Alaskan Thunder Fuck
ATF for short, is an exquisite Sativa strain that originated within the harsh climates fo the Matanuska Valley in Alaska. The cannabis community knows it for its incredibly high THC concentrations. Due to the harsh conditions of the Alaskan climate, ATF has adapted to developing dense trichomes that can be seen on its surface. Many enthusiasts believe that ATF was originally a cross between a Northern-Cal sativa strain with a typical Russian reduralis. However, today’s ATF is a cross with afghani, making it more potent and remarkable.
Characteristics and Effects
Beautifully frosted nugs are the defining features of ATF. The sizes range from medium to large and sport a pale shade of green with vibrant orange pistils. The buds are coated in a dense layer of trichomes which make them particularly sticky and soft. The aroma has a strong earthiness smell that is emphasized by wood and pine, characteristic of the natural Alaskan climate. There are also undertones of a sort of nuttiness scent. During the smoke, many find this strain to be very pungent when burning, leaving a taste of ammonia and lemon. The smoke is quite heavy, therefore coughing is quite common.
