About Fire Alien Black
Fire Alien Black is a strain by Exotic Genetix, the breeders out of Tacoma, Washington who are currently famous for breeding some new favorites like Cherry Cosmo, Goldust, Next Level, and Twizzle Dance. Fire Alien Black is one of the strains that put them on the map, in the cannabis community, bred as a cross between Fire Alien Kush and Blackwater.
It is related to Afghani, OG Kush, and Mendo Purps genetics, opening up the new strain to all kinds of crazy yet familiar indica flavors. If you want to know what to expect from this strain, continue reading to learn about this pink-purple phenotype and what it can do for you.
The THC level of Fire Alien Black hangs out around 20% with a CBD level up to 1.2%. The plant flowers at variable times, sometimes taking only 50 days and other times hanging on for 67 days.
Indoors, the plant is pretty short, often less than 30 inches. This makes Fire Alien Black a choice plant for people who need a short stack strain fit for limited growing space. So long as you can accept that yields just won’t be as impressive in such cramped quarters. Fire Alien Black will grow well even in tight spaces. Outside, the plants won’t grow monstrously tall either, maxing out at 60 inches.
The strain’s terpenes include an ample amount of terpinolene, with lesser amounts of limonene and linalool. From terpinolene, Fire Alien Black gets a sumptuous flavor of low-key fruit, best described as earthy pear, with undertones of woody flavors.
Limonene adds some bright citrus, forming a sensation of pineapple and lemon flavor. Linalool is harsher and a little more astringent here, adding a slight ammonia aftertaste to the strain. The result is a pretty relaxing, low-key flavor profile that only busts out its funky, slightly challenging flavors on the exhale.
The Fire Alien Black plant is brightly colored, with faded green leaves and calyxes cloaked in pinks and purples. In the soil, the strain gives off whiffs of strawberry and citrus (if you have the OG phenotype). The plant will stretch quite a bit while growing (2-3 times). If you plan on taking this strain on as a grower, we recommend using multi-top pruning methods to get the most out of it, especially if you’re in your tight indoor spaces.
As for effects, the Fire Alien Black strain is known for making people feel tingly-talkative, giving you a hunger-inducing, sociality-improving, even arousal-encouraging sense of calm. We recommend giving this strain a go when you want to hang out with friends, eat, talk, feel comfy, or spend the evening with someone special. Some users report dizziness and sleeplessness as side effects of this strain, so take it easy! Inhale Fire Alien Black slowly and calmly and it’ll do its thing.
