Just as we may never truly know what uncanny vessel crashed at the Area 51 site in Nevada, this aptly-named strain’s origins remain a mystery. Its buds smell like newly picked flowers splashed with lemon juice and pine.
Area 51 traditionally puts out nugs above the 20% THC range. On the other hand, the other cannabinoids in this plant tend to test out at near negligible levels, indicating this strain is best for a lost-in-thoughts kind of heady trip.
This strain is recommended for users wanting to treat high stress levels, depression, minor pain, or lack of appetite. Because it can increase energy levels, it’s a good strain for early day use, though it works well for night-time use. It’s not known for causing a knock-out effect, but users can sleep on it, too.
Smoking too much of this sativa-dominant strain may cause some paranoia. Blood-shot eyes and dry mouth are common side effects as well.
