I recently sampled a gram of the Wildfred Root Beer MAC, as part of the sativa flower Illinois High Times Magazine People’s Choice Cannabis Cup kit, picked up from Rise Mundelein. I usually snicker when I see celebrity endorsed cannabis labels. Outside of the rare exceptions, such as Snoop or Willie Nelson, it’s hard to argue that celebrities are bringing a lot to the industry. Apparently, that attitude does not extend to fictional characters. Legacy’s Wilfred label is named for the Australian-American TV series and eponymous dog, created by Jason Gann.
The stoner comedy series was a personal favorite for my wife and me, so we were instantly interested in sampling the new label of the same name. Root Beer MAC is a sativa-leaning hybrid cross of MAC #11 and Root Beer, originally bred by Mosca Seeds. This batch of flower tested at 2.41% CBGa, 0.98% THC, 22.55% THCa, and 25.94% total cannabinoids. Terpenes were 2.82% of the total weight with β-myrcene, terpinolene, ocimene, and limonene being the heaviest.
The mylar carried one large, Christmas-tree shaped, pointed flower. There was a blend of light green tones underneath bunched fire orange hairs and the remnants of some darker sugar leaf. The trichome presence was light and right at the line of the milky to amber color transition. Dense but spongy, this bud carried a level of moisture indicating its freshness.
The top end of the aroma was a tangy, sharp blend of diesel gas, the chemical note of terpinolene, and fresh lemon peel, while the undertones revealed more complex notes of hot funk and roasted meat at the finish. The tangy top notes of lemon and terpinolene flashed by on the palate quickly, leaving a unique, roasty funk note and hints of fresh herbs on the exhale.
Root Beer MAC induced a fast acting euphoric tingle in my arms and legs that became a more intense, full body effect as time passed. A wave of calm introspection hit me, and my headspace and awareness became more spacious and open. Even with this calm attitude, I noticed my energy levels increasing before leveling off at the half-hour mark.
Overall, Root Beer MAC was a good functional sativa with a unique funky flavor profile and I look forward to seeing more from the Wilfred label. For more Illinois News Joint reviews, visit here.
