There’s nothing like a good sativa for a wake and bake review. Today, it’s Pineapple Express, from Wickenburg Alternative Medicine’s new location in El Mirage (WAM).
According to Leafly, Pineapple Express’ parents are Trainwreck and Hawaiian. I love these train names, so I was curious how they came about. However, when I went to research it, the results were all over the map. Here are a few:
- While Pineapple Express may be a cross of Trainwreck and Hawaiian according to Leafly, that’s not for sure what it was originally. One story says it was grown by pineapple fields in Hawaii, along the route of an actual train named the Pineapple Express.
- Some say they made it up in the movie, Pineapple Express. It never existed before and growers and dealers started selling fruity-smelling weed, calling it Pineapple Express.
- A seed company called G13 Labs has it listed as a cross between Big Bud x Skunk x Ruderalis.
- Another seed company called Amsterdam Marijuana Seeds says it’s a mix of White Widow x Limoncello Haze x Strawberry Ice genetics.
Conclusion: Who knows! I was done researching these confusing stories and ready to move on to my experience with this strain.
The bud felt spongy when I pressed on it and it did not smell like pineapples. To me, it smelled lemony and didn’t have an overpowering scent. Once we ground it up, in the GR8TR grinder from Kannastör, the pile was almost yellow in color. We wondered if that’s why it was called Pineapple. When we rolled our morning joint and lit it up, it tasted citrusy, with some cedar. Overall, to the senses, I was beginning to wonder if it could be that great.
It wasn’t long before I felt focused, uplifted and motivated. I had my morning coffee by my side for my dry mouth and all of my aches and pains were melting away into tingling sensations.
Over the next hour, I was lost in the internet, reading all these stories about this strain. Then, I refocused on writing this review, still alert and ready to tackle this day.
For being primarily a sativa strain according to Leafly, it’s said to relieve stress, depression and pain. For me, this morning, it was great for pain and focus. I had no negative side effects.
Thanks again to WAM for the great strain to review!
