Now that I am "back" and AK47 seems dead, I went with the C99 from peakseeds as many of you might already know from Broseidon's corner.

The idea was exactly what deran said: Basically a "fruitier" replacement for the AK47 in my stable.

However, so far, with only 2 ladies flowered out, the C99 was not it, yet.
Have lots more beans to go through with that strain but so far the 2 I harvested did not convince me. Taste and smell is not fruity and the effect is kind of lackluster.
Still waiting on what the cure will bring out from the ladies but doesnt look too promising atm.


It could well be nostalgia but from what I remember, the AK47 was just more potent. Could have been the particular pheno as well though.

But from the effect, I would agree. The C99 and other sativa leaning hybrids do provide a similar experience. Just not as potent, to me, so far.
Could well be I find a C99 pheno in the future that does perfectly replace the AK though. Haven't given up yet
being the smart ass that i am: hey bro! : its ak48 , when talking nirvana

Being the old fart that I am:
It used to be AK47 from Nirvana as well. I purchased Nirvana AK47, not AK48, back in the day.

Serious Seeds then somehow managed to force Nirvana to respect their "brand" or "trademark", I don't know if they were maybe paid off or something or how they managed it.
But at that point in time, Serious had already lost their AK47 parent(s) and the Nirvana AK47 was regarded as superior by many, even if it was just a blatant F2 ripoff by Nirvana. It was still based on the original parents, unlike Serious' "original" which by then replaced one parent with a "The Chronic" specimen which ultimately ruined the strain.

Either way, at that point in time Serious somehow managed to make Nirvana remove their AK47 from the store and replace it with the AK48 which is a completely different strain and has nothing to do with Serious' original AK47.
Ironically, neither did the AK47 Serious was selling from that point in time onwards.

How I wish I had purchased another pack from Nirvana before that all went down...

Oh well.

We will see if this offers any promise. Odd Strawberries is the strain.

Nope, but I did

But it is a really interesting story.

If Serious hadn't forced Nirvana to remove their AK47 F2 from their shop, we might still have the "original" AK47 to this day.

I really can't get over it how a "copycat" company like Nirvana managed to preserve its strains better than household names like Sensi and Serious.

Back then, everyone and their mother was pooping on Nirvana, calling them hacks, thieves, copycats etc. etc.

And today the boards are full with rage and criticism against banks like Sensi and Serious while Nirvana is basically called an heirloom seedbank.

Just so ironic that whole ordeal, never more clear than with the AK47.

What is the AK48 now actually, I forgot...
Was basically a Haze and Northern Lights cross or something like that I believe. Apparently solid but nothing to write home about.

And to think that I could be in posession of "original" Nirvana F2 AK47 seeds but instead opted for a pack of pure power plant back in the days. We only grew the NL and the AK47 and I still have the pure power plant pack from late 90's. If I had taken a 2nd pack of AK47 I would be sitting on gold right now ...

Not even sure if I should still grow the PPP anymore. So many strains that sound more interesting from MRN, Peak and Ace.... Maybe some day.

bc neither sensi nor serious are doing their breeding, they have "ppl" that do that for them, they just market it by taking over the fictive "copyright"

ak48 is jock horror X ice , jock horror not to be messed up with herrer, also another pedigree

and you dont know if the 1st called 47 from nirvana wasnt a jock horror X ice cross or a serious seeds ak47 F2

Was reading till pg 35, but some came up to say to Nev about saving the genepool.
Saving the genepool can only be done by supporting the local farmers where the varieties are coming from.Introduction of western genetics in those areas would harm more the genepool then say to a breeder that it is duty to save the genepool.
A landrace variety will change when it is grown for several generations in another environment and adapt than where it is coming from.
