Alion is a hybrid cannabis strain that is a crossbreed of Alien Kush and Blue Dream and displays strong characteristics of both. Alien Kush comes from the landrace strain Alien Technology from Afghanistan, while Blue Dream comes from California. Both of these parents help to create a strain that is euphoric and invigorating. It is a moderately potent strain with THC levels that range from 19% up to 23%.
Physically, Alion is green with hints of light purple. On the tongue, it is sweet with hints of fruits and berries. It has a very similar smell with traces of pine. Its high is known for being stimulating and cerebral; however, it should be treated with caution by beginners as it has been known to cause mild paranoia. Alion will also relax the body while providing a feeling of euphoria.
Thanks to these properties, the strain has been found to have some medical benefits. Many say that it can help with aches and pains throughout the body. Furthermore, some people have found that it helps with depression, stress, anxiety and even bipolar disorder. Alion has also been known to make people very sleep, so it may help those who suffer from insomnia. As with many cannabis strains, Alion may cause dry mouth and eyes.
Alion is best grown indoors. It has a flowering period of just 8 to 9 weeks, and the plants can grow up to 30 inches tall. It delivers a good yield of about 300g per meter squared, and it prefers a cool to warm climate.
