What is the Maui Wawie Marijuana Strain?
This is your typical sativa bud in that it is energetic, euphoric, and with a physical buzz like no other. However, this Hawaiian born flower holds back on the mind-race, so it can be enjoyed by almost anyone!
With a somewhat mysterious background, the genetics of this fruity bud are unknown, but what is clear is that it has brought all the flavors of the volcanic islands to America. With a complex range of spicy, fruit-filled notes that are both mouth-watering and delicious, Maui Wawie is a real treat to behold.
We’ve all heard those OG vet smokers complain that cannabis isn’t what it used to be, and it is true that today strains are stronger, punchier and more potent than ever. However, we have a lot to thank Maui Wawie for when it comes to that; being one of the first ever strains to offer a higher THC content, this sativa bud was well into its teens, leaving other strains in the dust as it soon became the number one must-have bud.
It was during the 60s that this flower first reared its head on the island of Maui, and it wasn’t long before it was being shared amongst every island in Hawaii before eventually making its way around the rest of the globe.
Although it isn’t considered one of the most potent buds in today’s climate, Maui Wawie still offers a decent THC content, with the highest tests coming out at around 28%! Both patients and cannabis enthusiasts alike will love the creative energy instilled from this flower, and it lasts for hours, too!
Aroma, Flavor and Appearance of the Maui Wawie Strain
Have you ever been to Hawaii? No? Well close your eyes and inhale the rich notes of sweet and tangy citrus in this exotic bud and you’re almost there! Maui Wawie offers rich notes of pine, earth and pineapple in a fresh yet exotic package that is unlike anything we have smelled before.
Although the initial smell of this bud is a delight, the real treat comes once it is broken up, as you are hit with potent sweet notes and an underlying citrus edge that gives it a tangy kick.
Along the same vein as the aroma, Maui Wawie tastes fruity, sweet, and complex, with a subtle spice that tickles the back of the throat. The tropical flavours intermingle and develop into a richer, more potent pine, which helps balance out the sweetness and has you going back for seconds before you know it!
What can we say, we love a big bud, and Maui Wawie is certainly that! Boasting heights of up to 78 inches this is not a bud to mess with. Vibrant green hues intermingled with vivid orange hairs really are a sight to behold.
Thanks to its nourishing soil, the colors in this bud are beautiful to behold and appear extra vivid, making the frosted, thick white trichomes stand out even more against the colorful backdrop.
