A longtime Netherlands favorite, this strain became a “movie star” when featured in the James Franco and Seth Rogan movie of the same name. Recalling a tropical day with umbrella-stirrer garnished drinks, Pineapple Express is a 60/40 Sativa-dominant hybrid with THC concentration that can hit above 24%. With its tantalizing tropical taste and potent high it’s easy to see why people continue to say “Aloha” to Pineapple Express!
Pineapple Express is a masterful hybrid combining two potent, flavorful forces. Its parents are Trainwreck and the landrace Sativa Hawaiian strain.
Open a bag of Pineapple Express, and you’re lifted away to a tropical paradise! With distinct overtones of fresh-cut pineapple and mango, and undertones of pine and green apple, it’s considered to be a smooth, sweet strain that’s delightful to smoke and savor.
Densely packed buds are long and tapered, with olive leaves accented by tinges of burnt oranges, burgundy reds and amber-orange pistils that curl towards the sun. These buds are delightfully “sugary” and rich in trichomes.
Never fear – this strain is not as insane as depicted in the 2008 movie! That said, its Sativa dominance delivers a calm, cerebral high that is uplifting and may have you feeling energized from the first inhale. Promoting tranquility of spirit with a pleasant high, this strain is often recommended for depression, anxiety and PTSD. Pineapple Express is also recommended for migraines, minor pains and muscle issues. Please note: Dry mouth and eyes can accompany a session – always stay hydrated as when using any strain. But supreme versatility, and the fact that this strain is strong without being overwhelming, makes it “All Aboard!” for Pineapple Express!
