This strain is packed with mystery as a lot of its information has been left unknown. What we do know is that is a rare Indica-dominant hybrid created by breeders Wicked Weeds. Its parentage is unknown due to breeder secrecy and lack of information.
Don’t all these secrets make you want to try this strain more?
Of the little information out there, we have learned that it is pretty potent and has long-lasting body effects, a result of being Indica-dominant. It begins with a clear-headed high, enabling you to get stuff done before hitting you with that sedative relaxed body buzz.
Join us in the journey of unpacking what we can, about this rare strain.
Not only is the information about this bud being kept top secret, but so is any information about their breeder company. We know their name is Wicked Weed, but they are a difficult company to find information on.
After much digging, it was found that this is a family-run business operating in Washington. They specialize in high-quality indoor-grown marijuana products.
As we know, this strain was bred by Wicked Weeds but the rest of its origins have been kept secret. We know nothing about its lineage or its parentage. Interestingly, this is not the only strain to have a mysterious background.
OG Kush, one of the biggest names in the cannabis world has also had a lot of hearsay around its background and origin as these have been left unknown.
Don’t let the lack of information put you off Mac Daddy, because despite the lack of background information we have on OG Kush, it is still one of the most popular strains ever. It originated from “bag seed”, which, put simply, is a collection of miscellaneous seeds.
Some people have made educated guesses, and believe that this strain could be a cross between Chemdawg and the Hindu Kush, the latter being a strain that was originated between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Chemdawg is also a strain that has a mysterious origin. But again, it is also one of the best buds in the business. This shows you don’t need to have all the information to be a winner.
Chemdawg is Sativa-dominant, so it’ll be a great one to use if you’ve got to get stuff done. It offers a great cerebral high, just like Mac Daddy.
The genetics of this top-secret strain are unknown, surprise surprise. But we can’t leave you empty-handed, so based on the high this gives you, we decided to find some strains that give off a similar effect, so you have an idea of what to expect.
If you’ve dabbled in some different buds before, there may be a chance you’ve tried something similar to Mac Daddy.
Mac Daddy is said to give off a high that hits fast and hard, beginning with an energizing effect, leaving you clear-headed and focused. This is followed by a relaxing sedative body buzz, producing waves of numbness without weighing you down or leaving you foggy-headed.
Strains like Critical Jack are known for enhancing a clear mind and inducing creativity. Critical Jack also has a relaxing effect, but it is mainly applauded for its clear-headedness.
If it’s a balanced high that we are looking to compare it with, then we need to talk about Cactus. This is a strain that, similar to Mac Daddy, really begins with a bang of energy and clear-headedness before engulfing you in a relaxed, body-numbing high.
Its parents, Northern Lights and Afghani are the ones to thank for this balance. Northern lights, an Indica strain is known for its euphoric effects across the body which relaxes muscles. It is known as one of the most famous strains of all time.
Another strain known for its positive effect on the mind is Trainwreck. It’s a Sativa strain that is said to hit hard, enabling users to focus on tasks. It also produces a cerebral high that is mood-enhancing and euphoric.
Although it is Sativa-dominant, its Indica side is still displayed, giving the body a warm buzz that is also numbing.
The strains mentioned all have attributes that are evident in Mac Daddy, to give you a more vivid picture of what you can experience with this bud.
What we could find on the appearance of this plant is that its nugs are dense and olive green in color. It has dark leaves along with long orange hairs, and small frosty lavender crystals, all in all making this a relatively attractive plant.
The flavor of this mystery strain is said to carry a strong, pungent taste, with a rich, spicy but smooth flavor. The combination of spicy yet smooth could be compared to Northern Lights, a strain known to be very smooth on the exhale but also spicy due to its Myrcene and Pinene terpenes.
Another strain providing users with a spicy taste would be Jack Herer. This is a generally smooth smoke but its herbal aromas give off a spicy-floral odor and taste.
Although there are many phenotypes of Jack Herer, that contain different terpenes, Jack mostly presents itself as terpinolene-dominant, with peppery, pine spicy aromas.
The spicy flavor of this strain is followed by a similar aroma along with a skunky smell. This could be compared to Death Star, one of the most potent strains out there (if you didn’t already catch that from its name).
It is a cross between Sensei Star and Sour Diesel and results in a flower with very strong fuel and skunk-like flavors.
As the name suggests, Lemon Skunk is also known for its skunky smell. However, it is combined with some lemony tones and is known for delivering a joyful high.
If you have tried any of these other strains mentioned, they could give you an idea of what kinds of aromas and tastes you will experience with Mac Daddy.
Cannabinoids are a group of substances that are found in marijuana plants. The main ones are THC and CBD.
THC is short for tetrahydrocannabinol, try saying that after a few tokes! This is the substance that is responsible for the mental effects of marijuana. It stimulates the brain to release dopamine, one of the happy hormones, creating euphoria.
THC is also responsible for inducing hallucinations and psychoactive effects. Although CBD is psychoactive, it doesn’t produce the high that is associated with THC.
CBD is known to help with depression, anxiety, and seizures. Although the genetics and history of this strain are unknown, it is known to have a THC level of 22% – 29% and a CBD level of 1%. Its high THC level shows this to be a relatively strong strain.
Its exact terpenes are not known but going by its aromas and flavors, myrcene is likely to be responsible for its skunky smell due to its earthy and musky aroma.
Caryophyllene could be responsible for its rich spicy notes as this is the terpene found in black pepper. It is also found in cloves and rosemary.
Strain Side Effects
The exact side effects of this strain are unknown. However, it is wise to consider the general side effects of marijuana which tend to be dry eyes and a dry mouth.
Mac Daddy is said to be good for treating chronic fatigue, depression, headaches, or migraines. It is also good for treating ADD or ADHD due to it being able to help concentrate on tasks. Its sedative nature is also good for treating muscle pain as it relaxes the body.
Users stated that the hit was very fast and lasted a long time. They stated it really helped with chronic pain, relaxing the muscles and body. Some stated the high was intense at first, but then calmed down and became very relaxing.
It was also noted that there was no headache or foggy-headed comedown. Many users also referred to its potency, stating it was one of the most powerful marijuana’s they had tried.
Strain Grow Info
Growth information on this strain is unknown, but its difficulty is said to be moderate. There are some important things to know with regards to growing marijuana. It can be grown from seed or clone, a clone being done using a cutting from a plant, which will grow identical to its mother.
The characteristics will be the same as the one it was derived from. It will have the same yield, cannabinoid profile, flavor, etc. A benefit of this is that seeds aren’t needed whenever you want to grow some more.
All you need to do is take a few clippings from the plant you’d like to clone and voila! However, a few drawbacks are that the cuttings need to be taken during the vegetative state, the flowering stage is too late, and any negatives the mother possesses such as disease will also begin to show in the new plant.
To add to the mystery that is Mac Daddy, there appear to be no online stores currently selling its seeds.
The little information we did find on this plant, was that it has an average flowering time. This is usually between 6 to 10 weeks.
Yield refers to the amount of cannabis one can obtain from a harvest. Certain strains yield more buds than others, Blue Dream, yielding around 21 ounces per plant. The only information on growing this strain told us that this plant has a great yield.
