Pineapple Express

Due to Seth Rogans infamous stoner-movie Pineapple Express Medical Marijuana, this marijuana cultivar gained popularity throughout the world in 2008. While this strain does not necessarily live up to the hype the movie portrays, it still manages to offer a mild and nice body-numbing buzz, which is something many Florida Medical Marijuana patients are searching for.

This strain is not too hard to grow, flourishing in both indoor and outdoor facilities. The Pineapple Express strain flowers in about seven to nine weeks and can yield up to 19 ounces per meter. 

If you find yourself searching for a little motivation to get up and get moving, this is a great strain to choose. It is a long-lasting, energetic strain that works perfectly with a busy schedule or creative projects. If you are the type who likes to just smoke at home, this is a great dinner and movie pairing.

Lineage

Pineapple express is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain, blending together the strains Hawaiian and Trainwreck. 

Potency

Pineapple Express’s THC Potency typically ranges between 17-27%.

Looks

The Pineapple Express strain grows tall and has a thick center of orange pistils and resinous trichomes. The leaves of this strain are deep green and protrude from the sticky resinous center. The flowers are usually covered in trichomes, with a sage-like green shade with occasional hazy yellow colors separated by the amber-orange hairs of the pistils.

Smell

The plant has a very strong fragrance which smells of orange, fresh apple, citrus fruit, and of course, pineapple.

Flavor

Pineapple Express combines the potent and flavorful notes of its parent strains Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The taste is similar to the smell of fresh apples and mangos, with a taste of pineapple, cedar, and pine.

Terpene Profile

While each harvest of Pineapple Express is going to produce different amounts of terpenes, the most common ones found in this strain are:

  • Linalool 
  • Myrcene 
  • Pinene
  • Limonene
  • Caryophyllene 

The high amounts of myrcene terpene gives the aromas of tropical fruit, while caryophyllene is responsible for the woodsy scent. Linalool is known for its sweet aroma, and pinene offers an earthy pine tree flavor. Combined these result in a sweet, tropical, and piney flavor that many users have learned to love.
