What is Trainwreck?
Trainwreck certainly has mysterious origins, most particularly with the meaning behind the name. According to legend, the strain got its name because the original cut grew on a hill around the same time there was a train crash in the Humboldt region. Other stories say the strained was named for the rapid ascent and descent of effects, which hit the mind like a runaway train. The Sativa-leaning strain is a cross between Mexican, Thai, and Afghani landraces. While it generates mostly Sativa-dominant effects, patients can expect a mellowing body buzz in addition to a cerebral high that administers imaginative and creative thoughts.
Appearance, Aroma, Flavor
Trainwreck buds really don’t have any characteristics that make them stand out from other strains. They are usually green with yellows and browns mixed in. The buds, however, are beautifully saturated with frosty THC crystals. It has a pine and citrusy aroma that cannot be mistaken. Similar to the smell, Trainwreck has a sweet, yet spicy taste with hints of lemon, mint, pine, and earth.
With a considerably high amount of THC content, Trainwreck can produce some compelling effects, especially as the dosage is increased. The strain begins its rapid plunge through the mind with an outpouring of euphoria, creativity, and happiness. A subtle body buzz clears away physical discomfort and distress to give you the motivation and willpower to chug through your agenda for the day. But as the effects start to dwindle, you may feel like you are losing steam and that your journey for the day is coming to an end. The later effects of Trainwreck will cause your body to slow down and engage euphoric bliss, helping you relax and unwind.
Top Medical Uses
Trainwreck’s high-THC content is great for mowing down ailments such as migraines, pain, and arthritis. Many patients also use this strain to get relief from stress, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, and PTSD. The strain serves as a relaxant and can induce a mellow and relaxing sensation over the whole body, which many prescription medications fail to do for individuals who are experiencing pain and stress in their joints, muscles, tendons, bones, and more. It also works well against distresses like difficulty sleeping or lack of appetite.
