Nirvana's AK48. I thought it would be a keeper, but unfortunately its not a keeper for me personally.
I gave it right under 8 weeks to flower before harvesting. Trichs were 80% cloudy with 15% amber and the remaining 5% clear. Air dried them for 4 days just like I've done with past harvests. From there, I put them into jars to start the cure.
I realize that, the longer you cure the buds.. the better they'll end up being. I realize that, but, at the same time.. I like to take a few little sample buds out to test while the rest starts curing.
I will say this.. I didn't even finish one single bowl though.. before I started feeling a little head change.. or a "buzz". About ten to fifteen minutes into the buzz... then the "relaxed" "chilled" effect kicks in.. then about 5 minutes into that, the actual "high" sneaks its way. Very smooth transition I might add.
Lastly.. it could use a little more taste and a stronger smell might help it out as well. It has pretty much zero smell. That is, until you start breaking up the buds.. then the smell is let out. The smell reminds me of grapefruit/lemonade.. not too strong.. but not strong enough IMO. As far as the taste goes,... hard to describe but at the same time its a good taste. Kinda earthy, fruity, and piney taste to it.
Anyhow, I'm still happy with what I got from my last AK48.. but on a scale from 1 to 10? I'd give it an 8.5
just thought I would share my review.
