AK-020 is a high-powered strain embodying a combination of the famous AK-47 (the strain; not the gun) and a touch of breeding brilliance from Amsterdam (area code 020). In AK-020, old genetics from the four corners of the earth merge to form a wonderfully balanced variant. The equilibrium is set at precisely 50% indica and 50% sativa genetics, with matching effects to prove the point. This is a modern revamp of the classic AK-47, rooted in primordial Mexican, Colombian, and Afghani strains. That makes AK-020 cannabis seeds connect into a single smashing strain. The resulting plants have the full impact of an automatic assault rifle – with decidedly more peaceful and relaxed effects.
AK-020 Cannabis Seeds
An Afghan indica, a Colombian sativa, and a Mexican strain walk into a bar… The varied parent strains of our AK-020 marijuana seeds make the story sound like a tacky joke. Still, the growing power and effects of this Amsterdam whopper are no laughing matter. With a broad background like this, AK-020 takes its rightful place as a grower and gourmet favourite.
Colombian landraces and pure Afghani genetics with a tasty Mexican kick inside: you know you have a special flavour and high in the making. Rest assured that AK-020 cannabis seeds absolutely tick both those boxes, which explains why she has been topping the menu charts of coffeeshops in Amsterdam and far beyond for years now.
AK-020 is a strain with layered effects, that really takes some concentrated analysis to fully appreciate. The plant’s indica aspects make themselves felt in a lazy, laid-back vibe that keeps glowing like embers. Just as you’re sure you are dealing with an indica-dominant hybrid, though, the sativa side of the coin presents itself. A chill smile automatically turns the corners of the mouth upwards while new energy and fresh ideas start bubbling to the surface.
So, when it comes to well-attuned effects, AK-020 is like the stable, wel-balanced cousin of AK-47. Yes, we are fully aware that we have been tinkering with legendary genetics here – but you’ll see our point once you see the results: all this classic needed was a tiny touch of Amsterdam!
From a medicinal point of view, the main forte of AK-020 is relaxation and stress relief. Anyone dealing with pressure will notice how the delicate mix of indica and sativa brings soothing calm to both the mind and the entire body. The positive, happy mood AK-020 inspires is also a tried recipe for off-days and troubled minds. General purpose pain relief is also an option, even though we have some specifically high-powered analgesic strains designed for (chronic) pain in our seeds range.
Flavour & Aroma
The taste of this multicultural hybrid strain is hard to capture in one or two words. That’s perfectly acceptable, however,considering wonderfully diverse genetic heritage that AK-020 cannabis seeds represent. There is a bit of spice to the bouquet, offset by sweet and supple tones, laced with a slightly acrid, danky skunk infusion. So how do you call something like that? Let’s just stick to AK-020 for now; at the very least, all of Amsterdam will know exactly what you’re talking about.
Rich scents and flavours such as these betray the presence of an extensive terpene profile. It encompasses the fiery influence of caryophyllene, but on top of that, this blend carries enough terpenes to produce a host of subtle entourage effects.
Growing AK-020 Cannabis Seeds
We will be the first to admit that AK-020 cannabis seeds are not our easiest growing genetics. In fact, that is exactly why we developed an AK-020 Autoflower variant for added convenience. Nonetheless, any grower with moderate experience will find this feminized, photoperiod strain perfectly manageable. Flowering times may be slightly longer than what you might expect from a 50/50 sativa-indica hybrid, but you’ll forget about that 100% once you see the huge buds that AK-020 unloads once harvest time comes in sight!
Growers far and wide have come to rely on this plant’s considerable yields. Anyone looking for a 50/50 indica and sativa hybrid with consistently smashing harvest results should give this lady a try. Indoors, 500g/m², with plants that are easy to control at 1.20 to 1.50 metre heights. Outside, specimens can grow anywhere up to 2 to 3 metres, but even then, this hit strain can produce up to 400 – 500g of sparkling colas per plant.
