This easy-to-grow plant is Serious's most popular because of her outstanding quality. AK-47 has been often copied or used by other seed companies for crosses. Just look at that list of cup wins!
This plant is of medium height and produces very good yields with an extremely STRONG odour and smoke. Take extra care for odour control when growing near neighbors! The taste you'll find is earthy and floral.
The name was given not out of any idea of violence, but more in association with the ‘one hit wonder’ that the smoke is. After its introduction visitors to coffee shops in Amsterdam regularly passed out after a hit of the AK-47.
Quality without compromise makes AK-47 suitable for commercial or home-grows. For a mostly sativa cross these plants have a short flowering period, producing compact buds with few leaves that gleam with a coat of resin crystals.
Winning so many awards in cannabis competitions proves it is a favorite to grow as well as smoke. She delivers a very strong, long lasting and pleasant high.
