The true genetics of ATF are debated among the cannabis community. The generally accepted story is that a strain from Northern California was crossed with a ruderalis variety from Russia. Ruderalis is a contested subspecies/related species of cannabis native to Asia and Central/Eastern Europe. Due to shorter growing seasons and the extreme nature of the climates, ruderalis varieties are smaller and shorter. Generally, ruderalis naturally possess lower levels of THC. Eventually, in the late 1970's, the sativa version of ATF was mixed with an Afghani plant to foster a stronger, more balanced strain. A feature in High Times in the mid-1970s planted the strain into the cannabis world, where it has grown ever since.
