Malwai Memory Loss is a sativa strain of medicinal marijuana by Prime Wellness that… what? How does it feel again?

Let’s take another hit and find out.

A Bit of Context…

Prime Wellness was one of the first 12 companies to get their license to grow and process medicinal marijuana in June 2017, according to their website.

“From the start, we’ve made clear our commitment to advancing health and wellness and delivering the very best quality products to our dispensary partners across Pennsylvania,” they say on their website. “In December 2017, Prime Wellness secured an operational permit to begin the grow process at our custom-designed, 30,000 square-foot indoor facility in Berks County’s South Heidelberg Township.”

They are a patient-focused brand that specializes in cannabis flower, concentrates, distillate vape cartridges, and syringes, as displayed on their site.

Malawi Memory Loss Review

Malawi Memory Loss is an energetic strain with a light, planty, and perfumy taste.

“I vaporized some last night and it completely reduced my nausea,” XtaSeay said.

I, on the other hand, found the bulk of the benefits are in this strain’s cognitive effects. This strain is incredibly uplifting and rejuvenating.

“I think it feels more like a hybrid,” XtaSeay said. “Mellow, not too strong or overwhelming.”

In my experiences with Malawi Memory Loss, it feels sort of like it shifts your gears into drive. I immediately feel much more focused, present, and motivated.

Bug’s Two Cents

4.8 out of 5 trips down memory lane

I really enjoy Malawi Memory Loss and appreciate Prime Wellness as a whole.

Their brand is truly inviting; from their beautiful, rainbow packaging to the quality of their products, to their company message.

As for Malawi Memory Loss, this strain is a great mood uplifter and focus booster.

This is all thanks to the chemistry of the strain, it’s beautiful blend of the terpenes limonene, linalool, pinene, and myrcene.

As we learned in our review of White Sour flower by Grassroots, research has shown limonene and linalool regulate mood and memory. This is due to their interactions with neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and GABA.

The Burgundy Zine

In a study published in 2017, the Public Library of Science found pinene is one of the most abundant terpenes among cannabis sativa plants.

Pinene is the most widely found terpene in nature as well, according to a research review published in the British Journal of Pharmacology. It’s an antibiotic that even proved effective against MRSA, an antibiotic resistant bacterial infection.

Their review also found pinene is a bronchodilator, and strains with both pinene and linalool had positive effect on patients’ moods.

Myrcene is a sedating, analgesic, and relaxing terpene, research published in Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine says. It also has mood uplifting components.

All of these terpenes come together in perfect harmony in Malawi Memory Loss.

I highly recommend this strain to patients who are looking to feel more energized or generally uplifted. I’d also recommend this strain to patients looking to treat symptoms of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or narcolepsy.

XtaSeay’s Two Cents

“Malawi Memory Loss has sativa-like properties, such as nausea relief, increasing focus as well energy,” XtaSeay said. “It’s a great strain for functional day time use.”

He also said this tank had a nice flavor: perfumy, earthy, yet somewhat soapy.

“This strain is pretty dynamic,” XtaSeay added. “You could still go out and socialize or be productive, but it’s also great for chilling and watching something.”

“After using Malawi Memory Loss, I felt like I was truly consuming the story in whatever show or movie I was watching.”
