The result of crossbreeding the female Blockhead and the male Killer Queen done by Irie Vibe Seeds, the Mau Mau strain is a 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid with a moderately high THC level that varies between 16 and 18%.
The strain starts working very fast: right after the first toke, you will feel a powerful, uplifting cerebral head buzz that will fill your body with positive energy and motivation to do all the planned tasks and much more. This is why Mau-Mau is great for morning and daytime use, especially if you want to stay focused and upbeat.
However, depending on the dosage, the same strain can become quite sedative. At some point, the sensation can grow further from your eyes to your forehead and slowly turn into an unwinding body high. The further it develops, the more sedative it becomes, so you can end up peacefully sleeping on your couch. Due to these qualities, Mau-Mau is used for treating ADD, ADHD, anxiety, and chronicstress.
The aroma of Mau-Mau is pungent and spicy with strong citrus undertones. Upon exhale, it becomes a bit more intensive, so you can taste some sweet berry notes as well.
The strain got its name as a tribute to a British street artist with the same name. After trying this weed, he decided to design an original package for the strain's seeds.
The strain is quite easy to cultivate and can be a great choice for beginner growers. It takes about 8-9 weeks to flower, and as a result, you will get medium-sized heart-shaped nugs of a golden color with a spattering of fiery amber hairs and milky crystal trichomes covered with sticky resin.
