Alaskan Thunder Fuck Seeds – Strain History
Alaskan Thunder Fuck cannabis strain is a potent 60/40 sativa dominant hybrid that originates from Matanuska Valley north of Anchorage, Alaska. ATF has been a part of the Alaskan cannabis scene for more than 40 years and depending on where you are it may go by another name such as Matanuska Thunder Fuck or similar variations.
Alaskan Thunder Fuck can be described as a sativa-dominant hybrid that has fruity and skunky flavors, with a complex piney aroma. The strain is a cross of a Northern California sativa with old school Afghani and Ruderalis added to the mix.
Alaska Thunder Fuck buds are medium-sized, chunky, and solid as a rock. They have a tapered arrowhead shape with soft green-colored leaves. Glowing orange pistils decorate the flowers and a dense blanket of trichomes covers the inner and outer surfaces making them sticky and challenging to break up without the use of a grinder.
When properly cured, Alaskan Thunder Fuck smells like pine needles and damp earth. Much like backpacking through the Alaskan bush. There is a funky skunk and cat piss smell when you squeeze the buds. When it comes to smoking the strain, you could not imagine anything better. ATF has a strong banana and orange taste with chocolatey and petrol notes.
When burned, Alaskan Thunder Fuck hits you with a sharp and expansive smoke. Some find it to be a little intense but most attribute this to the high potency of the strain.
Alaskan Thunder Fuck Terpenes
ATF is high in terpenes that provide sedating effects, particularly linalool and caryophyllene. Alaska Thunder Fuck has a pleasant woody scent with hints of pine, lemon, menthol, and skunk. The main terpenes are linalool, pinene, myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene. Users will appreciate the uplifting, euphoric effect of ATF’s terpenes while enjoying heightened energy with a subtle underlying relaxation.
ATF’s THC content averages between 16-23%. The high is described as fast-acting, enduring, and relieves aches throughout the entire body as well as increasing the appetite.
The Alaskan Thunder Fuck strain is known for its ability to create a soaring, cerebral head-high. It will surely take your mind on an adventure, so you may want to start with a low dosage. The CBD content found in most samples is around 0.3%.
The buzz doesn’t waste any time getting started but it also continues to build steadily during the first 30-40 minutes after smoking. The high is quite different from other strains you may be familiar with. In smaller doses ATF is great for daytime use but, when you’re ready to journey into the deep end, a few more puffs will put you down for the night.
Growing Alaskan Thunder Fuck Seeds
Alaskan Thunder Fuck cannabis thrives in cooler outdoor gardens, specifically in the northern regions. ATF plants produce a large central cola, for which the SOG growing method can be beneficial.
Indoor plants will take about 9 weeks to mature and yield an average of 16oz/m2. When growing ATF outdoors, we recommend germinating in early spring and plant in an area with lots of morning sunshine. Alaskan Thunder Fuck yields roughly 32 ounces per plant outdoors and can be ready for harvest by late October.
