4 Assed Monkey, those familiar with Mephisto know we don't just use a name to sell seeds, or to jump on the hype train, or to piggy back off of someone else's hard work. It's not our style. Infact, to create a new auto strain that really bares a significant resemblance to the photoperiod strain you start with can take 3 outcrosses to your desired photoperiod to really lock traits down and to feel comfortable to put that little word, 'auto' before or after a famous strain name. To do that work could easily take 5-6 years total.
The 4AM is the GG#4 cut crossed to our grape crinkle and bred out to be fully automatic. Happy to say we're stoked with the outcome, and by calling it 4 assed monkey, that pays homage to it being related to Gorilla Glue #4, and also to our namesake where Dr. Mephisto made his 5 assed monkeys up in his lab. So to us 4 Assed Monkey seems quite poetic.
Strain behaviour and Structure:
4 Assed monkey is a speedy auto indeed, putting on flowers and putting out her sparkly oils from early in life. We would classify her as being on the smaller side of medium.
When given room to spread out and a good environment she will yield well, but is aptly suited to smaller spaces or to be grown in higher plant densities. We would recommend some leaf tucking and gentle manipulation to aid her on her journey, but with limited veg time isn't best suited to heavy manipulation and harsh training techniques.
Aromas range from earthy with hints of sour initially that develop into a fruity tropical blend that is ultra tasty and salivating. Flowers have tight formation encrusted in resin. Bag appeal is top notch on this lady.
