Pineapple Express combines the potent and flavorful forces of parent strains Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The smell is likened to fresh apple and mango, with a taste of pineapple, pine, and cedar. This hard-hitting sativa provides a long-lasting energetic buzz perfect for productive afternoons and creative escapes.
The Result: As Saul Said, “It’s almost a shame to smoke it. It’s like killing a unicorn … with, like, a bomb.”
Type: Sativa-Dominant Hybrid

Stoned Meter: 9
Average THC: 19.6%
Appearance: Similar in appearance to one of her fast-track parents, Pineapple Express bears a striking resemblance to Trainwreck. Laced in trichomes with prominent hues of lime-like yellow, these flowers radiate a bright green, near fluorescent shine. Provided it’s your lucky day, you might even get a nug that looks like a pineapple in your sack.
Consistency: Like butter, Pineapple Express breaks apart easily by hand and her shredded flower makes for a tasty blunt. For those in search of a more symmetrically burning joint, I would suggest trying a grinder.
Scent: Boasting a terpene-rich profile of tropical fruit, the Pineapple Express aroma has its own therapeutic value. Relaxing, inviting, and ready to please, just a whiff of this strain makes the mind spin with ecstasy.
Taste: Pineapple Express smacks of Lemon Meringue Pie with a hint of pineapple frosting. Strong yet sweet, with a flavorful citrus exhale.
Effect: A perfect early morning surf strain, the Pineapple Express’ high inspires most. Similar to a cup of high-octane coffee, this genetic mashup makes a great wake and bake cheerleader.
Strain Background: We’ve covered its lore and namesake, and with great renown comes great risk. If a grower has an uppity, Hawaiian strain, he’ll market and sell it as Pineapple Express for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, this means no cut of Pineapple Express will be the same as the other. On the bright side, odds are, if the grower knows what’s good for him, he won’t name this baby after Hollywood’s most legendary stoners if he knows what’s good for him.
