How It Works Start My Diary Login Sign Up

This is a Fast Buds take on an all-time classic. The original AK-47 strain was created in Holland in 1992 by combining landrace genetics from Mexico, Columbia, Thailand, and Afganistan. This Sativa-dominant hybrid came to the US just in time for the Cali Medical Cannabis boom and quickly became a staple strain in dispensaries up and down the west coast thanks to its high THC levels.

This variety provides an uplifting, yet balanced experience. Lemon AK-47's Sativa energy is cushioned by the above mentioned relaxing effect of limonene and a touch of indica genetics. It's a fantastic daytime strain that will have you jumping off the couch with energy.

Lemon AK-47 seeds explode out of the ground, perhaps a bit too eagerly. During early growth, foliage can grow faster than the stem can support it. You'll want to provide a support stake in the first week to prevent it from collapsing under its own weight. If growing outdoor you'll also want to shield it from the elements. A massive rainstorm can destroy a plant during its fragile first week. Stem growth catches up in the second week, but the plants produced by these Lemon AK-47 seeds remain top-heavy throughout, creating massive, lemon-scented colas. Indoor growers will find that our Lemon AK-47 strain will soak up as much light as you can give it, and responds well to intense light cycles of 20 hours or more.

Growth finishes around week nine, and the result is a citrus-scented Christmas tree, giving you a Lemon AK-47 yield of 300 grams proving the value of its old-school genetics.

Official Fast Buds Lemon AK-47 Strain Review

Let me start off by saying that I chose this strain specifically because I was looking for a nice day time smoke to share with my friends. Well the breeders at Fast Buds nailed it perfectly.

Even though I typically prefer to smoke Indica and Indica dominant strains I was pleasantly surprised by the Lemon AK-47 Sativa dominant strain and this has left a lasting impression of how I perceive Sativa strains in general.

I was always under the impression that Cannabis Sativa produced large unruly plants along with a loose less dense bud structure than Indica strains. The hybridization of the Lemon AK-47 by Fast Buds put this misconception to rest.

About the grow. I was very impressed by how rapidly the seeds sprouted and developed in to quick growing plants in the matter of a few weeks throwing out the first pistils at day 17 and showing signs of wanting to start stretching. This caught me completely off guard I had crazy thoughts of them growing into monstrously large sativa type plants and becoming unmanageable. To my delight and probably because I chose to limit the pot size to 3 gallons, I was able to use some simple LST training to force them into a very uniform optimal shape and size which was perfect for my grow set up. Note: I’m sure if one desired larger plants 5-gallon pots would fit the bill they definitely showed the potential to grow larger if given the space for a larger root system. The stretching phase was perfect they produced nice sturdy stem length with good internode spacing allowing ample light to the bud sites. The plants handled nutrients very well with no signs of nutrient burn. I stopped short of using slightly less than ½ strength base nutrients during the high point of bloom. Buds showed an excellent response to adding in a PK 13/14 product during peak/late bloom. No signs of any major deficiencies were seen. Slight issue with light stress/burn on the upper leaves from high LED light intensity on one plant resulted in a lightening in the coloration of the leaves. These leaves were removed in the later stages of bloom. No ill effects on the buds they seemed to enjoy the intensity of light.

About the flower structure. All had a nice even shape with no excessive fox tailing even during the last few weeks of growth. I appeared to have two phenotype one with a nice dense heavy calyx to sugar leaf ratio with fewer fan leaves which was the first to be ready for harvesting. They also pull out some amazing purple coloration which extended into the buds. The other phenotype also had nice dense calyx growth but with many tiny trichome covered sugar leaves protruding and more fan leaves. This phenotype took about 5 days longer to ripen and seemed to hold on to the green coloration even after multiple flushing for over 2 weeks throwing out mostly yellowish/reddish type leaves.

About the harvest. Did I mention I how much I love Indica? Well taking that into account I chose to allow the top buds on the main cola ripen a bit more than my usual 5 % amber. Since this part of the plant seems ripens first, I let the trichomes go until I achieved a nice heavy 30% amber. I figured this would give me a nice pleasant and more balanced high more to my liking. Also, it would give me a nice variety of lower buds which were less amber to sample in the future.
The smell of the fresh buds while chopping was reminiscent of ripe citrus and permeated the house during harvest. Since I began slowly removing selected large fan leaves during the last few weeks of my grow harvesting went very smoothly. Basically, I like to do a wet trimming initially by removing as many large fan and accessible sugar leaves then I proceed to do a tight cut using curved bladed shears taking the tips off any tiny sugar leaves not completely covered in trichomes. I also take this time to remove any dried leaf tips or yellowing that made it up to the buds. I exclusively hand trim all my buds. I will typically perform a second tighter final trimming to properly manicure my buds after they have cured a couple of weeks and “hardened up” then back in the jar they will go to finish a nice long-term cure.

About the drying process. I typically hang my branches from regular wire clothes hangers I like to use a fine florist type wire to wrap under the stems of the last buds give it a twist then wrap it a few times over the hanger. One hanger seems to hold one plants worth of branches. These are placed in a dark closet with a small fan indirectly blowing near them. I typically dry for the first 2 days at 45% humidity 73 F to get the bulk of the moisture out of them. Then the humidity is raised to 55% to slow down the drying process. I will begin removing the smallest looser buds on the lower branches around day 5 and jar them up. Then over the next few days proceed to remove the medium size buds next then the largest ones last and put them in a Teflon coated baking pan with indirect air moving over them and turn them every day. I like to make sure the outside of the buds are dry enough so when they are in the pan, they don’t develop a flat side or shape. Drying time ranges from 7-10 days for the whole process.

About the curing process. The buds were loosely put into ½ gallon glass jars about ¾ full with an Inkbird digital hydrometer and it usually takes a few days to stabilize my humidity into the 62% to 63% range then I drop a Boveda 62% humidity pack into them and start my cure. The larger buds can be a bit rebellious and if I find the humidity to be 67% or higher, I will remove the buds from the jar for several hours then repeat the whole process if needed. If they land in the 66% or lower, I’ll remove the top off the jars a few/several hours a couple of times a day as needed.
From this point I will let them cure for three weeks then pull the best top cola bud and sample the smoke. I like to allow the buds to finish curing for a minimum of 6 weeks before I send my buds out for others to enjoy. During this time, I will open the tops of the jars to allow some fresh air in a few times a week then once a week toward the end. Yes of course I squirrel the top choice buds away for my head stash for a nice longer-term cure. This cure gives the buds time to improve the overall complexity of flavors, smells and smoothness that even the most discerning connoisseurs of fine cannabis can appreciate.

About the smoke. The moment of truth! After my last experience with dealing with Fast Buds Zkittlez jamming up my grinder I chose to forego the part of removing the sticky residue left inside the grinder which seemed like a waste in my opinion. I did it old school and used a tiny pair of sharp scissors to micro shave the bud into a form worthy of any true craftsman and proceeded to twist up a fatty.

But wait we need to compliment the moment with some music. I cued up the Chemical Brothers “Morning Lemon” song. Seemed appropriate since it’s been a while since I literally waked and baked.

I stoked up the joint and took three nice hits. Even with only a 3 week cure the smoke was incredibly smooth going in and coming out (Must have been the good flush). I say this because if I’m not coughing on the exhale that’s a great sign since I’m only a part time smoker “Lightweight”. The flavor was very familiar reminded me of smoking some old school Central and South American strains that were prevalent back around 1978 to 1982 strains like Acapulco Gold with a nice pleasant slightly citrus/earthy yet floral finish on your tongue type taste.

I sat back and let things take shape feeling the bass kick out of the speakers and vibrations of the music reverberate off me. Then it started hitting me like a small wave hitting the back of my head spilling over the top then dropping down my forehead across my face. Not crazy like someone dropped the curtain in front of me but a very pleasant relaxing even flowing cerebral type buzz flowing over the top then down into my upper body and arms. This intensified over the next 10- 20 minutes then peaked. It was just right in terms of the intensity for my taste. I was a bit on the quite side during this time just taking in some tunes amazed with the effects of the weed on my now enhanced hearing ability. At about 45 minutes I snapped out of my trance and was actually very functional mentally and physically. The high tapered off after about a good 2.5 hours with a nice body high must be the Indica effect but with no drowsy aftermath. I have yet to partake in a higher quantity of hits after learning my lesson with under estimating potency and test smoking taking 6 hits of Fast Buds Zkittlez for the first time on my last grow.

About my conclusion. I found Lemon AK-47 was exactly what I was looking for a great day time smoke that if smoked conservatively would allow me to be functional and social. I would definitely recommend this for social gatherings or a great anytime smoke it will make you a bit talkative with a nice uplifted mood and you may be surprisingly quick witted when joking around with friends.
Fast Buds Lemon Ak-47 should be on every growers list of strains to enjoy check it out!:wink:

Oh boy it was a pleasure growing this strain. Very rapid grow from day 1. No the most smelliest strain ever, but it will make your room smell like pine forest with some lemon trees.

***HOW IT GROWS***
From day 1, plant was growing super fast. It loves light. Start with small amount of nutrients, an go full schedule after week 3-4. I recommend providing little nice fan breeze from first week, as stem is developing slower than leaves, sooner you strength it-better for everyone. LST, SCROG worked great. Plant develops a lot of side branches, and if they get good light, they wont disappoint you.
***HARVEST***
Harvested on day 85, after 10 hours of darkness. Dry weight before manicuring was 602 gr, 511gr after. Got about 1g of scissor hash, and 60 grams of trim. Dry bud weight is 88 grams, less than i expected, but i was my fault, i cut too much leaves too often.
Day 1 - 21° 48%.
Day 2 - 21.5°, 55%.
Day 3 - 21.3°, 60%
Day 4 - 22.1° , 60%
Day 5 - 22.4° , 60%
Day 6 - 21.8°, 50%
Day 7 - 21.5°, 50%
Day 8 - 22.3° , 60%
Day 9 - 22.0° , 50%
After 9 days of drying, curing started. Opened jars about 3-4 time a day, for 10 minutes. After 2 week opening jars 1 time a day for 10 minutes.
***TASTE and SMELL***
While growing, she had almost no smell until last week. After it she smelled earthy and piney, with spicy grapefruit notes when sniffed closely. Right after drying, smell was earthy, and turned piney when grinded. I was really surprised with smoke, it was very smooth, no harsh at all. No special taste. After almost a month of curing, buds started to smell like a real lemon, leaving sour aftertaste in mouth. After grinding it smells lemon with pine notes. Absolutely fantastic.
***EFFECT***(after month of curing)
Effects creep in very slow, after about 5-10 minutes. As soon as you think that it will not get you high, you get slapped in the face. Everything starts with strong euphoria, colors change, sounds change. You feel rush of happiness, everything is just great. High comes in waves. stronger than previous. You think you have reached peak, but it just keeps getting stronger. After first few waves, you start to laugh your ass off. Also you become very talkative, nobody can stop you. Also it can change effects really fast. One minute you are laying on a couch ready to sleep, minute after you feel rush of energy and are ready for any physical activity. Greatest thing to do while high, is to listen to music and dance, its just something incredible. High lasts 1.30h. After it you feel sleepy. And if you have smoked for whole day, it will make you feel very tired, and you can sleep like a baby. But if you overcame that feeling, you can continue doing stuff. Doesn't make you feel hungry, but i you tried some food, you just cant stop. Overall, its good strain for smoking in company, in nature, evening walk, holidays, car cruising, listening or creating music. Would not recommend for serious meeting and stuff, as it will just make you giggly.

***FINAL***
Amazing strain, pleasure to deal with it , from grow to smoke. If you want to truly enjoy growing, this strain is for you. I'll give it 10/10, great job @FastBuds , the best for reason. Thanks to everyone who helped me and followed through grow. Grow dat shit, smoke dat shit. Dedicated to my boy NA, get free soon. Peace.
