Appearance & Aroma
This Indica flower is appreciated for its hazy and mellow properties, better fitted to a laid-back day than a productive one. It’s excellent as a sweet treat to enjoy with both your morning coffee and your after-dinner dessert.
Grease Monkey’s flowers have a characteristically Indica form, with dense and solid nugs of medium size. The flowers stick together in elongated, conical shapes. The leaves appear light green with hairy, deep orange pistils. Possibly most impressively, sticky crystal trichomes cling like frost to the inner and outer exteriors of the nugs, accounting for this strain’s trippy properties and making it quite difficult to break apart without the aid of a grinder.
Flowers of Grease Monkey give off an odour that is sweet and skunky. The power of Chemdawg and Sour Diesel — by way of parent strain Gorilla Glue — is apparent in the astringent, fuel-like first notes. On closer inspection, a more elaborate sweetness becomes obvious.
Consumers might pick up on some creamy vanilla odours alongside a yeasty, bread-like base. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking apart the flowers gives some spice and pepper aroma, proving OG Kush’s parent strain Girl Scout Cookies’ background. Grease Monkey provides a smooth smoke when combusted; it tastes like vanilla with the clashing flavour of gasoline. Beware to users looking to keep their consumption discreet because this can be an especially pungent flower.
Effects & Benefits
Grease Monkey guides users into its high, with gentle pressure in the face, especially around the eyes and temples. It radiates a warmth that goes through the core and limbs within minutes, crushing lingering muscular tension. As they feel relaxed, smokers may also see that their powers of perception are also sharpened. External stimuli like sounds or sights may take on new dynamics. Moreover, a cerebral mindset might take over, making users shift from one thought to the next. These thoughtful, trippy effects can lend themselves to a free-flowing conversation or simply daydreaming.
As the high goes on, Grease Monkey’s Indica side takes over, pinning consumers in place and bringing them to engage in more passive activities like eating or watching TV. In fact, Grease Monkey has primarily been known to induce hunger. Although higher doses of the strain can draw users into a deep sleep, in average amounts, it is an exceptional choice for morning or daytime, giving a good balance of physical and mental effects.
Just as it has many recreational uses, the Grease Monkey strain also has a variety of purposes for medical cannabis patients. It can be a balm for the signs of mild to moderate stress and depression, taking the edge off of patients’ frazzled day-to-day lives. Its sedative features can also relieve aches and pains of all kinds, either chronic or temporary. Meanwhile, anti-inflammatory effects can effectively remedy discomfort like nausea.
