Some may wonder where AK-47 got its name from. The strain is named after the famous Russian Kalashnikov rifle, but not so much because it would be a “violent” strain. Its high, while very powerful is actually very balanced. The strain got this name since it can literally knock out some less experienced smokers with just one hit. That’s why Simon gave this strain the nickname “One Hit Wonder”.
AK-47 produces dark, very juicy and compact buds with an intense, spicy skunk-like aroma. You can smell hints of pine, sandalwood and some lighter citrus tones. Her smoke has a robust, strong and refreshing citrus flavor with some deeper skunk undertones.
The effect of AK-47, although very powerful, is relaxing and mellow.
AK-47 delivers a steady and long-lasting cerebral buzz that keeps you mentally alert and engaged in creative or social activities. Its high is nicely balanced and can relax and energize at the same time.
This is a strain that can help relieve anxiety, depression, chronic pains and stress. They don’t call it a “one hit wonder” without a reason. Its high can be very powerful so that less experienced users should take it slow when they meet AK-47 for their first time.
