Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: Prepare to hack half a lung up. This bud is a serious cough-inducer that provides a powerful indica effect.Recommended mostly for nighttime medication, Tahoe Alien will abduct you from Earth and send you soaring amongst the stars on a powerfully enjoyable body high with slight cerebral effects intertwined. The buds are cone shaped with such a large amount of sticky trichomes that the buds will literally stick to walls if you press them against them. Tahoe Alien gives off a pungent Kush smell with earthy undertones. The flavor is of lemon, Kush, pine and earth, with a surprisingly sweet aftertaste. Let's be honest though, the flavor isn't what we're after, it's the effect. This strain has a powerful body high that is great for alleviating nausea associated with chemotherapy, as well as treating insomnia. Eighths of this bud tend to range between $50 and $60 in most dispensaries, but may be seen as high as $65. Tahoe Alien requires 9 to 10 weeks of flowering in order to build up all those potent trichomes, and is recommended only for indoor cultivation, although they should do fine outdoors in temperate climates. Be easy when feeding these ladies nutrients and increase the amount gradually, as they can be somewhat prone to nute burn. For hydroponic growers, you'll definitely want to add this strain as the yield will increase while retaining that potency which Tahoe Alien has become renowned for. This is a grade-A strain that should be added to everyone's medical garden.
