Alien OG is an alien strain with a reputation all its own, but having roots in California's own OG Kush. The Cali Connection's Tahoe OG, a phenotype of the original OG Kush, and their own indica Alien Kush were combined to produce this sativa-leaning hybrid. Alien OG provides a powerful psychedelic high that is roughly equal parts cerebral and relaxing. The THC content of Alien OG can range from 20% to 28%. Alien OG, is relatively challenging grow, thus beginners to cultivation might not enjoy it. This strain is known to have problems establishing a root system and is best grown indoors rather than outdoors. It may need potting with rockwool and a substantial amount of nutrients when first planted. In order to allow light and air to reach blooming nodes on the lower branches, the short, bushy plants may also require topping, which entails cutting huge fan leaves. When grown indoors, Alien OG blossoms in 8 to 9 weeks and provides a typical yield. Growers must be careful to properly cure their flowers after harvesting in order to maintain the strain's high THC content.
