Description

A legendary Northern California strain, Trainwreck is known for its potent and soaring Sativa effects package.  It's lemon-lime + menthol + acrid smell and taste is famous worldwide.  The plant itself often looks gray due to the heavy trichome coverage and has a vine-like heavily Sativa structure with minimal leaf count and large calyxes.

Lineage

Unknown, likely (Lowland Thai x Mexican Sativa) x Afghani

Story

Trainwreck is thought to be a combination of a Lowland Thai variety that was brought back to the US in an attempt to mimic Thai Stick.  Crossing that with a Mexican Sativa (brick weed) and Afghani stock produced this plant that finishes fairly quickly once flowering is triggered.  The strain was perfected and popularized in Humboldt County, California, particularly Arcata, where the "E-32? (meaning type E, 32nd rotation) Trainwreck became the eventual popular "mother".

Aroma

Citrus-menthol-pine is the dominant smell — it's sharp with an occasional fruitiness creeping through

Flavor

Citrus-dominant, sometimes carrying an acrid, fuely component and the same mentholated quality from the smell

Qualities

Sometimes racy, but always very potent, Trainwreck is in the "crusher Sativa" mold, delivering a nearly incapacitating package of mental effects that can be overwhelming to many patients.  It has shown benefits with nausea, migraines, and pain relief.

Grow Medium

Works great for SCROG — watch out at the end of flower, because true Trainwreck almost always gets hermaphrodite flowers appearing late in the cycle… often they're impotent, but it's wise to keep a close eye on them to avoid pollinating itself and other plants in your garden.

Northern California, Arcata to be specific

Clone-only, though Green House Seed Company has released feminized seed stock that is supposedly made via "reversed" pollen from the original "E-32? mother plant

Strain Type

Sativa-dominant hybrid

Flowering Time

Very short once proper conditions are achieved and it begins flowering — it's known for being a "time from germination" type of strain that won't show sex for quite a while… it's around 42 days to finish once it starts flowering fully.
