Sapphire OG is the result of an OG (Florida cut) x OG (Fc) x (OG (Fc)/Afghan) cross which displays a gorgeous colour palette as well as depth and complexity of aromas. Humboldt Seeds Organization state that this is an exclusive OG strain that bears little comparison with the majority og OG-derived strains on the market.
Sapphire OG is 85% indica and its vigorous vegetative growth means a fast switch to flowering during which this plant will double in size. This is a great plant for SCROG systems, its thin fan leaves encouraging light penetration for an even bud development so that even the interior ones have good density and resin content.
Indoors Sapphire OG finishes in 57 - 63 days and produces yields of 350 - 500 gr/m2; outdoors it will really take off and can attain a height in excess of 5 meters in the hands of skillful gardeners and given good conditions. Here each plant has a potential yield of between 1 and 4 kilos of dried buds from northern hemisphere harvests at the end of September or early October. Support is strongly recommended for the exceptional weight of buds in the final 4 - 6 weeks.
Aromas of petrol, pine and chocolate predominate with secondary notes of citrus with floral undertones. The levels of THC produced by Sapphire OG falls in the range 18% - 24%. The effect is strong; cerebral to begin followed by a powerful body effect. Excellent for relaxing at the day's end and recommended therapeutically as an appetite stimulant and for the relief of pain.

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.
