About Pineapple Purps
Pineapple Purps is an incredibly Sativa-leaning hybrid strain of cannabis. This strain, also referred to by some as Purple Pineapple, is a potent powerhouse known by many for its unusual ability to produce THCv. This cannabinoid is typically only found in trace amounts in most strains of cannabis, but this strain has the ability to produce insane amounts of the compound, in THC:THCv ratios as high as 3:1. THCv is an incredibly popular cannabinoid because it is known to halt panic attacks, stop muscle spasms, and suppress appetite. Because of its ability to consistently pump out high amounts of this compound, Pineapple Purps is quite popular amongst those who know that this strain does exactly what they need.
Despite numerous medical and recreational tokers alike picking up Pineapple Purps fairly regularly, the origins of this strain remain an absolute mystery. The mastermind behind this incredibly psychoactive powerhouse remains a mystery to this day. Even the genetics behind this strain are up for debate. Although many suggest the strain to be a cross between Pineapple Express and Purps, no definitive answer has been brought before the cannabis community. Because of the heady nature of this strain’s high, we highly recommend consuming this flower in the morning or early afternoon.
Pineapple Purps, as the name alludes, is a primarily forest-green flower with hints of rich violet accenting both the insides and the periphery of the plant. These airy buds are quite typical of Sativa-dominant plants, which means you should expect not-so-dense spade-shaped buds. The aroma produced by this bud is that of musty, sweet earth with a bit of a tropical undertone. The flavor is quite similar, as users have reported tasting a combination of berry-based wine and earthy pineapple in the smoke.
In addition to a high THCv count, Pineapple Purps has garnered a reputation for its powerful psychoactive effects. Users inexperienced with potent Sativas, or those who just don’t like heady highs to begin with should avoid this strain as it can absolutely become too much to handle. Immediately after ripping a bit of this bud, you should expect the strain to launch your mind into the stratosphere. With your head in the clouds, your mind is now free to expand and wander to its absolute limits. Pineapple Purps has become incredibly popular amongst those looking to treat acute panic, pain, chronic stress, depression, and anxiety. In addition, some users have reported the strain’s appetite suppressant to be incredibly useful in regulating appetite.
