Grease Monkey Feminized Cannabis Seeds
Thanks to her unbelievably strong genetic heritage, Grease Monkey has a lot to live up to. A heavily Indica-dominant hybrid that is a nicely balanced and well-rounded smoke, this strain has been rounding up a veritable army of fans ever since hitting shelves.
With parents like Gorilla Glue #4 and Cookies and Cream, it's no wonder the crowds come back screaming for more - and that's not even mentioning the yield capabilities, the top-level potency and dense-as-all-hell bud formation, or ridiculously punchy terpene profile.

Ok, so we all know just how fertile of a breeding ground Northern Cali has been for top-shelf cannabis genetics in the past 30 years. There are very few places on earth with comparable local genetics, and the impressive thing is that those genetics are still being used in hybrids today. Grease Monkey is a prime example of utilizing an awesome genetic heritage to create something truly special.
Tacoma may not be the first city to jump out as a cannabis haven, with surrounding cities like Portland and Vancouver usually first to pop into the minds of stoners. But, boy oh boy, does the rest of the area have a debt to pay to the Tacoma weed wizards, and so do all of us.
Some truly gorgeous strains have made their way outta Tacoma, and it's hard to argue with Grease Monkey being the best of the bunch. Gorilla Glue #4 is one of the most common ancestors to today's best strains, but the addition of Exotic Genetix's very own Cookies and Cream make this strain a true standout.
With a 75/25 split favoring Indica over Sativa, you can expect this strain to hit hard, but even Mike Tyson himself would be surprised by the punching power of Grease Monkey.
Heavy hitting indeed, and that's down to a few key stats - chief among them being the truly outstanding potency. We are talking in excess of 27% THC, and even topping the 30% mark when grown in absolutely perfect conditions.
The wild Indica dominance offers what most have come to expect - that is, a heavy, almost overwhelming body-locking effect that offers huge relaxation and relief from body aches and pains. That's the main thing to take from Grease Monkey, its medical credentials are nothing short of outstanding for sufferers of chronic pain, digestive issues, and anxiety disorders.
The intense body stone is followed by a surprisingly uplifting cerebral high that is mostly down to the Gorilla Glue, which makes for a nice balance. When smoked (or consumed) in very large doses, users can expect a slightly trippy experience with a fog overcoming thought patterns, making full concentration almost impossible.
And if you think you've encountered the munchies before, wait until you hit up Grease Monkey. Normal dosages will make a huge impact on appetite levels and can give great relief to people battling through nauseous bouts.
But just remember, Grease monkey can (and given the chance, will) knock the bejesus outta you. Great if you want to head to bed, but if you're looking for a morning or daytime smoke then this one should be tickled with a healthy level of caution.
Perfectly suited to both indoor and outdoor cultivation scenarios, Grease Monkey will thrive in a huge range of climatic conditions. She's about as hardy as a cannabis plant can be, with growers reporting fantastic yields in both overly warm and cool conditions outdoors. We have even seen reports of her lasting (and thriving) through the thick smoke associated with the raging fires of Northern Cali in 2017.
For an Indica dominant strain, Grease Monkey is certainly a tall girl. Known to grow up to 150 cm (that's 5 feet), if you are thinking of adding her to your garden then you best get those pruning scissors ready. She is fine to be left as is, but if you top her a few times before flowering growth begins you'll be handsomely rewarded.
With a normal flowering period of about 9 to 10 weeks, depending on the environmental conditions and the specific pheno you end up with, you can rest assured the yield is going to be bountiful. For novice growers, If you're growing outdoors and plant early season, expect to pull at least 5 to 6 ounces. Growers with more experience should be looking at half a pound minimum.
Thanks again to the Indica dominance, the buds that you're going to harvest from Grease Monkey are about as dense as they come, and not much bigger than a Gatorade bottle cap. Growing in conical, almost heart-shaped clusters, these buds are so resinous that it's almost like they have been covered in psychedelic honey.
Aromas can vary very slightly depending on the phenotype, but you are going to most likely be welcomed with a deep, sweet, and earthy aroma - mixed in with some diesel fuel-like undertones. This is thanks to Gorilla Glue #4 parentage of Chemdawg and Sour Diesel, with the overarching sweetness coming the way of the Cookies and Creme. There's also a slight amount of pepperiness that becomes evident as soon as the nugs hit the grinder, but nothing overpowering or offputting.
Look, I may be just slightly biased (being a huge lover of GG#4, Cookies and Cream, and all things motorbike-related), but Grease Monkey is up there with the very best strains I have had the pleasure of rolling up in a very, very long time. I'm also a huge fan of Indica dominant strains, especially ones that can help bring some relief from my aging, aching joints.
I also just love to get absolutely blasted every now and then, especially with a tasty little number in my bowl. Grease Monkey is easy to grow, easy to smoke, and easy to love in general. I highly recommend it for those looking for a new addition to their rotation, especially for those wanting pain or anxiety relief, or those looking for a natural sleep aid.
While some strains veer wildly away from the aroma with the tasting notes, Grease Monkey stays pretty true to form. Again, you'll be welcomed with a delicious combination of earthy sweetness and diesel fuel-esque undertones, with just the slightest amount of pepperiness coming through. She then rounds out again to a more sweet and earthy finish.
She seems to lavishly provide after a slightly longer curing period (6 to 8 weeks), with the overall taste transforming into an almost pecan pie-like flavor as it lingers on the tongue. It's truly a unique taste and one that we can't recommend enough.
If you want to really get a taste sensation then try running her through a vaporizer. Grease Monkey is such a resinous strain that she absolutely loves to be vaped, and the mouth satisfaction is up there with the very best options on the market. If you really wanna get down and dirty with her, try making some homemade Rosin Hash. This helps remove any of the bitter melodies and fattens up the flavor dramatically.
