Perfect for a stoner car-person, the Grease Monkey strain is ideally consumed after a long day of working or racing. It is an indica dominant hybrid bred from the Gorilla Glue and Cookies and Cream strains, making it a pungent but sweet delight. Bred by Exotic Genetix, it pleases the senses and snaps apart like a carrot at its freshest.

Upon opening the jar, you can sense an aroma of freshly baked bread with a subtle vanilla undertone. Looking in the jar, you can see the nugs are a deep green hue. The groupings of dense buds have several fiery orange pistils scattered across the nug’s surface. The gleam and frost you may notice are due to the crystallized trichomes. When you are ready to grind and enjoy, the freshest nugs will snap apart like sticky wood. When smoked, the taste of the nugs resembles the aroma, with notes of gas with vanilla and pepper that may tickle the taste buds.
Grease Monkey Genetics & Terpenes
The Gorillia Glue parent strain, also known as GG4, is popular and comes from the triad of strains including Chem’s Sister, Sour Dubb, and Chocolate Diesel. Its pungent nature may lead to potential effects like stress reduction, less anxiety, and pain-relief. Similarly, the Cookies and Cream strain may also further reduce stress and anxiety with sweet vanilla tastes. The dominant terpenes within Grease Monkey are Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Myrcene. The Caryophyllene adds a peppery taste, while the Limonene may add a sweet, lemony, and citrusy taste. It is a terpene often used in some perfumes and cleaning supplies. Limonene’s properties often include stress-relief and uplifting qualities that may also be good for anxiety. Another terpene added is Myrcene, which is a very common terpene. It has a floral and sometimes berry-like smell and potentially lends to a blissful and relaxing effect.
Possible Strain Effects
Can’t sleep? This may be the solution; this indica heavy variety commands the mind to sleep and may space out your thoughts. That is also to say, this is not a strain to smoke right before you do tasks that you need to be alert for. The high may slowly creep up and make your head become heavier until you feel the need to take a nap.
Grease Monkey Reviews
Many people who have tried this strain say it mostly helps with stress, anxiety, and pain.
Amazing! This one made it in to my top 5 strains. If you’re into exotics, this is definitely one to try. The gorilla glue and cookies & cream came together perfectly. I can taste a little more of the cookies and cream. The high is really heavy taking away my pain/anxiety and yet leaving me inspired. VERY TASTY! Try it now and thank me later-Leafly Reviewer
