A-10 Strain

Crossing different cannabis varieties is not new to the cannabis world.

In fact, this is how breeders conceptualize and eventually develop a new strain that has all the best qualities of the two or more different strains being crossed.

However, this practice does not mean that purebreds are anything less than impressive on their own.

Landrace strains, as they are more appropriately called, are cannabis varieties in their purest form.

Every cannabis variety we know today has roots that can be traced back to the different landrace strains of the world.

Hence, some breeders choose to simply bring out certain phenotypes of landrace varieties instead of breeding them with other types of strains to produce a whole new strain with a more complex profile.

One good example of such phenotype variety is the A-10 strain.

This pure Indica boasts of the most desirable traits of its lineage. Read on and find out more about this strain.

A-10 is believed to be a phenotype of the Afghani landrace. The information about it original breeder is a bit vague.

However, a popular theory involves one breeder in the name of Ed Rosenthal.

He is said to be the man behind the creation of the A-10 strain.

There is no definite information about A-10’s cultivation. Nonetheless, we can always refer to its Afghani lineage to determine the strain’s possible growing behavior.

On that note, here is some information about Afghani’s cultivation that prospective growers of A-10 should know.

Afghani is easy to grow both in an indoor or outdoor setting. However, outdoor cultivation requires a sunny or Mediterranean climate.

The strain can take as long as 45 to 55 days to flower indoors and once the nugs are ready for harvest, growers should end up with a rewarding amount yield of about 15 ounces per square meter.

For its outdoor cultivation, however, the buds are usually harvested around late September to early October with an overall yield of around 17 to 22 ounces per plant.

Flowering Time


As previously mentioned, prospective growers may need to refer to the growing behavior of Afghani itself to make educated assumptions about A-10’s cultivation.

Hence, the strain can have, more or less, the same indoor flowering period of about 45 to 55 days and a yield that can reach 15 ounces per square meter.


Since Afghani is typically harvested during late September to early October, there is a big chance that A-10’s nugs should also be harvested at around those months.

The same applies to the strain’s possible outdoor yield. Afghani is known to produce as much as 22 ounces per plant, so there is no reason why A-10 should produce any less than that.
