Both Silver Haze and Amnesia Haze are strains noted for their high THC content, while Gorilla Glue was actually named for its extraordinary coating of cannabinoid-rich resin glands. White Label White Gorilla Haze inherits its uplifting high from the Haze side of its ancestry and its super-thick frosting of trichomes from all its parents, especially Gorilla Glue. Resin glands completely cover the buds of White Gorilla Haze as well as the single-bladed leaves growing from flower clusters, the stems below those clusters, and even parts of this strain’s fan leaves and branches.
In the hands of experienced natural-light cultivators, White Gorilla Haze feminized cannabis seeds by White Label can be grown in a green house. In a hot, sunny Mediterranean climate, this strain can produce huge yields outdoors, as long as the local climate remains favourable throughout October. Large White Gorilla Haze plants grown in natural light may need to be supported by a trellis or stakes, as their flower production can become too heavy for their relatively slender branches.
Indoors is where White Gorilla Haze feminized cannabis seeds can most easily reach their full potential of yield and resin production. This mostly-Sativa strain has a low growing odour and will usually add 200 or even 300% to its vegetated height as it blooms. This means that seed plants and clones can be put into flower at 30cm or less and still be expected to reach a final height of around 100cm. SOG, ScrOG and lollipopping are all suitable methods for maximising the yield of White Gorilla Haze. The longest-flowering phenotypes can also perform well indoors at larger sizes, as their high flower-to-foliage ratio means that grow-lights can illuminate the whole plant without much shading from the plants’ own leaves.
The flowering pattern of White Gorilla Haze is a joy to behold, as it expresses both its Indica and Sativa genetics. Resin production begins early, while calyxes are still appearing in pairs at each node, then greatly accelerates as the buds begin to expand along the branches and main stem. The fastest flowering phenotypes of White Gorilla Haze have the most solid flower clusters and the least internodal expansion. The buds of medium- and long-flowering plants usually ‘run’ along stem and branches as their calyxes swell in size, closing gaps and creating huge colas.
All phenotypes of White Gorilla Haze display this strain’s outstanding resin production. Harvested buds remain sticky to the touch even when completely dried and cured. Like its Gorilla Glue parent, breaking up the flower clusters of White Gorilla Haze by hand can leave fingers almost glued together by resin and may even gum up scissors and grinders. The flavour profile of this strain, which remains subtle throughout cultivation and drying, is released when buds are broken up – a sharp Haze undercurrent with notes of coffee, pine and citrus.
Naturally, the all-over covering of THC-rich trichomes means that the buds of White Gorilla Haze are extremely potent. When first encountering this strain, even advanced smokers are advised to test a smaller sample than they would normally consume. This hybrid has a huge, sky-high Sativa effect ranging from dreamy and creative to almost psychedelic. While it has enough Indica to keep the user grounded, this is an energetic smoke that is more suited to (careful) daytime use than as a night-cap. When accustomed to its potency, White Gorilla Haze by White Label is an ideal choice for vaporizing, as gentle heating will make the most of its copious resin glands, creating a surprising amount of vapour from the smallest buds and even from its manicured leaves.
