Green Monster is a pretty balanced 50/50 strain that originates in the United States. It was created by a three-way cross between the OG Kush, the Purple Urkle, and the Killer Queen strains. Despite its evenly balanced sativa indica combination, users may note that its effects may be leaning towards the indica traits.
Flavor and Effects of Green Monster
Despite its name, the Green Monster offers a pretty mild and natural blend of fragrance and flavor profile. When combusted, its taste is rather pleasurable with notes of pine, earth, and wood. On exhale, however, it provides a chemical fuel-like aftertaste that lingers on the mouth.
The Green Monster’s high starts with a relaxed high that will put a smile on the user’s face. It provides a euphoric mental buzz that is mellow and mild and does not come too strong to be crippling. Soon after, some of the indica sedating effects will kick in. As many users note, it is hard to get a grasp on reality as the high progress. This cannabis strain is especially known for its long-lasting and high that can last for hours on end. Another thing to note about this strain is that once the effects leave, users will be hit hard with extreme cases of munchies, so it is better to plan accordingly.
What are the Medicinal Benefits of Green Monster
This strain is known for its medicinal benefits. It is especially helpful for patients who are struggling with symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. Its relaxing effects towards the end is also helpful for insomniacs or just about anyone who may be having problems sleeping. It is also an effective pain-killer and anti-inflammatory agent, making it very effective against many cases of pains and aches including mild headaches, migraines, chronic pain as well as muscle spasms.
Negative Effects of Green Monster
Smoking this strain above tolerance limits will often lead to increased levels of paranoia and panic. In addition, users will also feel dizzy with a bit of headache, especially during the onset of the cerebral buzz. These effects are rare, though. The most commonly reported effects from the strain, however, are dry mouth and dry eyes.
Growing Green Monster
Growing the Green Monster cannabis strain requires experience. It is a bit temperamental and requires more attention, care, and nutrition than many other cannabis strains. Plants, however, do not usually provide a high abundance of yield, and the flowering time usually clocks in at around 56 days. It grows well in both indoor and outdoor settings with a warm outdoor climate. Indoors, it thrives well in the hydro medium as well as in soil medium. Outdoors, it requires the appropriate amount of attention to ensure it does not succumb to mold, mildew, and other common diseases.
