Pineapple Kush Indica Strain
We received our 7.2 grams of the Pineapple Kush Indica Strain as part of a special ounce deal, which netted me a signup bonus of $25 off their $90 ounce price. This portion of it represents $17.50 for the quarter. Emerald City Wellness has generous specials like their signup bonus and monthly discount. It is a distance to go downtown to the west side for weed, but well worth it quality wise and for selection of strains.
The Pineapple Kush is a pungent smelling strain, especially after a few nuggets are ground up in the grinder. We obtained a new yellow pipe for the trial, at $13.99 from the Taste of India Grocery shop, marked down from $18.99 for us.
Since the PAX vaporizer is down for cleaning, we are smoking this from a clean, glass pipe. This strain is rated at 31.14-33.3% THCa with 0% CBDa. This promises to be a hard hitting indica on the high end of the scale for strength. There is a pineapple smell to the weed, and the nuggets are small to medium sized in the grinder. Green color with orange hairs prominent and a sweet smell once ground up.
The euphoria and pain relief is rather quick once smoked, a few puffs and the effects are quickly felt. There is marked pain relief in my knee, which has been paining me recently. This is a heavy strain, so continued use will likely put you to sleep. I am regulating when we do this strain, since the end of the day of pain is the most important, to help one sleep. I am rather used to the higher THCa level and so can use this during the day as well, to help regulate the pain. A puff here and there seems to do the trick.
May help with anxiety, allow you to relax, good for appetite stimulation too. I recommend higher THCa strains for pain relief. To me, this is the main consideration, the other benefits are secondary to pain relief for me. Although with cannabis I have found less depression and anxiety which is good for stress levels and blood pressure.
Conclusion: good strain for pain relief, as the budtender recommended. Thanks to her for the strain tip.
