Tested between 13% and 19% THC, Pineapple Haze provides users with a very build-able high. It usually takes a few extra puffs from the vape or the bong for the effects to surface. But, once it does, its initial onset begins with a euphoric buzz.

Pineapple Haze envelops the mind with complete happiness, leaving users feeling upbeat and cheery.

Though the mental buzz has intensified, it is not difficult to lock in on projects and chores. The clearheaded high heightens one’s sense of focus and sparks a free-flow of ideas. And, with a rush energy, brainstorming becomes an easy task.

Complementing the cerebral high is the strain’s subtle Indica effects. From the temples, it sends a light pressure to the rest of the body. Wave after wave, the soothing sensation stretches out tired muscles and relaxes the user. Not to the point of sedation and lethargy, though. The mental awareness allows one to finish work before capping off the day.

As a natural stimulant, Pineapple Haze is best used during the morning or early afternoon. Overindulging in the bud, however, can stun users into a couch lock.

Pineapple Haze terpenes

This cannabis strain contains linalool, myrcene, terpinolene, ocimene and β-Pinene which make up its rich terpene profile.

Aroma & Flavor

Pineapple Haze smells of freshly picked flowers infused with aromatic pine. Crushed up, the sweet yet citric scent of pineapples permeate throughout the room.

Pineapple Haze carries over the same terpene profile in its flavors. For example, drawing in the smoke reveals the taste of tangy, tropical pineapples. On the exhale, however, a refreshing pine blended with skunk linger in the mouth.

Adverse Reaction

Dry eyes and a cottonmouth are two of the most common reactions to smoking marijuana. Though mild, they can be quite uncomfortable for beginners. Thankfully, having a glass of water is enough to appease such symptoms.

Pineapple Haze is a strong Sativa leaning strain that, in excess, brings about other unwanted effects. Drawing in the smoke all at once can be disorienting; resulting in lightheaded or a headache. However, the heightened awareness may result in first-time users feeling a little paranoid. Needless to say, buds should always be smoked in reasonable amounts.


Apart from the recreational, Pineapple Haze’s build-able high provides users with great medical benefits. In the body, THC becomes a natural analgesic with effects that begin at the temples. Through and through, it soothes away the sharp, sting of sudden contractions throughout the body. The relaxing effects also eliminate gastrointestinal pain and nausea.

As a potent Sativa-leaning strain, though, its best use is arguably appeasing known mental conditions. As stated earlier, the strain induces a happy high that works perfectly against negativity. By encouraging self-love, it becomes an ally for people going through depression and PTSD. Such stimulating effects also work well for killing stress and cutting down fatigue.


Acquiring seeds is quite an easy feat as Pineapple Haze is available in almost every major dispensary. They come in feminized form too, ensuring users of an all-female batch with almost zero chances of turning into hermaphrodites. In this way, growers only need to worry about caring for the plant. Although, that may not be as easy.

Because of its Sativa structure, the herb’s stalks are a little weak while its branches are prone to breakage. It tends to grow quite tall too, possibly exceeding the limits of an indoor growing area. For this reason, growers may want to bend and top the plant early or apply super cropping methods.

After a long wait, the plant rewards patient growers with high yields and huge feathered-out nugs. Under the light, they white trichomes on top of its deep forest hue sparkle like gems.

  1. I just cut and hung some pineapple haze so in a few weeks I will let you know how it came out. My question is when I trim the buds is it better to keep the little leaves that are growing out of the buds on or trim them off? They are coated with trichomes so it seems like it would be a waste just to make the buds look good. I trimmed most of them off on this batch but now I’m thinking I shouldn’t. Thanks for any advice you may have.
