With a taste of dank pine needles and lemon iced tea, the effects of Trainwreck creep in like a thief in the night and hit you like a sledgehammer to the face. Having legendary origins, the strain Trainwreck is a wondrous marriage of some classic top-shelf California genetics. Originally bred in Northern California during the 1970s, Trainwreck is a sativa dominant hybrid blending Mexican and Thai sativas with an Afghani indica creating this all-star hybrid that is 40% indica to 60% sativa.
Although the parent strains of Trainwreck were already beloved staples in the Pacific Northwest, the Trainwreck strain we know today didn’t appear in grow circles until a series of chance events brought her into the world. As the story goes, one summer a train derailment occurred very close to the original Trainwreck grow/breeding site in Northern California. The worried farmers harvested everything early to avoid detection by emergency teams who were responding to the incident. Some of the plants were premature but one strain, in particular, the E-32 which later became known as Trainwreck stood out among the rest. Luckily the growers had saved cuttings of each plant before flowering and after testing all of the harvested plants, the E-32 was selected as the best in the crop and named Trainwreck because of the fluke train accident and also the intensely disorienting high that can make a novice smoker feel like they’ve been in an actual train wreck.
Characteristics of the Trainwreck strain
Trainwreck is a very potent strain with an average THC content of 15-24% and CBD ranging from .02-.1%. The high is fast-acting and truly mind-altering. Unexperienced smokers have reported feelings of nervousness, paranoia and dizziness after smoking but most experienced users love Trainwreck for her potent and stimulating, get-up-and-go high.
When finished flowering, the buds are popcorn shaped and have a lovely lime green color with bright orange hairs and are loaded with crystals. The smell is reminiscent of the famous Jack Herer strain with spicy and lemony notes. The smoke tastes piney and pungently earthy on the tongue and remains on the palate for a while after smoking. Once hailed as a great outdoor strain, Trainwreck can also be grown indoors with success. Flowering time for and indoor gardens is 8-10 weeks. Outdoors, Trainwreck finishes in late October to early November. She is a good producer with average yields around 18oz/m2 indoors, and 25oz+ per plant when grown outside. When growing in indoor gardens Trainwreck remains fairly short and not too branchy but outside it’s like a whole different plant and opens up in the full sunlight. Trainwreck is easy to grow if you are a first-time grower but, also a rewarding grow for more experienced gardeners. The plant is vigorous, resilient and a true joy to cultivate. For most of its history,
Trainwreck was only available in clone form but now this amazing strain can be started from seed and you can enjoy watching this beautiful plant produce its next-level buds.

Hi there I bought 3 different types of seeds from you. They all grew up to about 3 inches and died. I now only have 3 plants and they are Seeds from a friends plants. I grew all the same so not sure why the seed king seeds did not survive.
Order was processed promptly and seeds arrived in a secure package. I’m a novice and am still attempting to germinate 3 of the seeds. I have 2 plants in pots outside that are less than a foot tall but growing nicely. What I need is a sure fire method of germination. I’d buy again’
Started 6 weeks ago plants are approx 3 ft very bushy and starting to show signs of sex. All seeds were feminized so we should be good to hook ...
First up! Seed King Service. I ordered a couple months back when bug#19 was causing a great deal of problems for all of us. My seeds still arrived fairly quickly. Out of the 5 seeds ordered all planted directly in soil 4 came up and are doing very nice. Gave the seedlings 24 hr light for around a month. Now am making the transition to out doors.
Got drunk one night and left them to get extra watered.... Now that the sun is shining on them they are coming around very nicely. They smell awesome and as soon as the soil tightens up will transplant to bigger pots. No complaints. Not only that, what would I do with $500 worth of fine seeds? Let me make these work first!
I will order from Seed King again maybe chem dog? Who knows.
ps will send picks soon :)
looking good, cant wait for final product!
My experience with sea kings have been outstanding great selection of seeds I have always had good luck with them! Whenever one of my friends are looking for seeds I always recommend seed kings number one for cannabis seeds
Still a little bit early on them but looking good.
So far so good. The seeds I ordered shipped quickly, all germinated in two days, and so far producing great plants. I'm sure they will be just fine. I will and already have recommended people in the future.
The name train wreck is because this plant produces a lot of heavy large long buds . So heavy these long buds pull the stem there on down and lop over and hang. Some hitting the ground. These large heavy long bids resemble a train wreck.
That’s where the name came from and it sure is hell didn’t originate in N Cali. It originated from Mexico/Middle East hybridized in the mid west USA.
Several strains in the late 90’s were sent to Cali and that was one of them.
Anyways super high yields and heavy big long buds to be had. Some as big and long as a forearm of an adult.
Flowery notes and pine flavors yes. But the rest in the caption is BS;)
Highly recommended all 5 seeds germinated and has sprouted. Seed King is very easy to deal with with fast delivery and offer a quality product.
I tell my friends about the quality of service and product. Will buy from again.
