AK-48 is a potent Indica-dominant hybrid cannabis strain. Despite its name’s closeness to another well-known strain, AK-47, AK-48 is a quite different flower. Nirvana Seeds, a cannabis company based in the Netherlands with roots in the cannabis community dating back nearly four decades, was the first to breed this strain. This potent strain is a cross between Jock Horror and Ice, two strains which were carefully crafted by Nirvana Seeds.

Since it’s first introduction in the 1990s, AK cannabis genetics have been increasingly popular among both marijuana growers and users. Nirvana’s version of this plant, the AK-48, is known for it’s potency and an extremely quick finishing time. While it’ll usually be ready for harvest around 9 weeks, when grown in optimal conditions, this plant can finish in as little as 48 days.
Lab tests clock its potency at more than 20% THC, according to Amsterdam Seed Center.
