Widowmaker is a cross between two landraces – a Brazilian Sativa and a South Indian Indica. Although its effects lean towards the cerebral, with an energizing and lucid buzz, the mental stimulation is complemented by a soothing body high. Since its release in the Netherlands back in the 90s, it has gained many fans not only in the local scene but throughout the world. Apart from serving as a genetic base for numerous other hybrids, it’s also one of the most recommended varieties for first-time home cultivators.
AK47, on the other hand, has a sinister-sounding name that alludes to devastating effects. Actually, it’s a surprisingly mellow cultivar that’ll leave you feeling profoundly relaxed. Like Widowmaker, its roots can be traced back to landraces: Colombian, Mexican, Thai and Afghani. Since its debut in the early 90s, it has gone on to win numerous cup awards.
For consumption, whether recreational or medical, either of these two cultivars is an excellent choice. But the results are even better when they’re combined in a single hybrid. Widowmaker Fast Version combines the best traits of the two varieties – high resin production and yield, exceptional psychedelic and medical properties, and a unique terpene profile that further boosts the efficacy of its effects.
This version from Homegrown Cannabis Co. also includes the genetics of an unnamed hybrid that was used to cut down the flowering period and produce more Indica-leaning traits. Instead of 8 to 9 weeks, the ‘Fast Version’ of White Widow x AK47 takes only 50 days (7 weeks). In a sense, this particular plant occupies the middle ground: it remains a photoperiod species while growing faster than usual. In spite of the short time that it takes to develop its buds, there’s no compromise on THC production.
This versatile, short-to-medium sized plant can be cultivated in the garden, in a greenhouse, or inside the house. Indoor cultivation is advised, because the controlled environment helps it to reach its full potential. From germination and throughout the rest of the growth cycle, the care and maintenance routine is the same as when using regular or feminized seeds. The temperature must be maintained around 78°F when the lights are on, and 70°F during hours of darkness. At the same time, the RH level must be kept between 40 and 50% to avoid pest and pathogen infestations.
Although it’s not quite an auto, the plant has a rapid flowering period of only seven weeks. Before switching to the bloom phase, exposing it to colder temperatures activates enzymes that produce purple pigments. While the coloration does not have a bearing on the cannabinoid and terpene profile, it adds to the bag appeal of both the plant itself and the buds. Once harvest time comes, expect a yield in the range of 1.15 – 1.63 ounces per square foot.
Despite its fast flowering nature, cultivating this plant outdoors does not result in an early harvest. It’s still reliant on the natural light cycle and thus matures only by October in the northern hemisphere and April in the southern hemisphere. There are benefits at harvest time, though, with each plant producing up to 17.6 ounces.
White Widow x AK47 Fast Version has a pungent, earthy aroma with woody notes. The fruitiness usually associated with Widowmaker Fast Version is not present in this cross.
Getting through the day can be challenging, especially when you’re feeling melancholic or lethargic. During these trying times when you need an enlivening boost, consider White Widow x AK47. Its initial cerebral rush is invigorating enough to allow the completion of last-minute tasks. Gradually, it brings the body to complete relaxation as the end of the day approaches.
The herb’s influence is powerful but heavenly if enjoyed in the right dosage. It sends an uplifting wave of positivity that drowns out sorrows and worries. With one swift stroke, it also clears the head and enhances the ability to focus.
Gradually, the more dominant Indica properties take over, and the ‘buzzing’ mental high starts to invade the body. As the physically calming sensation spreads from the spine towards the extremities, tension leaves the body and the muscles relax.
In general, White Widow x AK47 gives consumers a taste of what White Widow can do, showcasing some of the reasons it’s been a staple of Dutch coffee shops for more than two decades. Once the physical high kicks in, the AK47 influence becomes more pronounced.
Overconsumption may cause adverse effects beyond the usual dry eyes, dry mouth, dizziness, or headache. If too much is taken, some people may feel paranoid or anxious, so you should always be mindful of the dosage – and never underestimate its potency.
This cultivar takes the best traits of White Widow – namely, the ability to deliver an energizing buzz along with incredible resin production – and transplants them into a new plant that grows like an Indica. Providing a superb body high, it has the added benefit of a better cannabinoid profile, courtesy of AK47.
These ‘Fast Version’ seeds from Homegrown Cannabis Co. have a rapid flowering time of only seven weeks when cultivated indoors. That means you can get your hands on a top-quality stash of buds in record time.
