Hydrolife explains Maui Wowie
Maui Wowie features a very strong tropical aroma that sets it apart from other cannabis strains. The taste is typically fruity. The strain is known as an ideal stress-reliever. It does provide a bit of an energy boost if used during the morning but most users do not report racing thoughts. Usually, the mind can drift in a creative way after use.
The Maui Wowie strain is considered tropical and grows best in locations that can recreate its need for warmth and ample sun.Although the seeds can be purchased and grown anywhere, there remains a distinct difference between island-grown Maui Wowie and plants grown on the mainland.
