AK-49 is a Sativa dominant cannabis strain (70% Sativa and 30% Indica). It is also hard to come by. Vision Seeds created AK-49 by crossing several classic strains: Afghani, Mexican Thai, and an AK-47 phenotype (as the myth goes). Although its family ties to the strain AK-47, AK-49 is quite rare. It is also much more potent than its forerunner.

If you’re searching for a well-balanced head high, this is the strain for you. Cerebral effects often associated with Sativa dominant strains are very much present in AK-49. Taming monkey mind and restoring the ability to focus are some of the benefits of consuming this strain.

Overview Of AK-49

Like it’s genetic predecessor AK-47, this strain cultivated by Vision Seeds offers an array of balancing effects. This cerebral focused strain will impact both veteran and greenhorn smokers.

The refreshing aroma, the citrusy flavor, and the boost of mental alertness all contribute to the welcoming sense of uplifting energy that accompanies this strain. AK-49 is beneficial for both recreational and medical uses. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to get your hands on.

AK-49 Effects And Benefits

AK-49 boasts a strong Sativa presence, dimming the Indica properties of this strain. You may feel relaxed and calm, but never couch-locked or burned out. The most beneficial effect of consuming AK-49 is the all-around sense of balance and wellbeing. With THC levels creeping past 20% you can expect milk euphoria.

  • Happy
  • Focused
  • Creative
  • Energetic

Expect some serious energetic and creative sensations that flow through your body. They still will give you the ability to stay focused on the tasks and get some serious work completed.

While you may feel stimulated, don’t expect heart-racing palpitations (think: energy drink). No, because of the slight Indica presence, you will feel more refreshed as you would be right after a blissful yoga session or a good night rest.

Because this strain is bread with happiness and balance in mind, medical cannabis users can benefit both physically and mentally from incorporating AK-49 in their flower line-up.

Because of the intense Sativa-generated uplifting sensations of positivity, this bud helps with mental symptoms like stress and unhappiness.

Physical symptoms like PMS, migraines, and digestive issues may be treated effectively with AK-49. Because cannabinoids like THC work with our inner endocannabinoid system (ECS), strains like this are the best choice to sooth unwanted issues.

For recreational users, this strain is a great way to spend a Friday night. It can help you ease out of the work-week grind, and into a sense of pure joy.

AK-49 Attributes

If you follow the rules, the AK-49 strain contains between 20-22% THC. This intense bud is tough enough to ease unwanted symptoms, yet still gentle for first-time users.  The nugs of AK-49 are dense and frosty with copious amounts of crystals and pistols.

AK-49 has a deep earthy aroma and sandalwood taste on the inhale combined with a slightly fruity taste on the exhale (thanks to the sliver of Indica present). Think: inhaling a deep breath while walking through a densely wooded forest. The classic skunk scent that often accommodates Sativa dominant strains is also present.

Where To Buy AK-49 Flower And Seeds

Because this strain is quite rare, if you truly want to get your hands on it, your best bet is to buy feminized seeds and grow your own. Yes, dispensaries are popping up across North America (and online too), but AK-49 is not the easiest strain to find.

Look for a reputable seed supplier or go straight to the source – Vision Seeds.

If you are living in a legal country or state, call your local dispensary to request AK-49.

AK-49 Grow And Genetics Info

Unfortunately, the strain lineage of this wonder-bud is not in black and white. Some say it is solely an AK-47 phenotype re bread while others attest to it being a combination of Thai, Mexican, Columbian, and Afghani strains. No one really knows for sure.

What we do know is how this strain grows. Of course, there will be trial and error (that goes without saying) when breeding a new strain, we do know a few things about growing it.

You can buy AK-49 auto fem reviews straight from Vision Seeds (the breeder). AK-49 takes between 10 and 12 weeks to cultivate, which is average harvest time.

Strain Review: What People Say About AK-49


Because the home-grow scene is very much still in its seedling phase, we have yet to unearth enough concrete information on what cannabis growers are saying about AK-49.

Generally speaking, the seeds for this strain are grown indoors or hydroponically. You can grow it outside too, it grows fruitfully in mild climates.

Growers choose AK-49 for its medical features that promote restful sleep, boost mood, reduce stress, ease unwanted digestive systems, and mute physical pain.


DollfaceKillah rates AK-49  ⅘ stars. They say it is a true Sativa because of the effects and it is very potent. They do not recommend it for newcomers. You will feel a boost of energy without the anxiety that sometimes accompanies hard-hitting Sativa strains.

ReebootRyan gives AK-49 ⅘ stars also. He says it’s a great strain if you are out and about, like to be busy, or have things to do. You will not feel couch-locked or tired with this strain. He also notes that it's very cerebral high.

Wilros02 rates AK-49 with a single star saying “Not a gun even, y’all trying to fool a brother”. Maybe Wilros02 was looking for something a little more heavy-hitting.

How Much Does AK-49 Cost?

It is unclear as to how much finished AK-49 flower or concentrates cost, but we do know seeds cost between $15-30 for 3-10 seeds. The innovators at Vision Seeds have also created an auto-flowering version of this strain that cultivates in 8 weeks.

In Sum

AK-49 may sound like a violent strain but in fact, it's just the opposite. When you need a helping hand, a friendly companion, or just a way to escape from it all for a few hours, this strain will serve you right.

It’s easy to overindulge with this specific bud, so make sure you are well aware of your tolerance levels before going for it. Try this strain when you need a pick me up or during the weekend to enhance your already epic adventures.

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.

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.
