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.
When you tear open a pouch of Elektra, you’ll be greeted with the scent of earth and a touch of sweetness. Berkshire labels the sweetness as Orange Blossom, and while our reviewers couldn’t pinpoint it quite that specifically, did notice some subtle citrus hints. In terms of scent, this flower is not as loud as some, but certainly not subdued either – a really pleasant balance. When smoked, that scent doesn’t fully translate and that was kind of surprising, but not in a bad way. We found that the Berkshire Elektra actually had a diesel quality to the smoke and was quite tasty. Now, that diesel quality wasn’t as pronounced as Hemp Hop’s Abacus Diesel, but it was noticeable for sure. As a result, we found Elektra’s smoke to be not too harsh, bu just a touch harsher than Berkshire’s Remedy flower. That touch of harshness could be relating to the cure more than the strain, in any case.
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.
3rd Highest Rated
This wasn’t our first rodeo with the Berkshire brand, having reviewed a couple strains from their line previously. Berkshire CBD has garnered a stout reputation in the community as having consistent and reliably quality hemp flower. Their website is pristine, with product pages featuring introductions,backgrounds, graphs breaking down cannabinoids, and a visual representation of what each strain smells like. In recent times, they’ve grown their selection to include some more popular strains out of Oregon CBD cultivars, along with some exclusive strains, such as OG Kush and Sour Dog. Another great aspect of Berkshire CBD is that they are a farm and actually grow the flower you get on site. You won’t get that with every company in the hemp flower world.
Berkshire CBD’s pricing is fairly standardized across their flower, but we did notice some discounts at higher volumes on this Elektra flower relative to what we found previously with the Berkshire Remedy strain. To sum it up, you can get Elektra for $25 for an 1/8 oz, $40 for a 1/4 oz, $60 for 1/2 and $100 for an ounce. This puts this flower at the lower-middle or lower end of the spectrum. The quality of the flower relative to the price really stands out. At these prices, you’re paying 6.7 cents per milligram of CBD when you buy an 1/8th – lower than Remedy, but still medium-high when it comes to prices-per-milligram in flower. Don’t worry, there’s great news ahead. If you buy an ounce, you cut that by 2/3 to 2.1 cents per milligram. Two thirds! That’s an incredible deal for the quality. If you like the effects we described above, you can’t go wrong with Berkshire Elektra.
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.
The Five Senses (8.0 out of 10)
Berkshire CBD’s website oozes class in a world with some seedy – pun intended – companies. Thoughtful packaging, quality photography, useful product descriptions and intuitive ways to shop for flower are all reasons that Berkshire is worth a look. We previously reviewed their Remedy CBD Flower and were impressed with what we found. Given the wide range of flower that Berkshire has, though, we certainly couldn’t stop there. While Remedy is a strain well known in the medical marijuana world, we switched gears and went towards a strain that is best known from the hemp world – Elektra. As a famous sativa-leaning hemp strain, we were excited to see what Berkshire had in store for us.
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.
