If you’re judging based on its name alone, MTF (also known as Matanuska Thunder Fuck, Alaskan Thunder Fuck, and Humble Warrior) might sound like it’ll really screw up your headspace. Fortunately, though, most tokers can enjoy this genetically mysterious, evenly balanced hybrid since its simultaneously stimulating and soothing effects are far from overwhelming.

The MTF strain offers up a delicious flavor combo of sweet, chocolatey, herbal, and nutty notes. With each toke, you’ll taste:
MTF Strain Information
The MTF strain is 50% sativa and 50% indica, with an average THC content of about 17%. This strain is also heavy in myrcene (the terpene that tastes earthy, musky, fruity, and slightly sweet) and contains nearly 1% CBD, 1% CBG, and nearly 0.5% CBN.
After a few tokes, you’ll notice MTF’s sativa side kick in first, with euphoric, slightly spacey, creative, and giggle-inducing effects. As your high wears on, MTF’s pain-relieving indica effects will gradually creep up on you. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself feeling remarkably relaxed, mega munchy, and you will probably end up seeking out a soft surface where you can kick back, snack, and chill.

Where The MTF Strain Is Grown
MTF hails from the Matanuska-Susitna Valley in Alaska, but no one knows what the genetic lineage of the strain is. Fun fact: While MTF and ATF are often thought of as the same strain, many folks say that’s not true. Both strains are said to hail from Alaska, but tokers report that MTF has a much more calming effect than its ATF relative.
MTF Strain Summary
MTF might become your new BFF if you’re looking for an afternoon- or early-evening-appropriate, balanced strain that’ll leave you feeling mentally stimulated, physically soothed, and downright spectacular. If you love this strain’s effects but want to test out something new, try Jack Frost, Cherry Bomb, or Jack Herer, all of which have similar effects. For something a bit more energizing, try Trainwreck, and when you need something considerably more calming, Blackberry Trainwreck might fit the bill.
