In case you take this in the morning, be prepared to take a nap in the course of the day. New patients especially may be overwhelmed by the effects of this strain. It has moderate THC levels of between 12%-15% and CBD of less than 1%.
Lemon Alien has a number of therapeutic properties; most notably it may be used in the treatment of glaucoma.
