The Pineapple Express marijuana strain gained massive popularity a number of years ago with the 2008 Blockbuster release of "Pineapple Express", featuring Seth Rogan and James Franco. Don't be fooled by the representation in the film though. In reality, its effects are nothing like what you see in the movie. Rather than being extreme, Pineapple Express is a smooth and balanced strain. 

With this strain, expect a mild body numb with a heady and happy high. And don't worry about getting couch-locked - while Pineapple Express  relaxes you into a chill high, you will be washed over with a wave of mental clarity and focus. Creative juices will start to flow and you may just find yourself talking your smoke buddies ear off. This is a great strain for social events and if you want a little skip to your jump as you do your day-to-day errands.

Pineapple Express Growing Tips

Though Pineapple Express can be grown both indoors and outdoors, typically indoor grows with controlled temperatures for optimal yield. If growing indoors, be sure to provide each plant with optimal space for the branches to reach far and wide. 

Feeding the grow silica-based products will help to keep your stems healthy and sturdy enough to support heavier buds. Further, in order to maximize the fruity terpenes that Pineapple Express is known for, grow the plants in live soil.

On average, Pineapple Express has high yields and is considered an auto-flowering strain. Harvest is approximately 7-8 weeks.


What Users and Growers are Saying about Pineapple Express

"Absolutely one of my favourite strains, I love the taste on the exhale which hints the old Colombian of the 60's. One good puff does the trick, at least for me anyway. Just be prepared to get energized within minutes forgetting about anything that's ailing you." - RaoulDuke4 (

"Really happy, light and uplifting high that left me motivated to work, but at the same time a nice mellow fuzzy feeling that was calming. This is a great day time strain that won't give you any couch-lock of physical heaviness. Clearheaded yet slightly buzzy high." - radlegend (

"As a first time smoker, this was a great experience. I started out feeling relaxed. Stress and negative thoughts just melted away. Then my body felt amazing. I felt about 15 years young. When people say they want to relax, this is what I imagine. This is a different high than alcohol, nicotine or caffeine. It doesn't feel as harsh. It actually feels like medicine." -usadave85 (
