If you like a little more depth and sourness to your Special Sauce, then you're going to love Sour Special Sauce.
It's an Indica-dominant CBD strain that is grown on several Oregon farms and seems to be gaining in popularity across the US hemp industry.
Sour Special Sauce Hemp Flower Review
Sour variants of popular strains are all the rage right now. From Sour Lifter to Super Sour Space Candy, they sate the hunger that users have for tongue-twistingly sour strains.
Sour Special Sauce is another strain to add to that list and while it doesn't have the intensity of some of the aforementioned strains, it is definitely a sour take on a classic strain.
Sour Special Sauce was created by breeding Special Sauce with Gorilla Glue 4, creating something that delivers a punch of sharp, astringent, and sour flavors along with some intense Indica effects.
Cannabinoid and Terpene Content
The cannabinoid content of Sour Special Sauce is roughly 20% with 16-17% CBD.
The terpene profile doesn't look all that unique, with heavy concentrations of Myrcene (fruity, herby) and Caryophyllene (spicy), but it certainly makes for some exceptional aromas.
Sour Special Sauce Aroma and Flavors
Something about the name “Special Sauce” made us think of hot sauce, peppery dips, and thick marinades.
We were surprised, therefore, when we first tired Special Sauce and found something much more citrusy than we had initially expected.
Sour Special Sauce maintains the sharp flavors of its parent strain and adds some spice and earth into the mix.
It's hard to describe, but if you combine the eye-popping sharpness of grapefruit juice with the earthiness of over-steeped tea and a touch of sweet and dry cranberry juice, you'll get pretty close.
Benefits of Sour Special Sauce
Everyone responds differently to CBD hemp flowers, but the majority will feel a strong couch-lock sedation from Sour Special Sauce.
It's still low-THC hemp, so it's not going to knock you out like marijuana would, but you will definitely notice a certain heaviness in both your body and mind.
It's soothing, pain-relieving, and will help you to deal with the stresses, anxieties, and strains of the day. It's one of those strains that you should save for later in the day, preferably when you're alone and need some chill-out time.
The best way to enjoy Sour Special Sauce is to smoke a little on an evening when you need to calm down following a hectic day.
Put on a good movie, grab some wings or pizza (with plenty of actual special sauce), and let your troubles fade away. It should boost your appetite and calm your mind enough to create a totally relaxed feast for the body and mind.
We all need a little alone time every now and then and Sour Special Sauce is perfect for that.
