60% Sativa / 40% Indica
Genetics: Trainwreck x Mazar I Sharif
Flowering: 55-60 days
Height: 54-60 inches
Yield: 250-350g per square meter
This hybrid is a result of crossing two very well known strains that hold a special place in the medical cannabis community – Mazar I Sharif and Arcata e-32 Trainwreck. Mixing the genetics from these two strains, A-Train has inherited a pretty even mix of indica and sativa traits from it’s parents. Adding the Afghani indica genetics of Mazar I sharif to Arcata Trainwreck produced a plant that is more dense and not quite as tall as it’s California mother, although it still tends to grow wildly and requires a bit of support.
When growing A-Train, keep in mind that this strain can start flowering when it’s one foot tall, but will shoot up dramatically and finish around 4.5 to 5 feet. It is a moderate yielder, and on average, you can expect to harvest 300-350 grams of round, compact buds per square meter.The MiS helped girth it and overall she stayed pretty true to her low-leaf count, which really helps with manicuring. The smell is very clean and not too spicy; more of a light menthol with a dry afghan-based undertone that slowly overtakes any room.
Aside from this strain’s tendency to branch out and lean in all directions, especially as the flowers start to develop and get heavier, growers have reported that A-Train prefers lower humidity environments. While it grows well in all mediums, the yields tend to be higher in hydroponic systems, and the taste comes out more when grown in soil.
When smoked, it has a slightly lemony flavor with unmistakable undertones of Trainwreck, although a bit subdued by the hashy indica taste of the Afghani genetics. This strain smokes smooth like a sativa, but has a kick of an indica – a perfect hybrid!
One of the most pronounced effects of smoking A-Train is the munchies, which makes it a good choice for medical cannabis users that need help stimulating their appetite. Being a well balanced hybrid, A-Train is a perfect choice for users seeking the medicating effects of indica softened by the sativa side.
