- This Indica-heavy hybrid might leave you vulnerable to some pretty crazy dreams.
See, Pineapple is one of those strains that just shoots the stress right out of you, which is nice but leaves you vulnerable, while White Fire OG (which fuses Fire OG and The White) is a partial Sativa that keeps you active and brainy even as it floors you. So it’s a high that makes you feel like a very active brain in a jar or something, vibrating ideas. The high is heavy, like an elephant, or to steal a really good phrase from Les Rallizes Dénudés: “heavier than a death in the family.” My experiences with Pineapple White Fire were, well, a little terrifying, belying its Sailor Moon-esque name, its sugary taste, and its almost dirty blond surfer hair coloration.
scenario would start to foment.
Finally, it all peaked with a moment where I was again back in my apartment, but sitting near a bookshelf was this dude, whose upper body was really long and tall and he was sitting there, his back facing me, Jesus Christ was it terrible. I don’t even know what to do with that one. I experience sleep paralysis and night terrors pretty frequently (I never have pleasant dreams) so I’m maybe especially susceptible (and generally, smoking helps me with night terrors) but what Pineapple White Fire unleashed seems like one of those truly bonkers variables worth noting. I also mention it because if the combination of smoking this and falling asleep does this to you too, there is a way in which it’s a wild trip and you may enjoy it the way some people enjoy roller coasters.
