What makes AK-47 an all-time favourite among those who like to grow cannabis, is that she is also one of the easiest and quickest-growing among sativa-dominant strains.

The breeders used Colombian (sativa), Mexican (sativa), Thai (sativa) and Afghani to make AK-47. The result was a sativa-dominant hybrid, with 65% sativa and 35% indica heritage. Back then, the THC content of AK-47 was considered quite high with 13–20%, although compared to more recent strains this is now considered average. Her CBD and CBN percentage sits at a decent 1.5%.
