All aboard! The energetic sativa Trainwreck offers some serious stress relief, and a bit of Northern California mystery. Thought to be from Arcata, the strain has no clear origin or lineage. “It’s landrace sativas from Mexico and Colombia bred with Afghan,” some say. “It’s Mexican, Thai, and Afghan grown near an actual train wreck in the Humboldt hills,” say others. The mythos is rich. Bottom line: our nugs from Natural Herbal Pain Relief in San Jose were long, lime green, with orange hairs, dense and totally crystalline. A sweet lemon and hay smell made us think sativas, but the density and maximal trichome production had us thinking indica. This genetic pile-up was well-cured, well-manicured and it smoked to white ash—an indication of good flushing. The effect was immediate: mood-lifting, energizing and soothing. Trainwreck dissipates stress and anxiety, but may be overwhelming for new patients. Choo! Choo!
