All About Alien OG Cannabis Strain
The Alien OG strain was first available in clone form in California’s Bay Area. Now it’s available in seed form in Cali Connection. This strain is an amazing cross of Alien Kush and Tahoe OG, which makes it part of Sativa and part Indica. It has the typical lemon and pine flavor and smell of OG marijuana, while the effects combine both the psychedelic cerebral buzz and the heavy body effects of its parents.
It goes without saying that this famous drug is hard-hitting. The 50/50 hybrid gives users a potent and refreshing high, accompanied by a citrus and woody aroma and lemony flavor. Not only does it improve your day by giving you a high – but it also helps you relax and focus, making it a perfect afternoon smoke.
Because of the presence of both Sativa and Indica, the Alien OG offers an amazing psychedelic high accompanied by cerebral stimulation and deep relaxation of the entire body. The THC content of this strain ranges from 14% to 17%, while the CBD level is usually around 0.1%

The Alien OG makes for a moderately difficult grow, which doesn’t make it ideal for new growers. It’s best grown indoors and can have some trouble developing a root system. Therefore, it frequently requires rockwool potting and plenty of nutrients when it’s planted.
The plant is short and bushy, which also requires topping, done by trimming the large fan leaves. If this isn’t done frequently, the leaves will cover the flowering nodes on the low branches and prevent them from getting light and air.
Alien OG is known to flower within eight to nine weeks and offers somewhat of an average yield. Once harvested, growers need to properly cure the flowers in order to preserve the high THC composition. Curing takes two steps that involve hanging the flowers upside down first for a duration of 7-10 days. This has to be done in a 50% humidity room that has a temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The second step includes sealing the buds in airtight and clean jars once the stems snap off the flowers. The space in which the buds are placed needs to maintain 60-68% humidity and a temperature of 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
