Caboose originated in California where it was produced by crossing the original (Arcata) Trainwreck with Salmon Creek Big Bud. Following several years of experimentation the guys at Strain Hunters were finally able to successfully reverse it, self-pollinate and finally produce feminised seeds from it.
Caboose grows into a bushy, compact plant with short inter-nodal spacing and big, wide branches. The buds themselves more closely resemble those of Big Bud rather than Trainwreck being large and dense with big, round calyxes that show red and purple colourations. This indoor/outdoor strain is a good commercial choice that combines good yields with high quality in any growing medium. Yields are around 900 gr/m2 indoors after 8 weeks' flowering while outdoor growers can harvest up to 1 kilo per plant of dried buds .
Resin covering the buds has a white appearance making it very attractive commercially too. Buds have a Kush scent backed up by a sweet floral note together with a salty, metallic edge. When burnt it exudes chemical, mineral and floral aromas. Caboose hits hard and fast with an intense and trippy phase before becoming rather couch-lock in effect. Great for just chilling out or a while before sleep for those needing help to get a good night's rest.
Medicinally, therefore, useful to combat insomnia and depression.

About Strain Hunters
During their expeditions to the far reaches of the globe, the Strain Hunters; Arjan, Franco and Simon collated an extensive library of the most exotic, unusual genetics imaginable. From these genetics, Strain Hunters now have a collection of premium feminised Autoflower, Hybrids, Landraces and Regular cannabis seeds.
The Strain Hunters brand started as a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet. They deemed the worldwide persecution of cannabis to be uncalled for and so searched the globe for the last remaining ‘real’ landraces that were left in remote corners of the world.
These strains, isolated for decades and sometimes for centuries, constantly inbreeding, are at the origin of all the thousands of variations that we know today in the cannabis industry. In these landraces there are hundreds, maybe thousands of unique cannabinoid profiles that have never been evaluated by the pharmaceutical industry; nevertheless they could be of enormous help in the future, when the knowledge about the medicinal properties of the cannabis plant will advance further. One of these cannabinoid profiles could be hiding the next miracle drug for the treatment of very serious diseases. The concept of Strain Hunters stems from the need to preserve nature’s gifts to man, in a quest for a better future.
Now, the Strain Hunters sell their fantastic strains, both ones they have sourced from remote locations and their very own strains created at their headquarters, in conjunction with the Greenhouse Seed Company and the results have been tremendous.
With a relatively small library of strains, Strain Hunters have released only the very best strains that they have created onto the market. All of which are available to buy at Seedsman.
