Looking by his catalog of flavors we got here throughout the “Grease Monkey” and it immediately grabbed our consideration. Grease Monkey is a cross between GG4 and Cookies & Cream.

Plus we received the prospect to smoke a number of the Cuban Growers private stash of “Cookies & Cream” hash and we knew proper then the mixture of those strains have been going to supply some out of this world resin.
