Strain Spotlight: Pineapple Express

Know About Pineapple Express

When you first hear the words Pineapple Express, you might think of the 2008 stoner-comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco bearing that whimsical moniker, but it’s also a highly popular cannabis strain. (Though, as Rogan shared in a 2014 interview with The Cannabist, the mere existence of the strain is, in fact, due the movie.)

Pineapple Express is the grand result of the sativa Hawaiian, and the hybrid strain, Trainwreck. As assumed by its name, it has a tropical-like taste, with hints of pineapple, mango, apple, and other fruity flavors, thanks to the presence of terpenes like myrcene and linalool.

A sativa-dominant hybrid, Pineapple Express is great for generating a creative buzz, encouraging stronger cerebral effects rather than a hard body high. It’s also equally well suited for social activities, and hanging at home alone, curled up with a good book.

The mood-boosting Pineapple Express can help with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and also alleviate mild body pain. All in all, it’s certainly a good, versatile strain to have on hand.

Find this strain at your nearest MedMen marijuana dispensary.
