Hoping to spice up your love life? Atomic Northern Lights is your bud. You might want to duck for cover ’cause this strain is the bomb.

Those hoping to make the most out of a solo mission may even find a friend in this euphoric bud.

Strain details

The Atomic Northern Lights strain is a flower with some history. An offspring of the more famous indica, Northern Lights, Atomic Northern Lights has a complex lineage that includes several rounds of backcrossing on at least a couple of different continents.

The strain began as a three-time award-winning Sensi Seeds creation, but it ended up in the “laboratory” of the Canadian breeder, Doctor Atomic.

The overall result is a fairly potent strain that tends to produce between 14 and 24 percent THC. Samples under 15 percent THC are recommended for novice consumers, while 24 percent may even be on the strong side for cannabis regulars. However, this strain is considered quite relaxing and produces a full-bodied high.

The smell of Atomic Northern Lights alone seems intoxicating. This flower has a pungent aroma with a deep, earthy base and topped with a sweet skunkiness. For those who enjoy social drinking, Atomic Northern Lights would pair nicely with a little of your favorite bourbon.

This strain has a floral quality, which is perhaps provided by the presence of the terpene (aroma molecule) linalool. Linalool is also found in lavender.

The Atomic Northern Lights experience

Atomic Northern Lights may be touted as the viagra of weed, but there are a few major differences. Unlike the popular blue pill, there’s not much risk of having an erection that lasts longer than four hours. Instead, this hybrid provides a chillax and mellow vibe that makes just about any situation more pleasurable, sex and eating included.

If you consume a little too much, however, you may find yourself more sleepy than frisky. When used in moderation, cannabis is thought to enhance the sexual experience. If consumed in excess, the opposite might happen. As an indica-dominant hybrid, this strain will likely be just too darn sedative for sex in high doses.

Atomic Northern Lights is an extremely relaxing and happy hybrid, which makes it easy to get into a lighthearted and playful mood. The effects tend to come on slowly, creeping into your body and mind. Great for those seeking relief from muscle tension, Atomic Northern Lights helps loosen up limbs and eases both physical and mental stress.

If it isn’t clear by now, this strain is great for getting it on. However, that’s not the only reason people use this strain. Atomic Northern Lights is beloved by medical cannabis patients for relief from pain and insomnia. However, those suffering from nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite, and headaches may also appreciate this strain.

The Atomic Northern Lights strain is also popular among those with mental health conditions like depression, post-traumatic stress, and anxiety. While this flower can cause dizziness and paranoia in high doses, it is uplifting and euphoric in moderation. Pick up Atomic Northern Lights for the end of a long day or on a rainy afternoon.
