Customer reviews

According to customer reviews, smoking Pineapple Express Strain is fun and after smoking it for 3 days, my girlfriend threw me out of her house, because I became so talkative. This weed is a nice booster for your mood. A customer from Southern California reported that it is a perfect environment for growing this weed and can provide intense effects as these weeds are covered entirely with THC crystals. One customer reported that he used half a gram of this weed for joint pain and it worked instantly. Also the high is strong but still he could remain functional and talkative.

Dave said on 21/08/2017: “Extremely strong and uniform from seed. I grew this in hybrid light from in greenhouse. They were in sun and lighted with t5 and led at night. 24 hours lit daily. I grew this in a vermiculite perlite peat mix with down to earth general organic ferts. These grew as fast in this situation as any hydro farming I’ve seen.

Once they were about 4 inches tall they took off. I kept humidity around 90 percent and they grow faster than when it was at 60 percent. I have grown them all year and they are monsters. The colas haven’t even finished and I have buds double my head size.

I am not being dramatic. I will say I am no rookie to growing and I use a compost tea all the time which makes my plants grow very fast on comparison to not using it. Anyways I hope I have helped someone make a decision on these. I have yet to sample the high. I grew these because I wanted something that would produce a lot that looked like a good high.”
