Pineapple Express is a euphoric sativa-dominant strain that is sure to get laughs.


About Pineapple Express

A cross of Trainwreck and Hawaiian, the insanely popular sativa-dominant Pineapple Express was created after the favorite cult movie of the same name.

This strain is sativa dominant. Expect a strong effect as the THC content of Pineapple Express has been measured at up to 27 percent. Meanwhile, the CBD is almost zero, so benefits rely on THC, not CBD.


When you open up a bag of Pineapple Express, expect light green cone-shaped flowers that possess thick auburn or dark orange pistils and a generous dusting of trichomes. The buds are the color of olives and shaped like rocks.


Cannabis enthusiasts who have sampled Pineapple Express describe the strain as highly energetic and largely euphoric, inundating those who use it with a giggly and friendly effect. After the "high" settles, expect to feel optimistic, happy, and incredibly calm.

The experience of smoking Pineapple Express is mellow, giving you a relaxed brain and encouraging you to become talkative. At the same time, your body will become tingly and energizing. Be aware that in addition to the energy and euphoria, some people experience paranoia with Pineapple Express.

The buzz from Pineapple Express is powerful, but not as much as you may think based on the movie. Expect a mild body numb that also includes a happy, heady high. You will feel boosted to your talkative and creative nature. The energy from the strain is perfect for taking care of your to-do list quickly.

This is a popular strain for those in search of relief from nausea or pain and other medical marijuana purposes. Those with mild inflammation or pain will appreciate the strain's minor sedative properties that help with these issues. It can also help with muscle tightness and migraines. The bud can lift your mood and boost productivity, helping those with chronic stress, depression, fatigue, anxiety, or generalized restlessness.

Aroma and Flavor

As one is likely to expect, this strain's gorgeous flowers possess a sweet pineapple aroma and an even sweeter flavor that blends pineapple, mango, and citrus fruit flavors. The aromas will probably make you feel as if you are at a fruit stand. In addition to the mango and pineapple overtones, expect pine and green apple undertones.

Smoking Pineapple Express will give you a smooth, sweet experience. The flavors are similar to the aromas and also incredibly strong. Expect the buds to taste like pineapple and give you an aftertaste of pine.

Other Information to Know

Ideally, you will use Pineapple Express during the afternoon. It is a good option for an adventure if you want some motivation to get moving. The long-lasting and energetic nature of the strain works well with your creative endeavors and even the busiest schedules. Alternatively, you can also use it to relax at home with a movie.

Despite the fact that Pineapple Express shares the name with a movie from 2008, this strain has been around in the Netherlands for half a decade before that. It has been a favorite in that country the whole time, with that popularity since expanding to other countries as well.

If you plan to grow Pineapple Express, you can do so indoors or outdoors, although you should expect better results in a climate-controlled indoor location. Just make sure you set up plenty of space for this strain as the branches will extend far and wide. The strain is auto-flowering, offering convenience during the growing process.

After around seven or eight weeks of growth, your Pineapple Express will be ready to deliver a high harvest. If you grow the plant outside, expect to harvest in mid-October.
