We’ve added three distinct Hawaiian landrace strains that are loaded with tropical terpenes and history. For all the Chemdawg enthusiasts, dig into some Stardawg Guava, which combines two awesome Chemdawg cuts, Chemdawg 4 and Tres Stardawg. Hang loose, y’all, and be good to each other.

Leafly Moloka'i Frost indica cannabis strain tile
Moloka’i Frost

Moloka’i Frost (also known as Moloka’i Hashplant) is a potent sativa-dominant strain with a robust medicinal history. In 1969, residents of the Lalaaupapa Moloka’i leper colony were allowed to leave and access modern medicine. But a special medicine also left the Kalawao Valley (pronounced ka-la-wow), too. This flower grows like a sativa, but exhibits extremely powerful indica-like effects, including heavy sedation, strong analgesic effects, and latent euphoria that complements this strain’s heavy body elements. This rare resinous flower is a Hawaiian landrace worth seeking out.
