About Grease Monkey
History & Genetics
Grease Monkey is an indica-dominant hybrid from Exotic Genetix, the breeders who have given us standout strains like Kimbo Kush and Starfighter. Grease Monkey is a cross between the couch-locking indica Gorilla Glue and Exotic’s own hybrid Cookies and Cream. It imparts a thick and lazy body 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. Grease Monkey’s potency has been measured at between 25% and 30% THC.
Better suited to a lazy day than a productive one, Grease Monkey is valued for its hazy and mellow properties. It’s great as a sweet treat to enjoy with either your morning coffee or your evening dessert.
Appearance, Aroma & Flavor
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.
Flowers of Grease Monkey give off an odor that is simultaneously sweet and skunky. The influence of Chemdawg and Sour Diesel -- by way of parent strain Gorilla Glue -- are clear in the astringent, fuel-like top notes. On closer inspection, a more complex sweetness becomes evident.
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. Grease Monkey gives off a smooth smoke when combusted; it tastes distinctly like vanilla with the clashing flavor of gasoline. Smokers looking to keep their consumption discreet should beware, as this can be a particularly pungent flower.
Grease Monkey eases users into its high, starting with a faint pressure in the face, particularly around the eyes and temples. Within minutes, it radiates a warmth that spreads through the core and limbs, pulverizing lingering muscular tension. As they feel relaxed, smokers may also notice that their powers of perception are also sharpened. External stimuli like sights or sounds may take on new dynamics. Furthermore, a cerebral mindset may take over, making users jump from one thought to the next. These trippy, thoughtful effects can lend themselves to free-flowing conversation or simply daydreaming.
As the high wears on, Grease Monkey’s indica side takes over, pinning users in place and leading them to engage in more passive activities like watching TV or eating -- in fact, Grease Monkey has especially been known to stoke hunger. Although higher doses of the strain can pull users into a deep sleep, in average amounts, it is a good choice for morning or daytime use, providing a good balance of mental and physical effects.
Just as it has many recreational uses, Grease Monkey also has a variety of applications for medical cannabis patients. It can be a balm for the 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, anti-inflammatory effects can prove to be an effective treatment for everyday discomforts like nausea.
Exotic Genetix has made seeds of Grease Monkey available online for those who wish to grow it themselves. It can be successfully cultivated indoors or out, although outdoor growing environments should maintain constant humidity and daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Plants can grow tall, but can be kept at a manageable height if growers trim and prune branches early on in the vegetative stage. Grease Monkey flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and offers a high yield of flowers. This can also be a very stinky grow and those looking to keep their operations under wraps should invest in odor control measures like exhaust fans.
Awesome strain!! I work in a dispensary and have had it on the shelf for a few weeks now. The terpenes transform into a pecan pie scent and it is amazing!! I am currently smoking Grease Monkey and it tastes like pecan pie!!!
Awesome strain had a grate time growing it, super hardy plant did really well though the Smokey fire season. This strain delivered weight, smell and I was told it tasted awesome. I was able to see the out come of this strain grown in light dep and out door and personally I like it way better in out door, I will for sure be growing this strain again.
Jus picked up a lih 8th of Mr. Nasty grown by KYND. This batch is comin’ in HOT at 30.27% THC ! I thought i was going to be disappointed as i cracked the jar to see thin,airy,stemmy nugs..but nope ! My scent detector was instantly smacked with delicious scents of vanilla with swirls of some type of earthy fuel or pine cleaner. Sound weird but they go together like peanut butter and jelly ! The visual i got of this batch of Mr. Nasty looks almost like it has a pink hue to it. The almost 2 gram nug is obviously a cola tip and let me tell you, it looks phenomenal. Thick, dense, triangle shaped buds are frosted with shiny fractal like trichomes that makes the bud almost annoying to try and break down with your fingers. Ive taken a tiny rip so far, just to get a taste and see where it takes my head. And if youve read this entire lil review..you see that 1 rip already has me DRAXXED and ima HEAVY DAILY marijuana user. So if you just barely started partaking in the inhalation of herbs of potency and you picked up some of this here MISTA NASTY…get ready for lift-off.
One of my top 5. If you can’t sleep this strain the best for it…👍🌳🦠
If grown correctly .. the effects of this strain are unbelievably amazing.
