Maui Waui
Recommended Time of Use


Maui Waui, sometimes called Maui Wowie, is a mostly 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.

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 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.

Maui Waui originated as an outdoor grow on the island of Maui and almost immediately spread to all the Hawaiian Islands. Unfortunately the strain's exact genetics are not known. 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.

Once I got my Michigan Medical Marijuana card, I was delighted at the many and varied strains and cannabis products that became readily available. This September will mark my 50th anniversary of enjoying the weed. In the 80's, Maui was available as The Top of the line in weed, purchasable at a higher price. So, when I saw it available at a local dispo, it was with great excitement that at first glimpse, it resembled the hairy orange bud. To my added delight, The Taste was there! So, when I can get it, I do, just for the taste flashback! Wowee!

I tried this strain and I highly recommend it to anyone that has trouble with relaxing or tension headaches. I had both at the time and within a half hour both were gone.

Love the REAL Maui Waui. Although beware, most dispensaries that say they have Maui Waui are usually cut with various other strains. Very few of them are true Maui Waui.
