AK 47 strain review - Everything You Need to Know & More!

AK-47 is a sativa-dominant hybrid that produces a cerebral high for hours. Unlike its name, AK-47 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 is a great strain for listening to music, drawing or engaging in other creative arts because iit 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 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 is a great strain choice for stres, 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.

AK 47 Genetics

AK-47 is a Sativa dominant hybrid that is thought to have been originally produced in the post-vietnam era, although it did not come to market until 1992. It is a four-way genetic cross between Columbian, Thai, Mexican and Afghani strains and has a 65:35 ratio of sativa to Indica.

 

AK-47 feminized Seeds & Price

Serious Seeds revamped the strain in 1999 in order to produce more uniform seeds and the product available through licensed producers today is the Serious Seeds strain. AK-47 has a THC content of 14%-20% and a CBD content up to 1.5%. It is a great strain for relieving stress and depression as well as pain. If you are looking to relax after a long day or are sore from being a weekend warrior, this is the strain for you. It produces feelings of creativity, happiness, peacefulness and euphoria, especially when listening to music. AK-47 is recommended as a nighttime smoke due to its relaxation and calming effects. Expect to pay between $11 and $18 USD per gram for AK-47.

 

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.

AK-47 Overview

Overall, AK-47 is a fantastic daytime strain - just watch the stress ecaporate after one toke (it also can't hurt to be bathing in the sunshine!). This Cannabis Cup winner is a sativa-dominant hybrid bred by Serious Seeds. It is earthy and skunky with an overwhelming cerebral high. A jolt like the kick when handling an AK-47 this baby will shoot you into the skies of high bliss and creativity.

Hamish comes from Yorkshire in the UK but travelled across the sea to the Netherlands because the grass was greener on the other side. He has travelled to California and has sampled some of the best-tasting strains over on the West Coast. He smokes out of a flower vape and only smokes blunts, having used weed to help him quit tobacco a few years ago. He loves all things edibles and hash, but he finds concentrates to be a little unnecessary...
