Space Monkey Strain

Bodhi Seeds is well known for their top of the line creations, and hybrid Space Monkey strain is no different. This genetic masterpiece is the product of crossing Gorilla Glue, a regular on weed-related “Top 10” lists, and Wookie #15, a rare strain known for its tasty flavor profile. 

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period
15%/85% 2.13 oz to 2.45 oz/ft2 1.63 oz/ft2 to 1.96 oz/ft2 9 weeks

It is indica dominant, with an 85% Indica/15% Sativa split, but users can expect equal parts cerebral and physical high. Despite its high THC content, averaging 16% to 23%, the Space Monkey strain effects are surprisingly modest and a lot more forgiving on new smokers than most strains of this potency. With only trace amounts of CBD (less than 1%), it is easy to mistake this as a purely recreational strain, but it still packs a medical punch thanks to its superstar terpenes. These include humulene, bisabolol, and limonene, with caryophyllene being dominant. 

At first glance, the plant itself is as humble as its effects, reaching an average height with small to medium buds. On further inspection, you will notice that these emerald green nugs are drenched in trichomes. The combination of the rich green nugs, burnt orange pistils, and sticky trichomes creates an almost “glacier in the sunset” appearance that promises an unforgettable experience.

A bear can go up to 100 days without eating during hibernation. Can you imagine how hungry that bear must feel when it wakes up? Well, smoke a little Space Monkey, and you’ll get the idea.

Space Monkey Strain Fragrance

Imagine you’re driving down a road lined with lavender, jasmine, and grapevines. Oak trees stand nearby, and you recognize hints of citrus – a mixture of oranges and lemons. Whiffs of fruit and florals penetrate the hot asphalt. As the scents from outside waft through your open window, you’re surprised to discover the exhaust from your vehicle both contrasts and compliments the swirling aroma. This is Space Monkeys’ fragrance.

Space Monkey Strain Flavors

Your mouth will water when reading a Space Monkey strain review. The sweet muskiness of crimson grapes blends with the freshness of citrus to create a fruit cocktail blend that couldn’t get better. But then it does. 

The flavors are wrapped in a bouquet of lavender undertones and finished off with subtle hints of spice. The inhale hints at the many flavors, but it is the exhale that brings them to life.

The well-balanced high of Space Monkey strain can leave you feeling uplifted while also boosting mental focus and sense of creativity. Find seeds with similar effects in our shop.

Adverse Reactions

The Space Monkey marijuana strain offers total body and mental relaxation without sacrificing function and mobility. It delivers the ultimate high without losing all control. This best-of-both-worlds experience has garnered Space Monkey a reputation for being a safe choice for rookies still learning the game. But don’t be fooled – with a THC level ranging from 16% to 23%, this is by no means a mild strain. 

Some users have reported experiencing anxiety to varying degrees, and for some reason, most of these reports come from men. Perhaps men consume larger quantities at one time than women? If so, that would increase the probability of feeling anxious. Either way, any smoker, regardless of experience, gender, or THC tolerance, is at risk of experiencing this reaction, so avoid overindulging. 

Whether this is your first time smoking weed or the Space Monkey weed strain, the best approach is slow and steady to reduce the risk of unwanted side effects. One side effect you can’t avoid, however, is cottonmouth. It is a small price to pay for a strain of this caliber, and water is all you need to ease the discomfort.

Growing Space Monkey

The Space Monkey marijuana strain doesn’t discriminate, so nearly anyone can grow this strain. You’ll need moderate skill, yet it’s still a manageable choice for budding growers looking to transition from easier crops. 

Space Monkey is not available as feminized seeds, so you will need to pay attention to your plants as they begin to take shape. The female plant is the one that develops the resinous nugs, and the male is the one that gives pollen. Unless you are looking to breed, remove the male plants and focus on harvesting your females. Alternatively, you can use cuttings from a female plant (still in the vegetative state) and raise clones. Many have reported Space Monkey as having substantial yields when harvesting clones.

Space Monkey produces an average to large yield and can be grown indoors, outdoors, and in a greenhouse. The plant itself is not very large, reaching a modest height of just 51 inches. You can set your crop up for success by implementing techniques such as topping, low-stress training, and defoliation.
