There’s a lot of debate about the origins of the Alaskan Thunder seeds strain. These seeds originated as Matanuska Tundra weed in the Matanuska Valley, north of Anchorage. Some reputable sources say that Thunder is the same weed while others reckon that it’s been crossed. It shows traits of indica, sativa, and some ruderalis.
The strain has a rather pungent aroma that is combination of citrus, pine, and perfume with a nicely sharp smell in general. The taste has a light sweetness with creamy quality that feels cool on the throat, expanding readily on larger hits.
When taken, users can feel more relaxed, warm and capable throughout the experience. Although most users feel a little drained by the end, the feeling is generally physically relaxed.
Alaskan Thunder can be cultivated both indoors and outdoors. When grown indoors, it can only normally grow up to three feet, producing a moderate to high yield. However, when grown outdoors, the plant normally finishes around four to five feet producing high quality amount of yields. Since Alaskan Thunder seeds have northern heritage, it is ideal for growing outdoors at more northern latitudes.
Whatever the origins, the results are beyond question. Alaskan Thunder cannabis seeds produce very strong weed with a heavy, heavy stone that creeps up on you and hangs around for a long time. It can be quite sleepy on the way back down. It has an exceptionally high THC content and is also high in CBD giving a very heady smoke overall. There is an earthy, musky smell and a distinctive chocolaty taste.
The strain is given to treat conditions such as pain relief, migraines, depression, anxiety, nausea, and other stress-related conditions. Its knock-out qualities make it good for sleep and pain relief.
It is, in fact, considered as a true powerhouse in the medical marijuana world. It is renowned for its potency.
