Strain Integrity

According to allbud.com, ” MAC 1, also known as “Miracle Alien Cookies X1.” Is an evenly balanced hybrid strain (50% indica/50% sativa) created as a backcross of the iconic MAC strain. This celebrity child takes the beloved effects of MAC and amps it up a notch to a whole new level, with a super lifted feeling that will have you flying higher and higher the more that you toke. The high starts in the head with a rushing euphoria that fills your mind with an expansive happiness, gently easing away negative or racing thoughts and replacing them with creative motivation and pure happiness. A relaxing body high accompanies this cerebral lift, keeping you tethered to the world below as your mind soars higher and higher into outer space….

From the JR Strain, ” This beauty is a terp factory that just assaults the olfactory with an electric funk that’s hard to describe. Glistening, conical buds painted olive green with a touch of cobalt blue will leave you drooling. It just smells really, really good. Like you would eat it. With a hefty terpene content, this girl slaps! A touch of limonene with a bucketful of ocimene and myrcene on the side. Yes, B.T.E. is our new favorite here.

Relaxed Chilled Cerebral Bliss

Big Terp Energy (Alien Cookies F2 x Miracle 15) 5 x 0.5 gram Pre-rolls  by JR Strain packaged on November 10, 2023, cost $24.82 for 5 x 0.50 gram Pre-roll with 22.65% THC 3.8% Total Terpenes and a spiced peppery dry draw.  Our test amount was 1 x 0.50 gram pre-roll.

The “high” started with a worrisome J burn before settling down to some uplifting euphoric effect.  Over the first 15 minutes, Big Terp Energy cranks up the feeling of acceleration with a dizzying effect for a dissociative and disorientating “high.”  This is a Prime Sativa Disorientation launch before settling down on a relaxed chill “high.”

In the great outdoors, Big Terp Energy delivered the expected MAC-1 “high.”   With greater clarity, Big Terp Energy’s “high” was an uplifting clear blissful cerebral “high” that also brings a quiet optimism with psychedelic over tones.  The great outdoors dampening reduced the acceleration and dissociation making the “high” more MAC-1.

Activity pairing is best as a blissful pickup in the latter part of the day.  This Big Terp Energy aka MAC-1 brings the more relaxed chilled cerebral bliss to the “high.”

Conclusion

Big Terp Energy (MAC-1) by JR Strain

Big Terp Energy aka MAC-1 Pre-roll by JR Strain is a calm blissful cerebral euphoric “high.”  This version is similar to Organigram’s MAC-1 good for social interactions but different than Carmel’s MAC-1, which is great for studying, or being productive.

THC:  22.65%

Total Terpenes:  3.8%

Quality: 8.8

Cost: $24.82 for 5 x 0.5 gram Pre-rolls

Would we buy this again?  Yes.  If we are looking for a Pre-roll for a quick chill euphoric “high,” this version of MAC-1 can fit that requirement.  Similar type of “highs” are Red Bullz by Ripe Flowers, Peace Force by Tadu, or Birthday Cake by Freedom Cannabis.

On an investment note, JR Strain uses a unique cultivation technique, Aeroponics, which is rare in cannabis cultivation.  In an overcrowded cannabis cultivation landscape, being different helps to standout from the crowd.   Is there a difference in the “high” from Aeroponic grown cannabis?  Worth a try.
