Alien OG takes its name from its parents Alien Kush and Tahoe OG Kush. It is a very potent strain, which is capable of relieving severe medical conditions.
Even though Alien OG is a balanced hybrid, its THC level can reach up to 30%, although around 25% would be more usual. This makes it an excellent choice for dealing with crippling pain and deeply negative emotional states. The power of Alien OG means it should be treated with respect so, even if you’re familiar with medical marijuana, always follow the old advice to “start low and going slow”.
As you might have expected from a balanced hybrid, using Alien OG is like an experience of two halves. The first half involves the Sativa genetics and is a bright, sparkling head rush. It will blast away both physical pain and unhappy mental states. The second half involves the Indica genetics and will make you deeply relaxed and dozy. You will feel so relaxed it will be easy to drift off to sleep.
Alien OG can be grown both indoors and outdoors, although, it needs a mild climate to be happy. Indoors it will be ready in 8 to 9 weeks. Outdoors you will collect your harvest around the end of September or start of October. Indoors you can expect your plants to grow to about 1.2M tall. Outdoors they can reach up to 1.5M in height. If growing conditions are exceptionally good your plants may grow a bit taller. Indoor harvests are usually in the region of 350g/m2 and outdoors you will be looking at about 400g per plant.
Although Alien OG has balanced genetics, it definitely looks like an Indica. The plants are quite attractive as they have dark green leaves covered in glittering white trichomes and colourful orange hairs. It certainly smells like a classic Indica, with lots of menthol pine and citrus lemon.
When properly cured, Alien OG tastes very similar to Lemon Skunk. It even has the same fresh pine top notes, but there is also a warm spiciness to it. In fact there a definite sweet-and-sour tingle to the flavour along with more than a hint of wood.
