A hybrid that leans towards the sativa end, but with its own indica properties, Trainwreck will have you maintain a clean mental high, while relaxing and putting the rest of your body at ease. It has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the best at stimulating a euphoric high, with a potent hit that can render any inexperienced smoker physically feeling slow or unable to move.
Another strain that didn’t get it’s name from its effects, but rather, from the circumstances it was created under, is Trainwreck. The myth-like story says that the name comes from the the California growers who had to uproot and move their crop in the 70’s, because there was a train wreck nearby and they feared being discovered.
Trainwreck was created out of Mexican and Thai sativa, that was cleverly crossed with an Afghani indica. The result is a sativa-dominant hybrid, with a potentially heavy indica couch-lock.
This makes Trainwreck an effective sedative, very compatible with slow down sundays and afternoons that are tasked to be simple relaxing. This strain has an above average THC level, recorded at an average of 20% or above, and is therefore also much-wanted and needed as a useful medical strain.
