Alien Candy comes from the union of parent strains Tahoe Alien and Sour Bubble. The resulting Alien Candy strain is an Indica-dominant one with an Indica/Sativa ratio of 80/20. It contains a low to moderate THC content ranging from 15.5% to 17.5% as well as CBD content of up to 0.84%. This weed has very fruity flavors and mildly relaxing effects.

Aroma and Taste of Alien Candy

Both the aroma and flavor of this marijuana contain strong fruity notes. The most obvious ones you can sense as soon as the buds are broken apart are those of citrus fruits. Varying notes of lemon and orange come through in the flavor, accompanied by different sweet undertones. Such a fruity kick makes it a very good cannabis strain either to smoke directly or to use its oil in baking some goodies.

The following terpenes combine to create this strong flavor profile:

  • Caryophyllene - notes of lime and other fruits
  • Myrcene - notes of orange
  • Pinene - sweet and earthy undertones
  • Limonene - strong taste of lemons and lime

Main Effects, Side Effects, and Uses

Consumers report that this weed makes them very relaxed overall, both mentally and physically. All of their worries are washed away and feelings of happiness take over. There is a strong sense of euphoria that can be felt too. All of this, however, is not couch-locking. Instead, people claim to have an increased sense of creativity after having this cannabis. All of this makes it a good choice for afternoon consumption.

Because of its lower THC content, it may be consumed by beginners as well. However, it can cause some side effects like paranoia and slurred speech so the dosage needs to be carefully managed. If you are a medical marijuana patient suffering from issues like arthritis, muscle spasms, lack of sleep, or fibromyalgia, Alien Candy might help you in treating your symptoms.
