Pineapple Chunk Genetics
Pineapple Chunk cannabis seeds lineage includes Pineapple Cheese and Skunk #1 — two pungent cannabis plants from different seedbanks that together have birthed a new breed with an equally acerbic smell and a much quicker flowering time. It may not be as high in Vitamin C as its namesake, but this stinky psychoactive plant boasts impressive THC levels and strong indica-dominant effects that are ideal for late-night sessions and chilled out social events.
A big yielder both inside and out and bolstered with plenty of resistances, it’s an excellent choice for new growers and supercropping customers alike. Flavour hunters are also in luck because this resinous rebel is also a prime candidate for producing high quality concentrates.
Now available from MGS as feminized seeds, Pineapple Chunk marijuana seeds are just the ticket if you’re looking to take a tropical vacation from the comfort of your own home.
Pineapple Chunk Terpene Profile
As its name suggests, Pineapple Chunk aroma and flavour features prominent pineapple notes and leaves a tart citrus taste on the tongue. However, its strong skunk ancestry has also lent it an incredibly pungent and pervasive herbaceous scent that will quickly overwhelm a smaller growhouse and remains even after the plant is cut and cured. Comparable to strong-smelling incense, but with earthy cheese and kush qualities and a sourness that stings the eyes and nose, it makes its presence known immediately, and its cheesy citrus taste is something you’re unlikely to forget fast.
As expected from a strain with a strong skunk background, Pineapple Chunk dominant terpenes are myrcene and limonene — two fruity chemicals that play a big part in producing the classic scent of skunk strains. Other terps like alpha-pinene and caryophyllene are also present in high concentrations within this Pineapple Cheese/Skunk #1 phenotype and help amplify both its medical and psychoactive impact.
Pineapple Chunk Strain Effects
With hybridized genetics that are around 70% indica dominant, Pineapple Chunk effects are primarily physical in nature but with a decent level of sativa-like cerebral stimulation. In fact, its mentally orientated effects are incredibly strong for an indica strain and can be a little overwhelming if you’re not used to cannabis consumption. Users will experience a strong euphoric head rush and as their brain is barraged with ideas and creative inspiration, followed by a full-bodied encore that is equally intense.
The potent nature of this plant can be attributed to its impressive THC level. It may not have a very high CBD content – expect around 1.1% on average – but Pineapple Chunk THC content is around 25% on average, which is considered on the upper scale. Although not suitable for novices, its psychoactive profile is perfect for a fun afternoon with friends, little late-night solo enjoyment, and even effective medical use.
Pineapple Chunk Medical Benefits
Pineapple is a rich source of fibre and is often recommended by dieticians as a way of helping maintain a healthy digestive system. Pineapple Chunk medical seeds may offer similar health benefits as CB-1 and CB-2 receptors – most of which are found in the GI tract – are thought to play a vital role in gut health. These receptors are activated by the effects of cannabinoids like THC, while other compounds found within this strain, like myrcene and alpha-pinene, also have anti-inflammatory effects. Together, these chemicals can help reduce the release of stomach acid and fight against the painful symptoms of gastrointestinal disorders.
Pineapple Chunk medical benefits are also suitable for combating fatigue. Although it has a powerful couch lock effect in higher doses, this strain is also incredibly stimulating, so if you’re looking for something to help get those synapses firing, it can serve as an excellent energy booster. Alpha-pinene and limonene are primarily known for their uplifting effects.
How to Grow Pineapple Chunk Strain
Growing Pineapple Chunk marijuana seeds is easy as this is an incredibly stable cannabis plant. Highly disease resistant and able to withstand temperature fluctuations, the only thing growers will need to worry about are garden pests, but these are usually simple to eliminate.
Breeders may also need to invest in some odour elimination equipment to contend with the plant’s stinky smell, but otherwise, this cultivar is a stable plant and will adapt to almost any growth environment. Giving exceptional results with minimal effort, Pineapple Chunk indoor yield is impressive, but whether you choose to grow your plants inside or out, its production averages at around 600g per/m2. It’s also incredibly resinous and a good option for extract enthusiasts.
These feminised seeds produce bushy, multi-branching plants with fat, chunky buds that bloom in shades of dark green, pink, and purple. Barney’s Farm Pineapple Chunk has a much shorter flowering period than both its parents and should be ready to harvest by around the end of September for outdoor growers. Inside, Pineapple Chunk flowering time is around seven-eight weeks from germination, but we recommend leaving it to bloom as long as possible.
The buds of this particular Pineapple x Skunk plant tend to increase dramatically in size right at the end of its life cycle, so make sure not to harvest too soon to avoid getting disappointing results.
