A truly classic strain, AK-47 has been around since the early 1990s. This sativa dominant hybrid was reworked and stabilized by Serious Seeds in 1999. Since then, AK-47 has won multiple Cannabis Cups and awards, and her genetics have been used to create crosses by many cannabis breeders.
A relatively small but influential seed company, Serious Seeds provide product to many of the Amsterdam coffeeshops. Thanks to this, as well as their penchant for creating varieties that blow others out of the waster, their strains have been much sought after. AK-47 is one of their most infamous strains, and for good reason; as well as being a complete knockout high, it is parent to many modern strains, including the auto flowering Cetme from Pit Bully Seeds and Serious Seeds’ own White Russian.
AK-47 is a complex mix of Colombian, Mexican, Thai, and Afghani genetics that only a master breeder like Simon from Serious Seeds could manage. It is one of the most well-known contemporary strains and one of the most hard hitting – it’s no coincidence that it was named after the most lethal rifle in the world.
This popular and easy to grow cannabis variety. Plants of medium height and quickly give a good harvest in a short time. The plant has a strong enough smell when flowering, so it is recommended to carefully consider the ventilation system.
This variety was named so because of its strong effects when smoking. It comes quickly and rigidly, then goes into a vigorous, but kind sativa-like buzz, ideal for communication, music, and creativity.
AK-47 is the most awarded variety known so far. AK-47 is the only variety that received the Best Sativa Award in 1999 and in 2003 the Best Indyka Award. In 2005, the AK-47 finished 1st in Barcelona at the HighLife Cup.
