‘Tis the season for winter festivals that take your mind off the cold! Whether you’re celebrating the 13th Annual Boulder International Film Festival or Frozen Dead Guy Days, just add a primate and a little fruit and you’ve got yourself a party.  Confused?  Don’t be; I’m talking about Gorilla Mango, an impressive strain known for its hybrid balance which makes it an all-day favorite.  Get ready for a residual ride of gleeful gratification and profound bliss with Gorilla Mango and here’s why:

Primal Instinct: It won’t leave you beating your chest for attention, but it will create an elated spirit of joy and animation.  The strain enlists the likes of Gorilla Glue #4 and Strawberry Mango Haze.  Unlike most Gorilla Glue strains, the #4 emits a relaxed confidence, great for random festival conversations.   The #4 almost didn’t survive…its origin began when a grower tossed the strain from his grow, only to be rescued by a fellow grower who resurrected the strain a few years later and decided it was worth keeping.  Like the instinct and perseverance of the plant, you will find yourself invigorated, cool and in charge.

Nature’s Bounty: Ask and you shall receive; mother nature has provided a sweet treat with no calories!  The mango side of this strain is a sativa concoction of Strawberry Mango Haze, a sweet fruity amalgamation that compliments the earthy sour of Gorilla Glue #4 leaving your senses somewhere in a strawberry field forever.   If you can stop smelling it long enough to take a closer look,  the buds are colorful and reminiscent of ripe mangos ready for picking.

Universal Good Vibe:  There is a conspiracy for fun built into this strain.  The clarity and zest is conducive to a day of clever comebacks, happenstance conversations, and mirthful meetings.  But fair warning, pace yourself with this one, too much of a good thing will leave you learning a lesson on over indulgence.

Before you head out to the festivals around town, stop by Boulder Wellness, a grower-owned cannabis dispensary and ask for the top shelf Gorilla Mango.  With an impressive 23.79% THCA and the unusual interaction of flavors, you’ll be in a festival mood long past the weekend.

As always, consume responsibility.

Peace, Love, and Wintertime Festivals!
