Pineapple Express Strain Review
Easily one of the most recognizable strains of all-time by name, Pineapple Express remains a mainstay of the ever-growing strain market. Why? Because its effects are just too irresistible to pass up. Plus, its flavor remains one of the dreamiest the cannabis world has ever seen. This hybrid has gotten quite a reputation. How come? Well, due to its association with a certain Hollywood film. In reality, though this strain is tamer by far. Let’s take a deep dive into Pineapple Express strain, as it’s one that everyone should try.
Time to Hop Aboard the Pineapple Express
Pineapple Express is a 60% sativa, 40% indica hybrid, and its parents are two absolute legends: Trainwreck and Hawaiian, which gives you a really good idea of what’s in store, both in terms of its flavor and its effects. Pineapple Express yields a very impressive 25% THC level, making this one really potent – keep that in mind if your tolerance is low. It also offers 1% CBN, which probably plays a role in its more relaxing qualities.
Checking Out the Buds
The fluffy, popcorn-like buds of Pineapple Express are pretty distinctive, and the olive-green hue is gorgeously vibrant. Clusters of thick, bright orange hairs coat each nug, with a pale green dusting of fine crystal trichomes muting the overall appearance. The buds are really attractive, and they’re also nice and big so that they stand out.
Growing Pineapple Express
If you want to grow your own, you’ll be happy to know that this is a very high-yielding strain that flowers in about 8 weeks. The difficulty level is moderate, so keep that in mind if you’re a newbie. The plant prefers moderate to warm environments, between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pineapple Express grows well both indoors and out. However, one thing you have to be mindful of if growing outdoors is that this plant doesn’t tolerate heavy winds very well – it does require protection. The buds are so big that the stems can snap easily.
What Does Pineapple Express Taste Like?
Pineapple Express has a flavor that’s likely to surprise you if you’ve never tasted it before. There’s a very, very clear pineapple note that is somewhat unexpected in its uncanniness. There’s also a hint of pine, along with a subtle twist of lemon. Overall, it’s a fantastic flavor that keeps people coming back for more – along with, of course, its dreamy high. As for its aroma, there’s a bit more funk, and some earthy undertones.
