The Crossbreeding No-Brainer of All Time?
There are some cannabis cross-breeding experiments you simply cannot go wrong with. Those that take two or more of the world’s most celebrated strains and bring them together, in order to create something that combines their most appealing properties. A firm contender for the title of ultimate no-brainer, White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version burst onto the scene as a strain that couldn’t possibly fail.
Comprising approximately 70% Indica and 30% Sativa genetics, White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version has the kind of superstar ancestry that speaks for itself.
First of all, you’ve the all-time great that is White Widow – a multi-award-winning specimen that’s been around for more than three decades. Similarly, AK-47 has been delighting recreational and therapeutic audiences since the day of her debut, picking up a long list of awards and accolades in the process.
Bring these two heavy-hitters together and the result is exactly what you’d expect it to be. A powerful and punchy 20% THC hybrid, which combines a racing cerebral uplift with a potent and long-lasting body stone.
This being the fast version of the strain, the usual flowering time of around nine weeks has been reduced to just seven weeks. All without compromising any of the quality of the final smoke – perfect where time and patience are in short supply.
Fragrant, flavorful and easy to grow indoors or out, White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version is ideal for the indecisive stoner. After all, why limit yourself to the benefits of one all-time classic, when you can enjoy all that’s great about two for the price of one?
Flavor and Fragrance of White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version
Interestingly, the fruity fragrance you would normally expect from a batch of well-cured White Widow is absent from the mix. Instead, this amalgamation of premiere genetics is more classically earthy and skunky. There’s also plenty of spice and old-school dankness to the whole thing.
It’s a similar tale with the taste, which is dominated by spicy skunkiness and peppery pine. Nothing you’d describe as complex or challenging – more a simple and uncomplicated affair of pure quality.
It’s worth noting that what White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version lacks in complexity, she more than makes up for in pungency. Both in raw form and when combusted, the stench is simply insane. Smoke indoors or out and everyone within a square mile will know exactly what you’re up to.
Does White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version qualify as a productivity smoke? Perhaps, but on the strict condition that you’re talking tasks you intend to complete within the next 30 minutes or so.
For a very finite period of time, you’re fired up with the drive, determination and desire to make things happen. A hard-hitting kick of energy and enthusiasm that can be great for rounding off the day, putting the finishing touches to whatever you’ve been working on.
However, push things too far time-wise and you’ll live to regret it. Half an hour or so into the experience and this initial burst of outgoing energy comes to a crashing halt. You’ll still be riding wave after wave of optimism, positivity and confidence, though now coupled with an incapacitating physical stone that’ll have you out of action for the duration.
A sense of warm weightiness quickly descends from the neck down, making it increasingly difficult to remain upright. Anything other than modest consumption more or less guarantees gluing you to the nearest piece of furniture for the next few hours.
Given time, White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version has a tendency to ease you in the direction of unconsciousness, after which a prolonged spell of deep sleep is inevitable.
This is therefore a strain you need to time appropriately, as opposed to hitting in the middle of the day and immediately regretting it. Novice users should also approach 20% THC strains with due care and caution, as even just a couple of heavy tokes can be enough to bring on a bewildering high.
Medical Uses of White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version
For a strain with predominantly Indica genetics, White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version is a surprisingly versatile therapeutic specimen. The effects of the strain are largely physical in nature, though the immobilizing body stone is coupled with an enjoyable mood boost that lingers throughout. Even at the height of the physical stone, you’re instilled with feelings of confidence, optimism and positivity that makes for an immensely enjoyable experience.
Hence, this herb is perfectly capable of getting to grips with anxiety, depression and all types of mood disorders, along with those times you simply need pulling out of an emotional rut for any reason.
That said, it’s on the physical side of the spectrum where this Indica-heavy strain really shines. Warming and numbing the body in its entirety from head to toe, this herb makes light work of mild to moderate pain conditions. Muscle spasms, migraines, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory conditions – all reported to respond well to measured and moderated consumption.
Patients with sleep disorders like insomnia may also find welcome relief in the sedating properties of White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version. As may those with appetite issues – relatively prolonged bouts of the munchies are the norm with high-THC cannabis in general.
Newcomers to medicinal weed are advised to take things slowly at first – a THC content of 20% or more can be punchy during the initial stages in particular.
Growing White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version Seeds
White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version is relatively easy to grow and doesn’t need a great deal of space. It’s worth remembering that this is the fast version of the strain – not an auto or feminized variant. This is a standard photoperiod that combines a mix of male and female seeds, which have been precision-engineered to deliver quality results after a much shorter flowering period.
A good two weeks or so have been shaved off the flowering time, without compromising the quality or potency of the final result. Just seven weeks or so of flowering is all it takes to produce as much as 5oz of weed for every square meter of grow space. Which really isn’t bad, considering the compact nature of the plants and how easy they are to grow.
Outdoor cultivation is perfectly possible in cooler Northern European climates, aiming for a harvest towards the beginning of October. White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version is durable and resilient enough to stave off most common plant pests and diseases, meaning minimal TLC required for maximum gains.
Combining all of the most appealing properties of her superstar parents, White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version is an irresistible prospect for the home grower. Durable, resilient and easy to succeed with indoors or out, generous yields are on offer after just seven weeks of flowering.
Typically measuring in at around 20% THC, this is a strain with more than enough power and punch to satisfy even the most seasoned stoners. Perfect for moments of pure indulgence and the ultimate non-alcoholic nightcap, White Widow x AK-47 Fast Version is a dream come true for therapeutic and recreational use alike.
