Grease Monkey Strain
Grease Monkey is an indica dominant hybrid strain, but it is sometimes a 50/50 mix. This strain, a gift from breeder Exotic Genetix, has an incredibly enviable genetic lineage of Cookies and Cream and Gorilla Glue 4. Thanks to this superstar genetic pairing, Grease Monkey is an insanely potent strain that inherits the best of both its parents’ worlds.
|Sativa/Indica||Indoor Yield||Outdoor Yield||Flowering Period|
|40% / 60%||18 oz per square meter||21 oz per plant||8 – 9 weeks indoors, October outdoors|
This weed strain has satisfyingly high THC levels – some varieties boast as much as 30% THC. If you’re new to cannabis use, it may be a good idea to start small.
Because of its Indica genetics, this strain may cause sleepiness, making it ideal for a lazy afternoon spent indoors. Grease Monkey mellows you out and calms you down, helping your body relax and drift off into a blissful sleep.

The Indica-dominant weed hits rather smoothly and results in a calm, tranquil high. When combined with its Sativa profile, there’s a feeling of mental stimulation after smoking it, making it perfect for an afternoon spent working on a creative project.
Smoking this strain leaves you feeling euphoric while releasing your stress. Grease Monkey sets you up for a cozy night in bed with a high that starts in the head before gently spreading throughout the body like a warm, wet blanket.
This hybrid strain has a robust set of terpenes that play a significant role in its skunky, sweet aroma. Beneath this fruity, grape-like scent is a pungent earthy smell that renders Grease Monkey impossible to smoke discreetly. It’s unique fragrance of sugary sweetness, and dank potent diesel hits your senses immediately after you light up.
Grease Monkey traces its lineage to Cookies and Cream, a high-THC strain with a wonderfully flavorful profile. This, therefore, explains this strain’s taste. When smoked, it leaves a hint of fresh vanilla and dank gasoline in your mouth, making it a pleasure to savor and enjoy.
Like many hybrid and sativa strains, you could experience anxiety, paranoia, and racing thoughts. For most people, this effect will feel like focus, but if you’re predisposed to anxiety or paranoia, it may be a good idea to stay away from the strain altogether. However, if you can’t resist its vanilla goodness, consider smoking it in small doses to ensure these effects don’t get out of hand.
Remember, marijuana can cause dry eyes and dry mouth. Grease Monkey is no different.
Grease Monkey has been used to soothe nausea and pain while also improving mood. It also increases appetite. That is why many with both mood and eating disorders rely on this strain for natural relief. Grease Monkey can also help you fall asleep and is commonly used for sleep disorders such as insomnia.
Grease Monkey isn’t the easiest strain to grow, but it is not impossible. Although it is Indica dominant, it grows like a Sativa. The hardest part is caring for it when it gets tall. You’ll need to practice pruning and possibly top your plants. Other than that, it’s a hardy plant that is resistant to diseases, molds, and bacterias.
This strain grows well indoors if there is enough space. What isn’t easy (other than the height), is the incredibly dank smell. You’ll want to invest in carbon filters. Outdoors it likes a humid, sunny environment in the 70s or 80s.
Grease Monkey has a relatively short flowering time of only 8 to 9 weeks. If grown well, it can yield as much as 18oz per square meter, making it well worth the effort.
If you have the perfect outdoor environment, Grease Monkey can yield up to 21 oz per plant. It flowers in October.
