Pineapple Express is a hybrid cannabis strain that tastes tropical, with a pineapple appeal and undertones of spices and cedar. When harvest ready, this strain produces dense light green buds with slight purple hues.
Its THC content usually averages between 12-17% and doesn’t get much higher than this. Despite its acclaimed psychedelic stardom from the stoner movie “Pineapple Express,” its high is actually on the milder side. However, consumers enjoy its softer cerebral effects that increase creativity, can break through writer’s block, and increase social inventiveness while also inducing a light body buzz the relieves mild aches. Focus and awareness are often heightened. This is a lovely strain for consumers that are entering the cannabis scene.
The most notable ill side-effect is dry mouth, with some claiming it also creates dry eyes. While more unlikely than not, some have reported slight bouts of paranoia and dizziness that occurs when consumed improperly.
Flowering time for Pineapple Express is between 7-8 weeks and is most potent when “supercropped” (bush style growing: using lights of 600+ watts and topping the plant).
Pineapple Express derives its name from its parent lineage – a cross between the hybrid Trainwreck and sativa Hawaiian.
