After about an hour or two, an uplifting, trickling buzz trickles down from the temples. It soothes the body in waves and gets rid of tension in the muscles. Planting itself in the limbs is a surge of energy that reinvigorates users through and through.
Alpha Cow is a pungent strain that emits a sweet blueberry scent even from its bag. Once opened, a tantalizing blend of toffee and crushed berries with a subtle floral undertone. Broken apart or combusted, a note of wet soil becomes apparent.
Like its scent, an assortment of berries floods the palate at the first puff of Alpha Cow. Blueberries, along with sweet toffee, accentuate the flavor when savored. However, on the exhale, an earthy aftertaste lingers in the palate.
Greening out is possible while using Alpha Cow. The symptoms usually range from a temporary dizziness or a mild headache, and a subtle bout of anxiety. At times, the heightened sensation can lead to a feeling of paranoia. Apart from one’s disposition before the high, another factor that contribute to such effects is overusing the strain. For this reason, users must use the bud with caution.
Cannabinoids interfere with the bodies’ ability to produce moisture in the mouth and the tear ducts. As such, it is not surprising for users to experience a cottonmouth and dry eyes. However, downing a few glasses of water will help manage the mild discomfort.
Presumably, Alpha Cow was created with a recreational goal in mind. After all, that has been the people’s assumption of marijuana use for the longest time. Still, the strain contains significant therapeutic value through the combined effects of its cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and terpenes.
The mood-enhancing high it induces, for example, provides a temporary reprieve against mental health issues such as depression or bipolar disorder. It positively affects outlooks and stabilizes turbulent emotions to help patients cope. Meanwhile, its calming head buzz makes for a great stress or anxiety reliever.
Stress also manifests in the body as in physical fatigue or exhaustion. Through the painkilling properties of its psychoactive compound, Alpha Cow appeases various aches in the body. The energizing effects also reinvigorates tired users.

There are two major factors to consider when growing Alpha Cow – location and climate. Sativas, and its hybrid offspring generally prefer the warm weather, constant sunshine, and long days of equatorial regions. In such conditions, it flowers fast and yields high.
This is not to say Alpha Cow does perform well in the colder weather of the northern hemisphere. In spite of the fluctuating hours of the day, the strain still blooms albeit a little late. For this reason, many growers prefer cultivating it controllable environments where it is easier to adjust lighting, temperature, and humidity to mimic a Mediterranean climate.
Indoors, Alpha Cow’s lanky structure necessitates an early topping to manage its height as well as staking for additional support of its stalks and branches. It should be trimmed now and then too. Not only will this improve light and air circulation, but also nutrient distribution since the plant no longer focuses on reviving dead parts.
Applying methods such as the Screen of Green and supplementing it with other Low-Stress Training techniques will encourage better trichome production. Meanwhile, using mediums like soil will bring out its delicious fruit-flavored terpenes. However, aspiring growers looking to produce ‘cleaner’ buds may opt for a hydroponics setup.
In the northern hemisphere, Alpha Cow blooms anywhere from the last week of October to the second or third week of November. Once mature, it yields at least 16 ounces of buds per plant.
