Alaskan Thunderfuck Strain
Alaskan Thunderfuck is a Sativa dominant hybrid that’s become the stuff of legend in the western U.S. cannabis scene. It also goes by ATF, Matanuska Thunderfuck, and Matanuska Tundra. But whatever you call it, this strain delivers a distinctive and intense head high that will change your world.
This strain usually produces some pretty potent buds. Most will range somewhere between 15% THC and 33% THC. It can be a pretty hard hitter, so if you’re a newbie go slow.
ATF is known for giving users a powerful head high that’s accompanied by a deep sense of relaxation and euphoria. A lot of people call this strain a “creeper” strain. That’s because the effects creep up on you and set in gradually.
Don’t go too crazy if you’re not feeling high after a few puffs. Just be patient, and you’ll eventually start feeling an intense and long-lasting head high rounded out by a body buzz that will make you feel both relaxed and energized.
Scent & Flavor
When you start breaking apart an Alaskan Thunderfuck bud, expect the smell of earth, pine, citrus, flowers, and a bit of skunk. The smoke will be fairly thick and will coat your mouth and throat. The taste will be mostly sweet with smooth earthy undertones.
Because this one’s so strong, it can be easy to get a little too blasted. When that happens you may feel dizzy or paranoid, and you might also get a headache.
If you take it in relatively smaller doses, Alaskan Thunderfuck can be a good daytime strain. But if it affects you too much in your head you might want to save it for the afternoon or evening. If you dose it right, ATF can be a perfect daytime strain that will help you feel energized, focused, and creative.
The powerful and euphoric head highs produced by this strain make it a solid choice for treating stress, depression, and other mood disorders. The sense of relaxation it brings can also help some patients deal with chronic aches and pains.
ATF’s family tree is kind of obscure, and there are a bunch of rumors and legends about where this strain came from. Here’s what we know for sure. It first started out as a cross between a Northern California Sativa and a Russian ruderalis. Then, sometime during the 1970s, breeders added an Afghani strain to the mix.
Alaskan Thunderfuck probably isn’t the best choice for beginning growers. It can be kind of picky and a little bit high maintenance. It does not like humidity and doesn’t do well with changes to its climate. But if you can give this plant exactly what it’s looking for you can expect some pretty good harvests. Flowers will be bright green and super frosty.
