Gorilla Glue adhesives company reaches settlement with cannabis business
The dispute stemmed from Nevada cannabis company GG Strains' branding for some of its plant varietals
An adhesives firm and a cannabis business have agreed to patch up their differences and send the “gorilla” packing from dispensaries.
The Gorilla Glue Co. and GG Strains LLC reached a settlement in the trademark infringement case the Ohio-based glue maker brought against the Las Vegas-based developer of marijuana strains, court records show.
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.
GG Strains also will eventually have to shut down its gorillaglue4.com website and transfer that domain name to Gorilla Glue Co. by Jan. 1, 2020, according to the Sept. 21 court order.
