Alaskan Thunder Fuck, also known as ATF or Matanuska Thunderfuck, originates from the Matanuska Valley north of Anchorage, Alaska. This sativa hybrid is one of the most popular strains from the 1970’s and its bold name makes it hard to forget. This heavy bud creeps up on you providing a monster body buzz and uplifting head high. ATF lasts a long time and the intensity seems to progress with time. This full bodied hybrid is a cross between Haze, Northern Lights, Skunk and Highland Oaxaca Gold.
Since many marijuana strains hail from the tropics or specific breeding hubs, it’s no surprise that this Alaskan Thunder Fuck hybrid’s name celebrates its origins. Developed from strains grown in Matanuska Valley’s grasslands, the flowers on these plants develop a frosting of icy white hairs that bring to mind its snowy homeland. Despite its rugged roots, these Alaskan Thunder Fuck plants do best indoors but will still yield well in outdoor dry climates for the experienced grower. They will remain
squat in size but tend to have very large leaves. This strain smells like hot chocolate with fruit, the latter of which can dominate the taste. Matanuska’s effects tend to come on slowly and then give a strong body buzz. It also goes by the less colorful name Matanuska Tundra, especially outside of the United States.
