AK-48 Feminized - reviews
This is one of my favorites! Great strain 4 a strong head high without getting bogged down physically! I smoke this one before I do yard work and it is great! Easy plant to grow. Stay short and stocky with a little bit of training. This strain definitely packs a punch.
Grown hydroponically. Low yields. Too tall for grow tent (6' tall) as they have to sit 24" off the floor. Forgiving plant. Burned with nutes and recovered well. Yields were disappointing. Even after figuring out nutes it was disappointing. 15 to 20 grams per plant. Was vegged for only a week then put into flower tent, could have been our yield problem.
Amazing results, no kidding, 48 days. SOG. One of the ladies was out of this world with the trikes. One grower in Colorado said that it didn't look like it was covered in trikes, it looked infested. Super powerful. Fantastic strain of Nirvana's as usual.
Can't imagine why this isn't part of every growroom. Gorgeous colors and delicious taste!
I just completed a 5 month grow cycle of AK-48 seeds. All seeds germinated and I thinned out to four plants. The plants were grown in coco coir in fabric pots under 300W LED lighting in a spare bedroom (no tent). I used the Fox Farm trio with Calmag and faithfully PH all water to 6.5. The AK-48 was problem free with no insects, mold, or disease. I did some Fimming and Super-cropping, but found it really wasn't necessary with AK-48 since the plants grow compact anyway. The only real pruning was to cut off the lower branches. My final yield was 150 grams or 5.29 ounces. After two weeks of drying and curing, the buds are smoking smooth with some expansion in the lungs. And the high is strong yet relaxed. I highly recommend AK-48 to anyone who is looking for an easy grow with great results.
A-1 wow these could of grown them self's great seeds great bud from great people, thank you
This is an amazing strain! Easy to work with.

A very interesting plant. Sativa look and growth pattern, mine grew quite large,over eight feet. I harvested in last week of September in the Pacific North West, they could have used another week or so, but they started to rot on me. Not a great plant for outdoor growing in my region for that reason. Yield was excellent, got 1 and 3/4 lbs off of one plant. High is as described, more towards the indica side than sativa.
AK-48 is a top shelf plant and smoke. I have purchased more than once. Great starter plant for a new grower. Get to know and smoke this beauty.
Very easy grow, medium sized yield, 5 out of 5 seeds popped. Currently on the last two, waiting for Maui Waui to come in. I plan to get my seeds from nirvana until I’ve grown every strain.! Great seeds

Great plant, fast and easy to grow.
I think i was mailed regs not feminized. Only got one female out of five seeds. Cloned it a few times. Very nice smelling and taste. Would recommend this strain for sure.
I really love the AK48, its a great big cola producer. Especially when the plants have been topped, the last grow of these each had 16 colas on top. Yum Yum

One of the best starter plants you will find but also a very good plant for more experienced growers.4 x 4 foot plants under a 300w LED produced nearly 22 ounces(dired/cured) in 110 days.The buds were of medium density.

This strain is great for beginners for a variety of reasons. # 1It is very hardy, so it's hard to screw up. It also doesn't need a lot of attention which is great for a stealthy grow indoor or out. Another great trait of ak48 is it can handle a lot more fertilizer(double) than most other strains. In turn this creates a very fast growing plant that has a good yield and potency that pretty much anyone can grow.
I bought these seeds 4 yrs ago but with travel for my job, just kept them in the freezer in some rice in a small tupperware container. I planted 4 seeds in June, 3 came up and I grew these inside 600w HID and HPS Although I did have to have a friend watch them for a few weeks while traveling, (he was not familiar with cannabis cultivation!) I was surprised when I returned and only problem was a little under-watering. I probably could of let them flower a little longer but still got over an ounce out of each plant, very citrus smell after curing. Love the high, cerebral and somewhat uplifting. Definitely recommend this to new growers as this was my first grow!! Learned a lot and am deciding what to plant next!!! Thanks Nirvana!!
First grow. Seeds shipped to Texas in about 10 days after payment. Grew 3 seeds. 5 weeks veg, 8 weeks flower. Got a little more than 2 oz from each plant. Nice high. Smell/taste just ok. Pretty satisfied. Wonder Woman is next.
Grow space, 2' X 3' Gorilla grow tent Light, Kind LED K3 L300 Soil, Fox Farms Ocean Forest Nutrients, Fox Farms Trio (Grow Big, Big Bloom, Tiger Bloom)Forgiving strain, easy to grow. 5/5 Very good yield, large dense buds 4.5/5 Taste, nothing special 3.5/5 High, strong onset, medium-short duration, triggers appetite makes me very hungry (I think this strain would be excellent for people with suppressed appetites) Very strong odor at end of flowering cycleAll seeds sprouted (I plant seeds directly in soil or rockwool cubes with no germination)The strain is good enough that I will likely purchase more AK48 seeds in the future.
What a great strain. Plentiful, quick, forgiving. Wonderful for beginners, fun to try and push yield for those more experienced. I'm a indoor dirt guy, I can only imagine what you could do outside or hydro.
I just finished the AK48 autoflower grow and I am really pleased. After 4 weeks of curing, I tried it the other night and have to say, taste, buzz,yield, etc. far exceeded my expectations. Total grow from seed to harvest was just over 20 weeks. Will definitely grow this again in the future. Love Nirvana seeds, I've never had an issue with seeds not germinating. Plus all plants have grown healthy and strong.
A favorite of mine for sure!
Hiho fans of fabulously beautiful genetics at great prices. I got my 1st AK48 in the hybrid fem variety pack. Good shit Meynard. Have a fresh pack of 5 ready for action. Is a Cherrylicious in my future? I'll let all y'all know later. TRUST Nirvana without reservations. Stay high my friends!
This was amazing when add to peanut butter cookie dough. The high was upity, funny, body high really fun I love this stuff. Nice yields.
I received my beans in 8 days, very fast even quicker than expected, I ordered 10 AK48-FEM beans and sprouted 4, all sprouted. 2 weeks into my LED tent and they are doing fine. I am having a great first grow in my new LED tent. Keeping the PH in check 6.5 So far Nirvana has surpassed my expectations. I cant wait til the next 6 AK48s go into the tent. Thanks Nirvana
Had pretty descent taste and produced well. Never had the cherry one but always trying to get one. Nirvana the best
I'm a lifelong gardener but new to indoor/MJ grow since it is now legal in Oregon. I've had great success with a few harvests, but so far, this is my favorite variety and everything I've read here seems to be accurate. Easy to grow, smokes great, relaxed/happy high. I also bake with it and it's great for that - very long lasting, maybe a little trippy if you over-do it
All seeds popped and were female. Excellent strain, is a good all around high. Complex, mainly a sativa high with a bit of body high as well. Good yields of reasonably hard buds, mine finish in 51 days. Easy on nutes, easy to grow. Smell is not too overpowering during grow, easy to manage. Highly recommend both as a good high and quick and easy grow.
Seeds arrived in three weeks during Christmas season. Great service. Planted these before and had great results outside. Filled a mason jar full with three plants. Very strong and pleasant high This year they are growing great. Seeds sprouted within 24 hours. Could tell how healthy these plants look, that these were quality seeds.
Easy to grow for my first time, made some mistakes but this strain was quite hardy. Strong and potent. Loses one star for taste.
Vigorous plant. Very sturdy
The AK48 is a wonderful strain. The buds ripen in 7 weeks for real. I have ordered from Nirvana at least 15 times over the past 10 years and have gotten every order around 3 weeks. My germination rate is 100 percent if I do it right. The best way to germinate seeds is to put them in a large rockwool cube and water it several times a day. If you use a small qube and water it once a day you risk the seed getting oxygen.
Again, I have nothing but praise for this strain, for Nirvana, for the people that make it all happen, and for the quality that I can truly and honestly say has been 100% consistent and exceedingly superb for the decade+ that I have been a Nirvana "loyalist" (lol). I never go anywhere else, never even look, and even though sometimes I will come back to Nirvana for a strain that I wanted to purchase again due to the success of the product when I purchased it the first go around and it wont be available any longer, but that says ALOT about these guys because i have yet to come across a strain that has been over-hyped/anything but what they describe. I come back to seek quality, and more often than not I leave finding myself with a whole new batch of higher quality :) I have not had a problem with Nirvana ever. EVER. Not with billing. Not with shipping. Not with Customer Service. Not with the product. Not with bait-and-switch stuff that you find all over the internet. Not with anything. And although the AK-48 says that it is a fast finishing strain, when i had a garden of AK-48 I grew it almost 5 wks veg and just about 7 to 8 wks flower. So, yes, the flower time was certainly trimmed a bit from the normal time that i am used to (~8-10 wks) but as the description says above, you can let it veg longer - as you can most all strains - and that then becomes more of a determining factor as to the time it will take to be "done." It was a serious strain and I ALWAYS have a (and i am going to preface this statement quickly and state that I am not a superstitious person, BUT ever since i was a "youngin'...and at the early stages in my younger life learning and exploring all I could know about this discipline, like in anything, I had tons of mistakes and my yields would be 1/2 lb one grow, and then 1 oz the next, but hey, 18 or so years later and i know just how valuable those years of learining were, because now, there isn't failure grows but a "lower yielding grow" these days 2 decades later is now 1/2 lb/plant - so its all relative) but I ALWAYS, no matter what strains I have, in every garden i have 1 "lucky" Northern Lights plant. Why? I dont really know other than its a great bud, my favorite if i HAD TO choose a "favorite smoke," is resilient as hell and can grow with anything. I even grew it in my tomato garden once by accident (dropped a seed and come early summer, there it was...years ago)... Ok! 5 BIG STARS!
Very quick and sturdy strain. All 5 germinated in a day and are acclimating to Texas outdoor temps very well. I am growing outdoors right now and so far so good.
finaly seeds in my hands i put one to try She germ in less then 24 hours exelent Nirvana
I'm in asia I ordered About 3 weeks ago. the seeds arrive yesterday . very fast shipping,very stealthy, And seeds are safety no damage or any defects. now im gonna try to plant it. hope it grows. just have some concern about my fertilizer that im going to use coz i cant find anything like general hydroponics or any popular fertilizer taht most of the growers are using in youtube. all in all . NIRVANA ROCKS KEEP IT UP!
Arrived very quickly, bought 5, 5 germinated in one day...day 4, 5 strong little beauties, excited to see what comes, will be using Nirvana to supply my babies from now on :)
I bought these on February 2nd they got shipped on February 9th and where at my house today on February 16th all in all a very quick and easy discreet packaging and shipping can not wait to germinate and grow these beauties.
They produce very consistently
Another among my favorites from Nirvana. Fast grower, fast flower, and big smelly, crystal coated buds. Super resilient to beginner folly, and pH ranges. If you don't have one of these growing right now, you're wrong.
The biggest problem is that of the 5 seeds I got, only 2 properly germinated. Two failed to sprout any tap roots, and one failed to break through the surface of the soil. Even with that, the results from the 2 successful seeds make me give this 4/5 stars. 400w got 1.6oz per plant after 7 weeks flowering.
So far im growing two of these things and I did attempt to grow some of the mystery seeds. But I just want to let people know how great these plants really. I'm 2 months into growing these things and they're doing fantastic. I live in a climate where it hits up to 110 degrees and these guys have been acting like its nothing. So for you guys who worry about keeping your temperature down, these will handle.Unfortunately most of random seeds have died from the heat, but it really speaks wonders about the durability of these. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for you summer growers in hot climates. I'll buying these every summer. Thanks Nirvana! Ill update you guys on the final products.
I ordered 5 ak48s from nirvana. All 5 have sprouted and after 1 day are 2" tall. Really fast delivery and great stealth. Nirvana is my forever seed supplier!
First I want to say that Nirvana rocks! Very fast and absolutely ingenious stealth shipping.With only five seeds I grew this strain from 2010 to 2012 until I had to stop smoking for a while to go to school. I was a novice grower at the time and every seed sprouted within days. Growing was fairly easy by simply following the directions on the numerous grow sites proliferating the web. I typically was able to get 3 ounces per plant, but that was as a novice grower using CFLs and not vegging longer than a couple of weeks. Still every plant produced the best weed I ever smoked. Everyone who tried it absolutely raved about it, and I have missed it a LOT.I can't wait until my much upgraded grow room is completed and I can start producing those beautiful aromatic buds once again. By the way the price for these seeds cannot be beat and the addition of 10 freebies makes me feel like I'm getting way more than I paid for. Thanks a billion!
This one one of my favorite strains from Nirvana. I have a smaller space indoors and this plant suits my needs. It is productive, hardy, and clones easily. It does grow quickly and tallish for my space though so I have to deal with it over shadowing others and keep it from growing into the light, while strains like Swiss cheese are still just half the height. Aurora Indica seems to be a good pair for this plant as it grows pretty similarly but I would love to find another strain that would compliment the two for a good variety. It is a stand by for me though, mostly because of how productive it is and the quality it delivers.
I got one of these in a "collection" I ordered from Nirvana. At 3 wks from germination it's beat out the Northern Lights I'm also growing, which is now 6 wks. It's not tall, which is great, but the leaves are huge, bold, and plentiful. I had to move it from a 2-inch pot to a 2-gallon one about 4 days ago, and it was already getting rootbound with thick, hairy roots. Plan to let it veg 8 wks but if at the rate it's going, I might be able to cut off a couple and enjoy it that much sooner! Very hardy plant, will grow more! Thanks Nirvana!
I met a guy who told he did the following:He used 10 gallon (42 liter) felt grow bags, filled with Foxfarm Ocean Forest potting soil. He kept the bags a few inches in the air by placing pieces of wood underneath. He said it allowed the bags to breathe like they are supposed to.During the indoor "season", he only added only mychorrhizae (beneficial bacteria for the root system) twice. He only added bloom fertilizer once, early in the flowering period.He said he had to tie them back, as they grew about 60 inches tall. He did not prune the plants.He grew these under a 1000w HPS and yielded 5 to 7 ounces of trimmed dried bud, from each plant.He also said they can get damaged from mold, so keep an eye on those buds if they get wet.He said AK-48 received many compliments and was often sought by those whose sampled it.That is all he said.
Great seeds got them two days ago ann already germed an potted great job nirvana
The delivery flows much better as expected, stealthy with no problem and delivered in 3 days. Starting to germinate to move forward.
C'est une plante qui pousse assez facilement. j'ai récolter fin septembre début octobre. avec un peu moins de 200gr par plantes. C’était ma première culture et en guérilla. C'est possible de faire +
I have ordered this three times it is a great performer , i had 11 1/2 " fruit on one " nice "
Okay, I grew this last year. AMAZING everything about this baby. So I found some of my grow from last year. Smoked some and remembered I got that seed from nirvana seed.com I ordered some new seeds that showed in 1week 1day (kick ass Nirvana) Decided to work with 3new seeds (while smoking that old stuff-ahhh memories) decided to do right and store my new seed babies in a nice dark spot Rooted new seeds in 1 day. Planted the next. 2seeds doing well, 1failed they broke ground the next day and thought, I'm gunna plant more girls now since I lost one. Ok, remember smoking some stash from last year, but for the life of me, I can't remember what the flock I did with those seeds I just purchased from you guys. I placed a new order immediately, and already have my new babies in my hands NOT SMOKING ANYTHING YET. As far as the seedlings are concerned, they are beautiful healthy younglings. I have great confidence Nirvana sent me all females and I will have to keep a proper progress log as I go (journal first then smoke) on this my second time growing. If I could post photos I would so any guidance is greatly appreciated. Yo, last years stash is sooo flicking mmmmmhmmmwoooo....and I had no idea what I was doing. Kind of you tubing my way along. And wow...I'm actually researching this time...and yes I can remember research. I just can't remember where I hid the first set of fucking seeds.
I ordered 10 seeds to try this out and of that 9 germinated. This was my 3rd grow and by far the easiest so far. I had some PH issues but now I think I have a handle on that and am now trying the Master Kush hoping for the same success I had with this. It looks like all the good reviews I've heard about Nirvana have been right on! Thanks Nirvana, I plan to keep you on as my seed bank for a long time.
Got seeds on US west coast in 5 days amazing! Soaked in water over night one day in paper towel and have already piped very impressed will keep updated as grow progress.
a serious pleasure to grow all the way through. It germinated quickly, showed sex quickly, and was finished after 52 days in bloom. beautiful, sticky, buds that are a pleasure to smoke. the high is energizing and cerebral while still relaxing the body nicely, no couchlock here. I have already ordered again just to have them in the library. one of my favorite strains that I have ever grown. one hit quit for some friends!
If your thinking of trying ak 48 do it you won't be disappointed it is tall smells delicious and tastes as it smells skunky fruity awesomeness with a very good yield I'm overly impressed grow almost as fast as bubbelicious but much better quality in my opinion I like all of nirvanas strains . Hi Alice....Peace
Since placing the order, I received the seeds within 2 and a half weeks. Very satisfied
I recommend this strand for the novice grower! This will make you look like you have been growing for years! If you are an experienced grower you will appreciate how easy they are and how low maintenance they are! Nirvana Rocks! I hear comments like " This is the best weed i have seen in 20 years"!No Joke Ak48 is the real deal!
I love this plant, the first time I've honestly broken n Oz per plant benchmark under LED! I've got a makeshift tent/flowering room approx. 1.5ft X 5ft(sorry, I'm American;) lit by one 90w mother keeper, and one regular ufo. In case your curious the mother keeper was originally for autoflowering seedlings, but I discovered auto's n I don't really get along:D A lil serendipity(if I can use that;) and I found out the added blue seems to make flowering faster too. Maybe just me. Anyway, sorry for the novel.. she easily broke n Oz/zip whatever in less than 9 weeks:)
Growing AK for 2 years in a row now and what I can say is very little to describe it....Perfect buds...Huge and hard ones....Be sure you keep a fan blowing good air on them...and even the bottom and smaller buds were really dense indeed. Good job guyz!That AK48 is a wonderful match!
I liked this strain. nice buds nice flavour!
very easy to grow has medium bag apeal
So far these are great. Lights at 20/4 and 1 auto flowered at 28 days and 2 others at 30 days. They are now 6 weeks from birth and are 4 feet tall (1.2m) with a nice solid colas. I can't wait until they are ready. The way these are going it wont be that long.

This strain is one of the best I have grown. The high is intense and if you take several hits it will leave you in a trippy state of mind. I highly recommend this strain. I have 4 seeds left and can't wait to grow again. This grow was with ICE and Bubbleicious all seeds from Nirvana and every strain was perfect. All seed were feminized and the girls were beautiful.
I have purchased 5 ak48 fem I placed my order on 8/8/13 and they arrive today 8/20/13 just 12 days after. I'm so excited I can't wait to see my plants grow. Thanks nirvana I definitely will continue to order from nirvana excellent service
A true classic. The yield is above average and the smoke is smooth and complex in taste. I had three phenos, all great yielders, but one was a monster. They smoke is so smooth and the effect is almost pure sativa. Finish was at 46 days flowering and 48 days, as advertised. This was the best yield I have had under these grow conditions. The smoke is hella fire. I highly recommend this strain for anyone looking for an early girl with a sativa effect.
Wow, I ordered AK48 on 9/21/2013 and my seeds arrived today! Only 7 business days later, this wouldn't be such a big deal but I'm currently in SE Asia near Singapore and I'm used to delayed shipments. The package was pretty stealthy, although I'm not really experienced enough to have anything to compare it to, the seeds were in crush proof packaging though which is a + since I've heard complaints of people receiving damaged seeds from some banks. For my first order from Nirvana I have to say I'm pretty pleased so far, currently germing so I'll be back later with other updates. Cheers!
Still curing but overall 5 star as expected (2nd grow). Up high like haze. Long lasting working buzz. Yummy
purchased 5 of each all fem. shipping was outstanding (apx. 10 days usa). soaked 2 of each in water for 12 hours then put them in dirt, all of them sprouted over the next 2 days, day three they had their first set of leaves...outstanding! Very happy with my experience so far...
I know it say's it's a 7-9 week flowering plant but I'm at week 9 1/2 and the trics are still pretty cyrstal clear and erect under the digital microscope. Bonus!!! The bud I looked at, I ended up drying out (waste not want not) and it was a very good stone.
have grown this great plant for nearly 2 years now and has never let me down beautiful high good crop for the money these are the best
I got 5 femized ak seeds from nirvana, shipping was 16 days long to turkey, all of them germinated :) and I impaintly wait for veg and bloom ;)
firstly this is a great strain when you get a good one. i ordered 5 fem seeds but only 2 germed and took 48 hours (every seed ive had from nirvana has been 24) after 4 weeks veg one took off and filled the box the other was a lot slower and never seemed to reach the crutial point. just finished flower and 2 1/2oz dry from the beast and fuk all from the other (i didnt give her the love as the other got so big she filled 1.5m x1.5m box and got to about 5 1/2 foot tall. love this company will be ordering again very soon. much love
My 2nd time ordering seeds from Nirvana, quick delivery, nice stealth package as usual. From 15 seeds only 12 germinated, but after I explained the issue to the support (I know how to germinate without killing the seeds), Nirvana gave me free points for the next shopping tour. Plants have small to medium height, still ok for my 5feet growroom. They survived a week without watering in 2gal pots, grew like crazy and were harvested after 9 weeks, because I had to move out of my appartment, another week or 2 wouldnt have done any harm to them. I grew 3 different strains (AK, WonderWoman,AuroraIndica), so its hard to tell, but one of those 3 smelled much stronger, than WhiteWidow or CaliforniaOrangeBud (the only strains I grew before).
Here it is august 14th.When I placed my first order on July 30th I expected to receive it by now. But I didn't expect to have seedlings over 6 inches tall!Placed my order on Sunday,got it on Saturday,germinated over night,and popped out of the dirt two days later..You guys rock!Here's lookin forward to a long and happy relationship.
Had a little issue with sprouting. Put all 5 in room temp water, and stored them in a cabinet overnight. 2 cracked within 24 hours, the other 3 were put in between 2 moist paper towels, in tupperware with the lid slightly cracked, and put them back in the cabinet. Unfortunately, 1 of the 3 sprouted after another 24 hrs. Threw the remaining 3 in soil, but the 2 with no sprouts never showed, even within a week. So i tossed those. 1 plant i lost due to me dropping the pot. The remaining 2 grew great, and were both fems!!! Thank you very much Nirvana, regardless of sprouting problems, the genetics were fantastic! Excited to start my new grow of snow white or Ice. 4 stars to the strain, 5 to Nirvana.
I Have Purchased These Seeds Two Years In A Row....With The Same Unbelievable Results.....I Grow In Raised Beds. Outdoor ,In The Coastal Redwood Zone Of North America. 12 To 15 Feet Tall.....20+ Feet Around....NO JOKE!!!!!
These finished early, produced alot and it was excellent quality. Nirvana is a great place to buy seeds.
second batch of seeds sprouted with no problems, very healthy strain, can't wait to flower! so far this has been a very easy seed to start.
I use this for medicinal and fun!! It grows easy and will always delight. Not too heavy of a high, just right for feeling fine!!
First off, never fear, Nirvana will take care of you in style. Great customer service and faster delivery to US than any Canadian seed source.Now for the "meat and potatoes". After having a lot of problems with my growing technique (a lot has changed in the 40 years since my last grow), I sprouted and grew 3 nice AK fems. All of them a different height with one being about 8 " taller than the next closer shorter one. I germed Feb. 22 and had to switch my lights to 12/12 and transplanted them on 4/1 due to onset of flowering. On 5/7 I had to chop the top of one plant because it was already ripe after only 39 days but everything else still needs another 7-10 days to finish. Maybe a few days longer. We'll just have to wait and see. While vegging the plants I had to thin out the leaf structure because they were all a solid dome of dense foliage. Quite impressive looking. Imagine a huge dark green "gumdrop" looking plants.Growing AK is a no-brainer. My 3 along with 2 Pineapple Express make for an outstanding grow in my 2 x 5' closet and the aroma of AK, earthy and slightly sweet odor mixed with the very potent smell of overripe Pineapple of the PE make for a killer smelling room.I can hardly wait for the first few tops that are already harvested to dry for testing. Another plant I had good results from was Master Kush. I only was able to grow one of the five but that is all my fault so I never said anything to Nirvana about it. When I switched lights to 12/12 on this one it shot up from only 6 1/2 " till it topped out at 34 inches at harvest..Now I think I'll try my Papaya or Aurora Indica, possibly both on my next grow. So many varieties......so little space.
This was my second real indoor grow, I say real since it was the second "real strain" I have grown, not including bag seeds. Anyway, 5 for 5 germ (all females) using the simple paper towel method. I only had room for 4 plants so I had to ditch the weekest looking one......not that any of them looked week. I vegged 5 weeks (showed sex in 4) with a 400w MH inside a growlabs tent, then switched to a 400w HPS for flowering. I flowered mine for 9 weeks.........maybe could have shut it down at 8, but no way was it going to be done in 48 days. Each plant was pretty much the same, no diffent pheno's for me. I produced 220grams of nice buds and 120grams of nice trim/popcorn buds. The smoke is smooth, but doesnt have a great tatse, not bad just not great.(hoping a longer cure will better the taste) The buzz is strong and long lasting and seems to knock me out after a few hours. These ladies were easy to grow and I never had an issue, I grew in FFOF using the full line of FF products.This week Ill be starting my Blackjack, I hope it goes as easy as this grow.
Planted in my normal way. Germed in 3 days, but was very small. The first one finger leaf appeared, again very small and the stem was about the size of a hair. It just sat there for about a week and I had decided not to waste any more light on this plant and I went and planted another seed. When I went back to pull the first one it had started to grow and a second set of leaves were forming, so I let it go. Within a week there was no comparison to the tiny little plant that first appeared. The stem was thickening and it was throwing set after set of leaves. The new leaves come out right on top of the last set with barely any stem in between. It is now about a foot tall, bushy as can be, thick seemed, has a stem growing out of every leaf node and some of the bottom stems are nearly as tall as the plant itself. This looks like it will be a good addition to my little garden.
I have ordered 5 seeds of feminized AK48, the first delivery did not arrived, was lost in the post, but Nirvana quickly sent a second letter that arrived quickly (in less than a week). All the 5 seeds have germinated in 48 hours, now my babies are growing very well under two 70 W MH lamp (one is Phillips Master City White CDO-TT, the other is Osram Powerball HCI-TT in a small 80x70x55 HxWxD stealth cabinet). The internodes are very short, all the plant are very bushy, my expectations are high.

This was the third time I've grown out the AK48 a because it truly is one of my favorites. Smooth smoke, excellent yields. Even with short veg times, this strain excels under a scrog screen.
I recommend buying this, easy to grow, has big full buds. Great taste with a stoney high.
I'm harvesting today at 52 days grown in, fabric containers 70/30 mix Soil/Vermiculite. Lot of dense sticky buds, I've got a thread over at 420 magazine complete with Trich shots from my USB Microscope. Dense Dense Trichs and since I discovered late in my grow my ph meter was way off and ph burned the entire crop, I had to prune off most of the sugar leaves as they were sriveled up anyway. The fact I got such good product out of such an abused plants is testimonial to it's hardiness and suitability for beginners.Thread:http://www.420magazine.com/forums/journals-progress/138985-ak-48-northern-lights-2-x-180watt-leds-6.html#post1317794
I have purchased approximately 10 different strains from Nirvana, and so far this is my favorite by far. For those looking for that smoke that has that KGB flavor with a chronic laid back high, this is it. Very easy to grow as well. A newbie like me was able to produce a good amount off one plant my first time out.
Delivered in five days! Seedlings in three days. Planted two seeds and two came up beautifully.CT, USA
i have been ordering for about 2 years out of many orders i had one order that didnt make it thou. an Alice made it right with me. So those of you wondering should i or shouldnt i order.....Without a doubt Order... I have done White Widow - Wonder Woman - All with GREAT Yields an Now i Just ordered AK-48 AN im sure it will Be another Big Yielder Running 8 pack systems with a 1000 watt light !!!! Next time iam gonna try the auto flowering seeds just to see how well they work! But my friends around the world who enjoy this hobby Happy 420!!!
First time grower as i am, i am surprised to see that this really works, of five seed the two first gave me a total of 10gr, as i said it was the first time and light, soil and nourishment was not the best, the third one made a knot of herself so i lost her, the fourth one i gave more light, better/more soil and Canna nourishment, this girl became a monster with big colas and a yield of about 25gr, the high is really ok, the smell is fruity not at all as hasch, dont know if thats ok with the smell? Anyway i get high and thats enough! Used 160w LE lamps, five lamps. Next time will be Aurora indica when/if the seeds arrive, maybe i double the light next time!
Wow planted three AK-48 feminized seeds all sprouted in two days and started growing faster than any other plant I have grown , Got my mother plant, cloned very easy put on 12/12 and in a week nice buds started, about week two of 12/12 they started to smell up my room so if you can vent outside.In all nice buds nice head !! Great job Nirvana
Nirvana has a winner with ak48. Seeds all germinated. Nice big buds and potent too. Nirvanas shipping and stealth cant be beat. Shop with confidence @ nirvana!
I got my seeds and grew this plant, one great plant grew fast, very strong
I grew 5 ak48 in july . SUPERB !!!!!! I Hope my another 5 Ak´s come soon :))
Yep, Salut les Weeders, et tout particulièrement les Newbies de la culture...rassurez-vous, avec cette variété, résistante à une mauvaise culture (T°, Engrais, Humidité, ...), il est possible de la faire survivre à des conditions climatiques néfastes pendant des mois (le temps d'apprendre à bien cultiver bien sûr). Et sinon du point de vu du goût je dirai 4/5 et l'odeur 4/5 dans de bonne conditions de culture, sans stress. Ah oui, et parler à vos plantes, ...avec amour!! Si si, ça fonctionne mieux. Love your plants, they will return U the favor. Bye Girls, Bye Boys.
Got my first order from Nirvana, AK-48. 5 out of 5 popped, wound up with three. The three look great and I am patiently waiting until 12/12. I figure I will let it go for 6 weeks in veg and see what happens. As far as Nirvana goes, I don't think there is anyone better out there and I look forward to doing more business with you in the future. Alice rocks!!!
Not My favorite strain here at nirvana but it is nice. Found there to be some different phenotypes but all of them were good. Buzz is as described by Nirvana-shop Cerebral / Heady kind of an uppy buzz. Does not seem to burn You out. Moderate yield of some very sweet fruity buds. I did find it to be a little sensitive. Watch Your PH and start easy on the nutes. No problems with Germination. I would recommend this strain for someone looking for weed You can somewhat function on. Should give You a nice buzz without laying You on the couch for the rest of the day.
Plants are 6 weeks into 12/12, 26" tall and VERY bushy, topped them during veg. stage. Very early developers, 1" diameter buds everywhere with a very heavy frosty trichome coating on everything. I veg with a 4 bulb X 48" T5 setup, 20/4 schedule, then move them to (2) 400w HPS for 12/12. will update at harvest and let you all know about taste/buzz/yield.
AK-48 is an excellent strain to grow. I've never had any problems with this strain. It is very strong and is becoming more and more popular.
Got my 5 seeds - thank you very much - all sprouted within 48 hrs - lost one due to my own mishandling and bad planting. This is my 1st order - will order again - every thing is as advertised
Started with 5 seeds. All germed quickly. Gave a couple to a buddy and ended up with three beautiful ladies. Easy and fast flowering. My cancer survivng friend was extremely grateful. Thanks Nirvana!
My first shipment was confiscated by customs, but Nirvana came through and sent me a second. The whole process took 5 weeks though.
I recieved my seeds about 10 or 11 days after I ordered them. Which is good, becuase I ordered on a weekend and there was also a mail halting holiday. This was my first order through these guys, so I was a little nervous about losing my money. The order came fairly fast, stealthy as could be, and the seeds look very fresh. You can't ask for more than that. Thanks Nirvana, another customer happy indeed.
this is a great seed it germinated overnight and is now over 17 inches tall just put to flower room will update you as she goes love it!

Vegged in organic soil for 7 weeks, Flowered for 65 and 70 days, then harvest. Cut top 2/3 of plant and left bottom buds alone for 2 more weeks. They developed and crystaled up more to finish. Mine were not a short flowering plant, it took this long for amber trics to appear. Dryed and cured for 3 months. sweet smelling buds and good high. Did not top since they were slower than the bubblelicious and strawberry bubba kush in veg. Wish I did top for more big colas, love those donkey dicks on plants. Next up is Nirvana snow white and blue mystic. Looking for that blueberry pheno and a better strain than white widow. AK is a great strain and the fems worked well. Thanks Nirvana for a reasonable priced fem seed. Just read that serious in having trouble with their new AKs. Glad I got Nirvana. If in US ask for stealth shippin.
4 out of 5 germed, grown well, now at 4'6" high and almost ready to harvest I estimate around 200grams(dried) from the 4 plants. Happy Daze
Great for a good head high, good healthy plant, no issues with heat flux. Can take some abuse, although will hinder weight. great weight per plant. Highly recommended!
This has been a very fun plant to grow. Good strong seeds have made awesome plants. Love it, defintely a sweet smoke.
was unhappy with stealth delivery was too stealthy ......... was unhappy with delivery time was just too quick took 7 days ...... n i was really really unhappy when they all came undamaged .......... really pissed i cracked 2 beans n they both sprouted in 24 ..... unreal... other than that nirvana is by far the best ....
I grow one or two plants at a time in a small closet grow. This strain has performed remarkably. Every seed germinated and produced lush, robust plants. They finished flowering in seven and a half weeks. I didn't get quite the yield i had hoped for, but I'm sure that is because I use CFLs rather than HID lighting. My AK-48 produces a heady, trippy, energetic high. I love it and highly recommend this variety.
This is my third grow with your feminized seeds, I've completed one with the freebie's that turned out to be NYPD and the other was Papaya. Both germed with in 48 hrs and had average yield for the light system I'm using (400W MH & 400W HPS to finish). I've just started to germ my AK48's and I'll grow these in a hydro system, like the other two. I follow a 18/6 veg lighting period and switch to HPS for the flowering stage. With my hydro system I can control the amount of nutreints and water, with a timer so it's more user friendly and I can take a couple of days off without worrying about the girls needs while i'm gone. I do change the nutreints weekly which helped control the PH of the system. If this strain is as good as the others, and I'm sure it will be another great grow . Thanks Nirvana for your excellant products. I'll let you know the outcome of this grow as soon as it's done
My hat's off to Nirvana. Great Strain, Just sampled a dryed ,not cured bud from its first harvest, and WOW, what a good high. Still buzzin after 4 hours, can't wait till curing will only enhanced this easy to grow, clone and harvest plant. Grown indoors, finished in about 50 days start to finish, and ten clones in the hopper. Momma never looked so good and healthy.I strongly recommend this strain. Love Nirvana and thanks to ALice on a recent problem. All is well and all have survived and looking forward to letting all know the luxury of BlackJack aat its finest.
As usual my AK-48 seeds arrived quickly and in excellent condition. Will post a progress report on them as they are growing. Thank you Nirvana for a superb service.
Received order pretty fast. Thought the seeds looked kind of small. Soak overnight (distilled water), and planted directly in moist soil (light warrior) and place in humidity tent. 3 of 3 were up in two and half days. So far so good, will report progress later.
OMG this AK48 is everything I expected. It was an easy and enjoyable grow and it was a great yield, very potent, and at 2 weeks of curing the taste is phenominal! It had a huge number of flowering tops (26 I think) and they flowered beautifully! The main cola was magnificent! Thanx Nirvana! I'm burnin' up the boards talking about you!P.S. Can you guys get a strain called Madonna?
grows great outdoors. thanks nirvana
I drop only one in paper towel and of course it sprouted along with the 14 other beans. Only here good reports-grow-healthy-fast-taste great-really good high ! ! First time growing AK48, can't wait for all 7 different strains! Looking for that special plant/grow/crop/smoke/high. Hell I get high just GROWING these great strains from Nirvana. Thanks Again Nirvana !!
Super !!! bonne culture, et surtout bon rendement!!! a conseiller vivement!!!
No matter what i have goin' on, i always seem to have some 48 thrown in somewhere. I can always count on it. A moderate producer with decent, hard nuggs. Very dependable and worth always having. Grows nice outdoors as well. Nice 5-6 ft. in height with good resiliency to disease. Would definitely recommend to anyone, beginners as well as veteran farmers. One of my favs.
