The Allen Wrench strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that stems from popular genetics. Despite this, Allen Wrench has not quite gained the same traction as a “patient favorite.” Of course, that is not to say that it’s not up to par overall.
Allen Wrench Strain: NYC Diesel X Trainwreck
I picked up this batch of the Allen Wrench strain on my recent trip to Apothecary Collective in Van Nuys, CA. I wasn’t sure what to expect upon hearing its name, but I soon learned that the genetic lineage stems from the NYC Diesel and Trainwreck strains.
“The genetic lineage stems from the NYC Diesel and Trainwreck strains.”
Knowing this, I expected the Allen Wrench strain to be quite the experience.
The Trainwreck strain has always had a special place in my heart, and the addition of NYC Diesel was sure to bring some flare of its own.
I’ve had the opportunity to review each of these strains separately over the years, and I’ve come to expect an uplifting Sativa experience with each one. So, I was excited to see how these two classics would mesh together in one package.
How Might The Allen Wrench Strain Affect Me?
This batch of the Allen Wrench strain had a incredibly similar bud structure to that of the Trainwreck stain. However, the color of the buds themselves seemed to be a shade or two darker than what I’ve come to expect.
“After just a few minutes of medicating with [Allen Wrench], I began to sense a relaxing buzzing sensation in my mind.”
As far as its aroma/taste is concerned, this batch of the Allen Wrench strain was more reminiscent of the NYC Diesel strain. Its terpene profile had a distinct gassy characteristic, although the lemony citrus flavor didn’t make itself known.
After just a few minutes of medicating with this strain, I began to sense a relaxing buzzing sensation in my mind – I found this quite useful in treating a migraine. My energy level began to climb very quickly also.
Overall, I would say that the Allen Wrench strain is a great option for stress and anxiety relief later in the day. It may also be beneficial for patients who suffer from PTSD, OCD, lupus-related pain, depression, and more.
