Alf, which is short for Alien Life Form, is an indica-dominant hybrid that is both rare and very potent. The Captain’s Connection produced the strain by crossing Animal Pie with the extremely rare Black Raven and it is known for stimulating both mind and body.
It is a 70/30 indica-dominant that has moderate THC levels of around 15%. However, after just a couple of hits consumers will be feeling euphoric and may even notice some psychedelic effects. It has a sweet taste with smells of cherry and skunk, while the flowers have rich purple coloring with amber hairs and thick trichomes.
The initial high produced by Alf is energetic, but users may not have much motivation to get anything done. It is a creative high but can leave people looking in on themselves and enjoying exploring internal thought paths. Physically, it can produce a full body tingle, complete with hunger pangs and couch lock.
Alf is a strain that can help those suffering from depression, stress or anxiety as it often produces surges of happiness. Furthermore, it is a long lasting high that can be overpowering. As such, it can help with insomnia and chronic pain. Ultimately, it is a very introspective high that allows people to relax while enjoying creative thoughts.
Unfortunately, it is not a very easy strain to grow, which is one of the reasons it is so rare. It has a flowering time of 10 to 12 weeks and at best, it will produce an average yield. It can be grown both indoors and outdoors, and there is a large amount of debate about which conditions are best.
