The THC content in Trainwreck is known to reach 25%, making this strain best for those familiar with cannabis. A cross between three landrace strains, this hybrid provides ample mental energy coupled with physical sedation.
The sativa effects of Trainwreck come on fast and strong, sort of like a trainwreck. It may sound a little scary until you realize that the train is filled with bliss, euphoria, and happy relaxation. A cross between Afghani, Thai, and Mexican landrace/heirloom strains, Trainwreck often features a THC content of 20% or above.
But, this strain wasn't named for its effects. Rather, legend has it that some California growers back in the 1970s had to uproot their crop after a nearby train wreck. The growers did not want their crop discovered, so they wiped the place clean.
Though Trainwreck is a hybrid, it's strongly sativa-dominant. It produces a strong cerebral experience that provides ample focus and mental clarity. Yet, that Afghani heritage provides plenty of indica couchlock. These sedative effects make Trainwreck an afternoon strain.
Medical consumers use this strain for a variety of ailments. Patients with ADD/ADHD, migraine, inflammatory conditions, muscle spasms, and PTSD have reported relief with Trainwreck. The spirited mental high from this hybrid may also be useful in those with depression and anxiety disorders.
