Super Glue Strain Review - Everything You Need to Know & More!

Like the name suggests, Super Glue is strong, sticky and can fix almost anything. Like handling the adhesive glue, the Super Glue strain is not for beginners. If you’re not careful, you’ll have the goo all over the place! Super Glue (also known as Superglue weed) has a reputation of hitting hard like a smack in the face – at first it stings but then it tingles and feels uplifting and refreshing. You’ll immediately feel a rush of endorphins to the brain where the high will stick like glue. This isn’t like a sniffing glue experience where it will rush to your head and knock you out. Tokers will still be able to function, maybe even better so with their head in the clouds and a smile on their face. With upwards of 23% THC content, you may want to take it slow if you don’t want the room to start spinning. For such high THC, anxiety is low, though some users experience a bit of it and inexperienced users might experience too much to handle. This sativa-dominant hybrid is a definite head high but one that encourages focus. This is one of those easy strains to use for the motivation of a deep house cleaning day or cabin-fever puzzling. For experts, this Super Glue OG can spark up insightful conversation about the cosmic universe or enhance your interest for a mild hike or long walk through nature.

Background

Winning third place for best sativa at the NorCal High Times Cannabis Cup in 2015 by Vallejo Patients Care set this new strain on the map to fame. It is unclear who the original inventor of this gluey strain is, but Seedism Seeds surely has a name for their Super Glue bud. By crossing Northern Lights and Afghani, you know straight away that this strain is quality kush. Popular on the west coast of the U.S. but gaining a reputation worldwide, Super Glue is loved for its high yield and desirable high making it a cash crop in warmer climates.
Northern Lights is a well-loved bud in northern Europe (coincidental? I think not) and Afghani is the OG of indica kush creating a prodigal sticky bud. Super Glue was on the rise in 2015 after its claim to fame at the Cannabis Cup, though soon was taken over by her cousin’s popularity, Gorilla Glue. Not as highly praised, she is definitely one to make an acquaintance. Like Gorilla’s little sister, Super Glue has less THC and less of a couch lock – making her more sociable though she is a little more temperamental to grow (check out the growing section below for more details).

Gluey Composition

The indica to sativa ratio is an adequate balance of 60/40 but tends to have a more favorable sativa effect. You’ll feel the initial pang of indica straight to the brain. As the time passes, this indica hit eases away, distributing its relaxing effects all throughout the body like a soft Xanex. As the distribution takes place, the sativa blossoms in your head, alleviating anxiety and focusing your attention on the matter at hand. Super Glue is a great strain for a stroll, tedious task or mind-blowing theories.


Different Types of Glue

You may be more familiar with the popular Gorilla Glue strain (GG4), the original glue strain getting its name because while trimming this bud, the scissors stuck together like glue. Many people often mistake Super Glue and Gorilla Glue as siblings, but they don’t have similar parents. In comparison though they have a similar high but Super Glue is more intense – the superhero version or more like the Super Gorilla Glue strain. Though Super Glue has a distant cousin, Crazy Glue weed, which shares the same grandparent, Super Silver Haze, and can get a little bit confusing to keep straight. Especially when people mistakenly start calling both buds Krazy Glue strains. Though similar in name, they are not the same. Super Glue tingles while Crazy numbs you. While both are great for a creative high, Super Glue tends to stick to your head while Gorilla and Crazy Glue are a tad more mellow.

Super Glue Effects

Super Glue is not typically a night time sleeping aid, though many find it helps alleviate symptoms of insomnia. The dominant effect is relaxation which can be quite enjoyable during the daytime along with its happy and focused attributes. Tread lightly though; this strain might make you feel invincible when in reality you’ll be tripping over your own feet. Try not to do any heavy lifting or handle glass objects (like a bong) as you are likely to drop them. Also, it might be wise to use only your feet as transportation while your brain is stuck in this gluey high.

Like the name implies, get crafty with glue. Tune into your creativity! Though your mouth might dry up, your mind will be full of thoughts and conversations. If you venture into the world, you might catch yourself saying, “Wow, did that just happen?” because you start to notice the strangeness in everything normal. During movie time, be prepared to burst out into laughter, even at the not-so funny parts – yes, the director actually knew you’d be smoking some Super Glue and is messing with you…

Overall, this strain is pretty adaptable: helpful around the house for focused and tedious chores, enjoyable on a stroll in the sun, relaxing for a day of chill and drowsy to help you sleep. This strain is a cheap way to get high, but you’ll get stuck on it like glue for sure. Glue tokers always come back for more, and for good reason. It is one of the best strains to keep around the house for the times you need an any-occasion strain. Going on vacation or heading to a festival – you aren’t sure what to expect, so you take Glue along with you.

Growing Tips

Super Glue can yield more than 20 grams per plant with proper care. She can be a bit harder to manage because she is very susceptible to mold. With such big kolas, add in some humidity or rain and you are going to have a big problem. If you do take on the challenge, make sure to have good airflow and ventilation. Outside, if it rains or there's high humidity, try getting a fan or at least shake the buds so they don’t sit in the wet and cold.
FYI, dedicated growers of the glue strains have to invest in new scissors often because, well, that is how it got its name in the first place – the trimming scissors start to stick together like super glue got on them! The woody, sweet and pungent smell is a classic stimulating aroma – it makes my mouth water just thinking about it. Take a look below at these succulent plants growing outdoors. This grower from Northern California shows us a 10-foot plant and claims he’ll yield 8 pounds of bud using a 300-gallon pot!

Flowering Time: 8-10 weeks

Climate: Warm weather with lots of sun. Mediterranean climate best suits this strain.

Location: Indoor and Outdoor. Anywhere outdoors with enough sunshine during the grow period. Indoor grows well with hydroponics.

Height: Around 4 feet indoors but can reach 6 feet outdoors!

Super Glue Round-Up

When you’re in a pinch and need a quick fix-it tool, my go-to is always super glue, the glue that fixes anything. Super Glue strain is just that – an all-around easy to smoke strain for groovy vibes, whole body relaxation and focus for group settings at an evening setting or crafty projects at home. Super Glue is adaptable for most situations; it won’t knock you out if you are at a festival or at a park picnic, but it will also help you sleep with soothing effects. It’s perfect for daytime outdoor playtime and nighttime low-key chill time. If you’re familiar with Gorilla Glue and feel slightly hesitant to try, don’t be – she is a much gentler glue with less THC and more vibrancy to enhance your energy. As the new saying goes, “if it ain’t broke…” still, you can fix it with some Super Glue.

Quick Overview of Super Glue Effects

  • Relaxation – you will feel all like “ahhhhhhh…”
  • Focus – you’ll think hours went by while you rearranged your closet and it’s only been a few minutes.
  • Any occasion – It’s a round-robin – good for any time.
  • Anxiety and stress relief – bathe in relaxation. You may even experience some drowsiness.
  • Sticks like glue – You can actually feel a sticky brain. Maybe because your mind gets stuck on particular things or you can only handle to focus on one thing at a time!
  • Dry mouth – so stay well hydrated while you have some sticky fun.
