Cherry AK-47 obviously comes from storied parents: It’s a phenotype of AK-47, a strain famed worldwide for its potency. The “Cherry” part of the name reflects its reddish-purple coloring and cherry aroma. THC levels can reach 16%, so Cherry AK-47 is moderately potent, while CBD concentration doesn’t exceed 1%. That means this isn’t a great choice for treating epilepsy. But it is helpful with lack of appetite, nausea, chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety. As a sativa-dominant hybrid (sativa/indica ratio of at least 70:30), Cherry AK-47delivers both body and cerebral effects. The sensation is strongly euphoric and psychoactive. In addition to cherry, this strain smells of cream, sandalwood, mint, and rotten fruit, while it tastes of skunk. The bud is almost silver with shiny trichomes, growing on top of strands of green, brown, and gray. Cherry AK-47 can cause red eyes and dry mouth, while dizziness and paranoia are somewhat less likely. The medical markets in California, Colorado, and Arizona sell this effective but not especially popular strain, which might be found in other states with legal marijuana. It’s less likely on the black market, but may circulate there as well.
