Grow Notes:

The plants grew very fast, with dark green leaves and a more Indica shape. This strain produces much resin, trim leaves are very resinous, so it’s a very good bubblehash producer. The yield is also very good, and manicuring takes little time. I mixed cow and chicken manure, with worm castings to the soil, and never fed again, plants were very healthy during all their lives. I grew outdoors with full sunlight. plants where small because of my latitude (23 degrees south), so they grew for like 25 days and flowered. I only grew 2 plants of this strain, one had a small pot and became 1/4 of the size of the other plant. I observed 2 different phenos, and called them Silver (small plant) and Pine (big plant)

Pine pheno: Wide leaves, dark green, heavy yielder. At harvest the smell was piney (never heard of pine smell in AK, but mine had). After a week curing the smell is becoming more like citrus. The taste is pretty much the same as the smell. It’s not that 1 hit wonder, but it’s potent. No couch-lock effects (or very little), Makes you think in lots of stuff, but allows to concentrate when needed. the main effect lasts like 1 - 1,5 hour, then it lows and the body effects become more evident, you can even sleep if you don’t keep moving.

Silver pheno: The plant was very small due to pot size, had more sativa-like leaves, lighter green, lower yield. the smell is fruitier on this one. the buds had a more silver appearance because of the resin, even when dry this pheno looks more crystal. the high is also more heady and active. I would keep this pheno.

The AK-48 is a very beautiful plant, that grows fast and easily, and has lots of resin. I expected a little more on the high of this plant, but I still recommend it to everyone. It was a pleasure to grow, and I'll surely do it again.
