AK-47 Strain Review (Hexo)

For this strain review, I tried out some AK-47 by  Hexo, which is a strong Hybrid strain. This came in with 18% THC and an inconsiderable amount of CBD; its main terpene is caryophyllene. Personally, I wouldn’t smoke this one on the regular, only because the power of the punch that it packs is 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.

Terpenes: Caryophyllene, myrcene, humulene, pinene, nerolidol

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.

Appearance: 1/5

Zero bag appeal here; I found 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. The trimming job is pretty bad as well.

Aroma: 2/5

There wasn’t much happening when sticking my nose inside a container. Initially, I would describe it as slightly citrusy and woody; then, when you break up a nug, you get a floral piney smell. All these scents were quite subtle until the weed was milled, then it got slightly stronger. The terpenes were struggling here.

Flavor: 2.5/5

This was my favorite part of this whole AK-47 strain review, although I gave it an average score. It was a citrusy and woodsy flavor with hints of spice left on the plate on the exhale, but all this was quite muted. The smoke was pretty smooth, so there’s that.

Effects: 2/5

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.

Overall: 2/5

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 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.
