Named after the capital of PEI, “Charlottetown Sunrise” (by Canada’s Island Garden) is a deceptively tame name, considering its potency. Unlike the serene city, this sativa strain packs a punch. Charlottetown Sunrise contains 23.7% THC and zero CBD. With this in mind, the psychoactive effects can be quite debilitating. Users should avoid medicating if they need to drive, operate machinery or perform other daily tasks. Ideally, this is best used as a nighttime medication. The product is said to have an “earthy” and sweet flavor, with wood undertones.Chemical Formula of Product:

Medical users find that Charlottetown Sunrise works well for helping with anxiety, depression, fatigue, poor appetite, pain and stress.

Terpenes make up a huge component of this strain’s beneficial effects. The list is as follows:
• Myrcene – A fragrant terpene responsible for giving the product an herb-like scent.
• A/B Pinene – Terpene responsible for adding a pine-like aroma to cannabis (and other plants). Also acts as an anti-inflammatory, bronchiodialator, memory aid and neural stimulant (improves alertness).
• B-Caryophyllene – Spicy terpene resembling the taste of black pepper. Effective as an anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, analgesic, anti-anxiety, cancer inhibitor and even reduces alcohol cravings in addicts.
• No additional chemicals or contaminants
Although beneficial, there are some side effects that Charlottetown Sunrise (AK-47) users should be aware of:
• Dry eyes
• Dry mouth
The first recorded incidence of cannabis use dates back to ancient China in 6,000 B.C.E. Cannabis seeds were used as food. In 2727 B.C.E., China also pioneered cannabis’ use as a medicine. Despite its long history in the Far East, the plant did not reach Europe until 430 B.C. E.
Charlottetown Sunrise is a derivative of the more commonly-known AK-47 sativa strain. Its ancestry can be traced back as far as the 1970s; however, AK-47 itself didn’t exist until 1992.
