It’s quiz time. What do you get when you pair two of Alaska’s iconic staples – a slice of Moose’s Tooth pizza and MTF?
A truly epic Alaskan experience.
MTF has been used by outsiders as a generic term for the potent strains grown in Alaska since the ‘70s. However, this offering from ALASKAbuds is anything but generic.
With golden-hued and fat-bodied nugs that taper to a point and beg to be broken off and smoked, we found they busted apart easily into chunks that fit perfectly in the bowl. Crumbling the flower released a deep, earthy, sage-like fragrance that filled our nostrils with a dank aroma. The scent carried through the intake, revealing a shadowy herbal bouquet coupled with a hint of cinnamon. The exhale opened the flavors even further and we could really taste the rich herbal overtones, backed by a more distinct cinnamon taste.
The initial hits of this 20.89% sativa produced a mild euphoria that continued to develop as the minutes passed. The final effect was a very pleasant and energizing body high accompanied by a low-key energy boost. We weren’t bouncing off the walls, but we weren’t stuck on the couch either. MTF gave us a feeling that we could choose to get chores done or concentrate on a good book.
The high lasted well past the first hour and deep into our second and third slices of Moose’s Tooth ‘White’ pizza. The pizza’s Mediterranean toppings (sun-dried tomatoes/artichoke hearts/feta cheese) and delicious white sauce balanced the earthy flavors of the flower perfectly. The combined aromas floating around the room were to die for.
For any of you planning on hosting 21+ guests this summer, this is the combo you want to serve up. Heck, even if you’re a lifelong Alaskan, there’s no better way to remind yourself of why you choose to live here. Enjoy!
Testing: 20.89% THC
