NY-47 is a hunger-inducing hybrid strain bred from AK-47 and NYC Diesel. It grows in large, dense colas that have a strong sativa-dominance (80/20) and frequently tests higher than 20% for THC. The strain is a vigorous grower, a euphoria generator, and a great afternoon companion for those in a mind for fruity-chemical bliss. The strain hits hard so be vigilant about your dose of NY-47. Keep reading to learn what it’s all about.
The NY-47 strain grows eagerly – it’s the little sativa that could. Be prepared for not only a ton of lateral growth but a respectable height for a sativa too, especially indoors where this strain can get very cramped very quickly. Its buds are big and light mint-green with medium density and oversized crystal trichomes. This beautiful plant won 2nd in the Premio Interior in Valencia in 2014 and 2nd in the Premio Extraccion BHO in the same year (contests for the best interior strains and best strains for extractions). The strain’s THC levels hover between 18% and 22%, with CBD up to around 0.63%.
GROWING TIP: We recommend growing NY-47 only if you’ve had a little experience. Its yield is pretty generous and the plant resists the common crop-ruining molds and mildews, so that’s a major plus. However, its vigorous growth cycle makes it somewhat difficult to keep the plants healthy and spacious. We recommend using the SCROG growing method to keep things tidy, but probably only if you’ve done it before on strains that are more forgiving.
The effects of the NY-47 high come on almost immediately, giving you a strong sense of tingling relaxation. The plant will make you want to talk, get moving, lift weights, eat snacks, debate the universe, etc. NY-47 is best enjoyed in the afternoon with friends, food, movies, a brisk walk outside, an outdoor sport, or anything that gets you moving. The strain is as mood-uplifting as it is physically relieving, offering feelings of respite for people with stressed-out minds and bodies. Common side effects include munchies and cottonmouth, so be sure to dose correctly to your needs and abilities.
Thankfully, NY-47 doesn’t take its time telling you how it works. Its terpene profile, including valencene, caryophyllene, and limonene creates an inviting flavor of sweet grapefruit that progresses into other earthy, fruity flavors, including pear, lemon, lime, and various flowers. As you smoke, the strain turns nuttier and takes on a diesel, chemmy aftertaste. If that sounds like a winner, NY-47 has what you’re looking for.
