Tahoe Alien was reportedly bred by Alien Genetics, which crossed Tahoe OG with Alien Kush to create this otherworldly strain. Carrying an aroma and flavor often described as earthy and piney with sweet citrusy undertones, Tahoe Alien is often praised for its relatively high THC and cannabidiol (CBD) levels, which have been reported to range around 21% and 4%, respectively. The cultivar is reported to grow to a medium height, producing cone-shaped, light-green buds with amber trichomes and orange stigma hairs. While a 56-to-60-day flowering period is standard for this strain, some growers extend this cycle to increase density and potency. Sources claim that Tahoe Alien is best suited for indoor growing, but can also be cultivated outdoors in temperate climates. In July 2017, Alien Genetics announced that it would use their remaining Tahoe Alien pollen and cross it with Sour Apple IBL to breed Alien Apple Wrap, marking the final time Tahoe Alien would be used to create new strains. Other popular strains that Tahoe Alien is reportedly a parent include Ewok, Moonwalker OG, and Alien Rock Candy.
