Are you looking to indulge in something extra-specially potent this weekend? Oh, boy, have we got something for you! Today we are giving you the lowdown on one of our favorite potent hybrids – Elmer’s Glue.

If you love a strain with strong genetics, then you will do well to get your hands on a bag of Elmer’s Glue. Stick around to find out what you are missing out on!

What is the Elmer’s Glue Cannabis Strain?

Elmer’s Glue, by Relentless Genetics, is the indica-dominant hybrid bred from the potent and famous Gorilla Glue #4, crossed with The White. This strain is considered by some to be an improvement on GG4’s flavor and trichome production – but we will let you be the judge of that.

Similar to its simian ancestor, this tasty adhesive will stick you to the sofa with its relaxing effects, perfect for anti-anxiety as it leaves you clear-headed. It is famed for its ability to numb the mind, allowing you to let go of nagging concerns – and making it the perfect way to wind down after a long day in the office.

Elmer’s Glue has a pretty potent THC average, with most bags coming out with at least 26% THC! Not for the newby smoker amongst you, we would advise caution with this pungent flower.

If you are looking for a laid back bud that will heighten awareness and makes for an ideal weekend energy boost – then Elmer’s Glue is the super strong bud you are missing from your life.

Elmer’s Glue Cannabis Strain Appearance, Aroma, Flavor


If the name wasn’t a big give away, let us tell you that Elmer’s Glue is amongst the stickiest out there on the market. With incredible trichome coverage (making for the impressive THC range), this tasty bud is filled top to toe with frosty crystals and sickly sweet trichomes that make for a remarkable flavor profile.

Beyond the generous amounts of resin and abundance of trichomes, the appearance of Elmer’s Glue is pretty standard – but cultivators should be happy enough with the syrupy, sticky layers this bud offers.


A complex bind of woody notes, with an almost subtle spice concealed beneath – the smell of Elmer’s Glue is pretty herbal. There is a tangible note of chemical within the overall aroma of this bud which can certainly turn some users off – but it is all personal preference!

Overall users report the smell of this bud to be pretty dank with a serious incense, herbal vibe that lingers long after the smoke is gone.


Similar to its aroma, Elmer’s Glue offers notes of spice, but is pretty overwhelmingly earthy in its palette. Great if you’re not a great fan of the sweeter buds out there, this is dank, heavy and sharp on the taste buds.

With hints of lemon and citrus, combined with diesel and dank earth it is a real savory strain that will have you spaced out before you know it!

Elmer’s Glue Grow Info

Not considered to be overly challenging, we would say that beginner cultivators can benefit from giving this stain a go for themselves. Although sold online, it appears this particular strain is not often re-stocked in good time, so we recommend taking clippings for a more efficient grow.

Elmer’s Glue can be cultivated both indoors (where the plants will have a flowering time of approximately 67 days) and outdoors. It is also worth noting that Relentless Genetics’ Elmer’s Glue is only available as feminized seeds.

If you are opting to grow outdoors, then she will require a good dose of sunshine, with a semi-humid climate. She will likely require a basic level of maintenance due to the indica structure of the plant, making for a short and bushy growth. Grown indoors, Elmer’s Glue can be ready within 9-10 weeks.

Elmer’s Glue Medicinal Benefits

Stick with Elmer’s Glue for an elevating cerebral experience that uplifts the mind and keeps users flying high through happy euphoria. Benefit from the influx of energy that can strike hard against depression and fatigue to stimulate a clear-headedness that promotes focus.

Elmer’s Glue does not dampen awareness so that you can enjoy this bud alone or in good company. You might well find yourself getting distracted by small details you never noticed before, making it a great conversation starter.

These effects give Elmer’s Glue a edge in treating conditions such as fatigue, ADD/ADHD, depression, and insomnia. Sedative effects will creep in over time and can leave you feeling physically at ease with relaxation, making it great for easing aches and pains, including headaches, stomach aches and pain from injury.

Many users report Elmer’s Glue to be particularly useful in treating inflammation, and it can lead to a restful night of uninterrupted slumber.

If you’re on the hunt for something euphoric, uplifting, and downright therapeutic, then this bud is undoubtedly for you!

Potential Side Effects of Elmer’s Glue

Patients struggling with severe panic or anxiety should steer clear of Elmer’s Glue due to its highly introspective effects which can lead to panic and paranoia.

Of course, like with any strain we cover, we always advise newbies to tread carefully, particularly with the stronger buds like this one. Users can also expect dry eyes and cottonmouth.
