With tightly packed light green buds covered in frosty trichromes and fiery orange hairs, Alien OG provides users with an intense, full-body high. A mix of earth, citrus and pine flavors, this indica dominant strain hovers between 26%-28% THC, sure to launch even the most dedicated of smokers into orbit.
Originating from the Bay Area, Alien OG is a cross of Tahoe OG and Alien Kush, and you can feel those potent parent strains working immediately. Alien OG generally beams up your head first, then works its way down for a heavy-duty high – expect to feel the traditional “couch lock” effect after just a few hits.
As always, the effects of a strain ultimately depend upon the user. If you’re new to cannabis, or it’s been a while since you last indulged, take your time with this strain. Wait a few minutes to see how you feel after your first puff before taking a second or third.
You may have guessed by now that Alien OG isn’t ideal for a wake and bake, unless you want to go back to bed. It’s far more of a Netflix and chill type – no, not that one, although cannabis is a natural aphrodisiac – we mean actually chilling on your couch, watching a few episodes of your favorite show or playing a few rounds of online co-op.
If the weather’s too nice to stay inside, that’s no problem either. Nature lovers rejoice: you can smoke cannabis in state parks and on beaches. Whether you’re around a campfire with friends or enjoying a day in the sand and sun, Alien OG makes a great companion for kicking back and relaxing, all day long. Although, whatever you choose to do, stock up on your favorite drinks beforehand, as Alien OG can make you a bit thirsty.
That said, before lighting up, check your local laws about marijuana consumption in public. And remember, if you plan to drive anywhere, keep your cannabis and smoking tools in your trunk, like you would with uncorked wine or an open bottle of liquor. Otherwise, you’re risking an open container citation.
To sum it up, Alien OG could also be known as a destination strain – that is, get to your destination and settle in fully before you get down to business…because after a few minutes, if your head isn’t quite in outer space, it’ll definitely be in high Earth orbit.
