About this Alaska Strain
Alaska Strain is a sativa dominant cannabis strain great for daytime use because of its uplifting, energizing effects. Lineage is unknown although it comes from the Tikum Olam in Israel. THC levels are extremely high in Alaska, ranging between 20-29%. The high hits fast, along with an uplifting euphoria. Expect to get a lot of work done with a clear-headed focus. Alaska is often used to treat inflammation, pain, nausea.
There must be something in the water in Israel — THC was first discovered there in 1964, and the team at Tikun Olam have since refined its cultivation, achieving eye-popping levels of up to 30% THC with Alaska.
Alaska strain is marked by medium to large flowers that have an elongated shape. Rather than the “nuggets” typically associated with more indica-dominant varieties, these flowers are elongated in almost cylindrical shapes, like mini cypress trees. The soft leaves spiral loosely outward from their central stems and have a piecey, fluffy appearance. These leaves are a bright shade of spring green and are twisted through with rust-colored pistils. Finally, amber trichomes give Alaska’s buds a slight yellow sheen and make them particularly resinous to the touch.
Holding a cured flower of Alaska to the nose yields mostly peppery, almost savory notes. On closer inspection, there is also an underlying dankness, similar to damp earth. Meanwhile, grinding up or picking apart Alaska’s spindly flowers gives off some skunky pungency. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Alaska burns with an acrid smoke that can easily tickle the palate and the sinuses. This smoke tastes spicy with some hints of pine and cedar on the exhale.
