1000+ happy customers
Yes, we know, you saw the 2008 movie, loved it, and now you’re into it. But truth be told, Pineapple Express was around long before the stoner pal movie came out. The idea had to come from somewhere, right? In fact, the Pineapple Express cannabis strain has likely launched a thousand screenplays, since it’s a strain known for enhancing creativity. Let’s look at it more closely.
Pineapple Express Basics
Born from the Trainwreck and Hawaiian strains, the Pineapple Express strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid that’s around 60% sativa and 40% indica. It offers a perfect combination of flavorful power. While the movie makes it out to be the incredible mind-altering buzz, well, that’s Hollywood for ya. It’s not that potent, but its ‘high’ is a solid, soothing, body-numbing buzz that makes you happy and comfortable. It does yield about 25%-27% THC, so it’s a very strong strain that is nothing to scoff at.
The movie made it popular, but the Dutch have been onto this strain since well before that, and well, if the Dutch like it, you know it’s gotta be a good strain!
As for their visual appearance, Pineapple Express trichome nugs are dense and look a little like fake popcorn thanks to their lumpy shape and are yellowish/greenish in color.
Growing Pineapple Express Seeds
It can be grown both indoors and outdoors. The plant tends to grow tall, so some training might be necessary if space is a concern. However, a controlled indoor environment can help in ensuring the plant gets optimal conditions throughout its growth cycle. Pineapple Express prefers a Mediterranean climate with temperatures ranging from 70-85°F (21-29°C) during the day. While the plant can handle slight fluctuations, avoiding extreme cold or heat is essential.
- Indoors: Typically flowers within 7-8 weeks. Also, ensure that Pineapple Express receives at least 18 hours of light during the vegetative stage and 12 hours during the flowering stage. Use high-quality LED, HPS, or MH lights to ensure the plant gets adequate light intensity.
- Outdoors: Harvest usually takes place around late September to early October. once its trichomes are milky white with a few turning amber.
Flavor & Aroma
Basically, Pineapple Express has a flavor profile and aroma profile like a fruit stand at a farmers market. There’s the typical woody musky flavor associated with cannabis, along with strong pineapple flavors, plus fresh twists of apple and mango. The aroma is strong, but it also carries over into the taste. It’s not a sweet fruity flavor, though, and does leave a pine aftertaste.
Pineapple Express Uses and Effects
While the obvious assumption that this is strictly a recreational strain would be understandable thanks to its cerebral high and uplifting feelings, it is also wrong. The potent Pineapple Express strain is a great choice for its therapeutic value as well. It’s not just a mood enhancer, but it’s also a stimulant, so it lifts the spirit and the mind effortlessly. With its mild sedating quality, it’s a good choice for those seeking relief from stress and pains. It’s actually quite popular for mood disorders.
