Maui Wowie (The Releaf Center)
Maui Wowie Medical Marijuana Strain Review
From: The Releaf Center
Type: Hawaiian Sativa
Price: $50/8th + tax
Appearance: (8.5/10) A healthy medium green with big, fat calxyes and bright orange pistils, this Maui shimmered with double-decker cloudy (with maybe 10% ambered) trichomes. Very Sativa structure, with foxtailing and an overall light build — it was well cared-for post-harvest and arrived dry and manicured very completely.
Aroma: (7.5/10) A bit piney, a bit earthy, but with a unique spicy smell that reminded us of fennel or even holiday spices. It wasn’t very pungent until it was ground up… very nice Maui nonetheless.
Taste: (7/10) Much like the smell, a pine taste was the dominant note, but there was also some lemon and a slight sweetness. It was expansive yet very smooth on the throat, and it burned down to a light gray ash, meaning the flush was very good.
Effects: The back of the head began to feel heavy, but the eyes and forehead filled with pressure and a buzzing sensation, with the eyes in particular being heavily medicated to the point that they almost felt blurry. A very potent start for this strain, it took us to a state where the head effects were nearly overwhelming, sending one reviewer off for a nap. Overall though, it was energetic in an even and non-rushy way, and felt capable mentally after the initial potency retreated. It also lightened the mood quite a bit, making us talkative and positive mentally. Very clean finish, it faded out without notice, lingering in the eyes for quite some time.
Duration: Medium-Long, about 2.5 hours
Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Energy, very strong ocular attention, mood elevation, body relaxation, and minor pain relief.
Overall: This may be the best Maui Wowie we’ve had the pleasure of trying, and it was certainly the most Sativa-looking. Very potent initially, it receded to an evenly energetic and clear-headed state but retained very strong eye effects throughout. It really shined when put under the camera lens, giving us a new appreciation for Maui in general. It’s an A-, but a very high one… this may be the maximum potential for a Maui.
