Most Kushage we’ve tried has a rather sweet smell to it, taking more after certain phenotypes of the S.A.G.E. than the OG Kush. Sweet, herby, with a hint of citrus.
The Haze background of the S.A.G.E. comes through as the dominant effect, uplifting mood and stimulating the mind. This is a great thinking strain, but not as great of a “doing” strain, as the mind can get lost on its travels easily. The OG Kush side of the equation provides relaxing body waves and mental clarity later on in the duration once the initial potency passes. This is a great daytime creative type of strain, though the comedown can be very draining and induce sleep. It’s recommended for energy, mood elevation, body relaxation, and for sleep as it fades away.
Kushage tends to grow into a sort of triangle shape, thinning out at the top as it progresses and forming an extremely dense and strong central cola if untopped. It’s advisable to prune the lowest side branches to encourage upper growth. The plant will stretch up to 4-5 times in flowering when started at 1′ or less, so allow plenty of headroom or train it heavily if the grow area is small.
