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’ 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 hemp flower 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. 

What Does Special Sauce Smell Like? 

Special Sauce has a sweet vanilla odor with hints of caramelized sugar. The real pleasure of Special Sauce is the taste— earthy, with subtle savory and fruity notes.

Sunset Lake CBD’s Special Sauce Reviews

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.

My order arrived today...never tried anything like this before,,,very pleased and surprised.....I have now become a believer and will monthly subscribe going forward after my initial order...thanks guys!!

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.

These give just the mild buzz and no anxiety I had always wanted from regular cannabis. On top of that, I grabbed a similar product from a local shop and the quality difference was day and night. Not only was that $10 for just one joint, it had a terrible taste, too. You could tell the flower was inferior to Sunset Lake from a mile away. Sunset Lake will be my go-to from now on, no question. Left is Best!

Im really sensitive to marijuana & delta9. Tried these out as i also like cbd gummies for sleep. These blunts give you like a melt ur worries away buzz. Its sort of like the feeling you get when youre really tired and chilly and then someone wraps u in a nice blanket. You feel like "finally." Calming but not to the point where youll fall straight to sleep- but that wouldnt be a problem either if its ur desire. Basically its a perfectly balanced feeling of peace. Ordering again.

Special Sauce Terpene Profile 

Special Sauce is a myrcene-dominant cultivar, accounting for about half of the terpene weight in this year’s testing sample. The second and third most common terpenes are beta-caryophyllene and humulene, respectively. 

When myrcene is taken with CBD, it’s thought to contribute to the “couch lock” effect, leading many to believe that myrcene may have some sedative effects. Myrcene is also commonly found in mangos and thyme. 

Beta-caryophyllene is an interesting terpene as it’s the only terpene to also interact with your endocannabinoid system and provide anti-inflammatory effects. This terpene helps add a bit of spice to Special Sauce’s profile as it’s also found in black pepper and cinnamon. 

Formerly known as alpha-caryophyllene, humulene was renamed after Humulus lupulus, also known as the hops plant (also part of the Cannabaceae family just like cannabis). Humulene has, in some controlled settings, been shown to exhibit antifungal and antibacterial properties. Humulene is responsible for Special Sauce’s earthy undertones as it can also be found in hops and wood.  

Growing Information

We germinated our Cherry Abacus hemp flower in our greenhouses up in Vermont’s Champlain Islands. Once they were big enough to transplant, we moved the Special Seedlings into the field sandwiched between all of the other Oregon cultivars. 

We did 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. We only used organic fertilizer that we secured from our main farm in Alburgh Vermont.
