Maqui is a strain that is ideal for doing arts and crafts, enjoying a movie or spa day with friends, or relaxing and doing nothing in particular. It has that calm, happy-together feeling that marks a lot of Raw Genetics strains, especially those in the low-mid 20s THC range. A healthy dose of limonene packs a citrus-earth flavor to round out this Southern California favorite. It’s becoming infamous for getting consumers going in a long-lasting, slow and steady body buzz that mixes sweetness and relaxation.
The maqui strain is bred using only clones, so growers may have a hard time locating seeds. Raw Genetics combined Mochi and Ice Cream Cake to create this delectable hybrid, which is deep violet and forest green, like little puffs of springtime. The leaves are bright green in contrast with the deeper hues of the buds, punctuated by bright orange pistils and a light, unassuming layer of trichomes.
GROWING TIPS: Maqui is sensitive to temperature changes. Specifically, growers with ambitions to cultivate this crop need to live in conditions that are temperate enough, without worrying about any sudden freezing. Sphagnum moss can serve as a terrific way to improve your growing medium for Maqui’s touchy preferences when it comes to moisture levels. Beginning growers are just as likely to add too much moisture or too little.
Within minutes of beginning to enjoy Maqui, your head will begin to fog over. The strain is noted for a classic stoner’s high that puts your brain in a haze and stops any productive or motivated thoughts dead in their tracks. This is not a strain for people that want to get up and work but who want to be gripped in a warm wave of relaxing energy and physically relieved from their mind and body stress. We recommend waiting till the evening to enjoy Maqui.
Its terpene profile favors limonene, from which it gets its bright citrus overtones. It also includes myrcene and caryophyllene, which respectively add earthy and spicy flavors underneath. The balance is very enticing – you may not be able to stop once you start. For those who can handle the warm, tingling relaxation of Maqui, the flavor and calming sensations can work wonders for depression, stress, and fatigue.
Not to be confused with the maqui berries, a well-known Chilean plant used as an antioxidant, the Maqui strain is a stabilizer and de-stressor, one that can put your evenings in a fruity, earthy haze that lasts for hours and pairs perfectly with a movie or a day at the spa.
