AK-47 x NL-5Strain Profile

AK-47 x Nothern Lights #5

Posted on: October 20th 2009

While we weren’t all that excited by the also-ran nature of the strains that composed this hybrid, this sample really surprised us with its enjoyable experience, especially the effects.

Appearance

Covered in orange-brown pistils, this strain almost had a yellowish hue to it that made it look less appealing than it actually was from afar.  It wasn’t exactly covered with tall visible trichs either, so this strain would probably fly a bit under the radar for most people.  But upon magnification, its trichome coverage becomes apparent.

Aroma

This strain unleashed a very unexpected blast of sweetness combined with a cocktail of spices, similar to what one would find in egg nog or mulled wine.  A variety of smooth and sweet smells from cinnamon to cardamom was the dominant aroma.  When it was ground up, it trended a bit more towards the standard citrus side with a vegetal sweetness, which when combined with the initial smell reminded one reviewer of candied orange peels.  Though it won’t make you sneeze with its pungency, it was above-average in that regard and could be detected from a few feet away.

Qualities

Immediately after smokin, our reviewers found themselves in a quickly elevated mood and with a super heavy high behind the eyes that felt like they weighed 5 pounds each.  A spacey head and vibrating body were also part of the package, putting our review team in a great mood where they wanted to be as social as possible or pursue creative endeavors.  The body high seemed to move mostly to the feet/legs and filled them with a buzzing energy as it went on – our reviewers were pain-free during the review despite doing a variety of activities.  This was a fairly superb hybrid high that hit on almost every desirable trait of an MMJ experience, with no anxiety, paranoia, or other negativity.
