The Pina Rita Strain is a Sativa dominant strain with a ratio of 80% Sativa and 20% Indica. Also, the THC content is rated at very high levels, up to 75%!

The Pina Rita Strain is very special because it was bred from an old-school strain called the Highland Oaxacan Gold strain. The Highland Oaxacan Gold strain was very popular in the ’70s and ’80s, originating from the Oaxacan Mountains of Mexico. You could even go as far as to say that the Highland Oaxacan Gold strain was the king of all strains during that period. A true legend!

For added complexity and potency, the Highland Oaxacan Gold strain was crossed with the excellent Space Queen strain. The Highland Oaxacan Gold strain is known for its energetic effects and the Space Queen strain is known for putting consumers into positive vibes. So if you want to experience the high of the original hippies together with modern enhancements, the Pina Rita Strain is the one to get!

The careful crossing of the Highland Oaxacan Gold strain with the Space Queen strain resulted in a Sativa dominant strain. This crossing perfected the complexity of the aroma and flavor, almost unrivaled in its kind.

The bouquet that the Pina Rita delivers is very fresh and fruity, with overtones of candy, cherry, and pineapple with fine herbal undertones. This combination makes it one of the most tasteful and enjoyable strains we ever tried. 

To give some technical information for the terpene hunters among us, the terpenes that have been measured are: B-Myrcene: 0.652%, Limonene: 0.410%, B-Caryophyllene: 0.342%

As a bonus, the aesthetic qualities of the Pina Rita plant are wonderful too, with deep lavender purple shades and bright, olive green leaves. And on top of these gorgeous buds is a rich and fluffy blanket of juicy white trichome glands! 

When consumed through combustion or vaporization, the Pina Rita delivers an exceedingly uplifting and happy mood. The euphoric effects of the Pina Rita are of high quality and enjoyable for longer periods. Longer than some other common Sativa dominant strains on the market.

If you are considering growing the Pina Rita Strain by yourself, it is good to know that the Pina Rita Strain can be grown indoors as outdoors. This gives growers more flexibility in choosing their preferred growing location. 

You can expect the Pina Rita plant to grow to a medium height. But if you are interested in larger plants, a growing technique called stretching is definitely possible with the Pina Rita plant, up to twice its size!

When growing indoors the flowering period for this plant will be between 60 to 70 days. When growing outdoors, you can expect to harvest the Pina Rita buds in October. These are average numbers when compared to most strains.

The yield of the Pina Rita strain is pretty average too, but if you learn the right trim techniques to trim it timely into a nice bush, you will be able to expect much better yields, especially when stretched. This requires more experience though from the grower. 

Another important factor to keep in mind when growing the Pina Rita is that it is a photoperiod plant. This means you will need the knowledge and equipment to give the plant the most favorable lighting.

Taking into account all these points, we grade the difficulty level for growing the Pina Rita strain as moderate to advanced.

Medical users rave about the Pina Rita Strain for its uplifting and energetic qualities. These qualities help them fight depression, fatigue, pain, nausea, stress, anxiety, PTSD, and eating disorders.
