About Cherry Trainwreck
The Cherry Trainwreck strain (sometimes spelled, “Cherry Train Wreck”) is a sleep-inducing strain variety with a beefy THC level of around 19% bolstered by up to 1.4% CBD. The breeder remains a mystery, which has also led to the strain’s genetic heritage being shrouded in doubt. It is thought that it could be a cross between Cherry Bomb and Trainwreck, though some say it’s a Cherry Bomb phenotype. Continue reading to learn about what Cherry Trainwreck can do on its own, even if it’s hard to nail down its exact origins.
The strain flowers in around 57-71 days, which is a pretty wide window. It’s a decent yielder, giving you around 300g inside and 400g per plant when grown outside. It also gets taller outside, up to 90 inches in height, while inside you can expect closer to 60-80 inches. Its heritage includes Afghanistan and Colombia, going back to the landraces that grew there, which passed their primary traits down to this little lemony creativity-booster.
The strain’s terpene profile is unique, with camphene representing roughly half of its flavors. Camphene gives off lemony, spicy-herbal flavors at first but evolves into a smokey chestnut flavor. This combines with limonene, the classic citrus terpene, and nerolidol, which is earthy and nutty and gives Cherry Trainwreck a deeper flavor. If you’re observant enough, you may be able to taste a whiff of pear in there.
The effects of the strain favor feelings of sleepy concentration. The impact of Cherry Trainwreck evolves as you smoke, starting with a focusing, creativity-aiding high that progresses through stages of talkative energy and uplifting arousal before finally settling into sleepy sedation. This is why we recommend this strain for the evening as a relaxing late-day hangout strain that could potentially lead you to bed.
Users report feeling physically relieved by this strain, though some experience paranoia and a rapid heartbeat due to overstimulation. If you can handle the strain’s energizing, creativity-provoking high, it should fit right into any evening when you’re kicked back but can handle being amped up by a little focused creativity. Cherry Trainwreck pairs well with creative hobbies, a late-night date, a light workout around the house, and other low-key evening pastimes. The plant itself is vibrant and light green, with a smattering of trichomes and bright orange hairs.
