There are times that a strain name sells me a product. Maybe it’s the right flavor. Maybe it’s the right genetics. Maybe the dispensary just caught me at the right time. Revolution had me with its new flower drop, because as soon as I saw Mac & Cheese (Spicy Papaya Cut) on the menu at Consume Marion, I knew I wasn’t leaving without it.
Mac & Cheese is an indica dominant hybrid cross of Alien Cheese and M.A.C. Revolution has dubbed this pheno, The Spicy Papaya Cut, which is listed as a sativa. The testing came in at 26.43% THCa, 0.81% THC, and 28.64% total cannabinoids. The primary terpenes were terpinolene, b-caryophyllene, b-myrcene, limonene, and ocimene.
This eighth came as a pair of large, picturesque flowers and trimmed to a point, like tiny Christmas trees. The well developed golden trichome frost and thick orange hairs made the light green tone underneath pop. The trim was among the best I’ve gotten from a dispensary, and the moisture content made for an easy grind and smooth smoke. Revolution did these buds right.
The aroma was pungent and hit my nose as soon as I opened the jar. The terpinolene came out to shine, even more than it did in Bedford Grow’s Ophelia, and it brought along a tangy, medicinal, and chemical note that was one-of-a-kind.
The spice took over quickly and I detected notes of cinnamon, fresh peppers, orange peel, cherry, mango, and hot diesel. Those sweet mango and fresh pepper flavors came to the front when smoked, and the aroma and flavor remained consistently bright and tangy throughout.
Although Mac & Cheese is typically a slightly indica leaning strain, Revolution has labeled this “Spicy Papaya” phenotype as a slightly sativa-leaning hybrid, and I have to agree with the analysis.
My headspace opened up with that classic wide space to think and create. My body buzz was euphoric and made me crack a smile that eventually became giggles. My mood elevation and wide open mindspace persisted for hours, even after the body buzz had left.
This is a great window into the effects and flavors of terpinolene heavy flower and an overall solid eighth from Revolution.
