Overall rating: 9.5/10
I had been out of the UK for a few weeks when I started to hear about a new CBD shop selling that was selling amazing new strains of CBD flower. That shop was Hemp Hash.
They have quickly made quite a name for themselves in the UK Cbd flower industry with their high-quality, terpene-rich buds, as well as their very affordable priced and exceptional customer service.
This company is doing everything right.
This is a review of one of the newest strains, Pineapple Express. It came in 1st place in the 2018 homegrown cup in Holland so I was more excited than usual to try it. Here goes…
Delivery and packaging: 10/10
First Class signed-for cost me just £2.11, and it turned up the next day.
The buds were inside a white aluminium-lined pouch that had been heat sealed. The pouch was tucked inside some bubble wrap. This kept the the smell in and the buds well preserved.
A perfect looking bud. A striking green in colour and just loaded with trichomes. Even the stalk has a coating of dust-like trichomes. A few orange pistils can be seen.
The structure of the bud is puffy and solid, with a bit of crunch to it. It grinds beautifully and burns well.
Incredible. I said before that this was the best smelling CBD flower I’ve tried, but that title must now be passed to Hemp Hash’s Pineapple Express. It’s a step above and easily competes with top-shelf THC-rich cannabis.
Intensely sweet and fruity. In fact, it has a deep berry-type stench to it. Definitely one for terpene-hunters with a sweet tooth.
Taste (smoking vs vaping)
Sweet and smooth. You can taste he terps with ease. Tropical and fruity.
It’s clear to see why this is a cup-winning CBD flower.
My first round with my V2 pro 7 released a potent cloud of fresh, minty flavour. Not what i was expecting, but I liked it.
Second round I didn’t pack the chamber quite as much. This allowed the sweetness to come through. It tastes a bit like another incredible strain from Hemp Hash, Cookies Kush (which is on sale for £6.50 a gram!), but with slight fruity notes.
This 10% CBD flower provided a very enjoyable, calming experience. Great for relieving anxiety.
I enjoyed this strain with friends and it induced a calm and open atmosphere in the group.
Pineapple Express is £10 for a gram and just under £30 for an eighth. About standard for such a high-quality strain.
However, Hemp Hash have some really amazing prices on other top drawer strains, going as low as £3.50 for a gram of Green Crack.
My new favourite strain, hands down. A sweet and tropical taste that complements its incredible trichome-covered appearance.
Smokes beautifully and you’d never know it wasn’t the ‘real deal’, so to speak. Thanks Hemp Hash, can’t wait to try out the rest of your stock and I’m excited for what’s to come from you!

Cookies Kush is also incredibly sweet and tasty. It’s on sale for £6.50 right now, so I highly recommend getting some before it’s gone.
