[Shimla x Pineapple][65% Indica]
We play a fun game at the dispensary that I work for where we like to ask ‘What is your spirit fruit?’. It all stems from the lovely lemon faery that I mentioned in my review of Moby Dick. Basically it’s like a spirit animal, but a fruit! Well I tell you all of this because my spirit fruit is a Pineapple, and Pineapple Queen (also known as Pine Queen) could also be called my spirit strain.
It has a divine fruit filled smell and harnesses all of the beautiful Indica properties that heal my heart while still keeping an active mind. We slowly toked on a gram of this nug while cowboying on horseback for six straight hours, let me tell you that my sit bones would not have made it without the queen involved. I believe there is a dispute between growers between the name Pine Queen and Pineapple Queen, but since I’m a pineapple I will go with the latter.
How Does It Hit Your Senses?
Each bud is so dense it’s a waste not to use a proper herb grinder when preparing it for toking. Each fat pine tree changes between a dark forest green and a frosted emerald green. Pistils are dispersed in light orange brown tufts throughout each nugget. When you get your nose into it you’ll first experience a rich tropical pineapple aroma followed by a sweet sandalwood finish. The taste is just as delicious as the smell. You can taste the pineapple notes and rich musk so intensely when you finally take a hit.
Pine Queen is an easier strain to grow, it gets huge quickly and flowers in 9-13 weeks.
What is the Effect?
Effects take place almost immediately and are quite strong. You will immediately feel sedated and relaxed, these things combined can create a silliness in your mood. Attempting to do work or any task that requires complete focus can be hard when medicating with Pine Queen. You will definitely experience a heavy eye and a release of pressure in your cranium. In my experience I feel the pressure in my brain release and melt way the neck and shoulder pain that haunts my daily existence. This is very welcome, if you couldn’t tell. Ride out the effects, it may be intense at first to feel the release of your tensions and for a beginner it can get a bit uncomfortable at first. This is why I recommend trying a strain when you are in a completely comfortable place with people you trust, if not alone.
You’ll get a solid 3-5 hours of effects from Pineapple Queen, she’s a strong lady. Enjoy this beauty if you’ve been very stressed out. She will help to stimulate your appetite if you’re body actually needs food, no unnecessary munchies here. As you reach the middle hours of the effects you’ll feel a soft relaxation carry you through until they wear off. An advanced patient can use this for daytime pain relief but beginners should always stick to the evening with this one.
