Maui Wowie Cannabinoid/Terpene Profile
Typical THC levels of Maui Wowie are between 18 and 20 percent. CBD levels are usually 0.2 to 0.6 percent, and many samples also contain notable CBN levels as well as trace amounts of CBG and CBC.
In general, Maui Wowie is high in Limonene, Myrcene, and Linalool, with moderate amounts of Caryophyllene and Pinene, and smaller amounts of Humulene.
Linalool and Myrcene are known for their relaxing, herbal qualities. This works in balance with Limonene which is known for its energizing, uplifting effects, especially on the mood.
Caryophyllene is known to be an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, and can help relieve anxiety and pain. Pinene has many of the same qualities as caryophyllene, plus it opens the airways as a bronchodilator—that famous pine or menthol effect.
Humulene has many of the same pain relieving qualities as these other terpenes, plus it may relieve an over-active appetite. (Trace amounts, remember—this strain will boost the appetite for many users.)
