“Trace terps interact with pinene and caryophyllene to create that trademark incense and potpourri vibe, spiced undernote conjuring images of deep pillows in desert tents.”
Edison has taken a strain that’s been getting a lot of hype and made it available at about half the usual price. They’ve done what they do well, tasty buds, a +20% THC count, and a price that is a happy medium between budget and top-shelf. While not up to the snuff of other cuts of this strain, that is to be expected as it is otherwise picked up by more expensive small-batch LPs. And again, this is MAC-1 being provided at the benchmark of $10/g, an accomplishment by itself, but add to it Edison’s consistent standards (not counting before 2020 😅) and we got a winner.
Unfortunately, I was met with all popcorn. But if you look closely, you will see that the nugs are coated in a bright layer of golden trichomes. They thankfully did not get too destroyed during the machine trim, in what looks like a tumbler. The smell was muted compared to the usual Mac-1, however a very true representation otherwise. Trace terps interact with pinene and caryophyllene to create that trademark incense and potpourri vibe, spiced undernote conjuring images of deep pillows in desert tents. Over top is the limonene which balances it all out and adds a pop of brightness just like squeezing some citrus on your fave spicy dish.
The smell, being muted, meant that the taste on the inhales followed suit. However, the exhale is a different story, letting you experience the unique taste from its Alien Cookies side that MAC-1 was bred to showcase. It is very smooth for its price point, as are all Edison products, which have an exceptional cure for the mid-tier category. The specific effects were in line with the strain, as is the fact that the overall high hits above its THC %. It is an improved version of those old school hazes, offering a balanced high great in the sun but not necessarily for energy. Perfect to take to the beach to bask and match the waviness of the lake.
Edison’s MAC-1 will give many more the chance to taste this super unique strain. It capitalizes on what they do well, namely a tasty bud that hits as it should at a reasonable price. Keep it up y’all, I’d love to see some unique and tasty Romulan or Tangie from you next! 🙌🛸🍪👊🏽🈹
