About Trainwreck

Trainwreck is a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis with a spicy taste reminiscent of pepper. Like many Sativa hybrids Trainwreck provides a very intense cerebral high with effects that are mood enhancing and euphoric.

What makes Trainwreck different from many other hybrid strains is that it still displays most of its Indica effects as well - covering the body in a nice, warm, pain-numbing buzz.

Trainwreck, when it is properly grown, retains the lazy couchlock feelings of an Indica and the cerebral stimulation of a Sativa, making it an extremely popular and sought after strain in cannabis dispensaries. Apart from the usual dryness of mouth and eyes, some users may experience paranoia, anxiety and dizziness.

Even with its Indica effects in tact, Trainwreck still provides a mostly-Sativa high with ADHD, PTSD and stress most often listed as its top medical uses. Properly grown Trainwreck is also used to alleviate chronic joint aches and muscle stiffness. From many user's accounts only a few hits are needed to induce both the cerebral effects and a body high complete with couchlock.

This strain was supposedly the creation of two Californian brothers back in the late 1970s. It is a mix of three other strains Thai (Sativa), Mexican (Sativa) and Afghani (Indica). In its true form, Trainwreck is ninety percent Sativa and only ten percent Indica. As the story goes the two brothers had to pull their crop early because there was a nasty train wreck that happened near their grow site and they didn't want it discovered, thus the name.

Trainwreck can grow well both indoors and outdoors. Plants of this strain grow fairly tall but the Indica in them causes them fill out well. Inside grown in hydro a single plant can yield up to 500 grams in a square meter. When grown in soil outside Trainwreck plants are ready for harvesting early October and can yield up to 700 grams. This strain flowers somewhere between eight and ten weeks.

For the longest time Trainwreck was only available in clone form but more recently a few places have been able to recreate seeds of the strain. There are several others that have tried to imitate the strain under the same name, some with great success. Real Trainwreck will have thin leaves and dense buds full of resin. The buds give off a strong citrus smell as they ripen.

Trainwreck also makes great brownies, I think it might be even better than vaping or smoking it.

Tried this a year ago as a disposable vape pen. The Toko pen was great, the strain itself was just ok... not particularly memorable in any way. A mixed cerebral and body high, a kind of buzzy experience that kept me in my head.

Love it, best high I’ve had in a few years, considering I use the vape tanks and it’s rated right around 80% thc

Train wreck should be marketed as Viagra for women. If you are a woman and have had a tough time of it and wanna get in the mood, give Train wreck a try. It has worked for me for years. We always have a jar of T.W. to get high and fly. I rate it a 10
