Pineapple Express

The Scoop

When Seth Rogen and James Franco fired up Sony’s 2008 cult classic – Pineapple Express – it cultivated a fictitious star-crossed strain that first blazed its way into theaters … then dispensaries. Over the past 8 years, cultivators and breeders alike have sought to procreate the Holy Grail of Hollyweed. Crossing Trainwreck & Hawaiian, the most pervasive cut of the Sativa-heavy Pineapple Express, for their own amusement.

More About This Strain

Equal parts Trainwreck and Hawaiian, with the occasional Sour Diesel cut thrown in for good measure, most versions of Pineapple Express will likely retain their own unique characteristics. Uplifting, energetic effects.  Recommended for anxiety, migraines and chronic stress. A perfect early morning surf strain, the Pineapple Express’ high inspires most. Similar to a cup of high-octane coffee, this genetic mashup makes a great wake and bake cheerleader.


We’ve covered its lore and namesake, and with great renown comes great risk. If a grower has an uppity, Hawaiian strain, he’ll market and sell it as Pineapple Express for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, this means no cut of Pineapple Express will be the same as the other. On the bright side, odds are, if the grower knows what’s good for him, he won’t name this baby after Hollywood’s most legendary stoners if he knows what’s good for him.

  • Pineapple Express smacks of Lemon Meringue Pie with a hint of pineapple frosting. Strong yet sweet, with a flavorful citrus exhale.
  • Boasting a terpene-rich profile of tropical fruit, the Pineapple Express aroma has its own therapeutic value. Relaxing, inviting, and ready to please, just a whiff of this strain makes the mind spin with ecstasy.
  • Similar in appearance to one of her fast-track parents, Pineapple Express bears a striking resemblance to Trainwreck. Laced in trichomes with prominent hues of lime-like yellow, these flowers radiate a bright green, near fluorescent shine. Provided it’s your lucky day, you might even get a nug that looks like a pineapple in your sack.
  • Like butter, Pineapple Express breaks apart easily by hand and her shredded flower makes for a tasty blunt. For those in search of a more symmetrically burning joint, I would suggest trying a grinder.
