The Monkey Business strain is a rare Indica-dominant hybrid (70% Indica / 30%Sativa). It resulted in crossing the infamous Gorilla Glue #4 and Fornicator strains. The weed is known for its calming and soothing properties, allowing you to destress, calm down, reduce any racing thoughts and achieve deep night sleep. The dominant terpenes in the Monkey Business cannabis bud are limonene and bisabolol, which are responsible for the Monkey Business marijuana's pungent, spicy herbal taste with sour citrus lemon undertones and more flowery aroma. The weed contains an immensely high THC level of 26-30%, so it is suitable only for veteran smokers.
