With its name referring to a subway line in Manhatten, the A-Train strain is a cross between the Mazar strain from Afghanistan and a version of Trainwreck, which was first created in northern California in the 1960s. This strain is a well-balanced combination of Sativa and Indica types. Mazar came second in the Indica section of the 1999 High Times Cannabis Cup. A-Train itself was chosen by renowned cannabis reporter Danny Danko as one of the Top 10 strains of 2009.
A-Train weed has a smell that’s heavy with hash and skunk and a complex flavor which includes notes of sweet fruit, Eastern spices, lemon and mint. After a couple of tokes of A-train you’ll experience a leisurely, relaxing high with a hint of euphoria. It’s a good weed for socialising, or for country walks. Medically, A-Train can help with stress and poor appetite.
A-Train seeds produce quite bushy plants that grow to between 120 and 140 centimetres tall. The plants have a high leaf to bud ratio and the buds are roundish and quite dense. THC levels are in the 14 to 18 percent range.
Indoors, grow these plants in soil for the best flavor or in hydro for improved yields. The plants may well need support as the heavy buds weigh down the side stems when harvest approaches. Flowering time is seven to nine weeks and yields are around 300 to 350 grams per square metre.
Outdoors, A-Train needs a warm climate equivalent to the Mediterranean and harvest comes in mid-October in the northern hemisphere.
The A-Train strain is not the heaviest producer among the modern cannabis strains but it does provide harvests of high-quality weed that combine the best traits of Sativas and Indicas.
