About Maui Waui

History & Genetics

Maui Waui, sometimes called Maui Wowie, is a leaning 80% sativa hybrid that was considered a top-of-the-line strain when it first appeared in the 1960s. The argument, 'pot wasn't as potent back then' generally refers to a time before Maui Waui was developed.

Maui Waui was one of the first strains with greatly increased THC content. In the 60s, when Maui Waui was bred, the THC content of an average marijuana strain was quite low (almost always under 8%). Maui Waui featured THC content well into the teens and quickly became one of the most desired strains available.

The buds are renowned for their pleasant tropical and fruity aroma. A pineapple-like flavor is present when smoking it alongside a sour bite on the exhale. Maui Waui's buds are crusted in white trichomes with light green hues underneath. Orange and yellow hairs will pop out here and there.


These days, it is considered to be a middle to high-grade medication that provides a typical sativa high with a few indica perks. Other strains (along with new hybrids) have caught up and even surpassed this legendary strain in THC content.

Frequent users of Maui Waui report a happy and energetic high that can also increase creativity. It provides a light and pleasant body-numbing sensation as well as a strong case of the stereotypical 'munchies.' Users may expect dry eyes and mouth and possible paranoia. Some also encounter dizziness and headaches when consuming larger doses or ingesting edibles.

The sativa effects of this strain can relieve stress, anxiety, and chronic depression. Maui Waui's Indica side may be useful for easing minor chronic aches and pains. It is also used to stimulate appetite in those with anorexia and other eating disorders. Some users also use Maui Waui as medication for chronic migraine.


The plants of this strain show their true heritage in their height, usually reaching around 175 centimeters. Outside, Maui Waui should only be grown in a tropical climate. When grown in a tropical climate, Maui Waui is fairly resistant to molds and mildew as well as disease.

Stayin’ medicated

This strain helped me get out of the funk I was in for awhile. Truly a great strain for depression, fatigue, anxiety, PTSD, muscle pains, stress, eating disorders, you name it! Well maybe not insomnia because that’s not what it’s intended for. When I hit this in the morning I’m ready to hit the gym or go for a run/bike ride. It’s such an amazing euphoric upbeat feeling. I feel happy and creative when I’m medicating with this strain. Waui is an amazing strain.
