Space Gorilla is a high quality bud.  It is plump and springy, dark green with orange hues and very nice trichomes. The odors out of its packaging are earthy, nutty, with elements of sesame and herbal tones—a fine essence but not necessarily eye opening. The odors are replicated in the in its flavors, however they come through stronger on the tongue and are tastier than they are aromatic. The smoke is incredibly thick and rich, creamy, very pleasant and enjoyable.

But Space Gorilla’s high outshines its other characteristics. Two thirds through the joint I realized I was going to be stoned—and this made me very happy. Indeed, “happy” is one word I would use to describe this bud from first spark until I lay down to sleep hours later. The bud comes on strong with its full effects. From my notes, “I know will be stoned! I feel pretty groovy—feel like I’m about to go on an amazing trip.” Apologies for the word groovy—but there is something trippy, happy, chill, exciting, relaxing, and engaging about this bud. The bud gets deep into the body, but it doesn’t stop the mind and it doesn’t sedate.  Instead, it heightens and titillates the senses, creates an incredible satisfied and content feeling, and lets the consumer let go of everything. The last line of my notes states, “good, clean, full bodies high.”

I highly recommend Space Gorilla to all consumers. The bud is strong and novice consumers should engage in moderation. But it is never overwhelming or negative—in fact it is incredibly positive with a soaring euphoric high and an incredible destressing effect. For those consumers focused on maximizing high, not necessarily maximizing the strength but rather maximizing overall therapeutic effects, it would be harder to come across a better bud.
