AK – 47 Strain Review
AK-47 Strain Review
AK-47, also known as Cherry AK, takes its name not from the weapon, but from the rapid onset of its psychoactivity. “AK” may also stand for afghan Kush. Ironically, AK-47 rifles flooded Afghanistan during the soviet invasion in the 1970s, around the same time that the afghan parent of this variety was brought from its home country to Amsterdam.
AK-47 is a classic strain, very potent THC variety with a considerable terpene entourage. It is notorious for overwhelming inexperienced patients with its intense psychoactivity. Effective for pain, appetite support, and settling an upset stomach.
