A-Train is a true hybrid produced by TH Seeds with dense green buds that taste of menthol with just a hint of citrus. It’s high is typical of what most people would consider a classic stoner high – euphoric and giggly.
A-Train also hits hard leaving you feeling famished but not too lazy to go for the food in your refrigerator. The couch-lock effects of this strain can be nearly overwhelming and cause some users to feel very sleepy. It is a feel good high that still leaves one feeling happy even after the high fades. Some users have reported an increase in libido while using A-Train. The downsides to A-Train are all fairly common – dry eyes and mouth with occasional bouts of paranoia and anxiety for some users.
With the onset of munchies being one of the first effects that people feel rather strongly, this strain is often used by those suffering from anorexia and nausea. Following closely are those that use it for insomnia, opting to let the sleepy buzz overtake them for a restful night. The strain does well with chronic minor aches and pains but those in a lot of pain will likely pass over this strain. Due to the happy high of this strain it is also used by some to help regulate their anxiety and mood disorders, such as depression. The strain is most often used for evening and night time medicating.
A-Train is half Sativa and half Indica, it is a mix of Arcata Trainwreck and Mazar-i-Sharif Afghan. The strain was started in Holland and was bred with the intention of growing indoors. Despite this there are those who have successfully grown A-Train outdoors. When grown indoors the choice between hydroponics and soil truly matters. Plants grown in hydro will have higher yields but those grown in soil reportedly taste much better. In hydro the plants can produce yields between 300 and 400 grams per square meter, while in soil they produce between 200-300. A-Train plants grow tall, between 120 and 140 centimeters, and grow wide as well. For this reason they are best raised as multiple branching plants. The strain flowers anywhere between 53 to 60 days. TH Seeds recommends that if growing this strain with hydroponics you use Botanicare Pure Blend Pro along with Liquid Karma to help ensure that plants get all the enzymes they need. During the peak of the flowering time they recommend that you add Bud Swell for the best yield.
