Ginger Glue by Black Sheep Botanicals Cannabis Strain Review & Information

This week I got to sample Ginger Glue, a strain which combines the oh-so-famous gorilla glue with a tropical Jamaican landrace.

Bred by Black Sheep Botanicals in 2016, Ginger Glue is an indica-dominant hybridized strain, and the results of this cross are very nice.

Appearance

This strain is light-green in appearance, giving full view to those delicious trichomes. The bud I sampled was been trimmed to perfection, looking as good as a Cali import nug.

It came in a tin, but I put it in a glass jar before the video. It felt on the dry side so a Boveda Pack might have kept this sample a bit more sticky.

Good nug formation, nicely developed, and good trichome coverage – all the signs of a well-grown sample!

Smell

This initially smelt more like Gorilla Glue, with the clean, sharp pungency I expected from the GG strain.

Grinding up the sample unleashes a different aroma. Still pungent, still clean smelling, but on the sweet side.

Taste

I consumed the Ginger Glue in three ways for my review – first, I dabbed the flower Rosin, which was delicious. I then moved on to my bong, smoking a bowl which made me cough due to its size, before following that up with a session on the Mighty Vaporizer.

All of the above helped me to get a good idea of the flavour of the Ginger glue – I would say vaping is my favourite way to consume, followed by dabbing, followed by smoking.

I could taste the GG notes but also something new, the flavour profile the jamaican landrace was apparent during this section, particularly when vaped, with the vapor taking on a herby, firey sort of taste that differs a lot from other strains including Gorilla Glue.

Effects

As well as the consumption I’ve stated above, I also hit one more bowl during the review video. The culmination of all that smoking, dabbing and vaping left me rather high, rather quickly.

I got a nice wave which had initial promises of an uplift but which quickly transitioned into a body-led relaxation and physical nice feeling.

As this is a different terpene and cannabinoid balance to what I am used to, I suspect it hit me harder than strains, genetic lines which I am more familiar with.

Conclusion

Ginger Glue, Ginger Glue by Black Sheep Botanicals Cannabis Strain Review & Information

Black Sheep Botanicals have done a good job with this strain – the uniqueness of the high and flavour profile make Ginger Glue something different, which in itself is incredibly refreshing when a lot of popular cannabis strains follow similar highs and flavours.

Ginger Glue is not afraid to bring something completely different to the table!
