Gas Monkey is an Indica-based marijuana strain that hits slowly but surely. It boasts 25-27% THC and 0.78% CBD, and due to its potency, smoking this weed is only intended for experienced smokers.

The strain is a chiller, and it usually aims for a deep relaxation experience. Untrained smokers will likely find the strain's effects too intense to handle. The origins of this cultivar are unknown. However, it features two strains: Grease Monkey and Gas.

The Gas Monkey strain has myrcene as its primary terpene. The psychoactive effects of myrcene include stress relief, relaxation of the brain and muscles, and sleepiness. Lighting up this weed on a hard day's night will help you find all the peace and serenity you need.

Effects and Uses

The intense high that comes after the first puff is enough to get high and ease thoughts. Best taken after a stressful day, the Gas Monkey will help with toning down anxiety, and additionally:

  • Prevent panic attacks
  • Fight depression
  • Increase appetite
  • Reduce mood swings
  • Regulate sleep

As for its side effects, there are not many, but one can expect:

  • Intensified sleepiness

If you strive for a wind-down experience, make sure your work for the day is done, and allow that long-awaited puff to help you to ease your thoughts.

Taste and Aroma of Gas Monkey Strain

Because of its parental cannabis genetics, Gas Monkey has a potent odor. As it belongs to the skunk families, both Grease Monkey and Gas contribute to its pungent smell. Some consumers may notice a limonene tone as well, one that gives the strain its sweet aroma.

The taste is described as fuel-forward, meaning it has heaviness and richness at the very first inhalation. The limonene and pine terpene that go with the Gas Monkey strain awake your senses and leave stress at the front door.
