BLIMBURN > AK 47 (MEXICAN SATIVA X AK 47)
ORIGINS OF AK 47
AK 47 sativa strain, created in 1992, has won numerous Cannabis Cup awards around the world for its soaring THC content. Don’t let its intense name fool you: AK-47 will leave you feeling relaxed and mellow. This sativa-dominant hybrid delivers a steady and long-lasting cerebral buzz that keeps you mentally alert and engaged in creative or social activities. The name was given not out of any idea of violence, but more in association with the one hit wonder this smoke truly is. Quality without compromise makes AK suitable for commercial grows or home use.
GROWING AK 47
For those hoping to fill their gardens with this resinous, skunky hybrid, growers recommend an indoor environment with soil or hydroponic setups. AK-47 is easy to grow and has a short indoor flowering time of just 53 to 63 days, while outdoor plants typically finish toward the end of October. These plants have a short flowering period for a sativa, producing compact, not overly leafy buds that gleam with a coat of resin crystals.
Blimburn advises practicing “topping” when growing these plants, meaning trimming the wide leaves from the upper part of the plant to allow the light to reach the lower stems to produce as many buds as possible. If you plan to grow outdoors, we have developed a grow guide for optimal cultivation in any area of the world.
