AK-47 is one of the world’s top strains and a favorite for many. There is hardly a smoker or cannabis grower who doesn’t know about this legendary strain. The sativa-dominant AK-47 as we know now was created by Simon from Serious Seeds in 1992. Its origin goes back much further to the 70s where it probably begun as a cross between Thai and Afghani.
Some may wonder where AK-47 got its name from. The strain is named after the famous Russian Kalashnikov rifle, but not so much because it would be a “violent” strain. Its high, while very powerful is actually very balanced. The strain got this name since it can literally knock out some less experienced smokers with just one hit. That’s why Simon gave this strain the nickname “One Hit Wonder”.
AK-47 is one of the most awarded cannabis strains in history. It has won many Cannabis Cup awards thanks to its very high THC content of more than 20%. You can find it on many lists of recommended “Top Cannabis Strains” as the strain that every grower and smoker should at least try once.
AK-47 produces dark, very juicy and compact buds with an intense, spicy skunk-like aroma. You can smell hints of pine, sandalwood and some lighter citrus tones. Her smoke has a robust, strong and refreshing citrus flavor with some deeper skunk undertones. The effect of AK-47, although very powerful, is relaxing and mellow. AK-47 delivers a steady and long-lasting cerebral buzz that keeps you mentally alert and engaged in creative or social activities. Its high is nicely balanced and can relax and energize at the same time.
This is a strain that can help relieve anxiety, depression, chronic pains and stress. They don’t call it a “one hit wonder” without a reason. Its high can be very powerful so that less experienced users should take it slow when they meet AK-47 for their first time.
