For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some Monkey Glue that’s made by Good Supply. The name is pretty cool; outside of that, the whole experience was somewhat below average for me. This hybrid strain has anywhere between 12% and 22% THC and an insignificant amount of CBD; this batch specifically came in at 15.41% THC.
It’s interesting because, based on consumer reviews, it seems like people actually really enjoyed this.
I have not found any lineage information on this strain for the moment.
- Lineage: Unknown

I always read reviews on goods that I’m going to review to get a little bit of perspective, and this Monkey Glue was full of positive ones, so when I opened up the bag, the disappointment slapped me in the face.
First of all, there were many little leafy, bad-looking popcorn buds all over the place. Second, the dryness was out of control; I had to (very carefully, so the nugs don’t break) place the weed in a jar to check the humidity content; it was at 32%, which is WAY too low.
The visuals were somewhat OK, nothing too crazy or unique here, leafy green buds with some trichomes.
Unfortunately, the terps seemed like they were dead on this strain. I rehydrated the weed for 24 hours to bring it up to 62% humidity, and it still smelled like nothing, a tiny herbal touch. Once bid up, not much changed.
I don’t want to use the whole “you get what you pay for” excuse here because I’ve tried out a few strains with comparable price points that were actually good.
If you are looking for the best aroma, then you must check Karma Strain which is my personal favorite in terms of aroma.

Like the aroma, unfortunately, the flavor on this strain does not have much to offer, seems like the terps didn’t survive this one. There is a very subtle herbal flavor on the inhale, and not much but earth and nothing more on the exhale and the aftertaste, quite disappointing.
I know, I know, you’re reading this Monkey Glue strain review and it sounds like the worst weed in the world. I wouldn’t say the worst, I’ve just tried WAY better, however, this aspect was actually quite pleasant for me. The cannabinoid content in this specific batch was actually quite low at 15.41% THC, and I enjoyed the light buzz that it gave me.
I found it to be pretty good for the daytime as it doesn’t really give you that lazy vibe, keeps you energized and focused while taking the edge off.
I would be interested in trying out a different batch of this Monkey Glue to see if this was just a “one-off,” but based on what I’ve tried out here, I wouldn’t really recommend this to anybody; it’s a waste of money in my opinion. Instead, I would suggest trying the long-standing fan favorite Sensi Star.
I’m hesitant because of all the positive reviews that I read on this; my experience was pretty bad, as you can see.
Some good alternatives for the Monkey Glue strain are:
- Sensi Star: A classic indica strain known for its strong and relaxing effects, with a sweet and earthy aroma. It’s a bit pricier than Monkey Glue, but it’s worth it for its potency and flavor.
- Blue Dream: A popular hybrid strain with a sweet berry aroma, known for its balanced and uplifting effects. It’s a bit stronger than Monkey Glue, with THC levels typically around 17-24%.
- Green Crack: A sativa strain with a fruity and citrusy flavor, known for its energetic and focused effects. It’s a bit stronger than Monkey Glue, with THC levels typically around 15-25%.
All of these strains have better aroma and flavor profiles and are stronger in terms of potency compared to Monkey Glue.
