Secret Nature Frosted Kush Hemp Flower (9.0)
Secret Nature Sweet Cake Hemp Flower (8.4)
Secret Nature CBD Review: Frosted Kush Flower, Indica, 19.5% CBD, Indoor Grown
Before we even laid a finger on the buy button for some Secret Nature CBD flower, they were sending all the right signals. Top notch photography, premium packaging, easy-to-navigate website, great product descriptions, 100% organic and rave customer reviews. Oh, and their lab results for each hemp strain are front and center. Yes, we heard some grumblings about price around the web, but hey, we’ve found you often get what you pay for. We were more than curious to find out if Secret Nature CBD Frosted Kush could possibly live up to the hype and price point.
Bag Appeal (10 out of 10)
As soon as you pop the top on your hermetically sealed can or preroll tube, Frosted Kush is in your face. As they say, this hemp is loud. This Secret Nature flower smells every bit the real deal. We found ourselves entranced – going back to the container again and again just as we did with Hemp Hop’s Abacus Diesel. As you’ll come to find, we believe smoking hemp from a bowl just tastes like varying shades of campfire. But, vaping this Frosted Kush is super smooth. There is a sweetness and gassy taste to this mellow smoke, which we very much came to enjoy. Definitely not as harsh as other flower we’ve been trying.
User Experience (10 out of 10)
The pictures looked top shelf and our nuggets look like they came straight from the photoshoot. Pristine, frosty buds that only Beleafer’s Remedy x Blossom can compete with and hermetically sealed for freshness with minimal nonsense (stems, etc). Between the smell and the appearance, you could put Secret Nature CBD on a dispensary shelf and no one would know that they were getting a product with less than .3% THC. Moisture content was on point and we love that we could choose to hold onto the sealed can for a bit without worrying about the hemp drying. What more can we say? This company is one of the standard-bearers in the appearance category for craft hemp, in our opinion, and we see it mentioned time and time again in Secret Nature CBD reviews.
Potency (8.6 out of 10)
Clocking in at 19.5% CBD content and 22.4% total cannabinoids, Frosted Kush is on the middle-upper end of the spectrum of CBD potency. Since terpene content also plays a role, we can’t judge the potency on CBD alone. Not the highest, but it’s well up there. On the THC front, Secret Nature Frosted Kush comes in at .048%. That’s nowhere near the legal limit of .3%, so Secret Nature is not pushing the boundaries trying to max out THC content, which can be good or bad depending on your perspective. The flower does outpunch it’s potency weight class with nearly 1% myrcene content (find a couch to melt into) and .65% beta-caryophyllene.
Effect (9.5 out of 10)
Well, this Secret Nature CBD review climbed to the top of the pile quickly. Welcome to cloud 9. The effect of Secret Nature’s Frosted Kush is hard to capture in words. It is actually a little slower than most to kick in, but once it does, wow is it pleasant. The numbing sensation starts as a light effect throughout the body, along the lines of Boston Hempire’s Hempress. We had an ever-so-slight head buzz, but as we said before, the THC content is tame. For those of you that smoke regularly, the head effect is between a Remedy and an ACDC for us. After our 2nd round of vaping, though, a nice numbing sensation really kicked in at the base of the neck, we felt a heaviness behind the eyes, the overall cooling sensation deepened and our body felt like it was melting into the sheets right before bed. The next day, we woke up feeling absolutely great. Well played, Secret Nature.
Price (6.9 out of 10)
We initially scored Secret Nature CBD at a 6.5 on pricing. At $40 for an 1/8 oz, $75 for a 1/4 oz, $145 for 1/2 and $250 for an ounce, this flower is priced at the ultra-premium end of hemp flowers. But, the company was kind enough to offer CBDtop10 readers 10% off with the Secret Nature coupon “CBDtop10″ so we were comfortable bumping their score slightly. The flower is still expensive, but the discount softens the wallet punch slightly. To put their standard pricing in perspective, our roots are in the CBD oil world. Buying an 1/8th at $40 means you’re getting CBD at $.059 (5.9 cents) per milligram. That would be on the low end of price-per-milligram with CBD oil and you could get it down to 4.5 cents per milligram buying an ounce. But, most people are comparing to other flower companies so we’re going to do the same. Yes, you get flower for much cheaper elsewhere. Do they stack up to Secret Nature’s quality? Not many.
2nd Highest Rated
Secret Nature CBD Review: Sweet Cake Flower, Indica, 18.6% CBD, Indoor Grown
We thought Secret Nature’s website sent all the right signals before we purchased our first product from them and we were not disappointed during our first Secret Nature CBD review of Frosted Kush. The company has incredibly detailed photography, modern packaging, an easy-to-use website, in-depth product descriptions, is all organic and maintains stellar reviews. And, everything you might want to know about the product you’re about to ingest appears prominently on the product’s Certificate of Analysis. The team over at Secret Nature CBD charges a premium price for sure. But, when the Frosted Kush strain lived up to expectations, we were more than happy to pay up to get our hands on the Sweet Cake strain.
The Five Senses (8.5 out of 10)
When we popped the top off of our tin of this strain, we were expecting the smell of the Sweet Cake to jump through the room like Secret Nature’s Frosted Kush. That didn’t happen, which can either be a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you look at it. This CBD flower is more muted, but plenty pleasant on the nose. The Sweet Cake strain has a sweet and earthy smell about it. Think of this strain as the humble brother of Frosted Kush – directionally similar effects in a more conspicuous package. When we lit up the preroll, the smoke maintained the sweetness we smelled out of the gates. Very tasty! Easy, mellow and toasty smoke throughout. No harshness to be found, which is a great quality.
Curb Appeal (10 out of 10)
Once again, the pictures online looked top shelf and our nuggets didn’t disappoint. Orange trichomes popping out everywhere between contrasting dark and bright green flower. Quality size and frosty across the board. Just like our Secret Nature review of Frosted Kush, you could put this on a dispensary shelf and no one would know that they were getting a product with less than .3% THC. The cure on the nuggets was spot on and, if we weren’t in such a hurry to give it a try, we love the fact that we could have held onto this strain for some time in it’s hermetically sealed can. What more do you need? Secret Nature CBD keeps growing products to benchmark against.
Potency (8.0 out of 10)
Sweet Cake clocks in at 18.6% CBD content and 21.1% total cannabinoids, which puts this strain on the middle-upper end of the spectrum of CBD potency. Don’t judge hemp flower on CBD alone, though, as those terpenes are going to play a role in the effect. When it comes to THC, Secret Nature’s Sweet Cake comes in at .06%. That’s not pushing anywhere near the legal limit of .3%. Depending on what you’re looking for, that might be viewed as a good thing or a bad thing. We will refrain from making that call for you. Once again, Secret Nature delivers a punch on terpene content, though. With over 1% myrcene content, it puts itself in good company with WNC’s BoAx. Combined with .34% beta-caryophyllene, we figured this strain was going to send us exactly where we wanted to be – sinking into the couch for a mellow evening.
Effect (9.5 out of 10)
I wasn’t sure how long it would take to find another CBD flower to give Frosted Kush a run for it’s money when it came to effect. Apparently, not very long. Sweet Cake stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. In some ways, we liked it better. In others, Frosted Kush still reigns supreme. What did we like? Well, this one is right up there in terms of overall numbing and relaxation. We would say it’s more evenly distributed between the head and body. The most interesting part was that our reviewers couldn’t stop smiling as the world slowed down for few minutes. Sweet Cake delivered something in terms of euphoria that Frosted Kush didn’t and we – literally – could not have been happier. Beyond that, this strain is definitely a back cracker and your head will likely feel a little heavy and sedated. Great strain overall. Great strain to wind down before bed. We woke up feeling amazing in the morning – peaceful and relaxed.
Price (6.9 out of 10)
As we highlighted in our Secret Nature CBD review of Frosted Kush, their flower will run $40 for an 1/8 oz, $75 for a 1/4 oz, $145 for 1/2 and $250 for an ounce. This is premium pricing and some might say ultra-premium pricing. Again, putting that in perspective, we can’t help but compare prices to the CBD oil world. When you buy an 1/8th at $40, you’re getting CBD at $.059 (5.9 cents) per milligram. Not bad at all in the CBD oil world, in fact, that would be on the low end of price-per-milligram in CBD oil terms. The more you buy, the more you save, too. Buying an ounce will drop the per-milligram price to 4.5 cents. We know, most people are comparing to other flower companies though. If that’s a concern, yes, you can get 1/8s for $10-$20 cheaper elsewhere. As we expand our flower reviews, we’ll see if those brands stack up on the quality front. In the meantime, our readers can score 10% off with our exclusive Secret Nature coupon “CBDtop10“. Hopefully, that makes it slightly easier on the wallet for some of you to stock up.
