Effects: Although Pineapple Chunk’s smell and flavor are easy to distinguish, its effects are much harder to identify. It drains my energy and focus after a short initial jolt, then increases my appetite past the point of gluttony. Other users experience a more uplifting high, but one lacking focus. Both highs are long-lasting and usually require sleep to fully shake off. Medical benefits include treating anxiety, stress, eating disorders, minor pain and headaches.
A Dutch import from Amsterdam breeder Barney’s Farm, Pineapple Chunk carries more substance than flash compared to Pineapple Express, another example of industry exploitation (and iffy genetics from dispensary to dispensary) playing off Hollywood hype. Barney’s bred the hybrid strain with a Pineapple phenotype and cross between Cheese and Skunk #1, giving it a middle-of-the road high that can take users either direction, depending on their tolerance and energy level before the session. Whichever way it takes you, be prepared for a long ride.
Every chunk I’ve ripped off this Pineapple has put me down inside of an hour, keeping my head and eyes foggy the entire way. However, I’ve heard of the strain giving some users a youthful spark of energy, or an up-and-down roller-coaster ride. Be mindful of those teetering effects when trying Pineapple Chunk for the first time — and make sure you have a clean palate to enjoy the spread of flavors.
Looks: Pineapple Chunk’s buds are circular and cone-shaped, and look like a bunch of sticky green thumbs, pebbles or footballs. These dense lime-green nugs have mauve fan leaves and occasional light-purple spots, with peach pistils and moderate trichome coverage.
Pineapples have become too trendy. Don’t believe me? Go to a Target or H&M and you’ll find button-up shirts, shower curtains, cups, underwear and loads of other generic shit decorated with little pineapples. The same people are also abusing cacti — though they probably don’t even know that word and just call them “cactuses,” which is fucking wrong.
Smell: Complex enough to require a few extra sniffs, Pineapple Chunk’s aroma carries heavy, funky hints of cheese and a sharply sweet-and-sour kick, like pineapple juice. Rubbery, piney, almost skunky notes come in at the end.
