativa genes.

Newly formed leaves became thinner, maintaining their oily gloss. Remarkably, the resin production of Gorilla Zkittlez began super early, with the calyxes and young flower leaves displaying a silvery-white sparkle as early as 3.5 weeks after the light cycle switch.

Four weeks into flowering, stem and branch elongation had ceased, leaving the two plants standing at about 60 cm tall.

Yield of King Kong Proportions

The bud structure was distinctly indica-dominant, forming thick bulbous chunks that, after 58 and 60 days of flowering, were hard, swollen, and densely covered in opulent resin layers. Even the upper shade leaves were jeweled with crystals throughout.

The intense aroma was an unusual blend of sweet tropical fruit notes, hints of spicy black hashish, and a dash of musk. At the end of their life cycle, the two plants stood at 60 and 67 cm tall, with a round-bodied, compact shape.

The Doc was overjoyed when he weighed his Gorilla Zkittlez buds, which were as hard as a gorilla’s chest and covered in a rich layer of trichomes.

The yield of both plants together amounted to a phenomenal 225 grams. “Truly gigantic King Kong dimensions,” exclaimed a flabbergasted Doc, “especially considering the relatively small size of these plants. They’ve almost yielded twice as many grams as they’ve measured in centimeters, which is truly unbelievable.

Vaporizing Gorilla Zkittlez: “As if King Kong Had Tenderized My Head and Body”

When The Doc broke open a bud for his first vaporizer test session, he was greeted with a sophisticated two-phase fragrance: an initial exotic fruity sweetness reminiscent of mango, followed by a lingering heavy hash scent. The effect of Gorilla Zkittlez set in after three deep hits from his “Mighty” vaporizer.

The gorilla is flexing his THC muscles, starting to tenderize my head and body!” The Doc laughed. After two more hits, The Doc was completely relaxed, enjoying some mellow jazz music on his sofa. The deeply relaxing effect lasted for more than two hours, making him dreamy but not sleepy.

In conclusion, The Doc stated, “This mega hybrid has kept all its promises, proven to be a veritable yield and resin production hit with an amazing potency and aroma, plus a moderate flowering time and handy indoor size – everything’s just perfect with this strain. A cheer for US west coast genetics!
