You don’t go to a gun fight without a loaded weapon. And you can’t talk about the best strains out there without mentioning AK-47. It’s name tends to scare people, but in reality, it’s a bomb Sativa-dominant Hybrid that is the perfect medicine for those that can’t handle a full blown Sativa.
AK-47 doesn’t have the typical overwhelming fruity smell of strict Sativas. It’s got an earthy, somewhat lemony smell to it a look that is very similar to Sour Diesel, along with a light greenish/yellow tint to the leaves that’s almost luminous. AK-47 won’t wow you with purple streaks or OG womps, but it’s a more than reliable Sativa that is as steady as they come. In terms of Sativas, AK-47 is right below the Sour Diesel pedestal.[nggallery id=29]
I recently picked up a batch of Ak-47 from Rite Greens the other day (among many others pre-Coachella strains), and it’s indeed quite impressive. The affect is unlike most Sativa-dominant strains, in that my heart was not pounding, my thoughts were not too racing, and I didn’t feel like the world was moving too fast around me. AK-47 (when done right) comes with very uplifting, lucid high with a surprisingly calming affect on the body.
Believe it or not, this legendary strain is found in but a meager 24 dispensaries. That needs to change, and fast. If it’s the right kind of weapon, AK-47 always brings the heat.
As always, make sure your AK-47 is fully loaded.
