Pineapple Express weed combines the powerful and tasty forces of the parent strains Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The smell resembles fresh apple and mango, with a pineapple, pine, and cedar flavor. This blunt hybrid provides a lasting energy buzz perfect for productive afternoons and creative getaways.
Although this strain has been around for a while, there is no question why it suddenly became a household name a few years ago. We are all familiar with its huge popularity due to the James Franco and Seth Rogen film of the same name, but did you know that Pineapple Express had been a fan favorite in the Netherlands for half a decade before the film’s release? If the famous pot smokers and the Dutch think he is a winner, then he is a winner. A cross between Trainwreck and Hawaiian, this tropical bud is a soft and sweet smoke that will surely make you chase it at least once.
Breeders at Barney’s Farm rarely produce more than gold, so it is no wonder that this powerful strain is another success. The THC of this variety regularly exceeds 24% and has aromas compared to a fruit stand. With freshly cut mango and pineapple undertones, and green apple and pine undertones, this tropical bud will tempt you as you open the bag. If the aromas were not enough, the flavors are similar and super strong. These rock-shaped olive-green buds taste like a fresh pineapple slice with a piney aftertaste.
Although not as intense as the movie would have you believe, it won’t make you a fearless Bill Hader, this buzz is powerful on its own and will make you float in midair in no time. This mild body numbness is accompanied by a heady, happy high that leaves users feeling creative and communicative. As your body relaxes overhead, your mind will begin to focus and feel productive. The energy provided by this bud makes it easy to go through a short to-do list.
It may seem like Pineapple Express is for the recreational user only, but you can be sure it has medical benefits for wazoo. This calming, but the somewhat stimulating outbreak has the ability to elevate mood and increase productivity, making it perfect for anyone suffering from depression, chronic stress, anxiety, fatigue, or general restlessness. Because it has minor sedative properties, Pineapple Express is also good for mild pain and swelling, as well as migraines and muscle tension.
This tall growing plant is a great indoor/outdoor plant but generally grows best indoors with controlled temperatures. If you’re growing indoors, be sure to give Pineapple Express plenty of room as its branches tend to reach far and wide. The yields of this variety are typically high and it is considered an auto-flowering variety. Expect your perfect harvest around 7 to 8 weeks, or if you’re growing outdoors in mid-October.
If you find yourself motivated to get up and move around, this is a great bud for an adventure. This hard-hitting hybrid is a long-lasting energy variety that pairs perfectly with a busy schedule or creative endeavors. If you’re the type who likes to smoke hemp at home, this is a great dinner and movie pairing.
