Hawaiian Snow is a very potent sativa-dominant cannabis strain that was created by crossing an Hawaiian Sativa with a stain from Laos in south-east Asia. Hawaiian Snow has a reputation amongst heavy weed smokers for its powerful sativa high.
This plant won its first major award in 2003 when it was awarded 1st prize in the High Times Cannabis Cup that year; it has subsequently gone on to win more trophies. At 80% sativa this is a tall plant that also grows very wide with typically long, thin leaves. Indoors a shortened vegetative period followed by the employment of LST techniques during flowering is advised. This flowering period is quite long, reflective of its high proportion of sub-tropical sativa genetics, at 12 weeks but the wait is more than worthwhile as yields of up to 700 gr/m2 of top sativa buds will be yours.
Outdoors it is adaptable to a range of climates including tropical, sub-tropical, Mediterranean and war, dry, temperate types. Its long branches will need to be supported in the latter half of the flowering period so as to prevent them from snapping which would be devastating for its harvest potential. By the end of October in northern latitudes each plant is capable of producing as much as 1200 gr.
The production of THC is very high indeed at a measured 23% with low CBD of 0.17% and CBN of 0.12%. Its effect is an uplifting, social high that is something of a creeper at first but which builds and builds into a very powerful, long-lasting high that sativa-lovers will adore. It is recommended therapeutically as an anti-depressant and also for pain relief.
