Alien OG is a popular hybrid marijuana strain produced by crossing Alien Kush and Tahoe OG. This strain is widely known for its euphoric and energetic high, as well as its delicious lemony flavor. Alien OG has high THC levels of about 30%, which puts it amongst the most potent hybrid strains in the world. Because of its mixture of Indica/Sativa effects, you can really get the best of both worlds with this strain.
The effects of this strain are strong, given its high THC percentages. Alien OG’s average THC content is around 20-25%, however, some phenotypes are considered to have more than 30%, which means this strain is incredibly potent. The onset of the high will bring a rush of energy and happiness, boosting the mood of the user. This strain is also widely reviewed as encouraging a sense of confidence, given its ability to energize and uplift the user. During the first half of the high, Alien OG brings about a creative headspace that’s perfect for activities of all sorts.
As a bit of time passes, you will begin to feel this strain’s indica derived effects. Relaxing both the mind and body, the body high will calm the user and sometimes bound to the couch. While the initial high is conducive to productivity, this wave is best enjoyed somewhere mellow, with no expectations of accomplishing any tasks other than watching a good movie or two. Because of how potent this strain is, it’s important to track your consumption and make sure you’re not ingesting too much for your tolerance and experience levels.
Appearance and Flavor
The Alien OG plants grow short and compact. The plants are known for their dark green leaves, icy white trichomes, and curly orange pistils. Alien OG has a mixture of different tastes including pine, lemon, and earth. This natural flavor is very appetizing for most users with its taste being reminiscent of other Kush strains. The taste is also balanced and not too overwhelming on the consumer. The smoke from this strain is pleasurable and easy to inhale. Users can take multiple inhales without coughing or having any issues with their lungs.
As we mentioned before, Alien OG is a very potent strain with THC levels up to 30 percent range. Because of its hybrid nature, it can be helpful in treating both mental and physical conditions. With the initial euphoric onset, Alien OG’s high can help alleviate anxiety, depression, and chronic stress. Users are provided with a boost of energy and positivity, leading them out of any negative thought loops or stressful feelings that they were previously experiencing. It is also able to bring about a sense of focus and a clear mind, which lends itself well to patients with ADD and ADHD.
As the first wave of the high fades, the user begins to experience more of Alien OG’s indica lineage. A few tokes of this strain can help greatly alleviate musculoskeletal pain and inflammation. In addition, this strain can help treat neuropathic pain, which results from conditions such as fibromyalgia, neuropathy, and chronic fatigue syndrome. Alien OG can also help relieve migraines, nausea, and loss of appetite. For those in recovery from an eating disorder or those undergoing treatments like chemotherapy, these aspects can be really helpful.
Alien OG seeds would be best grown by those who have a decent amount of knowledge and experience. It needs fairly specific conditions and to be monitored closely due to the fact that it’s vulnerable to mold and rot. If you’re not located in a humid environment, you may want to consider growing indoors. On the bright side, this strain is pretty resistant to insects and other pests. The flowering period is around 7 to 9 weeks, and the yields are going to be about average. When grown indoors, the yield will be around 11 ounces per square yard, whereas grown outdoors, it will be approximately 13 ounces per plant.
