In 2008, the Pineapple Express depicted by the James Franco and Seth Rogan film was an ultrapotent super bud. The real life version? A great strain, but not nearly as intense. Pineapple Express is an upbeat flower with a smooth, tropical taste. A charming cerebral high coupled with an easy bodily relaxation and scrumptious aroma make this strain one of the most popular hybrids around.

Strain details

Pineapple Express is a cross between Trainwreck and a Hawaiian landrace strain. Trainwreck is a powerful hybrid known for its happy high and soaring THC levels.

Hawaiian strains are thought to be mostly sativa and provide a spirited clear-headed elevation. Sativa-dominant, Pineapple Express provides a happy and euphoric high overall, along with a mellow increase in energy.

Like Trainwreck, Pineapple Express can be quite potent. The THC levels in this bud often reach over 20 percent, making it appropriate for those with some cannabis experience.

Growers can expect a moderate yield a fairly speedy flowering time from this bud. Most harvest between 53 and 62 days.

While Pineapple Express does make for a delightful experience, the aroma of this bud is the most likely to impress. A strong, floral fragrance tantalizes the nose. As the name might suggest, it offers a strong tropical feel. Notes of pineapple, wood, and a slight sharpness make up the aromatic base of this flower.

The Pineapple Express of the films may have been a couch-locking super bud, but the strain in real life is a different beast. The high tends to begin in the head, with a happy kick and a positive sense of well-being. Though sativa-dominant, the strain strikes a balance between body and mind.

After a few puffs, you may find yourself floating off into a dreamy but pleasant headspace. Along that vein, this strain is thought to encourage creative thinking, making it an excellent choice for anyone with an artistic profession or hobby.

Many consumers report that it also provides a smooth and gentle bodily relaxation, easing signs of physical stress.

Pineapple Express is energizing enough to be a daytime strain. Those that are a little more canna-savvy may be able to wake n’ bake with this bud, but be prepared for some drowsiness later on down the road.

Like many high-THC strains, this one can stimulate appetite. Grab some friends and a bowl of snacks before breaking into this flavorful herb.
