AK-47 is a bit strange name for cannabis, but despite it, it is one of the most award-winning strains, which is prominent for its high THC levels. It is a Sativa-dominant hybrid strain 90/10, which emerged, thankfully to Serious Seeds in 1992. Though the basis of this cannabis strain takes roots in the 70s, when happens the first cross between Thai and Afghani. Afterwards in the 90s, Serious Seeds bred a glorified kush, which was a combination of Thai, Afghani, Mexican, and Colombian. Even after that, the story doesn’t end, as in 1999 previously-mentioned company implemented the last improvement that provided uniform seeds. And after that, the popularity of this cannabis only grew higher.

This weed contents an average THC level that ranges between 16%-20% and a CBD level of about 1%. Some rumors say that the name of this strain appeared due to this strain’s property to knock inexperienced users out. For sure, it’s not the exact description, but it is not the wisest choice for novices. Because of its effects, this strain is pretty suitable for daytime consumption, as well as for the nighttime.

The bud meets with a mellow but distinct odor of sweet, earthy, and flowery tones with a sourness hint. When smoking, it leaves a taste, which combines earthy and flowery flavors complemented with a specific skunk. Regarding the aftertaste, some reviewers also state about feeling a chemical taste, but the best part says about its mellowness.

The Common Effects

In particular, AK-47 is so outstanding because of its influence, which is powerful but gentle at the same time. Immediately after smoking, a long-lasting cerebral buzz delivers a load of euphoria and creativity that instantly lifts the mood. In addition to this, a mellow feeling of relaxation perfectly blends with the happiness brought by previous effects. This marijuana is also pretty popular among people engaged in creative activities and can increase socialization, but only in calming circumstances.

When talking about medical appointments, this kush is just incredible. It can easily blow away excessive stress, anxiety, and depression. Also, there is a wide variety of properties for relieving body pains and headaches. Moreover, it can lend a helping hand when facing insomnia and low appetite. On the other hand, this cannabis may provide a range of unpleasant effects, such as dizziness, anxiety, and paranoia. Usually, it doesn’t, but people with a low tolerance against marijuana-induced paranoia should use this strain cautiously.

Growing Tips

AK-47 seeds are available for purchase on the Internet. It is not the most convenient strain to handle for a newbie grower because it demands some special conditions. First of all, it requires proper air ventilation because of its low resistance from mold and rotting. It also demands a lot of sunlight and fresh air. The plant can be grown indoors and outdoors. The flowering cycle takes about 7 and 9 weeks when grown indoors, and if grown outdoors, the proper time to harvest is the end of October. Wherever it grows, it always provides a generous amount of yield, which ranges between 300-500 gr/m2.

a string Indica with wild Sativas effects. It leaves you relaxed, and has a positive reinforcing side that helps to boost creativity and focus. It is a great strain for those with attention issues, but beware of this spacy-ness. Perfect for when you want to get to the Zen zone.

Ethel C,

this is one hell of a strain. It will kick your ass with just a few puffs. Definitely not for the new kid. Unlike what Smith says, I find this to be a great strain for night use as it makes you super relaxed and sedated to do anything.
