Pineapple Strain Heritage
Pineapple Chunk is a combination of three popular strains, Cheese and Skunk#1 with the original Barney’s Pineapple. The lineage of the Chunk can be traced through its smell, as fruity and sweet pineapple undertones combine with the tangy and sour smell of Skunk and Cheese.
What’s interesting about this strain is that while it is dominated by indica genetics, it offers insanely cerebral effects. This is due to an interesting choice of genetics with a long and illustrious history.
The original pineapple was created by Sensi Seeds out of an F2 phenotype of ERSB (Ed Rosenthal Super Bud), which is an indica variety with a focus on sedative effects. The resulting strain was a predominantly indica strain with strong mental and physical effects, that became widely popular as a recreational choice.
The distinctive tropical aroma makes this strain a joy to consume in a joint or in edible form. Overall, Pineapple is a uniquely refreshing strain that spawned countless hybrids, many of which we cover in this article.
Cheese is one of the best known U.K. exports since the 1980s. Its unique flavor and relaxing effects have earned it a place among the most popular strains in the world. Like Pineapple Chunk, Cheese also descends from a Skunk #1 lineage. However, a long time has passed since Cheese was first introduced to the growing world. Breeders like Big Buddha seeds have introduced new genetics to it in order to increase potency and yield.
If there ever was a cannabis strain that didn’t need any introductions even among people who don’t know the first thing about growing, it is Skunk #1. Bred for the first time more than 30 years ago in the Netherlands, this immensely popular strain combines genetics from all over the world: Strains from South and Central America, Thailand, and Afghanistan were combined to produce an indica-dominant cannabis strain that would write its own history.
Skunk #1 became an industry standard and was bred into countless hybrid varieties that bear its genetics. Its smell is so distinct, that “skunky” is its own word among cannabis enthusiasts. The sativa/indica ratio is 35:65, meaning that this is a strain you want to use in times of relaxation.
Taste, Smell And Effect
Barneys Pineapple Chunk has an earthy aroma with a distinct Pineapple twist. The taste reflects this and is a unique combination of sweet citrus and Cheesy Skunk. When smoked, Barneys Pineapple Chunk weed is one of the most potent strains of cannabis available.
With THC levels in some individuals being measured at 25%, mixed with high CBD levels, Barneys Pineapple Chunk is a “sit down and get comfy” weed. Its extremely psychoactive effect will most likely leave you unable to complete any demanding tasks, so save this smoke for a movie night or a gathering with fellow stoner friends. Pineapple Chunk is best enjoyed when there is absolutely nothing to do, so take it easy. Don’t plan on moving for a while.
Medicinal users should be aware that this strain has a small amount of CBD, meaning that is might not be suitable as an anxiolytic. THC has the tendency to put people on edge, so make sure you are comfortable before smoking. It can, however, help with alleviating pain and fighting depression. Strains with insane amounts of THC are not a good solution for insomniaor people with PTSD.
