MAC strain is an acronym for Miracle Alien Cookies or Miracle Cookies, which is a hybrid cannabis created by Capulator. MAC is the child strain of Alien Cookies, Columbian, and Starfighter. It contains a moderate THC content of 20-22%, a CBG content of 1%, and a very low CBD content of 0.15-0.43%. This makes it a little unsuitable for beginners who are not yet used to consuming marijuana strains with a higher-than-average THC content. This weed has a citrusy flavor because of the presence of Limonene as the prominent terpene. The best time to smoke some MAC weed would be in the daytime when some energy is needed.

Miracle Alien Cookies Strain Benefits Effects

Like similar weeds that are hybrid, Miracle Cookies provides effects of both relaxation and positivity. Tokers feel relaxed, happy, euphoric, and even creative. That's why people say this strain is good for arts and crafts. It can have some side effects, too, though, like dry mouth, dry eyes, dizziness, and headache, so consume in amounts that you can easily handle. What's more interesting with this strain is that usually each user has their own individual experience.

Because of its relaxing and calming effects, MAC is used by medical marijuana patients suffering from issues like anxiety, stress, and depression. It can also help people who have a lack of appetite by making them hungry. And since it relaxes the body as well as the mind, it can help treat chronic pain as well.

This strain is quite popular, so it won't be difficult to find it in the dispensary.

Taste and Smell of MAC 1 Weed Strain

Miracle Alien Cookies strain has a very citrusy aroma thanks to Limonene as the dominant terpene. Its citrusy notes are accompanied by earthy tones generated by Terpinolene and Pinene. As for the taste, there is a strong presence of orange with some earthy notes. The high THC levels in the buds make the oil or wax created by them suitable for use in edibles, so you can add some MAC strain in your brownies and muffins too.

Information for Growers

The seeds for this plant are not commercially available, so growing these buds can be tricky. However, if you do manage to get the seeds, the plant can produce the buds in 45-52 days which is a much shorter time than other cannabis cultivars take. The yield can be higher than average, and the plant grows quite tall, whether indoors or outdoors.

Interesting fact about this strain

MAC named the most popular strain in 2020 by Alex Pasternack, EVP of Binske. Read more it in Grower Stories #4

MAC Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19 - 21.5% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.16 - 0.41% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.26 - 0.88% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.44 - 1.23% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.04 - 0.22% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.16 - 0.77% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

Growing some now and they are a bit tricky to grow. I think they’re sensitive to anaerobic bac from standing water(overwatering) I’m hoping they bounce back but lots of tops so far after a cpl weeks of flower.

I have to disclose that I took 30mg of edibles before I smoked. That being said, in the early stages I felt like I was having a out of body experience. I was experiencing an increase of all my senses, the colors and sounds were so clear, it was like I had super vision and hearing. However, the pleasure soon would end and I began to feel strange, anxious and paranoid and very irritable. It felt like my heart was beating so fast that I was sure I was going to have a heart attack. My vision began to cloud up, literally I was seeing smoke or clouds all over the room. It felt like I could hear ppl from miles away, could hear everything in the house it felt. Then the paranoia became pure panic, it felt like I was dying, not even being dramatic. Now I know this is all from smoking too much and mixing with the edibles but what a trip. Thought I was going to meet my maker. Girlfriend loved it and was laughing at me the entire time, lol! Enjoy in moderation!

mac is one of my top 5 favorites. It has a great smell and taste and pushes all the right buttons. it is a balanced hybrid that delivers the best of both worlds: cerebral, full body buzz, euphoria, uplifting and relaxing. The high is however slightly low and doesnt deliver as much as I would want, but it is smooth and clear.

I made a mistake and smoked this strain before finishing up my chores. I sat there and continually cursed myself for that. I was too lazy to even fix myself a cup of hot chocolate. This shit makes you lazy and couch locked. I dont agree with most reviews I have read on Leafly and other websites about making one active and creative. it is only ideal for night use.

most reviews about mac are true. This strain is quite potent and delivers as it says. I suffer from Bipolar disorder with escalated mood swings and depression and MAC has helped me deal with the condition. This dope is definitely worth the price.
