Blue Beast

Smooth and tangy, with tasting notes of citrus and fruit.

Vertically integrated, Anchorage’s Secret Garden Cannabis boasts a dispensary, cultivation, and in-house extraction lab. With eyes on every step of the process, the company’s CO2 cartridges provide a clean, high-quality smoking experience. Suffice to say, it was challenging to settle on a single cart to review. But with a weekend camping trip on the horizon, we figured we’d channel the unbridled energy of Blue Beast. 

According to the team at Secret Garden, the best way to enjoy Blue Beast is with their new Baked Battery. Sporting three unique voltage settings, the battery allows you to heat your carts to your ideal temperature. So naturally, when it came to sampling Blue Beast, we decided to crank up the heat.

Blue Beast’s smoke is smooth and tangy, with tasting notes of citrus and fruit. The cart does leave a somewhat spicy aftertaste, but it was a nice contrast to the sweetness of the inhaled smoke. In addition to the smoke, we found ourselves captivated with the visual purity of the light gold-colored oil, which heated up beautifully.

A formidable sativa strain, Blue Beast’s effects were nearly immediate. Within seconds of our first inhale, we felt a burst of energy course through us. Comparable to a quad shot of espresso, we were perky and focused for several hours before we noticed our high slowly fading away. But one quick puff, and we were riding high all over again.
