What is Pineapple Express?

Pineapple Express is an insanely popular strain that’s classified as a well balanced sativa dominant hybrid, boasting a ratio of 60:40, sativa to indica.


Even though the Pineapple Express strain has a good amount of indica genetics and traits, it’s still energizing and mentally uplifting, helping users focus and increase productivity. Then again, it also has a relaxing body high that helps ease the day’s tension and stress from your body.


With half the strain’s genetics coming from a totally pure strain that comes from 100% sativa parent origins. This is likely what gives Pineapple Express such strongly sativa effects.


Pineapple Express THC levels typically fall within the 16-26% range, so it’s high is strong and potent. If you’re looking to get super stoned on the popular movie strain, you’re virtually guaranteed to not be disappointed.


Totally natural and completely unlike any sort of government produced experiment strain, like in the Pineapple Express movie, the Pineapple Express strain leaves users tranquil and rejuvenated - -and with plenty of energy to go about their day on a positive note.


Origins of the Pineapple Express Strain


While the exact origins of the Pineapple Express strain are uncertain, the clone that was passed around as Pineapple Express first made its appearance in California medical dispensaries, but has since spread all of the world.

Today, Pineapple Express is usually the offspring Trainwreck x Hawaiian, two very potent and powerful parent strains.

Pineapple Express Aroma, Flavor, Appearance


Break open a Pineapple Express nug, and you’ll know right away you’re smelling something special and distinctive, even if you don’t know the name of the strain.


There’s a strongly pungent smell of sweet fruit and something floral, transplanting you right into a comfy lawn chair on a tropical beach, enjoying the warmth of the sun and the delicious bud in your bong.


All of your worries and stress are totally gone, even if it’s only for a moment.


Because how sweet and ambrosial the aroma of Pineapple Express is, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone who wouldn’t be drawn in by the tropical, exotic green and want to have a taste of that intoxicating reefer.


Take a hit, and you’ll be immediately reminded of apples and citrus, with subtle sweet-floral notes that linger on the tongue.


That first inhale is all fruitiness, with a pineapple aftertaste that stays on your tongue long after you’ve exhaled your hit.


When you do exhale, pine and cedar re-awaken your taste buds, and travel to your nose, creating an incredible combination of the senses that is both energizing and grounding, uplifting and relaxing.

When it comes to appearance, the Pineapple Express strain looks a bit like an indica flower, with its super dense buds that have the classic sativa length and taper.


The buds are crystalline and sugary, with a sage-green shade that carries sections of a burnt-gold color. The bud coloration is broken up by amber-orange pistils that reach their tendrils and twist up toward the sky.  


 Effects of Pineapple Express



While we all know the 2008 movie Pineapple Express made this strain out to be way more potent and intense than it is.  Even though it’s nowhere nearly as strong as the movie makes it seem, you still won’t be disappointed.


You can expect self-reflection and other hefty cerebral effects, with a high that travels down to your body. After just one hit, your mind gets uplifted and your body gets to relax.


It’s not one that’s great before work, because it does tend to give some spacy and distracted effects. But, Pineapple Express is a great choice for a socializing, creative, and energetic high with a strong body relaxation.
