In creating the Sativa-dominant herb, breeders took Alpha Blue for its award-winning though-provoking cerebral high. Adding to its appeal are the hints of purple and red on its buds. Meanwhile, Alpha Express’ crystallized buds are an inheritance from Ghost Train Haze.

Resulting from the cross was Alpha Express, a bud coated thickly in trichomes with flashes of red all over. It is extremely potent and is immensely therapeutic.

    Alpha Express is not for the faint of heart. It boasts high THC levels between 19% to 21%. Not only that, a few puffs of its sharp smoke is almost enough to bring users to soaring new heights. Suffice to say, it is a dream come true for many thrill seekers. Still, beginners may enjoy the strain with the help of a seasoned friend.

    During the initial onset, a jolt of energy that begins from the temples surges through the muscles and the rest of the body. Along with it is an uplifting high that almost always leaves users feeling happy. Many find themselves more bubbly than usual although some become a little too chatty for their own good.

    For casual users, the mental clarity transforms the workplace. Not literally, of course. Rather, it makes way for a better flow of thoughts that eventually turn into innovative ideas. Coupled with a heightened sense of focus, users concentrate on tasks for longer periods of time.

    Gradually, the subtle reinvigorating buzz coursing through the muscles intensifies. It envelops users in deep relaxation as it soothes and calms the body. Used excessively, however, and the heaviness can anchor one to the couch.


    Alpha Express has a pungent diesel aroma blended with an herbal spiciness. Broken apart or combusted, a musky fragrance similar to wet soil fills the air.


    Alpha Express has a sharp smoke that, when drawn in, washes the mouth with a sour diesel. Balancing it is the taste of wet soil and spicy herbs that intensify on the exhale.

    Adverse Reaction

    Dry eyes and a cottonmouth are two unavoidable reactions while using Alpha Express. After all, cannabinoids contain moisture-inhibiting properties that not only interfere with the tear ducts but also the salivary glands. As such, it is best to stay hydrated before, during, and after sessions.

    In rare cases, Alpha Express can also heighten anxiety levels. It is mostly the result of overconsuming the Sativa-leaning strain beyond tolerance level. However, one’s disposition before the intense cerebral high can also be a contributing factor. Thankfully, the side effect is easily avoidable through pacing and moderation.


    It would come as no surprise if Alpha Express were created for recreation. But, even if it were, it remains therapeutically valuable to many medical users. Its potent THC levels, along with the help of its CBD and other cannabinoids, provide a reprieve against a myriad of health conditions.

    One of the best times to use Alpha Express is right before a meal. This is because it encourages a hearty appetite by reducing cramps in the stomach, especially in those with food-deprived bodies. It can also be used by cancer patients experiencing the harsh aftereffects of chemotherapy.

    The full-bodied energizing buzz it induces, for example, reinvigorates users from the head down. It enhances the mood and stabilizes turbulent emotions, which are often a symptom of fatigue or underlying mental health issues such as depression or PTSD.

    In clearing the mind and body of tension, Alpha Express helps users rest. Not only that, it enhances the quality and quantity of sleep.

      Climate and location play a big role in the overall development of Alpha Express. Typical of a Sativa-leaning strain, it prefers the warm, semi-humid weather of countries located near the equator. With abundant sunlight, the herb flourishes and flowers early in the year.

      This is not to say Alpha Express does not perform well in the cold climates of the northern hemisphere. Rather, it may blossom late around November. For this reason, many growers from the region prefer cultivating the plant inside controllable growing spaces such as greenhouses.

      In this way, breeders can easily adjust factors like temperature, lighting, and humidity to mimic tropical weather. However, its lankiness necessitates shortening the vegetative period to keep heights manageable. Apart from early topping, the plant also responds well to methods like the Screen of Green.

      Flowering Time


      Like most Sativa-leaning herbs, Alpha Express requires patience. It takes a long 10 to 12 weeks to fully bloom. On the bright side, growers will be well-rewarded with a harvest averaging between 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.


      In the northern hemisphere, outdoor grown Alpha Express usually blooms around the last week of October. However, it may extend up to the second or third week of November due to lack of sunlight or extremely cold weather. Still, it produces a hefty yield with growers harvesting no less than 16 ounces of buds per plant.
