I don’t want to be too hard on Orgrow Pineapple Chunk since it’s an honest gram sold at an honest price. It’s no Taj Mahal, however, and anyone saying different is delusional.
It’s high time cannabis producers everywhere pack their balls back in their pants and get back to the business of keeping it real. The time for flexing and forcing your way onto dispensary shelves is over — very few are the best of the best, and if you aren’t it, just fill your niche.
So, Orgrow Pineapple Chunk isn’t organic, it isn’t high-grade, and it’s grown using questionable technologies in questionable facilities. The end result is an entirely acceptable gram from a company that will do very well as one of Yakima Valley’s only suppliers of low-to-mid-tier rec weed.
It’s a gram of flower in a bag. That has never been the most convenient thing in the world, and it isn’t about to start now.
Buying my Orgrow grams from Cannabis & Glass in Liberty Lake was a piece of cake, though. I highly recommend the two more outlying locations of this multi-shop chain since they offer curbside pickup.
The texture and moistness of my Orgrow buds was average, which is actually saying a lot. To avoid mycotoxin contamination, cannabis producers have a bad habit of over-drying their buds.
So, I’ve smoked buds that were worse to handle. At the same time, the overall convenience of my Orgrow experience was nothing to write home about.
To me, Pineapple chunk had that sort of vague dankness that often arises from hybrids that are mostly earthy and skunky. This strain also had a bit of cheese flavor to it, and let’s not forget that overpowering sour aroma that is somewhat reminiscent of pineapple.
The effects of my Pineapple Chunk gram came on quickly even if they came on sort of unimpressively. It’s pretty hard to mess up activation time — the only major factor that causes this issue is extremely low potency.
I wasn’t unduly impressed by the effects of Pineapple Chunk. I hadn’t tried this strain before, and after learning about its ancestry, I discovered why I was so nonplussed.
Still, Orgrow Pineapple Chunk is the type of solid bag of weed I would have gone gaga over a decade ago at the height of prohibition. It’s amazing how spoiled we’ve become, huh?
It’s not worth $10 a gram, but $10 is a price I’m willing to pay for a gram. Actually, I don’t like paying less than that for 1g of cannabis — isn’t it funny how psychology works?
If this gram were marketed at $8, I would immediately think it’s low-quality even though that’s about what it’s actually worth. Sold for $10, however, I assume Orgrow’s Pineapple Chunk is higher-quality than it is, increasing my satisfaction and reducing the potential of buyer’s remorse.
Coming from one of Eastern Washington’s most obscure subregions, Orgrow has the cards stacked against it when it comes to distribution. At Orgrow’s disposal, however, is the population of the Spokane metro area, which is home to Washington’s second-largest city.
While Orgrow’s acceptable grows probably wouldn’t make any splash in the Seattle market, Spokane is more receptive. There’s an enduring place for Orgrow in the region, and if you’re a lover of cheap weed that hits the spot, “Orgrow” is a brand handle you’ll want to remember.
I feel like Pineapple Chunk is the kind of strain a GenXer who smoked weed in the early 90s would be nostalgic for. Breeding has come a long way since then, leaving quaint crosses like Pineapple Chunk in the dust.
While this strain is incapable of doing anything the newfangled models can’t do twice as well, it’s a solid choice if you have strain fatigue and just want something simple. In my experience, Pineapple Chunk is an average hybrid, and Orgrow is an average brand.
Orgrow Pineapple Chunk is an normal-potency gram. So, you should break it into anywhere from 2-6 doses and use it your favorite way.
For joints, only roll two or three at most. Small bowls can stretch this gram into six or even seven doses. Don’t expect to be high longer than a day.
Let’s wrap up with some answers to questions you might be asking about Orgrow or Pineapple Chunk:
Orgrow is in Moxee, Washington, which is located in the Yakima Valley area on the eastern side of the state. Yakima itself is a pretty tiny city, and to my knowledge, Orgrow is one of the biggest cannabis producers in the area.
Just to be abundantly clear, Orgrow is not based in Oregon. It’s kind of a weirdly chosen name for a brand that isn’t organic and isn’t based in Oregon, but oh well.
Pineapple Chunk is a strain so complicated it’ll make your head spin. Yet, it’s also deceptively simple. Skunk #1, Pineapple, and Cheese come together to produce a wholesome hybrid that’s close enough to landrace strains to be straightforward but just artisan enough to tickle your connoisseur sensibilities.
In terms of effects, Pineapple Chunk leans toward the sativa end of the hybrid spectrum and is a common pick for insomnia. This strain probably isn’t strong enough to give you couch-lock though.
For a $10 gram, sure. Is this the best bud the universe ever smiled down upon? Definitely not.
Fans of Pineapple Chunk or strains like it won’t be disappointed by Orgrow’s rendition. Cannabis users explicitly seeking out the connoisseur experience, though, might look elsewhere.
