About this Hybrid Strain
When it comes to classic strains, few can touch the legendary status of AK-47. This sativa-dominant hybrid cannabis strain has been a staple of medical and recreational users alike for nearly three decades.
Its buds are usually dense and form cone shapes. AK-47 should sprout a lot of orange hairs to complement its light evergreen color. Flowers should exude heavy notes of fresh soil and flower petals, with a twinge of bitterness. It’s won several Cannabis Cup awards from growers the world over.
Use AK-47 for an array of debilitating conditions but be sure to try it for its cerebral effects. AK-47’s high is markedly uplifting and joyous, much like waking up from a Zen meditation. Cannabis connoisseurs seek out AK-47 for its ability to stimulate creativity. The body high is relatively subtle, but it can create a tingly feeling under the skin.
AK-47 is notorious for causing dry mouth, so be prepared. Red eyes, lightheadedness, and even paranoia can accompany higher doses.
This strain grows best indoors and has a short flowering time of 55-60 days.
Serious Seeds bred AK-47 from several mainstay landraces: South American, Thai, Afghani, and Mexican cultivars. The result is a plant that consistently churns out THC levels between 15-20% and CBD and CBN levels reaching as high as 1% each.
