The cannabis community is notorious for the way strains have been elaborately named for years. Many go through creative lengths to make products stand out, at least on the first impression. Others take a more direct route and simply combine the parents’ names, especially when it already catches attention by being established giants in the industry.
Such is the case with Afwreck, a gastronomic fusion between Afghani and Trainwreck. Already, it sets the bar high with its larger-than-life lineage. And, when drawn in, it leaves no time for doubt as an energizing buzz plows through the mind in a speed reminiscent of Trainwreck.
While it initially feels like one is about to get wrecked into cerebral oblivion with its psychedelic prowess, a heavy-limbed sensation from Afghani serves to counter it. This allows people to be relaxed yet maintain a sharp alertness. By complementing each other’s strengths, Afwreck turns out to be on a league of its own as it offers the best traits of its parents without losing its balance.

Odor and Flavors
A whiff of Afwreck’s musky scent is like wandering deep into a forest. With a mixed fragrance of damp soil and moss, the weed is almost like a breath of fresh air after a drizzle with a touch of sweetness that reminds one of the thick aroma of honey. Like its odor but with a few more assortments, the herb’s taste seems to share earthy flavors with a hint of diesel.
The lovechild of a powerful marriage, Afwreck does not fall short on what it promises: an active mind with a calm body. Expect to seize the day with zeal almost immediately after consuming a few puffs of its delicious smoke.
During the onset, there is a euphoric onslaught that instantaneously shifts the mind’s train of thought into a more positive route. It recharges the energy that users use to power through the day. Influenced by the herb’s uplifting head high, one’s personal sense of purpose, motivation, and ambitions are renewed so people can check off a list of errands without feeling burdened by tiredness.
It is best to prepare snacks ahead of time before taking a puff of the bud. After all, completing tasks and maintaining one’s focus is quite hunger-inducing. Having food nearby will save a trip to the kitchen as well as prevent users from breaking concentration.
Soon enough, the high leads individuals to tension-free lane where the body can settle in comfortably. As the soothing sensation makes its mark, it becomes more pronounced by the minute. Though the buzz is soothing to its core, it does not lock users to the couch. Instead, it allows one to pursue personal passion projects after unwinding from a busy schedule ahead.
While it is tempting to over-indulge in this all-around positive kicker, users must still use it with a grain of salt. In high doses, it can do more than just dry the eyes and mouth. It will induce a subtle feeling of paranoia while raising anxiety levels. The bud can also be quite dizzying.
While the last three are avoidable through pacing and moderation, there is no stopping the dry spell regardless of how much of Afwreck is consumed. Having refreshments like water, as well as staying hydrated throughout the day, will ease the discomfort.
Medical Use and Benefits
Immediately after consumption, Afwreck brightens up the mood. Its anxiolytic properties wash away any accumulated stress that develops into a mental burden when left unattended. In doing so, it provides users with a sense of clarity that improve one’s acuity toward the world. The free headspace is also filled with optimism.
With a newfound lucidity, long-sufferers of attention deficit disorders such ADD or ADHD find better attention to detail through seemingly sharper senses. The intact concentration, along with its euphoric effects, also silence depressive thoughts.
On the physical, the rush of energy keeps people steady throughout the day as it dispels the head-pounding symptoms of fatigue. At the same time, chronic conditions like backaches, headaches, migraines and muscle spasms are soothed by its powerful analgesic properties. Rather than dragging the body down in a state of drowsiness, it simply provides eminent relief.
Afwreck has the classic stature of Sativa-dominant hybrids. Its height towers up to 200 cm, so it may have to be topped early to keep it under control. Moreover, its lanky build and long calyxes call for some support through staking to keep from being toppled over by unpredictable factors like strong gusts of wind. Shearing it out will encourage lateral branching.
Indoors, the plant reacts well to an environment that mimics a Mediterranean climate. Applying the Screen of Green method, as well as bending the plant, will improve air and light circulation especially around the lower branches and nodes. The growing technique also shortens a significant amount off its vegetative phase. Harvest can happen in a flash, taking only 6 to 8 weeks of flowering time before producing 500 grams of buds per square meter.
Growing the plant in gardens or farms can pose a challenge as unpredictable levels of humidity will trigger the large buds to rot. As such, keeping it in an area where there is constant access to sunlight is a necessity. Growers can expect to harvest this by early October with an average yield of 500 grams of buds per plant.
