Effects & Usage



Mac and Cheese is a delectable title for a strain that promises and delivers a comforting euphoria – much like a good bowl of mac and cheese itself.

With THC levels averaging 19-25% and soaring up to 26-29% in some tests, it’s a strong contender for those seeking a hearty and heady high. Renowned for its intense and almost instant impact, the strain is akin to indulging in your favourite comfort food, only this one brings a burst that’s uplifting, motivating, and truly relaxing.


Upon exhaling, expect a cerebral jolt, surprising for an Indica-leaning hybrid. This Sativa-like rush is noticeable, and you will feel alive.

The high from Mac N Cheese hits you hard and fast, but perhaps not in a way that will get you off your couch to work and direct those creative energies. A burst of euphoria and happiness takes over; you feel motivated enough to come up with new ideas, discuss some thoughts, or just let yourself go in the moment. You will want to talk to anyone or enjoy your surroundings. If a movie, show, or music is on, then you may find yourself appreciating their creativity. If you have a notebook, you will want to write down all the good ideas that are brimming in your head.

Eventually, a tingly high body creeps in, locking you into a state of deep relaxation. This feeling is grounding and comforting and lasts several hours, setting an excellent stage for sleep.

Its potency and the nature of its effects make it an ideal strain for day and evening use. You may also want to check out other Sativa cultivars if you like Mac ‘N Cheese.


Medicinally, Mac And Cheese is a treasure trove. The strain’s potent relaxation properties make it an ideal candidate for those battling chronic pain or insomnia, offering a natural route to relief. Moreover, its appetite-enhancing qualities can be a boon for those with a low appetite.  It’s also noted for its ability to ease symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, inflammation, and migraines.

Side effects

As with many cannabis strains, Mac And Cheese has its array of side effects. Dry mouth and eyes remain the most common complaints. The strain’s high potency requires caution, especially for novice users or those sensitive to THC’s more intense effects. Anxiety and paranoia may also be expected in high doses.

Taste & Smell


Its aroma is a rich combination of sour cream and fruit with a cheesy quality different from the rest. It is pretty pungent and potent – you will smell it from a distance. The flavour profile resembles a gourmet dish, blending buttery, creamy, and cheesy notes with sour citrus and spicy skunk undertones.

Visually stunning, this strain boasts a golden hue with bright green leaves accented by peach-coloured pistils and lime-green trichomes.



The Mac and Cheese strain is a celebrated cross of MAC (Miracle Alien Cookies) and the renowned Alien Cheese strain. While its precise origins are a bit hazy, credit often goes to the skilled breeders at Capulator.

Growing conditions

Growing Mac and Cheese demands some level of expertise to produce decent yields. Flowering times hover around 8-9 weeks. Plants typically reach heights of 80-100 cm – much in line with their fellow Indica siblings. Cultivators will appreciate its mould resistance, though its potent aroma might necessitate good ventilation if grown indoors.
