Alien Stardawg has a sharp chemical aroma due to its diesel or fuel overtones. Enhancing it are notes of citrus and cherry which give it the sourness a sweet hint. Crushing then combusting the buds produces a spicy pepper with undertones of hash.
Drawing Alien Stardawg’s smoke can induce a little bit of coughing, especially among first-time users. However, it eventually settles, and the tongue tingles with its sour chemical flavors of diesel and fuel along with citrus. On the exhale, it leaves a sweet cherry aftertaste complemented by the taste of pepper.
A cottonmouth is a normal reaction to Alien Stardawg’s moisture inhibiting cannabinoids. At times, it is accompanied by red eyes. It is barely noticeable, and most seasoned users often ignore the dryness. However, users may also ease it by hydrating before, during, and after the high.

In inducing its happy high, it clears the mind of looking deadlines and overwhelming anxiety over work.

Hence, it makes for a good anti-depressant as well.
It has a soothing buzz that releases tension, pains, and aches. It has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling in the muscles. It relaxes the body and prevents it from spasming. Because of this, it works as an effective anti-spasmodic that provides comfort to patients with multiple sclerosis, fatigue, cramps, and injuries.
Its ability to appease painful contractions also work effectively against gastrointestinal pains. It eases the stomach, so food travels down faster. In doing so, it allows patients with eating disorders such as anorexia or cachexia that prevent one from eating heartily.
Alien Stardawg presents a typical Sativa structure. It is tall but, because its stalks are thin, it is extremely lanky. Its branches are also quite feeble and may break easily due to various growing conditions like strong winds or heavy rains. In such cases, it is best to protect the plant by installing a temporary enclosing especially when growing it indoors.
It is a great candidate for the Screen of Green method. Growers can not only keep it short through the technique but also encourage bud production through even light distribution. One only needs to weave the branches into the net and spread the budding sites.
A hydroponics setup will also improve yields and trichome production since it delivers nutrients straight to the roots. The buds it produces are also ‘cleaner,’ as it rarely requires the need for pesticides. However, for tastier buds, growers should consider using soil as a medium. It is also easier to manage and cheaper.
Indoors, Alien Stardawg flowers between 10 to 12 weeks. Growers are rewarded with at least 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter at harvest.
