About Oregon Pineapple
Oregon Pineapple is a sativa-dominant hybrid with an intense and memorable flavor. Created by the Portland-based Chalice Farms, the strain is a cross between Pineapple and Master Kush. Oregon Pineapple strikes users with upbeat, head-focused effects to complement its delicious flavor. Its THC content has been measured at between 15% and 20%.
Flowers of Oregon Pineapple vary in physical appearance by phenotype, with some appearing small and chunky and others relatively large and almost cylindrical. The leaves are a bright shade of spring green and cling together in a characteristically indica structure, with a dense and solid core. The leaves are a vivid shade of spring green and are twisted through with bright red pistils. Finally, a thorough coating of icy white trichomes cover all visible surfaces of these buds and make them very sticky to the touch.
As might be expected, the most prominent aroma wafting up from flowers of this strain is that of fresh pineapple. A second whiff may also detect some general citrus notes. When these compact flowers are broken apart or ground up, meanwhile, they may give off a pungent sour odor. If combusted in a pipe or a joint, Oregon Pineapple burns with a smooth and pleasantly tropical smoke that can be easily inhaled. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind some sour fruity flavors.
True to its sativa heritage, Oregon Pineapple begins working relatively quickly. Soon after ingesting its heavily perfumed smoke, consumers may detect some pressure or twitching around the eyes and lower forehead; an increase in salivation is also possible. As smokers because accustomed to these sensations, though, they may notice that their brain activity has significantly sped up. Certain concepts that might not otherwise be interesting may suddenly occupy the user’s full attention; additionally, thanks to a kind of free association, ideas may jump from one to the next in rapid succession. So stimulated, users of Oregon Pineapple may find themselves better able to concentrate on complicated, analytical tasks. Alternatively, the strain can free up inhibitions on creative thinking for those working on brainstorms or artistic projects.
Even after an hour or so, Oregon Pineapple’s cerebral stimulation remains consistent. While some users describe an increased sense of physical relaxation, this body high typically isn’t enough to lock them on the couch or to derail a day’s agenda. Instead, those who are so inclined can enjoy Oregon Pineapple’s subtle combination of mental and physical stimulation with activities that involve full-body coordination, including, but not limited to, exercise, gaming, and even sex. The strain can also be an excellent social lubricant in party settings, inspiring free-flowing conversation. Because of its mostly upbeat vibes, Oregon Pineapple is recommended for daytime (and even morning) consumption.
Oregon Pineapple’s positive mental properties can have some applications for medical cannabis patients as well. Its focused and wide-awake energy can help those with attention deficit disorders to focus on one task a time. Its gentle euphoria may also work against some symptoms of stress and depression, albeit only temporarily. This strain’s anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, can have some physical benefits, including a relief from aches and pains and everyday irritations like headaches or nausea. Oregon Pineapple can even be an appetite stimulant that may be useful for those suffering from gastrointestinal diseases or undergoing chemotherapy. Because its cerebral qualities can turn into paranoia in the wrong set and setting, Oregon Pineapple is not recommended for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Unfortunately for home growers, seeds of Oregon Pineapple are not available for purchase online. Instead, those looking to cultivate the bud should seek out clippings from mature, healthy plants of the strain that can be fostered as “clones.” These clippings can be grown indoors or out, although outdoor success calls for a semi-humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Oregon Pineapple’s plants tend to grow short and squat and may have strong lateral branching patterns. This strain reaches maturity within 9 to 10 weeks.
As potent as it is tasty, Oregon Pineapple makes for an excellent all-purpose hybrid. This strain is especially worth sampling by terpene fans.
