The Mai Tai strain is a tropical strain that likely gets its sweet and tangy terpene profile from crossing Maui Waui with Tutti Frutti. However, there is some debate over this strain’s genetics as some claim it to be the cross between Sunset Sherbet and Purple Punch.
Either way, when you open up a package of Mai Tai, you’ll be greeted with notes of citrus and berries combined with hints of fresh, damp earth and tropical flowers similar to what the cocktail offers. The taste is similar on the exhale, as its flavor becomes even more like its fruity cocktail cousin.
Cured buds of Mai Tai have shades of light purple and a bit of pink found among light green flowers. Vivid golden pistils are easily noticeable amid a thick layer of trichomes that lighten its tones.
Mai Tai THC percentage levels tend to range in the mid to high 20’s and may even reach 30%.

They’ve said they have experienced a deep heavy-bodied high that eliminated pain and created a body buzz, while they experienced an increase in energy. Some enjoyed performing quick daily tasks at home as they became seemingly easier, while others enjoyed this strain in social situations as it enhanced their perception.
