The names Alaskan Thunderfuck and Matanuska Thunderfuck have been widely used to refer to any high-quality cannabis grown in the Matanuska Valley. But there is also a specific strain that is identified by either of these names.
Adding to this confusion, several seed banks have offered seeds under the names Alaskan Thunderfuck, Matanuska Thunderfuck, and Matanuska Tundra, most of which are Indica-dominant, unlike the classic, Sativa-dominant Alaskan Thunderfuck. These seeds are mostly likely derived either from crosses of the original strain, indica-dominant phenotypes, other Alaskan strains such as Kodiak Gold, or imitation hybrids.
True Alaskan Thunderfuck offers a powerful Sativa effect but grows like an indica
This old school strain comes from a Northern California Sativa that was combined with Russian Ruderalis. A few years later, Afghani genetics were added, resulting in a hardy plant that prefers a cool, dry environment. Due to the Ruderalis, auto-flowering has been known to occur, particularly when growing outdoors.
These neon green buds have a fruity and musky aroma - many report grape and chocolate notes in the flavor
Alaskan Thunderfuck is revered for its unique ability to impart an uplifting, energetic sativa effect along with a simultaneous heavy stoned sensation. The incredible potency is not immediately apparent, giving the strain a reputation as a "creeper" that gradually builds to an intense, long-lasting cerebral head high along with physical relaxation. It's conversational and euphoric, stimulates appetite, and is a great option for treating depression, anxiety, headaches, or chronic pain.
