  • Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: AK48 tastes like dank, skunk and citrus with a smooth and almosty hashy exhale. While it's 65% indica, the high feels more like a 50/50 balance. Very dreamy, relaxing and euphorically cerebral.

    Bred by Nirvana to be have strong growth traits and finish early, this bud was named because of the fact that it can flower for just 48 days in optimum conditions. Also, in a sea of green it often finishes in just 48 days. AK48 bears the favorable traits of both Ice (mother) and Jock Horror (father). The buds are medium-sized, dense and coated with a thick layer of trichromes.

    A choice strain by growers of all skill levels, AK48 produces an average to above average yield of potent medication. The buds grow along the main branches, with a high calyx-to-leaf ratio. With ideal conditions, she will finish in 7 weeks, but sometimes takes up to 9 weeks. For optimum flavor, AK48 prefers to be cultivated indoors in organic soil and fed normal amounts of organic nutrients. She’s also great for the sea of green technique and should have 16 plants per square yard, making sure to prune the necessary branches away, leaving the tops.

    This strain is great for daytime as well as nighttime use, however it is not generally recommended to treat insomnia, due to the cerebral stimulation it creates. Grab at least an eighth of this bud whenever you see it in your local dispensary, as it may not come around again for a while. Or better yet, grab a few clones and add it to your medical garden for an easy to cultivate, yet potent strain.

    Decent enough tweed, but I am a pure indica strain smoker, but every now and then I'll have a lil sativa and this is a decent strain.

    AK48 is my favorite so far. Very quick hitting heady buzz. This is my daytime strain. Very easy to grow, rock hard nugs. Smells very unique, very nice, but not very pungeant. Great for stealth grows. Can be very good yeilding if it's many branches are handled well. Great bud for growers and smokers!

    I think everyone that says the high does not last long smoked something that was prematurely harvested. I let this plant run 10 to 11 weeks before I take it down and WOW what a difference it makes compared to bud harvested at 8 weeks. A+ smoke that will forever be in my stable. Fantastic fruity smell and taste. Keeps well. And tears your head off.

    Pretty good little hairy bud. I liked the looks of the red hairs, cool looking. And the effects were not disappointing at all. I liked how it hit me hard before bed and I was out for a good night's sleep.

    Grew this from Nirvana this summer. Great strain for pain and anxiety. Pretty strong smoke for beginners, had a friend green out on it. No tolerance build up after smoking it for a month. This is a crazy strain! Strong visuals, complex and creative thinking. Newbies be careful, you might overreact to the effects.

    This sweet little bud is great, but it isn't a very lasting high. Not to mention if you smoke joints this bud seems to burn up a lot faster than most. If you are in need of something to use right before bed this bud would be perfect.
