A-Dub strain is a renowned indica-dominant strain (80% indica, 20% sativa) known for its high potency and complex flavor. It earned second place in the High Times “Earth’s Strongest Strains” list in 2014. A-Dub has been described as having a chemical, diesel, peppery flavor and relaxing, euphoric effects. Patients have reported that this strain (cultivar) helps manage stress, anxiety, depression, and chronic pain.

A-Dub strain boasts impressive genetics as a cross between Alien Dawg and the highly popular Sour Double (a cross between Sour Diesel and Sour Bubble). California breeders created this delicious, well-balanced hybrid strain that offers a very high potency when carefully grown and cured, reaching as high as 32% THC.

The strain has deliciously sweet honey and tropical pineapple flavor, with earthy undertones to balance the sweetness.

growing strains

To maximize the high THC on offer from this strain, you must grow and cure A-Dub carefully. Indoor yield sits around 12 ounces per square meter, while outdoor yield is 14 ounces per plant. A-Dub thrives in a warm, Mediterranean-like environment but can grow well indoors and outdoors.

Drying your buds allows moisture to be released so you can smoke or vape your buds. It generally takes around seven to twelve days, though this can vary depending on the size of your bud. Conversely, curing involves storing your bud in a sealed container for around 14 days. Curing isn’t a step you want to skip, as it boosts the flavor and aroma of your bud: You’ll get a smoother, better-tasting smoke overall.

You’ll want to keep buds stored somewhere dry and dark while you’re curing and check on them frequently to ensure no signs of mold.


A-Dub is a short strain, around 30-50 inches (75-130 cm).

Humidity and Temperature

As with any strain, you want to start with a higher humidity during the growing phase. We recommend starting with 70%. As you reach the flowering stage, you can gradually lower humidity in 5% to 30%-40% increments. This process is essential to prevent the risk of your crop growing moldy.


Flowering time is average, with an eight-to-nine-week flowering cycle.
