AK-47 is a Sativa-dominate hybrid with bright white coloring. Despite its violent name, the strain imparts a very mellow feeling and can even leave one stuck in a state of "couch lock". It also leads to increased creativity. For the most part, however, AK-47 will leave you feeling uplifted, peaceful and euphoric. Many people enjoy using it while listening to music. Outside of dry mouth and eyes, the strain can also cause users to feel paranoid and sometimes dizzy. Some users also experience minor headaches.
Many users take advantage of the strain's relaxing effect to relieve stress and anxiety. Others use it to take the edge off their chronic pains and aches. Insomniacs take 1-3 hits approximately an hour before bedtime to induce relaxation. They report an increase in the number of restful nights following this routine.
Those suffering from bipolar disorder, depression and other mood disorders use this strain to help relax and regulate their mood. The strain is also used to increase appetite as well as ease nausea and vomiting.
AK-47 is a strain with a strong lineage that may have begun in the post-war 1970s as the Thai and Afghanistan cross. However, AK-47 itself did not come into existence until 1992. The strain underwent a rework in 1999 so that plants could produce uniform seeds.
Four strains were used to create AK-47: Colombia (Sativa), Mexico (Sativa), Thai (Sativa) and Afghanistan (Indica). Genetically speaking, AK-47 is sixty-five percent Sativa and thirty-five percent Indica. Its THC levels stay close to average. Its CBDs and CBNs, however, can be as high as 1.5%.
AK-47 plants are fairly tall and wide with large calyxes. The buds are dark yellowish-green with lots of crystals (trichromes) and fine red hairs. Many choose to grow AK-47 indoors in either soil or hydro, but it can be grown outside in a mild climate. Ideally, temperatures should be kept below seventy-five degrees Fahrenheit. If grown at seventy-five degrees, the plants will produce the same yield, but the buds will open and become fluffy. The strain flowers for eight to nine weeks. If grown outdoors, plants are ready for harvest in the middle of October. Under reasonable conditions, AK-47 plants can yield between 350 and 500 grams per square meter.
Best buzz I’ve ever had!
i really really love this strain when it leans more towards the indica dominant. done well indoors can yield massive loads (that's what she said.) it makes a damn fine live resin as well. A+++ would buy again.
I am in major chronic pain and I prefer a holistic approach to healing and this strain has me covered.
I have always liked AK-47, and found it helped me big time. It was hard to find ordering from medical suppliers, so I ordered 5 seeds of an auto-flower strain of AK-47 and got my permit to grow my own meds. It grows wonderfully, wish I could clone it. Luckily the first two went hermie on me after a lot of LST and HST (it responds well to both, but HST is tricky with auto flowers) so I got a ton of seeds from the first two. I got the other three tested at a local store that tests for medical users since the first two were potent AF despite being full of seeds. 24.53% THC 0.08% CBD 24.05% THC 0.10% CBD 25.58% THC 0.04% CBD Oh yeah, this is a strain worth growing at home as a go-to after work/evening strain. Really helps with my pain, without couchlock, while giving me the engrized and euphoric sativa lift it's known for. I prefer something that gives me the munchies before dinner, and change to this after dinner. I would recommend getting regular feminized seeds, not autoflowers, as this is certainly worth cloning and responds so well to HST that it's worth extra time in veg to grow monstrous plants.
