One of the first marijuana strains to boast a high-THC content, Maui Wowie flower can clock in at around 20% THC. Its buds are also known for their frosty appearance, which ups its shelf appeal. Fitting for its island roots, Maui Wowie has a tropical aroma and flavor that bring to mind hints of pineapple with other fruity accents.
