Maui Wowie Strain
Maui Wowie is a must-smoke for any serious cannabis fan. This strain is a classic in the world of weed. When it first showed up on the scene back in the 1960s, it immediately became a huge sensation. Since then, tons of other strains have caught up to it regarding potency and THC content. But there’s still nothing else that has quite the same combination of smells, tastes, and energizing effects that Maui Wowie has been giving pot smokers for decades.
Maui Wowie is a Sativa dominant hybrid. Most Sativa strains have somewhere around 13% THC, and this one averages anywhere from 13% to 19%.
Back in the day, when Maui Wowie first emerged from the shores of Hawaii, it was very rare to find a strain with THC levels in the double digits. Maui Wowie’s most likely got its name because it blew that out of the water. For most smokers in the ’60s, this one would have wowed them. In its day, this strain pushed the envelope when it comes to potency.
Maui Wowie stays true to its Sativa roots. It gives most users an energizing sense of focus, creativity, and euphoria.

Expect a buzz that will be noticeable but that won’t leave you too spaced out.
