Kalashnikov Seeds started working on AK Skunk by crossbreeding AK-47 with the Skunk strain in the 2000's and by the year 2005 they finally stabilized the genetics and got a reliable stable hybrid strain.
Reinforced with a little bit of Sativa from the Russian Far East, which resulted in a next generation hybrid with bigger crops and better qualities all in all.
The flowering lasts about 7 to 8 weeks, by the end of October outdoors.
AK Skunk contains enormous amounts of THC, the effects are very Sativa-like, with a stimulating, heady note to it. The plants are usually very smelly, so the aroma may be a concern for those growing outdoors. Indoor growers should use a good filtration system.
