Strain Summary: The Matanuska Valley is well known for its exceptional ability to grow vegetables. MTF is not so much a strain. It refers to virtually any marijuana grown in the Matanuska Valley. The Matanuska valley is a location that has an optimal growing season and extremely fertile soil. Consequently, seeds bought from the mainstream seed banks/breeders tend to grow to their optimal potential in the valley.
The Matanuska Thunderfuck marijuana strain has a dirty name and a nasty reputation for unbridled power. She hails from the baddest state of all: Alaska – and she is known as and sold outside of the USA as Matanuska Tundra (oh how much more proper…). She is a mostly-Indica strain (originally) and offers very strong painkilling properties. Matanuska Thunderfuck cannabis is a medicinal variety that keeps gaining favor everywhere she travels.
Matanuska Thunder Fuck refers to any good cannabis coming out of the Matanuska Valley in Alaska since the early 70s. If you research the history of Palmer, you will find that it was/is a government agriculture experimental station. The original families who moved here for this experiment had children in Palmer around the 40′s & 50′s that were influenced by the hippie movement and the influx of their kind to the Matanuska-Susitna Valley around the beginning of the 70′s. With the knowledge those children gained, while working with their parents on their family farms growing up, and from the projects they were involved in at the experimental station as college students, and from a few new found hippy friends from the west coast of the US, they began flower-forcing by blacking out greenhouses during the summer. None made clones. They did remove males, and they knew how to prepare the cannabis for market. So with that, people in Alaska started to see some green bud as opposed to imported bud, and it was all coming out of the valley. By the 80′s, only a few of those people remained. Some were busted. Others moved on. Those that remained began taking clones and growing indoors.
