AK-47 Black Label Shatter Information
This AK-47 Black Label Shatter is one of the most energetic and cerebral of the Black Label Shatter line. Though the AK-47 strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid (65%/45%) with strong cerebral effects, the indica phenotypes provide long-lasting relaxation and relief. AK-47 is an ambitious cross of Afghani, Columbian, Mexican and Thai strains. As a result, it has a strong sour scent and a sweet skunk and pine taste. Those who suffer from symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue and mood disorders are often drawn to AK-47 for its stimulating and energetic effects. It provides enhanced focus and creativity while also relaxing muscles and increasing calm. This calm is likely a result of the CBD and CBN content, both of which are strongly present.
A winner of multiple awards, including 3rd place at Canada’s Cannabis Cup in 2018, multiple second-place awards at High Time’s Cannabis Cups (1999,2003), and AK-47 came in first place for Sativa’s at the 2010 Treating Yourself Expo. This AK-47 Black Label Shatter is made from fresh AK-47 cannabis flower grown right here in beautiful British Columbia.

What is Shatter?
Shatter is one of the many varieties of Cannabis Concentrate. Above all, it is by far and away the most appropriately named. Shatter has a brittle, glass-like consistency. For instance, extractors pour and set Shatter just like stained glass during the extraction process. It can range from light amber to dark oily green in appearance. Be sure to be extra careful when handling Shatter. Just like glass, it will break very easily.
From appearance alone, all Shatter can look the same. However, there is a subtle variation in textures, some being more brittle, while others have a dried taffy consistency. As a result, this variation can help determine the Cannabinoids present in the final product.
Shatter that contains a higher THC count will usually have a thinner consistency and be less brittle. At room temperature, THC is a liquid-like oil, while THCA remains brittle. Concentrates with a much more fragile consistency are commonly higher in THCA, making them easier to break up. Some producers make a CBD dominant version, usually designed for medicinal purposes.
