Alien OG is a hybrid cannabis strain created by The Cali Connection. It is slightly sativa dominant and was created by crossing Tahoe OG Kush with Cali Connection’s Alien Kush. The result is a strong psychedelic high that is both cerebral and physical. It is a highly potent strain with THC levels as high as 28%.
The Alien OG buds are small and nugget-like. The leaves are light green and have orange or red pistils. Furthermore, the flowers are resinous and covered in trichomes. The plant has a sweet citrus smell with notes of earth and pine. When burnt, the smell becomes more spicy and hash-like, typical of OG strains. It produces a smooth smoke, but is has a very strong aroma, which smokers should keep in mind.
Alien OG results in a rapid high that begins behind the eyes. Users experience racing thoughts and newcomers may find it slightly overwhelming. Some have reported psychedelic effects, such as visual distortions, enhanced colors and a sense of time slowing down. As the high continues, a sense of physical relaxation kicks in and ultimately, the effect can be energetic or relaxing, depending on context and dosage.
Many find that the strain has beneficial medicinal properties. It can help those who struggle with depression, stress, or anxiety. Furthermore, the physical effects may help alleviate aches and pains. In very large doses, it can even help with insomnia. However, those who are prone to anxiety may find it induces mild paranoia, so should treat Alien OG with caution.
It is a moderately difficult to grow strain that suits indoor conditions. It may require potting with rockwool and a large amount of nutrients to aid the root system. The plants are likely to require topping and they will flower within 8 to 9 weeks.
