What is Pineapple Express? 

Even without the cult-classic movie, Pineapple Express would have well-deserved recognizability. This hard-hitting, sativa-dominant hybrid is a cross between the potent and flavorful forces of both Trainwreck and Hawaiian strains. Trainwreck is a powerful hybrid strain that is known for its happy-high and soaring THC levels. The Hawaiian strain is noted for its intense tropical flavors and sweetness along with its tendency to give off positive energy and spirited, clear-headed elevation. Together, the two strains produce a happy and euphoric high overall, along with a mellow increase in energy.

Appearance, Aroma, Flavor

The appearance of the Pineapple Express strain slightly resembles an indica, with exceptionally densely packed buds that are long and tapered like the shape of a classic sativa. The flower is often in shades of deep greens and sometimes tinges of burnt oranges and burgundy reds. The sweet and delectable aroma transports you into a visualization of being caught up in the tropics. Many can recognize this strain just by its fruity, citrusy aroma. The taste of Pineapple Express is likeness to pineapple (of course) and other tropical fruits with hints of pine and cedar. 


While the movie made the Pineapple Express strain to be a couch-locking super bud, it won’t turn you into a goofy, beat-boxing Bill Hader. Instead, the strain strikes a balance between body and mind. A lot of patients experience highs that tend to begin in the head, with a happy kick and a positive sense of well-being. The strain’s of playful nature and upbeat attitude make it excellent for social gatherings and plenty of long, playful conversations while it’s focused characteristics make it a great choice for getting through your daytime activities.
