Northern Lights Experience


You will be hard-pressed to find an Indica more popular than Northern Lights — there’s a good reason this strain is the winner of the most marijuana awards in the world too. This nighttime strain is well-known for its fast acting, heavy hitting effects. Many marijuana consumers quickly find themselves sinking into the couch in a state of euphoric bliss. You may also notice that you've meandered into the kitchen in search of some tasty snacks.

Unlike most Indica-dominants these days, this strain is over 90% Indica. This strain's exact heritage is unknown, but it's thought to be a mix of Afghani and Thai landrace strains.

Recreational marijuana consumers will appreciate this strain's happy, relaxing effects. This is the perfect weed for a rainy day or when you just need to sit back and de-stress.

 

Traits of Northern Lights and Northern Lights Seeds


Marijuana enthusiasts often describe the scent of this strain as earthy and herbal with hints of spice. The THC content in Northern Lights typically hovers between 16 and 19%, making it decently potent. Novice cannabis consumers may find themselves a little more sedated than they expect, but this strain is generally mild-mannered.

This strain's seeds produce some incredibly sticky, delicate buds. A generous dusting of trichomes and a knotting of orange pistils will leave marijuana enthusiasts licking their lips, as will the sweet honey-like aroma.
