MAC-1 has become one of our favourite strains. This well-know and popular hybrid was originally created when some genius decided Miracle 15 should be crossed with Alien Cookies. The end result is pure magic.
Edison describes their MAC-1 strain as extremely potent with dense buds that appear to be two-toned between light and dark greens with a pinch of purple on the outer tips. As you’d expect from MAC-1, the trichomes almost totally entomb every inch of the flower. MAC-1 has a complex aroma and flavour profile that seems to evolve over time starting with a distinct citrus flavour, then shifting to a mild gassy diesel smell and ultimately ending with a subtle hint of spice.
We reviewed Mac-1 from Citizen Stash and loved it, however the price was nearly twice that of this product. So how does Edison’s version stack up?

We love the idea of Edison taking on MAC-1 since this strain is a favourite and been difficult to find. The product arrived in Edison’s standard blue plastic container with resealable lid. We were expecting a strong aroma, but opening the top released a mild to medium smell of sour lemons with a very light gassy undertone. The smell was definitely on point for the strain, it just did not have the kick we anticipated.
Every single nugget in this batch was super tiny. Literally these buds were smaller than popcorn. However these micro-buds were a nice bright green tone with microscopic specks of purple around the edges of the leaves. Plus the orange hairs were obscured by a frosty layer of white trichomes that covered the entire surface. If there were bigger buds we’d be expecting to see more purple colour such as with Citizen Stash’s MAC-1. Edison’s MAC-1 looks good but it’s not on the same level as Citizen Stash’s version.
MAC-1 has some a wonderful flavour and this is one area Edison always seems to deliver on ( i.e. Edison’s BCP strain). With a very strong flavour profile of sour lemon paired with mild diesel and spice undertone, this product has a great flavour from beginning right to the end.
Our bag was part of lot number 135274211004 and packaged on April 10, 2021. Edison’s MAC-1 strain is a great product that is extremely affordable given the quality. With a very strong high that delivers both a sense of mild euphoria followed by a complete physical soothing and relaxation. MAC-1 from Edison Cannabis Co. is a great product at a great price and recommended. We liked this more then Carmel’s version however if you’re looking for the best version of this strain and price is no object, then check out Citizen Stash’s MAC 1.
