Mango Sapphire is a cross of an OG x Afghan crossed with an elite clone of Bubba's Gift. It is a masterpiece of short flowering period, flavour, size, pest & disease resistance, colour and pungency. It is an 85% indica cannabis strain.
The very indica-dominant genetics of Mango Sapphire result in a plant with thick, strong stems and typically large, broad fan leaves. It grows very well indoors and also outdoors in warm, dry temperate as well as Mediterranean climates. At higher latitudes where the climate is less dependable it can be grown with the added protection of a greenhouse. Heavy bud development requires support in the form of trellising or something similar. Fairly low levels of nutrients are needed for good growth.
The buds are starting to become quite large and dense in the 5th week of flowering and fully mature buds are ready to harvest in around 7 weeks. Indoor yields are in the region of 350 - 500 gr/m2. Outdoor plants grow to a height of 2 - 3 meters with yields between 1 and 2 kilos dried weight per plant with northern hemisphere harvests being in late September through to mid October.
As is suggested by its name there is quite a strong mango flavour and this is complemented by other tropical fruit flavours as well as coconut. A sharp, fuel-like flavour on the finish derives from the OG component. THC production is very high and is measured at 21 - 23% with low CBD at 0.1%. Strongly cerebral in effect followed by a nice, relaxing body high which makes Mango Sapphire ideal for pain relief as well as appetite stimulation.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
