AK Cherry Lime Medical Marijuana Strain Review


Grade:  A-

Type:  Sativa-dominant Hybrid (phenotype of AK-47)

Price:  $50/8th

Appearance:  (8/10)  Pale green with pinkish pistils and a spear-like structure, this sample had above average trichome coverage, but many were damaged and missing heads upon closer inspection.  Other than that, it was a very well cared-for sample that was cured and dry the way we like it.

Aroma:  (8/10)  The strain name is evident in the aroma — there’s a sweet fruity smell in the jar that turns into a pungent and very citrusy (definitely lime) sharpness after being ground up or handled.

Taste: (7/10)  Smooth citrus with almost vanilla and spice notes, reminded us of a lime creamsicle.

Effects:  A warm body buzzing with energy was a sign of things to come, while the strong initial mental spaciness was short-lived.  Once it settled in, energy was prevalent, as was the motivation to take on tasks — chores disappeared one after another, and barely a thought was given to them… auto-pilot a bit.  While it wasn’t a total painkiller, it did relax the body quite a bit despite the energetic bent of the experience.  As the effects died down, a bit of tiredness and the urge to sit came on, making this an “up then down” strain.

Duration:  Long, 2.5 – 3 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Energy and motivation flowed freely despite the mental spaciness at times.  As the experience wore on, it took on a more somatic and relaxing tone, but the body was relaxed the entire time.  The strong eye effects suggest that it may be useful for glaucoma, etc.

Overall:  One of those strains that makes you enjoy even menial tasks and do them well, this AK was a welcome boost of energy and motivation as well as an improvement in mood.  This was also a strain that lived up to its name, truly delivering a sweet and citrusy experience that was totally enjoyable.  No warnings here, it was never too potent and never showed any negative effects — this one is good for any level of patient who enjoys a bit of energy in a Sativa.
