Strain Spotlight: Mac 1

The MAC 1 strain is an Indica-leaning hybrid that has taken the cannabis world by storm. It is a tantalizing cross between Alien Cookies x Colombian x Starfighter originally from a clone cut created by Dark Heart Nursery in San Leandro, California.

MAC 1 is known for its strong, relaxing, and sedating effects. Consumers often report feeling a euphoric and uplifting high, followed by a body buzz and couch-lock. It is considered a good strain for pain relief, stress, and insomnia. MAC 1 typically tests between 20-28% THC, making it a potent strain.

MAC 1 has a unique aroma, with notes of earthy, pungent, and spicy. The flavor profile is similarly complex, with a mixture of sweet and sour, with hints of spices and coffee.

The terpene profile of MAC 1 includes high levels of Caryophyllene, Limonene, and Myrcene, which contribute to its relaxing effects, and spicy and sour flavors.

For a long time, MAC 1 was an extremely sought-after but exclusive strain, predominantly available exclusively in West Coast dispensaries. This was largely due to the strain’s origins as a clone only strain, a very unique strain in that regard, however, you can now find MAC 1 weed seeds for sale online from reputable seed banks. This has made the strain far easier to obtain for those living across the USA, not merely California and the West Coast, as it can be grown at home.

MAC 1 is considered a relatively easy plant to grow and is known for its resinous buds, making it a good option for extract artists. It is a relatively short and bushy plant with a flowering time of around 8-9 weeks. However, it is important to note that growing cannabis remains illegal in many places and it is important to check the legality of growing in your jurisdiction before starting a grow.

Overall, MAC 1 is a potent and flavorful hybrid strain, known for its relaxing and sedating effects and its unique aroma and flavor profile.
