About Pineapple Express Strain:
Pineapple Express is a high-yielding strain with a parental lineage of Trainwreck and Hawaiian. Originating from the seed company G13 Labs, this Sativa dominant hybrid cannabis strain achieved mainstream popularity in 2008 amidst the release of the stoner film Pineapple Express. According to the lead actor Seth Rogen, the strain didn’t exist until after the movie was made. Inspired by the film, breeders created a potent cultivar that has become one of the most popular hybrid strains.
With a whopping 25% THC concentration, Pineapple Express effects are not one to play around with. It produces a heavy-hitting high and a sudden blast of energy that’s great for a busy workday. Some users also find that it increases their creativity, awareness, and alertness. However, high doses may produce a very potent cerebral energy that makes some people feel a little dizzy or anxious. Pineapple express inherited its citrusy flavor with tropical notes and kushy earthiness from its Trainwreck parent.
Pineapple Express is the right strain to look for when you need to enjoy weed with an incredibly fruity flavor. It has a complex terpene profile, including myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, and Alpha-Pinene, which combine to create a classic tropical aroma. Myrcene is the biggest player in this strain’s flavor and smell. It offers a potent herbal aroma with sweet yet spicy notes. Some say that the flavor profile of myrcene reminds them of fresh mango.
The sweet smell of Pineapple Express is often likened to that of fresh apple and mango blended with a powerful citrusy and piney aroma. The taste of this legendary strain is equally fruity. It’s almost like the aroma transforms to flavor once you light it up and inhale the thick smoke. The pineapple taste combines well with undertones of citrus and pine, and the added woody cedar is often a pleasant surprise.
Pineapple Express is a fairly balanced hybrid with a ratio of 60% Sativa and 40% Indica. However, its effects lean more towards sativa, meaning you should expect an energetic and creative high. You will immediately feel its strong cerebral effects, followed by a long-lasting relaxing, energetic body high. Its users also report increased focus and alertness, making it ideal for a productive afternoon. You might also want to try pineapple express when you’re in the mood to flex your creative muscles. Even a small amount of Express will put you in a good mood for studying, fishing, yoga, and other creative tasks.
Pineapple Express has won the hearts of many medical marijuana users thanks to its unbeatable medical effect. It has a notable amount of CBG, a minor cannabinoid that has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation. It also contains a small amount of CBD, which can help relieve pain and anxiety. Medical users also point out its ability to relieve the symptoms of clinical depression, PTSD, panic, nausea, appetite loss, and fatigue. Though a potent strain, the possible side effects of Pineapple Express are generally mild, including dry mouth, dry mouth, and dizziness.
