Pineapple is an evenly-balanced hybrid strain that was created through years of inbreeding a phenotype of Ed Rosenthal’s Super Bud (ERSB). As a result, the formerly indica-dominant strain has gained distinct sativa characteristics, giving cannabis consumers around the world a unique hybrid whose astonishing aroma and flavor cannot be denied.
With moderate THC levels around 15% and 22% (and 1% CBD on average), the strain provides a once-in-a-lifetime type of high that is comparable to stepping outside your bodily shell and experiencing your actions from a third-person perspective while being utterly happy, focused, and stress-free.
Appearance-wise, Pineapple reveals its indica-driven features with its sturdy structure and bulbous buds that look like an actual pineapple fruit. If you examine the buds closely, you will notice an alluring layer of the crystal-like coating where all therapeutic cannabinoids and aromatic terpenes are contained.
Speaking of which, the Pineapple cannabis strain is a true gift for all flavor chasers. Once you open the jar filled with your fresh nuggets, you’ll immediately spot the exotic aroma which can be described as a combination of pineapple, bubblegum, and chestnut.
Upon exhale, Pineapple releases the wealth of tropical flavors underlined by citrusy notes and delicate sweetness.
When smoking your Pineapple buds, expect some decent relaxation and a mildly euphoric state of mind, accompanied by a noticeable energy boost. This strain won’t make you hard-focused on analytical tasks, but instead, it will come in handy for creative jobs where a person needs to link two seemingly distant concepts and outshine other people during brainstorming different ideas.
The unique genetics of Pineapple make this strain ideal both for social meetups and those only-me afternoons, as these exotic buds promote introspection and stave off stress like nothing else.
Medical marijuana patients may find relief in Pineapple when fighting chronic stress, anxiety, depression, pain, nausea, and fatigue. Surprisingly, the strain doesn’t induce a heavy case of munchies, which is great news for those who abstain from using weed regularly because of their food cravings.
As with most marijuana strains, overindulging in Pineapple’s buds may result in a dry mouth, dry, red eyes, and dizziness. Whether or not you will experience anxiety after consuming this strain depends on the THC content of your current batch. Strains scoring lower with THC levels usually allow cannabis users to avoid racing thoughts and paranoia.
The Pineapple cannabis strain is fairly easy to grow. Given its Pakistani origins, it grows well in hotter and sunnier climates. It can reach 65 inches in height and it takes between 56 and 65 days to flower and be ready to harvest. When growing indoors, you can expect 1.48 oz of weed per square feet.
