This is the second time I am smoking a Piña joint. The first time was last week when I went to meet the Local Boys for an interview. They had just received their delivery of Piña from an upcountry farm and I was lucky enough to sit down and try it out. The immediate effects, fragrance and odor were all great—and I will write more about it below—but they had also got their hands on some organic Squirrel Tail, of course we had to smoke that as well. In short the Squirrel Tail smelled a bit off, tasted alright, and felt like a decent sativa. But I digress. On to Piña—take 2!
Piña buds are dense, green, and covered in light green hairs. The bud has a sweet and creamy scent, pleasant and mild. But while the fragrance does not hit you in the face—it nonetheless will permeate and perfume a room (or patio in our particular case). It takes a few puffs to get the full flavor of the bud, but once it emerges the flavor is rich, earthy and mildly fruity.
Piña does not get you stoned, but it provides a great social high, perfect for sitting with a group of new friends. The immediate effects are a slight pressure in the head and lowering of inhibitions. The strain has a good body effect with users feeling chill, relaxed and slightly flighty. As mentioned above, this is a social strain and users will be happy, chatty, engaged and alert. This is a good strain to operate through your normal day to day (evening to evening) activities and will not throw you off your game.
Piña is recommended for either novice or experienced users. It is a good starting strain for novice users interested in cannabis. Piña is gentle, happy, chill and has a pleasant high which does not dip into the realm of being stoned. Experienced users will appreciate Piña as good daytime or early evening strain, perfect for socializing and light activity.
