AK47 got its name from the famous AK-47 assault rifle invented by the Russian military. The strain is a powerful cross of Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Afghanistan landraces that packs quite a punch and more than lives up to its namesake.
AK47 strain overview: The well known strain has won multiple awards since it was developed in the early 90’s in the Netherlands including The Cannabis Cup and High Times Cup. It is a potent cross of four of the best original landrace strains Colombian Sativa, Mexican Sativa, Thai Sativa and Afghanistan Indica, which all combine to create an incredible sativa dominant hybrid. Producing solid yields of up to 500 g/m2 and up to 22% THC, AK47 is not a strain to be scoffed at, ever since its creation the strain has sat comfortably as one of the top legendary strains around for the last 30 years.
Appearance: Although naturally tall due to its sativa dominance AK47 is quite a compact plant which grows to be around 140 – 180cm with good yields and THC levels of around 20%. Visually AK-47 is an appealing looking plant, growing solid nugs that are a bright lime green color, dusted with THC rich trichomes.
Growing AK47 strain: AK47 seeds are considered a relatively easy to grow although it is not without its challenges. Despite being sativa dominant the strain is not well suited to high humidity climates and can be prone to mold and mildew. For best results AK-47 should be grown in warm dry sunny climates where there is a good breeze or sufficient ventilation to keep bud rot at bay.
Overall AK47 has a reasonably short flowering period of between 8-10 weeks which is ideal for outdoor grows ending in October.
Taste and Smell: AK-47 is an incredibly strong smelling strain, so for those growing the strain outdoors be very careful to keep them away from any neighbours that might disapprove.
The strain produces a pleasant but very typical strong cannabis aroma, similar to that of skunk but with floral undertones.
Tastewise the AK47 strain attacks the taste buds with a strong hashy flavor that is followed by a sweet almost desert-like after taste with hints of citrus fruits.
Effect: Being a sativa dominant strain AK47 gives users a clear and uplifting high that is great users suffering with depression, stress and anxiety. Despite being high THC the high from AK47 is rarely overwhelming and actually helps the mind to focus.
AK-47 tends to give users a full mind and body buzz that leaves you feeling mellow yet focused and able to be productive. An ideal strain if you have a busy day of creative work ahead of you.
The sativa buzz can last for a few hours but as this wears off you will be left feeling relaxed and with a feeling of euphoria all over your body.
AK-47 thanks to its high THC content can be a great strain for anyone suffering from chronic pain, nausea or migraines. However those that suffer with paranoia should take it slow when using any high THC strain.
