Cross the legendary Trainwreck with the iconic Salmon Creek Big Bud and the result is an amazing feminised hybrid that has all the best qualities of each. Hailing from California, The Caboose is one of Strain Hunters’ finest. These mostly indica plants grow nice and compact, if not a bit branchy, and have short internodes.
The branches are loaded with quality buds when fully mature. The buds have an irregular shape with large, round calyxes and grow nice and dense (reminiscent of Big Bud). The leaves have an almost hypnotic allure with hues of purple and red. The sheer amount of product these plants produce make them an absolute dream for commercial growers. The quality is virtually incomparable for a feminised strain and the flavour and aroma only add to the appeal – fragrant flowers, oranges and asian spice with an earthy metallic endnote.
This is an excellent indoor and outdoor strain. It stands up well to the elements and is very adaptable to any indoor environment or grow method. It may be necessary to tie some of the branches as they tend to get weighted down with all that sweet bud! Speaking of the buds – you have never seen such frosty ones. They are completely covered with a snowy white coat of some awesome resin.
The plants finish after about 8 weeks. Indoor yield is up to 0.9 gram (dry and manicured) per watt per m2(with 1000W HPS). Outdoor yield can produce very large plants harvesting over 1Kg of dried, manicured buds.
The effect of Caboose is one that lives up to the name. It takes a while to ramp up but the back end packs a punch – trippy and upbeat then settling in to a long-lasting relaxed, fully couch-locked stone that seems to go on forever.
