AK-47 is an F1 hybrid from Dutch seed bank Serious Seeds. Created in 1992, its exact lineage remains secret, but seed bank owner and breeder Simon says it’s roughly a 65:35 Sativa/Indica hybrid of Colombian, Mexican, Thai, and Afghani descent.
Serious Seeds carries both regular and feminized AK-47 seeds and reports a strong, fruity scent from the strain, coupled with a powerful, long-lasting “Indica” high.
AK-47 has won 16 awards, including 1st Hash at the Barcelona High Life Cup in 2005, 1st Sativa at the Toronto Treating Yourself Expo in 2011 and 3rd Hybrid at the 2011 High Times Cannabis Cup.
A deep toke from the Timeless vape, another long day in the books. A familiar feeling begins crawling up your back. It settles in just at the back of your head. What is this feeling you ask? It’s a small gang of figurative Somali pirates lurking within this strain…they have an agenda, to steal all of your stress and anxiety away. Once they put the AK-47 in your face, you know they’re in control. The vapor whispers into your ear as you exhale “I’m the Captain now.” Take a puff and let your troubles be stolen from you. This strain will wage war on your worries, enjoy!
“Oh blyat'” -Less than fifteen seconds after passing the joint. Only went up from there.
Hydro grow. Flavor was very potent. Excellent medicine.
I found ak mentally engaging and uplifting while sedating on the body, a nice toe tingler. Great combo for daytime relief of stress and depression, moderate pain relief and appetite stimulant. Can put me in a creative headspace in the proper setting. This herb can really pull the veil down and open your third eye which some might not be ready to experience. Pleasurable mentally and physically on Chakra centers in the body, spiritually enlightening herb ?
Walked on the streets for over 2 hours while listening to music. Very uplifting out of body experience. You also start to get very creative. Your mind is overflowing with ideas. You can also feel the wind very nicely. Wind makes you tingly. Everything seems like a dream or footage of a music video. Can make you a little dizzy sometimes. Makes you very relaxed to the point you would easily sleep. You FEEL the music. Music is heaven with this strain, especially 90s rock or any music you listened to as a kid.
My eyelids and i feel like we are wearing sweaters.
AK-47 is probably my most favourite strain… probably. This is the bud you smoke when you need to convert your friends to stonerism. It gives you an unforgettable high with all the right features, euphoria, giggles, laziness, munchies, and some pain relief too. I urge ALL novice smokers and first-timers to try this strain, it will turn you into a stoner for life. Extremely peaceful high – quite the opposite of its name.
Only blue dream gets me to feel the perfect euphoria and anti-anxitey and depression efects anymore. But at least ak-47 does make me fell normal again, and it is the only reason i give it a 9, if i havent smoked any strains for over 2 weeks ak-47 well give me an immediate rush after i exhale, it is in my opionion extremely short and i have to smoke it for the rest of the week just to not go in to the horrible depression of my life but i consisder it the best anti depressant by far, if youve been smoking a lot more than normal people i will warn you, this strain will stop getting you high but you will feel so much more happier about everything its worth it.
by far one of my favorite all time strains I loved the energy behind it and the creativity state of mind it put me in. there’s never a bad time to have the trigger pulled in the AK 47 as soon as you hit it welcome to a more live happy world my friend!!!
I have 40+ years experience growing and using cannabis, a masters degree in agri/horticulture from MSU and will break each review down as follows from my own personal experience with seeds or clones obtained directly from the original breeders, in this case Serious Seeds: – Use; Sativa effects, happy, euphoric, relaxed, great for depression, anxiety, stress, motivation and daytime use. It is a very nice strain with mostly sativa type effects, happy, euphoric, relaxed yet not to the point of making you unmotivated. If anything, it actually motivates you and it’s great for daytime use. This is a perfect strain for depression, anxiety, stress, motivation and creativity. The buds are nice and dense and have a very nice fruity smell and taste with a very smooth smoke. Grow; Indoors: She can be finished in 7-8 weeks. – Outdoors: It’s an excellent and a great choice if you live in a cooler area where plants need to finish earlier and you still want something with strong sativa effects. At 42*N latitude she started flowering the last week of July and was ready around the third week of September, contrary to Leafly’s estimate. – Very easy to grow both indoors and out. Plants have a distinct sativa leaf that is very narrow and grow in the typical pine tree look. The best thing about this strain is it’s sativa dominance in effect and look, yet it has the Afghan gene that will make her finish very fast for a sativa, with very little stretching once flowering is induced. Has a high leaf to bud ratio in volume but not by weight as there are a lot of leaves to trim but most are very small and narrow. Strain seemed very stable with little variation between phenotypes. Very similar to my AK-48 review except AK-47 will finish even sooner but is a little less aromatic.
Quick head high then a overwhelming calm. To me it tasted fruity but seeing other reviews it seems to vary by person to person.
If you have bad problems with your anxiety and asthma I highly recommend ak-47 for pms as well. I find it takes my mind off my emotions and allows me to laugh and be happy again definitely one for relaxing and getting back into who you are free, happy, and full of life again. Killed my major mood disorders and massive depression.
AK47 is definitely a memorable strain. I recall the first time I received my package from Delta after having read many reviews here. It did not disappoint, very good at reducing nausea while at the same time very energetic with an uplifted mood, not euphoric by any means but felt good. At times I felt I was prone to chatter quickly but could have been in my mind. As long as it’s available I would have it around as part of my daytime mix. A very small downside for me is the after taste of a diesel, chemical or sour bitter taste, when vaping. It does smooth out after a tug or two.
Relaxing and mood elevating. I’ve only tried it late afternoon and feel it’s perfect for that time of day. Instead of moving around , it’s fun to stay in one place and focus on any sitting activity. Guess it makes me physically lazy and mentally stimulated. You can definitely get into anything you feel like focusing on. Oh, although I probably wouldn’t want to do my taxes right now…. Could be a bit frustrating. This strain is more for creativity than number crunching.
This is my review of AK47, a Sativa dominant hybrid. The effects are Euphoric, happy relaxed, focused and UPLIFTED! I tried this at night time, lol. I do not recommend it for sleep. This gives you a heady high that keeps you alert and reduces fatigue allowing for me to perform my daily tasks with ease. Or just sit back and write a review. This has a sweet earthy pine flavor, and smells like fresh cut grass in the vaporizer.
I love this stuff. Have the homies over and we just float and laugh at everything. Ben & Jerrys + Waffles + Knocked Up/Hangover/Cheech & Chong = Best Night Ever
This is the strain I smoke when I’ve been smoking all day and have built up a massive tolerance, because it can bring me back and kick my ass unlike any other strain. Every batch from every grower will have different THC content but there’s something about this stuff that seems so STRONG, I guess that’s why they named it what they did. Buzz: Quick euphoric up high for a bit then a pretty pronounced crash very characteristic of skunk strains. Smell: f**in craaaazy. The pungency and spiciness of trainwreck with a bit more fruitiness (similar genetics to Trainwreck, a mishmash of worldwide landraces). Just sour and pungent and nasty but in the best possible way. I always keep this one around.
This strain had me practically giddy….for sure it’s the reason I went on a house-cleaning spree!! Take note, this is NOT a strain for those intending to be put to sleep…this is work/activity weed. Try it, I doubt if you’ll be disappointed!
I love ak-47 but don’t plan on being productive if you smoke this. This is one of the “stereotypical” college stoner strains. Get ready to stink up the place, kick back, lose track of time, and chill with your friends. Your mind will go places, with or without your body. Perfect for watching movies or listening to music. Knocks you out if you need a good night’s sleep.
AK-47. The name conjures images of Rambo mowing down redneck republicans while screaming “they drew first blood, sarge!” Fortunately, while AK-47 certainly has the power of its namesake, you won’t be experiencing Sly Stallone dripping sweat all over you. A good balanced hybrid, I would judge this about an even 50/50 between the sativa and indica effects. The head space is good- mellow, pleasant but motivated. The body effects are just enough to be there- killing your pain, but not your motivations. Taste is actually rather complex- skunk and floral notes compete with a curious earthiness at the back of your throat while a sweet sensation covers your tongue as the thick smoke curls and expands. Speaking of that smoke… this is a cougher. After repeated use, I noticed a pronounced harshness/menthol feeling at the back of the throat. Maybe this was because I had shatter than flower… but it was unpleasant enough that a beverage is a required accessory when medicating. Didn’t stop me though, and I even went back for a second batch. That says something. Not stellar, but a very good everyday “go-to” that does what it should. All in all, a very pleasant and well balanced hybrid that effectively riddles your pain and stress with a barrage of semi-automatic bullets… without leaving you bleeding out in the dirt from a sucking chest wound. Form: Concentrate (HYH Society Shatter) Tokes/Hits to effect: 3 to 4 Taste: Skunk/Flower/Earth/Menthol Cough Level: Well, I only need one lung anyway… Final Verdict: Recommended.
I really liked this strain until the come down. It’s a very clear high, no anxiety (at first), light body feel. I first had it sitting on the porch outside and if you are sitting, you’ll stay sitting, but I didn’t feel stuck there. It made me ponder nature, very creative thoughts. I decided to try some again before a hike. What I discovered about this strain is that it makes you focus. I didn’t notice much when I was up walking around, but when I sat by a creek, I became intrigued by the water and the light. People came by and I wasn’t especially talkative, so I wouldn’t take it to socialize. I actually liked this one until a few hours later when I experienced a very depressing emotional shift that felt “chemical” to me and was very dark. It gave me a panic attack. I’m not really prone to depression, but i hated the way I felt and nothing seemed to make it better for hours. For that reason, I wouldn’t try AK-47 again. It wasn’t worth it even though the actual high was enjoyable. Also, it’s a stupid name. The high is mellow but they name it after a violent weapon? That’s just dumb. On second thought, it did have me panicking about imminent destruction at a certain point so maybe that’s not too far off.
Fresh. i vaped it in the bath, it made me shit myself. litterally.
this lasted a really long time and i felt like i was out of reality and i ended up getting hit in the face with a football when i was playing football. it was pretty fucking good. -Tyler
This strain will have you laughing and wanting to listen to some tunes! The strain itself looks and smells amazing! This is still after 8 year veteran smoker, this is one of the top strains in potency out there! I can’t count on fifty hands how many strains I’ve inhaled, but this always makes me feel like a noob smoker cause it’s so unique of a high that it will take you back to the first couple times you have smoked!! The good ol’ days!
I have fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, and chronic fatigue. After smoking, I had the pleasure of not feeling my legs in constantly burning pain since I got sick in 1998! Definitely putting this on my list of go-to’s for relief.
My birthday was yesterday and my best friend gave me a free 8th of this strain and let me tell you…. I was so high. My back felt so good, my warm vibration feeling was off the hook and my birthday was 10x better because of it. I highly recommended it 🙂 – date 06-08-2016
This AK-47 is gorgeously coated in golden trichomes. Nicely dense buds and broad leaved. Grinds out to become very puffy to reveal the density. Smoking out of a normal 1 perk bong with ice. Had a minimal breakfast and have been awake for 2 hours and I am smoking about 0.35g. Toke 1: Very nice earthy taste, slow developing cerebral euphoria with a slight feeling of eye pressure. Toke 2: Hits hard but only reverberates minor coughs. Lungs feel fine. Heightened cerebral high. Toke 3 and 4 back-to-back: delivers a huge cherried hit and a minor cough. Already a sense of the intensely developing cerebral stoned euphoria. Toke 5: Bowl simmers to a left-over small one hit before it’s cached. continuing effects from earlier. Last Half-Hit: Ash pulled through. no hit 🙁 Now, the high. Music gives a body sense high. Overwhelming happiness in the music, laughing and smiling from ear to ear. Urge to dance or your body feels uncomfortable. I feel each thing that touches my body including hair falling on forehead in different places. I’m going to get more food now definitely want to sit down and relax and smile. Making food now, but I won’t waste your time with my jibber jabber.
Great bud…. Very indica heavy. I smoked about 2.5g with a friend (we both use it for pain, so we usually smoke together). After smoking you feel dizzy, but that goes away in like 2 minutes. After that you feel like you are wearing a very tight hat. Your temples feel like they have something pushing on them. It feels pretty nice. This goes away after 10-15 minutes. Most of my peak period was spent eating and drinking because I had some dry mouth and hunger. This isn’t a very social strain. Its a nice strain for burning by yourself to some music. Manages pain and stress very well. I would give this a 7 because its strong for a while, but about 60 minutes after smoking it totally goes away leaving you with a “hung over” feeling. This carried on for hours and kinda sucked. I would reccomend rolling joints with 2/3 of this, and 1/3 sativa dominant strain (see blue dream, green crack, etc). This takes some of the laziness and hang over away. Without this sativa its very easy to crash because this is GREAT for insomnia. Congrats to anyone who has made it to the end of this….. I’m pretty stoned on this stuff right now, so this has kind of rambled. Hope everyone finds this helpful. -Cheers
