Serious Seeds AK47
For many years now one of the most popular strains of marijuana is Serious Seeds AK47, it is fair to say that it has become one of the classic and most respected strains of super potent cannabis in the world.
AK47 was created way back in 1992 by Simon, a master cannabis breeder from Serious Seeds.
Simon tested thousands of experimental plants with varying genetics before he realized his goal of creating a strong, high-quality sativa / indica cannabis.
The exact genetics of Serious Seeds AK47 have never been revealed by Simon although it is known that it was created from Mexican, Colombian, Thai and Afghani genetics. AK47 is 50/50 sativa / indica hybrid.
AK47 continues to impress with its award-winning qualities, and in just a decade AK47 has won 10 prizes at various competitions such as the cannabis cup.
Serious Seeds AK47 – Super Cannabis
Serious Seeds gave the name AK47 to this strain not out of any idea of violence, but rather the one hit wonder that it is, not surprising really given that it has a THC content of 20%.
These medium-sized plants often have indica dominant characteristics showing more of the indica genetic traits. She produces a fantastic number of side branches and her leaves are dark green.
Although every AK47 plant will be slightly different in aroma and appearance, they will all be equal when it comes to smoke them, 2 tokes you will be happy as Larry!
Without exception AK47 develops a large fat main cola along with plenty of superb secondary tops. The size of the single AK47 calyx is uncommonly big, but most impressively is that all colas result in compact, not too leafy buds that gleam with a coat of resin crystals.
AK47 has a high calyx-to-leaf ratio which means that you get not so many leaves but plenty of flowers with fat chunky nuggets with huge reds hairs that are packed full of glistening resinous trichome crystals.
The short flowering period means that flowering of these cannabis seeds usually takes around 9 weeks.
If taken care of properly the yield is way above average, Serious Seeds mention that 350-500g per m2 can be expected under good indoor growing conditions, which is awesome for just 53-63 days of flowering time. Outdoors, half a pound plus per plant is common.
Serious Seeds AK47 will grow well both indoors and outdoors, and thrives outdoors and in hydroponics situations as many growers around the globe have reported.
The buds break up nicely, unleashing a strong, sweet and fruity aroma. Your fingers will stick together when you break it up because of the thick coating of resin that glistens over every bud.
The high is a nice mix between the common sativa and indica traits. Because AK47 is slightly more indica dominant you will feel a heavy narcotic “couchlock” indica stoned but the team at Serious Seeds have successfully managed to blend in nicely the sativa cerebral up-high, and if harvested slightly early you can capatilize on its great cerebral effect. All in all, it is very much though a one hit, and very powerful uplifting high. Be careful how much you have because getting greedy will likely result in over munching and hours of sleeping.
As with other strains of cannabis, many people have repeatedly said that it makes them horny and have fits of laughter.
For me the great thing about Serious Seeds AK47 is that the effects lasted for 7 hours! Which is the longest time that I have been high off three small puffs.
The taste is both sweet and spicy, somewhat a light lemony flavor with a hint of sandalwood, satisfying even the pickiest of connoisseur. The smell is off the hook, incredibly fruity. The smoke is thick but not harsh, and incredibly easy on the lungs.
Should I Buy Original AK47 From Serious Seeds or Can I Get The Same Seeds Cheaper Elsewhere?
Many other cannabis seedbanks and breeders have used the original Serious Seeds AK47 to produce their own marijuana seeds, in other words, they have simply copied Serious Seeds AK47 to create their own seeds. Some growers will say that the Serious Seeds version is better, but I’ve ordered from Serious Seeds and other seedbanks and the plants were just the same.
From my personal experience I can say the copied versions and variations of AK47 that exist are the same quality as the original by Serious Seeds. One example is Nirvana Seeds AK48, I purchased ak48 seeds through Nirvana (and many other fine cannabis seeds) and their AK48 produces really nice plants, the ones that I grew were equivalent to Serious Seeds AK47.
A major issue with ordering the AK47 seeds from Serious Seeds is that the do not ship to the USA, so I’ve always ordered my seeds from Nirvana and been happy everytime.
