In the movie of the same name that grossed over 100 million dollars worldwide, it was called “the dopest dope I’ve ever smoked” and that it smelled like “God’s Vagina”, but does Pineapple Express live up to the legend?
It’s easily one of the greatest stoner movies of all time and perhaps the only stoner “action” movie ever made. But many people wonder if Pineapple Express is truly the dopest dope, and did it in fact exist before the movie came out?
There are those that claim that Pineapple Express existed before the movie came out, but most people including Seth Rogan himself, claim that it was a made up strain until after the movie was released. But the big question is, is it the “dopest dope I’ve ever smoked”? Well, for the most part the answer to that question is “NO”.
The original meaning of a Pineapple Express is meteorological. It refers to a weather pattern that originates in the tropics and beelines for the north. Being a former Alaskan and Seattleite, I’ve encountered many a Pineapple Express and it always comes with a lot of rain and wind and warmer air.
From a marijuana strain standpoint, Pineapple Express doesn’t pack that much of a punch. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing if you are a true cannabis connoisseur. It’s THC levels are usually moderate, say between 12%-22% where many marijuana strains are reaching into the upper 20s and even some low 30s.
A cross breed of “Hawaiian” and “Train Wreck”, Pineapple Express is high in the terpenes Myrcene and Pinene. Myrcene has earthy, sleepy, indica like qualities and is associated with foods like mangoes and lemon grass. Pinene gives it it’s piney flavor and aroma, and you will get a good citrus bump on our pallet upon exhalation.
Pineapple Express is generally a 60/40 Sativa dominant hybrid. So you’ll kind of get the best of both worlds with this strain. It is pretty clear headed, but also gives you a bit of that “stoney” feeling, so it’s good for everything from sitting around the house, to going on long walks in the woods with a half a bag of Doritos and some cottage cheese.
The buds themselves are kind of funny looking. They are pretty tight and compressed and kind of look like green popcorn or that stuff you’d put in a box when you wanted to ship something fragile. But when you crack them open and give them a wiff, Pineapple Express is quite pleasing. Earthy, yet citrusy aromas and piney, citrusy flavors make for a great sensory experience.
This is a great day weed. It will not knock you on your ass and is a very functional high. Now as most of you know, every strain can be different depending on the grower, so obviously some level of caution is necessary when consuming any strain, but for the most part Pineapple Express is actually a strain that you don’t need to be afraid of getting deeper into the pool with.
