Alaskan Thunderfuck is a sativa-dominant with a complicated genetic history. It is said to have originated in Alaska’s Matanuska Valley as a cross between an unnamed Northern California strain and an unnamed Russian ruderalis (a less-seen genus of cannabis distinct from either indica or sativa). The child of these two strains was then crossed with an Afghani indica landrace to yield the potent staple that we know as Alaskan Thunderfuck. This strain confers a strong sense of mental focus alongside some subtle physical relaxation.
The high from Alaskan Thunderfuck is something of a creeper, often waiting until users have finished coughing or wiping away their smoke-induced tears to make its effects fully known. Smokers may detect by a gradually mounting alteration of the senses, with certain sights or sounds taking on a dynamic new significance. Once users acclimate to the change, this cerebral mindset lends itself to deep analytical thinking that can be valuable for working on problem-solving scenarios or as an accompaniment to free-wheeling creative brainstorming. In a more relaxed set and setting, Alaskan Thunderfuck can be a great complement to trippy music, as well as to engaging conversation between friends. As the high wears on, some subtle physical tingling sets in, although these effects are unlikely to cause disorientation or couchlock. In its later stages, Alaskan Thunderfuck may enhance more active pursuits like hiking; it can even be a strong aphrodisiac. A consummate sativa, Alaskan Thunderfuck is a good option for the user who wants to maintain a clear head while going about their day. While it makes a great wake-and-bake strain, this is not a flower to be savored just before bed, as it’s liable to leave smokers wide-eyed and wired. A small dose of this potent hybrid can go a long way, even for more experienced cannabis users.
Alaskan Thunderfuck’s wide-ranging effects can also have application for medical cannabis patients. Its long-lasting lucidity may help those with attention deficit disorders to sustain focus on a single task. Its subtle mood enhancement can benefit users with mild to moderate stress and depression, leading them to spend their time more presently and mindfully. Physiological effects include some anti-inflammatory properties that can soothe headaches or nausea. Because its cerebral onset may lead to an out-of-control feeling of “mind race,” Alaskan Thunderfuck is not recommended for those who are prone to panic or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Revered among cannabis consumers, Alaskan Thunderfuck has even lent its name to drag queen superstar Alaska Thunderfuck 5000 (who, for propriety’s sake, simply goes by Alaska). With a complex, surprising flavor profile and a lasting head high, it’s no wonder that this is one of the most popular sativas in circulation today.
