Since it’s first introduction in the 1990s, AK cannabis genetics have been increasingly popular among both marijuana growers and users. Nirvana’s version of this plant, the AK-48, is known for it’s potency and an extremely quick finishing time. While it’ll usually be ready for harvest around 9 weeks, when grown in optimal conditions, this plant can finish in as little as 48 days.
Although AK-48 is an indica dominant hybrid genetically, it has retained most of the a sativa qualities when it comes to smell, taste, and especially the high. These plants produce hard, dense buds that are covered in trichomes and have a very pungent aroma.
These landrace crosses have a few different characteristics that make them so famous. They also normally retain a fruity, smooth smoke. The final thing that they usually inherit, and AK48 is no different, is their easiness to grow.
