Dropping as Illuminauto #41 in 2020, Bear Assed Monkey was an Artisanal head-to-head of one of our favourite Indica-leaning hybrids and a straight-up, no-nonsense 50/50. 3 Bears has been a strain we’ve loved to tinker and tweak with crosses since it was first released; it quickly became a cornerstone of our Artisanal collection. There are so many branches of the Mephisto genetic library that have their roots in this stellar beauty, and for good reason. Crossing her with 4 Assed Monkey was an open goal as far as we were concerned, that straight-up lemon funk from Mother Bear mixed with the classic diesel, chocolate and coffee from Daddy Monkey. The Gorilla Glue parentage shines through, an old classic brought back to the fore, making this the only glue on the market worth huffing.
