In spite of its fairly new appearance, Mai Tai Cookies is
undoubtedly one of the most powerful medicinal strains in the market. Its high
levels of CBD, coupled with its moderate THC, provides a wide array of relief
to patients suffering from either chronic pain or mental health disorders like
depression or anxiety. Not to mention, it has an impressive oil producing
performance which is unique for a CBD-enriched hybrid. Because of this, it won
the coveted title of ‘Best CBD Flower’ at the 2016 High Times Cannabis Cup in
Los Angeles.

Its highly therapeutic effects and functional head high are attributed to ACDC, an elusive strain with a THC to CBD ratio of 1:20. Alien Cookies, on the other hand, contributed to Mai Tai Cookies’ impressive trichome production as well as fruity terpene profile. At the same time, it improves upon its offspring’s wake-and-bake potential.

Mai Tai Cookies does not have the most powerful of psychedelic highs. Its effects are quite subtle and, rather than a full-on head slamming effect, it delivers a subtle rush of energy from the head down to the toes. This is precisely why its 8% to 14% THC remains a refreshing wake-and-bake experience to beginners and seasoned users alike.

Its initial onset is a cerebral uplift that clears away distractions. For many casual users, the mental clarity is a chance to go through a few documents or brainstorm with a fresh perspective. And, with a heightened sense of focus, staying productive for hours without feeling beat down or tired becomes less of a challenge. One  may prefer to turn the head high into a recreational advantage as well. After all, it does inspire an innate sense of happiness that translates into a bout of giggles.

A Mediterranean
climate is ideal when growing Mai Tai Cookies. It has the opportunity to soak
up the nutrient-rich sunlight while being free to grow vigorously without the inconvenience
or restraint of the four walls of a growing space. Still, many growers prefer
cultivating the strain indoors due to its commercial and medicinal nature.

In a controllable
environment, growers can adjust factors such as lighting, temperature, and
humidity. However, it may need to be pruned often. As alluded to earlier, the strain
is quite compact. If left unattended, it may harbor moisture that eventually
develops into mold or mildew between its crevices which will stunt its growth.

Trimming and removing certain branches or fan leaves will not only improve airflow but also circulate light to the lower nodes. This will also vastly encourage nutrient distribution to healthier parts.
