Medical 49 is a high CBD strain based on AK-49, Skunk No.1, and Russian Snow. THC levels are comparatively low, with 8%, and in perfect balance with 8% of CBD. This gives Medical 49 a higher effectiveness when treating health problems like chronic pain, nausea or anxiety issues. The high features mild uplifting effects but is mostly calming, by reducing tension and stress.
Vision Seeds – Medical 49: Short flowering period and genetics of AK-47
Medical 49 was created by crossing genetics of Russian Snow, Skunk No.1, and AK-49 (AK-47). Russian Snow consists of genetics from White Widow and AK-47. Crossbreeding indica-dominant Russian Snow with AK-49 increased the influence of AK-47 even more. This might be relevant for medicinal users, since genetics of AK-47 are often used by people suffering from chronic pain, nausea, arthritis, PMS, depression, insomnia, or anxiety.
Medical 49 remains indica-dominant, with 70%, despite the strong influence coming from the genetics of AK-47. Growers won’t have to fear much stretching, and can expect plants that grow into a compact Indica structure, with overall plant heights of about 70-80cm. Medical 49 is not particularly a high-yielding strain, with indoor yields of 300g/m² ready for harvest after a short flowering period of approximately 60 days.
Recreational smokers and medical users can both profit from a well balanced THC to CBD ratio of 1:1, and average THC and CBD levels of 8%. The 30% Sativa genetics of Medical 49 are responsible for mild uplifting effects, which harmonize great with a calming and relaxing body stone, coming from indica-dominant Russian Snow.
Medical cannabis users knowingly need to go through a process of finding a strain that fits their preferences and individual medical condition. Medical 49 by Vision Seeds can be a very good starting point. The effect will not only put the body in a relaxed state by releasing tension, the uplifting and rather mild cerebral high works as a non-synthesized mood stabilizer, which can lead to an increase of life quality for people suffering from health problems in general.
