This strain has a very pale and “creamy” look, with its orange creamsicle-colored pistils and moderate trichome coverage. It wasn’t very dense, but it was nicely dried and well-textured overall. Probably the best looking sample we’ve gotten from Green Belly yet.
It’s rare that a strain lived up to its uber-fruity name, but that’s what we have here, as this AK had a very distinct and undeniable fresh (one said “overripe”) lime smell with just a hint of sweetness and a vegetal tinge. When ground, the lime attributes were even more clear, and overwhelmed the other smells, though it was never all that pungent overall.
Mostly a bit woody and earthy-tasting on the palate, the flavor from this strain was a bit disappointing after the super-distinct lime smell — there was a little it of lime flavor on the inhale, but it was overwhelmed by the woodiness. However, the strain’s namesake became more clear on the aftertaste, with a distinctly sweet taste that made one reviewer think of Maraschino cherries. The smoke was not expansive but had a bit of harshness to it and it burned away to a mottled light gray ash.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Energy, mental clarity, anti-depression, motivation, mild pain relief/masking, possible ocular relief, appetite stimulation.
Tied with the Velvet Haze, this is our favorite sample to date from Green Belly. This fruity phenotype of the legendary AK-47 provided us with an amazingly Sativa-dominant experience that had us feeling motivated and energetic for hours. It did have a slightly relaxing and pain/tension-relieving stage, but that was definitely in the background. While it won’t “wow” most people with its appearance, if you are a Sativa lover, definitely give this strain a try the next time you’re out in the mountains near Boulder.
