S.A.G.E. Medical Marijuana Strain Review
Type: Hybrid (blend of a Haze and an Afghani from THSeeds, its 70+ day flowering time suggests it is Sativa-dominant)
Appearance: (8/10) This strain presents an array of fall colors, with some orange-brown leaves, a blend of greens and pale orange pistils. Though it only had a small number of amber trichomes, it seems as if the plant was “fading” late, perhaps due to a very thorough flush. Nicely dense but still a clearly Sativa structure.
Aroma: (8/10) The most interesting S.A.G.E. sample we’ve come across, it had more of a sharpness to it than others. It has that distinctive herby smell, but when handled or ground, the Haze really comes out and an almost mentholated overtone tickles the nose.
Taste: (7.5/10) Very much like the smell, it was reminiscent of the herby and spicy Haze varieties, sometimes getting a taste much like burning vegetation smells (but somehow it was pleasant). It expanded readily and also hit the throat a little hard, causing some coughing. But it burned to a nearly pure white ash, so no flushing issues here for sure.
Effects: Immediately cerebral, thoughts were racing but not really going anywhere, it was like watching a spliced-up movie. Definitely a hybrid experience though, as the body felt loose and floppy. After the initial scatter-brained 30 minutes or so, it was still a bit fuzzy mentally but felt functional — it was also clear-eyed, even though they felt highly medicated, making this strain suitable for social and professional interaction. The final impression was a calm Indica-feeling and a lingering energy behind the eyes.
Duration: Long, 2.5 – 3 hours
Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Energetic, mood elevating, relieves minor tension and pain, and was very strong behind the eyes.
Overall: Though it is thought to be a near-50/50 hybrid, this pheno was certainly on the Sativa side, giving an immediate boost of energy and mental stimulation. The body was not forgotten and felt relaxed and loose, especially towards the end of the experience. The taste won’t appeal to everyone, but this was a very pungent smelling and tasting S.A.G.E., more than others we’ve had… give it a try and judge for yourself!
