Hang in there, Leafly Nation! Mid-March promises a shift in vibe as the days become longer than the nights, signaling the start of Spring. Patches of ground can be seen beneath the thinning snow, and with it comes fresh challenges and new opportunities. One solid ally remains to help you through the transition: the award-winning modern hybrid weed strain MAC 1.
This national best-seller of 2022 is a cross between Miracle and Alien Cookies, bred by Capulator and released in 2015. After 383 reviews on Leafly, MAC 1 scored an average of 4.7 points out of 5, with smokers reporting butter, vanilla, and citrus notes that Capulator describes as “sour black cherry Yoplait.” The THC content is high, ranging from 20%+ to 30%+ in some cases. Consumers report an uplifted, euphoric, and energetic high, with some saying it helps with anxiety and depression.
MAC 1 is available in buds, pre-rolls, dabs, carts, and garden-melting new seeds. Prices range from commodity-cropped $100 ounces in California up to top-shelf extracts like $40 live rosin badder grams in Oregon. The Western US meets its demand for MAC 1, while Florida and Illinois are literally smoking shake. Chicago stores charge $55 for seven grams of MAC trimmings (called “shake”).
MAC 1 has won awards all over the world since 2015, including the Connoisseur Cup, Errl Cup, Oregon Cannabis Grower’s Fair, and California State Fair. In December, a MAC 1 grown in Maine bested the best to win the industry-judged, one-day Ego Clash 2022 invitational.
Capulator sells new seeds directly through his web outlets. You can jump into the MAC movement with Orange Apricot MAC, Orange Cookies x MAC, Granny MAC, MAC & Cheese, and MAC V2. Look for a keeper in seed packs of Miracle Glue, Miracle Burn, or Miracle Cookies.
