About Lazy Train
Lazy Train is an indica-leaning hybrid created by prolific breeders Exotic Genetix. This hard-to-find strain is a cross between potent Qrazy Train and aromatic Lavender. It brings a solid balance between mental and physical effects, with THC levels of between 15% and 20%.
Lazy Train establishes its bag appeal right off the bat with medium to large-sized buds. These chunky flowers hold together in conical clusters that have a fairly loose, sativa-inflected structure. The long, spindly leaves are a mossy mix of spring green and yellow, with the occasional flash of purple peeking through. It’s finished with an especially thick coating of sticky, amber-colored trichomes covers all visible surfaces of these flowers.
On initial inspection, buds of Lazy Train give off an herbal, haze-like aroma. A closer whiff may reveal deep notes of pine and soil, but when busted up, this strain can yield some funky, almost fermented odors. When burnt, Lazy Train gives off a thick, acrid smoke that’s likely to cause watery eyes or a few coughs. When exhaling, this smoke has a vegetal and slightly sour flavor.
Contrary to its name, Lazy Train doesn’t take long before starting to flex its dynamic effects. Consumers may still be coughing on the strain's smoke as they start to feel some facial sensations, such as flushing in the cheeks; a tight, constricted feeling around the temples has also been commonly reported. Once adjusted, users are granted access to an altered state in which ideas may seem to move quickly or take on a new gravitas. This kind of cerebral stimulation can help with anything from brainstorming sessions to detailed, regimented tasks. However, in certain situations, its mental properties may also manifest in sensory distortion, leading to trippy phenomena like time dilation.
After about an hour, depending on dosage, Lazy Train begins to release some palpable physical effects. A tingle of relaxation that starts in the spine may roll outward through the core, relaxing tense muscles that allows for deep, easy breathing. It’s at this point that busy or active smokers may find themselves gravitating to the closest comfortable surface. Those who are lucky enough to already be lounging, can easily start to sink in with their surroundings, as any outside stressors feel irrelevant. In its later stages, Lazy Train is better suited to passive activities like snacking or binge-watching. Because of the gradual decrease in energy, this strain is recommended for consumption starting in late afternoon, when it can be fully appreciated.
Recreationally versatile smoke, Lazy Train also has several benefits for medical cannabis patients. The cerebral mood that comes with its onset can help enhance concentration for those with ADD, and its ability to improve mood can also help with symptoms of stress and depression. Lazy Train may alleviate some physical pain, whether it’s temporary due to injury, or chronic, as caused by conditions like fibromyalgia or arthritis. In a totally relaxed setting, this sedative strain may even lull insomniacs to sleep. However, because it comes with some possibility of frantic, disorienting “mind-race” it’s not recommended for patients who are prone to panic, or who are less experienced with THC.
Fortunately for home growers, Exotic Genetix has made seeds of Lazy Train available for sale online. It can be grown in controlled indoor conditions or outdoors in a humid, Mediterranean-like climate. Plants tend to be of average height and may require occasional pruning of any large, light-blocking fan leaves. Growers who want to highlight the strain’s array of blues and purples should briefly expose their crops to nighttime temperatures between 55 and 65 degrees, just before flowering begins. Lazy Train reaches maturity within a relatively brief eight to nine weeks.
As fun to toke alone as it is to share with friends, Lazy Train is worth seeking out by indica and sativa fans alike. Its high resin content may also make the strain valuable for producing THC concentrates like hash oil.
