This strain is easy to grow, finishes flowering quickly, and packs a powerful, Sativa dominant hybrid punch. There is energy and creativity in the high that has a mental brightness, and the physical effects are pure heaven. Pain, tension and anxiety melt away, allowing you to fully enjoy the crisp cerebral stimulation.In the wake of AK47’s fame, other similar strains came on the market, including AK49, AK48, Pure AK and a variety of auto-flowering varieties and crosses. While each strain has its unique qualities and often distinct genetic background, all the AK strains share several characteristics: they are beginner friendly in the grow room, they have powerful, instantaneous and medicinally useful hits and they stink to high heaven.History of AK AK47 is the first and most famous of the AK strains. Unlike many of the famous lines out there, including White Widow, Northern Lights and Skunk, the history of AK47 is quite straightforward.Simon, the master breeder of Serious Seeds, tested hundreds of different hybrid crosses in the hopes of creating his ideal Sativa/Indica combination. After years of work and experimentation, he came upon the first AK47. While Serious won’t reveal the exact parentage of this potent strain, they do acknowledge that it is bred from Columbian, Mexican, Thai and Afghani lines, and that it is a Sativa dominant strain. AK47 became an immediate classic, winning over 19 awards since its release in the 90’s.After its release, Simon continued to work on AK47, using the same lines it already carried. Some people claim that this led to the modern AK47, which has a higher percentage of Indica genes than the original. However, Serious Seeds still lists it as a Sativa dominant hybrid.The name AK47 was given to this strain to describe the speed with which it grows and the instantaneous, powerful hit it gives when smoked. Nirvana chose a similar title for their AK48, a decision which has led to some confusion. AK48 is not directly related to or derived from AK47. It is a cross between Jock Horror (Northern Lights x Skunk x Haze) and Nirvana’s Ice (Afghan x Shiva x Northern Lights x Skunk). Because it has so many of the big names in cannabis breeding as part of its pedigree, it is almost certainly related to AK47. They are second cousins, not sisters. While AK48 has some of the fast finishing and easy to grow qualities of AK47, it has a more dominant Indica effect when smoked.The AK “family” also includes AK49 from Vision Seeds. Like Serious, Vision chooses not to release the names of the parent plants, preferring to list the lines instead. And just like AK47, AK49 comes from a blend of Columbian, Mexican, Thai and Afghan strains, resulting in a 65:35 Sativa:Indica hybrid. AK49 is similar to the original AK47 with its energetic and pain melting high and friendliness in the grow room, though it has yet to gain the fame of its counterpart from Serious Seeds.There have been many AK crosses and some very successful auto-flowering AK creations. As you can see, even the three most well-known AK strains are not directly related to each other, so there is quite a bit of genetic variation in their offspring as well. However, it is not inappropriate to group the AK strains together, as they share many of the same characteristics, especially in the grow room.Growing AK Strains All the AK strains are delightfully easy to grow. They thrive in any growing medium, though higher yields are often reported using hydro or growing outdoors. They tend to be forgiving of beginner’s errors with feeding or lights, and can do just fine if left to their own devices.Hydroponic AK If you choose to grow AK indoors, here are some hydro techniques that can help boost your yields:Drip Irrigation- a good choice to couple with stealth growing techniques because it is totally silent. Drip irrigation saves on nutrients and water, while supplying constant nutrition to your plants for maximum growth.Deep Water Culture (DWC)- this set-up submerges roots directly in aerated nutrient solution so they can utilize as much as they need. Be sure to pump enough oxygen into the water and your AK plants will thrive.Continuous Flow- one of the most common hydro set-ups, this system flushes nutrients in a continuous stream over the roots of plants, supplying them with a constant supply.Sea of Green (SOG)- this Dutch set-up uses topping and cropping techniques to create a uniform “sea” of kolas. It is especially useful for the more Indica phenotype AK strains like AK49 from Vision or Pure AK-X Line from Feminized Seeds.Screen of Green (SCOG)- another Dutch method that uses a screen to guide the growth of cannabis heads. It is great for growing in compact spaces and works well on the automatic AK strains like Blimburn AK Automatic, Royal AK Auto from Royal Queen or Lowlife Auto AK.Training AK While AK strains tend to thrive on their own, you may choose to use some of the gentler training techniques to boost yields or shape the plants to fit your growing space. Techniques that work nicely with AK strains include:Topping– A light trimming of the tops of your plants will turn a single kola into 2 or even 4 buds.Low Stress Training (LST)– LST coupled with topping will allow more light to reach your plants, boosting yields.Lollipopping– Trimming the base of your plants helps to focus their energy into the upper branches and future flower sites.AK Grow Lights The type of lighting you choose will also effect the growth of your plants. The best choice to maximize bud production and keep electricity costs low are full spectrum LED grow lights. They provide the proper wavelengths of light throughout the entire spectrum that cannabis plants need to thrive. HID lights work well too, but they use twice the electricity of full spectrum LED lights and create a lot of heat, which will require further ventilation and ample space to ensure your plants do not get burned. To learn more about growing indoors with full spectrum LED lights click here.There is some variation in size amongst the AK strains. The Sativa heavy AK47 can stretch during flowering, while the predominantly Indica AK48 stays short and squat. Despite the size differences, all the AK strains are fast finishes, flowering in 7-9 weeks on average. The exception here is AK49, whose heavy Sativa influence comes out in flowering. She needs a full 12 weeks for the best quality bud.The speed and quality of AK, coupled with her typically manageable size, make her a tempting choice for stealth growers. But a word of caution: these plants stink! They have a rich, musky, permeating smell that seems to ooze right through brick walls. If you are growing an AK indoors you need a good ventilation system and fresh carbon filters, and preferably cool and friendly neighbors. For outdoor grows make sure you select a site that is isolated and far from any human activity. Once flowering starts, AK loves to announce her presence to everyone for miles around with her tasty scent, a trait that is not helpful if you are trying to be discreet.If you do choose to use an AK strain for a stealth grow, consider confining her to a grow box. Here are some grow boxes that are well suited to an AK grow:1. SuperLocker 3.0 Grow BoxWith a tall, slim shape the SuperLocker easily goes unnoticed in your office or bedroom. It comes with a ready-to-go SuperPonics hydro set-up and full spectrum LED lights.2. Solaris Grow BoxThe Solaris grow box offers superior odor control. The stealthily silent ventilation system has powerful dual carbon filters that contain odors even as air is completely replenished every 11 minutes by the twin fans. This is a grow box set-up for soil.3. LED SuperFlower 3.0 Grow BoxWith two industrial strength carbon filters the Super Flower eliminates even the strong odors of AK strains. This grow box is equipped with a SuperPonics hydro system and full spectrum LED grow lights.Awards for AK Seeds AK47 ranks as one of the most awarded strains out there. She won recognition at the High Times Cannabis Cup in her first year on the market, and hasn’t slowed down since. Not only does AK-47 numerous High Times Cannabis Cup and High Life Cup Awards to its name, but it was also awarded High Times Magazine’s Strain of the Year Award in 2004, a full ten years after the strain was originally put on the market.2014: 1st High Life Cup (Hash Extracts), 2nd High Life Cup (Medicinal)2013: 3nd Cata Invernal Spain (Outdoor)2011: 3rd High Times Cannabis Cup (Hybrid), 2nd Copa de Grows de Catalunya (Indoor Bio)2010: 1st Treating Yourself Cup (Sativa2009: 2nd High Life Hemp Fair (Hash)2008: 1st Auckland Cannabis Cup (Hydro)2006: 3rd Cannabis Champions Cup (Resin)2005: 1st High Life Cup Barcelona (Resin), 1st Overall High Life Cup Barcelona, 3rd El Punto Cup Malaga (Indoor)2004: High Times Magazine Strain of the Year2003: 2nd High Times Cannabis Cup (Sativa Cup)1999: 2nd High Times Cannabis Cup (Sativa Cup)1996: 3rd High Times Cannabis Cup (Hydro)1994: 3rd High Times Cannabis Cup Overall, 2nd High Times Cannabis Cup (Hydro) To check out more award-winning strains look at our Best Cup Winners page.Classic AK Seed Strains AK47 was the first, a strain that prompted many seedbanks to try to match what became one of the most popular strains on the market.#1 Serious - AK47 SeedsBest For: Fast, Easy, Powerful Hit Serious Seeds’ AK47 has at least 18 awards to its name, most of them in the Sativa categories.

Outdoors she gets big for an Indica, stretching up to 2 meters and offering higher yields than her indoor counterparts. While yields are not as high as some of the other AK strains, 48 has hard, shiny buds that make trimming a breeze. Using a SOG set-up can boost yields indoors.The odor is powerful from early in flowering, so keep an eye on your carbon filters and ventilation system.
