Grease Monkey is an indica-dominant hybrid from Exotic Genetix, the breeders who have given us standout strains like Kimbo Kush and Starfighter. 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 16% and 30% 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.
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.
