The hybrid cannabis strain Mau-Mau derives its name from a UK street artist who enjoyed the strain and created artwork for the original packaging for its seeds. Its harvest-ready buds are lumpy and forest green, being shaped like hearts or spades.
Mau-Mau's scent and taste are reminiscent of citrus and spices with undertones of sweet berries.
THC levels average between 12-18%. Its effects are known to help improve focus and increase energy, making it a choice strain for daytime use as well as a wake-and-bake strain. Creativity and motivation will spark, so hobbies and tasks will become seemingly easier to accomplish. This strain has slight headband-like effects as light but pleasant pressure forms behind the eyes that melts into a relaxing full-body stone. The more consumed, the more likely it is to feel sleepy, so smaller doses should suffice.
Besides normal dry mouth and eyes, Mau-Mau rarely creates ill side-effects. However, many strains can cause anxiety or paranoia when consumed in higher doses.
It takes between 8-9 weeks for Mau-Mau to fully flower.
