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 23% and 25% THC.
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. 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. In high enough doses, Grease Monkey can counteract insomnia, lulling smokers into a deep and restful sleep. Because of the initial risk of out-of-control “mind race,” this strain may not be the best choice for patients who are prone to panic.
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.
