What’s in a Strain: SAGE

With Thanksgiving a day away we wanted to highlight one more Autumn inspired strain. Let’s learn about SAGE.

 

SAGE stands for “Sativa Afghani Genetic Equilibrium” and as the name implies, this plant provides the best of both worlds. This strain is somewhat of a balancing act between an uplifting, energetic mind-racer and a deep, sedating couchlock. With a profound herbal sage scent, woodsy taste, and a hint of fruit, SAGE is the perfect Thanksgiving strain that pairs well with all five pounds of food on your plate. 

 

The Chemistry: SAGE

 

SAGE is an earthy green to brown colored flower, filled with tiny amber-colored trichomes. The top terpenes in SAGE, provided by the strains’ imprint on Connect, consist of Terpinolene, Limonene, Myrcene, and Beta-Caryophyllene. SAGE has an average amount of THC and plenty of CBG (Cannabigerol) to go around. This is a great strain for the upcoming holiday; somehow providing a boost of energy while also relieving body tension and mental stress*. Perfect for counteracting tryptophan, post-feast sedation, and unwinding from the lively conversation with relatives.
