AK 47 strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that produces a cerebral high for hours.The AK 47 strain is far from violent. It will stimulate the creative centers in your brain and give you one great idea after another. Its peaceful, euphoric high will leave you in a dreamy state, while the CBD helps relax sore and inflamed muscles (AK-47 is a high CBD strain with at least 1.5%).

AK 47 Strain  is a great strain for listening to music, drawing, or engaging in other creative arts because it puts your mind in a relaxed and positive space. It would also be a great relaxing strain to pair with yoga or meditation in order to fully open the mind.

AK 47 Strain has won several cannabis cups and is a go-to strain for many consumers. Its roots are thought to date back to the post-Vietnam era, although the strain got a re-work in 1999 by Serious Seeds so that more uniform seeds could be produced and offered to the market. 

AK 47 Strain is a great strain choice for stress, depression, headaches, pain, and insomnia. The indica qualities come through slightly which doesn't interfere with the creative flow but rather induces a full-body relaxation.

Can you get AK-47 in edibles, oil, wax, or shatter?

AK-47 is available in dried bud, oil, wax, shatter, and edible form. This is because you can make any strain into any form provided you know the method. Making edibles is probably the easiest; you simply have to heat your weed up to activate it, mix it with fat, and then cook it normally. It really is that simple and also simple with a strain like AK-47. Though, the AK-47 strain is definitely one to try through a flower vape.

AK-47 Growing Tips

AK-47 is a large growing plant with white hairs and sticky trichomes. While it has a distinctly skunky, earthy smell, the tasting notes are sweet and floral. AK-47 is a strain better grown indoors, although it may be grown outside in milder climates with temperatures staying below 75 degrees Fahrenheit.


AK-47 Yield

It is recommended that AK-47 be grown indoors, as it will have higher yields of 3-6 oz. per square foot. AK-47 is moderately challenging to grow, as temperatures need to be between 60 degrees and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. If temperatures are too high, the buds will begin to open and the final product will become fluffy. Therefore, indoor hydroponic or pro-mix mediums produce the best results.
