We Share Our Gratitude for a Bountiful Harvest
For many of us, we have more to be thankful for right now than ever before. Even in a global pandemic, with tourism halted, a contentious election, and now here come the holidays.
Long before the Pilgrims and Wampanoag people shared a meal at the first American Thanksgiving, Native Hawaiians had been celebrating their own festival of thanks for centuries. The Makahiki season, typically celebrated from November through February, celebrates an abundant harvest thanks to Lono, the Hawaiian deity of peace, rain and agriculture. In the grateful spirit of both traditions, Maui Grown shares the bounty of our recent Bumper Crop with our loyal patients.
If you’re seeking an uplifting experience with alert pain relief and a hearty appetite for turkey dinner, try Tangie. This popular cross between old-school California Orange and Skunk varieties smells like a fresh, sweet tangerine thanks to its unique terpene entourage of d-Limonene; a-Pinene; a-Humulene; b-Myrcene; and b-Caryophyllene. Tangie is suitable for AM/PM use, so you won’t fall asleep during the football games.
For those in search of a more “chill” experience, look to Burmese. This is a pure landrace (native) varietal first collected in Northern Burma (Myanmar) during the late 1970s. Reported effects include relaxation, lowered anxiety and relief from spasms. Its bright aroma of grapefruit and green apples comes from the terpenes: b-Myrcene, b-Caryophyllene, Humulene, Linalool, Limonene. Burmese is a great choice after the pumpkin pie to ensure a good night’s sleep.
