Many may know Pineapple Express by the movie of the same name. Although, the Pineapple Express strain is not actually named after the movie. In fact, it takes its name from the distinct tropical fruit’s flavor and aroma.

Pineapple Express Strain Review

FloraVega makes this Sativa-dominant hybrid by crossing Train Wreck and Hawaiian strains. Due to the recognizable pineapple flavor, it has become a long-lasting favorite of cannabis lovers.

Pineapple Express Hybrid Sativa


Also distinct for its appearance, the strain grows into dense, dark green buds marked by bright pistils. 

A dominant terpene in this blend is Myrcene, largely considered the “herbal” terpene due to its earth aromas and flavors. As mentioned, however, the taste of this strain is usually pineapple with citrus notes that blend in an earthy pine.
