SAGE Is Extremely Heady But Technically A Hybrid
When looking into the genetics for SAGE I learned something interesting. Its name is an acronym meaning: Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium. As far as genetics go, the name is almost self-explanatory. This heady strain is a combination of an unknown Haze (Sativa) and Afghani (Indica).
The meaning for the name SAGE may lead you to believe its a 50/50 hybrid or something close. However, this strain is extremely Sativa-dominant.
The Haze in the genetics of SAGE is some combination of four, purely Sativa, strains. The mix of Mexican, Colombian, Thai, and Indian is sometimes referred to as the four brothers. They’re most famous for their place in the genetics of Jack Herer. The Sativa influence in SAGE’s lineage is obvious when you look at the airy, leafy flowers. The particular cut I received wasn’t trimmed the best and I could see the fan leaves trying to hug the buds as best as they could.
A Heavy Sativa Influence Definitely Shines Through
When I ground the flowers up I was quickly hit with a smooth, almost fruity scent. It was reminiscent of the light refreshing scent I associate with its cousin Jack Herer, but without the citrus. Putting the SAGE strain in the Vapexhale really let me experience these terpenes and I immediately thought of permafrost.The cool vapor reminded me of holding an ice cube in your mouth and inhaling.
SAGE is typically a potent strain. This particular cut tested at 23% THC and 1.8% CBD.
SAGE put me in a great mood and relieved any stress I had. It would be useful for someone suffering from depression, fatigue, nausea, or anxiety. This strain is what I want to have with my morning tea. It gives you energy to start the day and the inspiration to make it a good one.
