Indica dominant Purple Trainwreck is a cross between Mendo Purps and Trainwreck. This strain combines great taste with outstanding medical effects and is reasonably easy to grow as well.
The top notes of Purple Trainwreck are lemon, lavender and pine and they’re supported by a spicey body for a weed which really gets your mouth watering and your nostrils twitching.
The effect has also won a lot of praise. Although the THC content is medium, it is enough to give you the immediate benefit of pain relief and to lighten your mood without going into a euphoric high, which is too much for some people. Then the classic Indica effect begins and users begin to feel themselves sinking gently into that wonderful, full-body stone. This is a great strain for treating insomnia particularly if it is caused by either emotional issues or physical pain. Basically this variety is strong enough to provide pain relief all night long so medical users can actually get a full night of quality sleep rather than being woken by their pain. Because of this, this is generally best kept as a night-time strain, but it can be used in the daytime as long as you’re able to go easy on yourself, for example you’re a passenger on a long car trip.
Overall, Purple Trainwreck is very easy to grow, however even though it is an Indica dominant, the element of Sativa genetics can certainly push it towards the upper end of what you would expect from a fairly balanced hybrid, which means that indoor growers are going to want to ensure that they have plenty of space even if they’re happy about getting to grips with plant training. Outdoor growers should note that Purple Trainwreck needs plenty of warmth and sunshine, so is best kept for Mediterranean climates.
One of the big advantages of Purple Trainwreck is that it is known for its strong root structure, which helps to make it very robust. It is also appreciated for its resilience to mould and pests. This is partly because the leaf structure allows for good airflow. Yields are in the region of 400-600 g/m2.
