Trainwreck strain begins its speedy hurtle through the mind with a surge of euphoria, awakening creativity and happiness. Migraines, pain, and arthritis are mowed down by Trainwreck’s high THC content, and many patients also use it for relief of anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and PTSD. Trainwreck flowers finish up in early October outdoors, while indoor gardens are ready for harvest 8 weeks into flowering.
A legendary Northern California strain, Trainwreck is known for its potent and soaring Sativa effects package. It’s lemon-lime + menthol + acrid smell and taste is famous worldwide. The plant itself often looks gray due to the heavy trichome coverage and has a vine-like heavily Sativa structure with minimal leaf count and large calyxes.
Unknown, likely (Lowland Thai x Mexican Sativa) x Afghani
Trainwreck is thought to be a combination of a Lowland Thai variety that was brought back to the US in an attempt to mimic Thai Stick. Crossing that with a Mexican Sativa (brick weed) and Afghani stock produced this plant that finishes fairly quickly once flowering is triggered. The strain was perfected and popularized in Humboldt County, California, particularly Arcata, where the “E-32? (meaning type E, 32nd rotation) Trainwreck became the eventual popular “mother”.
Citrus-menthol-pine is the dominant smell — it’s sharp with an occasional fruitiness creeping through
Citrus-dominant, sometimes carrying an acrid, fuely component and the same mentholated quality from the smell
Sometimes racy, but always very potent, Trainwreck is in the “crusher Sativa” mold, delivering a nearly incapacitating package of mental effects that can be overwhelming to many patients. It has shown benefits with nausea, migraines, and pain relief.
Works great for SCROG — watch out at the end of flower, because true Trainwreck weed almost always gets hermaphrodite flowers appearing late in the cycle… often they’re impotent, but it’s wise to keep a close eye on them to avoid pollinating itself and other plants in your garden.
