As a balanced sativa/indica hybrid, tokers get the best of both worlds with Golden Pineapple. The high is energetic, but not racy. There is a slight body high to accompany the cerebral euphoria, but the strain does not cause heavy couchlock. It's a nice strain for a walk on a sunny day or listening to some good jam band tunes like Phish, the Grateful Dead or even Pink Floyd. In larger doses the head high can get similar to a haze strain, but in most cases users will feel a nice mix of different cannabis effects that doesn't lean excessively toward one feature.
Medical marijuana patients are given prescriptions of Golden Pineapple to mitigate symptoms of stress, depression and fatigue. The strain can also be used to battle headaches, loss of appetite, nausea and PTSD. Apart from the usual dry eyes and dry mouth, Golden Pineapple can cause anxiety, dizziness and paranoia among some smokers. In occasional cases, the strain can cause minor headaches as well.
Because of its energetic cerebral high, Golden Pineapple is a nice morning wake-and-bake strain. It is also appropriate as an afternoon pick-me-up, or even as an early evening boost for recreational activities after work such as recreational sports or playing music. While Golden Pineapple is not the ideal nighttime strain, its energizing buzz will wear off enough so that it does not hinder the user's ability to fall asleep.
Indoor grows of Golden Pineapple have a flowering time of eight to nine weeks, with outdoor harvests coming in late September or early October. Some growers tilt slightly more toward the sativa side when producing Golden Pineapple, making it closer to a 70% sativa-dominant hybrid rather than the traditional even balance.
