Alaskan Thunder (ATF for short) strain originates from the Matanuska Valley in Alaska and its Sativagenetics are somewhat of a mystery. Being a Sativa, this strain really only affects your head and is a popular choice of medication for medical marijuana patients suffering from chronic migraines, PTSD, sleep disorders, and more.
Alaskan Thunder strain is known for its ability to create a soaring, cerebral head-high. It can definitely take your mind for a ride, so you may want to start with low quantities (1-2 puffs) if you are a first-time patient who is afraid of experiencing any sort of paranoia.
Alaskan Thunder should be considered a morning or day-time Sativa due to its peaceful, uplifting nature. This strain always makes me feel more talkative than normal, and even more intellectual at times, due to its deep, thought-inducing high.
The smell from ATF is amazing and deserves an award on its own; it reminds me of frosty pine or menthol… with a fresh lemon scent.
Alaskan Thunder, the buds are all very nicely grown except for the one small bud could use slightly better trimming. Other than that, Alaskan Thunder marijuana reminded me most of Jack Herer (taste, smoke, aroma) with a more intense (cerebral) head high. This strain is definitely one of my top 3 favorite Sativas of all-time.
