Type: sativa-dominant hybrid
Ancestry: Mexican and Thai sativas and Afghani indica
Creators: 2 brothers from the Emerald Triangle in Northern California, the biggest cannabis-producing region in the U.S.A.
THC Content: 18-26%
Terpenes: terpinolene, myrcene, pinene, caryophyllene, limonene
Appearance: In this case, the cover matches the beautiful insides. Solid, conical-shaped, olive-green buds, tightly interlaced with fiery pistils, all glowing with the thick frost of the abundant trichomes.
Aroma and Taste: The initial smell is a rush of citrus with sweet, fruity undertones. The fruitiness carries into the taste, enriched by hints of menthol, pine, and spices.
Trivia: As legend has it, a train wreck in the 1970s near the two Northern California brothers’ grow site forced them to harvest their crop early in order to keep it secret, hence the name.
Trainwreck literally gives this strain a bad (although intriguing nevertheless) name, as many people naturally assume it will reduce them to a brain-dead wreck for the rest of the day. They couldn’t be more wrong!
Despite being sativa-dominant, Trainwreck is as hybrid as it gets, not just blending the best of both cannabis worlds, but taking you on a long, seamless journey from one to the other.
First, of course, is the sativa realm, which you will skyrocket into after just a couple of hits. Up there, your mind will waft among the endless blue skies of euphoria, all while your body floats on the cloud-like couch – a glimpse into the indica realm. At some point, Trainwreck’s cerebral effects can reveal shades of psychedelics, inviting you into a slowed-down state of introspection and reflection, where the initial euphoria can grow into a deeper, overarching sense of joy.
As more time imperceptibly goes by, the indica side slowly and gently starts to take over, forming a unity between your body and the couch that will seem seemingly unbreakable. The full-body relaxation, along with the afterglow of the cerebral buzz, defines many cannabis lovers’ idea of bliss. After a while, you might find yourself drifting to sweet dreams.
Best Time of Day to Use
With all that in mind, Trainwreck is the perfect after-work and/or day-off strain. Not only will you make the most of your time, but better yet, time will seem a lot more altogether, saturated with strong mental buzz, good vibes, valuable introspective moments or perhaps even revelations, and capped off by good, old-fashioned relaxation.
Some people who suffer from depression consider Trainwreck a godsend, not just powerful enough to uplift their heavy spirits, but also positive and blissful enough to help their healing.
The full-body high is great for alleviating muscle tension, soreness, and chronic pain.
However, keep in mind that Trainwreck is very strong and potent and may NOT be suitable for people who suffer from anxiety, as the high THC count can actually backfire and switch sides, only adding fuel to the fire.
