ALASKAN THUNDER FUCK
Alaskan Thunder Fuck (also referred to as ATF, Matanuska Thunder Fuck or Matanuska Tundra) is a legendary sativa-dominant strain originating in the Matanuska Valley area of Alaska. According to the legend, it was originally a Northern California sativa crossed with a Russian ruderalis, but sometime in the late 70s it was crossed with Afghani genetics to make it heartier. ATF usually presents large, beautifully frosted buds with incredibly strong odors of pine, lemon, menthol, and skunk.
ABOUT ALASKAN THUNDER FUCK
The Alaskan Thunder (ATF for short) strain originates from the Matanuska Valley in Alaska and its Sativa genetics are somewhat of a mystery. Being a Sativa, this strain really only affects your head and is a popular choice of medication for medical marijuana patients suffering from chronic migraines, PTSD, sleep disorders, and more.
It can definitely take your mind for a ride, so you may want to start with low quantities (1-2 puffs), if you are a first-time patient who is afraid of experiencing any sort of paranoia.
Alaskan Thunderfuck is a sativa-dominant with a complicated genetic history. It is said to have originated in Alaska’s Matanuska Valley as a cross between an unnamed Northern California strain and an unnamed Russian ruderalis (a less-seen genus of cannabis distinct from either indica or sativa). This strain confers a strong sense of mental focus alongside some subtle physical relaxation. Flower of Alaskan Thunderfuck have been tested at between 13% and 27%.
OUR PRODUCT EFFECTS
When properly cured, Alaskan Thunderfuck has a primarily woodsy aroma, redolent of pine and cedar. There are also base notes of damp earth, along with an indefinable nutty, chocolate-like scent. Only closer inspection, hints of lemon are present as well. When combusted, Alaskan Thunderfuck burns with a funky, acrid smoke that some may find objectionable or harsh. On the exhale, this smoke leaves behind an astringent ammonia tang accented by a lingering sour lemon taste. Smokers should keep in mind that this can be a very pungent strain when burnt; those looking to maintain discretion should take any needed precautions.
In its later stages, Alaskan Thunderfuck may enhance more active pursuits like hiking; it can even be a strong aphrodisiac.
THE HIGH OF ALASKAN THUNDER FUCK
Alaskan Thunderfuck’s wide-ranging effects can also have application for medical cannabis patients. Its long-lasting lucidity may help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain focus on a single task. Its subtle mood enhancement can benefit users with mild to moderate stress and depression, leading them to spend their time more presently and mindfully. Physiological effects include some anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe headaches or nausea.
Many companies have produced seeds of this famous strain and made them available for sale online. As is typical of sativas, it has a long flowering time of about 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors; grown outdoors, it is ready for harvest in mid-October. Alaskan Thunderfuck offers growers a high yield in reward for their efforts.
Revered among cannabis consumers, Alaskan Thunderfuck has even lent its name to drag queen superstar Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 (who, for propriety’s sake, simply goes by Alaska).
