I’ve spoken here at length about my insomnia and the various cannabis based approaches I’ve tried to treat it. I’ve used just about every form factor out there, and for me, there’s nothing like an old school bowl of flower with some heavy hitting genetics. That search is what led me to 4Front’s Gorilla Lemon Fire by Funky Monkey on the menu at Mission South Chicago.
Gorilla Lemon Fire is an indica-leaning hybrid cross of (Gorilla Glue #4 and Zkittlez) and Lemon Pie. This batch of flower tested at 20.93% THCa, 0.52% CBGa, and 22.15% total cannabinoids. The most prevalent terpenes were β-myrcene, trans-caryophyllene, limonene, linalool, and α-humulene.
This eighth came as three smaller popcorn sized nugs alongside a larger thumb sized cola tip. The flowers were bright green with a generous amount of bright orange hairs. One of the smaller buds exhibited some pleasant darker purple hues. Overall, there was a light milky trichome frost and a few unnecessary sugar leaves that could have used some extra trimming.
The scent from the jar was light and fruit forward with strawberry and blueberry on the front. I also found light notes of cherry blossom and a grassy hay at the finish. While the overall aroma was very light, it was notably candy sweet.
The lightness of the aroma carried over into the flavor profile where I only found hints of the sweet berry notes and instead found floral tones reminiscent of honeysuckle and magnolia among more lingering grass notes on the finish.
The effect profile from Gorilla Lemon Fire harkened back to it’s Gorilla Glue ancestry, hitting me with a one-two punch of heavy stoning body buzz and a mental waywardness that made me giggly and playful. This flower also kicked in a powerful wave of the munchies sending me to the fridge every time I sampled it.
The physical relaxation worked well for my pain relief needs and I could easily fit this in as an insomnia-killing nightcap. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, visit here.
