Pineapple Express has been around for a while, but there’s no question why it suddenly became a household name a few years back. We’re all familiar with the James Franco and Seth Rogen film with the same name, but did you know that Pineapple Express had been a fan favorite in the Netherlands for half a decade before the movie’s release? If famous pot smokers and the Dutch think it’s a winner, then it’s a winner. A cross between Trainwreck and Hawaiian, this tropical bud is a smooth and sweet smoke that will certainly have you chasing it at least once. The THC on this strain hits above 24% regularly and boasts aromas likened to a fruit stand. With overtones of fresh cut pineapple and mango, and undertones of green apple and pine, this tropical bud will have your senses tantalized upon opening the bag. If the scents weren’t enough, the flavors are similar and super strong. These olive colored, rock-shaped buds taste like a fresh slice of pineapple with a substantial pine aftertaste.
Though not nearly as intense as the movie would have you believe, it won’t turn you into a rambling, beat-boxing Bill Hader, this buzz is powerful in its own way and will have you floating through the air in no time. This mild body numb is accompanied by a heady, happy high that leaves users feeling creative and talkative. As your body relaxes into the high your mind will start to focus and feel productive. The energy this bud provides makes it easy to get through a short to-do list.
Pineapple Express may seem like it’s just for the recreational user, but it has medical benefits as well. This calming, yet somehow stimulating, bud has the ability to lift the mood and heighten productivity making it perfect for anyone suffering from depression, chronic stress, anxiety, fatigue, or generalized restlessness. As it has minor sedative properties, Pineapple Express is also good for mild pains and inflammations as well as migraines and muscle tightness.
This tall growing plant is a great indoor/outdoor plant, but typically does better indoors with controlled temperatures. If you are cultivating inside be sure to give Pineapple Express lots of space, as her branches tend to reach far and wide. The yields of this strain are typically high and it is considered an auto-flowering strain. Expect your perfect harvest around 7 to 8 weeks, or if you are growing outdoors, mid-October.
