According to popular belief, Trainwreck was created by two brothers in Northern California during the late 1970s. Some claim a trainwreck occurred near where it was first bred and cultivated, forcing the growers to get rid of their crops quickly. It is thought this is where the name Trainwreck originated.
Its origins are a mixture of landrace cannabis strains like Thai and Mexican sativas and Afghani indicas. It is an old strain, reaching back to the 1970s, and has an aura of mystery.
However, experienced cannabis users report needing a few hits to feel the full effects of this sativa-dominant hybrid strain when heating and inhaling.
This strain is known for its earthy, floral, and pine flavor and moderate THC levels of around 18%. Many also claim it has a spicy taste, a bit like pepper.
Because this strain has brain-stimulating effects, it can produce heightened feelings of paranoia among users. Be sure to consume Trainwreck around trusted friends who can help if the effects are overpowering.
