Alien Dutchess is a sativa cannabis strain that is often simply known as “Dutchess”. It is a strain that is particularly popular in Spain, but can be found in many other countries. The strain’s genetics are not known, but it is very much a sativa.
The buds have a spade-like appearance with loose leaves. They have bright yellow tones combined with green and red, as well as crystalline white trichomes. It also has an anthocyanin pigment that is activated during the winter season while growing.
When consumed, Alien Dutchess is said to aid creativity and concentration, while it will also boost mood and energy. As such, it is very popular with those who enjoy smoking during the day. It leaves users with a sense of euphoria after just a few minutes, and the effects can last for several hours. When smoked, there are flavors of berries and peppers.
This type of strain is often used by those suffering from side effects of chemotherapy, such as vomiting and nausea. However, it can also help with insomnia, depression, and bipolar disorder. While it is not often used to treat pain, the uplifting effects may provide some relief. There are no serious negative effects, other than dry eyes and mouth, while very large doses may induce sleepiness.
Alien Dutchess usually flowers in around 7 to 9 weeks and it produces a large yield. However, it is not an easy strain to grow and will require regular attention. It needs a warm and slightly dry environment and the plants grow to a medium height.
