AK-49 Strain Cannabinoids

THC 19.25 - 22% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.31 - 0.43% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.34 - 0.79% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.26 - 1.21% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.16 - 0.31% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.12 - 0.7% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

I never smoked any weed that made me feel good as this one. The cerebral is quite high like most reviews here mention and oh boy, did I say that it gave me the best sex in years? It makes me aroused, happy, and energetic.

This is the best strain if you want to get stuff done. It doesn’t drag you down at all. It is a vera cerebral high and quite at that. This is the best daytime strain ever! I highly recommend it.

This sativa acted more like an indica, I smoked one puff and it made me couch locked. It however makes you focused and active and allows you to do anything you want. I am a season cannabis user and I can tell you that this shit is potent so take less unless you want to be brain dead. It made me paranoid!

Im a new smoker and this has made me have two big concerns when it comes to my weed. The first thing that worries me is that I dont want my weed to be too strong and the other one is that I dont want it to be weak too. This strain is well balanced and has been great for me.

Friend of mine gave me a batch of AK-49 fudge like a week ago and it only took me two pieces to get stoned AF. At the time I didnt even what strain this was but he finally told me what it was two days ago so I got some so I could try it in a blunt.

If there is a real gun thats called an AK-49 Id expect it to have a kick thats at least half as strong as this bud. This is the go to strain if you need a quick boost when youre feeling down.

Write your reply

This weed helps a lot with my depression, whenever I feel so low that I cant even do nothing or feel anything a few drags of this strain are all I need. It does make me a little dizzy though but its not that bad.

Yeah it is true that AK-49 makes you feel super active but what I like about it is how it can get you relaxed too. I prefer hitting a blunt of this strain after work though so I can do a few chores around the house and sleep like a baby after.
