More Information: Pineapple Poundcake is one of those happy accident projects that just came together brilliantly all on its own. While hunting through a selection of Mandala Seed's exceptional sativa dominant "Krystalica" (High Times Strain of the Year" 2011) we just happened to be growing a selection of our own Lucky OG Kush seed stock that produced a single interesting phenotype with intense resin production that smelled exactly, and we do mean exactly, like fresh ripe pineapple. As Krystalica was already impressing us with its massive colas of glistening trichomes and exotic pineapple-fruit salad aroma, this cross was beyond obvious. The resulting Pineapple Poundcake was so named for its sweet Hawaiian pineapple aroma combined with its mega-chunky yields that will please any serious cash cropper.
Give her plenty of root space and rich organic soil and she will reward you with giant, dense buds that sparkle like diamonds. Carbon filtration will be absolutely necessary to cover the intense aroma of fresh juicy pineapple underscored with powerful OG funk. Easily the best smelling and tasting buds you will find anywhere, with an upbeat and cheerful high that medicates and elevates with zero paranoia or raciness even in large doses.
Pineapple Poundcake oozes with resin from the earliest stages of flowering, and will pack layer upon layer of fresh sticky bracts into massive buds. Be sure to keep an eye on humidity levels late in flowering to ensure you don’t lose any of these big beautiful flowers to botrytis. Although, truth be told, the Nepalese landrace genetics contained within the Krystalica father certainly increase mold and mildew resistance beyond what one would normally expect from a AAA class commercial production strain of this caliber.
For medical purposes, we've found Pineapple Poundcake to be very effective for treating nausea and poor appetite while also producing a very pleasant mood elevation that is so welcome when dealing with illness of any kind. Women also report excellent results using Pineapple Poundcake to sooth painful menstrual cramps while still keeping alert and functional. An interesting characteristic of this strain is that it medicates well in small doses without inducing sedation, but if rest and recuperation is required, a larger dose will bring on a more narcotic-like effect to help you get to sleep. This dual personality of Pineapple Poundcake makes it an excellent one-size-fits-all strain to keep in your roster.
Customers have also reported that Pineapple Poundcake is very easy to grow outdoors thanks to its landrace genetics, and has been successfully harvested at full ripeness in the very cold and wet autumn conditions of the Canadian outdoors around the end of September. As a bonus, outdoor growers will be rewarded with a stunning display of beautiful fall colours as the plants enter senescence.
