King Gelato | Feminized Seeds


If you can only buy one new cannabis seed, make it King Gelato! Super potent doesn’t even begin to describe these bad-ass beans. The extra-thick layer of resin makes these ladies perfect for concentrates, but at 26+% THC, the dried flowers are more than enough to blow even the most tolerant away. Plus, one pheno goes a deep royal purple. What else would you expect from the King?!





Pink Sherbert | Feminized Seeds


A fantastic example of a GSC cross, Pink Sherbert weed seeds will leave you a satisfying harvest of sparkling, sugar-coated buds with super high THC levels. The long-lasting and medical-grade high is popular with medical users and should be treated with respect. Her tasty aroma will send you into another dimension whilst gently massaging your pain away. You’ll be able to get your stuff done, though.




Afghan Cow | Dr Krippling


Don’t have a cow, man! Better yet, have 850 gr/m2 of Afghan Cow, Dr Krippling’s best cerebral mind bender. Perfect for meditation & contemplation, this impressive Sativa-dominant feminized seed is truly exquisite with mass quantities of eye-catching buds bursting with power thanks to their 22% THC rating. The name might be weird, but the buzz is first rate!



How Do I Get My Sh*t?


If you’re salivating from the sound of these beauties, it’s time to get shopping. Here’s what you do:


  1. Add at least £24.99’s worth of goodies to your basket, then click the ‘Shopping Bag’ at the top of the screen.

Barney’s Farm Blue Gelato 41 – 5 Pack, Feminized Seeds

Blue Gelato 41 is one of Barney’s Farm’s newest creations and it’s a goodie! This is a Blueberry X Thin Mint GSC X Sunset Sherbert cross that’s capable of yielding up to 3000 gr/seed outdoors. That’s crazy, right! Barney’s hasn’t released an actual figure for THC yet, but this one’s reported to be plenty potent.


Barney’s Farm Peyote Critical – 5 Pack, Feminized Seeds

This Barney’s strain has been out for just a little while. It’s a new take on their high-yielding Critical Kush, but with a more intense flavours, aromas & colours. There’s just a touch of mental lift in Peyote Critical, but the Kush will definitely keep you grounded when you enjoy this 80% Indica.



The Feminised Seeds Company – King Gelato – 5 Pack

These cannabis seeds have been topping our sales charts for the past few months – when we can keep them in stock. It’s similar to Blue Gelato 41 with a few differences. Instead of Blueberry, King Gelato includes a very potent King Indica strain that boosts both yield and potency. THC has been tested as high as 26%. Fancy a side-by-side comparison?!


The Feminised Seeds Company – Pink Sherbert – 5 Pack

Pink Sherbert is another GSC X Sherbert cross, but without anything else to complicate the mash-up. Some phenos will turn pink & purplish if allowed to fade, but many will stay a deep green. Regardless of colour, the flavours are an intense mix of sweet, minty and nutty with a heavy, hashy aroma. Highs are strong but functional.

Home Office Finally Return’s Billy Caldwell’s Cannabis Oil


Young Billy Caldwell and His Mother Charlotte


You may remember Billy Caldwell. After the cannabis oils he tried in the US made a miraculous difference in the number of seizures he suffered every day, he became the first person in the UK to be approved for treatment with medical marijuana.


That was in 2017. Just last month, in May of 2018, the NHS told Billy’s doctor he could no longer prescribe cannabis oils for Billy’s treatment.


Billy’s mother didn’t let that stop her. She traveled to Canada to buy a 6-month supply of what she views as life-saving medicine. In her own words:


“I take the view that I’d rather have my son illegally alive than legally dead.”

On her return trip, she declared the medication to customs at Heathrow Airport after which it was confiscated. Billy was hospitalized soon afterward.




Billy’s mother appealed to the Home Office to release the cannabis oils so her son could resume treatment in what was argued to be a real life-and-death situation. Billy had been taking the oils for 19-months straight. A sudden, cold-turkey stop could do more than allow his seizures to increase to their former level – it could kill him.


Home Office Nick Hurd listened to all the arguments in favour of continuing treatment and still said no. This is what his spokeswoman had to say:


The Home Office is “sympathetic to the rare situation that Billy and his family are faced with. The policing minister met Ms Caldwell and advised her that despite these extremely difficult circumstances, it is unlawful to possess Schedule 1 drugs such as those seized at the border this morning without a licence. The minister urged the family to explore licensing options with the Department of Health Northern Ireland.”



Home Office Secretary Javid relented five days later and had the cannabis oils sent to the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital where Billy Caldwell had been admitted. They made it clear that the treatment was under an exceptional license for a “short-term emergency” and would need to be reviewed.


The current conditions are:

  • The special license is only good for 20 days.
  • Billy must take the oils at the hospital, not at home.

It would seem that the Home Office has a heart after all … kind of.




Charlotte Caldwell, Billy’s mother, said it all:


“No other family should have to go through this sort of ordeal, travelling half way round the world to get medication which should be freely available. “My experience leaves me in no doubt that the Home Office can no longer play a role in the administration of medication for sick children in our country. Children are dying in our country and it needs to stop now.”

At Gorilla Seeds, we agree whole-heartedly. While we maintain strict compliance with current laws and only sell collectible items including high-CBD cannabis seeds, we do advocate for sensible change and the end of government overreach. You may even see legal CBD oils and other products on our site soon. Check back often!


Two Paris Coffee Shops Now Sell Legal Cannabis – Are You Game?


From E-Klop’s Facebook Page – Is that weed???


Parisians are lining up at E-Klop and Cofyshop to try legal weed products. But, before you get too excited, this isn’t really cannabis by our standards. The dried herbs, oils, sweets, vape-liquid and other legal products can’t contain more than .2% THC (that’s 2/10 of a percent, not 2 percent). Instead, they’re high in CBD derrived from hemp.



Will it get you high? Probably not, unless you’re the lightest of the lightweights. But, it might make you feel a bit relaxed and you might … we repeat … might get some of the medical benefits that researchers have attributed to CBD. The laws are clear though – neither the makers or the sellers of these products can make any medical claims or recommendations.




Per gram, dried herb costs about €20-25 per gram at E-Klop and only €10-12 per gram at Cofyshop. Oils, sweets & e-liquids that need more work to process are priced accordingly.


Cofyshop’s owner Joaquim Lousquy had this to say:

“There’s no psychotropic effect. It is not a medicine or a relaxant. We are not doctors. I would not advise anyone to smoke cannabis. Here, we sell it like a common product, in the same way as a furniture shop might sell a table or a chair.”

Marc, a 21-year-old waiting to buy a newly legal cannabis product said:

“I want to find out if the stuff they’re selling gets you stoned. In theory, it has less than 0.2 percent THC, but I’ve heard it contains more CBD [cannabidiol, a legal cannabinoid] and that should have an effect, at least to make you feel relaxed.”

Dan Valea, a psychologist who specializes in addiction only had negative things to say about this new development:

“There are not enough studies [on this]…there is a risk that users [of CBD] may return to using cannabis containing THC, and that CBD will act as a ‘gateway’ product for new users.”

And finally, Marlene, a 72-year-old resident who lives above one of the coffeeshops, was not happy at all. She commented:

“It smells of hashish in the street and it wafts up into our flat.”



Amsterdam’s where Big G likes to play, but he says if you’re in Paris and you’re curious, why not? If you’d simply like to stay home & chill, he’s got plenty of low-THC, high-CBD products of his own like CBD Python as well as more traditional powerhouses like old-school Chronic and new sensation King Gelato with 26+% THC. Now, that’s something you won’t find in any French coffee shop!



Local Dutch Councils Want to Supply Weed to Citizens

Proposals are afoot to allow Dutch councils to produce and supply cannabis in order to eradicate the black market that has grown around the current tolerated but not regulated Dutch weed model.

This has resulted in around 30 different Dutch cannabis companies striving to work with the government in the proposed trials in Breda and other parts of the Netherlands.

According to local authorities: “In the front door, it is working well. Back door, all sorts of problems because it is encouraging criminality and the small production in fields in houses and there are fires because of electricity problems.”

An Amsterdam Coffee Shop Menu

The groundbreaking, but simple idea that a legal cannabis market can exist has now been proven in the US, and the recent vote to allow recreational cannabis in California is one of many large milestones that have been passed over the last few years. Sanity is prevailing, slowly but surely.

Waste of Police Time

For Dutch police, dismantling 16 cannabis farms a day (5,856 a year) has surely got to get extremely tiresome at some point. And very, very expensive.

UK police gathering up cannabis plants

Trials will take place in 2018 and the various councils involved will report their harvests and production figures back to government.

New Models Proposed

Different ways of supplying the consumer are also under discussion, including ordering online from licensed vendors. Other options on the table are mass production by companies or medical institutions who could potentially sell directly to the coffee shops.

There is also a cannabis social club model being proposed and another proposition is to allow the coffeeshops themselves to grow their own product.

Depla, the major of Breda is quoted as saying:

“A lot of companies have tried to contact and have said they are capable of producing the cannabis to be sold in the coffee shop. I have had offers from 25, 30, companies telling me that they are capable to produce on a legal and safe basis the cannabis.

Some involved in agriculture or linked with big companies with a lot of spare heat. Producing cannabis costs you a lot in electricity.”

In the trials the companies involved will provide 15 different types of cannabis for sale.
