AK-47 strain 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 strain 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.
AK-47 Strain is an F1 hybrid from Dutch seed bank Serious Seeds. Created in 1992, its exact lineage remains secret, but seed bank owner and breeder Simon says it’s roughly a 65:35 Sativa/Indica hybrid of Colombian, Mexican, Thai, and Afghani descent.
Serious Seeds carries both regular and feminized AK-47 seeds and reports a strong,
fruity scent from the strain, coupled with a powerful, long-lasting “Indica” high.
AK-47 has won 16 awards, including 1st Hash at the Barcelona High Life Cup in 2005,
1st Sativa at the Toronto Treating Yourself Expo in 2011 and
3rd Hybrid at the 2011 High Times Cannabis Cup.
Serious Seeds reports AK-47 strain grows to medium height with few leaves and produces fat, dense clusters of large, resin-frosty colas in a 56-63 day flowering period. Its THC content has been tested as high as 21.5%, and the strain reportedly emits a strong odor during growth.
The breeder reports the strain is easy to grow, both indoors and out, responds well to hydroponic systems, and reaches maturity around October 15 under natural light. Feminized plants may require an extra week of flowering, and may grow shorter than non-feminized plants.
