This article is presented by Advanced Nutrients, a global company raising the bud weights and reputations of cannabis growers since 1999.


Strain overview: Created in 1992 by Serious Seeds, AK-47 is a hybrid strain that delivers a powerful high. It has won several awards and has been used by breeders for the development of many other popular strains. It flowers quickly and offers high yields that radiate with sweet, pungent aromas.

Grow techniques: Grow indoors in either hydroponic or soil mediums to get the best results. A great strain for SOG (sea of green), create an even canopy by topping and pruning your plants while training them through trellising. Be aware that AK-47 is known to be especially pungent, so make sure your air filtration system is running properly and effectively. 

Flowering time: 7 to 8 weeks

Yield: High

Grow difficulty: Moderate

Climate: Mild and dry climate between 68 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

Indoor/outdoor: AK-47 does best indoors where humidity can be regulated. Its large dense buds are prone to bud rot, making outdoor gardens a challenging environment.

Feeding: Big buds mean lots of feeding during flowering. Keep phosphorus levels up and pay attention to bud development so you have time to flush your plants completely before harvest.
