Triple G gets its name from the cross which created it, viz. GG#4, previously known as Gorilla Glue #4, and Gelato #33. Already big hitters in themselves, brought together in this new 85% indica hybrid created something quite awesome in terms of both effect and flavour. Novices beware!
Indoor growers will find its height of 90 - 140 cm. quite manageable. Topping will create more bud sites and judicious pruning will allow greater light penetration, both borne well by the plants. After a flowering time of 8 - 9 weeks yields of 525 - 575 gr/m2 should be obtained.
Outdoor northern hemisphere harvests won't be ready until the middle of October so this will restrict cultivation to those regions which experience fine and weather until then at least. Plants in this environment can reach as high as 180 cm. with each plant capable of producing between 600 - 650 gr.
These plants grow a large quantity of dense, spiky buds decorated with orange pistils and covered with heavy resin production. Scents of earth, spices and diesel fuel are accompanied by a sweet, earthy pine taste with chocolate, berry and candy notes.
With 26% THC the effect is fast and initially euphoric, a ride which the more experienced will thoroughly enjoy but one which might be too much for the unaccustomed. The second phase becomes much more introspective and contemplative.
Therapeutically Triple G may well be helpful to those suffering with appetite loss, insomnia or chronic pain conditions.
