Alaskan Thunder Fuck, also known as ATF, is a legendary sativa-dominant strain of Cannabis. It's extremely rare; so rare, in fact, that it's almost impossible to get your hands on its genetics. Most people will never come across this marijuana in their lifetimes. Here's a little information about it:
The History of Alaskan Thunder Fuck
ATF is believed to have originated in Alaska's Matanuska Valley area. Legend has it that it was initially crossed with a Russian ruderalis and a Northern California sativa strain.
During the 1970s, there was a desire to create a strain that made users more cheerful. So, it was crossed once more with Afghani genetics. And Alaskan Thunder Fuck was born, straight from the cold climate of the Last Frontier.
It soon took on two more nicknames… Matanuska Tundra and Matanuska Thunder Fuck, both derived from Matanuska Valley, the strain's native.

Tips for Growing Alaskan Thunder Fuck Marijuana
Because ATF is a native of Alaska, it's known to survive cold weather when grown outdoors. However, your plants will still need plenty of exposure to the sun, as well as excellent plant food, to thrive in colder climates.
These Cannabis plants are moderately difficult to grow both indoors and outdoors. But ideally, this strain prefers cool to moderate climates with temperatures between 65-80 degrees Fahrenheit.
When growing these plants in cold climates, you'll need to provide the proper nutrients for them to grow large and yield big. Make sure you have nutrient-rich soils with high amounts of microorganisms and nitrogen for healthy outdoor plants.
Experts also suggest growing these Cannabis plants in trenches versus using pots. Trenches help keep your plants' roots warm when temperatures are cold. To quickly mature your buds, use silica to help them reach their full potential.
ATF Flowering Time & Yields
When planting Alaskan Thunderfuck seeds indoors, expect a flowering time of about 8-9 weeks. At harvest time, on average, these plants produce 16 ounces of usable Cannabis per square meter.
Growing ATF outdoors creates much more massive yields. Your buds will be bold and beautiful, featuring pretty orange hairs and covered with bright crystals. Outdoor growers have been known to yield about 32 ounces of usable marijuana per plant. Harvest time will occur sometime around October.
