AK47 is a hybrid marijuana strain created in the late 1990s. It was originally bred by a group of Dutch breeders and is now one of the most popular strains of cannabis in the world, at least according to Wikipedia.

The name AK47 comes from its genetics which are Afghani x Thai x Colombian. The plant has flowers that are light green and have an earthy, citrus taste with a peppery finish when consumed.

AK47 is a 60% indica / 40% Sativa hybrid. This variety has also been crossed with Northern Lights and Skunk to create other versions of the strain. This strain is a hardy plant that can grow in most conditions, especially outdoors. In fact, this strain thrives in temperature ranges between 60-75 degrees Fahrenheit and can endure harsher weather, even droughts.

Effects are quite surprising and pleasant. This marijuana strain has been known to produce a relaxing body high that helps ease pain while leaving the consumer with a sense of euphoria and heightened senses. The high makes it perfect for sipping on slow moving music while creating arts and crafts or simply enjoying some great conversation with friends.

A high yielding plant that can grow to be 8 feet tall. AK47 will get outdoors in seasonal climates and benefit from a well-drained soil with lots of organic matter mixed in. It is best grown indoors but can be grown outside in all conditions during the spring and fall months if you keep it hydrated. It is possible to grow this strain outdoors, although doing so requires a large amount of indoor space since it is quite bushy.

Where to buy

AK47 is inhaled most through combustible means such as a joint or bong. It can also be enjoyed in edible form or with a vaporizer. It is also available in other forms such as tinctures, edibles and concentrates.
