One of the most popular strains on the market today is the Pineapple Express. While the Pineapple Express became immensely popular after the release of the movie by the same name, it’s been around for much longer than the movie. The exact origins are a bit hard to trace as there is no specific data on where it first appeared. It’s a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain from G13 Labs that was developed by crossing the Trainwreck and the Hawaiian weed. It is the right choice for connoisseurs who appreciate the strains with higher than average potency. THC content in this weed can reach 20-23%.

Taste and Smell

Pineapple Express marijuana smells a bit like sweet citrus mixed with some tropical fruit such as pineapple while the aroma it gives is earthy, piney, sweet and kind of like pineapple. It has a nice fruity cocktail flavor with kind of pine aftertaste. It’s basically tropical, sweet and sour at the same time tipping over to some mango-citrus like taste mixed with pineapple.

Typical Effects

The effects are not as crazy as in the movie – you will feel uplifted and happy, your creativity will increase, and you’ll feel euphoric. Consumer report being:

Growing Information

Pineapple Express strain seeds aren’t too hard to find and it’s best if you grow it in the fall.

Pineapple Express Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19.33 - 21% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.69 - 0.95% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.2 - 0.68% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.36 - 0.76% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.07 - 0.2% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.16 - 0.79% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

Pineapple taste as one would expect. A great strain for anxiety and stress. It has a good amount of THC and first puff will most likely get you high for a while. A good appetite booster although I wouldn’t go for it as the first option.

Write your reply

Nice smelling bud didn’t do much for my chronic pain. It made me feel happy, chatty, and friendly and stimulated my appetite. It didn’t help much with insomnia. I think there are better strains out there.

Write your reply

When you hear of a creeper then think about pineapple express. It has a slow building high but a few puffs and it knocks you down. If you combine it with another stronger strain you will be crawling to bed. I am not very impressed with pineapple express but I am kinda high, but I would choose better strains like Sour Diesel.
