MAC 1, also known as “Miracle Alien Cookies 1,” is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created through crossing the infamous MAC F2 X (Unknown Colombian Landrace X Starfighter). With parents like these, you know you’re in for one crazy ride with MAC 1. This bud brings on the high-flying euphoria, with heavily cerebral effects that launch you into outer space and leave you there. This effect hits you almost instantly, smashing into your brain and leaving you insanely happy with a slightly unfocused and hazy sense. A deeply relaxing body high accompanies this heady lift, keeping you anchored as your mind flies higher and higher. Thanks to these effects and its super high 32% average THC level, MAC 1 is often chosen to treat patients suffering from conditions such as headaches or migraines, chronic pain, depression and chronic stress. This bud has a super spicy fruity berry flavor with a heavily gassy exhale. The aroma is very pungent and gassy with a diesel overtone that has touches of sweet and spicy berries to it, too. MAC 10 buds have fluffy oversized forest green nugs with dark green undertones, lots of furry orange hairs and a coating of frosty blueish-green tinted white crystal trichomes.
With THC levels that reach 22% in some tests, this is a very potent sativa-heavy hybrid. Lemon Skunk, which has a sativa/indica ratio of 60:40, is the award-winning descendant of two distinct Skunk phenotypes that were selected specifically for their tangy lemon traits. The aroma is Skunky and sweet while the flavor is reminiscent of sweet lemons and other citrus fruit. Lemon Skunk delivers a heady, peppy cerebral high that comes with a boost of energy and creativity, a dose of happiness, and a euphoric kick. It’s an uplifting yet lazy experience. The sativa genes offer effective treatment for depression, nausea, chronic pain, and everyday stresses. CBD levels are a bit higher than average in this strain, roughly 0.5% in some tests, but not high enough to recommend it as treatment for conditions that respond to CBD, such as epilepsy. Dry mouth and watery eyes are the only widely reported negative effects of Lemon Skunk, though paranoia, anxiety, and dizziness are also possible. Found up and down the West Coast, this strain is also popular in Colorado. It occasionally circulates on the black market, as well.
