A Cerebral Buzz Worth Taking the Time For
One of the strains that we can comfortably label as legendary in the 420 community, Pineapple Haze Feminized is fully deserving of her status. An instant hit with citrus scents that entice tokers in before they even light up, her cerebral highs and tempered body buzzes make for an enjoyable trip to fruity paradise and an experience you’ll never forget.
With so many variants of Pineapple Haze available, it’s hard to identify which one is the “real” version, the original that gave this strain her name. However, the most highly regarded, coveted variant is the hybrid bred by combining Sativa Haze with Pineapple, and whether or not she’s the original, she’s certainly widely accepted as such.
The THC content of this weed can vary and is commonly found to fall between 19% and 22%, making this stuff a potent kick in the teeth and not recommended for inexperienced smokers. In moderate doses, though, the stimulating cerebral buzz of these buds can work to energize and fill you with creativity, while the Indica side keeps you grounded and chilled.
As a medical strain, the uplifting effect of Pineapple Haze Fem can be of benefit to those with mental health concerns, ranging from stress and anxiety, to calming the symptoms of ADHD. Pain-relief wise, she can alleviate most mild to moderate aches and pains, but tokers should look to something stronger for more severe symptoms.
It takes a fair amount of experience, skill and a whole lot of patience to grow this plant, but the copious amount of fruity nugs you’re left with afterwards makes it all worth your while. Classically Sativa, these beauties still exhibit a few growth traits that make them more Indica, and with all-fem seeds, at least weeding out males isn’t an additional task to manage.
Flavor and Fragrance of Pineapple Haze Feminized
Sweet and citrusy with the scent of pineapple, Pineapple Haze Fem is fresh with an earthy, floral undertone to her aroma that perfectly balances the fruitiness of her fragrance with sweet pine notes.
In flavor, this herb is just as tropical, though tempered with skunky notes in the aftertaste that somewhat mask the sweeter citrus notes that remain from the aroma.
We wouldn’t correct you if you looked at this name of this strain and came to the conclusion that she’d be much like Pineapple, but with a Haze twist - because of course, you’d be right.
With a THC content that reaches up to 22%, Pineapple Haze Feminized is a great example of an herb that showcases the very best traits of her parent strains, and yet puts her very own spin on it - but newbies should beware, as she can be potent and overpowering if over consumed. This is more one for the seasoned smokers and veterans of the cannabis community.
Initially, within a few moments of your first toke you’ll begin to notice a strong cerebral buzz and a developing feeling of euphoria that rushes all the blood to your brain, and builds pressure around the eye sockets and temples.
While you take your time to bask in this, you’ll likely notice the creative energy that abounds in your bones as this high really sets in, and the vigor that strengthens over time to keep you active all day.
Energizing as she is, Pineapple Haze Fem is amazing as a wake-and-bake strain to provide vitality first thing in the morning and a go-get-em attitude. Luckily, the Indica effect of this herb nicely balances her energy out, so that you’re not left hyperactive and bouncing off the walls. Still, this calming effect isn’t sedating, so there’s no need to worry about taking a few tokes before leaving for your day.
Like most marijuana strains, Pineapple Haze Feminized does lead to some potential unwanted adverse effects. Dry eyes and cottonmouth are common enough and can be remedied with plenty of water, staying hydrated and if needs be, some eye drops. However, for inexperienced smokers or those who are sensitive to THC, the effects could intensify to cause lightheadedness, dizziness, headaches, increased paranoia and even heightened anxiety. If you think this could affect you, then give this strain a miss.
Medical Uses of Pineapple Haze Feminized
Since Pineapple Haze Fem has the ability to boost the focus of even the most scattered of minds, those suffering with ADD and ADHD who require a strain that can aid concentration will find that this weed is a bit of a godsend. The euphoric, uplifting effects of this herb can also be of therapeutic benefit to tokers struggling with stress, depression, anxiety or PTSD.
As an analgesic, this plant is effective at relieving minor aches and pains such as joint pain, muscle spasms and headaches. Due to the strong munchies effect of this strain, a joint of this can alleviate nausea and lack of appetite, too.
Growing Pineapple Haze Feminized Seeds
Not one for novice cannabis cultivators, Pineapple Haze Feminized requires a dab hand, plenty of experience and a fair amount of hard work to flourish into the best and most beautiful specimen she can be - but don’t let that put you off! If you’ve got the time, skills and inclination, then this plant will reward you handsomely with heavy yields. Just have a little patience.
When this plant begins to bloom, her colas are large and heavily scented with that classic pineapple aroma - they even look a little like pineapples. Though Sativa-dominant, you’ll notice her structure looks more like a typical Indica, with tightly coiled, yellow-green leaves and a healthy scattering of amber pistils that add to the golden glow of her glistening, frosty trichomes.
Though she can grow quite tall at up to 8 feet, Pineapple Haze still works well as an indoor strain - but her height can be restricted if vertical space is an issue by planting her in a smaller container and shortening her light cycle.
A fair amount of patience is required to grow this hybrid, as her flowering time is longer than average - between 10 and 12 weeks. Still, the light at the end of the tunnel is the knowledge of just how big her harvest will be, and once she’s mature and ready for reaping, those sweetly scented nugs will weigh in at around 1.96 ounces per square foot.
If you’d rather grow this baby outdoors, she’ll thrive best in a warm and sunny Mediterranean climate - thought that’s not to say those in a cooler northern climate won’t be able to maintain her growth. Sow these seeds between late April and the end of May, and make sure to harvest by the end of October, and your fruity reward will ring in at 21 to 24.7 ounces of nugs per plant.
A must-try. That’s the first and only thing you really need to know about Pineapple Haze Feminized, as her sweet and pineapple flavors appeal to newer tokers, and veterans will love the skunky undertones.
This herb's cerebral highs are buzzing and send blood to the brain within a few tokes, yet her Indica edge keeps you calm and helps you focus your motivation into action - an excellent combination for medicinal purposes, as well as recreationally.
ADHD sufferers will love this weed, as will those struggling with stress, and anxiety, thanks to her potent anxiolytic properties. As a pain reliever, she works well for mild pains, and can energize the fatigued.
Indoors or out, Pineapple Haze Fem’s yield will be mahoosive, and well worth the energy and time invested into it. She’s a specimen that requires some maintenance and skill, but with the right space and attitude, these all-fem ladies will flourish to fill your grow room with fruity nugs.
