Sapphire Kush Keeps Titan Flavor While Upping The Ante

While the ubiquitous Cookies may enjoy all the #branding buzz, “old-school” strains like OG Kush — at less than 20 years old, the California staple is now considered a “classic” — are still dominating the market. Lately, the Titan OG from Northern Emeralds has become one of northern California’s top tier OGs. But for the cannabis users for whom Titan’s high THC level and potent sedative effects are just too much, there’s now a buzzier, more uplifting Titan cross.

Sapphire Kush is Titan OG crossed with popular hybrid Pink Panties, Northern Emeralds says. It commands the same top-shelf price as Titan — at The Green Door, it’s $55 an eighth (at least when it’s in stock) — and like Titan, Sapphire Kush is worth the extra money for an OG aficionado looking for a buzzier, bubblier high.

The large, dense, deep-green buds have the same perfect trim and frosty covering of trichomes as the Titan. These buds almost shimmer. A strong, sweet, and funky skunk greets you as soon as you open the bag. There are some oily notes that might get Chemdawg fans going, but instead of an overbearing chemical fuel, there are the classic kush tones of pine and lemon. You can taste the punchy spice from the Panties — a dry hit on a just-rolled joint revealed grapefruit zest — but there’s no doubt the OG is still the boss.

A quick head rush greets you on the first hit before settling down throughout the body, relaxation and tingling creeping down the spine and flowing into the extremities. The warm rush stays in your head, tugging the corners of your mouth into a grin. Prepare for excited thoughts, some of which will move more quickly than you can catch them, but for an uplifting buzz that mellows out just in time to relax, Sapphire Kush is an upper-tier choice that does its Titan parent proud.

Appearance: Dark green nugs, almost bordering on dark purple, a color hard to see underneath all those shiny trichomes and brownish-red calyxes.

Aroma: The pine-lemon classic OG notes are on display, only sweetened with a splash of grapefruit pink lemonade — if that were a thing.

Potency: 21.46 percent THC,

Taste: Strong citrus notes of grapefruit zest on a dry hit. Once lit, an earthy, spicy finish. Very smooth, no coughing.

Effects: Giggly with a hint of mellow onset, winding down into a meditative sedative. High in THC — one hit will be enough to get your mind buzzing for over an hour.

Medical Applicability: Depression, pain, nausea, stress. Not the best choice for insomnia or anxiety. Those looking to quiet their minds may want more OG and less cross.

Overall impression: A top shelf OG cross with some sativa-dominant traits to impress your friends and entice even the grumpiest OG purist. Great for breaking the ice at a party and relaxing just enough while keeping your gift of gab intact.

Grade: 9/10
