Gorilla Glue Adhesives Company Reaches Settlement With Cannabis Business

An adhesives firm and a cannabis business have agreed to patch up their differences and send the “gorilla” packing from dispensaries.

Under the settlement agreement, GG Strains and its licensees of the company’s numbered strains initially named Gorilla Glue #4 (additionally #1 and #5) will have to transition away from that name, any gorilla imagery and similarities to Gorilla Glue Co. trademarks by Sept. 19, 2018, according to documents filed in federal court for Ohio’s southern district.
