AK-47 – March 2016 strain of the month


Welcome to my first strain of the month post! πŸ™‚

I have spent the last few months sampling around 20 different indica, sativa and hybrid strains and for March this year, I have settled on the wonderful AK-47 hybrid.

After checking it out on Leafly here, I decided to give it a try and was not disappointed!

Overall it has been a fantastic smoke for both daytime and nighttime and tastes very earthy with some sweetness in there too πŸ™‚ I was most surprised at how many amazing ideas I was having whilst smoking it too. Unlike other strains that only made me feel like I had great ideas (which later turned out not to be), I found myself executing on these ideas and contributing more to my team at work.

Lovely nugs covered in trichomes as you can see :)

The musical side of things was incredible too. I found that I could immerse myself deeply into a piece and found riffs and licks coming to me really easily πŸ™‚ Listening to finished tracks afterwards was very rewarding too and kicking back with a light smoke and Spotify was a real treat.

It’s also a great strain for working out to and I could easily cycle, swim and do bodyweight exercises (press ups etc) after smoking which is awesome! (As always, I would always avoid driving or handling any kind of dangerous machinery after smoking though).


This was spot on! I felt all of the above and was a fantastic smoke all round πŸ™‚

Helps medicinally for the following:Β 

Great for insomnia and stress in my case πŸ™‚

Side effects to be aware of:Β

Personally, I got a bit of a dry mouth but that was it πŸ™‚


As you can see, this strain is sativa dominant with a nice little portion of indica for that mellow body high πŸ™‚

So there you have it! AK-47 is a fantastically well rounded strain that is perfect for people wanting to get stuff done, staying fit and getting creative πŸ™‚

What have your experiences been like with this strain? I’d love to hear your thoughts and hear any suggestions you might have on other hybrids too!
