Trainwreck is a very potent strain with an average THC content of 15-24% and CBD ranging from .02-.1%. The high is fast-acting and truly mind-altering. Unexperienced smokers have reported feelings of nervousness, paranoia and dizziness after smoking but most experienced users love Trainwreck for her potent and stimulating, get-up-and-go high.
With a taste of dank pine needles and lemon iced tea, the effects of Trainwreck creep in like a thief in the night and hit you like a sledgehammer to the face. Having legendary origins, the strain Trainwreck is a wondrous marriage of some classic top-shelf California genetics. Originally bred in Northern California during the 1970s, Trainwreck is a sativa dominant hybrid blending Mexican and Thai sativas with an Afghani indica creating this all-star hybrid that is 40% indica to 60% sativa.
Although the parent strains of Trainwreck were already beloved staples in the Pacific Northwest, the Trainwreck strain we know today didn’t appear in grow circles until a series of chance events brought her into the world. As the story goes, one summer a train derailment occurred very close to the original Trainwreck grow/breeding site in Northern California. The worried farmers harvested everything early to avoid detection by emergency teams who were responding to the incident. Some of the plants were premature but one strain, in particular, the E-32 which later became known as Trainwreck stood out among the rest. Luckily the growers had saved cuttings of each plant before flowering and after testing all of the harvested plants, the E-32 was selected as the best in the crop and named Trainwreck because of the fluke train accident and also the intensely disorienting high that can make a novice smoker feel like they’ve been in an actual train wreck.
Characteristics of the Trainwreck strain

Once hailed as a great outdoor strain, Trainwreck can also be grown indoors with success. Flowering time for and indoor gardens is 8-10 weeks.

As a first-time user, you should take small doses of Trainwreck until your body becomes tolerant.
