Effects & Usage



Gorilla Zkittlez is a slightly indica-dominant hybrid that packs a potent punch, providing an intensely euphoric and relaxing trip. The high THC levels of up to 24% and its marvellous, rich aroma and flavour will satisfy even the most seasoned cannabis consumers. In addition, its prestigious lineage consisting of Gorilla Glue and Zkittlez further adds to the strain’s charm.


Gorilla Zkittlez is known for a creeping high that gradually unfolds its effects, lasting several hours. You will first experience an emotional uplift that steadily intensifies to reach a fiercely euphoric state, where your mind is creative, running in many different directions. Expect plenty of happy thoughts that make you chuckle and have a good time. Simultaneously, your body will become heavy and deeply relaxed as all the muscles ease and tensions melt away.

While you may have some of the best ideas and inspiration on this strain, it is better to write them down for another day. Gorilla Zkittlez is so powerful and relaxing that you may not have enough drive to act on your supercharged thoughts. This one is a dreamy, sleepy, happy high – a great companion to lazy days, social gatherings and those evenings when you need a bit of relief. Towards the end of your trip, you will likely get very drowsy – use it to help yourself fall into a deep, peaceful slumber. If you need a good wake-and-bake strain, it is best to look elsewhere – dive deeper into our extensive collection to find a suitable alternative.


Gorilla Zkittlez shines as a remedy for mood disorders thanks to its powerful, uplifting properties, bolstered by limonene. The strain facilitates deep relaxation, thanks to calming myrcene. It can be helpful in stress and anxiety and associated conditions, such as insomnia, by clearing the mind free of worries. Lastly, the potent pain-killing potential of the strain, enhanced by anti-inflammatory caryophyllene and CBG (at 1% concentration), can be utilised to treat chronic pain and other pain-related conditions, such as arthritis, migraines and muscle spasms.

Side effects

Common side effects of Gorilla Zkittlez include dry mouth, dry eyes, and mild headaches. Although this is not a strain that often causes paranoia or anxiety, it may still occur in sensitive users due to the potency of this cultivar. Therefore, always start slow, with just a puff or two, and gradually increase the dosage to minimise the risk of side effects.

Taste & Smell


Gorilla Zkittlez is a feast for all your senses. It features a lovely appearance, with its purple-green leaves covered in an incredibly thick layer of trichomes reminiscent of fresh snow. The dense, tightly-packed deep green buds are interspersed with vibrant pistils. The strain’s aroma transports you to a tropical paradise, boasting sweet tropical fruitiness as well as floral and herbal notes with hints of chocolate. The taste mirrors this tantalising scent – with sweet tropical candy on the inhale and a creamy chocolate note on the exhale. The smoke is dense but gentle enough on the throat and lungs, allowing you to savour the delicious flavours fully.

If you are looking for more flowers with a similarly luscious and complex sensory profile, try Gelato or Biscotti Mintz, too.



Gorilla Zkittlez hails from the Netherlands, the cannabis capital of the world. It was brought about by Barney’s Farm using two champions: Gorilla Glue, a multi-award winner loved for its potent effects and Zkittlez, a delicious fruity hybrid. The resulting strain combines the best of both worlds, resulting in a mind-blowing high with a fabulous, candy-like flavour.

Growing conditions

Cultivating Gorilla Zkittlez requires some attention to detail but is manageable for most growers. This strain can thrive in indoor and outdoor environments, with a preference for warm climates and a consistent temperature of around 20-27 degrees, making it suitable to grow during Thai winter. The plants are susceptible to pests, but surrounding them with chamomile or basil can help keep those diseases at bay.

Within 8 to 9 weeks, you can expect the plants to grow to 1.5-1.8m. Pruning the top is often advised to maximise the already generous yields reaching 500-700 grams per square metre indoors and an astounding 1500-2500 grams per plant outdoors.
