Pineapple Express Strain
Pineapple Express has become super popular in recent years, thanks in part to the hilarious stoner film with the exact same name. But that’s not the only reason this strain has become so well known. It delivers a powerful yet energizing and uplifting high that will leave you feeling good all day long.
This Sativa dominant hybrid isn’t necessarily the most potent bud on the block. Most Pineapple Express buds have THC levels anywhere between 12% and 17%. To put that into context, most other Sativa strains have an average of 13.5% THC. But this strain makes up for its lack of super high THC levels by delivering a distinctive head high.
When you first start smoking Pineapple Express, expect to feel a slight body high that will leave you feeling super calm and relaxed. From there, the real magic of this strain kicks in.
After just another puff or two, you’ll be feeling incredibly uplifted, happy, and euphoric. A lot of regular smokers feel energized and focused after smoking this strain. And if you need a little spark of creative thinking or problem solving, this could be exactly what you’re looking for.
Scent & Flavor
This strain gets its name in large part from its sweet and tropical flavor profile. When you’re grinding up your buds, expect to smell the scent of sweet fruits, possibly something like an apple or a mango. That sweetness carries over into the smoke, which tastes faintly like pineapple or other tropical fruits. All in all, a seriously pleasant experience.
If you take a heavy dose of Pineapple Express, you could start feeling dizzy or paranoid. And you might get a headache. These same symptoms can also show up if you bake up a batch of super strong edibles using this strain.
Pineapple Express is an amazing strain for afternoon use. Its stimulating head high will give you the focus, energy, and clarity you need to finish out the day strong. It’s also perfect for social settings and for times when you need to channel some creative thinking.
Pineapple Express was created when breeders at G13 Labs crossed Trainwreck with Hawaii. There are also a couple imitations of Pineapple Express that have also been created by crossing similar strains.
This strain can be a rewarding one to grow at home since it can produce pretty big crops if it’s taken care of. Expect it to start sending out flowers 7 to 8 weeks after planting. You might be able to begin harvesting as early as day 56.
