Trainwreck – A Humboldt Legend

Trainwreck – A Humboldt Legend




Trainwreck, e-32 Trainwreck, Arcata Trainwreck, Humboldt Trainwreck

“1 – The original Trainwreck was supposedly 1st grown in Arcada (sic) , Calif. in the ’60’s. Story has it that there was a train wreck that summer which more or less memorialized what turned out to be a very potent and popular smoke. Sativa dominant.”

“Beserker is the guy who discovered/bred Trainwreck. Steve Tuck is the guy that crossed it with an Afghani to produce a seed-line/woodhorse/meduser Trainwreck.”

“The arcada (sic) cut of train wreck gets it name because it was grown, for the first time, on a hillside, that just so happened to have a train wreck happen in the same area that summer”

“Train Wreck is an old hybrid (1970’s) from Humbodlt of lowland Thai, Mexican Sativa, and a very solid and potent Afghani.”

“TW is basically a Thai low land sativa that got into the mix up here back in the early 80’s. Out doors it’s a huge “weeper creeper” that takes up TONS of space and takes 9 months to come in. It’s original parents were brought back from Thailand by some vagabond-os wanting to reproduce Thai-stick phenotype.”

much more:

E-32…tha NEW TrainWreck!

“To get down to where it came from here’s the real scoop. No its not
some old mountain man story about a far off plot in the hills next to
a train track, but that sounds good and all.

The old proprietor of the Humboldt Patient Resource Center or HPRC had a facility in which they were making medicine for the sick.

They were working with many seeds available from the banks (thai) and some old Humboldt strains(afghani/mex).

They started over a hundred of one certain cross (afg/mex x thai) and e-32 is the 32’nd seedling and the one “E” thought was the best. So its kinda named after the grower.

The Making of Breeder’s Choice Trainwreck:

“Trainwreck is from Humboldt, It was originally bred in a town called Honeydew…The arcata cut is the original cut, but it was not bred here in Arcata.

Yea, I wasn’t implying that it was from Arcata but that brings up an interesting point, why do peeps call it the Arcata cut if it was bred in South Hum/greater Garberville area? That never made sense to me. I guess it coincides with all the other silly factious terms/names that have been attached to this strain name (e.g. E32, etc.)…Or that people have no sense of geography/knowledge of the Northcoast and Arcata is the only town in Humboldt that they can think of…

This is because of its short flowering period, large crystal struture, and unique taste.

Disease resistance and its performance outdoors also make it good breeding stock. From what I understand, TW was partially derived from a old school strain that was more or less the staple of PNW outdoor for quite some time.”

I haven’t done any business with the following seedbanks, so this is FYI not an endorsement.

White Skunk


Shiva x Trainwreck

Flowering time 8-9 weeks

Growing time 3-8 weeks

Very high yields

Very high THC level

Low in height

Cash-crop Indica

100% female seeds


The White Skunk has a combination of high THC and CBD making the effects after smoking much like being in a rollercoaster for 30 minutes followed by a freefall landing on a giant cotton wool bed, leaving you happily sedated on your sofa.

This strain grows very resinous dense buds with a stereotypical dank skunky smell and beautiful white orange hair’s.

The Shiva heavily influenced her growth patterns making the White Skunk a short plant that focuses completely on producing flowers. This, with the wonderful taste and extreme potency of the Trainwreck, makes the White Skunk a guaranteed cash-crop success.

Cal Train Wreck- Sagarmatha Seeds

Sagarmatha has obtained the Californian version of the famous Train Wreck.

Cheez Wreck

The Champion “Cheese” and the terrific “Train Wreck” have been fused to form one the most fantastic hybrids of the 21st century. The aroma and attitudes of the parentage brings this plant to higher level of performance. Moments after the first inhalation, the consciousness of the smoker subsides slowly succumbing to the influence of the Wreck, only to rise up with the fantastic flavored smoke of the Cheese placing a smile on your face and a red twinkle in your sagging eyes. When your garden is limited to only 1 variety, be sure to get your Cheese Wreck boarding pass!

Trainwreck x Mango Haze

The Legendary Trainwreck clone meets the Mr Nice Mango Haze. Very similar to the Tw x SSH. Somewhat lanky, extremely resinous and trippy potent high. Will need support when flowering since she kept the thin flexible stems of the mom. Excellent for screening.

    I love all of the stories about TW. Funny enough, I have a story which I believe to be 100% true. Let me first say I do not know anything about E32 or Arcata Wreck or whatever else people crossed later. TW was developed in a neighborhood. The neighborhood is not in Honeydew or Arcata, it’s on state route 36. Most all the parcels grew the same genetics. A lot of the growers in this neighborhood were from San Diego. Not even hippy dudes, more like jocks and football players. They decided on a guerilla grow near a railroad track and river. In fact, they used the tracks to move supplies. After planting out their seedlings, they had extras. The extras were planted in a rail car that was on it’s side, full of river silt. The seedlings grew. After taking pictures, yes, photos of the original TW exist, they shared the herb with a friend. The friend did not know where it was grown and after smoking a joint, he said he felt like he was in a train wreck. They all got a kick out of that and later showed him the photos. The person who named it still lives in Humboldt. I was told he even holds the original genetics. I live on the parcel where all of this took place. I have the Dodge Power wagon that was used to move supplies to the TW grow site. Well, another story about TW. I believe this to be the true story about TW origins.
