Originating from Northern California's “Emerald Triangle” is the infamous Trainwreck strain. It derives from two Sativa strains with Mexican and Thai lineage and is crossed with an Afghani Indica strain. To this day, people still debate the origin of the name. Some say it was named to reflect its mighty effects, while others say it got the name because it was grown by a railway crash site.
This strain delivers a heavy dose of THC, so it's become a favorite strain of cannabis connoisseurs. The fast-acting effects give users a nice head buzz followed by a creative energy that can lift you out of a state of depression. Trainwreck can get you into the present moment, by increasing your awareness and heightening all your senses. The Indica element of this strain will eventually reduce the uplifting effects and help you restore and relax.
It's fairly easy to grow Trainwreck indoors because it likes warm temperatures where frost is not an issue. Also, an indoor grow means your plants are ready to harvest in 10 weeks. Whereas, an outdoor grow could take a few more weeks and needs to be ready by late September. Although this is a Sativa-dominant strain, it grows like an Indica strain with sturdy and thick stems and a short and wide appearance. These plants can achieve 150cm in height and yield 500gr/m².
When Trainwreck's flowers reach maximum potency, they'll have tight, dense and sticky buds. The orange hairs and frosty resin glow in the most beautiful way. Its aroma is deeply earthy and can be accompanied by a musky scent. There's also a hit of piney sweetness and a delightful lemon-lime smell.
As a strain that made the 'Strongest Cannabis Strains' list, you can expect Trainwreck to provide a high potency that will get you high quickly. This plant has a short flowering time, is easy to grow, and is well-balanced between its dominant Sativa genetics and mild-moderate Indica strength. Also, users love it for its ability to reduce symptoms of PTSD and anxiety.
The taste of Trainwreck is subtle, yet pleasant. Those who smoke it enjoy the soft flavors. Plus, it has a smooth smoke with only a minimal throat hit. When you take a pull from your pipe, the taste of tangy lemon and pepper comes through and is followed by lingering earthy and woodsy notes.
