First off, everyone should try TrainWreck at least once. This complex landrace cross of Mexican and Thai Sativas with Afghani Indica is one of the best “Swiss Army Strains” around, which has made it a huge favorite of Northern California cultivators.
With micro-doses, one gets a euphoric, yet very functional uplift that is great for creative work, and helping with social anxiety and stress. In higher doses, you get to meet the train, as the functional buzz leads way to a curiously uplifted couchlock and a complete lack of focus, sometimes leaving you mid-sentence wondering what you were….. However, legend has it that this strain was not named for the effect at all, but was instead named as such because a train derailment of a freight train outside of Arcata that forced a nearby grow to harvest early to avoid detection from the maintenance crews.
The bud structure of this cut is moderately dense, and redolent of freshly cut Christmas trees with an undertone of lemons. This smell comes through in the taste of the exhale and fills the room with it’s crisp and decadent aroma. The effect is wonderful for pain, migraines, ADD, nausea and cramps. Some claim it is good for insomnia, however the racing mind influenced by the sativa edge of the strain can keep some people up.
Once you fall in love with TrainWreck, you’ll want to look for some of her derivative strains. Allen Wrench brings the east coast ruckus by combining NYC Diesel with TrainWreck, while Mendo Breath combines the TrainWreck derivative Crystal Locomotive (TrainWreck X White Widow) with OG Kush Breath.
