  Breeder's Description - 'AK47'
This easy to grow plant is our most popular. It is of medium height and produces good yields quite quickly. Extremely STRONG odor and smoke. Take extra care for odor control when growing near neighbors. The name was given not out of any idea of violence, but more in association with the ‘one hit wonder’ that the smoke is. Quality without compromise makes AK suitable for commercial grows or home use. These plants have a short flowering period for a sativa, producing compact, not too leafy buds that gleam with a coat of resin crystals. Winning SEVEN prizes!! in Cannabis competitions, including ...continued

I've been growing AK for a year or so (4/5 crops).
It was given to me as a cutting.
I know there are two identified AK phenos: the Indica one that blooms in 50/55 days, and the more Sativa one, blooming in 67/70 days, which is the one I have.
It's an incredibly good pheno, one of my favorites in

The sativa pheno of AK 47 grows tall and has thin, flexible branches and stem. This makes it a plant that likes to sway in the wind, and good air cirtculation is absolutely essential as this strain is prone to airborne bacterial disease. The stems and branches are purplish throughout veg and flowe ...continued

I really like the Serious AK47. I have grown both Serious' AK47 and Nirvana's AK47. Nirvana's is nice but get the Serious if you can afford it. This plant is very bushy. I had excellent germ rates and 7 of 10 females. The plants grow very vigorously, and make nice yields of resiny buds. I did notice ...continued

This strain develops a sturdy skeletal system with thin but extremely strong branching, and for me had the tendency to bush out filling any empty space in the garden.

These plants were vegged for about 28 days, flowered at approximately 12 inches and they took 45 to 49 days to finish with an average finished height of 36 inches. Can easily go to 48 from seed but can be controlled using clones.

Strain description says finish time is approximately 47 Days 12/12 which seemed to be right in-line with this garden. The AK-47 in this garden were harvested after @ 46 to 49 Days of Flowering and could have gone to 55.

Every plant was extremely uniform with the Buds that are humongous and quite a pleasure to view. I found that while the AK-47 did produce an abundance of bud, the buds grew out a bit fluffy and "slightly" airy.

The AK-47 was a bit harsh-- "Extremely expansive in the lungs" to smoke but the taste and Overall High makes this a wonderful strain to grow and smoke.

IMO, The AK-47 is not a very good strain to use for hashmaking, reason being this strain has a VERY high calyx to leaf ratio leaving you with very little waste and or sugar leaf to use for this.

I give Serious Seeds AK-47:
7 for Potency
9 for Uniformity
9 for Stability
8 for Production
10 for Ease of Growing.

Overall this is an amazing strain that is well suited for the Indoor Gardener. This strains height can be easily controlled with pruning and or various stress and can be used in a SOG type garden. Also as shown in the attached pic "footlong" which was an experiment from clone-- pulled early and produced .75 ounces dry.

In a large Bush style grow, given enough space, achieving 4 to 6 ounces per plant is not uncommon. I have had superb results with what i have grown of the Serious seeds brand. Simon of Serious Seeds is a well established Breeder who has the ability to produce some of the world's finest and most uniform strains. He does exactly that. You can not go wrong using any of the excellent strains that Serious Seeds has to offer.
