For this strain review I tried out some AK-47 by Hexo, which is a pretty strong Hybrid strain. This one had 18% THC and 0.6% CBD, it’s main terpene is caryophyllene. Personally, I wouldn’t smoke this one on the regular, only because of the power of the punch that it packs…a little too heavy for me. But you know, weed is kinda like wine, different strains for different…brains? (I know, not the best, I tried.) Below, you can see a more detailed breakdown.
Packaging Details: This was packaged on 11/03/19, it was purchased and reviewed on 12/26/20, 53 days total after being packaged.
Pricing Details: This 3.5 gram container was purchased for $32.30 CAD.
The buds on this AK-47 look decent, however I did find that there was a whole lot of small popcorn nugs in the 3.5 gram container that I bought. I understand that it may vary from package to package, but I expect the same quality with every purchase I make. Speaking of quality, it makes absolutely no sense to me as to why the buds are so dry coming from a brand new, sealed container, all of this dropped the score for me. What kept it above average are the colors and crystals, you can see the layer of white covering the darkish green buds, mixed in with a bunch of orange hairs. The terpenes are strong on this one as well, you can see many purple spots from the caryophyllene. Again though, they could’ve done a better job with the trimming.
The smell of this strain is very interesting, initially I would describe it as kind of citrusy and woody, then when you break up a nug and really take a big wihf, you get a nice floral piney smell. I also found that it was quite subtle, until I started to break up the weed, once the nugs were bid up, the smell became very intense!
This was my favorite part of this whole AK-47 strain review. When I took my initial puffs I instantly tasted something sweet and citrusy, the after taste was a little spicy but still sweet at the same time. I found that this is a very flavorful strain, the taste definitely stood out. It’s also very smooth, there was absolutely no itching in the throat while smoking this. I would actually like to try to vape this strain because I find that you get more of the taste through vaping, and it would really come out on this one.
The high on this one wasn’t my favorite, but this part is pretty subjective. It’s a very strong high, and although I had some energy and I wasn’t passing out, I didn’t feel like actually doing much. I wouldn’t call it the most “functional weed”. The high came in a wave, as in you think you’re high right away, then the actual high kicks in, and you really slow down. The munchies were very present, and it was mostly a sweet craving…although my sweet tooth is out of control and maybe it’s just me. I felt the Sativa and Indica in this strain, but I find it was a little too heavy for me. There was a very strong downer after about an hour, it pretty much knocked me out once the high was gone.
In conclusion, I would not suggest this strain for beginners at all, but again all of this is opinionated. I find that it may be too strong of a high for somebody that’s not used to smoking. I I definitely would not suggest this to anyone trying to do something productive, however I find that it may help with creativity. If you have trouble crashing, I think this strain would help knock you out, but I wouldn’t recommend this if you have high anxiety, as it may actually do the reverse effect and increase it.
