Many have heard of the strain AK-47, but few know of its delicious taste and calming effects. The name AK-47 comes from an eastern European country that produces it – Albania. AK-47 has a parent strain hybrid that includes South Americans. It is a Sativa dominant marijuana strain which means it has a high level of THC present.
Medical marijuana users will love the psychoactive effects of this strain. It is very uplifting and liberating, which is why many patients end up using it at nighttime or when they want to relax and treat insomnia. The high THC levels make it a suitable choice for those who are suffering from anxiety or stress.
AK-47 is an interesting mix of potent pot strains that give the smoker an exhilarating cerebral high that is fast-acting but slow to wear off completely. Some effects from AK-47 include an enjoyable and euphoric high that makes you feel happy and excited. The high is not a deep body high; it’s more of a cerebral head buzz that can be both relaxing and stimulating at the same time.
The THC level has been measured at 16-20% on average in this strain of marijuana. The adverse effects of smoking AK-47 are very minimal, making it a great choice for most patients. Smokers may experience dry eyes and mouth, red or watery eyes, and a slight headache.
Flowering usually takes 8-9 weeks, but some phenotypes may take up to 11. When the buds are properly cured and stored, they will contain 15-18% THC content. Growing this strain indoors is an ideal choice for those who enjoy discretion and control over their harvest.
The plant grows fairly tall and will stretch out during the flowering stage, making sure to have some vertical space when growing indoors. The best results are achieved with hydroponics, but this strain does just fine in the soil as well. Flavors include sour citrus and earthy pine with undertones of spice and coffee.
