Winning the Cannabis Cup of 2001, the well-balanced hybrid strain S.A.G.E. (Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium) produces a flavor and scent reminiscent of sandalwood and sage. Its buds are a bright and fresh hue of green covered with a thick layer of sticky trichomes.
THC levels generally average above 20%, making this strain extremely potent. Some crops have reaped in at 28% - so novice consumers take heed. Its high is known to increase creativity and focus, being a great choice for tackling creative projects. However, it will also relax the body and alleviate mild aches and pains, so ensure such projects don’t require too much physical work. The munchies can also be induced, so have snacks handy. SAGE will provide the consumer a long-lasting high.
Besides dry mouth and eyes, ill-side effects include dizziness, paranoia, or headache if higher doses are consumed or if tolerance of its THC levels is low.
It takes between 10-12 weeks for SAGE to fully flower, so this strain isn’t meant for the impatient cultivator.
