Northern lights #5 is not the same things as northern lights. There are strains and specimens missing .
Indica Dominant Hybrid -95% Indica / 5% Sativa
THC: 22% - 26%, CBD: 1%, CBN: 1%Northern Lights #5 is not only an award winning strain, but it has been well received and has managed to become immensely popular amongst the masses. It is an indica dominant strain with 95:5 indica/sativa ratio. Since it has 26% THC content, it manages to slam the body into a numbing but equally wonderful lazy mode. Northern Lights #5 looks ordinary and is medium green in color with orange hairs surrounding it. It smells sweet, piney and tangy. It tastes just the same as it smells, but first time smokers are advised to stay clear of it. It is known to be a one hit wonder and the high is overwhelming. It is enough to knock you out for hours. However, you will feel happy and will realize a sense of well-being. For experienced users, it can even instill a sense of creativity all the while increasing focus and concentration. It is true that the strain does have its drawbacks. Negative culprits like paranoia, anxiety and dizziness do exist if the strain is smoked in high doses. But there is no denying the fact that it is a pure sedative strain. With the right quantities a patient can overcome the effects of anxiety and stress. But there are those who prefer it to relieve chains of chronic pain at the same time. Additionally, it is also perfect for individuals suffering from anorexia and eating disorders.

Only ever had this strain one single time. About 20 years ago, a friend and I won $80 playing video poker in Portland, OR and so we went looking to score some weed and some acid off the streets. We were highly successful! We found the acid first and then the weed. The female contact we met for the weed purchase told us that we were getting Northern Lights #5. The buds were utterly blanketed with crystal trichomes and were clearly no ordinary "street weed". Later that night, after ditching a party where we took the acid (we were starting to feel paranoid), we walked a mile to a nearby cemetery where we knew we could hang and not be disturbed by anyone since it was late at night and dark by that time. We broke out that weed and after just one pipe hit apiece, our paranoia went bye bye and the two of us were experiencing some of the most intense, relaxed euphoria that any person can possibly feel. This was a true peak experience (as in better than your first sex-- the acid had something to do with that, I think) for me and I've never forgotten it! If you like indicas and you come across this strain, you should be willing to pay absolute top dollar for it!!
" Since it is an indica dominant strain, it has a 95:5 sativa/indica ratio." Um...huh? Great strain though. Very piney. Wish it was around more.
Always one of my favorite go-to strains! This is one of the first I ever smoked and I always go back to it in times of doubt. The sweet fruity flavor and the one-hitter effects keep me coming back for more.
Strong one of my go to
