Strain Profile/The Science: Hawaiian is a tall, vigorous, trichome covered plant that has been around since the early 70’s. This strain earned fame when it was purportedly used by the island’s early surf legends to relax their aching muscles after a long day of paddling their ancient long boards through the lineup at Pipeline, Sunset Beach, Waimea Bay and Makaha. Making those exotically peeling lefts and rights even more alluring, the early Hawaiian strain was crossed with a super heavy yielding, landrace Sativa, Laos – which in turn created the famous HTCC dominating strain, Hawaiian snow.
Appearance: Looking at Hawaiian Snow is like watching Kelly Slater terrorize backdoor pipeline on a good day … simply mesmerizing. Dripping in THC-laced trichomes, her dense buds are chartreuse in color with hints of purple accenting the tips her stoney flowers. Soul arching into your subconscious, Hawaiian Snow’s pistils appear burnt orange in color and represent a distinctive trait this exotic flower. One of her most notable attributes is her over-the-top density.
Consistency: A grinder is a must with this sticky lady! Hawaiian Snow has some seriously glutinous nuggets; a glue-like quality that makes rolling a joint, after breaking it apart, more than a little difficult.
Scent: Unleashing this potent girl from her well-sealed hiding place, she releases her spicy aroma into the air with hints of Thai chili, sriracha, sandalwood, and black licorice. After shredding a joint’s worth of her psychedelic plant matter, you can smell her sour fruit-like undertones and spiciness from blocks away. After smoking, she leaves her wonderfully spicy hazy aroma wafting through the air for hours.
Taste: After taking a healthy rip off the bong, you can feel her spicy smoke invigorate your taste buds with her complex collection of active flavonoids. Reminiscent of cedar wood, grapefruit, cherry, and whiskey, Hawaiian Snow’s flavor is a very unique experience. Upon exhaling her smoke you can pick up on subtle flavors of sour citrus with hints of mangos, kiwi, and oranges.
Effect: Hawaiian Snow not only elevates your mood … she truly energizes your soul. Providing a great deal of creative energy, this strain makes for a great daytime smoke with invigorating effects.
Strain Background: First cultivated in Amsterdam, Hawaiian Snow is a hybrid of two tropical landrace strains from the South Pacific. The marriage of these two almost pure Sativas creates one of the most psychedelic strains you’ll ever experience.
