Pineapple Upside Down Cake Strain Review | Righteous Bush

Pineapple Upside Down Cake by Righteous Bush is a hybrid cultivar that crosses Pineapple Trainwreck with Cookie Monster, which should provide an uplifting high that can improve mood, relieve pain, and provide a nice euphoric high that lasts hours. I remember as a kid the first time I had pineapple upside-down cake (the actual desert, not cannabis). It was sweet but acidic pineapple rings on top of an even sweeter cake, with maraschino cherries on top to boot. I was amazed that such a thing existed, and it was my first love of pineapple. I love it on my pizza, on burgers, and in my tropical drinks. Now there is a cannabis strain to potentially love as well! Let’s dig into this potentially delicious treat and see if it lives up to its name.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake Lineage

Pineapple Upside Down Cake Lineage

Pineapple upside down cake comes from two different lines of cannabis phenotypes. One side is the infamous GSC line, backcrossed with OG Kush to create Cookie Monster. Then on the other side, you have the ever popular Pineapple Express backcrossed with the even more popular Trainwreck to create Pineapple Trainwreck. Back crossing is frequently done by the grower to express specific preferred qualities or to lessen the ones they don’t want in a new strain.

Review and Scores

Appearance: 9 – Nice dense buds, with a light trichome frosting covering the bud. If I had just seen some more resin goodness, and felt a little more sticky on the end of the fingers this could easily have become a 10. But that is just being nitpicky.

Aroma: 10 – Ok, this gets a 10 for aroma for sure. Sweet, citrusy, and just a slight hint of funk round out the aroma of this bud. When ground up, the pineapple and citrus aroma comes out quite strong. I think I had a brief flashback to my childhood and a big slice of upside-down cake on my plate.

Flavor: 10 – BAMM! This is also a 10, and the flavor is out of this world. Citrus and pineapple flavor to compliment the aroma, with a cookie backbone to give that bready, doughy flavor. It’s all I can do to keep from just eating a bud; that would be a horrible idea because it won’t taste good that way, and it would be a waste of good weed.

Effects: 10 – This one hits really fast, and the high lasts a long time. The first thing I feel is a wave of euphoria that spreads across the mind and body. My legs get a little wobbly, and my senses are on a ride due to the heavy psychedelic effects of this one. 21% THC?!?! You would not guess it from this; it feels more like an upper 20s or low 30s strain in my opinion.

Final Score out of 10: 9.75 – Drop everything you are doing and come to The White Rabbit immediately to purchase!

The Final Puff

This was an absolutely amazing strain to review. From the delicious aroma and flavor, to the outstanding effects. This one took me for a ride that I plan on going on again tonight. I would not suggest smoking this right before bed as it does start out a little energetic, but as time passes this one settles down and allows you to go to sleep and have amazing rest and amazing dreams.
