God’s AK-47 or God’s AK is a marvelous 50/50 hybrid strain with an impressive family tree. Experienced breeders from Jordan of the Islands crossed their God Bud with Serious Seeds’ AK-47 to create this heavenly bud. The combination of the resinous, sticky THC and fluffy, cloud-like nugs make this a rather rare and unique strain.
With THC levels weighing 15-20% roughly, God’s AK-47 is quite beginner friendly, yet it packs enough of a punch for experienced smokers to be able to enjoy. While the name of the strain may be indicative of it being very deadly or overwhelmingly potent, the effects are vivid, yet controllable and comfortable. The beginning of the high is purely psychedelic and hallucinogenic, inducing users into cerebral and uplifting state. The bouncy, heady buzz then transitions or offsets into a calm and relaxing body high. Medicinally, God’s AK-47 can be used as a multi-purpose strain. The euphoric and happy nature of this strain make it excellent for dealing with stress, or as a mid-day mood booster. The mellow body high associated with this strain is sufficient enough to melt away general body pains and aches, without being overwhelmingly sedative or couch-locking.
These beautiful, resinous buds are truly impressive. The amount of crystals covering the buds generate a thick, glue-like layer that will immediately stick to your fingers. Fluorescent green flowers are contrasted by slightly darker pine green leaves and little rich orange hairs. The aroma of God’s AK-47 is very kush-like – consisting of a woody, earthy nose and slightly sweet undertones. This strain is heavy-hitting on the inhale and very tastefully smooth on the exhale. The flavour profile of God’s AK-47 is known to be mild and similar to other kush strains but what differentiates it from other kushes is the delectably sweet and spicy kick.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

In such a growing and experimental industry, science has made it possible for the creation of new strains to meet the unique demand of consumers. Hybrid strains are created when geneticists or growers cross-breed pure indica strains, sativa strains or other hybrid strains together to create a new plant, and they can lean towards either being indica dominant, sativa dominant or an equal 50/50 balance of its parentage. What is different about hybrid plants compared to indicas or sativas is that the range of effects are endless. Hybrid strains are very complex and can be bred to contain both sativa and indica characteristics, making them great for those looking for the best of both worlds, in a sense.
