Get ready to travel to the tropical paradise that is Pineapple Kush. No sunscreen needed on this sultry retreat, just sit back and enjoy the delicious aroma and taste of sweet pineapple.

About the Strain

This hybrid strain is the perfect mix of parent strains, Pineapple and the classic Master Kush. Pineapple Kush plants grow to a height of 30 to 70 inches and flower between 7 – 8 weeks. The flowers are fluffy and long, with beautiful olive and sage green coloring, and amber hairs. The sticky layer of trichomes covering the bud adds an impressive touch to an already beautiful looking strain.

Pineapple Kush, not surprisingly, smells strongly of pineapple but also gives off delightful notes of butter and caramel. Tasting of sweet pineapple with undertones of either vanilla or a light mint, this strain is one to savor.

Effects of Pineapple Kush

Just like a day lounging at the beach, the trip that Pineapple Kush gives you is one of the warm feelings of happiness and relaxation.

The cerebral high hits first, lifting your mood with a sense of euphoria. Other than possibly a case of the giggles, the high from Pineapple Kush leaves you feeling generally clear-headed and can even induce mental focus and creativity.

A slow moving body high then accompanies the mental buzz. The Indica shines through as good feelings of relaxation move through the body. Although the head high is generally stronger than the body high, in larger amounts or to certain users, this strain may cause that sink-into-your-couch feeling.

Medicinal Uses

Many patients with epilepsy and seizures find Pineapple Kush to be effective, as do those with chronic pain, inflammation, and physical fatigue. It is very helpful in relieving muscle tension, spasms and stiffness. Pineapple Kush also stimulates appetite and quells nausea.

The mix of both relaxation and mentally stimulating high is helpful to people with stress, anxiety, depression, Bipolar disorder and PTSD. The mental focus brought on by the Sativa side of this high can be helpful to those with ADD and ADHD.

Possible Side Effects

Possible side effects of this strain are the common dry eyes and dry mouth. Although less likely, there is a chance headache or dizziness may occur.

Recommendations

The delicious flavor of Pineapple Kush can be easily paired with a variety of food and drinks. Pair your smoking experience with a tropical drink or snack on some fresh fruit (especially when those munchies hit!) and create a full experience.

Fireleaf has a variety of flavored rolling papers and wraps, many of which would be an excellent addition to the flavor of Pineapple Kush. Juicy Jay rolling papers in Pineapple would be absolutely perfect, but flavors Strawberry or Raspberry would also be delicious. For blunts, High Hemp tobacco-free organic herbal wraps in the Maui Mango flavor would be divine, but Hydro Lemonade would accentuate the citrus in this strain in a tasty way.
