Trainwreck is a well-known sativa-dominant strain cultivated in Northern California. It has strong and potent Sativa effects that made it popular all over the world. While the history of this plant isn’t too clear and it’s speculated that it’s been brought to the US to try and mimic the Thai Stick, later on, it was crossbred with a Mexican Sativa and Afghani stock which brought us the Trainwreck strain we know today. We know that the cultivar was made much better and perfected in Humboldt County in California, where it was also popularized. A legend around the name Trainwreck is circling around that says it got its name because of a train wreck that happened near the field where it was grown and the growers had to move their crops because of it.

Stuff will put you on the couch. I trained the crap out of them. They took well to this and bushed out nice. Great yield, bad year for tons of rain. Lost a couple to rot, but I got the best crop compared to other growers in mass. Have to shake off extra moisture every day almost. I have severe chronic pain and this stuff is great, also major severe chronic depressed disorder. it's ok for that, but don't give up the meds. Bad move on my part. Recommend highly.
