Appearance, Aroma, and Flavor
The buds of Alien OG are packaged as small, nugget-like clusters. Although the flowers often have a dense, compact bud structure, some phenotypes lean more Sativa and have looser, fluffier leaves. Its leaves look light green and are offset by orange to vibrant pistils, which are structures that allow the female plants to catch pollen for fertilization. Furthermore, the flowers of Alien OG are resinous, covered in trichomes that make them appear moist and frosty.
This strain has a sweet, citrus-like smell, with notes of lemon wafting up from the cured buds. Also, there are more subtle notes of earth and fresh pine. When combusted, it gives off a spicier, hashy scent typical of the OG family. Moreover, the smoke is lung-expanding but very smooth. Smokers may taste hashy incense and a faint tang of ammonia on the exhale. This is one pungent strain, and its odor can linger for a while after it is smoked; this might not be the right choice for any smokers trying to keep their consumption discreet.
Alien OG does exactly what its name entails. It makes the consumer feel alienish with a potent psychoactive experience. The high from this strain comes quickly as a bracing pressure behind the eyes. A sudden change in cognition accompanies this head rush, as thoughts race in a rapid-fire association. Once the euphoria settles down, it will start sedating your body. It is not the couch-lock sedation accustomed to other strains, though.
Because of its “racey” properties, however, this strain can sometimes lead to a kind of paranoid, recursive thinking for smokers who are inexperienced or prone to anxiety.
Medical Benefits of Alien OG
Alien OG’s well-rounded high also lends itself to several medical treatments. Its euphoria can be an improvement for those battling with depression, while its ever-present cerebral nature can ground and mindful for those with stress, anxiety, or PTSD.
Its palpable body stone, while not immobilizing, can be useful in alleviating chronic aches and pains and even nausea.
In high sufficient doses, Alien OG can even be an effective means of driving away insomnia and lulling users into a deep, refreshing sleep.
