Gas Canna is always looking for a new and exciting strain to add to our top-shelf collection of hemp flower. Right now, we’re focusing on AK-47, one of the most sought-after sativa strains in the world. If you’re looking for a sativa that gives you a powerful punch without the heavy lethargy, then you’re gonna want to get your hands on these beautiful, fragrant buds.
Let’s Get Right to the Basics Here
AK-47, also known as "AK", is a sativa-dominant hybrid rather than a true sativa. Meaning, it has both sativa and indica strains in its lineage. Its 65% sativa, 35% indica profile comes from a cross between Colombian, Mexican, Thai, and Afghai strains, and any serious connoisseur will tell you that this explains a lot about the strain’s potency. In nature, AK-47 offers a THC level of somewhere between 13%-20%, while offering a CBD level that’s somewhere below 1%, making it not the best choice if you want a strain that’s high in cannabidiol. However, AK-47 is an awesome choice if you enjoy all sorts of THC-based compounds.
AK-47 is somewhat easy to recognize since its buds have a distinctively minty green color to them, covered in orange hairs that look almost golden at first. The trichomes coat the buds in a frosty amber color, adding to the sunset-like shades that are extremely appealing to the eye. The buds are shaped like spades, and they’re known to be quite large compared to the average.
Flavor & Aroma
AK-47 has an herbal, earthy aroma that has a decent kick of skunkiness, with subtle notes of aromatic florals and warm spices. The actual flavor is a bit heavier on the floral notes and the spices, which makes for a tasty terpene profile that’s grounded in nature, and never too sweet. Its flavor is actually quite delicate, which is not necessarily indicative of the high itself that’s soon to come.
How Those Effects Feel
AK-47 is a strain known for its uplifting effects which instantly put you into a giddy state of mind, which makes it a great choice for when your mood isn’t all that great. It can instantly turn a frown upside-down, and make you forget about your cares and worries while you live in the moment, feeling completely present and at ease. At the same time, the strain offers a nice, warm sensation throughout the muscles that makes your body feel less tense, without causing you to feel lazy like the more indica-dominant hybrids out there. This is particularly great if you’re dealing with physical discomfort or muscle tension, since it has the ability to make the muscles feel like they’re melting no matter how tight they’ve been all day.
Setting Proper Expectations
AK-47 mainly gets its name from its fast-acting and heavy-hitting nature. Basically, as soon as you’re done puffing away on these buds, you will feel the cerebral effects kick in, causing a tingling sensation that lifts you higher and higher. But, simultaneously, you won’t feel hazy or lose your focus. In fact, it’s a great social strain since you can maintain a great conversation even at the high’s peak.
This is a strain that can give you a case of the giggles, so don’t be surprised if you burst into fits of laughter, especially if you’re partaking with some good friends. Let’s also not forget, the body high starts to creep in, making you feel at ease all over without any of the heaviness you’re trying to avoid. Essentially, AK-47 is a really good daytime strain that can deliver buzzing, warm effects for several hours or so.
The Delta-8 Flower Power Behind Gas Canna’s AK-47
Gas Canna offers a premium AK-47 Delta-8 Flower in airtight, resealable 3.5 gram jars. This flower comes from local farms, and, is grown organically to keep pesticides away from the plant material. AK-47 Delta-8 Flower is also fresh, since we know how important it is that the flower and potency are fully intact before those precious compounds start to degrade.
Being delta-8 flower, these buds are infused with pure delta-8 THC distillate which has been fully third-party lab-tested. Other than that, there are zero added ingredients to interfere with this sublimely potent product. Rather than using CBD flower, we utilize CBG flower, which is picked prior to maturing, before the CBG (cannabigerol) converts into CBD (cannabidiol) at peak maturity. CBG is a phenomenally desirable cannabinoid that naturally occurs in hemp, and is known for its mood-boosting, discomfort-relieving nature.
