Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: Despite the fact that ARC is an indica-dominant variety, it provides an upbeat, cerebral high, coupled with a less potent body high. This is a great strain for productivity.
This is some of the most flavorful bud around. The intensely noticeable flavor of lemon-lime and danky Kush lingers around for 10 to 15 minutes after smoking. The aroma is of sour Kush with a slight fruity smell lingering around. These buds are pretty dense and frosted all over with trichomes and very few bright orange pistils. Most dispensaries are selling Alien Rock Candy for around $60 for an eighth.
This strain puts out the best yield when vegetated for a month or longer and topped once or twice, during veg. They tend to grow a moderate amount of side branches and can put out a heavy yield of up to a quarter-pound per plant, in a 2-gallon container, when grown indoors by an experienced cultivator. Outdoors these ladies will reach around 5 to 6 feet in height and put out fairly heavy yields. Clones from Alien Rock Candy root extremely well and show roots within just a few days of planting in rock wool. This is a great strain for beginning growers, as well as seasoned ones. Seeds in non-feminized form are in short supply, so many growers might be better off looking for clones of ARC in a dispensary.
