Information about Skywalker Alien:
By itself, Skywalker is an amazing strain. Paired with its impressive psychoactive content, its Indica-leaning qualities become an ally against stress and afflictions accelerated by it such as anxiety and depression. Pairing it with Alien OG, however, paved way for the plant to reach its full potential. The latter is more potent and has provided users with a reprieve against various afflictions.
The result of the pairing is Skywalker Alien. A weird name, sure. But, it’s phenomenal effects and stable levels of 25% to 28% THC have great recreational and medical potential. Even more interesting is how its predominantly Indica structure delivers a superb mind-bending high. Sadly, it remains an elusive strain kept out of the public eye by breeder secrecy.

Though predominantly Indica, Skywalker’s high is cerebral in nature. In fact, its initial onset is marked by a rush of euphoria. As it elevates the mood, it leaves users feeling happy about themselves and their surroundings. Users will have to prepare some snacks ahead of time though. After all, the mental buzz does get one hungry.
In time, the powerful muscle relaxing effects begin to ebb down from the temples. Though intense, it is not at all body-slamming. Instead, it mimics the rhythmic flow of waves until it frees each and every limb of tension. Enveloped in an uplifting buzz, users feel comfortable regardless of what they are doing.
Carrying over to Skywalker Alien’s flavor is its chemical scent. In fact, its strong overtones of diesel are quite sour on the palate. But, on the exhale, herbal flavors of tea and pepper mellow the sharp smoke and leave a woody aftertaste.
Consuming marijuana always leads to dehydration regardless of the strain being smoked. The symptoms are most evident in the mouth. With cannabinoids blocking the production of moisture in the tear ducts, users end up with dry eyes as well.
Having a drink, however, will help mitigate the dry spell. So long as it neither alcohol or coffee, of course. In such case, the safest choice is always hydrating with water.
High THC strains may also induce momentary dizziness and headaches. In large doses, they can trigger paranoia or heighten levels of anxiety. Besides one’s disposition before the first hit, another important factor is individual tolerance. As such, marijuana should always be pace and consumed with caution.
Whether rightly or wrongly, marijuana consumption is perceived as a pastime. But, its chemical compounds are not without their therapeutic value. For one, it can be used as a stress reliever. Its mood stabilizing properties calms turbulent emotions, feelings of anxiety, and fast-paced thoughts. Replacing it is a sense of wellbeing that encourages self-confidence. Similarly, it can be used as an anti-depressant.
The same psychoactive compounds also stimulate the appetite, especially as sudden contractions in the gastrointestinal tract are relieved. This can also be attributed to Skywalker Alien’s analgesic properties. In high amounts, THC can reduce sharp pains and dull aches caused by fatigue.
A testament to its excellent Indica genes is Skywalker Alien’s sturdiness. Its thick stems and branches protect against bugs and pests. Meanwhile, its mold and cold resistant genes help the plant withstand sudden changes in weather, temperature, and high levels of humidity.
Grown outdoors, Skywalker Alien thrives. Though it has no problem facing the cold, it still prefers the warm, sunny environment that most plants are accustomed to. For this reason, many commercial growers prefer growing the strain in controlled environments. In this way, breeders can easily set lighting to a 12/12 cycle and adjust heat levels.
Skywalker Alien’s buds take on an Indica structure as well. They are dense pepper-shaped and come in sizes ranging from small to medium. Flashes of light orange hairs and a sharp neon green contrast and enhance its stunning dark olive hue. And, lastly, as a testament to its potency, a thick coat of crystallized trichomes.
Skywalker Alien matures around the last week of September. Although, sometimes it may extend up to the second or third week of October depending on unpredictable factors such as weather. Regardless, the Indica-leaning hybrid yields more than 10 ounces of buds per plant.
