The Blue Maui strain is a somewhat rare hybrid that can be found in California. It stems from two classic strains that are known and loved for their floral characteristics.
The Blue Maui Strain: Blue Dream X Maui Waui
The San Fernando Valley (SFV), and LA in general, is best known for its prevalence of OG strains. However, this batch of the Blue Maui strain was a welcomed change of pace.
I came across this batch of Blue Maui on my latest trip to SFVDM in Van Nuys, CA. I’d never come across this strain in the past and I was immediately intrigued upon hearing its name.
My research into its genetic lineage proved to be a fruitless endeavor, but its name and characteristics tell me that the Blue Maui strain is likely a cross between Blue Dream and Maui Waui. With this knowledge, I expected my medicating experience to be that of a mellow Sativa-dominant hybrid.
How Might The Blue Maui Strain Affect Me?
This batch of the Blue Maui strain had the sort of sweet, floral aroma that I would expect from a strain with blueberry in its lineage. A quick run through the grinder unleashed a hint of tropical fruit and Haze that made me even more excited to give this one a try.
“I began to notice a mellow, yet uplifting sensation in my mind after about 3 minutes.”
As is often the case when smoking or vaporizing cannabis, the effects of the Blue Maui strain started to present themselves almost instantly.
I began to notice a mellow, yet uplifting sensation in my mind after about 3 minutes; it was an ideal effect profile for dealing with anxiety and pent-up stress during the day.
Overall, I would say that the Blue Maui strain is a great option for stress and anxiety relief early in the day. It may also be beneficial for patients who suffer from PTSD, OCD, neuropathic pain, depression, and more.
