Much like a visitor from another planet, no one knows about East Coast Alien’s origins. The cultivar is thought to be the descendant of East Coast Sour Diesel (also known as NYC Diesel,) and Alien Technology, a landrace cannabis strain from Afghanistan. Each parent plant is infamous for its energizing and sedative effects respectively, and consumers report that East Coast Alien’s effects rest squarely in the middle of that spectrum. The strain produces tall plants with bushy foliage and abundant branches, rewarding skilled growers with larger yields. When grown outdoors, the cultivar should complete its flowering cycle by late September. Otherwise, the strain’s growing characteristics are unknown, as seeds are notoriously difficult to find.
