Purple Trainwreck Strain Origins

The experienced cannabis cultivators at Humboldt Seed Organization are responsible for creating the Purple Trainwreck strain, and we couldn’t be more grateful. They say this hybrid strain was the result of crossing Mendocino Purps with Trainwreck, which certainly explains the name. It also explains some of the effects, since both of the parent strains are heavy hitters in their own regard.

Trainwreck is known for producing mind-melting sativa effects that hit… well, like a train. It’s especially popular in Northern California and is predominantly descended from Mexican and Thai sativa strains crossed with a little bit of Afghani indica. Those who love Trainwreck say it often gives them bursts of creativity coupled with total euphoria and excellent feelings throughout their bodies.

Mendocino Purps, also known as Mendo Purps or just Purps, also comes from Northern California. It placed in the top 10 in the High Times Strain of the Year awards in 2007, and it’s easy to see why. Some people say the rich flavor reminds them of caramel coffee, and most customers say it brings them to a state of relaxed happiness.

Some say it makes them feel engaged in social settings, while others say it’s perfect for staying at home and pursuing creative endeavors around the house.
