Trainwreck Strain Genetics
While you might have assumed this famed hybrid acquired its name because of its impactful effects, the story behind this beautiful hybrid is the stuff of legend.
Indeed, this mix between Afghani indicas and a Mexican and Thai sativa was given its name back n the ’70s, due to a train crash somewhere in California, close to where this strain was being cultivater.
According to the legend, the growers didn’t want the emergency responders to discover their then illegal crops, so they decided to cut their losses and uproot the whole crop. The few plants that survived this ordeal eventually got the name “Trainwreck”, as an ode to their fallen brothers and sisters.
