Strain Report: Alaskan Thunder Fuck

I finally found Alaskan Thunder Fuck! This is a sativa dominant hybrid that has quite a curious lineage and a super high THC content up to 25% THC, which is probably why it put me out $16 per gram.

Genetics

  • Unknown Sativa
  • Unknown Ruderalis
  • Afghani

Smell

This stuff smells really weird, there is a definite earthiness to it while still being very sweet, which makes it remind me of a dirt flavoured Bertie Botts Every Flavour Bean. Very specific, I know, but that’s what I’m here for.

There is also a noticeable lemon rind after note in the aroma. Really beautiful stuff here.

Density

This is my first time having this stuff, and I did purchase AAAA grade flower, so this may not always be the case, but what a beautifully dense bud I got. It makes an audible ‘Crack’ as you break a piece away and put it into the grinder. Feels like a moon rock, almost. Crazy.

Smoke

Ok so this is a heavy smoke. Be ready for that, first. Expect an ammonia- sour flavour from this strain on the exhale. A touch citrusy with a strong piney mango and forest floor flavour (no, I have not licked a forest floor).

Effect

This strain snuck up on me, which I am not used to. One dose and I just started doing productive things and singing and having a nice day, whereas usually I am constantly needing to smoke to keep up my energy. The lady at the shop warned me that it is supposed to be snacky, though RIGHT NOW I am not experiencing that any more than your typical stuff.

With Alaskan Thunder Fuck you can expect extreme euphoria, strong mood elevation, and an increased appreciation for music. One small dose made me stop writing this review and go write a few new songs for a while… Similar to Pineapple Express in the way where it seems to encourage me to think outside the box. Extremely long lasting for me, I usually get 45 minutes off of a dose of cannabis, but in this case I was dosing every 2.5 hours! Amazing strength!

***Terpene information coming to my reviews soon!***

Overall

I need more of this stuff, what an absolute treat. I would recommend this to you any day, any time (except maybe night time). This is an amazing strain to have a fun, free day. Arguably the best sativa hybrid I have ever had. Must try.

The Importance of Soil PH

The pH of the soil has a direct impact on the fertility of the soil. If you’re serious about your garden or vegetables and fruits which you are growing in your garden, it is important to know about the pH of the soil. Depending on the pH, your soil can be acidic or alkaline. Each of these has its own pros and cons. Also, the pH level of the soil has a direct impact on the nutrients which are available in the soil. Owing to this very factor, you have to always be aware of the pH levels of the soil.

Before you bring out your pH scale, you have to understand the levels on it. The pH scale can go from 1 to 14. 7 is considered neutral. If the pH level is below 7, it is considered as acidic. On the other hand, if the pH level is above 7, it is considered as alkaline. If you’re looking for the optimumpresence of nutrients in the soil, you have to ensure that the pH level is around 6 to 7. Even thoughthis is the ideal level but anything between 3.5 to 10 will provide you with the conducive environment for growing your plants.

One thing which you have to keep in mind is that a slight variation in pH can result in drastic variation in nutrients. This is because each number on the pH scale is to a factor of 10. That is whyyou have to be very careful when you’re looking to maintain the pH level of your soil.

You will now look at both the soil options in order to help you better understand which one is suitable for your garden.

 

Acidic soil

Acidic soil is often found in areas which has a significant amount of rainfall. The main problem with acidic soil is that the nutrients will be absorbed by the soil at a much slower pace. In many of the cases, the amountof nutrients which are found are pretty low. Also, when you’re using fertilizers on acidic soil, they will yield a little result because absorption will not take place.

Solution:

When you’re looking to increase the pH level of the soil so that it is not acidic, a good option is to add agricultural limestone. When you’re adding limestone, it will replace calcium as well as magnesium. This will help you in increasing the pH level of the soil.

 

Alkaline soil

If the pH level of the soil is pretty high because it is alkaline you can easily add organic matter in order to reduce the pH levels. It is much easier to manage the alkaline soil as compared to the acidic soil. You need to test the soil and in order to find out about the sodium contents. Oftentimes, in the alkalinesoil,the sodium content is on the higher side. If it is so, it will hamper the growth of your plants. That is whyit is important to solve the problem of high pH levels when you’re having an alkalinesoil.

Solution:

As we stated above, you can easily add decomposed organic matter. In addition to that, you can use foliarspray or liquid seaweed.

 

All in all, when you’re planning on starting some new plants, it is important to know about the pH level of the soil. Only once you are able to do that will it become easier for you to choose the right kind of plants for your perfect garden.
