About Pineapple Trainwreck
Pineapple Trainwreck is a well-known Sativa-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis. Although no one knows for sure who the original breeder of this magnificent strain was, the community has settled on the fact that this strain is a cross between Pineapple Express and Trainwreck, two beyond-famous strains of cannabis. Despite the fact that this strain’s origins remain a mystery, it’s become almost a staple in most cannabis markets, so it shouldn’t be too hard to get a hold of. This daytime strain is known for its uplifting and social effects, so it is best to use during the day or if you’re going out for a night on the town. Depending on the harvest, the THC concentration found in your bud will vary highly, but it typically lands somewhere around 19%.
Most of the time, Pineapple Trainwreck doesn’t have much bag appeal. These dense and spongy buds aren’t the most beautiful flower on the shelf, often looking a bit like shake or mids. However, if you can look past its physical imperfections, Pineapple Trainwreck is sure to treat you to a myriad of scents, flavors, and effects. These buds are classic olive green with long, burnt orange hairs wrapping around the exterior of the bud. Tiny crystal trichomes are spread evenly on the surface of this bud, giving it a glistening, sticky texture. This flower smells very unique. You should expect your nose to be filled with spicy and sour citrus aromas with a hint of dried tropical fruit. The flavor is quite similar, though the smoke from this strain can be a bit harsh.
The effects of Pineapple Trainwreck are akin to the effects of Pineapple Express, if the Pineapple Express was on psychoactive steroids. Those who feel Pineapple Express can’t quite get the job done are often recommended this strain because of its “amped up” effects. Almost immediately after taking a hit, you should find a comfortable place to chill out because your body will become incredibly relaxed and almost couch-locked. While quickly relaxing your muscles without completely sedating you, the strain bolsters your mood and helps bring a bit of creative energy into your psyche. Pineapple Trainwreck is most often suggested for wake-and-bake situations where you need a quick boost in energy to get you up and going. But the fun doesn’t stop there, as Pineapple Trainwreck provides a soothing body high which is sure to keep you active and without pain for hours to come. Some have even reported the strong munchies caused by this strain to be an excellent tool in regulating hunger and keeping from binge-eating.
This was my first experience with a sativa dominant strain. I prefer a milder experience than many and this has been perfect for me. Easy to be motivated to get up and take care of yard/house work. Able to stay focused in conversation with my family. No feeling of paranoia or increased anxiety. Pain and nausea well managed from my chemo, no munchies which is a plus for me, overall it’s been a great daytime experience for me. With that said I am still overall new to any sativa leaning strains so I don’t have many strains of experience to compare.
