Editor’s note: Overall, we like Cascadia Blooms Elektra flowers. Here are our top recommended vendors to buy hemp flowers online:-
Genetics – (ACDC x ERB) ACDC is a renowned CBD hemp strain and the backbone of many CBD crosses due to high oil content and strong terpenes. Early Resin Berry has a terpene profile with a complex sweet, citrus-berry smell. The pairing of these two strains produced, “Elektra”. Elektra hemp tops are oil-rich, excellent for both infusions and extractions. Elektra is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with a smooth calming effect and thus is a good “nighttime” strain. Elektra is a cross between two industry titans; ACDC and Early Resin Berry. ACDC is considered by many to be the backbone of the flourishing US CBD marketplace, leading the industry forward in its early days with an extremely high CBD content and reassuringly low THC content.
If the CBD kick comes from the ACDC, then Elektra owes its fantastic flavors to Early Resin Berry. ERB has a terpene profile with a complex sweet, citrus-berry smell, and these terpenes have definitely made themselves known in Elektra.
The combination of two such high-quality CBD flowers gave Elektra a head-start in life, but don’t think that being born to such amazing parents has made it complacent. Elektra is an absolute pleasure in its own right, garnering hundreds of favorable reviews. As one customer puts it: “Loved it. Currently my favorite strain. Now it was my first from Cascadia but I have purchased others from local distributors. Those didn’t compare.
How does it work?
Elektra is a Sativa dominant strain, meaning you could be forgiven for thinking that this is an exclusively day-time CBD flower. While it does work well during the day, a large amount of CBD smokers find this gorgeous bud works best in the evening. It’s high CBD content works well to hell with aches and pains, and is used regularly as a CBD supplement for restful sleep.
Smoking or vaping CBD increases its potential to be absorbed by your body and allows the effects to come on much faster than CBD oils or topicals. Another benefit of Elektra is that as a CBD flower, it contains full-spectrum CBD. This means that along with an amazing flavor and taste, Elektra provides the full range of beneficial cannabinoids available in hemp. These cannabinoids work in synergy, potentially boosting the effectiveness of your CBD with what is known as the Entourage Effect.
Elektra is a high CBD Sativa strain that performs well, comes on fast, and harnesses all the benefits associated with full-spectrum CBD. If you’re looking for fast, effective relief, Elektra should be on your wish-list.
How To Take
Like many of our organically grown CBD strains, Elektra is a multi-functional flower. Its fresh, sweet flavors make it the number one choice for many customers, whether they smoke or vape their CBD. While both methods are pretty standard for CBD smokers, it’s always pleasing to see a CBD flower, like Elektra, that can appeal to both camps in equal measure.
Elektra’s high oil content also works in its favor- when rolled in a blunt it holds its shape well, without crumbling to dust. The oily resin it excretes also makes Elektra ideal for cannabutter and infusions- check out our cannabutter recipe for more information.
Our Elektra came out looking great this year despite weather challenges and it proved resilient. We’re happy to offer it to you here in 1-ounce bags which contain mostly our big hemp tops along with some mediums and smalls to fill in the gaps. We hope you enjoy it!
