SAGE Wax (The Herbal Cure)Review

Appearance

This wax had a gorgeous bright golden yellow coloration and was composed mainly of small chunks and flakes rather than a cohesive mass.  To the naked eye, this was one of the prettier wax samples we’ve seen color-wise, but when we zoomed in on it with the camera and microscope, we found a large amount of small blue hairs which appeared to be from some sort of fabric — it was seen throughout the sample and we are unclear why.  Disregarding that, this was a absolutely great-looking sample, though we didn’t like the texture quite as much as some other waxes because it was somewhat difficult to stick to a dabber (we had to scoop it most of the time).

Flavor

This extract had an oddly culinary flavor, which one reviewer pegged as “nori”, the seaweed that’s wrapped around sushi rolls.  Other reviewers noted how smooth the extract was overall, and that it left a herby, slightly mentholated aftertaste hanging in the mouth.  Overall this one wasn’t incredibly pungent, but it was unique and did bring to mind the herby/Hazy S.A.G.E. which went into it.  The smoke was rather thin and easy on the throat, feeling almost like a hit a quarter o the size — this is a good extract for those who don’t want to worry about coughing much.

Euphoria

(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Strong ocular attention (possibly glaucoma benefits), mood stabilization, anti-anxiety properties, and moderate appetite stimulation

Overall

This extract had beautiful color and texture, with a uniformity in both regards that we rarely see in BHO.  We weren’t blown away by the flavor, but the smoking experience was so smooth and enjoyable that the light flavor and nearly non-existent aroma didn’t stick out as flaws.  It appeared to have been purged very well and we saw no signs of residual solvent — it was very clean and pure-feeling on the throat.  The effects were surprisingly sedate for such a Sativa-dominant strain, and even for BHO in general.  Still, it was enjoyable and allowed us to function during the day while serving to even the mood and keep things flowing on an even keel.
