This month, we’re introducing strain Monkey Mints.

The Monkey Mints strain was bred by Exotic Genetix by crossing Grease Monkey and Mint Chocolate Chip. Known for its strong aroma, emitting a skunk and diesel essence, characteristic of the terpene caryophyllene. Monkey Mints is the ideal strain for someone looking for a relaxing, full body high. An evenly balanced hybrid, Monkey Mints, leaving consumers with a giggly mood boost, before setting in to chill out. With a naturally high THC percentage of 15% and higher, Monkey Mints is a heavier hitter.

Flavors, Aroma, and Appearance

Monkey Mints has a complex flavor and aromatic profile; while offering pungent notes of gas, chemicals, and skunk, it also bears a notably minty scent. This mint scent carries through to the flavor profile, which is minty and fresh on the inhale and spicy chemical on the exhale. Despite this interesting pairing, it makes for a smooth smoke and even better experience. As for appearance, Monkey Mints nugs are bright green and fluffy with purple undertones.

Benefits and Effects

People who enjoy the Monkey Mints strain anecdotally note its possible ability to sooth the body and ease symptoms associated with soreness, cramping and muscle spasms, nausea, and loss of appetite. This is likely due to its higher THC levels and terpene content, which interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system, specifically our CB1 receptors, to potentially help our body ease these various issues.

Based on reviews from Leafly and AllBud, the following are the most common reasons why individuals choose Monkey Mints strain:

  • Stress
  • Headaches
  • Inflammation
  • Pain
  • Cramping and Muscle Spasms
  • Anti-Nausea
  • Appetite Booster

Due to its strong “couch-locking” effects, it’s a strain that may be useful for medical patients looking for a sleep-aid or a replacement for other sedatives.


Anecdotal reports of Monkey Mints experiences reveal that those looking for a sedative, nighttime strain love Monkey Mints. One reviewer on Leafly exclaims, “Definitely puts you on the couch. Very nice high. Very relaxing. 5 stars for sure. Tastes great. Smells great.” While another claims, “It’s a heavy body buzz. Imagine a warm soaked wool heavy blanket draped over your shoulders and covered to your waistline.”

This association with a “warm heavy blanket” is the perfect analogy for the Monkey Mints experience. The effects garner a sensation that is comforting, warm and fuzzy. Consumers report that a full-body, tingly sensation is associated with the strong body buzz, and a deep sense of peace which encourages sleep and relaxation.

It’s the perfect pairing for a nighttime movie. Put on a comedy and enter into frenzied giggles as you slowly sink into your comfortable couch. Bring along a soft blanket and a few snacks, and Monkey Mints is sure to please.
