Maui Wowie

Hawaiian Sativa

Maui Wowie, aka Maui Waui is a classic older strain from the 1970s, originating in Hawaii. The true history of the Sativa dominant strain is murky, as it became so popular that at some point, many if not all strains in Hawaii were sold under this name. Of course, back then, the craze for identifying and breeding Cannabis genetics hadn’t really come into vogue yet. President Obama and the “choom gang” certainly had access to this mega-strain as it dominated the Hawaiian scene.

Through selective breeding, Maui Wowie strains continued to evolve, and from Hawaii, the seeds were brought back to other areas such as California making this a group of strains rather than a particular varietal. The batches from Hawaii benefit from the intense tropical sun and the volcanic soil.

The typical flower going by this name is a mellower Sativa with a euphoric high, appetite stimulation, and fruity citrusy flavors, but that can vary. In fact, many strains going by this name do seem to have a noted Indica influence, decent pain relieving properties, and a more piney flavor. The strains were developed mainly outdoors where they can grow quite tall, and are therefore more suited for outdoor cultivation. It takes a full day of sun to properly mature. Compared to more modern strains, Maui Wowie isn’t as strong, but that doesn’t stop it from being quite memorable and enjoyable for those who try it.
