The film of the same name that made Delta 8 Pineapple Express a household name debuted in 2008. It was here that Seth Rogan created his legendary cross joints. Soon after the film’s release, cannabis geneticists brought this strain to life by crossing two very popular strains: Hawaiian and Trainwreck. This mix explains its delicious profile and blends perfectly to create a delicious earthy and fruity taste.
Pineapple Express is substantially potent and won’t create that groggy feeling of intoxication that Delta-9 THC infamously causes. The feeling caused by Delta-8 THC can be described as stronger than that of CBD but less intense than Delta-9 THC.
Pineapple Express’s most dominant terpenes are myrcene, pinene, limonene, humulene, and caryophyllene. This particular team of terpenes is responsible for both the scent of mangos and pine that fills the air when you exhale after hitting your vape and the taste of pineapple left on the roof of your mouth. Users have reported that Pineapple Express has an uplifting effect, in addition to general relaxation. The dominant terpenes intertwine with cannabinoids to contribute to an energizing and mood-boosting experience.
Sativa, Indica, Hybrid
Pineapple Express is a Sativa dominant hybrid strain. Hybrid strains impart the consumer with balance, expressing the qualities of both Indica and Sativa effects. With a quality strain like Pineapple Express, you can experience the best of both, all in one product! Because the Pineapple Express strain leans more into its Sativa genetics than Indica, you can expect headier, more cerebral effects than you might get from a true 50/50 hybrid or a pure Indica strain.
Many strains of cannabis carry with them lore. The mythological tale of cannabis cowboys and homegrown geneticists creating the perfect strain, often running into high-key figures and brushes with celebrity. The history of Pineapple Express is often up for debate and disputed amongst anonymous figures on the web. Pineapple Express is no exception and comes with an interesting story that likely includes all of the above elements!
You’ll still find plenty of debate online about the true history of this strain. Still, actor and cannabis enthusiast Seth Rogan tried to set the facts straight during the promotion of the 2008 stoner comedy “Pineapple Express.” He claims that the writers made the strain up for the film and that only after the film’s release did it begin appearing as something existing in real life!
After the film’s release, every grower wanted to claim they had created the “dankest dank” that the film centered around, culminating in creating many variations that exist on the market today. Still, growers generally used the strains Hawaiian and Trainwreck as the parents for this legendary hybrid strain! Now we’ve taken this strain to new heights by combining it with the uplifting and invigorating qualities of the Delta 8 THC!

Smell and Flavor
The taste and smell of Pineapple Express surely do justice to its name, this strain stands for its strong tropical flavors and mixture of cedar and pineapple tones. Take a hit of a Delta 8 vape cartridge, and you’ll experience the natural pineapple tones and sweet tropical blend of fruity aromas.
On the exhale, your palette indulges in the subtle dank flavors of the forest, bringing to mind a dark place where one could lay under the shade of a tree and bask in the deep relaxation of the forest. These earthy notes will be familiar to anyone who partakes in a quality strain but are further enhanced by the citrus forward notes of this particularly delicious flavor.
The natural terpenes in a strain largely help determine some of its most noticeable characteristics like the color, smell, and taste! Terpenes are commonly found in plants of many varieties and many types of food for flavoring. That means you have been consuming natural terpenes well before knowing what hemp is!
Still, terpenes are often associated primarily with the cannabis and hemp plant because they naturally contain higher amounts of terpenes than other plants. That’s is why a single high-quality hemp nug can sometimes light up a whole room with its aroma! Some of the terpenes you will find in a Pineapple Express Delta 8 THC vape from Hollyweed are:
- Myrcene: This is the most common terpene in popular cannabis strains! Myrcene is in Thyme, Lemongrass, and Mango. This terpene brings a spicy and peppery flavor to the strains it is in.
- Pinene: Pinene is easily recognized by its scent, strongly resembling pine needles. But it has a more complex flavor than just that! Look at some other plants you can find in, like rosemary, basil, and parsley! Pinene is the most common terpene in the plant world.
- Limonene: Limonene, of course, is present in Lemons and citrus in general! Limonene actually makes up 90%of the essential oil content found in orange rind, a testament to its ability to be citrusy.
- Humulene: This terpene is often earthy, spicy, and herbal. This terpene is commonly associated with the flavor found in hops. Though it can also be found in ginseng and black pepper.
- Caryophyllene: Caryophyllene is often associated with providing a spicy scent to cannabis. This terpene is found in black pepper, basil, and oregano. In cannabis, caryophyllene brings notes of clove and cinnamon.
Judging the potency of a product is not a straightforward process. This is because potency refers to the efficacy of the product based on the effects desired by the individual. That means that you can judge potency based on various factors, each of which will be different depending on the person.
Still, we can give a straightforward answer regarding the strength of our Delta 8 THC vape cartridges! Our one-gram cartridges contain 900mg of Delta 8 THC, enough to provide you with many sessions of Delta 8 goodness!

- Appetite depletion
It is also important to note that while Delta 8 is legal under federal law, it may appear on drug tests. If you undergo a drug test for work or have one coming soon, we recommend avoiding Delta 8 consumption.
Delta 8 Pineapple Express Vape Cart – Suggested Use
First-time users of a vape cartridge may be wondering how to use a vape. To start, you’ll need to connect your cartridge to a 510 threaded battery, like the ones you can find bundled with our vape cartridges! Following this, rapidly press the button 5 times to turn it on. If the button has an LED indicator, it will briefly flash five times, indicating it is on. Once on, press the button down while inhaling from the mouthpiece on the tip of the cartridge. This heats the ceramic core of the pen, providing clean, flavorful vapor. Exhale, and you’re all set!
How much To Take
When first trying Delta 8 THC or any concentrated vape product, it is important to take an amount that is appropriate for you. However, many factors influence how much to take that greatly vary from person to person, like their body weight, tolerance, and desired effect. That makes giving a one size fits all approach ineffective. Because of this discrepancy, we recommend a simple method for first-time consumers. Start with small puffs and only take more after waiting for the initial inhale to kick in. Once inhaled, concentrated cannabinoid products take effect almost immediately, so you shouldn’t have to wait long before the effects set in.
