The Maui Strain, also known as Maui Waui (Wowie) is mostly a Sativa.
Maui Wowie has a citrusy aroma and smooth, fruity, tropical flavor. Its euphoric, uplifting high is light and energetic. 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.
Like most sativa strains, Maui Wowie is valued by the medical marijuana community for its qualities beneficial to people suffering from stress, depression and anxiety.
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.
