I am using a symbol glossaries looking like this:

\newglossaryentry{Symb:V}{
    name=\ensuremath{V},
    description={Volume},
    symbol=\si{\milli\metre\cubed},
    sort=lat:V,
    type=Symb
}

Usually I use \gls{Symb:V) to show V. Now I want to show the unit mm^3 instead. How can I do this?

I checked google, but I could not find the correct question to type in.

The answer is straight-forward. But perhaps these links (#1 and #2) could be of interest to you as well.

\documentclass{book}                           
\usepackage{siunitx}
\usepackage[symbols]{glossaries}

\newglossaryentry{Symb:V}{
    name=\ensuremath{V},
    description={Volume},
    symbol=\si{\milli\metre\cubed},
    type=symbols,
}

\makeglossaries
\begin{document}
    First use of \gls{Symb:V}, of \glsdesc{Symb:V} and finally of \glssymbol{Symb:V}.

    \printsymbols
\end{document}

The solution is:

\gls{Symb:Q}            & \glsentrysymbol{Symb:Q} & \glsentrydesc{Symb:Q} \\
