About Purple AK-47
Although it’s difficult to find in most parts of the United States, Purple AK-47 has made a name for herself with a well-balanced set of effects. Unknown breeders have crossed AK-47 and Grand Daddy Purp in just the right way to create a bud that offers an ideal experience for both medical and recreational users.
While the numbers may not seem very high, this strain tops out at an 18% THC level that feels much stronger than you’d think. Nugs are pleasing enough to look at, with a bright green and purple tone that’s rich with trichomes and brown pistils. What really tends to draw people into Purple AK-47 are the pungent and sweet aromas of pine, plums, and honey. Many note that it can be overwhelming, but for the most part it’s an enjoyable experience.
Those who like to feel their high in addition to relishing in the mental effects will love this strain, as Purple AK-47 brings a huge dose of euphoria along with strong body tingles. Your mind may feel like it’s slightly racing, but thankfully that’s balanced out by a slightly sedated feeling that keeps you functional yet relaxed. Depending on your tolerance level, you might find that smoking just a hit or two will be enough to get you through a nice afternoon while others may want to go full force and lull themselves into a deep sleep.
The moment we mentioned strong tingles, medical patients probably got really excited. Rest assured, Purple AK-47 is exceptional for dealing with bodily pain, so headaches, muscle spasms, and even cramps can all be soothed quite effectively with this strain. As great as it is for physical ailments, your mental state will also get a huge boost from this bud, offering a reprieve from nagging stress, depression, and more.
Purple AK-47 is a smart choice if you want to try a new strain in your home garden, although we wouldn’t necessarily recommend it if it’s your first time out. The plant can be slightly difficult to manage, but after 7 to 9 weeks of gentle love and care, you’ll be pleased to find a pretty significant yield. At most, these beauties will reach about 5’ tall, and while that’s small compared to other strains, you’ll want to make sure you have an adequate amount of space on your hands.
For whatever reason, this bud is only commonly found in Oregon, California, and Michigan of all places, and while it does make an appearance on the black market from time to time, those instances are far and few between. Whenever you do see this special strain at your local dispensary, make sure to grab some up and save it for a rainy day - or just a time when you need to feel like you’re wrapped in a giant hug.
