About the Grease Monkey Kush
Grease Monkey Kush is a hybrid of 2 popular Sativa strains, OG Kush and Durban Poison. It has the strong smell and flavor of Sweet & Sour Widow with hints of pine and lemon zest. The effects are uplifting and energetic at first; however, as the high builds, it turns more into relaxation and euphoria. This is a very potent marijuana strain that people should use sparingly until they know how it affects them.

Fragrance & Flavor Profile
Grease Monkey Kush is a Sativa dominant strain. The smell and flavor profile of this strain is what you would expect from the Indica/Sativa ratio: earthy, spicy, with subtle hints of citrus. I find that it absorbs more of the polarities of its parents than it displays itself, so while there are some OG Kush notes, such as a pine/dirt scent that comes through during combustion or vaporization, most people will enjoy Grease Monkey Kush for its unique fragrance and taste. Where Durban Poison is sweet-smelling with a strong berry aftertaste, Grease Monkey Kush is a little more savory and spicy. It’s still an excellent tasting smoke, though!

Grease Monkey Kush is an aesthetically pleasing bud. The large, dense calyxes that hold the pistils are a beautiful purple hue. The pistils themselves are orange-colored and bushy, which stands out against the greenery of the bud itself. Grease Monkey has some frosting, but for the most part, it’s clear enough to see right through to the small leaves of the plant’s interior.

THC & CBD Content
Testers over at Marijuana.com conducted some testing on Grease Monkey Kush and found that it has an average THC content of 17%, with some samples even reaching up to 24%.
This intense high is more than enough for most smokers, but novice users should still proceed with caution. Other tests showed CBD levels as high as 0.26%, which will help to counter the intense psychoactive effects if you’re planning on smoking this strain for medicinal purposes.

Onset & Duration
While the high THC content means that Grease Monkey will quickly take effect, it also means that you’ll probably want to smoke this strain in a social setting as it’s not going to wear off anytime soon. When consumed orally, expect a much longer duration of effect and increased psychoactive effects. You can expect up to 3 hours of relief from one dose, so if you’re using Grease Monkey Kush for medical reasons, make sure to have something on hand to work through the day!
Grease Monkey Effects On User
Medical Benefits of Grease Monkey Kush
Grease Monkey Kush was made for relaxation and stress relief. This strain is especially beneficial to those suffering from anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADD/ADHD, and even some chronic physical pains. The high CBD content of the strain means that it will help with inflammation and pain relief without producing any psychoactive effects or “stoning.”
Beginners should be careful when trying Grease Monkey Kush at first– especially if they’re sensitive to Sativa strains. Relaxation and euphoria can quickly turn into discomfort if you’re not properly prepared for the effects of this hard-hitting weed variety!
Caution and Side Effects
You may feel slightly paranoid or dizzy when smoking this strain for the first time, but both are mild side effects that are common. If you find your symptoms are more severe than usual, discontinue use immediately and do not consume any more until you’ve discussed it with a medical professional. Like all cannabinoids, CBD can also cause some unexplainable reactions in users if they have an allergy or sensitivity to the compound. Consult your doctor before trying any new medicines!
Grease Monkey Consumption Method
This strain is often smoked despite the obvious benefits of vaporization and ingestion. If you’re not a fan of inhaling smoke, I recommend trying out some vaping or edibles to get the most from your medicine. Vaporizing Grease Monkey Kush produces an earthy, woodsy flavor with hints of citrus and spice– so delicious! The effects are similar to smoking but without the negative risks associated with inhaled burnt plant matter.
Edibles such as brownies or gummies can be made using cannabis oil; however, we strongly advise against cooking CBD into any other foods unless you know exactly what you’re doing. Despite its low risk, ingesting too much CBD can cause adverse effects for first-time novices. You may find that the psychoactive effects of Grease Monkey will last much longer than expected if you take it orally. I suggest consuming small doses throughout your day to regulate your intake and avoid any unpleasant surprises!
Grease Monkey Kush Recommended Dosage
Like all cannabinoids, the dosage can vary drastically depending on your tolerance and need. I recommend trying out around 1-2 grams of Grease Monkey Kush (depending on quality) per person in order to find the ideal dose for you. Beginners may want to start lower with just a few milligrams in order to avoid any unpleasant or unexpected side effects!
Grease Monkey Strain: Grow Info
Growing Grease Monkey Kush is incredibly easy– but you’ll want to make sure it’s under some sort of controlled environment. If you’re growing indoors, I suggest using an 80/20 mix of soil and potting soil with added perlite for aeration. Ensure that your root zone isn’t too moist or dry by checking the moisture levels every day or so. You can water Grease Monkey just once a week on average, but this will vary depending on lighting, climate, etc.!
Make sure to leave at least 18 hours of lighting during the flowering period in order to encourage resin production if possible! If you notice any mold or mildew forming on your buds, switch over to 12/12 lighting until the problem clears up before exposing your plants to longer hours.
As for Grease Monkey Kush flowering time, 50 days is the recommended amount of time to let your plant set in order to induce optimal bud production. Keep in mind that this strain grows much faster than most and may take up to ten days less than other varieties! Harvesting should happen when you notice that 80% of your trichomes have turned cloudy or amber– look closely at the buds when deciding when to cut down your plant.
Grease Monkey grows very bushy and can easily be top-rooted if you decide not to add any supports for its branches. This means it will grow much larger than expected indoors unless you’ve allowed enough height in advance! You’ll need a decent amount of space.
