Strain Integrity

From HighTimes, ” The superb cookies genetics from California are simply too good not to develop a couple of sublime hybrids from. That’s why T.H.Seeds, the company responsible for the popular French Cookies strain, released the Cookies cross French Macaron, consisting of Gelato 33 x French Cookies. In search of an appropriate breeding partner, T.H.Seeds paired up with the Cookie Family, whose Gelato 33 is a delicious hybrid of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies (a special GSC phenotype) and Sunset Sherbet (Girl Scout Cookies x Pink Panties). And with French Cookies having been developed by T.H.Seeds from a bag seed found in original GSC flowers, there’s a damn lot of Girl Scout Cookies contained in French Macaron!  ”

From the OCS website, ” French Macaron from Jonny Chronic is a moderate to high THC indica-dominant strain that produces vibrant purple buds. French Macarons is a cross between Gelato #33 x French Cookies and is dominant in Nerolidol, Caryophyllene, Humulene. French Macaron plants are grown with the utmost care in small batches before they are hang-dried, slow-cured, and delicately hand-trimmed and then packaged fresh to preserve their true elegance.

A vibrant new Indica genetic ~ French Macaron

The name French Macaron caught our eye and imagination.  French Macaron by JONNY Chronic packaged on November 12, 2020, about 3 weeks before our purchase, cost $42.95 for 3.5 grams with 17.1% THC and a traditional dank piney Indica scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts with euphoria during inhalation and even more euphoria after inhalation.  There is some body tranquilizing effect but the cerebral awakening is more forceful.  Ten minutes later, warm joyful blissfulness washes over us as we drift into a quiet calm oasis we call Indica land.  Melting into the Indica ether, time dilation shows up to completely remove out last connection to reality.  Half an hour disappears with a snap of the fingers.

While we were disappointed by with the 17.11% THC given the $42.95 price tag, this French Macaron’s effects are hitting above its THC rating.  Translated, this strain provide a full Indica spectrum effect but at a medium intensity.  Make sense?  The 2% of French Macaron terpenes was impactful to enriching the “high” experience.

French Macaron really “Shine” in real world test delivering a forceful presence of blissfulness and creative introspection to overwhelm reality.  Typically, real world “high” effects are much more subdued compared to our isolation tank “high” experience.   But not with this French Macaron as it dominates our senses warping our perception of reality against our will.  It was even better than our isolation tank “high,” which makes it remarkable.

Activity pairing is best for the evening time slot.  This French Macaron delivers a strong blend of euphoria, blissfulness and cerebral lightshow with energy makes this a great way to start the evening after a long hard day.


French Macaron by JONNY Chronic

This is a beautifully rendered French Macaron by JONNY Chronic (JC Green Cannabis Company).  Despite the lower THC for the price, this French Macaron delivered a rich Indica “high.”  The strain visual presentation was stunning with 3 large French Macaron nuggets.  For those who have not experience French Macaron, we recommend giving this a try.

THC:  17.11%

Quality:  8.2

Intensity:  8.0

Duration:  8.0

Total:  8.06

Cost:  $42.95 for 3.5 grams

Would we buy this again?  Unfortunately, Yes.   The problem is there is so much good “Weed” around $23 to $32 for 3.5 grams delivering 23%+ THC and incredible effects.  In defense of this French Macaron, this is a strain that actually preformed better in real world environment compared to our isolation tank review.  French Macaron effects are forceful and inescapable.  Outside of complaining about the price, we did really enjoy French Macaron by JONNY Chronic and recommend trying at least once.
