ATF is famous for its “creeping” onset. This is a potent strain, but the effects are subdued until a few minutes into the experience. Once they begin to manifest, users will note the escalation of a unique high — one with all the indications of a strong sativa combined with the wave of relaxation typical of indica-based strains.
Rather than being overly energetic, the effects are quite playful, impacting emotional happiness and sensory perception. Users will feel a strong sense of clarity throughout the experience, enabling them to carry out many of their daily tasks without staring off into space for too long.
If there’s nothing crucial on the to-do list for the day, the strain lends itself very well to leisurely activities like playing video games or catching up with friends over coffee. Or, if the creative bug happens to be biting, Alaskan Thunderfuck is an ideal supplement to creative activities. Its inherent clarity allows you to jump into the creative process with the chance of actually finishing a draft of whatever story, song or drawing you happen to be working on.
Although these effects are quite strong, they occur gradually and fade out in the same way. This spares users from experiencing the cerebral crash typical of a powerful sativa. Anyone who plans to maintain a steady high throughout the day without crashing down hard should definitely look into Alaskan Thunderfuck.
This is an ideal strain for daytime users, able to accompany them from their first morning coffee through the rest of their planned activities. That said, it’s also versatile enough to use before bed thanks to its relaxing properties, though it definitely won’t be as sedative as a more indica dominant strain. It’s not the type of cannabis that will bind you to the couch with lock and chain, but you’ll definitely be met with the pull of snacking or the munchies at some point during the experience.
