Miracle Whip 25% THC
Miracle Whip has recently hit the market and it’s not easy to find. This strain is unique as it’s a triple cross hybrid strain. The lineage consists of Starfighter, Cookies & Cream, and Columbian. With an average THC level in the mid 20% range, it is a rare and special find right now.
Apple green with dark violet shades at every tip of the bud and spackled like berries on the nugs. With a light dusting of crystals, and a small number of red hairs adding a pop of color, the buds looked bright and vibrant. The batch I received had one large bud in it, very dense and compact. Crispy, but the density made it difficult to break apart. Only slightly sticky, and once broken apart, it crumbled easily.
As I opened the container, I was met with a light sweet fragrance, almost fruity, like a berry pie. I put the container close to my nostrils, and I was hit with a strong sour citrus smell. Like a fresh cut lime, and someone just squirted it in my face. Underneath the strong smell of limes, the sweetness breaks through, and somewhere in the back of the fragrance was a hint of trees. I loved it.
Very citrus in flavor, with the sour coming through nicely backed up by a sweet berry taste. I got the sensation of a sweet and sour fruit cocktail, with a hint of bay leaves put in. Slightly harsh, I could tell I was taking a hit, almost like when a cocktail has just a little too much alcohol. However, the harshness didn’t increase as I smoked more, the taste was delicious, and I was more than happy to smoke more.
As I blazed a bowl of this delicious Miracle Whip, I slowly felt my body relax. Not a lethargic relax, more of tension release from my muscles. The feeling came on gradually, and I sat my pipe down without thinking about it as I got lost in a conversation. The effects in my mind were so gradual, I didn’t notice that I was really baked until I tried to stand up. I felt my mood lift quite a bit, and my conversation partner got not only a little bit of the giggles but a strong perma-grin as well.
I feel this is an excellent strain for mood elevation, creative energy, and activity smoking. I also used it to focus while racing on my gaming console, and I was beating my competition with ease all night. I think Miracle whip is a good strain for depression, relaxation of the body without the sleepiness of an indica strain. This strain is great for users who like the aroma and flavor of their cannabis to be nice and strong. I feel that both veteran users and newer users will enjoy this strain, both for the effects, and the real flavor of smoking some great buds.
First, I accidentally found this strain. I was looking for a strong sativa that I could use for mood elevation. This was listed on the website of the dispensary as a high-level THC Sativa strain, and I decided to try it. Only after researching the strain did I discover that pretty much no one in the Reno-Sparks area has it, and there is very little information about it, even on the website of the dispensary I got it from. I loved Miracle Whip. From the bright, vibrant buds, to the strong lime aroma, to the sweet and sour flavor. I only marked it down for the low amount of crystals, and the slight harshness of the flavor. This is a very powerful, flavorful, aromatic, and delightful strain.

Sierra Well is located right behind Suzie’s Adult Book Store, and it’s only a few blocks from downtown Reno. The building is situated in a small shopping area, with the dispensary being the largest store of the maybe six to seven total shops I saw there. Parking is a little tricky as the entrance is small, and the exit opens onto a one-way street. There is a small amount of parking in front of the store areas, and a much larger overflow area behind the buildings, with an almost maze-like way of getting in and out of the parking area. Fortunately, I arrived early in the day, and I was able to park in front of the dispensary.
Once inside, I realized that this dispensary seems to focus on pick-up orders and deliveries. It is a larger store, with two counters on either side of the entrance just for pick up orders. I was greeted by a nice older gentleman who took my ID. He spent a few seconds on his computer before asking me if I’d ever been there before. When I said no, he chuckled and said that was probably why he couldn’t find me in the system. He asked me to wait a few minutes, and my name popped up on a big screen saying that I was in line for the store. There was an estimated wait time of two minutes, but there was no one in front of me, and I had barely sat down to wait when I was called back into the budtenders counter.
My budtender was polite and friendly, asked me what I was looking for, and we had a nice casual conversation about different strains. I told her my selection, she escorted me to the counter and put the information into a computer. Behind her, in a separate room, someone else retrieved the strains I requested and put them into a little basket. This is a completely different way of doing things than any other place I’ve been to in the Reno-Sparks area. They also offer something I haven’t seen anywhere else here. Instead of a stand-up ATM machine, they have what looks like regular card readers at the registers. I asked about them, and I was told that they’re ATM card readers. It still charges like using an ATM, $3.00 was labeled clearly on the machine, but they only take out $5.00 increments at a time instead of $20.00, and the budtender will return any change from the purchase.
