Today I’m reviewing the Pineapple Chunk strain grown by Virginia Company.
Pineapple Chunk is legendary for it’s sweet and sour taste. However, I was somewhat let down by the subtlety of the flavor. Yes, I did notice a sweet citrus flavor followed by a somewhat sour lemon, but it was very muted. As I finished the bowl I was left thinking about tacos more than pineapple (it was a Tuesday and I was stoned).
Despite that minor let-down, I enjoyed the smoking experience because it was incredibly smooth. I don’t think I coughed once.
When I finished the bowl I felt very heavy, warm, and sleepy. S and I had started smoking Pineapple Chunk at the beginning of a TV show and could hardly stay awake for the tail end of the show. We had both had long shifts at work that day so we were both a little sore and tired.
When the show ended we headed straight for bed and fell asleep very quickly. I slept like an immovable log for a solid five hours, but felt so rested at that point that I had a hard time sleeping for the normal eight hours. Later the following day I felt really exhausted from those missing hours of sleep.
Though it was a pleasant smoke, I don’t think I will gravitate towards this strain in the future. There are simply plenty of other strains I would rather smoke that are just as relaxing but provide additional benefits, like helping me sleep soundly through the night or make me happy or social, etc.
