Cannabis culture has a long-standing love with Purple genetics. From the original Purple Haze made famous by Jimi Hendrix to the evolution of the modern day hybrid Purple varieties, these exotic and often visually appealing phenotypes leave many wanting more. Humboldt Seed's Purple Trainwreck provides the full spectrum of performance as our elite selection is backed by a high yield, resistance, heavy resin production and a dominating flavor profile finishing in just 8 short weeks.
Purple Trainwreck is comprised of our original elite Arcata, California Trainwreck cut combined with our 20+-year-old Mendocino Purple male. This notorious Purple phenotype first made a name for itself at the turn of 2000, as it became the most widely used and potent Purple variety, creating dozens of elite modern hybrids popular in today's marketplace. Rapid vegetative growth ensues from the very beginning, as very little time is needed to move into the flowering period. Thin fan leaves with long spaces between inter-nodal sites allow for deep light penetration. Trellising is always advised, as large sites in later stages could use the assistance of a double layer. An avid consumer of nitrogen with an overall high metabolism, Purple Trainwreck can definitely handle higher levels of nutrition. Flowering indoors, one can expect the Purple Trainwreck to finish in just eight short weeks. Large bubbly calyx formation with little fans making for rock-hard bud development all the way to the bottom of the stem. Deep purple hues evolve throughout the round as the last couple weeks result in a finish with high production value needing very little overall maintenance.
Piney citric, sweet berry and pepper
Flowering outdoors, harvest can be anticipated by the first week of October. Cages are highly recommended for a strong productive finish as the Purple Trainwreck can reach heights of up to 14 feet or almost 5 meters. Secondary support outside of the cage, such as netting, is highly recommended to secure terminal site areas. Yields range from 1-3 kilos depending on the lines of latitude, pot size, diet and climate. The flavor profile is an exquisite blend of both sharp piney citric overtones from the Trainwreck combined with the sweet berry and peppery expressions from the Mendocino Purple father. The effects from the Purple Trainwreck are very Indica-dominant. (70/30) Strong cerebral effects provide a long-lasting high with a relaxing body finish. When consumed in smaller amounts, Purple Trainwreck is great for daytime use. Topping out at over 19% THC, this is a much stronger version than your standard Purple strain. We are excited to have this active and available for the public now in feminized form as one of the most premier classic California exotic hybrids on the market today.
