Description

An extremely powerful Sativa-dominant strain with an odd musky fruit-meets-chocolate taste and smell package, the ATF originated in Alaska in the 1970’s but retains its popularity to this day.

Lineage

Northern California Sativa and Afghani genetic lines, possibly containing Oaxacan Gold and/or Original Haze

Story

Originally called “Matanuska Valley Thunder Fuck”, this strain became popular back in the mid 1970’s 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 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 1980’s, at times being protected by the Hell’s Angels.

Aroma

Musky fruit with a light sweetness

Flavor

Much like the smell, it has lightly sweet but musky fruit flavors and an interesting smooth chocolatey quality

Qualities

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 hang on for the ride. Strong body relaxation and mood elevation combine with appetite stimulation and ocular relief to make ATF a particularly medicinal Sativa.

Grow Medium

Flowers late and long outdoors, but normally speeds up when grown indoors. The structure has definite Afghani influences, but the flowers tend to be foxtailed with thick, ropey pistils that retain their thickness and prominence when dried. ATF will take rather strong feeding and produce well.

About this Sativa Strain

The amusingly named cannabis strain named Alaskan Thunder Fuck (aka Matanuska Thunder Fuck) is a sativa whose fragrance is diesel-like with a chocolate undertone. Some have reviewed this strain to have a pungent spicy, floral scent with a citrusy undertone. When harvest-ready its leaves are large and pale green, with dense spear-shaped buds covered in orange hairs and sticky white crystals.

Alaskan Thunder Fuck first blossomed in Matanuska Valley north of Anchorage, Alaska and is the daughter of indica Afghani and Northern California Sativa.

Its THC content averages between 12-15%. Its high is described as fast-acting, long-lasting, and relieves aches throughout the body as well as increasing appetite. It can create cerebral activity, enhancing social engagements and creativity for some. However, this strain has been widely known to be used medically since its birth in the 70s.

It gained recognition when it won placement in the CBD section of the 2011 High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in San Francisco, California.

If you’ve limited growing space, Alaskan Thunder Fuck is a good strain to grow since its mature plants are on the small side comparatively.
