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 quickly get rid of their crop. It is thought this is where the name Trainwreck originated.
Its origins are considered to be a mixture of landrace cannabis strains like Thai and Mexican sativas, and Afghani indicas. It is an old strain, reaching back into the 1970s, and has an aura of mystery around it.
However, experienced cannabis users report needing a few hits to feel the full effects of this sativa-dominant hybrid when heating and inhaling.
This strain is known for its earthy, florally, piney 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 become overpowering.
