Strain Integrity

According to Leafly, ” Mac 1, also known as ”  The MAC,” is a hybrid marijuana strain that crosses Alien Cookies F2 with Miracle 15. Mac 1 is a popular strain that consumers turn to for upbeat and balancing effects. But Mac 1 is special because not just anyone can grow it. In fact, growers of Mac 1 (Capulator’s Cut) have been carefully selected by the breeder in order to protect the quality of this versitile flower. Mac 1 is an instagram worthy strain, with eye-poppingly gorgeous buds that are nearly white and drenched in milky trichomes. Mac 1 comes through with a smooth, creamy, and funky terpene profile you can enjoy day and night.  ”

From the OCS website, ” MAC-1 (a cross of Miracle 15 x Alien Cookies) is a legendary hybrid cultivar with a history as robust and colourful as the bud itself. THC potent, Edison’s MAC-1 has super dense and firm buds composed of two-tone light and dark greens, with the occasional punch of light purple colouring. The trichomes covering this bud envelop every nook and cranny of the flower. An abundance of fiery copper pistils permeates throughout completing the rich and colourful mosaic. The aroma has an upfront citrus flavour, which then gives in to a mid-range gassy diesel smell and finishes with a hint of spice to complete this stellar sensory bouquet.

A different type of MAC-1

MAC-1 by Edison (Organigram) packaged on May 31, 2021, cost $34.95 for 3.5 grams with an indescribable light earthy floral scent.  Our test amount was 0.26 grams.

The “high” starts immediately and by the end of the inhalation session we were “high.”  A euphoric swarming of our senses quickly removed any resemblance of normality out the window.  There is a mental acceleration and spinning in circle sensation on an amusement ride cutting through time … twenty minutes disappeared.

This MAC-1 feels different than the other MAC-1s reviewed.  While it is strong, the “high” is a hazy chaotic euphoric surge.   We would not recommend this strain for studying, which is the highest value add activity when we get “high.”  We got a solid two hours “high” with a another hour of chill vibes.

Activity pairing is best for social situations where a party atmosphere is desirable.  This MAC-1 by Edison delivers a strong heady buzzy wake & bake “high.”


MAC-1 by Edison (Organigram)

In comparison to Qwest, Carmel or Citizen’s MAC-1’s intense clear pristine euphoric “highs,” this MAC-1 is different to these three other strains, which are all similar in “high.”  MAC-1 by Edison delivered a strong buzzing and hazy “high” for the first hour before clearing up to a more MAC-1 “high.”

THC:  21.1%

Quality:  8.2

Intensity:  8.2

Duration:  8.2

Total:  8.2

Cost:  $34.95 for 3.5 grams

Would we buy this again?  Maybe.  For the price, this is the cheapest MAC-1 on the market.  Unfortunately, the “high” is not reflective of a MAC-1.  But, despite having a different “high” profile, this MAC-1 delivered a strong “high” experience.

On an investment note, Organigram has a new CEO, Beena Goldenberg, former CEO of Supreme Cannabis, which was recently acquired by Canopy.  Ms. Beena Goldenberg holds a Master of Engineering from McGill University, which is impressive.  While we are not big fans of Organigram, we are impressed with their efforts to be better everyday.
