  • sweet like berry/cherry candy
  • has a dusty earthiness
  • getting some greasy plastic when broken open
  • almost smells like a dank forest floor after a nice fall rain
  • has a hint of lemony pine


  • very small peas & popcorn buds
  • probably the dryest weed ever received @ marimoko
  • so SO dry – kept in a jar with a boveda for a week and it didn’t help the bud at all – added two more boveda packets and gave it another week – wound up being OK but still dry AF
  • nice colouring – mostly darker green w/ high contrast somewhat reddish/brown hairs
  • hard to tell on the manicure being that this is peas
  • has some sparkle to it
  • hints of previous stickiness – but that took two weeks & three boveda packets to get
  • peas are more on the fluffy side & not super dense/tight
  • found one seed


  • RAW single wide paper w/ smaller filter tip used
  • busted up pretty evenly
  • minimal stick in the grinder
  • fair amount of crystally trichome dust left behind
  • found a very light coloured seed
  • rolled pretty easily – shocked because of how dry it is but the two weeks with boveda packets brought back some stickiness
  • ash is medium light grey & very soft textured


  • sour/bitter – not horrible bitter but more soft & sweet like a nice craft beer
  • a bit lemony
  • hints of pine
  • some creamy vanilla
  • gets pretty harsh near the end of the doob


  • hit during last 1/2 of the joint
  • can feel it in the chest & head
  • bit of head fogginess

Silverback Gorilla is a very rare indica dominant hybrid strain that is a potent cross between the insanely popular Grape Ape X Super Silver Haze strains. This fast-acting bud offers a THC level ranging from 21-27% on average and a variety of potent indica effects. Users describe the Silverback Gorilla high as one that is hard-hitting and ideal for night use, with extremely potent lazy and sleepy effects accompanied by a sedative dreamy head high. You’ll feel a warming body buzz slowly melt across your body providing intense body relief until you are in a state of complete relaxation and glued to your couch or bed. Due to these potent indica effects, Silverback Gorilla is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic pain due to injury or illness, nerve damage, muscle spasms, and sleep disorders, including insomnia. Silverback Gorilla has an aroma of earthy sawdust with a taste of earthy pine with a coffee-flavored exhale. This strain has dense round dark olive green popcorn-shaped nugs that are extremely leafy with rich purple undertones. These nugs are spattered with long thin amber and fiery orange hairs and a thick layer of cloudy white trichomes and sweet resin.
