About Pineapple Express
“Pineapple Express,” believe it or not, is actually a meteorological term. It indicates strong moisture currents off of Hawaii that extend over the Pacific to the North American coast. In the mid-latitudes of the world, suffice it to say, water vapor is a big deal. Nowadays, the term is more directly associated with the 2008 stoner comedy of the same name, starring Seth Rogen and James Franco. However, the film got its name from the strain, which I guess got its name from … Hawaiian water vapor.
Pineapple Express provides a great respite for a busy mind, promoting focus and heightened clarity. It pairs great with laid-back creative tasks like writing and studying, as well as reading, fishing, crafts, and yoga. Pineapple Express makes a great afternoon strain, whether you’re knocking out some work or letting your creative juices flow. Some dry mouth aside, the strain offers a great entry-point for novices that don’t know where to start when it comes to their bud.
For growers,purple pineapple express grows in heavy nugs shaped like popcorn. It flowers in just over 7 weeks. To increase the strain’s potency, experienced growers recommend “supercropping” the strain. If you didn’t know, this means using bush-style growing techniques, setting up lights that are at least 600W, and regularly topping the plants. When done, the plant is dense, light green, and subtly purple-tinted.
