High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake 3.5g

written by Samuel Popejoy, video by Blair Borland

Cresco is a mega-giant on the international cannabis stage. Funder of research and mass-producer of both common and rare cannabinoids, Illinois-founded Cresco has come home to roost by utterly dominating the fledgling Chicago cannabis market.

High Supply is Cresco’s flower brand, and this Indica Shake is believed to have its origins in Gorilla Glue #4. Along the way, however, any flower that might have been has been crumbled into broken-down shake, resulting in a homogenized indica mishmash that at least smells like weed.

We’ll keep things in perspective here. The Illinois recreational cannabis market is only in its second year, and we’re lucky to even have flower on the shelves in Chicago.

Still, High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake 3.5g remains a concerning example of bottom-tier flower occupying a top-shelf price bracket. Things will stabilize over the next few years, but for now, this is what Windy City residents are stuck with if they don’t want to blow their entire paychecks on dispensary runs.

Product Gallery

All things considered, I give the High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake 3.5g an overall score of 3.2 out of 5. Other product types are priced more reasonably within the Illinois cannabis market, but flower and concentrates are ridiculously overpriced.

For this 1/8oz container of the lowest-of-the-low-tier “flower,” Chicago Best Dosage Correspondent Blair Borland was set back $60. In the end, High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake got the job done, but it wasn’t a particularly pleasant experience. The top highlight of this product is that, no matter how bad it is, weed you smoke generally kicks in quick.

  • Pre-order pickup from GreenHouse in Skokie, IL
  • Helpful budtenders gave Blair 15% off as a new customer
  • Simple packaging made with recycled paper
  • Earthy, sour aroma and taste
  • Immediate indica effects are best experienced before bed
  • Relaxing, blissful, creative effects
  • Both body and head high
  • Overall look and feel of shake is not impressive
  • Sky-high $60 price is straight out of the upside-down-world that is the Illinois cannabis market

Convenience 

There’s nothing particularly convenient about shake. You have to roll it up or put it in a pipe or bong, and it has a tendency to get everywhere while still being sticky enough to adhere to surfaces.

All the same, it’s undeniably convenient to skip grinding. If you’re the type of person who likes as few obstacles between you and your cannabinoids as possible, High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake 3.5g eliminates an extra step.

  • Shake is messy and not particularly convenient
  • Pre-ground buds are, however, a plus for efficiency

Flavor Profile 

Blair wasn’t a fan of High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake’s flavor. Based on the chatter on Reddit, other Illinois cannabis users aren’t thrilled either.

It basically tastes like what it is — low-tier weed ground up and stored in that state. Cannabis novices might not be in the know, but grinding cannabis before storing it a first-class recipe for drying out your herb and killing its terpenes, which are easily oxidized.

Users online report that High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake 3.5g has an intensely harsh texture and a taste that’s just about as bad as that bag of weed you bought under the bleachers in high school that you’re still not sure wasn’t parsley.

  • Low-quality buds, low-quality flavor
  • Texture is harsh, flavor is unpleasant

Activation Time

Once cannabinoids enter your lungs, it’s pretty much a guarantee that you’ll start feeling their effects within 1-2 minutes. Very few factors can stop or even hinder this reality from coming about. The mere fact that High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake 3.5g isn’t exactly top-shelf didn’t do anything to impact its activation time in Blair’s opinion.

  • Fast activation time
  • Blair felt effects almost instantly

Effects & Duration

Blair smoked High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake 3.5g to get to sleep, and she tells us that her Cresco shake fulfilled its role perfectly in that regard. The effects of her buds lasted until she went to bed, and she found them to be pleasant.

I docked a couple of points for the cannabinoid concentration and product presentation of High Supply’s Gorilla Glue Indica Shake. At around 15% total cannabinoids, you’ll have to smoke more Gorilla Glue Shake to experience the same high you’d enjoy with more potent strains, and shake naturally contains lower concentrations of terpenes, which might boost the effects of cannabinoids in various ways.

  • Adequate indica effects
  • Low-potency shake
  • Decimated terpene profile

Price 

In an ideal world, a 3.5g can of shake of this caliber would fetch a price somewhere around $15-$30. In Blair’s world, a 3.5g can of High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake cost $60, exactly twice what I’d set as the reasonable upper pricing limit for this product.

Just as we’ve seen in Washington, California, and other states that have legalized recreational cannabis, overzealous tax rates and regulatory confusion have made the first two years of Illinois’ legalized cannabis program a living hell. As recreational markets mature, they generally stabilize, but charging $60 for a can of bottom-shelf shake is egregious in any situation.

  • Absurdly overpriced
  • Low-tier product offered at top-shelf prices

About the Product

High Supply is yet another finger of the Cresco legalized cannabis empire in Illinois. Designed to be an affordable, entry-level flower line for casual cannabis users, High Supply has, due to the harsh constraints of reality, simply established itself as one of the only moderately affordable flower brands in the Illinois recreational market.

Coming from Cresco, High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake is guaranteed to attain a certain level of quality. All the same, High Supply shake is Cresco’s lowest-tier flower option, and highly capitalized international cannabis player Cresco is a little bit tight-lipped about the processes used to make its Illinois products.

Target Audience

Cresco originally targeted the High Supply line at casual cannabis users seeking an affordable way to roll up a joint or fill a pipe bowl. Due to the realities of the Illinois cannabis market, however, even Chicago connoisseurs are forced to deal with low-tier buds.

If you don’t want to pay an arm and a leg to purchase affordable cannabis flower in Chicago, High Supply is one of your only options.

Best Dosage

With most cannabis flower, it’s appropriate to take 3-5 hits every 2-3 hours. With High Supply Gorilla Glue Indica Shake, on the other hand, it’s best to smoke as much as you can manage to get down before bed and go to sleep before you think too much about the flavor.

1. Is High Supply shake good?

In a word, no. Only in the dramatically overpriced Illinois cannabis market could a market for shake be this lively. High Supply is a step above other Illinois shake options, but puffing on this pre-ground popcorn bud and trim won’t be anything like puffing on top-shelf Cali chronic.

3. How much THC does High Supply shake contain?

High Supply shake is usually relatively high-potency even if it’s low-quality. An average jar of shake contains around 15% THC.
