This sativa-dominant hybrid (80% sativa/20% indica) sprouts long, finger-shaped buds that are thick and super-packed with calyxes and trichomes. The aroma wafting from these nugs has a sweet but pungent kick, with traces of jet fuel and hints of fruit.
After exhaling the smoke from this cannabis plant, the taste of artificial grape mixed with an earthy, funky flavor fills the mouth.
This strain is good for a shot of pure energy to the head, providing clarity and focus for tasks that require concentration. For these reasons, Monkey Paw may help those with ADD/ADHD, lack of motivation, or the lack of will caused by depression. While it counteracts fatigue and stress, it can also stimulate appetite or alleviate pain. It’s recommended for daytime use, but it can be taken in the later evening, too.
Cottonmouth seems to be a given with Monkey Paw, and it may cause slight anxiety in higher doses, particularly in those with sensitivities to sativas.
