Piña Colada Pineapple Pot
If you’re a cannabis cultivator with very little patience but an overpowering desire for some tasty, tropical nugs, then Pineapple Autoflower is likely a choice strain for you. Boasting resilient Ruderalis genetics and easy to manage growth traits, this plant can provide you with deliciously fruity pineapple buds in the shortest time possible.
As you might have guessed, the original Pineapple served as a genetic base for this variant: Indica-leaning with stable genetics that can be traced back to Ed Rosenthal Super Bud (ERSB). Then combined with Ruderalis genetics to ensure a sturdier and even more stable strain, Pineapple Autoflower was born - independent of light and dark cycles and with a fast maturation rate than the original, ensuring that you get plenty of harvests in per year and as many of those pineapple scented nugs as possible.
With an intensely uplifting euphoric effect that’s unmissable, the well-balanced ratio of Indica to Sativa in this weed works to ensure that your mind is as buzzing as your body, as this herb relaxes every inch of your tired form.
This pain-relieving, muscle-relaxing effect can be of great use to those in the medicinal marijuana (MMJ) community seeking a reprieve from such ailments as PMS, arthritis or glaucoma, and as a psychological aid for stress and anxiety.
Since this variant is autoflowering (and all-fem), she’s lucky enough to exhibit several traits that make this a hassle-free grow, even for newbies. Though yields will likely vary depending on the substrate used and the environment she’s reared in, Pineapple Auto is unreliant on light cycles and fast to grow into the sweetly tropical plant you’re yearning for.
Flavor and Fragrance of Pineapple Autoflower
When you begin to break apart the buds of Pineapple Auto, in moments you’ll notice the sweet aroma of fresh, ripe pineapple that fills the air. As for flavor, this tropical cocktail scent continues into a fruity pineapple taste that’s strong and delicious, balanced with faint notes of earth and a slightly mint aftertaste.
Just as unmistakable as her aroma, Pineapple Autoflower’s high begins with a wave of euphoria that’s uplifting and intense, spreading slowly through to the limbs and torso to develop into a body buzz that relaxes the muscles and soothes tension until your spirit is lifted.
As a well balanced hybrid, this herb’s effects are neither Indica or Sativa dominant, and as such, don’t overwhelm mentally, or sedate physically. Pineapple is an excellent choice of strain for a chilled out night watching TV - especially if there are snacks around, as this weed will bring on some serious hunger pangs and the munchies are truly impossible to resist.
Like most marijuana, these buds don't come without a few adverse effects, though provided you dose moderately and don’t overdo it, this should be restricted to dry, bloodshot eyes, cottonmouth and maybe a little dizziness - these tend to disappear on their own, but staying hydrated can work to prevent them.
For those tempted to over consume this fruity delight, be aware that toking too much can cause more serious problems, such as heightened anxiety and increased paranoia.
Medical Uses of Pineapple Autoflower
Since Pineapple Autoflower has a complex and rich terpene profile, and THC levels that reach up to 21%, it’s practically a given that she boasts a whole host of varied therapeutic effects to target both psychological and physical maladies.
Notably, the analgesic qualities of this plant can be beneficial to patients looking for natural pain management alternatives, as opposed to prescribed OTC drugs. Pineapple can help, alleviating the symptoms of arthritis, glaucoma, backache, PMS, rheumatism, migraines and more.
This pot can also aid with psychological distress, stimulating the brain’s production and management of serotonin and dopamine to lighten the load of those with stress, anxiety and depression by removing negative thoughts and feelings.
With antiemetic properties, Pineapple Auto can quell nausea and vomiting (even as a side effect of chemotherapy) to boost appetite and induce hunger pangs in those struggling with lack of appetite and eating disorders.
Growing Pineapple Autoflower Seeds
Pineapple Autoflower is a simple enough plant to grow, making her a choice strain for newbies looking to develop their skills in cannabis cultivation. She displays Indica growth traits, and is a bushy and compact looking hybrid that’s unlikely to grow much taller than 3.5 feet tall when fully mature.
This strain's branches are chunky, with short internodes and round, resinous buds shaped much like a pineapple - however this denseness makes them more than a little prone to pathogens and fungus, so optimal airflow is important to avoid this. Still, that Ruderalis ancestry makes this herb resilient to mold and mildews, which is a huge bonus.
Planted indoors or out, Pineapple’s autoflowering nature means that her flowering stage isn’t triggered by a light cycle, so she matures more quicker than regular strains. In comparison, this herb takes around 4 weeks to vegetate, then another 8 to 10 weeks before flowering - meaning she can be grown and harvested two or three times a year, depending on the date of germination and the environment.
Hydroponics is the way to go for this weed to reach her full potential, particularly when combined with 600-watt grow lamps, plenty of nutrient rich fertilizer, and a Sea of Green (SOG) technique. This will maximize the light exposure of the plant, and boost harvests indoors, leaving you with around 1.47 to 1.8 ounces of dense buds per square foot.
For outdoor growers, the harvest can vary from 1.76 up to 7 ounces of nugs per plant, depending on factors such as how much light the plants get, the quality of her soil, amount of nutrients and generally how much TLC you give her.
Piña colada pineapple flavors and a moderate amount of THC combine with hardy Ruderalis genetics and autoflowering traits in this weed. Pineapple Autoflower doesn’t conform to the strict light cycles of photoperiod strains, meaning that cultivators can grow several harvests a year in the right environment, to take advantage of this herb’s fruit-filled high yields.
With head-highs that are euphoric and yet peaceful, the balanced blend of Sativa and Indica effects in this pot make for a tranquil but enlightening experience - an experience that can also alleviate various aches and pains, and lift the mind from stressful, mental burdens.
