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.

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.
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.

I’ve seen Pineapple Chunk at Colorado Harvest Company, Herbs4You, Oasis Cannabis Superstores, Pineapple Exchange and Northern Lights Cannabis Co. My favorite chunks come from Northern Lights, which sources its plump, fruity buds from wholesale growers, while Pineapple Exchange and Herbs4You both sell solid cuts.
A Dutch import from Amsterdam breeder Barney’s Farm, Pineapple Chunk carries more substance than flash compared to Pineapple Express. 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.
