Lab-tested THCA 25.0%
Cherry AK-47, a phenotype of the Original AK-47, is a fruity take on its internationally renowned relative. Recognizable for its velvety purple- and red-hued buds, this hybrid strain combines everything for which AK-47 is known and loved — including soaring THC levels and a floral, earthy aroma — with the perfumed wood of eucalyptus and the tart sweetness of its namesake.
With total terpene content often exceeding 5%, Cherry AK-47 has just as much to offer medicinally as it does flavor-wise. But of all terpenes represented (including notably high levels of a-Pinene and b-Caryophyllene), none is nearly so prominent as b-Myrcene — the same terpene found in bay laurel, eucalyptus and lemon verbena — which has consistently, through testing, constituted a whopping 3% of the terpene profile.
In addition to the analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and anti-insomnia properties of this terpene, Myrcia sphaerocarpa — the medium-sized shrub from which b-Myrcene takes its name — has been used in Brazil for centuries as a folk remedy to combat diabetes, dysentery and hypertension. b-Myrcene has also been credited for the sedative “couch lock” effect associated with indica strains, making Cherry AK-47 a good choice for patients suffering from anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain.
