Strain Type - Indica-Dominant Hybrid

With 70% indica and 30% sativa, Grease Monkey is a true indica-dominant hybrid with powerful effects and a delicious smell and taste that will keep you coming back for more.

That strong indica energy is responsible for this strain’s legendary reputation for inducing a floaty, dreamy vibe that will make you feel like a pat of butter gently melting over a baked potato. It’s a blissful high that pairs beautifully with the enlivening effects of the sativa genetics for a subtle uplift.


Grease Monkey is a cross between two hybrid strains: Cookies & Cream and Gorilla Glue #4. It was created by Exotic Genetix, who wanted a delightful hybrid that could bring the best both its ancestors had to offer.

Cookies & Cream lends Grease Monkey its delicious, sweet flavor and long-lasting power. GG4 delivers the legendary potency and Grease Monkey’s sleepy, sedating effects. The distinctive combination of these strains in Grease Monkey will have you floating on cloud 9.

How does Grease Monkey make you feel?

For such a powerful strain, Grease Monkey effects are surprisingly subtle. Take a toke and you’ll be tempted to top off the deceptively mild initial sensations—but hang tight because this monkey has a few tricks up its sleeve.

You’ll notice a growing feeling of euphoria before you’re slammed into the full-body high, soaring up to the clouds before you begin to float through the universe. Calm and dreamy energy come next, lulling you like the waves of a great ocean.

As the high settles in, you’ll likely be tempted to close your eyes for just a minute and sink into couch lock—one of Grease Monkey’s side effects. Allow the calm sensation to fill your body with bliss as you drift into a daydream, or settle deeply into a night of restful, restorative sleep.

THC Potency

Despite its playful name, Grease Monkey isn’t messing around. With an average THC level hovering around 26%, this powerhouse strain is more than ready to get the job done.

This high THC dosage means Grease Monkey is best reserved for experienced users who want an intense and transporting experience. Remember: Start low and go slow.

Strain Aromas

Grease Monkey buds have a lovely forest green hue that deepens over the strain’s flowering time. Breathe deep and you’ll notice a pungent, earthy scent, with a light touch of vanilla reminiscent of creme brulee. Slight skunky notes on the exhale keep things interesting.

Strain Flavor

Some fans describe Grease Monkey’s flavor as addictive, and who are we to disagree? Inhale, and you’ll feel like you’re biting into a butterscotch cookie, with notes of vanilla, nuts, and brown butter. The exhale brings a sour lemony note that livens up this gourmet toke.

Grease Monkey’s Prominent Terpenes

Those distinctive sour lemony notes that make Grease Monkey so addictive are due to limonene, which also brings a light uplift.

With sweet, fruity, herbal notes, calming myrcene is responsible for this strain’s euphoric and blissful smoking experience.

Creating a balanced blend of soothing and uplifting effects, slightly spicy caryophyllene is responsible for this strain’s cinnamon sugar notes.
