Resisting the allure of pineapple is hard. Whether it is in chunk or juice form, pineapple is a mouthwatering tropical fruit that provides you with memories of sandy beaches and clear waters.
The wonderful taste and smell mean that marijuana with pineapple genetics is highly sought after, and the Golden Pineapple strain is no different. It is an energizing hybrid that is suitable for novice users despite its high THC content.
What is the Golden Pineapple Strain?
Golden Pineapple strain weed is believed to be a cross of Pineapple Kush and Golden Goat. It is a balanced hybrid created by Phat Panda and impacts both body and mind. Golden Pineapple offers a sophisticated high that is intense but not overwhelming. This strain is also extremely aromatic and keeps you in a feel-good state for hours.
We recently reviewed Cat Piss cannabis, so it is an unquestionable pleasure to try the Golden Pineapple marijuana strain which couldn’t be further away on the aroma spectrum! It has an exceedingly sweet pineapple smell that fills a room. The scent gets especially strong near harvest time. There are also mild citrus notes, along with a skunky and dank fragrance that makes this weed hard to resist.
If you enjoyed the smell, wait until you taste Golden Pineapple! It is a bit like biting into a pineapple, and the tropical fruitiness will make your mouth water. When you exhale, you may get a spicy taste along with the sweetness, and there is also a hint of citrus to round off what is a pleasurable smoking experience.
Golden Pineapple has vibrant neon green buds which bear a slight resemblance to the Jack Herer strain. As it is a balanced hybrid, the buds aren’t as dense as other strains, and it looks a little like a stunning sandy beach when viewed up close. Once the plants get close to harvest time, trichomes begin to cover them.
Golden Pineapple Strain Grow Info
Once you have purchased Golden Pineapple seeds, you have the option to grow them indoors or outdoors because these plants are highly resistant to common diseases such as mold. Golden Pineapple will grow in a hydroponics setup, but if you decide to use soil as your growing medium, make sure you choose the highest possible quality. You can purchase organic potting soil from the store that is full of nutrients.
If you grow Golden Pineapple outdoors, make sure you live in a warm and temperate climate. Your crop should be ready for harvest at the end of September or in early October. One possible issue with this strain is the relatively low yield. Even when you get everything right, your yield is not likely to exceed 11 ounces per plant.
If you decide to cultivate this plant indoors, make sure you expose it to plenty of light. All plants need light to create energy, and marijuana is no different. Once the light hits the surface of the leaves, the plant’s chlorophyll helps convert energy in sugars which are a plant’s food. Indoor growers should invest in LED or HPS lighting. Golden Pineapple’s flowering time is 8-9 weeks, and it can provide up to 13 ounces per square meter planted indoors.
THC Content – Highest Test
Golden Pineapple cannabis is not a strain to be trifled with. It has a THC content ranging from 20% to 23%.
CBD Content – Highest Test
There isn’t much CBD to offset the psychoactive effects of THC. You are unlikely to find a cut of Golden Pineapple with a CBD of over 0.3%.
What Can I Expect When I Use Golden Pineapple Weed?
Despite its potency, Golden Pineapple is a viable option for new marijuana users. As it is a balanced hybrid, it provides users with the best of both sativa and indica effects. It is the cannabis strain of choice if you are looking for some good times because it elevates your mood, and keeps you uplifted for hours.
While some strains give you an energy boost while others help you to relax, Golden Pineapple does a bit of both. You will feel a certain pep in your step after using it, yet it also keeps you relaxed and happy. Therefore, you can use it during the day or later in the evening if you plan on enjoying a night out. This strain is also associated with a boost in creativity which makes it a solid choice for musicians and writers.
Medical Benefits of Golden Pineapple Marijuana
Golden Pineapple is growing in popularity as a medicinal marijuana strain. It is a ‘go-to’ option for patients with mental health conditions such as chronic stress, anxiety, and depression. It is also useful if you have a migraine or chronic fatigue.
You should definitely consider Golden Pineapple if you require a mood or energy boost because its happy effects last much longer than most strains. Cancer patients might also want to try Golden Pineapple because it can help combat nausea, loss of appetite, and other side effects associated with chemotherapy.
Possible Side Effects of Golden Pineapple Weed
Generally speaking, the adverse effects associated with Golden Pineapple are minor and could include dry and itchy eyes, and dehydration. If you use too much, you could develop a sudden bout of anxiety, while paranoia might also rear its ugly head.
