ELYXR Strain Spotlight AK47 A HardHitting Sativa Strain
1000+ happy customers
ELYXR is always looking for a new and exciting strain to add to our top-shelf collection of hemp flower. Right now, we’re focusing on AK-47, one of the most sought-after sativa strains in the world. If you’re looking for a sativa that gives you a powerful punch without that heavy lethargy, then you’re gonna need to get your hands on these beautiful, fragrant buds.
AK-47 is a sativa-dominant hybrid rather than a true sativa, meaning that it has both sativa and indica strains in its lineage. Its 65% sativa / 35% indica profile comes from a cross between Colombian, Mexican, Thai and Afghai strains, and any serious connoisseur will tell you that this explains a lot about the strain’s potency. In nature, it offers a THC level of somewhere between 13-20%, while offering a CBD level that’s somewhere below 1%, making it not the best choice if you want a strain that’s high in cannabidiol.
AK-47 is somewhat easy to recognize since its buds have a distinctively minty green color to them, covered in orange hairs that look almost golden at first. The trichomes coat the buds in a frosty amber color, adding to the sunset-like shades that are extremely appealing to the eye. The buds are shaped like spades, and they’re known to be quite large compared to the average.
Growing AK-47 Seeds
Although AK-47 can be grown outdoors, it needs to still be grown in a milder climate, with temperatures no lower than the mid-70s. Hence, indoors is usually better. Its flowering time is up to 9 weeks, as that’s considered very short for a sativa-dominant cannabis strain.
Flavor & Aroma
AK-47 has an herbal, earthy aroma that has a decent kick of skunkiness, with subtle notes of aromatic florals and warm spices. The actual flavor is a bit heavier on the floral notes and the spices, which makes for a tasty terpene profile that’s grounded in nature, and never too sweet. As for the flavor, it’s actually quite delicate, which isn’t necessarily indicative of the high itself that’s soon to come.
AK-47 Uses and Effects
AK-47 is a strain that is known for its uplifting effects which instantly put you into a giddy state of mind, which makes it a great choice for when your mood isn’t all that great. It can instantly turn a frown upside-down, and make you forget about your cares and worries while you live in the moment, feeling completely present and at ease. At the same time, the strain offers a nice, warm sensation throughout the muscles that makes your body feel less tense, without causing you to feel lazy like the more indica-dominant hybrids out there. This is particularly great if you’re dealing with physical discomfort or muscle tension, since it has the ability to make the muscles feel like they’re melting no matter how tight they’ve been all day.
What Can You Expect When Taking Ak-47?
AK-47 mainly gets its name from its fast-acting and heavy-hitting nature. Basically, as soon as you’re done puffing away on these buds, you’ll feel the cerebral effects kick in, causing a tingling sensation that lifts you higher and higher. But, at the same time, you won’t feel hazy or lose your focus. In fact, it’s a great social strain since you’ll be able to maintain a great conversation even at the high’s peak.
This is a strain that can give you a case of the giggles, so don’t be surprised if you burst into fits of laughter, especially if you’re partaking with some good friends. At the same time, the body ‘high’ starts to creep in, which makes you feel at ease all over without any of the heaviness you’re trying to avoid. All in all, it’s a really good daytime strain that can deliver buzzing, warm effects for several hours, making it particularly long-lasting.
