Everything You Need To Know About The Alien Cookies Strain

Alien Cookies Strain Effects

Some of the reported effects of Alien Cookies include:

  • Euphoric
  • Uplifting
  • Happy
  • Hungry
  • Relaxed
  • Calm
  • Sleepy

Here’s how we like to describe Alien Cookies Strain effects:

The high starts out with a happy lift, leaving users feeling euphoric — but too much and you’ll be sent straight into couch lock territory. A few tokes are usually enough to ease your way into a relaxed, sleepy high. Perfect for a restful sleep, but first, you may find yourself eating your way through your cupboards, so make sure to have your favorite munchies on hand.

With a moderate THC level, Alien Cookies Strain is perfect for use as medical marijuana and may help with conditions, such as:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic pain
  • Anxiety

Things to Do While Enjoying Alien Cookies Strain

Initially, you may feel happy, euphoric, and uplifted… maybe ready to conquer a few tasks, even. But don’t get too excited because it won’t be long before you’re catapulted into total body and mind relaxation and sedation.

So, we recommend not planning anything too ambitious. Soon your couch or bed will be calling your name. This is a great time to pop in the headphones for your favorite music or podcast or catch a few classic reruns.

This definitely isn’t a wake and bake strain, rather you want to save this one for after work when you have nothing to do, or when you’re feeling wired and can’t get to sleep.

When under the influence of marijuana, including the Alien Cookies Strain, we ask that you avoid driving or operating heavy machinery. 

Alien Cookies Strain Terpenes

Terpenes not only drive richness in aroma and flavor, but they also help determine the type of high you can expect from a particular strain.

The dominant terpenes in Alien Cookies are: 

  • Limonene – strong citrus and bitter taste
  • Caryophyllene – rich spicy odor, pepper, spicy
  • Myrcene – spicy, earthy, musky
  • Pinene – earthy, woody, pine

These terpenes give Alien Cookies a flavor and aroma that’s both sweet and earthy and a pungent smell that gives off notes of vanilla as it’s burned.

  • GSC is an award-winning, Indica-dominant hybrid strain known for its euphoric effects and full-body high.  
  • Aliendawg is a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain that produces a sleepy mind and body high.

Alien Cookies Strain Reviews

We sourced the internet to bring you reviews from all over. Here’s what some users had to say about the Alien Cookies Strain:

  • Amazing!! It did not make me tired! I struggle with anxiety and depression. This stuff is magical! Makes me happy, uplifted, munchies, and just chill. My anxiety is gone. This is my go-to for chill at home weed. – Allbud user
  • I absolutely love this strain.. nice mellow high with a tasty terp profile. – Colorado user
  • I could never recommend anything more than this in good faith. Unlike other, more common, strains that end up curving off the high after a few hours, this one keeps going at more of a slow but strong burner. It takes away pain but I’d recommend more for stress. This has to be the best strain I’ve tried so far after over 2 years – Leafly user
