Pineapple Kush: A Tasty Tropical Treat

With an average THC concentration of roughly 18%, a few tokes is all it takes for Pineapple Kush to start taking effect. You can expect a strong initial euphoria coupled with cerebral stimulation. Then, expect some iconic indica body stimulus that’ll slowly ease you into a deep state of relaxation.
