Sativa /50% Indica THC: 20% – 23%
In its true form Golden Pineapple is a perfectly balanced hybrid – 50 percent Sativa and 50 percent Indica – however recent growers have begun shaping it into a slightly Sativa-dominant strain for added cerebral effects.
THC levels are usually very high at 25 to 29 percent and CBD levels are quite low – at or around 0.05 percent.
A winner at the 3rd Northwest Cannabis Cub, Golden Pineapple is quickly becoming a popular strain, particularly thanks to its well bred parents – Golden Goat and Pineapple Kush.
As you might imagine, this strain tastes like pineapple. It is tropical and fruity but also a little sour and has hints of diesel fuel and pine. It’s one of the most aromatic strains around. Buds are dense and sticky with resin. The nugs are mostly green with a smattering of orange hairs.
A balanced strain, recreational users should feel confident in partaking of Golden Pineapple at any time of day. The main effect is energy as the THC infuses the brain and body with its peppy effect. Expect to feel good, vigorous, and come down without feeling groggy.
With THC levels so high though, you might want to try it in a safe place and get to know its special effects. Or, you can measure your dose. Take a hit and stop. Wait a little while, maybe a half hour and see if another hit is in your best interest. You can always dose more, but you can’t un-dose; just wait for the effects to dissipate.
Medical users can also take advantage of its creative and uplifting effects while managing pain or other symptoms of a medical condition. Escape from depression, stress, and anxiety – at least for a little while. The low CBD level makes this strain not right for severe medical issues. It can, however, ease pain, improve appetite, and help you get a good night’s sleep.
This strain grows in an average amount of time, about 60 days from planting until you can cut, cure, and indulge. One grower detected a grapefruit smell as his plants were growing and at harvest, it developed the characteristic fruit, diesel, and pine aroma. Upon curing, he noticed that the pineapple smell finally made its appearance.
Balanced and tipping towards a Sativa, Golden Pineapple is a popular, award winning hybrid with notable parents. With a multi-level aromatic profile, this strain is sure to please people who like a strong scent on their bud. Recreational users choose it for the high THC levels and medical users enjoy the energetic push that also alleviates their symptoms.
