S.A.G.E stands for Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium, meaning it is a perfect blend of indica and sativa. The breeders at T.H. Seeds have crossed an Afghani indica with Big Sur Holy, a sativa strain, resulting in this first generation hybrid masterpiece. S.A.G.E is Adam Dunn’s (cannabis entrepreneur, founder of T.H. Seeds and Hemp Tailors) favorite strain, and he has persistently smoked it for over 25 years.
The high is a subtle blend of indica and sativa effects, which will balance out into a motivated, highly focused and calm state of being. The physical effects are highly enjoyable, as an enjoyable relaxation takes over the body without reaching the feeling of heavy legs or tiredness. Those looking for a daytime smoke that can be incorporated into a busy day will appreciate S.A.G.E’s charm.
S.A.G.E Terpene Profile
The flavor and aroma of S.A.G.E are simultaneously earthy, peppery and spicy. Upon inhaling mellow citrus notes are underlined by an overall muskiness while hints of sandalwood linger on the finish. Meanwhile, an earthier, licorice depth is sometimes present on the exhale. S.A.G.E is a great strain for indica lovers who appreciate that profound herbal richness.
Medical Benefits S.A.G.E
Ongoing research has found that in higher doses THC may help with Glaucoma, by reducing pressure in the eye. THC and CBD have also been found to have pain-relieving qualities that are thought to amplify when the cannabinoids work together. Meanwhile, CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Considering this, this high THC, moderate CBD strain may be somewhat useful for relieving pain and inflammation often experienced with joint pain, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
How to Grow S.A.G.E
S.A.G.E will grow medium-tall and flowers in 10-12 weeks. As a 50/50 mix of indica and sativa genetic it produces incredibly well with Sea of Green and SCROG methods. Although, its sativa traits do shine through in terms of size so this hybrid may be better suited for growers with some experience. When flowering, S.A.G.E’s buds will grow large and dense, especially during the final two weeks of the blooming period. Outdoors, S.A.G.E performs very well, however, is recommended to growers with longer summers.
