AK-48 as Nirvana now call it was a cinch to grow - a hungry grower which was fast and sturdy. I got 1/2oz from each plant which was in a 1.5 ltr pot (lots of bud for a pot that size). It had a low leaf-to-calyx ratio and took no time to trim. A good commercial and head stasher!

Didn't taste very good compared to Northern Lights but potency damn, it's definitely the most potent buds I have grown or smoked. Let it veg for 6-7-8 weeks it gets way more potent, I even got a contact high from it which I never do when I wasn't smoking. It is so potent it makes you slobber and fee ...continued

The plants grew very fast, with dark green leaves and a more Indica shape. This strain produces much resin, trim leaves are very resinous, so its a very good bubblehash producer. The yield is also very good, and manicuring takes little time. I mixed cow and chicken manure, with worm castings to the ...continued

8 seeds planted all germinated, I ended up with 2 females; one sativa and one indica phenotype. They were vegged for 7 weeks in soil using organic ferts.

Ak48 from Nirvana Seeds was a pleasure to grow, very simple and it seemed if I ever did mess up with over-feeding or missed a watering because I was away the plant always bounced back with nothing to it.

I got this strain because I wanted the "one hit wonder". I knew it wouldn't get me stoned after just a hit, but I want to see the strain that can do that to me.


I germed 4 seeds, and they all sprouted.
They grew uniformly and fast, they were a bit different tho, some were more sativa t

After a 100% germination I started preparing myself for the worst - lots of good pot!

Grew very well during veg, got 4/6 female which showed sex in the 3rd week of veg. Only problem I had was a magnesium deficiency which was corrected with Epsom Salts. These plants are very hungry growers through

Hey people, this grow took place one year ago, its just that I never had the guts to do a real report, well there it goes.

When I got these seeds from a friend they were still called AK-47, I believe it is the same strain as today, or at least similar.

Anyways, we grew them in the bush formats

All seeds cracked in 24 hours, very fast germ rate, popped through the soil after 1 day, seedlings spent 2 weeks under fluoros, then under the 400w MH.

I vegged them for 10 weeks total, tying them down so all the side branches become like the main stem for more yield, as I haven't got much height in the grow room.

They were a quite fussy at first with the nutes, so in the first 2 weeks of your grow, make sure you only feed them just less than half strength nutes, but after that, you can start building it up gradually, feeding them stronger doses each feed until full strength.

Once triggered, these things just simply can't get enough feed, I fed them full strength all the way in flower, and they showed no signs of stress or over-fert at all, but that feed goes somewhere.....trust me!

I've never seen or grown a strain that piles on the weight as quick as this stuff, but it's mostly in early to mid flower, at about 17 - 36 days, that's when all the weight gets put on, after that, it's simply a case of maturing, the growth slows rapidly at about 40 days, and just gets so frosty!

This strain can either be chopped at 50 days like a couple of mine, or it can be left for 65 days if you want, I have 1 left now at 61 days as I type, which will be going another week or so I'd say. My 2 plants were chopped at 52 days, but they seemed to have matured a lot more than the one I still have growing.

Okay, now for the best part.... the HIGH!

I'll just begin by saying a note of CAUTION! This stuff is strong shit, has a different stone nearly every time I smoke it, very strange but NICE.

The first joint I had was a surprise, I smoked the joint watching TV, finished it, and thought shit man that was a waste of time growing that stuff, 5 - 10 minutes later... WACK!

It's a creeper, no doubt about that, I got rushes down my back, like on speed, heart races big time, and the high itself was very intense for the first 10 minutes or so then calmed down, spaces you out for a couple of hours, but now every time I have a joint, the high is different, but still fuckin good.

Now, it's a case of smoking my first joint, getting a nice heady high, then the second REALLY does it for me, it really blitzes you, at first, a heady high, then the couchlock stone kicks in and puts you to sleep, a nice balance, a very enjoyable experience, but also trippy if you smoke a lot, and at one point I almost panicked for a split second. I will be growing this strain again and again!

After growing this strain again, I have come to realize that in the first (above) grow of AK-48, I had the strong pheno, as after the 2nd time I grew it the smoke wasn't as powerful as the first, but still very nice, but if you get that pheno your in for a good smoke, and the AK-48 is also very consistant in smell, taste, and structure, overall a brilliant strain, easy to grow and a persaonal favourite of mine, and I am currently on my 3rd AK-48 grow, and many more after that!

I germinated 10/10 and lucky enough got 9 females an 1 male all noticed in veg by checking pre-flowers. Gave some away to get sacrificed a few so I could get a few cuttings so I only put 5 into Flower.

Very quick growing plants. Germinated 5 seeds, 1 didnt crack, 2m and 2f. The two females were similar looking plants. There wasnt a whole lot of stretch. Despite this being an indica they will get huge if you want them to. Ive got clones going in a SOG right now and they are looking great.

From seed:
I have kept the seeds in a fridge for about 2 years, and almost 100% germination.
They turn out great when planted, and grow long sativa like leaves, just make sure to put the light close so they dont stretch really bad at first.
These plants get really tall, and uniform growth

Seeded in soil aug. 12. Seeds sprouted after 2-3 days. During the vegging time she had mixed light regime: outdoor during daytime, indoor with a 250 HPS during nightime. Translpanted in 4 liters pots after 2 weeks. 2 plant died because of my lack of skill (it was my first grow).
Vegged until sept.
