About Alaskan Thunder Fuck Seeds
Alaska isn’t the first place you think about when you dream up places for growing cannabis.
With freezing temperatures that linger throughout most of the year, the likelihood of most cannabis cultivars surviving a single night planted in Alaskan soil is low. Unless, of course, your seeds are forged from top ruderalis genetics and a bit of thunder.
Alaskan Thunder Fuck seeds are the result of an unlikely story with roots in Northern California. Somewhere along the line, an unknown NorCal grower discovered or hybridized a sativa-dominant ruderalis variety. Later, those seeds or clones ended up in Alaska’s Matanuska Valley.
If this is your first time discovering the ruderalis classification, think of it as the wild cousin of the indica and sativa families. Whereas many sativa and indica strains are specifically adapted to grow in warm temperatures, ruderalis strains are normally found in rugged climates with short growing seasons.
Their adaptation to the short growing season means that after just two to three weeks of vegetation, ruderalis cannabis plants automatically switch to flowering.
By now, you might have guessed that ruderalis plants sound a lot like autoflowering cannabis seeds. If so, you’re correct! Today’s breeders have begun hybridizing ruderalis strains with indicas and sativas to create autoflowering varieties of seeds that naturally require longer growing seasons.
So, with an understanding of ruderalis cannabis snug in your back pocket, it’s easy to see how Alaskan Thunder Fuck seeds thrived in Alaska’s short, and often harsh, growing season. The mystery Alaskan cultivator who received the ruderalis strain from NorCal is believed to have crossed it with an Afghani indica, further compacting an already short and stout strain.
The plant’s sheer robustness has given it fame and fortune with growers in similarly severe outdoor conditions. But, because it survives so well when the going gets tough, growers who give it ideal indoor conditions are in for a spectacular treat.

Growing Alaskan Thunder Fuck Seeds
There’s much fun to be had in growing Alaskan Thunder Fuck seeds. First, there’s the name — it never gets old. However, what’s even better is pulling down your first ATF strain harvest.
An unexpectedly frosty batch awaits you. Each nug looks topped with snow and ice from a frozen winter day at the North Pole. Getting those nugs will take a bit of effort on your part, but as all cannabis cultivators know, you get out what you put in.
So, focus on giving your plants love. Let’s dive into the details for successfully growing Alaskan Thunder Fuck seeds.
ATF strain seeds can present a few challenges to novice growers. For this reason, they’re rated as medium difficult to grow, but don’t let that put you off if you’re a first-timer.
Optimal Growing Conditions and Climate:
There’s been a lot of talk about Alaska, tundra ice, and freezing cold. What gives? Do Alaskan Thunder Fuck seeds only grow in a blizzard? Far from it, friend.
You don’t have to live in the Matanuska Tundra to plant these seeds and grow them well. Their adaptation to harsh environments means that Alaskan Thunder Fuck seeds will thrive almost anywhere that provides decent sunshine and soil for a few months.
Whether you grow them indoors or outdoors, Alaskan Thunder Fuck seeds like a moderate temperature range between 62°F and 80°F to take off. They’re much less picky about relative humidity levels than most indica and sativa strains, too.
Where the trickiness comes into play is during feeding. To survive in cold climates, Alaskan Thunder F seeds mature into nutrient-guzzling plants. They nosh on all the nutrients available because, like polar bears, they store that protective layer of food with them to live through lean times.
Your soil replicates natural, nutrient-dense organic soil conditions. Compost tea, spent coffee grounds, and microorganisms will all benefit your soil medium.
In general, flowering time lasts for 8 to 10 weeks.
While not an exceptionally heavy producer, Alaskan Thunder Fuck plants redeem your efforts with a medium yield of thick, coniferous buds.
Expect up to 350 grams per square meter indoors and 500 grams per plant outdoors.
Ruderalis plants like the ATF strain are short and compact. You can grow ATF strain seeds quite close together, just make sure to use SOG or SCROG canopy control techniques to avoid overcrowding.
Resistance to Pests and Mold:
Alaskan Thunder Fuck plants are highly resistant to pests and mold.
Strain Description and Properties
The Appearance of Alaskan Thunder Fuck Weed:
As you cup one hand and drop Matanuska Thunder buds into it with the other, you’ll be struck by this strain’s wild, raw beauty.
Unlike the manicured, almost artificial look of strains bred just for the dispensary, Matanuska Thunder nugs resemble the kind of weed Thor would smoke in Asgard. Its buds are majestic, covered in royal amounts of frost, and look like miniature pine trees.
Because Matanuska Thunder seeds also thrive in the cold, you’ll sometimes get deep purple buds if the batch was exposed to colder temperatures. The velvety purple sometimes woven into Manatuska nugs makes it an irresistible smoke that never disappoints.
Dominant Cannabinoids Found in Alaskan Thunder Fuck Seeds:
Alaskan Thunder Fuck seeds are THC dominant. In lab tests, ATF buds register between 15%-20% THC on average.
