AK 47 Strain – The Creative Strain of Your Dreams


The AK 47 strain is legendary. While its name suggests AK-47 is a wild ride, imagine it instead as a nerf gun with chillax pills as ammunition. That’s right — the AK-47 strain is a mellow, relaxing friend that charms you with delicious flavors while engaging your mind. Perfect for creative pursuits and social gatherings, AK-47 mixes sour, earthy, and sweet tastes uniquely.

This strain leans sativa and is a cross of Thai, Afghani, Mexican, and Colombian vehicles that is as complex as it is singular.

You can compare it with Golden Back Gorilla’s limonene content, but make no mistake — AK-47 has a flavor all its own.
