Not meant for beginners, Alien Dawg is one of the most potent and popular hybrid strains on the market today. This strain packs a punch. One should not underestimate its potency—a little goes a long way.
It’s a strain created by combining the Afghani Indica strain, Alien Technology, and Northern California’s hybrid strain, Chemdawg. That’s the origin of Alien Dawg’s name. This strain is a 70% Indica hybrid and has a 20% THC content. It’s known for its recreational and medicinal qualities.
Surprisingly, Alien Dawg’s nugs aren’t spectacular or eye-catching. They’re leafy green in color with clear trichomes and can have long red or orange hairs. The smell of this strain is more noteworthy. Many people compare it to sour candy.
It has a pungent and earthy aroma that is complemented with berry tones and has sweet pine and spicy undertones. It’s definitely a scent you’ll remember.
Alien Dawg offers an incredible mind and body high. It can make you feel incredibly calm and relaxed but can also be a bit intense—this strain is not suitable for most beginners. When taken in large quantities, it can leave you a bit sluggish or lethargic.
As a mood booster, Alien Dawg leaves you feeling euphoric and instantly happy. This effect can also bring about a healthy sense of wellness and make you feel more positive about life. Alien Dawg is great to get your creative juices flowing, and often encourages conversation and a more sociable outlook, making it an excellent choice for recreational use.
When used for medicinal purposes, Alien Dawg can help treat several mental and physical ailments. The heavy high it produces can be fantastic for insomnia as it promotes deep, restful sleep. The relaxing properties make it perfect for nerve pain and muscle spasms.
It’s also great for treating PMS symptoms and even helping people deal with migraines. For anxiety and stress, Alien Dawg can be useful, but for beginners, the intense high can also cause paranoia and contribute to anxiety. It promotes hunger, too, so it can be used to encourage a healthier appetite.
Alien Dawg is available for sale at local dispensaries, but you can also purchase seeds and grow it from scratch. It's among the easier marijuana plants to grow and does well both indoors and outdoors. However, the plant must be trimmed regularly, which can be a challenge for beginners. It’s best for intermediate or advanced growers who are more familiar with plant care.
