Trainwreck is one of the fast-acting strains in the marijuana world and hits hard and heavy. It’s a high-THC sativa bred from Mexican and Thai Sativas with Afghani Indicas, giving it a sweet lemon flavor with spicy undertones. It originates in Northern California, where it was so highly regarded that it was nicknamed the “Humboldt Crackerjack.” Liters of resin can be extracted from a single plant, making it a profitable cash crop for growers.
Medically speaking, it is used to treat migraines, pain, and arthritis. Many patients also use Trainwreck for anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and PTSD. Its effect is euphoric, uplifting, and energetic. It can be used to combat depression. The sativa high creeps up on you, hitting you with a burst of happiness as your mind embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
You may expect adverse effects from Trainwreck like paranoia, anxiety, and headaches. You may also get “rush” just by smoking Trainwreck, which is typical for many strains. Its THC content is high, about 17%, so it’s a good choice for inexperienced patients.
It takes 9 to 10 weeks for flowering, and harvesting occurs in October in the northern hemisphere. Outdoor Trainwreck reaches up to 12 feet high and flowers within 8 to 9 weeks. It’s more resilient than many other strains and can withstand cold temperatures down to 20 degrees F.
To grow commercially, you’ll want to start the seedlings indoors 6 weeks before the last frost in spring. Put them under 1,000 watts per square foot of light so they can flower under a canopy.
