Overview of Trainwreck

When smoked, the bud can taste earthy and spicy while the harshness of the smoke lingers in your throat. By the time you finish consuming, Trainwreck's high should have settled and pleasantly warm you up.

Trainwreck is largely available as clones but seeds have cropped up in the market. Warning: seeds can be hit or miss. When growing, real Trainwreck will cultivate a strong, citrus smell as they ripen and produce resin-coated, think leaves as a part of dense nugs.

Lineage of Trainwreck

Trainwreck's lineage is a contested and slightly confusing tale, rumoring the strain a cross between Arcata US and another, unknown strain. While the Arcata Trainwreck is a popular sativa in its own right, most cannabis connoisseurs promote an even more muddled origin story. There are rumors that that bud grew out of Northern California in the 1970s from two landrace strains Thai and Mexican crossed with an Afghani indica strain. Apparently, a train crash near the grow site spooked the growers into plucking their crop early - and thus Trainwreck was born.

Growing Trainwreck

Home growers can expect the strain to do well both indoors and outdoors. The dualistic nature of the strain causes plants to grow tall and broad. Outdoor plants will be ready to harvest by early October and can produce a yield up to 700 grams. Grown indoors, a singular hydro plant of Trainwreck can produce as much as three (2) to four (4) ounces per square foot. Generally, it takes the strain eight to ten weeks to flower.

Trainwreck nugs tend to be dense with distinctive and thin green leaves coated with a healthy layer of resin. The green buds are a bit on the lighter side, streaked with orange hairs and covered in crystals.
