This cannabis strain will produce an intense high that brings together heavy indica body effects and a psychedelic cerebral buzz that may involve visual distortions like enhanced colors or peripheral flashes, a trippy sensation of time moving more slowly, and more. As the high progresses, physical relaxation sets in, especially when used in higher amounts. This strain can be as energetic or as relaxing as smokers intend. It is as easily enjoyed out among friends as it is vegging out alone. This strain’s well-rounded high also lends itself to several medical applications. Its euphoria can assist those struggling with depression, while its cerebral nature can be helpful for those with stress, anxiety, or PTSD.
Its body effects, while not couch-locking, can be helpful in relieving chronic aches, pains, and nausea. In high enough doses, it may be an effective means of banishing insomnia and lulling users into a deep, refreshing sleep. Beginners and novices, be sure to take it slow with this heavy-hitter.
Alien OG has the typical lemon “OG” smell and flavor. Along with this sweet citrus-like smell, there are also more subtle notes of earth and fresh pine. When lit, the flowers give off more of a spicy, hashy aroma also typical of the OG family. The smoke is usually thick but quite smooth. This is a really pungent strain, and its smell can linger after it is smoked so it might not be the right choice for any smokers trying to keep their consumption discreet.
Plant & Origin
This strain was first available as a clone in California’s Bay Area and now in seed form from Cali Connection. It was created by crossing Tahoe OG and Alien Kush. This cannabis plant could be difficult grow, and may not be the best for those new to cultivation. It is known to have trouble developing a root system and may require potting with rockwool and a significant amount of nutrients when first planted. The short, bushy plants may also require topping, by trimming large fan leaves in order to allow light and air to reach flowering nodes on the lower branches. It flowers within 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors to offer an average yield. Growers need to take careful care when curing the plant to preserve its high THC content.
