Great name, as if it implies that this is the strain to use if one wants to fuck their own brain. Kidding aside, Matanuska Thunder Fuck is a gentle cannabis that is not overwhelming. Although the assumption is that it is a balanced hybrid, its Sativa effects are more pronounced. Even so, the sedative properties of its Indica side is not to be underestimated.

When it comes to naming cannabis strains, it seems a more suitable name would have something to do with ice. Matanuska Thunder Fuck produces large dense buds that are profoundly covered by frosty crystals.

The exact genetic lineage of Matanuska Thunder Fuck is unknown. As it turns out, any cannabis coming from Matanuska Valley in Alaska is named as such. A popular claim is that the strain is an offspring of Alaskan hybrids, but this could not possibly be true. A more plausible scenario is that cannabis clones were grown in the grasslands of Matanuska Valley, but these are cannabis that came from elsewhere.

Regardless of its origin, what we are certain of is that the legendary Matanuska Thunder Fuck is no longer available. Instead, what is available in the market are most likely hybrids of the original strain.

Matanuska Thunder Fuck is also known by another name, Matanuska Tundra.

Effects

What can be expected from using Matanuska Thunder Fuck, provided one were to get ahold of a few ounces? While we listed the strain as a balanced hybrid, chances are high that it is Sativa dominant. Instead of a thundering onset of cerebral high, the onslaught begins gently before its effects intensify.

No, this cannabis is not known for leaving a user in a couch-lock, but that is also assuming that one used a moderate amount. In most cases, the cerebral high combined with the body relaxation leads one to feel generally happy.

It smells like chocolate with lingering fruity odor. For most smokers, they would find the fragrance highly agreeable.

For some, especially those with higher tolerance levels, rather than only feeling relaxation, the strain could offer a little energy boost. If so, then it could prove useful in dealing with constant fatigue.

Finally, as the effects of the Matanuska Thunder Fuck recedes, some are bound to feel hungry. Good thing this strain does not leave one too lazy to move or else getting food might become an ordeal.

One thing to note here is that there are variants of this strain that is Indica dominant. If that is the strain used, couch-lock is almost a certainty.

Growing

Matanuska Thunder Fuck can be grown both outdoor and indoor, as well as inside a greenhouse. One thing that makes it a great choice for growing is that it does not exceed 2-1/2 feet. As such, most people with tight spaces in their homes could cultivate this strain.

So as long as the plant is cultivated in a Mediterranean climate, it should grow well. Some work is needed, though, as the plant is bushy and because the buds are large and heavy, some support may have to be installed to prevent broken stems or branches.

Indoor, while it can be grown in soil, a better way is to use hydroponics combined with Screen of Green (SOG) method. Doing so results in an explosive growth which cuts down on the vegetation period.

Flowering Time

Indoors
In as little as 8 to 9 weeks, growers could have in their hands a reminder of Alaska. Seeing the frosty crystals covering the buds are a delight to the eyes. Even better is having a better than average harvest of 12 to 14 ounces per square meter.

Outdoors
It takes a little more time before Matanuska Thunder Fuck is ready for harvest if planted outdoors and compared to hydroponics. Regardless, by mid to late October, growers should have no less than 14 ounces per plant.

Matanuska Thunder Fuck Strain Review

MTF is the real McCoy.

3.0 rating
27 June 2020

I have had MTF strain for 20 years almost and it stands alone,,then and now. Drop you like a bad habit every time as you don’t build a resistance to it and it has long legs. Let em smoke what they have then drop a MTF white bone on em and watch em start to disappear to the shadows. No kids or cripples.
