The smell from ATF is amazing and deserves an award on its own; it reminds me of frosty pine or menthol… with a fresh lemon scent.
To the naked eye, the buds are all very nicely grown except for the one small bud could use slightly better trimming. Other than that, Alaskan Thunder marijuana reminded me most of Jack Herer (taste, smoke, aroma) with a more intense (cerebral) head high. This strain is definitely one of my top 3 favorite Sativas of all-time.
The Alaskan Thunder (ATF for short) strain originates from the Matanuska Valley in Alaska and its Sativa genetics are somewhat of a mystery. Being a Sativa, this strain really only affects your head and is a popular choice of medication for medical marijuana patients suffering from chronic migraines, PTSD, sleep disorders, and more.
Alaskan Thunderfuck is a Sativa-dominant with a complicated genetic history. It is said to have originated in Alaska’s Matanuska Valley as a cross between an unnamed Northern California strain and an unnamed Russian ruderalis (a less-seen genus of cannabis distinct from either indica or sativa). The child of these two strains was then crossed with an Afghani indica landrace to yield the potent staple that we know as Alaskan Thunderfuck. This strain confers a strong sense of mental focus alongside some subtle physical relaxation. Flower of Alaskan Thunderfuck have been tested at between 13% and 27%.
Alaskan Thunderfuck sets itself apart with chunky buds that are medium to large in size and have a tapered, spade-like appearance. The leaves, which are a pale shade of sea green, have a fluffy look and feel and can be easily torn away from their central stems. Vibrant orange pistils wind their way through these piecey leaves. Finally, a dense blanket of trichomes covers the inner and outer surfaces of the flowers, making them sticky and particularly hard to break up without the help of a grinder.
The Alaskan Thunder strain is known for its ability to create a soaring, cerebral head-high. It can definitely take your mind for a ride, so you may want to start with low quantities (1-2 puffs) if you are a first-time patient who is afraid of experiencing any sort of paranoia.
Alaskan Thunder should be considered a morning or day-time Sativa due to its peaceful, uplifting nature. This strain always makes me feel more talkative than normal, and even more intellectual at times, due to its deep, thought-inducing high.
