Carl Sagan is a slightly sativa dominant hybrid that was created by crossing Pre-98 Bubba Kush with Blue Moon Rocks. Its name may suggest that it will send out straight into outer space, however, yeah the strain that was named after the Professor of Astronomy and Space Sciences in Cornell University is actually a more mellow and super balanced hybrid strain.

This strain has an especially exotic aroma that some have said will remind them of guava and passion fruit and other tropical goodies. Carl Sagan creates a body buzz that is balanced and not overpowering as its name would suggest, leaving you in a mellow and happy high, surrounded by good vibes.

        1. Love Carl Sagan and its stickiness. Just finished curing the first harvest from 6 Carl Sagan clones (4x4x7ft Core 190w scrog 9weeks flower)the yield was on low side for the amount dure to lanky stalks that stretched to quickly because the light was insuffiecient for this sun worshipping strain. The second grow in now in flower week 5 but it is 3 carl sagan clones in a 4x2x6ft with 2 HLG 100w each. So they have 10 more watts this second grow and they are so impressive. There are rubarb colored stripes on the more mature top stems and the flowers are growing in tridents on some tops. Stalks are much much stronger this grow and I am confident these 3 will outshine in every way. It is great for stress and PTSD. It is arousing and also very soothing. I make myself Master Wu Tincs with it since i am asthmatic. It taste so so so much like it smells that I don’t want to put it in edibles but a little dropperful of a Carl Sagan Master Wu tinc in a Topo Chico is like my morning coffee. Also great for inflammitory pain like RA than it is with nerve pain like sciatica. But it does help the nerve pain too. But I must say that the smell is its biggest downfall from my perspective. My mate doesn’t smell it as well but every time I burped a Mason jar the smell was just DANKETY DANK Dank. You know….skunky. Lol. I hope this info helps others feel more comfortable growing Carl Sagan because it is a fun one.

        2. One of the best strains I’ve grown the profile is unique and the flavor is outstanding fruity pungent nugs very good plant to top early in the season of vegetation outstanding results of growth in the vegetation and in the flower I would say 18 Oz yield
