Information about Purple Maui:
A trip to Hawaii is what many would consider a carefree vacation. Basking in the sun, dipping in the ocean water, and having a drink by the beach sounds like the epitome of a relaxing holiday. But, it can get quite expensive.
Good thing Purple Maui is here to save the day. Relatively cheaper than airplane ticket prices, it is a tropical treat that brings users to the shores of paradise all in a single puff.
Purple Maui's developers, Happy Harvest, never disclosed its genetics. However, many agree that its genetics came from two opposing strains. First is the Indica dominant strain, Granddaddy Purple, while the other is the Sativa leaning Maui Wowie. Contrasting in structure and the psychedelic high delivered, the union of these two brings the best of two worlds in one hybrid.
Purple Maui, incidentally, is also called Maui Purple by some people.
