Pineapple Express Strain
Pineapple Express is an enormously popular strain of marijuana. It is a 60% Sativa dominant hybrid and is a potent cross between Train wreck and Hawaiian. It has a wonderful smell that is often described as a mix of mango and apples, and a taste reminiscent of pine and cedar. This is a strain best used in the morning time and not the afternoon due to its stimulating effects. Pineapple Express is an excellent strain for social occasions and a very well-balanced hybrid. It is a favorite among artists and the perfect strain if you need to get a creative task completed, as it will provide energy and expand your awareness in a myriad of different ways. Pineapple Express has a large variance in terms of THC levels, with reports coming in between 17-26%, but levels probably average around 20%. There is currently debate over whether the 2008 film “Pineapple Express” was named after this strain. But it most probably was, as there is no other reason for its name. It is most often described as a moderately powerful strain without being completely overwhelming. Pineapple Express has dark green leaves and is a sticky strain that is difficult to break up without a good grinder. Pineapple Express is a creeper, meaning that the effects creep up on users over time. For this reason, it is probably not the best introductory strain for novice marijuana users. This is also quite a long- lasting strain of marijuana that delivers quite a fantastic cerebral experience.
Why do Patients Use Pineapple Express?
From a medical standpoint, Pineapple Express gives users a feeling of mental calm that can be very effective in treating mood and anxiety disorders, helping patients to be more fully present and energetic. Pineapple Express can be found in lots of medical dispensaries along the West Coast and pretty much anywhere that marijuana is legal. One area where this strain does not excel is in the treatment of sleeping disorders. And although this strain isn’t as good as some more Indica-dominant hybrids in treating physical pain, its head high can actually be useful in distracting users from the acute perception of chronic pain.
