AK-48 may be close in name to the highly prized AK-47, but the similarities are mostly name-deep. These strains descend from different parents, different breeders, and different DNA. AK-47 is a sativa-dominant hybrid. AK-48, on the other hand, is indica-heavy (sativa/indica ratio of roughly 35:65), though some reports claim it leans more toward its sativa genes. AK-47 and AK-48 do share one thing: They’re both known to be very potent, with top THC levels of roughly 20% in each case. AK-48 has CBD levels of less than 1%, meanwhile, so it isn’t the best choice for patients with seizure disorders. AK-48 is the offspring of Jock Horror and Ice, and its genes deliver a calming body buzz and clear-headed cerebral effects. Use this strain to treat anxiety, depression, lack of appetite, and chronic pain. Expect limited side effects, with dry mouth being the most common; dry eyes, paranoia, and headaches are also reported. This strain tastes and smells like a sweet, tropical blend blueberries, mangos, and pineapples. The bud is a mix of light and dark green with light brown strands and a silvery dusting of trichomes.
