This strain is an indica-heavy cross of Granddaddy Purps and Red beard, though its exact sativa/indica ratio isn't widely known. Despite the indica dominance, Purple Red Beard delivers a complex combination of head and body effects: physical relaxation, sleepiness, happiness, euphoria, and an intense tingly sensation. It has many medical uses, including treatment for anxiety, depression, eye pressure, headaches, inflammation, chronic pain, insomnia, and stress. Purple AK-47 contains 18% plus THC, making it a relatively potent choice for medical users. CBD levels, on the other hand, are less than 2%, so this strain isn't an ideal tool in treating seizure disorders or other conditions that respond to that chemical. The smell and flavor of Purple AK-47 have sweet notes of honey, pine trees, and plums, while the nugs are bright green and purple with brown hairs and a layer of crystals.
