Summary: AK-47 has a high THC content, and delivers a potent hit. It's a great strain for combating insomnia, depression, and pain relief. The high results in a relaxed body due to its indica heritage.
AK-47 is a 50/50 sativa/indica hybrid that has been a crowd pleaser for decades. It has a unique pine-like flavor, and it smells just as equally amazing. AK-47 buds have a yellowish tint, and do not get the vibrant red hairs that some people love. The looks of AK-47 may be the worst part of the strain, however, the potent high of AK-47 is plenty enough to forget about the strain’s lack-luster appearance.
The creators of AK-47 at Serious Seeds claim to have tested the strain at 20% THC content. AK-47 should be taken lightly during the day, because it can create some heavy limbs. It is a great strain for pain relief, depression, and for fighting insomnia. It is also a very easy strain to grow indoors, and has become a medical marijuana advocate favorite for personal grows.
AK-47 did not make it to legendary strain status by being an average strain, and therefore deserves a 4.5/5 star rating.
Parents: Exact lineage of the strains is unknown, but Serious Seeds did go on record to say that they bred it from Afghani, Columbian, Mexican, and Thai seed stock.
