Description

A legendary Northern California strain, Trainwreck is known for its potent and soaring Sativa effects package. It’s lemon-lime + menthol + acrid smell and taste is famous worldwide. The plant itself often looks gray due to the heavy trichome coverage and has a vine-like heavily Sativa structure with minimal leaf count and large calyxes.

Lineage

Unknown, likely (Lowland Thai x Mexican Sativa) x Afghani

Story

Trainwreck is thought to be a combination of a Lowland Thai variety that was brought back to the US in an attempt to mimic Thai Stick. Crossing that with a Mexican Sativa (brick weed) and Afghani stock produced this plant that finishes fairly quickly once flowering is triggered. The strain was perfected and popularized in Humboldt County, California, particularly Arcata, where the “E-32? (meaning type E, 32nd rotation) Trainwreck became the eventual popular “mother”.

Aroma

Citrus-menthol-pine is the dominant smell — it’s sharp with an occasional fruitiness creeping through

Flavor

Citrus-dominant, sometimes carrying an acrid, fuely component and the same mentholated quality from the smell

Qualities

Sometimes racy, but always very potent, Trainwreck is in the “crusher Sativa” mold, delivering a nearly incapacitating package of mental effects that can be overwhelming to many patients. It has shown benefits with nausea, migraines, and pain relief.

Grow Medium

Works great for SCROG — watch out at the end of flower, because true Trainwreck almost always gets hermaphrodite flowers appearing late in the cycle… often they’re impotent, but it’s wise to keep a close eye on them to avoid pollinating itself and other plants in your garden.

Allen Wrench: Strong, Cerebral Strain

The Allen Wrench strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that stems from popular genetics. Despite this, Allen Wrench has not quite gained the same traction as a “patient favorite.” Of course, that is not to say that it’s not up to par overall.

Allen Wrench Strain: NYC Diesel X Trainwreck

I picked up this batch of the Allen Wrench strain on my recent trip to Apothecary Collective in Van Nuys, CA. I wasn’t sure what to expect upon hearing its name, but I soon learned that the genetic lineage stems from the NYC Diesel and Trainwreck strains.

“The genetic lineage stems from the NYC Diesel and Trainwreck strains.”

Knowing this, I expected the Allen Wrench strain to be quite the experience.

The Trainwreck strain has always had a special place in my heart, and the addition of NYC Diesel was sure to bring some flare of its own.

I’ve had the opportunity to review each of these strains separately over the years, and I’ve come to expect an uplifting Sativa experience with each one. So, I was excited to see how these two classics would mesh together in one package.

How Might The Allen Wrench Strain Affect Me?

This batch of the Allen Wrench strain had a incredibly similar bud structure to that of the Trainwreck stain. However, the color of the buds themselves seemed to be a shade or two darker than what I’ve come to expect.

“After just a few minutes of medicating with [Allen Wrench], I began to sense a relaxing buzzing sensation in my mind.”

As far as its aroma/taste is concerned, this batch of the Allen Wrench strain was more reminiscent of the NYC Diesel strain. Its terpene profile had a distinct gassy characteristic, although the lemony citrus flavor didn’t make itself known.

After just a few minutes of medicating with this strain, I began to sense a relaxing buzzing sensation in my mind – I found this quite useful in treating a migraine. My energy level began to climb very quickly also.

Overall, I would say that the Allen Wrench strain is a great option for stress and anxiety relief later in the day. It may also be beneficial for patients who suffer from PTSD, OCD, lupus-related pain, depression, and more.
