Pineapple Express Information
When you get that first whiff of this famous ganja, you know immediately that what you’re smelling is something unique and distinctive, even if you have no idea what it is called. Once you realize its name is Pineapple Express, the answers all become too obvious. You just got a pungent smell of something fruity and floral, transporting you into a visualization of being caught up in the tropics, lying somewhere on a beach in Hawaii, with all your cares and worries melting away one by one for just that little moment. Because of how sweet and delectable Pineapple Express weed’s aroma is, you’re probably enticed by this exotic and intoxicating reefer and want to have a taste.
Your first hit reminds you of apples and tangerines, not necessarily sweet in flavor, but you can sense the hints of something fruity, citrusy and maybe even a little floral thrown in for extra good measure. On that first inhale, you’ll experience the fruitiness in its full expression, with a hint of pineapple left floating on your tongue long after the smoke has gone, sending your taste buds into a whirlwind of pleasure. When you breathe out, pine and woodsy tastes fill up your mouth first, then travelling to your nostrils, creating this delectable combination that is both humbling and grounding.
The Pineapple Express strain, appearance-wise, resembles an indica ever so slightly, with exceptionally densely packed buds that are long and tapered like the shape of a classic sativa. Just by having one look, it’s clear this potent strain is indeed a hybrid. Its long water leaves reach up high into the clouds, displaying shades of deep greens and sometimes tinges of burnt oranges and burgundy reds, a result if this strain had been cultivated in colder climates. The buds are sugary and crystalline, with a sagey, green shade that transforms in certain sections to a hazy yellow color, broken up by the amber-orange of the pistils that reach and curl towards the sun.
Pineapple Express Grow Info
Pineapple Express weed is moderate in difficulty to grow, meaning it is not fit for complete novices, but certainly it is possible to work your way up to effortlessly being able to cultivate this strain. Primarily, climate control is the main reason for its slight increase in difficulty, for Pineapple Express needs a uniquely balmy and warm climate to be able to flourish and thrive in; weather that mimics tropical conditions as closely as possible. On the bright side, it is a strain that is astonishingly resistant to mold, powdery mildew, bugs, pests, diseases and other disturbances, keeping its maintenance in that spectrum on the down low.
Pineapple Express is a tall growing cannabis strain, so if you are cultivating this girl indoors, make sure to have ample space for her branches to reach up high. Indoor grown Pineapple Express can blossom with just about any growing method including hydroponics or soil grown. Pineapple Express is a high yielding strain, with successful indoor grows typically promising around 18 ounces per square meter, and outdoor grows at around 19 ounces per plant. The flowering period of Pineapple Express weed is around 7-8 weeks, with the ideal harvest time for outdoor grown crops hitting around mid-October.
Pineapple Express Effects
Although we are aware of how insane the 2008 film Pineapple Express made this strain out to be, this cannabis is not nearly as strong as depicted, and certainly will not leave you dysfunctional or acting plain stupid. Instead, you can expect quite the contrary, with its potential to bring introspection and hefty cerebral effects, continuing all the way down to your body, which will fill right up with blissful relaxation, yet an urge to carry on. This hybrid truly is a quintessential balance, keeping its user within the happy medium of a totally creative spirit that is downright ready to journey out on an adventure, to a thought provoking bookworm that just wants to keep it all in.
Regardless of what goes on with your mind, Pineapple Express weed will be body numbing, making any pains or aches you might be having physically quickly melt away, all while keeping the mind sharp and concentrated. Not ideal for a morning pre-work smoke, Pineapple Express can sometimes leave you feeling a tad bit too spacey to function at the workplace, but right after you get home or even on a day off, if you need that good green stuff to act as a little pick-me-up, Pineapple Express is exactly the road you should turn down.
