Alaskan Thunderfuck is an extremely potent Sativa strain, which is also often known as the Matanuska Thunder Fuck as it originates in the Matanuska Valley of Alaska. Cannabis legends have it that the strain was developed by initially crossing a Northern California sativa with Russian ruderalis, but later in the 70s found itself compounded with Afghani genetics as well.
ATF comes in the form of large frosted buds and has sharp odors of lemon, menthol, pine and skunk. It relaxes its consumers and then eases them towards a euphoric high. Many describe Alaskan Thunderfuck to have a “creeper high”, boosting your appetite. The 15.5% THC content cannabis strain is considered to be a good choice for daytime consumption as it not only helps you start your day on a happy and relaxed note but also improves your concentration and focus. ATF may be effective in countering stress, anxiety, depression and even pain.
