Strain Review: Hawaiian Snow

A Trifecta of Haze Effects


A unique and pure sativa hybrid, Hawaiian Snow is an impressive strain that took first place in the 2003 High Times Cannabis Cup. This strain is bred from three different Haze sativas; Neville’s Haze, Pure Haze and Hawaiian Haze – which come together to offer effects that won’t soon be forgotten. Anyone looking for a superb sativa to start their day will be happy to get their hands on this gem.

What You Should Expect

This leafy plant is definitely going to strike you as a sativa before you ever feel the effects – the look is exactly what you would expect, loose and leafy and the plants themselves are generally very tall. When it comes to colors, this strain is a vibrant green (darker and lighter shades may vary, but never pale) with very fine orange hairs scattered throughout. A soft coating of white crystals also cover the buds, generally a sign of a potent strain.

The aroma of this strain is a bit of a musky one, with a hint of a sweet smell buried in the undertones, though the sweetness comes out more in the taste. This strain offers a THC content of up to 24%, so you know it is going to hit you pretty quick. The cerebral high falls into place after only a couple hits leaving you feeling relaxed, creative and a bit energetic and it will likely last a couple of hours. It may result in munchies, dry eyes and cotton mouth as well.

Medical Benefits

Hawaiian Snow is an optimal wake and bake strain, paired with a cup of coffee you will be feeling relaxed and energized, perfect for getting things done or a creative streak that could last for hours. If you use cannabis throughout the day, it will be a great strain to keep on hand as it doesn’t tend to have a heavy comedown when it starts to wear off. This strain can be used for a number of conditions and while it is mostly used for anxiety, depression and PTSD, it may also have benefits for those suffering from chronic joint pain or inflammation.

If you plan to grow this strain yourself you should keep in mind that this one is a slow grower – as are many pure sativa plants. It takes around 14 weeks to from seed to flower and you will need a taller space to keep the plants if you want them to reach their full potential. If you have experience growing this strain, I would love to hear your stories!
