Question: Is Pineapple Express Weed the same as Legal Weed?
(and YES that stuff in the movie came from International Oddities! -see link below for story)
Everyone seems to want to know if there really is a strain of weed called Pineapple Express, or maybe it's just some fictional name made up for the movie? And is it the same thing as Legal Weed?
One of the trailers for the Pineapple Express movie supposedly showed a guy that lists 4 different strains to describe how potent the weed called Pineapple Express is. At least some of the strains he named like Northern Lights do in fact exist. All this has sparked the question, Does anyone know if Pineapple Express is actually a real strain out there? And if there wasn't one before, there probably is now. Anybody can grow any type of weed and then call it Pineapple Express and smokers will probably buy it, now that the movie is out.
In the movie, this Pineapple Express strain is a new powerful strain so rare and fantastic that the bad guys can identify the dudes just by finding the pineapple express that they left behind. So, is Pineapple Express a real strain? Some say pineapple express is a real strain that has a fruity taste with the smell of pineapples and comes from Hawaii. Is it just very rare? Is it found on the West coast and Hawaii, where a jetstream from Hawaii and Canada picks up dirt and deposits it where pot is grown, so that a very specialized crop is produced?
Others say Pineapple is a killer strain, but Pineapple Express is made-up, just for the movie. Various online seed stores have listed a Pineapple strain for sale, so perhaps that part is true.
In the movie Pineapple Express the actors were smoking
legal weed from International Oddities, and it was included in most scenes, so one could say that the legal weed helped the actors to remain in character. The smell is certainly a familiar smell, and as the legal weed smokes were used throughout the movie, that might cause one to wonder if legal weed is the same as Pineapple Express weed. International Oddities says that although the products used in the movie weren't intended to have a pineapple-y smell, they could be considered to have a raw, fruity quality by some smokers standards.
As there was no official Pineapple Express strain of marijuana before the movie was conceived, it stands to reason, that the legal weed used in the movie could also be referred to as Pineapple Express weed, and is therefore a legal weed (available only to the movie industry at the current time). This is the legally smokable product that was smoked onstage at the 2008 MTV music awards that caused such an uproar.
