Northern lights

Northern Lights, also known as “NL,” is an indica marijuana strain made by crossing Afghani with Thai. Northern Lights well received by growers, medical patients, and recreational consumers and may be one of the most popular Indica strains of all time known by many as a two hit and quit strain. Northern Lights slams the body into a wonderfully numbing and lazy mode. Consumers say this strain has a pungently sweet and spicy flavor profile that is smooth on the exhale. Medical marijuana patients choose Northern Lights to help relieve symptoms associated with depression, stress, pain and insomnia.

Since 1985, when Sensi Seeds first commercialized this strain, Northern Lights has been a landmark Indica strain in cannabis culture. Northern Lights #5 — arguably the most popular Northern Lights phenotype — won the Cannabis Cup in 1989, 1990, and 1992. Sensi Seeds currently offers feminized, non-feminized, and autoflowering Northern Lights seeds.

Northern Light’s exact lineage and history are obscured in mystery but it is generally believed to be a mix of two landrace building block strains – Thai and Afghani. We do know that the strain was perfected in Holland and has only begun to make its way to America in more recent years.

Northern Lights like most of its Indica-based ancestors and descendants, is highly recommended for evening use. It is one of the purest Indica strains around (95 pct. Indica, 5 pct. Sativa) which make it a highly sedative strain. It is also often chosen to relieve the effects of stress and anxiety. Many choose it for the heavy body high to weaken their chains of chronic pain as well. And the strong appetite inducing effects are used to help those suffering from such eating disorders as anorexia.

Accompanying this body high is a nice sense of well-being and happiness. Some experienced users are reportedly instilled with increased creativity and focus as well. The average negative culprits persist – dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, paranoia and anxiety in higher doses.

Northern lights  GROWING INFO

Northern Lights is a strain that is known for being seriously easy to grow. It is a relatively small to average growing plant, with distinctive amount of resinous buds. This strain cannabis can be grown indoors and also outdoors for all experienced growers. It may have originated in Washington in the 1970s, prior to reaching the Netherlands, where breeder Neville Schoenmaker pioneered several Northern Lights phenotype in the ’80s for The Seed Bank, an early iteration of Sensi Seeds.

The strain flowers for six to eight weeks and yields up to 125 grams per square meter. In the average greenhouse setup Northern Lights produces roughly 100 grams per plant. This strain is a definite choice for those that prefer quality and ease over quantity. Ever since its emergence on the medical scene there have been many imitations however and plenty of growers have crossed it with something but kept the same name.

This plant can flourish into a tree when kept in full sunlight and tended to carefully, but is generally not a fussy plant to care for, and is great for beginner growers looking for indica landrace seeds.

Indoor Flowering Time

This indica strain reportedly takes an average of 7 to 9 weeks to flower, although there are times when it is ready for harvest after only 7 weeks. Northern Lights cannabis strain can yield an average of 18 ounces per square meter in a healthy indoor environment.

Outdoor Flowering Time

When kept in its preferred West Coast sunny climate, this strain can give a generous harvest. This indica dominant landrace seed can produce an estimate of up to 22 ounces per plant, and is usually ready for harvest around the middle of October. Great for an outdoor grow in Colorado right before it gets below 40 degrees for the winter.

  4. 3 out of 5

    This strain is nothing to write home about. Don’t get me wrong, it is potent and delivers a good high. But that’s it! The high is very generic, with no real personality to it. It’s like someone who never got high listened to what other people had to say, and developed a strain based on that second hand information.

  5. 5 out of 5

    Northern Light is One of the most resinous strains I have ever had. Best quality and best price as well. Would refer my friends to order it!
