  Origins, Genetics, History

Purple Trainwreck Type: Purple Trainwreck is a balanced, 50 / 50, Indica / Sativa hybrid of the following strains:

  • Trainwreck
  • Mendocino Purps

Purple Trainwreck was created to combine the talents of the parent plants by Humboldt Seed Organization breeders. They wanted the sweet, purple anthocyanins that along with the terpenoid pinene bequeath a berry and grape fruitiness with a hint of pine. They also wanted the hard-hitting, lay you flat power of Trainwreck. So, they crossed these two and created a new strain which has quickly gained a fan base.

Appearance and Smell

The Purple Trainwreck is over 80 inches tall, stretching upward to get to that sun or lamp light. The beds and leaves of the Purple Trainwreck plant are tinged with purple. These are the anthocyanins, the same healthy stuff that makes wine red. These have the effect of relaxing blood vessels. You can see the rest of the leaf is a solid green color. The blurry fuzz is the precious trichomes which bequeath a bounty of THC. You can see the fan leaves are a light green while the leaves close to the bud have more chlorophyll and are therefore greener.

The aroma of the Purple Trainwreck plant is a delicious grape, lemon, tropical mix. It is pungent and enjoyable. The spicy aroma will bust right through the bag so carry discretely and store in mason jars or in a Cannador with CValults.

Medicinal Marijuana Review / Focus on Multiple Sclerosis

Purple Trainwreck is a 50 / 50 Indica / Sativa with up to 25 % THC. This makes it great for pain. It can be useful for mood disorders as well but due to its potency, it can induce panic in individuals with anxiety disorders so it’s more suitable for depression and for pain treatment. In Multiple Sclerosis, sufferers can experience various forms of pain as a result of the illness.

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease in which the myelin which insulates nerve cells disappear or become damaged. These are just like the insulation to electrical wires and help the signals get to the right place and prevents the signal from being lost. When this insulation is damaged, signals traveling through the nerves can be lost or malfunction. This leads to disruption in both electrical and chemical signals. The effect is numerous malfunctions including sudden blindness, pins and needle sensations, other odd sensations, and chronic pain. One sufferer described his feet feeling as if constantly on fire. Muscle pain and weakness can also result. The cause is commonly thought to be autoimmunity. There are two types. One is relapsing, where symptoms come in during attacks only, then may go away or decrease, and progressive in which symptoms progressively get worse with age.

Years before the current marijuana enlightenment in the United States, anecdotal reports began being heard of sufferers who had successfully used marijuana to augment their Multiple Sclerosis treatment. A typical treatment can include high dose corticosteroids and cytotoxic medications which function as immunosuppressants. These medications can have side effects such as weight gain, high blood pressure, endocrine dysfunction, and infections which result from immune suppression. Therefore, patients are often looking for ways to lower their medication or augment it. Once the anecdotal reports came in, researchers were eager to study the effects of marijuana in Multiple Sclerosis but had to wait for the law to catch up with the times. Now, that time has come. Clinical trials of medications containing cannabis have been shown to reduce pain and uncomfortable sensations in Multiple Sclerosis. In the trials, the dosage was carefully controlled, so that is something to keep in mind when using medical marijuana, especially the powerful Purple Trainwreck strain. An overdose can cause panic and anxiety. Overdose is not known to be fatal, so this is a medication which is much safer than typical opioids often used to treat pain.

Purple Trainwreck is both stimulating to the mind and sedating to the body. This is the perfect combination for recreational users. This is a powerful weed with a heavy dose of THC; however, the Sativa effects can keep you stimulated for a good bit of the time. As your high winds down, relaxation and couchlock may predominate.

This can be a good weed to work on creative projects such as art and music, for seasoned users. If you smoke with friends, you want to smoke with people who have a tolerance. It will be a knockout punch to those without tolerance. You will have some stimulating conversation and the tendency to giggle and have a good time. The munchies can definitely set in, so have some nutritious fruit dishes and healthy, lean foods ready.

Purple Trainwreck can definitely help you get to sleep if you imbibe during the late hours, turn the lights down low and fill your belly. At this point, the soporific effects will start to overcome you. If your thoughts tend to race at night and keep you up, you will find yourself slipping into a welcome forgetfulness that will allow you to fall obliviously and effortlessly into sleep.

Purple Trainwreck Marijuana Strain
Average rating:

The buds that I just got from a dispensary on my way home look kind of bushy but they are enough dense on the inside (if they were trimmed right of course). They give off a rather strong sweet and citrusy smell with lavender hints and floral spicy aftertaste on the exhale. The flavor is sweet too but it feels a little harsh on the back of your mouth which made me cough for a minute. It’s purple tasting in some respects. By purple I mean sour grapes. Even grape liquid medicine, to be exact. The high is just the job, the effects are just what I needed. It fills you with energy at once but at the same time relaxes your every limb, reduces muscle tension and alleviates pain. The body buzz feels really good too, especially combined with the happy cerebral effects.

This strain gives you an outstandingly enjoyable ride that helps most with any kind of pain. I’ve been struggling from Fibromyalgia pain for a long time and what I don't like about most weed is that besides alleviating pain it also gives you headiness, which is not really what you need when living through your day and trying to be productive. I'm not sure if it's the absence of pain or the effects themselves, but something also makes me unusually happy and relaxed. The smell is rather pungent with a profound diesel scent that fills the room up right away. I needed only few twists of the wrist to break apart the grind, as it was very smooth. My throat liked it a lot as well cause it wasn't harsh or anything, but I could feel how potent it is. Strangely, it appeared to be a creeper. It needed almost half an hour after the first hit to finally kick in. But after that... oh man, my friend suggested coming outta house and gazing at an amazing night sky. Man, this moment was so perfect and so full of interesting and deep thoughts… Not anxious or paranoid though, only bright and optimistic things floating on my mind...
