Alaskan Thunderfuck Strain Review

The Alaskan Thunderfuck comes from a rich and unique heritage. Though it is vague as to how this hybrid came into being, experts say that it originated from Matanuska Valley in Alaska. This Sativa dominant plant is a cross between a North American strain and a Russian Ruderalis. In the late 70s, Afghani genetics were introduced to make it better.

This strain mainly affects the head thus resulting in a fun cerebral high. It takes people a ride back to the valleys in Alaska, seeing all the pretty colors in vivid view. Alaskan Thunderfuck starts with a big buzz that induces very happy atmosphere. Some people even say that after adding the Afghani genetics, this hybrid became heartier.

The Alaskan Thunderfuck is a great daytime strain that will not give groggy and head-heavy psychoactive effects to beginners. Immediately after inhaling it, users can sit back and enjoy a hell of a ride.

Alaskan Thunderfuck is also called (or spelled as) ATF, Matanuska Thunder Fuck, and Matanuska Tundra.

Odor and Flavors

Alaskan Thunderfuck is not a typical sweet-smelling strain. So, expect a pungent, diesel-like fragrance mixed with the fresh smell of earth. Accompanying its unique aroma is the smell of pine wood that is reminiscent of being in a forest on a mountainous slope.

For some people, they may have to take a little bit of time getting used to its scent that some find musky. However, after one puff, a sharp pine and citrusy lingering aftertaste contrast with some of the aroma that carries over making for a pleasant use. Adding to the experience and making it easy on the throat is a menthol flavor that kicks in during exhalation.

Adverse Reactions

Even if the effects of Alaskan Thunderfuck is quite potent, it never takes one over the edge. Hence, the only discomfort a beginner can experience is to have dry mouth and eyes. So, having some water on hand is a big help.

However, if one were to use too much, then other adverse reactions may occur. For instance, some may feel a bit paranoid and nervous. Others may feel dizzy or nauseous. In most cases, these symptoms go away as the effects of the strain start to subside.

Medical Use and Benefits

Aside from this strain’s uplifting nature, it also helps ward all sorts of stress symptoms. Depressed patients love this weed because it helps clear the mind and replace ill thoughts with happy ones. People who have anxiety, PTSD and migraines can better find comfort with its euphoric buzz.

For those who have trouble sleeping, this strain works wonders. With its calming and soothing effects, preparing users to dreamland is a natural occurrence.

Alaskan Thunderfuck can also increase appetite especially for patients undergoing chemical treatments. As mentioned, drowsiness is one of the effects of the strain. Still, most people should have no problem getting up to eat some food.

Pain is also a target of the Alaskan Thunderfuck. Cancer patients are relieved of the constant body system and joint paints, as well as muscle spasms. It works mostly in mild cases, though, as it is more a psychological result rather than the sedative properties of the Indica side, of which this strain has very little of.

Finally, the energizing trait of this strain can help fight off lethargy and weakness.

Growing Alaskan Thunderfuck

Alaskan Thunderfuck thrives mainly in cold weather. Sometimes, it suits moderate climates with temperatures ranging from 18 to 24 degrees Celsius. Just like in the Alaskan valleys where it came from, this strain grows well outdoors but can also produce significantly indoors under specific temperatures.

Outdoors, this plant will want plenty of sunshine. It can also grow up to over 200cm tall with lateral branching. Though it can be a bit bushy, the plant can produce pretty buds covered with crystals and orange hairs. It is best placed in trenches to keep those roots warm during the cold weather. Flowering time occurs sometime in October with each plant producing up to 900 grams of buds.

Indoors, planting the Alaskan Thunderfuck in nutrient-rich soil yields as much as 450 grams per square meter and flowers in 9 to 10 weeks. Adding silica to the soil helps the buds in reaching their full potential before picking. Growers should also make sure that the temperature of the habitat should be kept low for the plant to grow well.

Hardneck Varieties-(Allium sativum ssp. ophioscorodon)

Hardnecks (Allium sativum ssp. ophioscorodon) are closer to wild garlic, with complex flavors. These are the garlics that some compare to wines with subtle differences that reflect the regional soil and weather patterns. One simple benefit to the cook is the way some of their skins slip off smoothly. Hardnecks do not store as long as softnecks—cure them, eat them within 6-10 months, and get to know their distinctive flavors.
