Nirvana's AK-48 Feminized seeds

AK-48 seeds ticks all the boxes and if you want an easy to grow, resilient, discreet, large-yielding plant that can perform with excellent results outdoors, with a delicious flavor, then look no further.

If you are a beginner or expert grower, then you can be sure to find something special from this land race hybrid! Hash makers or extract artists will have a field day with this cultivar as she gives amazing returns when washing for bubble hash or making dry sift.

She is an extremely durable feminized hybrid that produces large yields of frosty buds, with a well-balanced effect and super quick flowering time. Rich in THC and a great candidate for outdoors in rough climates facing challenging weather, AK-48 is the perfect strain for all climates and anyone searching for a rapid flowering cultivar.


A four way hybrid created by the breeders at Nirvana, that is a cross of Colombian Gold x Thai x Mexican x Afghani. By crossing land race varieties, we were able to create a hybrid strain that has a strong resistance to wind, cold, and plant disease thanks to her Afghani heritage.

AK-48 will produce excellent results outdoors and is ideal for growing in colder climates and growers who experience short summers. Expect true hybrid vigor to be on display and a cultivar that brings out the most desirable traits from the parents.


AK-48 is a short and stout plant, meaning she will flower with a medium plant height of around 120 cm (47 inches). Her growth structure will be uniform with one main central cola with strong side branching, making AK-48 perfect for Sea of Green and SCROG.

Flowering time will range from 7-9 weeks depending on phenotype, which means this lady is a great choice for those looking for a quick turn around or a commercial crop rotation.


AK-48 seeds are highly recommended for growers who experience short Summers.

Outdoors, this strain will grow with a bushy structure that showcases her mix of indica and sativa genetics. An effortless to grow plant that does not require much maintaining and can endure hot weather with no issues.

We advise keeping the plants South-facing for best results, and expect some phenotypes to finish as quickly as 50 days!

Fungal resistance

She is a very tough and sturdy plant that is an excellent performer thanks to her exceptional resilience to mold and also hot and cold weather. We also recommend this strain to growers who live in a mountainous region and experience heavy wind and high U.V levels.

Flowering time


Some phenotypes can finish flowering and be fully mature within 50 days, whilst others may require 63 days. AK-48 Feminized seeds grown in bigger pots and vegetated longer will take more time, however planting in a SOG set up using 7.5 or 10 liter (2 gallon) pots will reduce flowering time further.


Depending on the climate, most plants will require 7 to 9 weeks. We advise planting outdoors in April time and to harvest between the final weeks of October.



AK-48 is a very productive plant for such a short and bushy cultivar, and will reward you with yields of 500 g/m² (1.6 oz/sq ft). With training such as LST and Topping, it is possible to enhance production levels even further.


Yields of 750 grams (26.5 oz) per plant can easily be achieved under the right conditions. Growers who live in a hot climate will be able to get the most out of this hybrid.

Plant height & structure

Despite her land race lineage, she will not grow more than 120 cm (47 inches). Her structure can be described as stocky with a main central cola and medium length side branches. A very uniform and low profile plant ideal for SOG, poly tunnels and greenhouses.


She is a straightforward to work with plant that reacts incredibly well to topping, which will increase the number of growth shoots. It is also a good idea to prune the lower parts of the canopy before flowering, to allow the plants to focus on producing top-heavy buds.

Smell, taste, and effect

The aroma of AK-48 buds are earthy, sweet, fruity, and floral, encompassing an old school smell. When breaking a bud open, she will release a slightly pungent and lemon profile that adds to the complexity further.

Her flavor can be described as sweet, floral, fruity with a citrus edge, making her a truly pleasant smoke with a unique flavor and after-taste that will keep you guessing.

The effects of AK-48 are both euphoric and deeply relaxing, meaning that she is perfect for social scenarios and daytime use. After smoking a joint, users will feel an overwhelming sensation of happiness with sparks of creativity.

Thanks to her well-balanced effects, this strain is well suited for beginner smokers who do not enjoy highly potent indica or racy sativa.

Strain: AK48 Feminized 
Lineage: Colombian Gold X Thai X Mexican X Afghani
Lighting: Indoor LED
Pot Size: 20 liter pot
Grow Medium: BioBizz Soil + Coco +Beneficial bacteria and mycorrhizae
Nutrients: Bio Bizz nutrients + Enzymes
Flowering Time: 54 days
Height: 129cm at harvest
Aroma: Earthy, floral, sweet, hash, citrus 
Bud Structure: large sized nugs with big orange hairs.
THC Results: 16.9% THC

The Vegetative stage - 18/6

The feminized seeds are planted straight into the 20 litre pot, and lightly watered. The plants will be grown under an LED and the temperature is set at 70% relative humidity using a humidifier. 

For the first 2 weeks, we feed 2ml per liter of nutrients and only feed when the growing medium is as light as possible, to encourage large roots. 

We measure the plants after 21 days and they are 42cm tall, with quite long internodal spacing, expressing her indica and sativa lineage. The fan leaves are longer and thin which allows for light to easily enter the canopy.

The nutrient is increased to 5ml per liter and now the AK48 plants are looking vibrant with all leaves angled upwards. The roots have also reached the bottom of the pot and are bursting out the side of the fabric pot.

We take one last measurement before changing the timers to 12/12. When we run her stem there is a bold, musky, earthy and floral incense aroma that lingers on the fingertips, and her height is quite tall at 57.6cm. 

The timers are switched to 12/12 and we will now reduce the amount of time the humidifier is used, to lower the relative humidity from 70% down to the 30% mark.

The Flowering Stage - 12/12

For the first 2 weeks of 12/12, we will allow the AK48 plants to transition and stretch. We feed 5 ml per liter of the bloom nutrients and follow the feed chart.

The growth structure of this hybrid grows with a main tall central top with shorter side branches that are half the size. You could easily apply training such as topping or tying down to really open her up and increase the canopy and final yields even more.

The AK48 plants have really grown fast and measure 124cm. There are loads of flowering sites and pre-flowers that produce bright, fuzzy large sized hair reminiscent of old school Cannabis strains. 

The temperature is 24.5 degrees and the relative humidity is now 37% and will remain this low until harvest. 

When squeezing on the buds, they are sticky and building plenty of large sized trichomes.  The aroma when smelling the buds is a mixture of musky, sweet, earthy with citrus and floral overtones. 

42 days into flower and the plants are measuring on average at 129cm making AK48 a medium height cultivar ideal for anyone with small grow rooms. The resin production is very impressive as she covers every bud and surrounding leaf. 

Now we cut off all nutrients and use only enzymes at 5ml per liter for the next 2 weeks, to wash away any undissolved salts and let the plants use up internal reserve nutrition. 

We inspect the buds after 52 days and the hairs are mostly brown, and the calyx are swollen. We check the trichomes under a microscope and see there are approximately 80% silver with some amber colors. 

The plants are chopped and left to dry for 14 days in a drying room set at 15 degrees Celsius and 50% humidity. A very productive hybrid that is fast flowering and great for hash makers.

Smoke Report:

The first thing that is noticeable is how bright and large the buds are. Wrapped in large fuzzy orange hairs with no leaf on whatsoever. The aroma can be described as earthy and sweet with musky citrus notes. When smoking the flavor is much more pronounced and is more sweet hash floral dominant

After a joint of dried AK48, the effect is extremely relaxing with a euphoric wave that not only makes you feel good, creative and very hungry, it is not too heavy and is perfect for day time use and social scenarios. 

Grow Diaries Report

“ I grew the AK48 from Nirvana Seeds in South Spain and I have never grown these outdoors before but was amazed at the quality of this plant. The set up was an outdoor area that is South facing and does not get lot of the heavy winds from the mountains. 

10 feminized seeds were started in moist tissue paper and left to soak for 72 hours…then once they were 2cm tap root, I carefully transplant them into 5 liter pots of Canna coco and compost from the local garden center. I put them outside on April 15th and leave them to become strong an tough from the sun and winds. They grow very fast and like to eat lot of nutrients I noticed. I did have some insect damage and some of the lower parts of the plants were attacked and eaten, but it is nothing too much.

I am feeding Canna coco A + B and using Cannazyme. The plants love the sun and the fan leaves are almost 30cm long. On August 18th the first white hairs appear and then over the next 3 weeks the plants go absolutely crazy. 

It is still hot in Spain but the AK48 plants are not bothered, which is good as lots of strains I grow get bad heat stress and some even die. The plants are all harvested on the the same day. I choose to carefully hand trim all the buds to save the leaves for making BHO.

Big yields of amazing flowers from Nirvana Seeds. Cannot wait to grow her next year!!! ”

Ak48 is my best mate

Grew into a monster here in NZ. Gre in a 200 gallon fabric pot with homemade super soil based on coco coir and perlite. Just pulled 5 lb dry weight of beautiful sticky sweet buds that'll last me all year. Awesome strain

This was the first strain that I smoked on my first trip to Amsterdam. The effect was very intense and sharp, high visual acuity and very aware of my body.
Growing it is easier than White widow, better result under not ideal lightning conditions indoors, outdoors was a winner, with high root resistance, but this may be attributed to the fact that finished earlier, before the low temperature/high humidity weather arrived in the spring.
