The strain received its popularity back in the 1980’s when people first met the combination of two world’s greatest landraces—Thai and Afghani. There are a lot of legends surrounding the genetics, origin, and the name of Trainwreck, and usually it depends on who you ask about it and where you look for this strain. Some people claim that the strain originated in Humboldt county in the late 60’s. However, some say that it was an attempt to replicate the phenomenon known as “Thai stick,” which many American soldiers encountered during the Vietnam War.
Name of the strain
From many resources, we have found out that the name for the strain was chosen as a reference to the typical hard-hitting sativa effect, which usually “hits like a train wreck.” However, other sources claim that there was a real-life train wreck near the place the strain was grown when the cultivators first harvested the plant. Other sources go further and tell the story in which the growers of the strain had to collect the yield very early to avoid the influx of emergency workers due to the nearby train wreck.

Visually, the strain has light green leaves, large orange hairs, and plentiful trichomes.
