Alien OG Flower
Strain: Alien OG Flower
Contributor: Payton Sedgwick
Alien OG is an extremely potent mix of two equally powerful strains, Tahoe OG X Alien Kush. This strain has astronomical THC levels, reaching anywhere from 20% to some being tested closer to 28%! This is an Indica Dominant strain that will have you couch-locked for the night after just a couple hits; therefore, it is not a good strain to smoke if you have anything essential to accomplish. It also has out of this world, super-heavy Sativa effects that will creep up on you throughout your high. While the Limonene gives this flower an overpowering freshly picked lemon aroma, you’ll get no hint of it in the taste. The Caryophyllene gives this flower its very distinctive OG peppery spiciness that fills the air after being burned, and contains a slight hint of dry pine in the flower's scent the real cannabis connoisseurs can identify. The Myrcene gives it the dry, earthy flavor in the smoke upon exhalation. With this intense blend of hybrid effects, it is no surprise that Alien OG is so popular in the medicinal community for those with more severe conditions, and considered one of California’s best OG strains.

Alien OG has your typical, eye-catching appearance of an Indica dominant Hybrid flower. It has a fairly dense, light green bud structure that is broken up by a few large, dark green sugar leaves. This particular batch did seem to have more than your average amount of large sugar leaves left over, which is normally handled in the trimming phase. The bud was entirely frosted in a thick layer of white trichomes that will bring any experienced stoner to recognize this as an OG strain. Underneath the snowy layer, red-orange pistils bunch up around the fluffy green leaves.
The first recognizable scent is citrus, like a freshly picked lemon, and it hits you in the middle of the nose when appreciating this flower. Those with a skilled nose can catch the slight traces of dry pine in the background, and can sense it towards the back of their nostrils. This flower does have a very particular smell that reminds one of fresh moss in a forest after a rainy day. Once you burn this flower, familiar smells of its OG lineage stand out as that peppery spiciness disperses through the air around you.
The only thing I was not thoroughly impressed with was the taste while smoking this flower. With the citrus aroma so forefront, I expected to taste that. Yet, what I experienced could be best described as parched earth. It tasted like I had quite literally gotten some dry dirt in my mouth; it was such an odd, and unpleasant sensation given the pleasing aroma.
One thing I must say immediately is this is not a strain for beginners! With the THC levels reaching a whopping 31% on this specific batch, this strain is a heavy hitter, to say the least. Even as a regular smoker, one taste and I was abruptly abducted, and at the will of this strain’s strong Indica effects, and even stronger Sativa-like daze. This flower starts acting quickly and creates a blissful, stoney high. It felt as if I was couch-locked in space, as my body became extremely heavy, and my motor functions delayed noticeably. After a moment in this stoned state, your mind blasts off to another galaxy; all your senses heighten and little movements around you can be very apparent and occasionally alarming. This will help zap away all concerns, and drift you off into a relaxed state of mind. It is not an optimal strain if you have something important to accomplish.
