Purple Trainwreck is an indica-dominant strain hailing from Northern California that was created by the Humboldt Seed Organization. Its parent strain, Trainwreck is a high-powered three-way cross between Mexican and Thai Sativa’s, and an Afghani Indica Landrace strain. Its other parent is the soothing Indica, Mendocino Purps. The best of these parent strains genetics seemed to have been passed on, as Purple Trainwreck has shown to test up to 26% THC and has a beautiful violet color.
The buds of Purple Trainwreck cannabis are fluffy yet dense, with spiraled forest-green and lavender leaves. Long and wavy clumps of orange pistils are scattered throughout the buds. White-trichome hairs give the buds a fuzzy look and mask some of the deep purple color.
Purple Trainwreck has a pine and lavender aroma mixed with some fruity sweetness. Combusting this strain brings out rich flavors of sour grapefruit and tart berries.
