AK 47 is one of the most famous Dutch genetics, winner of multiple awards and one of the most cultivated varieties in history.
Many seed banks now offer their own versions. But it has also served for the creation of new hybrids.
Although it is often associated with the Serious Seeds seed bank, this statement is not entirely correct. AK 47 was developed at Cerebral Seeds in the mid 90’s like Bubblegum and Chronic. Simon, who a couple of years later would found Serious Seeds, was a breeder and one of its partners.
AK47 is a polyhybrid that combines marijuana genetics from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and Afghanistan. It has a clear Sativa dominance, being more suitable for outdoor than indoor growing.
Since its appearance, it has managed to conquer not only important awards, but also all types of growers and consumers.
How to grow AK 47
Its great Sativa heritage makes its indoor cultivation not easy. But not complicated either. In addition to short growth phases, an apical pruning or branch guidance technique is recommended.
In this way, the height it could reach will not be a problem. Even so, in the pre-flowering phase it tends to stretch quite a bit.
The flowering time is quite short, being a Sativa-dominant hybrid. It can be harvested between 8 and 9 weeks after changing the photoperiod.
Outdoors it is a plant that will show its full potential. It is not uncommon to obtain specimens that reach 2.5-3 meters in height in very sunny climates and with good growing conditions.
It is harvested between mid to late October, so it is not recommended for areas where the first rains occur in this month. It prefers sunny climates such as the Mediterranean.
The large and very compact buds, joining together form long sticks that are very easy to manicure. Due to its high resin production, it is a feminized variety very suitable for making hash.
The flavor and aroma is intense and complex. Notes of sweet lemon, ripe fruit, pine and noble woods can be appreciated.
The effects are powerful, physical and energetic, but also with a certain point of relaxation. It is the typical variety that can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
What we like the most
- Very fast flowering for a Sativa dominant plant.
- Very resistant variety.
- High production

What we like least
