Pineapple OG (Sativa Hybrid)
Pineapple OG is a fruity, sativa-dominant cross between two well-known strains, Pineapple Express and the notorious OG Kush. This bud has a chunky flavour and offers both upbeat and relaxing effects. The cured flowers carry a dank tropical aroma with notes of mango and citrus. A second inspection may also pick up on a sour-sweet odour, similar to overripe fruit. Meanwhile, breaking these tight buds apart or grinding them up yields some diesel-like fumes. Burning Pineapple OG releases a light and very palatable smoke that has a tangy pineapple flavour on the exhale.
The high from Pineapple OG arrives relatively quickly, with a brief head rush marked by odd sensations, stimulation of the salivary glands and light flushing in the cheeks. Smokers may notice that their thoughts are moving more quickly and have taken on a new intensity. This kind of activated cerebral thinking can help with analytical work and problem-solving scenarios, or simply provide some background amusement for those working on boring everyday tasks or errands. Besides these cognitive effects, smokers may also experience changes in sensory perception, resulting in phenomena like visual or auditory distortions. Those who are so inclined can amplify these trippy vibes by turning on a favourite playlist or a compelling movie.
Over time (or even sooner at higher dosages), a heavier side emerges. Weighty and tingling sensations roll across the whole body and muscular tension begins to release, users may feel compelled to take deep, restorative breaths. Despite this, the head high still persists, and as such, Pineapple OG can be a great way to enhance activities involving full-body coordination, such as sports, dancing, or sex. For those who aren’t feeling as motivated, this strain be a good way to unwind after work; it may also help to encourage camaraderie and natural conversation when shared in social settings. Because of its gradual descent into sedation, Pineapple OG is recommended for late afternoon or early evening consumption.
Pineapple OG’s versatile effects make it useful to patients. The keyed-up, cerebral thinking that comes with its onset can be a concentration aid for those with attention deficit disorders. Additionally, the strain’s ability to improve mood can temporarily treat the symptoms of stress and depression. It can soothe aches and pains, whether temporary, due to injury, or chronic. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, may take the edge off of irritations like nausea or cramps. Because its recursive patterns of thinking can become self-directed and paranoid in the wrong set and setting, Pineapple OG is not recommended for patients who are prone to anxiety or panic.
