Pineapple Express is one of the most famous cannabis strains among millennial smokers due to the success of the 2008 American comedy movie by Seth Rogen. Seth is often regarded as the new generation Cheech and Chong as his normalization of cannabis use in his movies partnered with his average joe demeanour has shown a more action /adventurous and comedic side to stoner movies.
Pineapple Express is made by crossing Hawaiian with Trainwreck. While Hawaiian strains have been hard to find in general, Trainwreck has been a predominant favourite in the Canadian market, mainly for its lethargy-inducing qualities.
The strain itself can provide between 16-26% THC. A wide range is there due to the complexity of growing this specific cross. The biggest growing issue stems from maintaining the optimal tropical climate that this cross adores.
Pineapple Express has a sweet and tropical aroma and taste to it, with a secondary whiff of citrus notes. Cured properly, this bud is not one to disappoint for flavour. Pineapple express is great by any consumption method, but the flavour really comes out in a dry herb vape or high-quality rosin.
While you may not get the high octane jolt of adrenaline pumping through your body while being chased and hunted by a highly motivated drug lord like Seth’s character does in the movie, you are more likely to have an uplifting and encouraging night of good memories in relaxation and bliss.
