About Starseed Botanicals
Most of us are accustomed to seeing fluffy, smokeable flowers come from the marijuana plant rather than the hemp plant. But at Starseed Botanicals, there are some rare, smokable, high CBD strains on offer.
Not every CBD user is into the idea of smoking cannabis, but there are many who are. Some people want to enjoy the pleasure of smoking a joint without getting a psychedelic hit of THC. And while it’s getting easier and easier to find CBD extracts such as oils, tinctures, and capsules, it’s not that easy to find a good quality, high CBD flower.
So, it seems like Starseed Botanicals acknowledged that gap in the market, and now they are gaining traction as a cannabis breeder and manufacturer of high-quality CBD flowers.
Other than the store itself and the plethora of online reviews, a lot about Starseed Botanicals remains a mystery. There isn’t much information on the history of Starseed Botanicals and unfortunately, their About Us page is empty.
With that being said, it is obvious that Starseed Botanicals is dedicated to the cultivation of high CBD flowers because that’s almost exclusively what they sell. This store is the home of the smokeable hemp flower, all of which is grown on their own farm: another sign of excellence.
Starseed Botanicals also offers an affiliate program for those who want to be involved in the sale of their products.
Interestingly, as a customer, you can also save money on products by paying with Crypto-currency.
It’s pretty obvious that Starseed Botanicals is not concerned with the big marketing hoo-ha. The website is less than impressive and pretty simple overall.
But from the reviews and the general impression of their products, what they are concerned with is being the leaders in great quality CBD hemp flowers.
Aside from the online store, Starseed doesn’t have an actual shop front. However, there are a number of dispensaries dotted around the country that stock and sell Starseed Botanical products. Below is a list of dispensaries in the USA that you can find Starseed flowers and other products in.
- Rejuv Juice, Hurst, TX
- Irie Coast Smoke Shop, Poway, CA
- Outer Limits Smoke Shop, Oceanside, CA
- 420 Smoke Shop, San Diego, CA
- National Ave Smoke And Vape Shop, San Diego, CA
- Smoke Zone, Midway Dr, San Diego, CA
- Smoke Zone, Garnet Ave, San Diego, CA
Crypto Currency Discount
Although Starseed Botanicals lacks something like a “loyalty” program, they do offer discounts for tech-savvy customers who know how to use Bitcoin. And if you’re not one of those customers but still want the discount, they have some pretty good instructions on how to use Bitcoin on the Starseed website.
There’s no limit to how many orders you can redeem your discount on. So as long as you pay with Crytpo-currency (Bitcoin), then you can receive 15 percent off – every time you order that way.
Starseed Botanicals Products
As you’re going to see as we go through the Starseed product list, not every product is a cannabis product. If it is not, it is designed to enhance the cannabis experience and to complement the effects. As it stands, the list of products isn’t enormous.
Starseed Hemp Flower Products
Whenever you buy cannabis flower from Starseed Botanicals, you’re always purchasing hemp flowers. That means that it is legal in all 50 states of the USA (thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill) and that there is less than .3 percent THC.
This is actually the factor that makes it a hemp flower rather than marijuana and what makes it legal across the USA.
It’s also important to remember that every time you purchase a cannabis product from Starseed, you’ll get a third party lab test result with it. So you’ll always have an idea of the cannabinoid profile before you consume it.
The Lifter Private Reserve is Starseed’s top-shelf strain of hemp flower. Yes – it is hemp flower, not marijuana flowers. The flowers are dense and weighty, which makes sense because this strain was bred for its high oil content. It is full of flavor and has a great terpene profile, meaning the aroma is also quite pleasant.
This strain was not grown on Starseed farms, but on a sister farm that adheres to the same strict growing procedures.
It’s all in the name: lifter was grown so it could lift up the user every time they needed it. To get your hands on this strain will cost $24.99 for 2 grams. If you want a more “up close and personal” description of the Lifter Private Reserve, check out this YouTube review of the strain by Water.
The Electra Buddha strain was grown by breeding ACDC and Early Resin Berry. ACDC was at the forefront of strains when CBD first became a huge project of the cannabis industry, so it’s obvious why Starseed was curious to experiment.
Early Resin Berry, on the other hand, has a great terpene profile and buds are full of oils. These qualities, along with the fact that Early Resin Berry flowers earlier than most strains, led Starseed Botanicals to spawn the Electra Buddha.
Two grams of Electra Buddha goes for the same price as the Lifter Private Reserve, at $24.99 for two grams.
For a video review of Electra Buddha, have a look at Chef Hans’ YouTube review and taste test!
The Ganesha Kush strain by Starseed Botanicals is their “indica” spin on hemp flower. Ganesha was the son of Shiva and Parvati, the remover of obstacles and the God of intellect and wisdom.
That’s obviously what Starseed was going for when breeding this full spectrum strain of Kush. The buds look so delicious they could easily be confused for marijuana rather than hemp.
Ganesha Kush is available for $19.99 for 2 grams but there are also bags of “popcorn” buds available for sale for this strain. One ounce of popcorn buds costs just $99.99.
The review for Ganesha Kush is in the same YouTube review of Electra Buddha by Chef Hans.
Sour Space Candy
Sour Space Candy is another private reserve strain by Starseed Botanicals. This strain has a great CBD content and any hemp connoisseur’s palate would dance in delight over the flavors.
Starseed likens the flavor of Sour Space Candy to the aromas and flavors of Sour Diesel, but with sweeter notes to follow. As is the case with all private reserve strains at Starseed, this product sells two grams for $24.99 or $199.99 for an ounce.
Here is another review by Chef Hans on Sour Space Candy strain.
Starseed’s Hemp Tea product is a multi-purpose 5 grams of hemp. It can be steeped and drunk as a tea or it can be blended up into smoothies. It can also be used to smoke or vaporize.
In any case, it’s simply 5 grams of ground hemp flower. If the intention is to drink it as a tea, Starseed even gives the option of packaging it in teabags so that it’s conveniently dosed already. The bag of hemp tea costs $19.99.
Organic CBD Prerolled Cone
The prerolled cone is exactly what the name suggests. Starseeds puts together these 1.2-gram hemp flower prerolls with whatever premium hemp they have available.
The joints are prepared with Raw rolling papers. Each preroll goes for $9.99 making it a pretty good deal for a prerolled joint!
CBD Hemp Kief
Now hemp kief – that’s not something you come by very often. This kief is all made from high CBD hemp flowers, which means it’s not what you would usually imagine when talking about kief. It’s rich with cannabidiol but still just contains less than .3 percent THC.
Kief is usually used to smoke but can be vaporized or used to make edibles and tinctures too. The Kief is for sale from $20 per gram.
Indian Warrior is one of the botanical products that Starseed offers other than hemp. Its scientific name is pedicularis densiflora and is a medicinal herb that can enhance the effects of CBD.
This plant was traditionally used to relax tense muscles and assist in sleep. It can be steeped in boiling water and consumed as a tea or used in herbal smoking blends for its relaxing properties.
Starseed is selling Indian Warrior for $19.99 per 10 grams.
Blue Lotus Flowers
Nymphaea Caerulea or Blue Lotus is a herb once used in sacred rituals by the ancient Egyptians. It was considered to be a visionary plant and symbolized the origin of life. Medicinally, it is used as a sedative, but also contains natural psychoactive alkaloids aporphine and nuciferine.
Traditionally, blue lotus flowers were rolled up into a lotus cigarette and smoked, but this plant has also been used in aromatherapy for centuries.
Starseed swears that this is the best quality blue lotus that they have ever come across, and it starts at $14.99 for 14 grams.
CBD Hemp Oil Capsules
The CBD Hemp Oil capsules are pretty straight forward.
They are consumed just like any other CBD oil capsules, with each containing 25 mg CBD. Capsules make it easier to consume CBD without having to manage the taste and Starseed have added sunflower lecithin to assist with CBD absorption.
The capsules come in packs of 5, 10, 30 and 60, ranging in price from $15 to $59.99.
Kanna Smoker’s Cut
Kanna is a medicinal herb that grows like a ground cover and was often used for its mood-enhancing properties. It can be burned as sacred incense or rolled up and smoked.
It can also be used in a herbal smoking blend with other herbs. It gives a relaxing effect with uplifted mood. Prices start at $14.99 for 14 grams.
Why Starseed Botanicals
Some things about this company are really obvious: they are dedicated providing top quality hemp flower to people who want to use CBD in an alternative way and that they don’t care about blowing bells and whistles all over the place.
With no shop front, they are dedicated almost entirely to cultivation. Plus, they are a rare breed of cannabis growers out there whose main concern is to produce smokeable hemp flower to the general public and not just for wholesale.
Their products are obviously top quality as the reviews suggest and people have not been disappointed with their Starseed herb.
The prices are also reasonable for the quality and the fact that hemp flowers just aren’t that easy to find. It would be well worth trying out Starseed Botanical’s products because if the reviews mean anything, you surely wouldn’t be disappointed.
