Grease Monkey is a relatively new strain of marijuana, but it’s already a favorite among serious cannabis enthusiasts. This indica-dominant hybrid was created by combining Cookies & Cream with Gorilla Glue #4, so it’s unsurprising that it packs a serious punch. Growers looking forward to the 2022 season can find out what they need to know about Grease Monkey Strain before buying seeds below.
Grease Monkey Is Seriously Strong
The grease monkey strain is not for marijuana initiates or the faint of heart. With THC concentrations often reaching well into the low 30% range and low concentrations of CBD, Grease Monkey combines all the best parts of both its parents. It’s a great fit for anyone who wants to relax after a long day at work without falling asleep right after getting home.
Grease Monkey is less likely to induce couch-lock than Gorilla Glue #4, inducing more of a feeling of relaxation and hazy calm than sedation. Like Cookies & Cream, it also brings on a strong sense of euphoria and can be a good fit for combatting stress, pain, and/or insomnia depending on the quantity being smoked that you will not get up from your kivik sofa.
Grease Monkey Boasts an Intense and Complex Flavor
Some people define this strain’s flavor as containing notes of fresh vanilla mixed with a hint of gasoline, but don’t take that the wrong way. Grease Monkey makes for a smooth smoking experience that doesn’t create unwanted harshness in the back of the throat. There’s no need to worry about coughing fits, but expect a slightly peppery aftertaste to counterbalance the sweetness.
It’s worth noting that Grease Monkey is not a good strain for those who don’t enjoy the smell of sweet, earthy marijuana. It produces a voluminous, unique aroma that reminds some of a combination of grapes and pungent fuel. There are few people who don’t have a strong opinion regarding the aroma of this strain, and even those who love it don’t tend to smoke Grease Monkey in places where discretion is of the essence.
Grease Monkey Is Best Grown Indoors
This indica-heavy hybrid grows strong and tall, but it’s still best cultivated indoors in your waypoint cabinets. Grease Monkey needs consistent temperatures and humidity levels to perform at its best, so outdoor growers won’t be able to take full advantage of this strain’s potential. Indoor growers, on the other hand, will love it.
The only problem with growing Grease Monkey indoors is that it is a pungent strain not just when the final product is being smoked but also during the flowering stage. The smell certainly isn’t unpleasant, but it can be very hard to hide without air purifiers. Flowering starts at eight or nine weeks, and when everything goes right, this strain grows huge, dense forest green buds with hints of purple and frosted, hairy trichomes.
What to Look for in Grease Monkey Seeds
Like most strains, Grease Monkey is available in regular and feminized varieties. Since most people grow it indoors where space is tight and 100% of the plants’ resources must be provided externally, most growers choose feminized seeds, which you can find at Zamnesia. That way, there’s no chance of accidental pollination or wasting resources on male plants that must be pulled during the pre-flowering stage.
