The Scoop: “Take a ride, competition take a ride.” Hawaiian Pepper, for lack of a more precise way of explaining it, is a fruity homage to Hawaiian Gold. A Sativa-heavy cross between Super Lemon Haze x Santa Cruz Golden Haze, Hawaiian Pepper is the tropical offspring of a collaborative effort between the band Pepper and Northern California’s Jahnetics.
It pays to have friends in high places. The members of Pepper, the dub-reggae/ska band with a uniquely 420-style, grew up together in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Blessed with talent, good fortune, and access to some of the island’s best weed, they’ve been Ohana since middle-school. Once the band left the Big Island behind for the Golden State, the guys had one small problem that notoriety couldn’t cure: Finding their Kona Town favorite, Hawaiian Gold.
Thanks to a timely introduction by a Weedmaps manager at the 2016 HTCC, Michael from Jannetics was able to fulfill the band’s quest “for a taste of home.”
The Result: Loaded with terpenes and soaked in the “Aloha Spirit,” Hawaiian Pepper instills an uplifting and creative high. A new aged hippie speedball of sorts, this strain simultaneously relaxes the stressed out body while igniting an artistic mindset. Pleasing the likes of Lono, Hawaiian Pepper is nothing short of a psychological rush. Like some surf starved rippers witnessing the ‘Seven Mile Miracle’ and Pipeline for the first time – just a few deep hits and you’re stoked for hours.
