Special Sauce Bud Macro

Special Sauce Hemp Flower

Special Sauce hemp flower is a Sativa-dominant strain that will impress anyone with its sweet, vanilla aroma. Great for any time use, Special Sauce hemp flower is just as its name suggests— special.

Special Sauce Genetics

Special Sauce (Original Strain) x Early Resin Berry (ERB) | Oregon CBD Seeds

Like many CBD hemp flower strains, Special Sauce hemp flower can trace its roots back to some very high-yielding marijuana strains. Over time, geneticists have bred the THC out of the parent strains and bred CBD in. This technique has created bigger, high-CBD buds that look, smell, and smoke like traditional THC cannabis. 

What Strain is Special Sauce?

Special Sauce is Oregon CBD Seeds’s flagship strain. It’s a unique bud that produces an otherworldly smell and taste profile. Be on the lookout for any Special Sauce that claims to be from any breeder other than Oregon CBD Seeds— they’ve never shared its proprietary genetics. 

Is Special Sauce an Indica or Sativa?

Special Sauce hemp flower is a Sativa-dominant hybrid cross. That doesn’t mean that Special Sauce hemp flower should be considered a daytime strain only though. Special Sauce is a do-it-all strain and will work for you any time. 

Does Special Sauce Get You High?

Smoking Sunset Lake CBD’s Special Sauce hemp flower will not make you feel high or intoxicated. 

To be considered hemp flower and not marijuana, smokable hemp must contain less than 0.3% d9-THC by dry weight. Instead of feeling high, as you would with traditional marijuana, you might feel much more relaxed or chilled when you smoke Special Sauce. 

What is Special Sauce Good For? 

Special Sauce hemp flower is good for any time use. Special Sauce has been known to help give its users peace of mind and full-body relaxation.

Special Sauce: Aroma and Taste

Special Sauce hemp flower has a pleasant sweet vanilla aroma. The real pleasure is in its taste. A hit of Special Sauce starts out earthy, then savory, and finishes on sweet fruity notes.

Growing Information

We germinated our Special Sauce hemp flower in our new greenhouses up in Vermont’s Champlain Islands. Once they were big enough to transplant, we moved the Special Sauce seedlings to their field rows. 

We do not use any pesticides at any point during germination, growing, flowering or harvesting. Instead, with guidance from the University of Vermont extension school, we used an integrated pest management system and employed the use of Trichogramma parasitic wasps, assassin bugs, and ladybugs to control unwanted pests. 

Special Sauce Hand-Trimmed Flower or Smalls?

There isn’t much difference between our jars of hand-trimmed Special Sauce hemp flower and our pouches of Special Sauce smalls. 

The buds that make it into our hand-trimmed jars are bigger and we take more care to ensure that every jar has shelf appeal. The Special Sauce smalls are sorted, machine-trimmed buds that are leftover and broken off during the hand-trimming process.

Sunset Lake CBD’s Special Sauce Reviews

VinkyLu | Extra Special Sauce

My husband and I have tried many of the flowers, kiefs and smalls and Hawaiian Haze and Lifter are particular faves. Cherry is perfect before bedtime but nothing is as wonderful as this Special Sauce. It’s the tallest flower in the crop. We appreciate the Sunset Lake family and the Majority Report podcast Gang for introducing us to CeBeDe therapy.

Temeka E | My nighttime favorite

I love this particular strain because it’s great at night before sleep. I’ve also used it during the day when I knew that I wanted to take a nap. This is a great product for anyone that has trouble sleeping at night.
