AK48 Strain Review – Everything You Need to Know & More!

AK48 is Nirvana Seeds’ version of Serious Seeds’ AK-47 strain. It is a fantastic strain with Sativa leanings. It is defined as a Sativa-dominant hybrid and is recommended for daytime use. It is what is known as a landrace cross; it is actually a cross between four different landrace strains. These landrace crosses have a few different characteristics that make them so famous. They also normally retain a fruity, smooth smoke. The final thing that they usually inherit, and AK48 is no different, is their easiness to grow.

If you want to try the nice taste of the AK48 strain, then the Walnut Wood and Glass bong by Marley Naturals is the perfect choice!

The simple and elegant design of this bong will fit perfectly in your hands, so you can enjoy your favorite strains.

Before we get started, a quick Nirvana seeds review

Nirvana Seeds are one of the most popular seedbanks from Amsterdam. They first started up in the 1980s and have slowly earned a reputation as being some of the best in the business. Their mark is a stamp of approval, and you can buy with confidence from their website. This is the main advantage of buying from Dutch seedbanks: their seeds are available online, and they’re trusted – what you buy is what you’ll get.

AK48: Indica or Sativa?

AK48 is a Sativa-dominant hybrid. It’s about a 90:10 split, meaning that the indica effects are very subtle and will only be felt if you smoke a large amount. You can expect a large boost of energy after smoking this strain. It’s not massively strong, but it’s also not considered to be weak or mild. It’s definitely a morning strain, as it will keep you awake if you smoke it at night. The buds are exactly what you’d expect from a Sativa strain, and it’s a great medicinal strain for certain tough-to-treat medical conditions.

AK48 strain genetics

AK48 was created by Nirvana seeds. They took four of the most well-known Sativa landrace strains and smashed them together. The end result is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that packs a punch. The strains that were initially bred to create AK48 are:

  • Colombian Gold
  • Thai
  • Mexican
  • Afghani

These are the four parents of the two strains that went into AK48; Ice and Jock Horror.

AK48 THC percentage

The average Sativa or Sativa-dominant hybrid has around 13% THC content. AK48 is much stronger than that, with the average phenotype coming in at about 18%. Stronger AK48 phenotypes can test into the ’20s. As such, you may feel a little overwhelmed if you’re a relatively new smoker. If so, you can follow this guide on how to feel less high:

  • Have a cold shower
  • Have a hot cup of coffee
  • Once you’re out of the shower to go to a dark room on your own
  • If you feel up to it lie down and breathe
  • If you get room spin from lying down, go and get some fresh air
  • After this, you should feel a lot better
  • Also, pro tip: remember that it’s all in your head!

AK48 price

This strain’s seeds are available online. Because of this AK48 is reasonably cheap, as the supply is higher, especially compared to those strains that are either clone-only or those whose seeds are difficult to come by. For a gram of AK48 in an Amsterdam coffee shop, you’re looking at spending around $10. In a North American dispensary the price should be about the same.

AK48 taste

Certain strains should be fully appreciated. AK48 is a landrace cross, and although it’s not as tasty as some dankenstein strains, it definitely has its own unique and flavourful taste. Therefore, you should definitely try to enjoy this strain inside a flower vaporizer . This is because there’s no combustion of plant matter, and there’s no adulteration from paper. This means that you can enjoy the strain as it was supposed to be enjoyed. You will feel the THC crystals hit the back of your throat when you take on a vaporizer, and this makes it well worth the high price of the vape. This is especially true if you grind up the weed first. The taste profile of AK48 is:

  • Earthy
  • Tropical
  • Flowery

Do you want to try the AK48 strain? Then you need to get ready, and the Crafty Vaporizer by Storz & Bickel is a good way to do that!

AK48 oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc.

If you do use a flower vaporizer, then another massive advantage is the fact that you can simply mix your already vaped marijuana with a fat or an oil and you’ve got yourself an incredibly potent mix to make edibles with. If you decide to make your own edibles from scratch, then you must remember to decarboxylate your weed. Without doing this first, you’re missing out on a hell of a lot of potencies. In fact, if you don’t decarboxylate your weed, it’s likely that the edibles won’t even work.

AK48 is a great choice for making concentrates because it has a decent THC percentage and it also has a very fruity, flowery flavor. This, as well as the trichomes that cover it, are what a lot of concentrate creators look for in a strain. Furthermore, because the seeds are available online from the original breeder, they can easily get their hands on the strain. However, if you want to make Butane Hash Oil yourself, please be warned: this can be exceedingly dangerous if you don’t know precisely how to do it.

If you decided to make your own concentrate or just to get some and enjoy them, you will need an oil bubbler.

The Blaze Glass concentrate oil bubbler with Showerhead diffuser will help you to get a nice high!
