Putting your finger on exactly what Alien Technology tastes like isn’t easy, for the simple reason that this stuff doesn’t taste like any conventional strain on the market.

As long as you’ve nothing of importance on your calendar, this is a self-indulgent strain that takes some beating.
What’s particularly interesting with Alien Technology Feminized is the way in which her powerful sedating effects are complemented by a sense of clear headedness and pure positivity.
