Grease Monkey Strain Overview
Grease Monkey is an Indica-dominant hybrid and is a cross between the couch-locking Indica Gorilla Glue and Exotic’s own hybrid Cookies and Cream. It is ultra-high in THC averaging from 16% to 30% level. Because of that, this strain is pungent and can act as a strong tranquilizer. This THC-heavy strain is a new kid on the block, and now, we want to share why add this to your next shopping list.
What is a Grease Monkey Strain?
This hybrid Indica-dominant strain offers the most seasoned cannabis consumers a whole new sensory experience. It imparts a thick and lazy body of stone while providing some subtle mental stimulation. Grease Monkey also carries the sweet and musky flavor profile that will be familiar to fans of strains in the Girl Scout Cookies family.
Flowers of Grease Monkey give off an odor that is simultaneously sweet and skunk. The influence of Chemdawg and Sour Diesel — through parent strain Gorilla Glue — is clear in the astringent, fuel-like top notes. On closer inspection, a more complex sweetness becomes clear. Consumers may pick up on some creamy vanilla aromas, alongside a yeasty, bread-like base. Grinding up or breaking open the flowers yields a bit of spice and pepper, evidence of OG Kush in parent strain Girl Scout Cookies’ background.
The flavor of this strain is equally pungent as the smell of it. Moving away slightly from the sugary taste, this bud comes to life in notes of fresh vanilla and dank gasoline.
Furthermore, the smoke of Grease Monkey hits super smooth and isn’t overly harsh on the throat, making for an enjoyable hit of flavors without the risk of having a coughing fit. On the exhale, notes of spice and pepper will come out, helping to balance out those sweeter notes for a balanced, pleasurable smoke.
Grease Monkey’s buds have a characteristically Indica appearance, with dense and solid buds of medium size. The flowers adhere in elongated, conical shapes. The leaves themselves appear pale green and are shot through with hairy, dark orange pistils.
Perhaps most impressively, sticky white trichomes cling like frost to the inner and outer surfaces of the buds, accounting for this strain’s trippy effects and making it very difficult to break apart without the help of a grinder.
Effects of the Strain
Similar to many cerebral buds, there is a risk of mind racing thoughts that can cause panic in those prone to anxiety and paranoid thoughts. Thus, consumers should only take a small amount, to begin with, and top up as necessary to avoid unwanted effects.
Medical Benefits of Grease Monkey Strain
This strain has a variety of treatments for medical cannabis patients. It can help symptoms of mild-to-moderate stress and depression, taking the edge off of patients’ frazzled day-to-day lives. Its sedative properties can also soothe aches and pains of all kinds, whether temporary or chronic.
Meanwhile, its anti-inflammatory effects can be an effective treatment for everyday discomforts like nausea. In high enough doses, Grease Monkey can prevent insomnia, lulling smokers into a deep and restful sleep.
