AK-48, not to be confused with AK-47, is an Indica-dominant strain which, strangely, provides Sativa-like mental effects, along with a totally unique smell.
No, that isn’t a typo: AK-48 is an Indica-dominant strain that’s completely different from AK-47. Bred from parents Jock Horror and Ice, this marijuana has very unusual properties, being that it acts kind of like a Sativa, despite its genetics. It delivers a head-clearing, euphoric, borderline psychedelic high with a slight bodily tingle. Its smell is delicious and totally unique.
In some ways, AK-48 is a really confusing weed. First of all, it’s a completely different strain from the similarly-named AK-47 in every way. Secondly, it’s an Indica-dominant Hybrid whose effects are primarily cerebral. Ah, the mysteries of cannabis. Regardless, it’s an enjoyable strain, descended from Ice and Jock Horror, and it’s reasonably powerful at 17-20% THC.
Upon consuming this marijuana, enthusiasts will notice a powerful, focused headrush, combined with notably strong visual effects. It’s a provocative mental state, and it’s motivating more than it is tranquilizing. This weed makes people want to get up and do things.
Although it’s relaxing, and to some extent euphoric, it’s definitely not tranquilizing. Eventually, though, the Indica genetics make themselves known in the form of a pretty significant appetite boost. This is a marijuana made for exploring the world and eating some of its contents.
Vape cartridges of this strain are currently unavailable, but shatter can be bought from various retailers.
Traits of AK-48 and AK-48 Seeds
This isn’t the prettiest weed ever. It’s got big, chunky, dusty green buds with a significant coating of rusty pistils. However, its smell is really something. Enthusiasts can’t really decide exactly what it smells like: some are reminded of pineapple, others of tropical fruit, others of pine, and still others of clean laundry.
It’s a fruity, astringent, sour, refreshing smell that adds a complex twist to the normal skunky Indica savouriness. The smoke itself continues the tropical fruit flavor, and is very smooth.
