Remedy Hemp Flower, 10.05% CBD, .14% THC
Five Senses: 8.0
Curb Appeal: 8.5
When you start poking around the CBD Flower world, it doesn't take you long to come across Berkshire CBD. Based on what we can see online about the vibe around this brand, Berkshire is a rising star in the CBD world. That makes sense, as the website oozes class and professionalism in a world with some seedy - pun intended - companies. Thoughtful packaging, quality photography, good product descriptions and intuitive ways to shop for flower are all pluses in our book. Boasting a few noticeable strain names, such as Remedy - the subject of this review - we were excited to rip open our first pouch of this seemingly top tier flower.
The Five Senses (8.0 out of 10)
The Remedy strain isn't going to punch you in the nose with its smell in the way a kush strain might. But, that's OK. Upon opening our bag of Remedy, we were greeted with a subtle, sweet smell of citrus and earth. That smell is amplified when it hits the grinder and we found it quite pleasant overall. Putting the flower through our vaporizer provided a mellow, smooth smoke - no harshness here. That's important because, if you're experimenting with CBD, you are going to come across some that are hard to take down. Even when vaporized, you can still taste the citrus in this flower. As we made our way through our session, we were very happy with this toasty, citrus-y blend.
Curb Appeal (8.5 out of 10)
Our Remedy nuggets showed up exactly as anticipated, looking fairly identical to the online pictures. The only knock here is that the pouch packaging had flattened the product a bit. That aside, the buds still smoked the same and were layered with orange trichomes against the backdrop of various shades of green - exactly what you'd hope for. Our Remedy pouch was not quite as frosty as some flowers, but overall has a nice coating of crystals. The standout aspect of this flower is the moisture content. We've tried a lot of dry flower and this was not one of them. Berkshire CBD has one of the best, if not the best, cures we've seen. Consistent moisture content provide a smooth, mellow smoke as we mentioned. Combined with the taste, this was a really nice all around flower to consume.
Potency (7.0 out of 10)
Clocking in at 10.05% CBD content, this is not the strongest flower on the block and comes in at the lower end of CBD potency. We don't have a problem with that. We know that not all of our readers are looking to have their socks knocked off when they consume CBD. On the THC front, the Berkshire Remedy came in at .14% delta-9. Not unexpectedly, Berkshire is not looking to push the limits of the .3% legal limit. This is higher than some of the flower products we've reviewed, but not the highest we have reviewed. On the terpene front, this flower has almost equal parts myrcene and beta-caryophyllene as it's top two terpene readings (both around the .5% mark), so we knew we were in for a relaxed, potentially sedated, evening.
Effect (8.0 out of 10)
When you try the Berkshire Remedy strain, you quickly realize how consuming CBD flower can become a regular event. We had an almost instant chilling effect move from our hands to our head and then down to our feet. Super relaxing. What was apparent throughout was that, no matter how much we vaped, we weren't going to get a head effect. You may see that as a good thing or a bad thing, but for us, it really opened up different times of the day when we could use CBD flower that we typically wouldn't. Just like a CBD oil, we gained confidence that this flower is not going to significantly alter head clarity. Overall, the Remedy flower from Berkshire CBD is a pleasant, mild experience that is sure to instill calm and bring you back for more.
Price (9.0 out of 10)
At $25 for an 1/8 oz, $40 for a 1/4 oz, $65 for 1/2 and $110 for an ounce, this flower is priced at the lower-middle or lower end of the spectrum. Considering the quality of the flower relative to the price, that is an incredible deal. This is by far the best value (price v. quality) we've seen thus far. Now, that said, because it is lower on the CBD potency scale, even though the pricing is low on a quantity basis, you're still paying 7.1 cents per milligram of CBD when you buy an 1/8th. That is actually pretty high when it comes prices-per-milligram in flower. The good news? If you buy an ounce, you cut that almost in half to 3.9 cents per milligram. Almost half! That's a great deal. We've seen some ounces go for $250! If this is the right level of effect for you, you can't go wrong with Berkshire CBD pricing for the quality.
