Q&A with Jorge
Has everyone forgotten about the last great state? I know that strains like our renowned Matanuska Thunder Fuck have showed up on the radar of grow gurus. I’ve been waiting for years for you guys to spotlight our great state. In my extensive travels I have never encountered the quality of the weed that is found in Alaska, not to mention the fact that it is still legal to possess a quarter pound for personal use. Due to our climate, 100 percent of our growing is indoors, which was booming up here as early as the mid 70s. The strains which were originally imported in the 70s are still around and are untainted by modern genetics. Come
check it out! Show us some love!

Dear Professor Greedy,
Alaska is an amazing place! From my friend’s home on the Cook Inlet, we could see three separate mountain ranges, including the active volcano Mt. Readout. The part that really fascinated me was the flora and the permafrost. Since most bacteria cannot grow in the harsh climate, fungus is essential to decompose fallen foliage and wood. More species of mushrooms grow in Alaska than any other state. When I was in Alaska 12 years ago, we smoked Thunder Fuck all the time. It was very good indeed! Today the best version of the strain can be found at Sagarmatha Seeds. They call it Matanuska Tundra (AKA Matanuska Thunder). I also met quite a few growers and visited a couple of grow shows. Damn, it is cold and wet up there! But judging from the buds in the grow rooms the growers were second to none.
