Bred by TGA/Subcool, the female used to breed Chernobyl was from a seed Subcool found in a sample of Trainwreck he got from a grower called Smokescreen.
This was the first experience with this strain for most of our crew, and it was thought to be an overall very pleasant experience, suitable for getting some work done or exercising a creative muscle. Its lasting effects with a long linger and very solid initial potency made up for the somewhat lacking taste and smell, which were just not particularly pungent or memorable. The minor grow flaws took this one down a notch, and we'd like to see it in perfect condition… but it was still very nice to look at and provided an easy, enjoyable experience.

This strain had a rather light smell that had a floral citrus quality to it, with some piney sharpness coming out after grinding. It was pleasant but not very pungent, a soft Sativa smell.
While one reviewer really liked the flavor of this sample, the majority of us felt it was simply average in the taste area, with a piney citrus flavor that wasn't remarkable. Though it wasn't pungent or overtly flavorful, it was a rather smooth smoke that didn't expand much, making it a good choice for patients who don't wish to cough.
Though it started off with a collection of head, eye, and chest pressure effects, we had some divergent opinions depending on which time of day we medicated. One reviewer who medicated early in the morning got a very potent-feeling package of cerebral effects that included some visual and auditory distortions. The other reviewers who medicated later in the day had more of a relaxing experience, with only a slight uptick in physical energy to start and a pervading mental energy that kept up throughout the experience. As it diminished entering 2 hours, a fairly typical "Sativa crash" had us feeling a bit groggy but still functional.
