According to actor and comedian Seth Rogen, the Pineapple Express cultivar didn’t exist until after the 2008 movie of the same name brought the name into the spotlight. Inspired by the film, growers took it upon themselves to create a potent cultivar that the film described as “the dopest dope.”G13 Labs claims it originated the strain in the mid-2000s, selecting Trainwreck and Hawaiian as parent genetics, and the hybrid soon proliferated among California medical marijuana dispensaries.
However, many growers and 11 seed banks each aimed to create the “true” Pineapple Express. As such, multiple variations exist in the current marketplace.Despite the nebulous marketing and inconsistent reported effects, most cuts of Pineapple Express are sought-after cultivars noted for their fluffy, lean flowers that shine with a lime and yellow coloring. Consumers select Pineapple Express for a tropical, citrus aroma that exudes from its typically higher limonene content. Growers will have an easy time growing Pineapple Express indoors, and can expect a high yield between 55-65 days.
Pineapple Express is effective in treating mood and anxiety disorders, helping patients to be energetic. Pineapple Express has a THC content ranges between 14% to 26.5%.
