Purple Trainwreck is an indica-dominant hybrid strain that was produced by crossing a Mendocino Purps with Trainwreck. It is robust, vigorous and puts on a colourful display during flowering.
Purple Trainwreck grows indoors and in warm, dry, temperate and Mediterranean climates. If grown indoors it should be noted that because of the amount that this strain stretches the vegetative period should be kept short. In addition it is very nutrient-hungry and will need to be well-fed. Its structure is that of the familiar Christmas tree shape but with a slightly open structure which allows light penetration to the internal buds thus ensuring good development for an abundant harvest. When temperatures drop significantly at night this plant will display lovely violet and purple colourations.
Indoors yields will be in the range 350 - 500 gr/m2 within a flowering period of 58 - 63 days. Outdoor-grown plants will attain a height of between 1 - 3 meters yielding between 1.2 and 2.4 kg. per plant for an early October harvest in the northern hemisphere. Purple Trainwreck's THC production is high at 15% - 17% with very low CBD at 0.1%. Aromas of citrus and hot spices are completed by flavours of lemon, pine and lavender. The effect is quite special being devastatingly powerful with cerebral focus giving an energetic and invigorating high that is initially very psychedelic but which evolves into a long-lasting sensation of utter relaxation. Therapeutically it could prove to be of benefit.

About Humboldt Seed Organization
The Humboldt Seeds Organization is a collective of growers and breeders who are based in the Emerald Triangle. They help share California cannabis genetics with the rest of the world though operations based in Spain.
The Humboldt Seeds Organisation are focused on organic and environmentally sustainable cultivation. A community-based philosophy underpins the organization, meaning they attempt to buy locally, give back to the community, and engage in sustainable economic choices. In fact, their own website states that this very California ethical model is part of what they want to share with the world.
Strong hybrids thrive in Northern California, the original locale where indicas took root in America. Humboldt Seed Organization is the home of some West Coast darlings including Blue Dream, Trainwreck, and Chemdawg to name just a few. Humboldt Seed Organization’s Blue Dream is a beautiful example of the marriage between a creative sativa head-high, and the smooth body relaxation of an indica. This experience is the quintessential California smoke.
This established network of breeders and experts is driven not only by deep passion for the work, but also by a unique regional culture of marijuana breeding that stretches back forty years. Their focus on sustainable and ethical practices adds something interesting to their roster of distinctive strains.
The relationship between breeders and seed banks forms an important foundation within the cannabis world. Conscious creations of new strains, the maintenance of existing strain genetics, and the professional storage and distribution of a wide variety of seeds helps to maintain important genetic stock in case catastrophe strikes. Crop infections and infestation, natural disasters, widespread war or famine—all of these factors can result in a need for safe seed reserves. This is why it is so important that breeders create high quality genetic stock, and that seed banks are able to curate diverse collections of seeds, which is exactly what Humboldt Seeds Organization hope they have accomplished.
