Launched into infamy as a result of the eponymous 2007 film “Pineapple Express”, this is a strain that has made its way into popular culture and is going to stay there. While Pineapple Express inspired an entire full-length feature film, it would be a disservice to merely base its popularity on a movie. Indeed, this strain has been popular long before the 2007 film emerged. A by-product of parent strains Trainwreck and Hawaiian; Pineapple Express might become the dopest dope you’ve ever smoked.
Growers should likely expect an average yield of around 37 grams (1.3 ounces) per square foot and can rest assured that Pineapple Express does well both indoors and outdoors. As might be expected, this plant requires a tropical climate, or as close to tropical as possible with consistently warm, humid conditions. Pineapple Express plants should be ready to harvest in mid-September, while an indoor grow will take approximately 7-8 weeks.
Pineapple Express is popular for its ability to provide users with full body pain relief, without any of the energy draining side effects of other numbing strains. While the CBD levels of pineapple express are low, the high from this strain is also slightly longer lasting than many other strains, making it an effective and economical form of pain relief.
Slight tingling in the extremities may be experienced by some users, as well as eyes as red as the devils dick, and a dry throat. Other uncommon side effects to watch out for are psychedelic distortions or a trippy experience. Also there is a minimal but notable risk you might find yourself in an extremely violent gunfight with your local drug lord if you smoke this.
