Subcool had almost given up on the idea of using Trainwreck in a cross. The Arcata was tall, slow flowering, and had a high chance of gender bending. All this changed the day Subcool met Smokescreen, who had a solution. Finally, Subcool's The Dank had the plant containing the better qualities of Trainwreck without the high chance to hermie (switch genders). Trainwreck, crossed with Trinity, was then pollinated by a male Jack the Ripper owned by Dioxide. The result was Chernobyl - a strain that went on to be one of High Times strains of the Year in 2010. It is a long-lasting, lime-tasting, and mind-melting Sativa-dominant hybrid.
The effects of this strain can last up to three hours and induce a strong euphoria that fills users with an intense energetic buzz. Washing away stress and anxiety, Chernobyl may also reduce nausea and increase appetite. This strain may also help patients suffering from minor aches and migraines.
Retaining the height of its mother, Chernobyl responds well to being pruned. It needs to be supported when it begins flowering. For optimal yields, plants of this strain should be topped early and then trained to take up less vertical space. Chernobyl finishes flowering in eight to nine weeks.

Definitely gave me a boost of energy that made it impossible to sit still and allowed me to multitask like no other. Cleaned the whole apartment on a whim while also cooking dinner while also watching a movie while also playing with the dog while also hanging out with friends while also finishing up some home projects. The downside and reason for 2 stars was the come-down. I ended up with a piercing migraine, dizziness, and exhaustion so bad, about three hours after smoking I crashed for about 5 hours. The high is fun and lasts for hours, but the comedown was just bad enough that I think I’ll be staying clear for a while.
This strain is painful to smoke. Extremely harsh on the throat. A lot of coughing with this one. Could it be all the pesticide or fungi causing all this coughing? I’ll never smoke this strain again. Terrible
This strain is ideal for PTSD and anxiety. It promotes relaxation and eases stress. Love it!
I love this strain so fucking much, if you ever get a little too buzzed in a way that you weren't expecting from a new Sativa and you happen to have some Chernobyl around take a hit of it!! It will literally bring you back to a nice, stoney neutral state ~ it will be like a time warp dude! As if you never even had the anxiety in the first place. That's what happened to me the first time I ever smoked this bud, it is seriously my favorite strain. :-) It blew away all my anxiety that I had gotten from smoking new cannabis from Humboldt, California for the first time when I first moved here like four years ago. I was honestly surprised when I came onto this app and saw that Chernobyl was a Sativa because I honestly thought it was an Indica this entire time. Or at least a hybrid, but but mostly Indica. It makes you feel so good you literally have no anxiety when you're smoking it. I definitely recommend. Five stars. Thumbs. Up.
