Pineapple Express cannabis strain is a Sativa dominant hybrid that was made way before it was made famous by the stoner movie. This autoflowering variety has a genetic composition of 60%/30%/10% Sativa, Indica, and Ruderalis ratio that offers an energetic high that is complemented by a soothing body stone. This is a daytime weed that can be used in the workplace as long as you don’t get caught, as its plethora of cerebral effects, make it a very productive strain. The Pineapple auto strain THC level is measured at 20% with a CBD of 0.9%, which is much lower than its original strain, but it is still potent enough to offer a bevy of high that will still entertain and medicate cannabis enthusiasts of all ages!
Origin Of Pineapple Express Strain
This weed came into existence before the release of the cult movie classic of the same name. Originally from the Netherlands, it has been a long-time favorite of the Dutch, until it found its way to the US sometime in the early 2000s. Pineapple Express strain genetics is a product of crossing the pain-numbing Trainwreck weed with the Hawaiian landrace Sativa, throw in a Ruderalis and you get this autoflowering version of Pineapple Express!
Effects Of Pineapple Express Strain
Pineapple Express weed strain offers a dose of potent cerebral and physical body stone that is best consumed as an unwinding weed at the end of the day.

At the onset, a smooth head rush will send a little pressure in the temples as the user will start to feel euphoric. This opens the doors to being uplifted as they will be soaring up in ecstasy.

A mind-clearing focus will also allow the user to pay attention even to the most minute of details making it a great analytical strain. This cerebral party can go on for hours and it is best to make the most out of it and be productive while it lasts.
As the Indica will start to make its presence felt, a warm wave of relaxation will engulf the users’ entire body, their muscles and joints will start to loosen. Users will start to feel out of touch with reality at this point and all the cerebral effects will come to a halt. The mind is still very functional but the body is so heavy that the energy of the users is completely gone. This will not lead to any couch-lock but more of a lethargic high.
Medical Uses Of Pineapple Express Strain

Taste And Aroma Of Pineapple Express Strain
The sweet and tropical vibe of the Pineapple Express strain has that enticing appeal to users looking for a great tasting weed that promotes a profound cerebral and physical stone. The aroma from its buds is a mix of Pineapples and tropical fruits all rolled into one. As the heavy smoke touches the palate, a distinct earthiness delightfully greets the users as this blends with sweet pineapples.
Growing Pineapple Express Seeds
Pineapple Express is not an easy weed to grow especially if you live in the northern hemisphere where it is typically cool. These plants prefer to be growing in warm to hot and sunny weather. Indoor cultivation is best for those living in cooler climates as the grower can mimic a tropical environment for the plant to thrive. Also, the plants are usually tall, but with the addition of the ruderal in their genes, they have become medium-sized plants. There still is a need to top them every so often to regulate their upward growth. They will be harvestable in 9 to 10 weeks and produce a modest amount of yield at 200 to 600 grams of great-tasting Pineapple Express buds!
