Here's the complex story MAC 1 strain origins.
a.k.a. Miracle Alien Cookies X1
Miracle Alien Cookies (MAC) = Alien Cookies X (Columbian X Starfighter)
On Aeriz’ website, they describe their aeroponic growing method as follows: “In aeroponics, a plant is suspended in the air without the use of dirt or other grow mediums. Below the plant’s root zone lies a state-of-the-art nutrient delivery system. Oxygen-rich, nutrient-infused water is misted directly into each plant’s root zone on a precisely timed schedule.”

Cannabinoids Profile: THCa 28.39%; THC 0.56%; CBDa 0%; CBD 0% (LK Pure Labs)
TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Phenotype Profile: Extreme density, light greens hidden by a thick coating of trichomes. Interestingly, when you grind it, the bud grinds without much resistance despite its density.
Bud Density: 5 [1 Light – 5 Max Density]
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample so I will not be providing specific terpene levels for this product. (LK Pure Labs)
In their intact state, these buds did not give off a lot of aroma. I detected a sweet herbal aroma. Once ground, I smelled fuel up front on a light pine foundation with sweet notes. When smoked, I tasted a dank, musky fuel with sour/tart on the exhale that clings to the palate. I enjoyed these native cannabis flavors a lot.
Flavor Intensity: 2 [1 Low, 2 Moderate, 3 High]
TIPS: Because of the density of this bud and how it’s been cured, it may retain its freshness longer than is typical when stored long term. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: I have never tried the MAC flower, but I did review another cultivator's MAC shatter recently, and while it was a high quality product, the effects were a little underwhelming and confusing for me. In contrast, I found the MAC 1 effects to be a much more defined and potent experience. This one kicked in fast as a moderate cerebral high, which became expansive and increasingly uplifted. This is a unique, euphoric high that climbs and climbs, especially at moderate and high doses. For me, this one leaned to the heady side, but there was a competing body element that crept in as the effects progressed. A potent, floating high.
Duration of Effects: 2+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with fatigue and focus. May also help with mood, depression, stress, creative energy, low to moderate pain (and more)
An interesting, top shelf version of this rare Mac relative.
