The only appropriate way to start the review for Alaskan Thunder Fuck is to admit that this strain is RIDICULOUS… just like its’ name. The strain originates from the Matanuska Valley in Alaska and its Sativa genetics are somewhat of a mystery. Being a Sativa, this strain really only really effects your head and is thought to be a popular choice of medication for chronic migraines, PTSD, among other head-related illnesses.
ATF will create a peaceful haze that will probably bring a smile to your face. This strain is also known to take your mind for a ride. It makes you want to plan for the future but not actually do anything because there are so many ideas going on in your head. Makes whatever it is you are doing seem important and allows you to focus on living in and enjoying the moment. Of course, I say all of this hoping you are similar to me.
The smoke from ATF is smooth, delicious, and somehow coats your throat instantly (protecting you from the heat element) like all great strains seem to do.
Alaskan Thunder Fuck should be considered a morning or day-time Sativa due to it’s uplifting nature. This strain always makes me feel more talkative, more intellectual (deep thought-inducing high), and seems to really speed my brain up rather than slow it down. The smell is amazing and deserves an award on its own; frosty pine on a winter night… with a slight scent of lemon.
To the naked eye, the buds are all very nicely grown except for the one small bud could use slightly better trimming (see bottom left of photo where leaves are). Other than that, Alaskan Thunder Fuck reminded us most of Jack Herer (taste, smoke, aroma) with a more intense high. This strain is definitely one of my top 3 favorite Sativas of all-time. The official wake and bake strain of choice for the next week.
