Similar to Elmer’s Glue, GG4 gives you a heavy-hitting head high followed immediately by full-body relaxation making it hard for you to move.
The White or Triangle is also a hybrid cannabis strain that traces its origins from Florida. It was so named for the plentiful white trichome crystals surrounding its buds providing an experience that whisks away to a winter wonderland. It is an odorless strain that is often overlooked by cannabis users for more fragrant strains. But what the White lacks in odor, it more than makes up for with its positive effects.

The flowers of Elmer’s glue are relatively small compared to most cannabis flowers and are often seen clumped together as small clusters. These are surrounded by small curled leaves laden with fingery tendrils known as pistils which are believed to play a role in the pollination process between plants.
