Plant physiology: A true hybrid in form. S.A.G.E has a medium internode length, which allows for deep light penetration and good airflow. It borrows its terpene and cannabinoid profile from its narrow-leaf ancestors but gets its large resinous bracts and overall flower structure more from its Afghani side. Not as tall as most narrow-leaf varieties, but taller and more Christmas-tree shaped than most Afghani-based hybrids.
Average yield: Highly dependent on the cultivation technique. Under double-ended (DE) fixtures indoors, it typically yields 1 Kg per 1,000-watt fixture.
Flowering time: Indoor: 63-70 days; Outdoor: ready for harvest in mid-October at 35 degrees latitude
Ideal light intensity: If growing indoors, close proximity to heat from lamps may cause foxtails and new growth late in flowering.
Ideal cultivation environment temperature: 72 degrees to 80 degrees Fahrenheit
Ideal cultivation environment relative humidity: 45%-55%, though due to its resistance to mold and mildew, S.A.G.E. may be grown in more humid conditions.
Water needs: Warmer temperatures will require more frequent watering.
Nutrient needs: S.A.G.E. tends to like a light feeding regimen with an electrical conductivity (EC) of 0.8 to 1.8.
Cannabinoid profile: Type 1 with little to no CBD. Typically tests over 20% THC.
Terpene profile: Terpinolene, ß-caryophyllene and pinene give S.A.G.E. its herbaceous, sagey, sandalwood aroma indicative of true old-school California landrace-based varieties.
Susceptibility to any diseases/conditions: Shows little susceptibility to disease and high resistance to mold and mildew.
