SAGE stands for ‘Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium’ and that’s just what this weed is; a well-balanced Sativa and Indica hybrid. The parents involved in creating SAGE seeds are Big Sur Holy, a Sativa dominant strain from California, and a potent Afghani Indica.
SAGE weed has a woodsy aroma with notes of pine and the flavor packs in lots of fresh herbs and finishes with a sweetish aftertaste. This is one of the most powerful weeds on the market and its careful hybridization means that it combines the soaring cerebral euphoria of a Sativa hit with the more sedative physical effects of an Indica. Medically, SAGE weed is recommended for stress and poor appetite.
With indoor cultivation, SAGE seeds produce plants that grow to between 120 and 140 centimetres and outdoors they can stretch as tall as three metres. The leaves are a medium green and quite broad and the elongated buds have a frosty coating of sticky crystals. THC content has been measured in the lab at an exceptional 24 percent.
Indoors, the SAGE strain does best in a soil medium and does well with SOG method, although you’ll need to trim it to keep it in shape. The plants don’t like to be overwatered, so don’t leave them standing in excess water. Flowering time is 10 to 11 weeks and yields are 300 to 350 grams per square metre.
Outdoors, SAGE seeds need a hot sunny climate and harvest in the northern hemisphere is quite late, usually early November. As the plants stretch so much outdoors, they need support as harvest time approaches.
Growers looking for a strain that combines the best qualities of Sativa and Indica types should give SAGE seeds a try. Its outstanding potency means that inexperienced smokers can be in for a shock if they smoke too much of this weed too quickly.
