Origins, Genetics, History
Trainwreck is a mixture of 90 % Sativa (Thai and Mexican) and 10 % Indica (Afghan), reportedly created by two brothers in California in the 70s. Due to a train wreck near the crop, they had to pull it early to avoid detection and discovered the power of their hybrid creation.
The Sativa effects of euphoria and mood elevation dominate, yet there is also a strong relaxation from the Indica effects, with a good body buzz and couchlock (feeling glued to the couch from relaxation).
The thc level of this weed is very high, as much as 20%, approaching a kush level. This makes it a potent medical strain for many types of chronic pain and to reduce inflammation.
Appearance and Smell
Trainwreck grows fairly tall and is full of thin leaves and resin-packed buds. It has a very strong aroma with citrusy, pine, and lemon fragrances. The taste is like pine with a hint of a lemon after-taste. This makes it very suitable to fight nausea and stimulate appetite.

Trainwreck strain effects
Trainwreck is a very popular strain name to describe the mix of Sativa Thai and Mexican with Afghani Indica, and great for both recreational and medical uses. Recreational users value the very cerebral and euphoric high mixed with the strong relaxation and body high. It has a very strong balance of stimulating and relaxing properties. It is good to enhance creativity and elevate conversation.
Medical users who need a strong kick of pain-relief without too much stimulation will also value this strain of pot. Trainwreck varieties are good for mental issues as well. It is described as very uplifting and mood-brightening. It can also treat anxiety at the same time with its relaxing properties.
This strain is good to use for recreational purposes because it has moderately high thc content, and low but useful CBD content. The CBD effects take the edge off the stimulating Sativa properties as well as helping to reduce inflammation. Recreational users will enjoy the stimulation, mood boost, relaxation, and couchlock properties. It is good for social gatherings and for engaging in creative projects such as art and dance. Listening to music is more euphoric and meaningful. It can be useful as an aphrodisiac to increase stimulation and appreciation of romantic experiences.
This strain is good for various forms of intake and is often smoked. It can also be used in edibles such as candies or brownies due to the high yield of thc and other active cannabinoids.
