Gorilla Glue 4, GG Strains Rebranding Agreement with Gorilla Glue Co.
Las Vegas, Nevada, September 22, 2017- Everyone’s favorite award-winning strains are rebranding after an agreement with The Gorilla Glue Company regarding the previous names of our strains. After months of discussions, GG Strains and The Gorilla Glue Company reached this agreement to help eliminate any customer confusion between our brands. Following a brief marketing transition period, GG Strains, our cultivators and our distributors will ONLY be using the following guidelines for naming and referring to our deliciously sticky strains (it’s very important any publication likely to write about our company or products also follow these same guidelines). Beginning on September 19, 2017 only GG Strains licensed cultivators or distributors, where permitted by law, will the authorized credentials and have GG Strains authentic strains sold as: - GG4, Original Glue - formally known as Gorilla Glue 4
- GG5, New Glue - formally known as Gorilla Glue 5
- GG1, Sister Glue - formally known as Gorilla Glue 1
As this could prove to be a new pressing issue in our industry, we’re asking all publications, partners and of course our consumers to help us get the word out about our rebranding. We’re excited this entire ordeal is behind us, allowing us to get back to what we do best. We’re moving forward, and this agreement helps to ensure our consumers are receiving the authentic, award-winning cannabis strains bred by the experts at GG Strains.

KENTUCKY: Kentucky state Sen. Dan Seum is proposing the legalization of adult-use cannabis as part of an effort to fund the state's faltering pension systems. Seum said he sees the plan as a "jobs bill" and pointed to the state’s bourbon industry as an indicator of the ancillary jobs that could be generated from legalization.
INDIANA: Indiana excise police – the state's Alcohol and Tobacco Commission law enforcement arm – has continued citing stores for selling CBD products despite saying in August the products were allowed and they would back off from retailers carrying hemp-derived CBD unless the stores were "clearly violating" state law.
GORILLA GLUE: The makers of the adhesive Gorilla Glue have settled with GG Strains LLC, the cannabis company with strains called Gorilla Glue #1 , Gorilla Glue #4 , and Gorilla Glue #5 , in a trademark infringement case. The agreement does not involve any monetary penalties or transactions, though GG Strains LLC will stop using the word "gorilla" in their strain names and products — the rebranding plan will see the strains known simply as “GG1,” “GG4,” and “GG5.”
ENTERTAINMENT: Digital infotainment network Cannabis Club TV has purchased dispensary digital marketing company Vast Display Network in a stock/cash deal worth $2.75 million. The network is currently developing a cannabis-centric travel show with comedian Tommy Chong, who announced the show's development in August and has described it as similar to "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations."

Going to Strausburg the other day really stirred up some memories for me. Anyone that knew my dad knew how much he loved his trains--especially his GG-1's. I showed Donald all the pics we saw on Sunday and he reminded me of the pic I took in front of the GG-1 we took years ago even way before the kids were ever born (my husband has the best memory of anyone I have ever met in my life!). Here Michael is in front of the same train with all of his buddies. I hope my dad saw us on Sunday and especially my son's excitement when he saw his grandfather's favorite train 💕
Late night flower analysis! 😁 Sampling some GG5 AKA New Glue developed by @ggstrainsofficial and cultivated by @phatpanda The aroma is less skunk-like than the GG4, much sweeter and slightly pungent with lemon and diesel notes and an undertone of menthol. The flavor was lemon, earth and slightly spicy. A very sedative effect that is perfect for late at night or anytime that one desires to relax, have a snack and get some rest. Another great cultivar from the GG Strains team. Purchased at Green Collar North @gcnbudstars in Edmonds WA.
