AK 47 strain

More than anything else, AK-47 is a complex cultivar. Even though the name sounds drastic, the AK-47 strain provides a mellow and joyous high. The strain has a long history and is popular all throughout the world. It's also one of the top-selling Sativa-dominant strains all around.

Let's take a closer look at what AK-47 can offer your senses!

The Origins Of AK-47

AK 47 strain genetics

AK-47 is one of the oldest strains out there. It was originally developed by Serious Seeds in the Netherlands back in 1992. From there, the AK-47 cannabis strain took on the 90s and is still making waves today.

This legendary hybrid comes as a result of crossing four landraces to yield a Sativa-dominant powerhouse which, despite its name, provides a mellow, relaxing high suitable for all types of cannabis users. The strain is the child of four pure genetics:

  • Colombian (Sativa)
  • Mexican (Sativa)
  • Thai (Sativa)
  • Afghani (Indica)

AK-47 is also quite famous for its effects and flavors, for which the strain has earned dozens of awards from different corners of the world. Some popular ones include the High Life Cup award, High Times Cannabis Cup, Copa Cata Zona Norte award, and the Great Canadian Canna Cup award, among many others. AK-47's popularity is also thanks to the fact that it can be easily grown indoors or outdoors even by amateur growers. That’s why you’ll now find so many seed banks offering AK-47 seeds.

AK-47 Effects: How’s The High?

AK 47 strain review

Those who enjoy cannabis but want to eliminate the possibility of feeling anxious will love this strain for her effects that begin as a cerebral buzz to promote creativity and slowly fade into a deep body relaxation – all without a shred of anxiety! To take this a step further, growers can ensure they avoid a racy high by harvesting later than they usually would to allow for the majority of trichomes to turn amber, indicating that her effects lean more toward the body buzz.  In any case, you’re sure to feel giggly, and a smile will light up your face. Motivating and euphoric, AK-47 can easily take you back to those days where a joint meant hours of laughter.
