Pineapple Poison Strain Terpene Profile
Pineapple Poison aroma is zesty and refreshing. Brimming with tropical accents, hints of liquorice, and the dominant smell of fresh-cut pineapple, these qualities carry through to its fulfilling flavour, where they’re met with pungent kush and skunk notes, pine, and a lingering aftertaste of aniseed.
Pineapple Poison abundant terpenes include terpinolene, along with more common terpenes like limonene, myrcene and caryophyllene. Though many strains feature terpinolene in trace amounts, terpinolene-dominant strains are rare. This organic compound can also be found in nutmeg, cumin and even apples, where its aromatic intensity also lends it pest-killing and anti-fungal properties.
Pineapple Poison Strain Effects
Pineapple Poison effects are sativa-dominant and designed for those who prefer a more uplifting psychoactive experience. This is the perfect strain for helping recreational users stay productive, whether enjoying the outdoors or working on creative tasks. Promoting feelings of positivity, energy and mental clarity, as this cultivar is a little less intense than similar sativa hybrids, it can be enjoyed throughout the day without any worries.
While classified as a high THC strain, Pineapple Poison THC levels are unknown. Analysis of Pineapple and Durban Poison have shown comparable contents in the 17% range, but this strain is significantly more potent than both its parents. As such, inexperienced users should use Pineapple Poison weed in moderation to avoid any unwanted effects like dizziness or paranoia, which can be expected in more potent sativa strains.
Pineapple Poison strain Medical Benefits
As an essential oil, terpinolene has antibacterial and antifungal qualities, which is why it’s a common additive in soaps and cleaning products. In Pineapple Poison medical seeds, it mainly has a calming effect, reducing stress and feelings of agitation. Myrcene and limonene possess similar qualities, making this strain an excellent pacifier and perfect for anxiety disorders of all kinds.
Pineapple Poison medical benefits can also be used to treat insomnia. Evidence from a 2013 study showed that terpinolene is an effective central nervous system sedative. Although its impact is mild, its active effects are often combined with those of lilac and lavender in many natural sleep aids and can be utilised to a similar effect with Pineapple Poison weed.
How to Grow Pineapple Poison Strain
Growing Pineapple Poison feminised seeds may pose a challenge to indoor growers with limited space. Its sativa characteristics present early in the grow cycle resulting in plants that can reach up to 4m outside or 1-2m indoors. Therefore, outdoor growth is recommended to ensure maximum harvests and plenty of space for your plants to stretch.
Little specific information exists about Pineapple Poison yields, but growers can expect healthy results and plenty of dense, commercial-quality buds come harvest time. Besides the space requirements, these feminized cannabis seeds are an excellent choice for new growers, producing hardy, vigorous plants that can withstand the elements. Pineapple Poison flowering time ranges between 8-10 weeks from germination, but if you’re patient, the bumper-sized results of this Durban Poison x Pineapple Skunk cross are sure to bring a smile to your face.
