Trainwreck Cannabis Sativa Strain


Dr. Greenthumb


Origins: Northern California
Harvest: October

Trainwreck is a one of a kind pure sativa strain that is a favorite among both medical marijuana users and recreational smokers. The characteristic that stands out the most when describing Trainwreck is its unmistakably pungent smell. Trainwreck’s smell and taste are so unique, that you will easily recognize it in any wreck hybrids you may come across.

This is an original strain that has a hazy history with a couple of different stories of origin floating around. It is believed that the original Trainwreck plant first appeared somewhere in Northern California, possibly Arcata, or Humbuldt County. This is no surprise, as this area has become one of the best bud producing locales in the world.

Trainwreck is very popular among recreational smokers because it is very tasty, and being a sativa, offers a clear-headed, euphoric high. On the other hand, this particular strain is also admired in the medical marijuana community for its ability to relieve muscle tension. It is perfect after exercising or playing sports, when you muscles cool down and start to stiffen up.

Some tips for growing Trainwreck include expecting flowering around 8 weeks indoor, or around early October outdoors, and bud production of up to 70 grams per plant.

    Trainwreck is 80% Thai Sativa, 10% Mexican Sativa and 10% Afghan Indica. Now you have the facts. Technically it is a Hybrid but also correctly described or referred to as “Sativa dominant”. The Afghan was added, so that the plant would grow in cooler climates, compared to those in Thailand, which are not only warmer but more Tropical than Arcata or Humbolt County in California. Trainwreck is an outstanding choice for those who love an outstanding tasting Cannabis. It is very high in resin and produces some of the very best soft hashish and oil there is. Grown outdoors, it will flourish, even grown as far north as Eastern Washington, where some truly awesome, prize winning Trainwreck has grown for years… It has one of the sweetest bouquet fragrances of all Cannabis strains and folks crave it in the air. When very lightly agitated, it gives off an awesome combination of strong citrus and pine fragrance that literally makes you want to wear it and I’m sure it would make an outstanding cologne or perfume. A far as I’m concerned and I am an authority on the matter, True Trainwreck is the very best tasting Cannabis to come so far and it’s been around since the early 70s. There you go folks, “The Straight Skinny”…..

    Trainwreck has been a solid contender thru kryptonite, blueberry, bubblegum, also northern lights and Cali 0, and then the (BCs St. Name) was judged by the similar look from a far unfortunately majority if that came wet fermentation then eventually that hay Smell so if u don’t remember choking and a7 up and pinetree with a hint of skunks ass when afgoo and the grape purps came around was when that unfortunately took a uninvited vacation….. All time favorite and I like GETN baked

    Who ever wrote this sounds like a noob… 70 grams a plant? What a joke.

      Why? I’ve seen 3 plants produce 11 oz before. They were cramped in the tent by the end and if they had more space the yield would have been even more… Just increase veg time. Or SRCROG?

    Trainwreck was first developed by Eric Heimstadt in Arcata CA. It is a wonderful strain that eases my body pains and head aches from Multiple Sclerosis, chills the PTSD, gives me energy and focus for the Chronic Fatigue. I miss Eric and I really miss this strain. I am in Chico CA and it seems to be erased from this area.

    Is Trainwreck really pure sativa? I dont think so(I know its not)
    High is from sativa but its grow like an indica. It have Afghani
    in its genes,I think. BUT very good strain.

    • L. Anderson

      I agree with you, I was a little confused when I read that as well. I don’t think it’s pure sativa either. One thing it finishes a little too soon to be pure IMO. I have some purple wreck in my garden and it done about 8-9 weeks. However, it is my favorite hands down. Although my are small (closet grow, CFL’s), it IS killer weed. Ummm! Anywho, happy growing!
