AK-47 Strain Information
AK 47 is a hybrid with sativa predominance that comes from the crossing of 3 of the most powerful sativa such as Colombia, Mexico and Thailand with an indica from Afghanistan.
With these four special genetics, reaching a super plant has not been an easy task. It has been a long process of breeding, stabilization and selection work that marks out the AK 47 one of the best in the world.
Although originally it had a much greater sativa predominance, Serious Seeds offers us a version with more indica features. Especially in vegetative growth and in the short flowering period. But always retaining the charm of the variety that the world fell in love with more than 20 years.
Growing the AK47 strain?
It can be grown without difficulties due to its good adaptability to different environments (indoor, outdoor, substrate, hydroponics …). And in general it can give the grower abundant harvests of 500g / m² in just 8-9 weeks of flowering.
It has a medium height and produces good yields relatively rapidly. AK-47 has a short blooming time for a Sativa. The buds it produces are impressive compact buds, with very few leaves, and they shine with resin crystals.
But it does have two aspects that should not be underestimated if you want to complete a successful grow: they do not resist mold well and can have a intense smell that may require extra attention with a carbon filter.
Indoors it is recommended not to give it more than 4-5 weeks of growth. While outdoors if you have space, we recommend that you plant it directly into the soil or in a pot of more than 100 liters. This will ensure you will get a real tree that will supply you with enough buds for months and months.
As we mentioned, the AK 47 is a fast flowering plant that will be ready in about 8-9 weeks. Its long buds form into the shape of the old school coca-cola bottles.
Trimming the finished bud on the AK is always very simple due to the small leaf to buds ratio. Indoors, it will easily reach 500 grams per m2 and more than one kilo per plant outdoors which you must plant in early spring.
But the best thing about AK 47 is its extreme taste and potency. Be it in a regular or feminized version, the AK 47 continues to be perfect for making a selection of seeds in search of a good mother to accompany us for years and years. Its more than 20 international awards endorse it.
