Hybrid -50% Sativa /50% IndicaTHC: 21%, CBD: 5%
Pineapple Kush is that rarest of finds on the medical marijuana market: a therapeutic strain high in CBD and low in THC. CBD levels top 5%, making this an ideal strain for treating epileptic disorders and other problems that require that cannabinoid. At the same time, THC levels are below 3%, and that means children with seizure disorders may be able to safely use Pineapple Kush extracts (consult a doctor or budtender for more information). This strain is a sativa-dominant hybrid with an unknown sativa/indica ratio, and though there isn’t much of a high, the effects are said to be creative, happy, sociable, and mentally focused. Aside from seizures, this strain can be used to treat anxiety, physical fatigue, inflammation, migraines, muscle spasms, nausea, and pain. The smell is earthy and sweet and the flavor is earthy with hints of chestnut and pineapple. The dense, leafy buds are dark green with brown hairs. Dry mouth is the most commonly reported side effect, though dry eyes, dizziness, anxiety, and paranoia are also possible. Pineapple Kush can be found at select dispensaries in Northern California and the Bay Area.
Pineapple Kush marijuana strain has an aroma of pineapple with accents of caramel and butter. The flavor is described as a subtle sweet pineapple taste with a mint undertone. While the breeder of this strain is unknown, its parents are Pineapple and Master Kush. The buds are brown/green in color and covered with amber crystals. With a THC content of up to 15% and CBD of 0.14%, the buzz is commonly described as cerebral, with a light body sensation.
Pineapple Kush is a mostly Indica strain that totes a THC count of up to 15 percent and tastes exactly as the name would imply. This strain blasts the brain with euphoric and uplifting feelings that relax and mellow out the mind. Such feelings then translate to the body as waves of numbing laziness that can quickly couch-lock unsuspecting users. The strain imparts a powerful munchies effect, so snacks or an easy to make meal are recommended to be kept close at hand. A relatively standard but potent strain, Pineapple Kush comes with the normal downsides of dry eyes and mouth, dizziness, paranoia and headaches.
A strain that should be relegated to night time use, though surprisingly the strain is not often sought after by insomniacs as most do not feel tired from Pineapple Kush. The powerful body melt can be effective pain relief. It may also calm muscle spams and nausea. Some patients use these effects to help them fight their eating disorders. The strong cerebral effects are welcome relief for many who suffer from stress, anxiety and depression related disorders.
Pineapple Kush’s true origins are not known but it comes from California and most know it to be a cross between Pineapple and Master Kush. The strain requires between 63 and 77 days to finish flowering, so that it may produce a reportedly high yield. Unfortunately real Pineapple Kush is hard to come by and seeds from the real strain are rare.
