Cannabissearch.com Buzz Rating: AK48 tastes like dank, skunk and citrus with a smooth and almosty hashy exhale. While it’s 65% indica, the high feels more like a 50/50 balance. Very dreamy, relaxing and euphorically cerebral.
Bred by Nirvana to be have strong growth traits and finish early, this bud was named because of the fact that it can flower for just 48 days in optimum conditions. Also, in a sea of green it often finishes in just 48 days. AK48 bears the favorable traits of both Ice (mother) and Jock Horror (father). The buds are medium-sized, dense and coated with a thick layer of trichromes.
A choice strain by growers of all skill levels, AK48 produces an average to above average yield of potent medication. The buds grow along the main branches, with a high calyx-to-leaf ratio. With ideal conditions, she will finish in 7 weeks, but sometimes takes up to 9 weeks. For optimum flavor, AK48 prefers to be cultivated indoors in organic soil and fed normal amounts of organic nutrients. She�s also great for the sea of green technique and should have 16 plants per square yard, making sure to prune the necessary branches away, leaving the tops.
This strain is great for daytime as well as nighttime use, however it is not generally recommended to treat insomnia, due to the cerebral stimulation it creates. Grab at least an eighth of this bud whenever you see it in your local dispensary, as it may not come around again for a while. Or better yet, grab a few clones and add it to your medical garden for an easy to cultivate, yet potent strain.
