The Scoop: Frosty, potent, and loaded with trichomes, Super Glue is a heady hybrid cross between the ever-popular Afghani and old-school favorite Northern Lights. Like a warm day on the beach in late fall, this Indica-dominant hybrid relaxes the conscious mind and soothes the restless soul.
The Result: Palatable and appealing, the woodsy earth tones hint at the flavor to come. In a well-cleaned bong, the first hit of Super Glue smacks of her woodsy earth tones and quickly delivers her cannabinoid-rich relief. Lifting the crushing weight of anxiety and dispensing with physical discomfort and stress, Super Glue is a rare find at your average dispensary.
The Verdict: Buy it if you can find it! She’s loaded with flavor and medicinal compounds just waiting to be unleashed. As the scent of Super Glue’s lemon and skunk terps suggests, the wide spectrum of terpenes available in Super Glue helps to provide its overall calming, blissful, and uplifting effects.

The Science: Super Glue is one of those rare birds. High in both THC and CBD (relatively speaking), she’s occasionally found in West Coast dispensaries. Super Glue, when properly cultivated and cared for, produces a thick white coat of THC-encrusted trichomes around her dense flowers. Tipping some THC test levels in the low-20% range, the strain works wonders for those suffering from seizures, muscle spasms, pain, and the occasional stressful day.
Appearance: A well-cured Super Glue is absolutely beautiful to behold, as any fully mature, righteously cultivated flower should be. The batch of Super Glue I received for reviewing came from Palm Springs Safe Access and had fully mature trichomes with swollen amber heads. With her tight dense nugs wrapped in orange and elongated pistils, this Super Glue was super attractive.
Consistency: Also in the “Super” category – her consistency. This plant’s flowers are nothing short of a scissor wrecking, grinder clogging nightmare. With precious few options left, Super Glue works best after being carefully broken up into small enough nugs to be enjoyed in your favorite bong. However you accomplish the difficult shredding task, the sticky choice is ultimately up to you.
Scent: Lemonish, earthy, petrol, and powerful; a schizophrenic wave of aroma hits the nose when these buds are broken out and shared. Be prepared. Seal the doors with wet towels, put shower caps over the smoke alarms, and tell all concerned to hang on tight. Stoney, stinky, and sure to notify anyone within a two-block radius that you got the chronic because Super Glue reeks to high heaven.
Taste: Strong OG traits; hints of citrus with a skunk-ish kick
Effect: Relaxing, blissful, content, enlightening, and thought-provoking
Strain Background: The available terpenes found in Super Glue run the spectrum of her parental lineage. Deep in the sweet-earth / spicy category on her Afghani side, and a mixture of piney earthiness from her Northern Lights side, Super Glue is a West Coast phenom that’s hard to find east of the Rockies.
Medical Uses: While providing its joyful, calm, and euphoric effects, Super Glue works wonders at alleviating sleepless nights, anxiety, muscle discomfort, melancholy, and the occasional bout of nausea.
