A tingling relaxation in the extremities that helps users feel at ease, whatever their surroundings.

Medically, this strain’s feeling of mental calm can be very effective in treating mood and anxiety disorders, helping patients to be more fully present and energetic. And although this strain isn’t as good as some more indica-dominant hybrids in treating physical pain, its head high can actually be useful in distraction users from the acute perception of chronic pain.

This strain smells of fresh pineapple and mango mixed with less tropical scents like a hints of musk and some dank earthiness.

Plant & Origin
This strain combines the potent and flavorful forces of parent strains Trainwreck (hybrid) and Hawaiian (sativa). Depending on phenotype, plants can be relatively short, bushy or slightly taller and spindly, making them as easily grown indoors as out. Success outdoor cultivation requires a climate as close to tropical as possible, with consistently warm and semi-humid conditions. Pineapple Express plants are ready for harvest in mid to late October when grown outdoors and within 7 to 8 weeks when grown indoors. Moreover, this strain has a moderate yield. And growers can expect about 37 grams (or 1.3 ounces) per square foot of plant.
