Pineapple Express is a popular sativa-leaning hybrid that was launched into mainstream consciousness thanks to the 2008 stoner comedy film of the same name. Crossed between Hawaiian and Trainwreck by Barney’s Farm, the strain is considered very high-quality and contains a high percentage of THC. Pineapple Express is good for beginners but is also a favourite of experienced smokers.
Appearance, Aroma, and Flavour
Pineapple Express is known for its pungent citrus aroma with undertones of pineapple and earthy pine. The strain’s flavour matches its aroma, but the flavour also has hints of mango. The flavour and aroma come from its abundance of caryophyllene, limonene, and ocimene. It has dense, curly dark green buds with some purple hues and bright amber pistils.
Effects and Medical Uses
Although Pineapple Express’s effects are not as intense as depicted in the comedy movie, they offer a very strong and relaxing high. The strain gives you a boost of energy and creativity with a light body buzz. Users are able to be functional during the day without feeling couch-locked because of the sativa properties. This strain can be enjoyed throughout the day and early evening. Because of its energizing effects, this is not the best strain to help with sleep. Users choose Pineapple Express to help get their creative juices flowing as well as helping with medical uses such as dealing with depression, pain, fatigue, anxiety and stress. Due to its uplifting effects, Pineapple Express helps increase an overall feeling of happiness and socialness.
