Alien Cookies is a balanced hybrid (50% indica/50% sativa) strain that is created through a cross of the Alien Dawg and Girl Scout Cookies. This bud is extremely rare to find, but once found it is totally worth it because it has the amazing qualities of its parents. This hybrid is hard to find because they are difficult to grow as these tall and lanky plants require support.
The strain is said to have a pungent, earthy, sweet vanilla flavor profile and heavy trichome production. The flowering time for this high-yielding plant is around eight to nine weeks. Flowers are lumpy with many leaves, amber hairs, and matching trichomes that envelop nugs.
These hybrids have a happy and relaxing nature, powered by a THC level of 21%. This is mild and relaxing initially but can prove to be debilitating if one is not careful. This strain may treat appetite loss, stress or anxiety, muscle spasms, insomnia, and pain. It is best taken in the evening.
