Arcata Trainwreck is a hybrid marijuana strain. We’re still learning about the flavors and effects of Arcata Trainwreck – if you’ve smoked, dabbed, or consumed this strain before, tell us about it by leaving a review.
Like all Trainwreck strains, the Arcata Trainwreck’s high sets on fast and hard. However, the high doesn’t tend to hold for terribly long, usually a couple of hours at most. The length of its buzz may be a good or bad thing, depending on what the user is consuming it for. Because its effects tend to hit the brain rather than the body, it’s recommended for combatting depression, fatigue, or lack of concentration. For on-the-go consumers, it is reported that this strain may be perfect for quick but brief results.
Because it’s sativa-dominant, be wary of consuming too much too quickly. Anxiety and paranoia may accompany too-frequent tokes. It’s best to start out slow with this one until the smoker gets a better idea of how long it will last for them.
Growers should know this is a finicky strain (surprise, it’s a sativa). Flowering time can take anywhere from 7 to 10 weeks. It grows long, lanky stalks, so it’s a good candidate for Screen of Green setups. Mature plants will most likely need supports/posts to keep the stalks from slumping over.
About Arcata Trainwreck
Arcata Trainwreck, hailing from Northern California, is a Sativa dominant hybrid strain of mixed heritage – it has Mexican and Thai Sativas and Afghani Indicas in its lineage. It has a high THC content (approx. 21%) and a low CBD content (0.02-0.1%). It is best known for its potent and soaring sativa effects, and is named so because it hits hard like a train.
The plant of this cannabis strain grows tall, and is vine-like. There is a lot of internodal spacing, and the buds – which resemble a golf ball in size – are tight, hard and extremely sticky. It has so much trichome coverage that the plant looks almost gray. Resin production begins almost immediately in the flower and covers the whole plant in frost. The plant is also disease resistant, which makes it more favorable over others.
Arcata Trainwreck has a distinct smell. It gives off a sweet and dank lemon and spicy pine aroma, which is infused with a menthol scent. A fruity sweetness occasionally creeps through as well.
This strain has an equally distinct taste. The lemon lime of its smell is mixed with an earthy, piney flavor with a zest of menthol. A pungent, skunky and diesel undertone follows on consequent inhales.
Arcata Trainwreck takes some time to settle down and hit the user – the first hit is felt after roughly 5 minutes. Due to this gradual high, many first timers consume more than necessary, so do wait for the effect to hit you instead of rushing. It induces feelings of elation and happiness, and uplifts mood. It also boosts creativity and helps the user to relax.
This wonderful strain is recommended to those suffering from insomnia, stress and fatigue, and its mood lifting potential helps massively against depression as well. Arcata Trainwreck is particularly effective against pain, migraine and nausea.
First grown in the Humboldt County in California in the early 1980s, this cannabis strain is nowadays grown by Jaws Gear. It is suitable for both indoor and outdoor growth, and its creeping growing style makes it especially suitable for ScroG. Arcata Trainwreck has a flowering period of roughly 8-10 weeks. It harvests in early October and serves up a good yield.
