Sour Alien sprouts dense yet spongy, dark colored buds with firey red pistils and a moderate trichome covering. The aroma from this cannabis plant is equal parts citrus, skunk, and jet fuel, and when burned these indica-dominant (60% indica/40% sativa) flowers taste like sweet pine mixed with chunks of fruit.
Lab tests put its potency at 13-16% THC, which is roughly the average.
This strain provides a shot of energy to the brain, bringing on cheerful and soothing feelings. It’s a strain that one can be functional and focused on, even while medicating. Sour Alien is recommended for migraines, head and neck aches, nausea, and minor pain. It can be used throughout the day, although some patients may want to test it out in the morning before risking being wired all night long.
Common side effects from Sour Alien include dizziness, cottonmouth, and red eyes.
