Strain Spotlight: Grease Monkey


This powerful hybrid receives a perfect score from almost everyone who rates it, and it’s high time to see what the buzz is about. Exotic Genetix released this indica-leaning hybrid strain to usher in deep feelings of relaxation that can put the rest of the world on hold for a while. Some customers like to use that quality as a secret weapon against insomnia, while others prefer to get things done after they’ve been eased into focus. The mix of indica and sativa qualities gives this bud a lot to offer, so read on and see if it’s right for you.

GG4 + Cookies and Cream = Grease Monkey

GG4 brings a lot to the table and crossing that with Cookies and Cream rounds it out for an even better experience. GG4 is a popular Gorilla Glue variation that has been known to help consumers form deep bonds with their favorite couch. Exotic Genetix mixed it with one of their very own hybrids, Cookies, and Cream, to balance out the experience. Grease Monkey is the result of all that brilliant work, and it’s everything we hoped it could be.

Original Gorilla Glue (GG4) won multiple awards, receiving first place for both the Michigan and Los Angeles 2014 Cannabis Cups as well as the High Times Jamaican World Cup. Cookies and Cream pulled its weight, too– it earned the first place prize for the hybrid category of the 2014 Denver Cannabis Cup. We wouldn’t be at all surprised to see similar accolades heaped upon Grease Monkey. It gets some of the best traits from each of its parents, making for a tasty smoke and powerful experience.

Grease Monkey Benefits

Customers who love Grease Monkey say it helps them address stress, depression, pain, and insomnia. This reported ability to ease both literal and figurative headaches make it ideal for cannabis enthusiasts who want the next level of relief. Expect to feel relaxed, happy, and creative when you smoke Grease Monkey. You can also expect to feel hungry, or perhaps sleepy if you consume too much of this high-potency bud.

For munchies, don’t shy away from spice, because this powerful smoke may make your mouth feel a little bit on the dry side. Most customers say the dry mouth doesn’t bother them too much, given that they’ve already been lifted into a feeling of euphoria. When physical and mental stress both fade away, all that’s left is a serene focus.

This strain is great for microdosing because patients say even small doses can provide lasting relief throughout the day. Just don’t overdo it, because the Grease Monkey THC content averages out at 26% and has been tested as high as 30%. This strain is like a skilled mechanic– treat it with respect, and it will help get you where you want to go.

Grease Monkey Description: Taste and Flavor

The funky diesel smell will hit your nostrils hard when you start breaking up these dense buds. Sniff your way through that, and you’ll be rewarded with sweet and sour citrus notes. The smoke itself is spicy and smooth, and you’ll taste the fuel notes in addition to sweeter supporting flavors. If you’re looking for a discrete puff, this might not be your best option– Grease Monkey is better suited for showing off a stinky strain to your friends.
