About Alaskan Thunderfuck
Alaskan Thunder Fuck is an extremely powerful Sativa-dominant strain with an odd musky fruit-meets-chocolate taste and smell package, the ATF originated in Alaska in the 1970s but retains its popularity to this day.
Alaskan Thunder Fuck (also referred to as ATF, Matanuska Thunder Fuck, or Matanuska Tundra) is a legendary Sativa marijuana 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. Alaskan Thunder Fuck usually presents large, beautifully frosted buds with incredibly strong odors of pine, lemon, menthol, and skunk. Known for possessing a relaxing yet intensely euphoric high, it is also described as having a “creeper” effect as well as pronounced appetite enhancement.
Northern California Sativa and Afghani genetic lines, possibly containing Oaxacan Gold and/or Original Haze
Originally called “Matanuska Valley Thunder Fuck”, this strain became popular back in the mid-1970s when High Times magazine did a story on the strain following the court decision that essentially legalized marijuana possession in Alaska. Shortening the name to the more friendly Matanuska Thunder Fuck, the strain eventually became known as Alaskan Thunderfuck by the non-native speakers who heard the tale and traveled to Alaska to experience it for themselves. Originally a much more Sativa-dominant plant, it had more Afghani bred in for heartiness. The original clones went underground following DEA raids in the 1980s, at times being protected by the Hell’s Angels.
Musky fruit with a light sweetness
Much like the smell, it has lightly sweet but musky fruit flavors and an interesting smooth chocolatey quality
Overwhelmingly potent at times for some users, the ATF packs a strong Sativa punch that uplifts the mood but often leaves the user with no ability to do anything other than hanging on for the ride. Strong body relaxation and mood elevation combine with appetite stimulation and ocular relief to make ATF a particularly medicinal Sativa.
Flowers late and long outdoors, but normally speeds up when grown indoors. The structure has definite Afghani influences, but the flowers tend to be fox-tailed with thick, ropey pistils that retain their thickness and prominence when dried. ATF will take rather a strong feeding and produce well.
