Alien OG was originally developed by Swerve of Cali Connection. It is a cross between Tahoe OG, which is believed by some to be the original kush, and Alien Kush which stems from Kyle Kushman’s Las Vegas Purple Kush. The light green buds have a covering of red or orange hairs and should be airy. It is considered one of the most potent strains available today.

Alien OG Review – Everything you need to know and more!

With its high concentration of THC, Alien OG is among the strongest strains of marijuana and can quite literally turn you into an “alien.” First bred by seed company Cali Connection, this sativa dominant hybrid strain is a crossbreed of Tahoe OG and the already well known Alien Kush, sometimes called Alien Dream strain. Alien OG’s effects are primarily described as euphoric and relaxing with a nicely balanced body and cerebral high. It is also known by other names such as Green Alien strain, Tahoe Alien strain and Alien OG Kush .

Perfect for making edibles, this strain packs a strong, sweet piney aroma accompanied with bursts of citrus flavour. Newcomers are advised to stick to low doses with this heavyweight.

Is Alien OG a sativa or an indica?

What is OG weed?

There is some debate regarding the exact definition of OG, with some saying that it stands for “Ocean Grown” and others claiming “Original Gangster.” Most tend to lean towards the latter. A strain with OG in its name is related to the legendary OG Kush, either through several crossbreeds or directly.

OG Kush is known as being the parent strain of some of the best marijuana in the world, including the following:

  • Rebel OG
  • Kosher Kush
  • Crown OG
  • Phantom OG Kush
  • Grapefruit OG
  • Orange Sherbet

The high concentration of THC in Alien OG makes it a good choice for edibles, shatter, and other concentrates. Its super-dense buds are full of its distinct, sweet piney flavor. Make sure the weed is well grinded before use to make the most out of the bud.

If making edibles, you should use already vaped bud (AVB) especially because of Alien OG’s high potency. However, if you do prefer to use fresh buds for edibles, please be sure to decarboxylate your weed first!

Alien OG strain Growing tips

This is a relatively difficult strain to grow because of the plant’s highly sensitive root system. Therefore, it is best grown indoors in a well-controlled environment. Temperatures should be maintained at 20 – 26 degrees Celsius throughout the growing process. A relatively short and bushy plant, larger leaves may need to be trimmed in order to allow for light and air to reach its lower parts.

Ensuring the best possible quality of Alien OG also requires a tricky curing process post-harvest; this aims to preserve the very high levels of THC. It consists of 2 stages: First, flowers must be hung upside down for 7 to 10 days in a dry environment. They should then easily snap off the stem and must be placed in airtight jars for storage, maintaining an optimal temperature of 20 degrees Celsius throughout curing and storage.
