Alien OG, or Alien OG Kush, is a hybrid marijuana strain that’s roughly a half-and-half split between Indica and Sativa. Due to its strong effects and health benefits, its popularity has begun to spread in America and other parts of the world.
Alien OG was produced by combining Tahoe OG Kush and Alien Kush. It was first produced in the Bay Area of California by Cali Connection and typically has around 20% THC.
The dominant terpenes in this strain include myrcene, carene, limonene, and caryophyllene, which are good for treating inflammation, pain, hypertension, stomach and gastrointestinal issues, and anxiety.
Alien OG has a solid, thick structure with yellow and green coloring and bright orange pistils. It looks moist and frosty with a thick layer of trichomes covering the buds. When you smoke Alien OG, you may get a strong taste of lemon, pine, and pepper. It has a characteristic citrusy and earthy smell with notes of sweetness. Although it has a mixture of different components, the flavor is balanced and pleasant.
Alien OG is known for its potency, which may stimulate your brain to give you an intense cerebral buzz. Its balance of Indica and Sativa creates a relaxed, euphoric effect that relaxes and uplifts simultaneously. It also provides mental clarity and focus, enhancing creativity and helping stress melt away.
This strain is ideal for a variety of situations, whether it’s toking alone or hanging out with friends. The psychedelic head high can lead to deep introspection or fascinating conversations with others.
If you are a beginner, you should consume it cautiously as it has strong effects. As the name implies, it can quickly transport you to outer space. Keep some snacks on hand, as munchies are characteristic of Alien OG.
While Alien OG thrives indoors and outdoors, it’s great for indoor cultivation due to its compact, bushy growth pattern. Growers at any level can cultivate this strain, but it requires careful monitoring of light and humidity levels. It does best at temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees, with cooler temperatures at night.
Alien OG loves high humidity between 50 and 60%, but adequate airflow is also essential to prevent mold from forming on the buds. You’ll also want to supply plenty of nutrients, such as B-52, nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. The amount of nutrients it receives should more than double during growth. Additionally, Alien OG does well with hydroponic systems.
Practicing techniques like trimming and pruning will help ensure maximum yield, which averages around 500 grams per square meter of plant. It reaches the flowering stage quickly after 8 to 9 weeks. It’s time to harvest when the trichomes turn a milky white color.
