Additional Information

Pineapple Express is a Sativa dominant hybrid whose popularity is nearly legendary thanks to the popular “stoner film” of the same name. While this strain may not be quite as mind blowing as the movie makes it out to be, Pineapple Express still offers a nice, mild, body-numbing buzz. The powerful cerebral effects are the number one reason Pineapple Express is chosen for medicinal purposes by patients. Aside from easing stress and anxiety, this hybrid can be great at lessening the symptoms of chronic depression as well. Pineapple Express is also chosen by those suffering from mild aches and pains but is not recommended for those suffering from severe pain. To a lesser degree it is also used to induce appetite and calm nausea.

Pineapple Express is the beautiful byproduct of the Trainwreck and Hawaiian strains. This sativa-dominant hybrid's popularity stems mostly from the popular film Pineapple Express, starring two of TheNug's favorite celebrity smokers, Seth Rogan and James Franco.
