This particular variant is a blend of genetics from the Cannabis rederalis subspecies and the one and only AK47. It was originally propagated by Phoenix Cannabis Seeds.
AK47 is world-famous for its outstanding lineage that is a combination of no less than four landraces: Colombian, Afghani, Thai, and Mexican. Although classified as a Sativa, its effects are mellower than expected. In addition, it is a small, compact plant that does not require too much skill and experience from its growers. It passed on those stellar traits to AK27 Express.
In fact, Phoenix successfully bred this new strain with several enhanced features. As an autoflower, it remains a short height throughout its life so that it can be managed easily in any available space. It does not need a change in the light schedule to trigger flowering because it decides when to produce buds on its own according to its internal clock. Seed to harvest takes 9 to 10 weeks only.
That said, AK27 Express retains its parent’s high THC level. Although it is a smaller plant with a brief life span, it can still yield an abundance of dense buds containing 15 to 20% THC. That means this variant is just as capable as its forebear in delivering energy, euphoria, and relaxation. Combined with a sweet and earthy aroma and flavor, it is no wonder that its blossoms are extremely popular among medical marijuana consumers as well.
This strain is suitable for growers of all levels. It can flourish in a variety of settings with minimal care. However, note that it emits a potent, distinctive scent; therefore, some precautions must be taken so that it does not attract unwanted attention.
