  1. My buddies scored a qt of Maui Wowie on my 17th birthday 12/26/88 & came over & smoked me, my girlfriend & mom up, WOW. unreal how amazing that was back then

  2. I’ve had a lot of trouble growing here in the Northeast. My Maui Wowie which I was watching very closely went from not ready to ready real quick and now I feel like I’ve waited too long

  3. Wowie is right. Back in the mid 70s, San Diego, we started our youthful right of passage buying dime bags full of leaves. We didn’t know pot had flowers. All our black light posters and weed t-shirts showed the 5 fingered leaf. And one followed it with a passage from Genesis (‘God gave the fruit bearing plants’).
    As we got a little older/wiser we looked for the sensi buds people were talking about. I found a guy selling, and bought a baggie with a bud across the bottom length. It was Maui. My friends and I had our first sensi bud. We never, ever, forever looked back.
    I’m not surprised its still around.
