What Are The Effects Of Consuming Pineapple Express?

By on October 20, 2021

Have you watched the stoner movie starring James Franco and Seth Rogen called Pineapple Express? Then you might have probably heard of the weed strain called the Pineapple Express. As a result of the movie’s success, this strain became one of the most popular strains, although it existed in the market before it came out.

It is a cross between two landrace strains, Trainwreck and Hawaiian. The combination of these two strains results in a ratio of 3:2 of Sativa to Indica. It qualifies as a daytime strain because it induces a relaxing feeling and helps in boosting creativity.

You prefer not to take it before going to work as it might make you feel more relaxed while performing complex tasks.

Effects of Pineapple Express 

Even though the movie Pineapple Expresspainted the strain as being very high in THC content and can produce insane effects, this is not how this particular weed works. As a result of the potent Sativa strain, users tend to experience relaxation and a body-numbing feeling. Generally, people take this type of drug to get rid of creative blocks or feelings of depression and stress.

Side effects of Pineapple express marijuana strain 

Like all the other strains, Pineapple express has a few mild side effects too. As an Indica and Sativa hybrid, it produces the most common side effects like dry eyes, dry mouth, and at times, paranoia, anxiety, and dizziness.

For preventing dry mouth, one should always be hydrated and drink lots of water. For preventing dry eyes, you should prefer keeping a bottle of moisturizing eye drops near to you.

Other than these minor side effects, it is considered risk-free.

Note: People who do not respond fine to a weed high in THC content and suffer from panic attacks should refrain from using Pineapple Express.

In a nutshell, it is a hybrid blend of Indica and Sativa that can energize and uplift you to tackle all the adventures and help you get out the creative side of you. Apart from this, it can be used medicinally as a treatment for mood disorders and chronic or mild pain.
