Aroma and Taste: Often likened to a fruit ball, this strain is a tropical delight, dominated by pineapple and mango and completed with beautiful citrus, green apple, and pine undertones. It has a very sweet and replete, yet fresh taste that tantalizes rather than overwhelms.
Trivia: This strain’s place in history and pop culture was cemented by the iconic stoner movie, “Pineapple Express,” starring James France and Seth Rogen. However, it had actually been popular for a good few years in the Netherlands before the movie came out.
The aforementioned credentials are as big of a statement as you can get, and even though the type of highs we see in the eponymous movie are simply out of this world, Pineapple Express lives up to those credentials and then some.
This strain is famous for uplifting the mood like a trampoline. The initial state is characterized by a surge of carefree, all-around joyous energy, accompanied by a desire to talk about seemingly anything. This mental buzz translates very well into creative endeavors, especially as the initial rush gradually fades into a milder, yet focused state of mind that has people feeling quite productive and engrossed into their activities. In that sense, it’s a great afternoon strain, a perfect hiking and beach buddy, and a safe bet to watch movies with as you drift into the later stages of the high.
While not its strongest trait, Pineapple Express’s medicinal benefits are still definitely there, especially on the mental side, as it provides a respite from stress, anxiety, depression, general apathy, and the likes. The munchies are strong with this one, so it can go a long way with people who suffer from a lack of appetite.
