TGA Subcool is among the most well-regarded artisan breeders in the cannabis industry. In collaboration with Heroes of the Farm, The Weed Nerd took the company’s best and rarest Blue City Diesel, a strain with an expansive high, to create a hybrid that would catch the world’s attention. And among the hundreds and thousands of products available, what better choice is there than TGA’s very own Timewreck? The fruit-flavored Sativa-dominant strain is famous among its peers. Not only as an award-winner, but for its potent therapeutic value.
From this fated cross is Locomotion, a strain that takes users from one place to the other within a matter of seconds. Like its parents, it delivers a dreamy cerebral high that uplifts the spirts and enhances the mood. However, the Indica genetics of the hybrid are stronger compared to its parents and manifest quite strongly in the effects it induces too. For example, it has the capacity for locking enthusiasts who overindulge in its potency to the couch.
With its 17% to 18% THC, Locomotion also provides patients with a reprieve against a wide variety of illnesses. This is precisely why it remains of value to users from the medical marijuana community.
