pineapple express kush
Though this strain has been around for a while, there’s no question why it suddenly became a household name a few years back. We’re all familiar with its soar to popularity because of James Franco and Seth Rogen film by the same name, but did you know that Pineapple Express kush had been a fan favorite in the Netherlands for half a decade before the movie’s release? If famous pot smokers and the Dutch think it’s a winner, then it’s a winner. A cross between Trainwreck and Hawaiian, this tropical bud is a smooth and sweet smoke that will certainly have you chasing it at least once.
Breeders at Barney’s Farm rarely turn out anything but gold, so it’s no wonder that this potent strain is another hit. The THC on this strain hits above 24% regularly and boasts aromas likened to a fruit stand. With overtones of fresh cut pineapple and mango, and undertones of green apple and pine, this tropical bud will have your senses tantalized upon opening the bag. If the scents weren’t enough, the flavors are similar and super strong. These olive colored, rock-shaped buds taste like a fresh slice of pineapple with a substantial pine aftertaste.
Though not nearly as intense as the movie would have you believe, it won’t turn you into a rambling, beat-boxing Bill Hader, this buzz is powerful in its own right and will have you floating through the air in no time. This mild body numb is accompanied by a heady, happy high that leaves users feeling creative and talkative. As your body relaxes into the high your mind will start to focus and feel productive. The energy this bud provides makes it easy to get through a short to-do list.
Pineapple Express kush may seem like it’s just for the recreational user, but rest assured it has medical benefits out the wazoo. This calming, yet somehow stimulating, bud has the ability to lift the mood and heighten productivity making it perfect for anyone suffering from depression, chronic stress, anxiety, fatigue, or generalized restlessness. As it has minor sedative properties, Pineapple Express kush is also good for mild pains and inflammations as well as migraines and muscle tightness.
This tall growing plant is a great indoor/outdoor plant, but typically does better indoors with controlled temperatures. If you are cultivating inside be sure to give Pineapple Express kush lots of space, as her branches tend to reach far and wide. The yields of this strain are typically high and it is considered an auto-flowering strain. Expect your perfect harvest at around 7 to 8 weeks, or if you are growing outdoors, mid-October.
If you find yourself with the motivation to get up and get moving, this is a great bud to take on an adventure. This hard-hitting hybrid is a long-lasting, energetic strain that meshes perfectly with a busy schedule or creative endeavors. If you are the type who likes to just smoke at home, this is a great dinner and movie pairing.
Medical Benefits of Pineapple Express
Probably the most severe medical condition that Pineapple Express kush has been known to be of immense help with, is clinical depression. Due to its uplifting and energizing nature, for those who are suffering from a mental condition, especially one that can be as debilitating and fatigue-inducing as depression, Pineapple Express has a way of getting its patients re-motivated and excited for going out and getting things done.
Additionally, it sets its consumers into good spirits, making it not only a wonderful strain for increasing energy, but also for calming the mind and simultaneously bringing in positive thoughts. Others who are dealing with anxiety, stress and even PTSD, have also found relief from this fruity and tropical strain. If you are experiencing a mental condition and are looking towards this powerful hybrid for relief, it is important to know your limits of consumption and only intake an amount that you know is a safe level for you. Over consuming any strain of marijuana while handling a mental disorder, can lead to a worsening in stress, anxiety and even paranoia.
In addition to mental conditions, Pineapple Express kush is valuable for those managing chronic pain, or just moderate to mild pains. If you are consuming it for these reasons, a large dose may be in order to feel the full extent of its effects. Consuming edibles, concentrates, candies, live resins and shatters, are all ways that ensure a higher dosage, but are still convenient for use.
Possible Side Effects of Pineapple Express
Pineapple Express kush is not considered an insanely potent strain when compared to other strains on the marijuana market, so because of this, its adverse effects are considerably more mild. The most commonly reported side effects after consuming this cannabis, are dry mouth, dry eyes, or a feeling of dehydration. To assist with any sensations of dry mouth or dehydration, it is vital to drink plenty of hydrating fluids before, during and after your high, just to make sure the likelihood of this lessens. Dry eyes is solvable by keeping a bottle of moisturizing eyedrops on hand, which can be purchased for an affordable price at your local drug store. Other than what is listed above, any other side effects are much less likely, if not rare, so Pineapple Express is considered a fairly risk-free strain to consume.
