Effects & Usage



Grease Monkey is a comforting indica-dominant hybrid from the fusion of Cookies and Cream and Gorilla Glue. This potent strain has a THC content ranging between 18% to a staggering 30%, delivering unparalleled tranquillity with a euphoric uplift. It combines the best qualities of both of its parents, resulting in an enjoyable skunky, yet sweet smoke.


Despite its strength, Grease Monkey’s effects unfold softly and gently guide you into a serene, cerebral state. As mental upliftment commences, prepare for an intensified sensory journey, where your perception of sights and sounds gains an added dimension.

Your mind may also be running all over the place, filling you with many new and inspiring ideas. As trippy as this may sound, you are soon calmed down by a pleasantly warm, tingling sensation spreading throughout the body. All tension and pressure dissipate as time slows and you sink into the comfort of your couch.

This dreamy strain will be greatly enjoyed with a light novel in your hand or a comedy movie as a post-dinner treat at the end of a long, tiring day. Ensure enough food is handy, as Grease Monkey will make you hungry.


Grease Monkey is not only packed with flavour but also with therapeutic potential. Thanks to its mood-boosting, uplifting properties, supported by limonene, it may offer solace to those wrestling with anxiety, depression, and stress. Due to its relaxing action, the strain may relieve insomnia, helping deep and restful sleep.

Regarding physical ailments, the potent analgesic qualities may alleviate chronic pain, migraines and muscle tension. Grease Monkey also diminishes nausea and increases appetite, making it a valuable ally in the fight against eating disorders.

Side effects

The most common side effects of Grease Monkey are the sensations of dry mouth and eyes, as well as dizziness and anxiety. As a result of the strain’s potency, paranoia may also occur, especially if you are prone to mental health conditions. Therefore, practice responsible consumption, starting with a single puff.

Taste & Smell


Grease Monkey’s dense, conically-shaped buds are pale green, accented with vivid orange pistils. The abundance of resin and a thick trichome coating make this flower particularly sticky to the touch.

The aroma and flavour profiles combine the properties of both parent strains to produce a peculiar yet captivating blend. The scent mixes earthy musk with sugary sweetness, underscored by pungent diesel and spicy caryophyllene notes. Once lit up, Grease Monkey has a surprisingly sweet, smooth smoke, leaving behind the taste of cookie dough and vanilla sweetness with a hint of gasoline.

Grease Monkey was conceived by Exotic Genetix, a famous Washington-based breeder known for their fabulous genetic creations. With two premium parent strains, namely Cookies & Cream and Gorilla Glue, this cultivar can almost be considered cannabis royalty. This strain has embraced its parents’ soothing tranquillity and potency while evolving its exceptional aroma and flavour characteristics.

Growing conditions

Despite its high resistance to mould and diseases, Grease Monkey is a somewhat challenging strain to grow, demanding quite some attention and maintenance. It can grow equally well both indoors and outdoors, in a humid environment with temperatures ranging between 22-30°C, making it a perfect strain to cultivate during Thai winter. Despite indica dominance, it reaches a sativa height, necessitating regular trimming and pruning. Its smell might be very intense, so if you are farming it indoors, you might need extra ventilation.

The flowering period usually takes between 8 to 9 weeks. With meticulous care, growers can expect an impressive yield, around 500 grams per square meter indoors and up to 600 grams per plant outdoors.
