This hybrid strain by Nirvana Seeds has the rare ability to flower in as little as 48 days, making it an excellent option for growers looking for a hands-off, easy grow. With AK 48, you can expect a creative, cerebral high and only a light body-buzz that won’t slow you down.
Heritage & Genetics: Nirvana Seed’s AK 48 boasts impressive genetics, with landraces Colombian Gold x Thai x Afghani in her lineage. Her THC content is high, around 17-20%, whereas her CBD content comes in at around 0.2-0.3%. AK48 is a 65/35 indica hybrid but embodies sativa characteristics more than indica in her yield and effect.
Flavor & Aroma: AK 48 delivers a skunky, strong fragrance that seasoned smokers will find pleasing. The typical indica earthiness takes a backseat to orangey, citrus notes that remind the smoker of sweet tropical fruit. In some rare phenotypes of AK 48, you will even taste a delicious cherry flavor.
Effect: The gradual, cerebral, but intense effect of AK 48 makes her an ideal strain for use during the day or night. You won’t feel the typical indica couch-lock, instead, expect only a slight body-high that won’t hinder your mobility. AK 48’s ability to open new creative channels cannot be overlooked.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Growing AK 48 indoors with a SOG method has proved the most successful. It is possible to grow this strain outdoors, but preferably in Mediterranean climates. This strain has been known to give off a strong fragrance, so growers should take this into consideration if they are keeping their grow on the low. Plants won’t be terribly tall, and buds will appear compact and frosty.
