Greasy Monkey stormed the market as soon as the Exotic Genetix introduced it to the public. If you are into exotics and love sweet cookie taste, this is definitely one to try.

Yet, this fabulous plant will leave you inspired. It’s a 100% Indica plant. It contains an insanely high level of THC that can reach 26%.

Smell and Flavor

Information for Growers

This strain is pretty hard to cultivate because of how tall it grows and how much care it needs. The constant need for pruning and topping can be quite daunting, and it takes some expertise and experience, so if you’re a beginner, you’re in for a challenging ride. The plant has great resistances which won’t be your primary concern, but if you choose to grow it in an indoor setting, you’ll need to implement a carbon filter to be able to cope with the smell that this plant produces. The plants need a humid and sunny environment to flourish, between 70 and 80F, and it’ll grow happy, producing a great harvest.

When grown indoors, it needs a high ceiling because the plants are very tall when fully grown. It takes about 8-9 weeks for the plant to reach its flowering time and be ready for harvest, and the yield would be around 18 ounces per one square meter.

For an outside grow the plant will be ready to harvest somewhere in October. The yield, when grown outside, is very generous as it reaches up to 21 ounces per one plant, which makes it much better for the grower to grow it outside if the climate conditions allow.

I grow this. The Phenotype i have is very frosty, doesn't stretch as much as it says on here. The stems are very thin which makes it hard when the buds get big. They're not gigantic but they are big and solid. It looks like someone threw powdered sugar dust on it. it starts looking that way around week 3-4 of flower (not 12/12, I said flower) The hash content is outstanding. If you press you can achieve at least 26%. The smoke is not as heavy as I thought it would be. Its not as sleepy as say a hard Skywalker but does get to your head in a sleepy way. You can smoke this and go to a party and stay awake. The initial taste is very diesely GG4 but then the finish is cookies and cream. Its quite an extraordinary strain and the pheno I have is amazing. If i could grow this particular one i have for the rest of my life, I would.

I never really thought there was a method of treating migraines naturally. When my husband suggested medical marijuana I thought he was out of his mind. But then after some research I stumbled on great reviews on Grease Monkey and I liked the name, never felt better in ages.

Back when I was working long nights my body started reacting by causing rheumatoid athritis. I tried pharmaceutical drugs but they had adverse side effects like chronic fatigue. Whereas this kush only takes me out for a few hours when I rest and helps reduce inflammation around my knuckles.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy or Regina a boring girl. This kush helps me unwind and think of everything else but work. It also helps me sleep better preparing me for the following crazy day in the rat race.

Good music and Grease Monkey with a couple of buddies is the best feeling on a calm evening. I get to unwind and rejuvenate myself and have deep thought provoking conversations with friends. I would definitely recommend this strain.

I have read a lot of comments about Monkey Grease initiating feelings of paranoia. My personal experience did not consist of these moments but hey maybe it works on a case by case basis. All I can mention is the high was very great and calming for me.

The kush looks very dark green when unwrapping it and the trichomes bring it to life. This is just one great aspect but the one I like the most is the effects and the aroma produced by this kush. It also tastes pretty good with vanilla and sugary notes.

The plant grows very tall and requires constant pruning and topping. The good thing is that it has great resistance. It can be grown indoors with a high ceiling and one has to use a carbon filter to trap the smell produced by the plant. In a sunny and humid environment, the plant produces high yields.
